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.

    "My favorite"

    "Dreaming of You" is far and away not only my favorite Lisa Kleypas book but my favorite Historical Romance as well. I am not overly in love with the narrator, I have never felt that Sara had a posh voice, and Dareck most certainly didn't. I felt as if the narrator just used her stalk "voice" and didn't think it through.
    However it still gets a full 5 star rating as the story line and intense characters more then make up for any lack on the narrators part.

    "Love it!"

    I love Lisa Kleypas. And the narrator does the mans voice so great. Makes cleaning and laundry day go much faster.

    "Outstanding"

    Once again, Lisa Kleypas and Rosalyn Landor have out done themselves. I found myself in dismay that the book would end. I will surely listen to it again and again.

    "Great book!"

    Great characters and the story is mostly believable. I love that Derek is far from perfect & doesn't magically transform into something he isn't. Of course, it does have an over the top finale that seem to be commonplace in Kleypas novels, but still a great read. Narration is enjoyable as well.

    "Will do the trick if you're addicted to Kleypas..."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    If you're addicted to Kleypas, then you must do what you must. But this book is not as brilliant as any in the Hawthorne or Wallflower series. The original pub date was early 90s and I'd guess it was written before K got her groove. The hero is a little too conflicted, though still sexy. Heroine likable enough. Rosalyn does a great job narrating. So, again, does it in a pinch, especially if you've already listened to Devil in Winter four times....


    Would you recommend Dreaming of You to your friends? Why or why not?

    no. would recommend others before this one.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    nothing


    Could you see Dreaming of You being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    no

    "THE BEST!!"

    This is one of the best stories I have read, and by far the best audio. I have listened to this audio at least 7 times! I just keep coming back to it. I can only think of one book that I have read over my 15 years of reading romance, that I can truely say these same words. And that is Island Flame by Karen Robards. I really love these male heros.

    "One of her Best"

    I adored this book. It is now one of my favorites. These characters have depth, you care for them. The plot was never slow or boring. It grabbed my heart and held it to the end. I will listen to this one again and again.
    Lisa Kleypas is amazing and Rosalyn Landor reads her with perfection. Enjoy!

    "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.

    "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
