Kelsey finds out her family is facing some money trouble and lets her uncle talk her into auctioning herself to the highest bidder as a 'mistress' and that could have gone so horribly because there's this super-depraved woman-beater bidding on her, but she's rescued by Derek Malory, which is great because he's gorgeous and rich and nice. Old, evil guy is still obsessed, though, so there's some suspense here, too. Also, some secrets revealed about the eldest Malory, Derek's father which sets us up nicely for the next book, The Present. ( )

I couldn't put this book down. I stayed up late last night to finish this book. I knew if I had tried to go to sleep I wouldn't because I wanted to reach the ending of this book. I also realized that this is the first book I had ever read by Johanna Lindsey. It had be about 10 years or more since I read this and I still loved it this time around.

Say You Love Me is the romance of Derek Malory, heir to the Marquis of Haverston and Kelsey Langton. Kelsey is a lady but Derek does not know this when he purchases her at an auction just to thwarts Lord Ashford who is known to beat his whores.

Kelsey is talked into selling herself to help her uncle avoid the creditors. She has to lie and she knows that once she does this she will never be able to marry. She has to tell a story of why she talks and acts like a lady.

When they start falling in love with each other it is interesting. And seeing Derek's Uncles James and Tony noticing how much Derek is smitten with Kelsey. Only one family member learns the truth and that is Reggie. She knew when she first met Kelsey at the dress makers that they would be great friends.

Lord Ashford kidnaps Kelsey as she is leaving the dressmakers one day. Luckily James has his butler tailing Lord Ashford and know that he has taken a woman. When James learns about it and hears the description he knows it has to be Kelsey. This is when I just couldn't stop reading. I needed to reach the end and know what would happen to Kelsey and Derek.

I cannot wait to read the next book in this series. ( )

Typical Lindsey historical. Overblown emotional yarn with great characters. Quick read. ( )
