Publisher's Summary

Zachary Bronson has built an empire of wealth and power, but all London knows he is not a gentleman. He needs a wife to secure his position in society – and to warm his bed in private. But one alluring, unexpected kiss from Lady Holly Taylor awakens a powerful need within him beyond respectability.

An exceptional beauty whose fierce passions match Zachary’s own, Holly always intended to play by society’s rules, even when they clashed with her bolder instincts. But now a dashing stranger has made her a scandalous offer that does not include matrimony. Should she ignore the sensuous promise of a forbidden kiss… or risk everything to follow her heart to a place where dreams begin?

My Favorite LK Book Thus Far

Lisa Kleypas is an excellent author. Rosalyn Landor is an excellent narrator. Put them together and you have......PFM (pure freakin' magic!). I thought my favorite narrator was Davina Porter (who is very, very good, by the way), but Rosalyn Landor does SUCH A FANTASTIC JOB distinguishing between characters, male and female; not just reading Lisa Kleypas' stories, but actually PERFORMING them! She is one talented lady.
This book is a bit different than many romance novels that I have read. I liked the heroine and the hero both and was quite moved by their story. Yes, I realize this is fiction (and romantic fiction at that), but I really came to care about what happened to Holly and Zack. Ms. Kleypas created the exact amount of tension between them and she writes GREAT love scenes.....(phew!) Holly is a very lovable character and I found myself laughing out loud at some of the things she said and thought ("I'm going to make his eyes fall out!"). Zack is a very strong man, not a pushover, but he loves Holly the way I think every woman wants to be loved.
Listening to/reading romance novels is a guilty pleasure of mine so when I find an author who is actually a good storyteller, can create characters that I actually care about, and doesn't use too many cheesy or overdone plots, I seek to read or listen to all of his/her books. LK is my latest find (I haven't been this excited since I discovered Diana Gabaldon over ten years ago) and I will definitely be downloading more of her novels on Audible.

LK is simply awesome. I enjoyed this story very much. The narrator was very good. I had a difficult time putting the book down, and I was disappointed when it ended.

A Perfect Historical Romance!

Lisa Kleypas is an extremely talented author, she has the ability to write historical romance in a way that draws in the reader. You feel like your there and can relate to the main characters struggles of feelings. Throw Rosalyn Landor is as the narrator and it's a combination that can't go wrong. This book was one of my favorites, I loved Holly's character and Zach is definitely my type of man, tall and strong with a dominating personality!

Oh why did it have to end?

The wonderful combination of Lisa Kelypas and Rosalyn Landor kept me hooked on the book. I admit I used to not like R. Landor very much but the more books I have listened to with her narration, the more I have grown to like her. For someone with such a masculine voice she certainly does a wonderful female voice. This is one of my favorite Kleypas books because I can truly see something like this happening in real life. Someone who risks her standing in society and bares the snubbing’s from the Ton to keep the love she desires with a man of lower standing. A definite must read!!!

Where Dreams Begin

What made the experience of listening to Where Dreams Begin the most enjoyable?

Zachary Bronson was so worth the risk! He was bad enough but deep down you knew he was a great guy. Rosalyn Landor is absolutely sensational reading this. It's a must read.

What did you like best about this story?

How both Zachary and Holly fight their feelings, but you could feel the tension between the two!

What does Rosalyn Landor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Rosalyn made this story come alive. I don't think I've listened to anything from her I didn't love.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I hate short books and this lasted me about three full days of cleaning! Well worth the credit or even the full price, it's that good.

Any additional comments?

If you have never read Lisa Kleypas before, make sure you get her Wallflower series!

Where Dreams Begin? With Lisa Kleypas, of course.

Would you listen to Where Dreams Begin again? Why?

I have listened to this audio book twice now. First in the car, commuting. Then at home, so I could savor each and every word.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The two protagonists are clearly and completely established. Never does Ms. Kleypas deliver an odd note in her story.

Have you listened to any of Rosalyn Landor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Rosalyn Landor is one of my favorite narrators. The life with which she imbues her characters enhance this already great story.

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

Clash of the classes

Any additional comments?

Always eagerly await a Lisa Kleypas novel. Be it historical or modern, her romances never disappoint.
