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.

Love it!

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

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.

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.

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.

Lisa Kleypas has yet to disappoint

This was a good story, and there was even a little bit of sexual tension that was kind of fun, instead of having people jump right in the sack together. I unfortunately read this book before the first of the series, which was completely an accident and now I have the other one sitting there waiting to read. It was still a great story in spite of that, I just really like having back stories and I could tell pretty close to right away that I had messed up the order. No matter though, it was a great book on its own, and I liked that it was a story in the time period that it was, without having everyone be the Lord or Duke or Duchess. I really liked that it was someone from the slums that came up but didnt think they were better than from where they came. I don’t think that you will be disappointed with the story, however I would recommend reading the first one first. lol

Fallen

This second book in the series was a great follow up to the first book in the series. I love how most of Lisa Kleypas characters are crossed referenced in other books. This book drew me in from the beginning. I couldn't put it down. This book was well worth the credit.

One of Kleypas's best

For a long time this was my favorite romance novel. After reading --and listening--to this again, it still is one of the very best.
Derek and Sara are wonderful together. The deep love and respect they have for each other is so touching. The dialogue is good and the sexual scenes are top notch. This has a good story and has all the elements of a satisfying romance. The reader does the various voices and accents well. Rosalyn Landor reads a lot of novels like this and does a reasonable job of portraying the emotions of the characters.
Highly recommend this one!

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.

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
