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.

    Time spent commuting passes by much easier listening to books. I prefer romance books but I do enjoy other books as well.

    "This Is An All Time Favorite Book For Me"
    Any additional comments?

    I actually read this book for the first time a long time ago. I've read it and listened to it multiple times since then and it never gets old. So, since I didn't review it before, I'm reviewing it now.

    Derek and Sarah's story is just everything you could ask for in a great romance. I've laughed and cried each time. You can just feel the love coming from this story as if it were something tangible that you could reach out and touch.

    I won't go into the particular parts of the story. I wouldn't want to spoil it for anyone but when you get to the part when the club burns down, you better grab some tissues. The action and drama in this story will keep you on the edge of your seat all the way to the end and the love emanating from this couple will warm your heart.

    I am a HUGE fan of Lisa Kleypas. I've purchased everything she's ever written and will continue to as long as she keeps writing. If you look at the overall ratings of her books you'll see that most of them rate a 4 or higher. There's a reason for that and this book lives up to it. She has a lot of cross over characters between books which I also like. It gives you little glimpses of how the characters are doing in their lives.Which is something I like. I like seeing how they are doing. I would still like to see her write Derek and Sarah's children's stories.

    The Narrator: Rosalyn Landor is an excellent for historical romance narrator. She's not overly stodgy, her voices are well defined and her acting is good.She may be excellent at other types too but my experience with her has only been with her reading the historical period romances.

    "Barf. Seriously."
    What would have made Dreaming of You better?

    Characters and plot are trite and predicable. The Heroine is laughable.

    Yes


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Rosalyn Landor?

    Yes


    What character would you cut from Dreaming of You?

    It wouldn't help.

    "Blah!"

    Not a terribly interesting story - but the worst part is the narration of the male lead.... just awful!! I think Ms. Landor's narration of the story line and the female parts were lovely, but she really butchered the male lead.

    "Great story.."
    Any additional comments?

    BUT.. the narrator did an absolutely horrible job on Derek's voice. I hated the sound of him in "Then Came You" but he was taking lessons in speach so I went ahead and got this book thinking his voice would be changed-up to suit a hero. How wrong I was! In the other book he always sounded like a big dumb oaf and that's how he sounded during this entire book. It was just terrible and I can't believe everyone who left a review didn't mention it, though some did.
    Landor did a good job on Lady Ashby's voice (eww, what a horrible woman) and Tabitha's and Lord and Lady Raiford and Worthy, well, just about everyone in the book. But she totally screwed up Derek every time he opened his mouth. Such a shame..
    I've found, with Rosalyn Landor, that's it's always a hit-or-miss when it comes to her narration and this was the biggest miss yet.
    I gave her two stars because she did so well with everyone else but NOT on the most important one.

    "SURPRISINGLY BORING"

    Hour after hour of the same thing: the heroine being soft-spoken and perfect, the hero feeling inadequate of the heroine and remaining emotionally reserved throughout the book. It became so very monotonous. Also, the hero was never really brought to life but remained a flat character that never stirred any attachment or reaction from the reader/listener. Add to that, hours of mundane domestic scenes and one of the dullest endings I have encountered in a while. I found this narrator, who usually adds enjoyment to the experience, quite monotonous here too.

    "Great story line, great love story...."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dreaming of You to be better than the print version?

    i love the audio versions to print because the narrators bring such life to the characters..

    Story
    "I love this book!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this audiobook to my friends because I absolutely adore this story. This has to be one of my favorite books from Lisa Kleypas. I have read and listened to this book more than any other romance I have. The thing is, I hated the way that Rosalyn Landor read both of the main characters; Derek Craven's voice being the worst. I usually really like her narrations, but the voices she chose for Sarah and Derek suck. Therefore it irritates me to hear, but it is not a real detraction from the love story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked Derek Craven the most. For me, if the Hero is written properly it makes the whole story that much sweeter, and I liked the tortured hero that Kleypas has created in this one. I have a soft spot for darker male leads who can't stop loving or spoiling the hell out of the love of his life.


    What aspect of Rosalyn Landor’s performance would you have changed?

    The way she read Sarah Fielding and Derek Craven's voices. Especially Derek's though.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yep
