Publisher's Summary

A prim, well-bred gentlewoman, Sara Fielding is a writer who puts pen to paper to create dreams. But now curiosity is luring her from the shelter of her country cottage into the dangerous world of Derek Craven – handsome, tough, and tenacious – and the most exciting man Sara has ever met.

Derek rose from poverty to become the wealthy lord of London's most exclusive gambling house. And now duty demands that he allow Sara Fielding to enter his perilous realm of ever-shifting fortunes – with her impeccable manners and her infuriating innocence. But there is a hidden strength and sensuality to the lady that captivates him beyond his better judgment. And in this world, where danger lurks behind every shadow, even a proper “mouse” can be transformed into a breathtaking enchantress – and a cynical gambler can be shaken to his core by the power of passion and the promise of love.

    "Worthy of the hype. Truly wonderful story."

    I don't need to write too much here, as this is a highly beloved and acclimed Kleypas novel. So I'll give my experience with the audio book.
    The book that is before this one: I believe it's Then came You, with Alec and Lilly, was one of my Kleypas favorites.
    I went straight on to listen to this and couldn't get into it at first. I had Kleypas burn-out: I had listened to nearly evey audible book she authored, and all in one month... So I took a couple of months reading other authors, and finally came back to this. It really annoyed me that the one book I didnt get into was such a favorite for everyone else. I was left out :) Most Kleypas reviewers, authors, readers, etc considered Dreaming of You to be their favorite novel. So 3 or 4 months later, I find myself so silly and in love with this story . It's heartbreakingly sweet, sensual, interesting, enchanting, just a fantastic read!

    Lisa kleypas never dissapoints me. But this stands out. And together with Rosalyn Landors, this is the romance dream team... :) Seriously Landors IS the voice of most of my favorite characters. Even The Bride...

    Highly recommended. I would start with "Then Came You" (prequel about Lily and Alec. One of my three favorite LK books) then read this. What a treat.

    Don't you just love Derek Craven???

    Fabulous book. Story and narration are both spot-on.

    Another winner by Lisa Kleypas and Rosalyn Landor.

    Story
    "Dreams can come true"
    If you could sum up Dreaming of You in three words, what would they be?

    Hope, Dreams, Love


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dreaming of You?

    The description of the destruction of a place in the story.


    What does Rosalyn Landor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She was good at portraying the characters and making Derek seem more vulnerable and strong at the same time.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Nothing. Would like listening to another book narrated by Rosalyn Landor.

    "another winner"

    Ms. Kleypas has a real talent for writing love stories that grab your interest and keeps it through out the entire book. I also just love how she writes a different book about every character in her series, how each of them have to earn their happily ever after. I rate all her books at least a 4 star rating with the exception of the 2 Russian books which I felt didn't quite measure up to her usual standard. I always look for her books when perusing my wish list and hers are usually the first that go into my cart. This book was especially sweet as I was drawn to Derrick when I read Lilly's story and wondered what she would do with his character.
    I throughly enjoyed the book, another good job Ms. Klepas and of course no fault can ever be found with the narrator Rosalyn Landor.

    "All around Incredible book."

    This is such a great read. The plotting, characters, secondary characters, location, friends, fashion, and passion all very consistently high quality. I did not enjoy the narrator's portrayal of Derek Craven. I also think his name should've been Crave because Craven means coward and that was a weird name for a good guy.

    There comes a time when you have to choose between listening to audible or going to bed.

    "Fallen"

    This second book in the series was a great follow up to the first book in the series. I love how most of Lisa Kleypas characters are crossed referenced in other books. This book drew me in from the beginning. I couldn't put it down. This book was well worth the credit.

    "About Time!"

    For years and many enjoyable stories we have read tidbits about the infamous CRAVENS GAMING CLUB, and FINALLY we have his and its story!

    This STORY was definitely worth every moment of waiting. Mrs. Kleypas NEVER disappoints her readers. The story is beautiful, funny, heart warmingly endearing to ALL of the characters. I cannot wait to read any NEW stories that come along (soon I hope) and reread all of the previous ones that already exsist.

    "One of Kleypas's best"

    For a long time this was my favorite romance novel. After reading --and listening--to this again, it still is one of the very best.
    Derek and Sara are wonderful together. The deep love and respect they have for each other is so touching. The dialogue is good and the sexual scenes are top notch. This has a good story and has all the elements of a satisfying romance. The reader does the various voices and accents well. Rosalyn Landor reads a lot of novels like this and does a reasonable job of portraying the emotions of the characters.
    Highly recommend this one!
