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.

    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.

    "LOVED IT! WILL LISTEN TO IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It needs to be noted that this is the 2nd book of Dreaming of You by Lisa Kleypas.

    I recommend this book, it about Lilly's friend Derek Craven.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The entire story line was really good.


    Which character – as performed by Rosalyn Landor – was your favorite?

    Rosalyn was amazing in Derek voice, it's written in the book, he had the heavy english accent, it was hard to understand (more like street talk from a poor neighborhood). My opinion she did a good job!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The Gambler!

    "Good Story - Disappointing Narration"

    The male accents were a deal breaker. Usually I like Landor's narrations, but the lead males' voice was so thoroughly unattractive (and it wasn't the attempt at the cockney accent - he just sounded thick!) I just couldn't get past it…

    Story
    "A romance that's actually ROMANTIC"

    An old fashioned sweet, innocent yet plucky heroine; a rough-around-the-edges protective hero... With more humor and charm than I've heard in a story in a long time = a book I'll listen to over and over and recommend to friends! The reader is one of the best in the field, and does an exceptional job with the characters/accents involved.
    A+

    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.
