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.

    Story
    "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

    "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.

    "Excellent Historical Romance"

    This book gets two thumbs up for narration, plot, and characters. It was hard to put it down as it kept you engaged throughout the story...even to the conclusion. There were twists and turns and the romance was developed slowly due to a number of obstacles; including Derek's psychological and emotional roadblocks (he is one of the main characters) and the other main character was Sarah. She was delightful and so tenacious right until the end of the book. So as not to spoil it; let me say that if you are a fan of romance, historical drama and silky smooth narration, then get it and have fun!

    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. 😀

    "Perfect"

    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.

    Audible is a really great way to escape into different worlds. I love "reading" and discovering new authors and stories.

    Story
    "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

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

    The Era it was set in


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The voice for the male charachter was almost startling at times! The female characters were perfect pitch though.


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

    No
