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.

    "Not worth your time and credit"
    What disappointed you about Dreaming of You?

    Flat story. Characters are unrealistic, bland and underdeveloped. Some emotions or behaviors were well characterized but overall this is a miss.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lisa Kleypas again?

    No


    How could the performance have been better?

    The performance killed it for me. The female voices were stiff and over articulated. The male voices were horrible. They made me cry and I am still sobbing.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    English was well written. Some aspects poked my wanting to keep listening but there was no connection between the reader and the characters


    Any additional comments?

    Would not waste a credit on this book and avoid this narrator

    Don't you just love Derek Craven???

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

    Another winner by Lisa Kleypas and Rosalyn Landor.

    "Very Disappointing Performance"

    I gave this book a low rating because I hated the way the male characters were performed and the females were only a little bit better. What I enjoy about this type of book is the characters and the narrator. The males all sounded like they were very old and the lead male was even garbled. I kept falling asleep and never even felt like listening to the end. I was very disappointed with the experience.

    "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.

    I only have purchased the audio edition and would not have been able to read the book.

    "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.

    Avid reader time permitting. Love audio books as I can multitask, love being inserted into the time & place of story thru narrators accents.

    "Dreaming of You"

    I spent my entire day listening to this compelling novel! After listening to the audio sample of this book, I bought not only the book, but the audio as well, and I'm so glad I did! For my first book by Lisa Kleypas, this one has me hooked on her writing style and creative characters. "Dreaming of You" is packed with a myriad of unexpected possibilities, depth, and a completely out of the ordinary romantic love story and I would refer this book to anyone interested in a delightful, fast moving, action packed romantic novel. I must say, Roslyn Landor did a wonderful job bringing all of these characters to life through her talent of storytelling, her knowledge of the varied accents and correct pronunciation of the language used by these characters, which of course fueled my imagination while listening. If I had read the book first, I'd say it was a real page turner, but since I listened to the audio version first, I can only say I didn't want to put it down until the end of the story. Now, ill just miss the characters. 😀

    "Loved it again the second time"

    I listened to this book a few years ago, and loved it. I've just finished listening to it again, and again loved it. The characters are complex and interesting, and I really care about the good guys. The plot interesting and suspenseful, and Rosalyn Landor brings all the characters totally alive. As with almost all of Lisa Kleypas' books, I am entranced and moved and entertained by her stories.
