Dreaming of You Lisa Kleypas read online review & book description:

When shy and secluded author Sara Fielding ventures from her country cottage to research a novel, she inadvertently witnesses a crime in progress—and manages to save the life of the most dangerous man in London.

Derek Craven is a powerful and near-legendary gambling club owner who was born a bastard and raised in the streets. His reputation is unsavory, his scruples nonexistent. But Sara senses that beneath Derek's cynical exterior, he is capable of a love more passionate than her deepest fantasies.

Aware that he is the last man that an innocent young woman should ever want, Derek is determined to protect Sara from himself, no matter what it takes. But in a world where secrets lurk behind every shadow, he is the only man who can keep her safe. And as Derek and Sara surrender to an attraction too powerful to deny, a peril surfaces from his dark past to threaten their happiness . . . and perhaps even their lives.

Together they will discover if love is enough to make dreams come true.

    This author paints a beautiful story to play across your mind. Tremendous range of emotions for both the scoundrel and the country maiden. Love love love this novel!

    I’ve owned this book since it came out in paperback, and own it in audiobook and eBook. I read it every couple of years, because nothing fills my heart quite as much as this gorgeous tale of a feisty author from the countryside, eager to understand the slightly seedier side of London. Sarah Fielding's compassionate heart contrasted with Derek Craven’s drive to pick himself up out of the (literal) gutter from whence he was born…well, it’s a match made in heaven. Even if he doesn’t believe he deserves her, and she doesn’t think she’s grand enough. Treat yourself: this one will live on your keeper shelf and in your heart. Heck, I’ll probably read it again after writing this review.

    I loved all Lisa’s wallflower series, but this one knocked it out of the ballpark! I read it straight through, which is a first for me. It’s unpredictable and gets intense toward the end. I love how she shows instead of telling you the little things that make a marriage work, and yes, in the bedroom too! And , yes, it may be a bit fantastical , but I always enjoy reading how the husband is totally head over heels in love with his bride , no matter what happens! I loved this book best of all!

    For a man of few words the way Derek expresses himself is so romantic. Sara is quirky and fun. I read this book over and over and it never gets old. I hope you will enjoy it too.
  • Beautiful!

    First book I’ve read from this author and I have to say she writes beautifully! Some authors just have a way with words that give you such emotion and such a clear picture and Lisa is definitely one of them. I’m eager to read more from her!

    This is the absolute best historical romance / erotic fiction book that I have EVER read. And I’ve been a big fan of the genre for years. ABSOLUTELY fantastic.

    One of the worst books I've read in a long time. Unreadable.

    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. 😀
