    uick review finally completed 103113 FANTASTIC HUGE 5 Stars Dreaming of You is one of the most beautifully told love stories I've read It's full of vibrant and flawed characters that will touch your heart like few other characters will There's nothing new I can say about this slightly heartbreaking yet wonderfully heartwarming story that hasn't already been said other than Derek Craven and Sara Feilding and their love story is why I read romance It doesn't get better than this

    Did my 5th re read of this book yesterday I used to love it really I didBut things changed My views have changed and I can't let the fact that Derek shagged that housewench as a sub for Sara go It felt unclean for me and was so downright disrespectful to women in general No woman should be used for her body like that EnoughAnd this delineation between pure naive Sara and the unclean OTHER women? Yeah that can go to hell I'm sick of that shit

    5 stars – HistoricalRegency RomanceThis is such a beautiful heartrending love story that I savored like the finest Vosges chocolate And it’s no wonder why this is such a sentimental LK fan favoriteDerek Craven dreamy sighAuthor Sara Fielding wants to observe the workings of London’s underground gaming halls for her latest novel including the most famous gambling club of all Craven’s and the notorious man who runs it Derek Craven the sexy cynical hardened cockney son of a prostitute grew up on the rough streets of London and learned to make his way in the dangerous rookeries by any means necessary eventually accumulating vast wealth and power by running a popular thriving gaming club Derek has erected strong defenses and adopted a detached cool blasé façade to hide his emotions protect his heart and conceal his longing for the things in life he doesn’t think he deserves and can never have honor respect trust friendship love and family Of course he never counted on an innocent brave inuisitive genuine mousy and tenderhearted spinster like Sara Fielding shaking up his life and tearing down his walls of self protectionDerek Craven is such an endearing diamond in the rough hero because he’s a tortured soul and deeply flawed yet he has a huge albeit tarnished heart of gold and such vast potential for love; and when he falls for Sara he falls hard and forever The way he cherishes and protects Sara like the world’s greatest treasure is incredibly sweet and romantic Dreaming of You is a poignant passionate story about the invincible power of love that tugs the heartstrings and that stays with you a long time after it’s over Verrry big 5 stars

Alpha male hero ? Endearing heroine ? Its a Check To all threeladies This book really has it all Fast paced and emotionally charged Dreaming of you manages to stay original and fresh to the very last pageDerek Sara sign It was love at first word for me with these two I adored them from the very first pageEven though they were eccentric and so different from each otherTogether they were just two perfect pieces of thepuzzle “I didn't want to give you the one last part of myself that I couldn't take back And then you were gone And I realized it was already yours It had been since the beginning Except that I hadn't told you It drove me mad the thought that you would never know” Would I recommend the book ?

    This book is a beautiful love story Derek Craven is a self made man who is not interested in love and certainly not with a sheltered provincial spinster like Sara But when he falls for her he falls hard The beauty of this story is how deeply Derek comes to love Sara Some of the things he says to her and the way he shows his love move d me intensely when I read it and still do though it has been years since I read this book And Sara is worthy of his love She might be rather plain and certainly unfashionable but she has a great mind and a beautiful heart Derek is not a perfect guy He's not smooth or urbane He doesn't speak well because he grew up in the stews of London but he's one of my all time favorite heroes and certainly my favorite Lisa Kleypas hero He earned this because of the fact that this man was so utterly affected by love for Sara and how he cherishes her And also due to the fact that he pulled himself up from the gutter and made something of himself I love those kinds of heroesheroines This book is in my top 10 of romances easilyRachel Weisz as Sara Fieldingimage error

    I read this book long ago when it first came out It was one of my fav as the tortured hero goes he was the best However I must say looking back on it now I can see that it was an ok read but it also had some uestionable moments like when he first sees her and does not help her out but she saves his life He is a street rat and does not know any other way to be but basic The fact that he does not have sex with her when she throws herself at him says how hard he was trying to do right by her He really does think he can never have her as she is too good and pure and he is who he is So he sends her away and eventually sleeps with another woman who looks like her and calling the heroines name the whole time This poor woman goes to visit the heroine to ask her to come back and tells her all about what he had done and how he is behaving I loved his struggle with his feelings and her emotional and sexual awakeningThis was a great story and the characters came alive off the pages for me Very enjoyable The masked ball was one of my favorite when he discovers that she is the girl under the mask that he is trying to seduce That was hotThis book is not for everyone and I am glad the author glosses over some of the finer details in history so I could enjoy this book

    ALERT ALERT Cheating heroHero was not celibate during the separation I will avoid this book since I had a BAD experience with the last book I read by KleypasForever My LoveForever My Love? Oh really?I don't know if people can understand this but I CONSIDER that a hero is a cheater when AFTER he MEETS the heroine and HAS SEX with her and maybe he started to feel something for her he dumps her and sleeps with other womanwomen This separation was not for YEARSI like my heros being celibate during the separation PERIOD


  9. Mo Mo says:

    Liked this one I always like a tortured hero and Derek Craven really is tortured He feels that because of his upbringing he is unworthy of love especially the love of a sweet person Separately they had different strengths Together they were complete Loved catching up with Lily and Alex again I loved the first bookDerek fights his attraction to Sara She is not even his type a country maiden from a small village He is used to the flirtatious ladies of the ton He was so far from the gallant knights in her romantic fantasies He was tarnished scarred imperfect Derek's breath touched Sara's throat in unsteady urges Sometimes he whispered I'm so close to you and I'm still not close enough I want to share your breath every beat of your heartHe cradled her head in both his hands his mouth hot on her neck Sometimes he murmured I want to punish you a littleWhy?For making me want you until I ache with it For the way I wake at night just to watch you sleeping His face was intense and passionate above her his green eyes sharp in their brightness I want you each time I'm with you It's a fever that never leaves me I can't be alone without wondering where you are when I can have you again His lips possessed hers in a kiss that was both savage and tender and she opened to him eagerly
