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.

    "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.

    Story
    "Country girl intrigues club owner..."

    She is a writer doing research for her book. He is a gambling club owner that will not let his heart get involved. That goes up in smoke when they are drawn together. I liked the small country life component. The obsessed ex-lover stirred the pot.

    "Didn't want to exit the car"

    I really enjoyed this story. No constant drama; just a good romance. The strong accents made it difficult to understand some parts, but I loved the story!

    "A Good Kleypas Experience"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, if the friend liked historical romance.


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

    I'm usually a big fan or Rosalyn Landor's, and this is the first time I rated her with less than four stars. What didn't work for me was her narration for the male protagonist despite the continuity of this voice from the first book of the series. She made him sound like a big oaf rather than an attractive man with a cockney accent. Took away from the experience for me a bit.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked this book better than the first of this series, although both books are a decent listen. Kleypas is one of my favorite historical romance authors, so it's a good bet I'll get something enjoyable when I listen to a book of hers, and this time was no different. The characters were compelling, and I appreciated the dichotomy of the protagonists and their relationship. I also credit Kleypas in that neither the female or male lead were aristocrats, which is typical of this genre.

    I love Epic Fantasy....have become a Historical Romance fan because I am a sucker for a good Happily Ever After. Good characters are a must

    "Book 2 of series ..Bad Boy & Country Miss - YES!!!"

    Loved it! Can't decide if it is better than the first in the series (Then Came You) BUT I know it is just as good! Sarah and Craven are so good together - they don't just fall together - it is a struggle - but when they do - ELECTRIC!

    Just get it with the first book THEN CAME YOU - because you will want to start this second book as soon as the first stops playing!

    "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. <br/><br/>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…
