    Quick review finally completed 10 31 13 FANTASTIC HUGE 5 Stars Dreaming of You is one of the most beautifully told love stories I ve read It s full of vibrant and flawed characters that will touch your heart like few other characters will There s nothing new I can say about this slightly heartbreaking yet wonderfully heartwarming story that hasn t already been said other than Derek Craven and Sara Feilding and their love story is why I read romance It doesn t get better than this

    Did my 5th re read of this book yesterday I used to love it really, I did.But things changed My views have changed, and I can t let the fact that Derek shagged that housewench as a sub for Sara go It felt unclean for me, and was so downright disrespectful to women in general No woman should be used for her body like that Enough.And this delineation between pure, naive Sara and the unclean OTHER women Yeah, that can go to hell I m sick of that shit.

    5 stars Historical Regency RomanceThis is such a beautiful, heartrending love story that I savored like the finest Vosges chocolate And it s no wonder why this is such a sentimental, LK fan favoriteDerek Craven dreamy sigh .Author Sara Fielding wants to observe the workings of London s underground gaming halls for her latest novel, including the most famous gambling club of all, Craven s, and the notorious man who runs it Derek Craven, the sexy, cynical, hardened cockney son of a prostitute, grew up on the rough streets of London and learned to make his way in the dangerous rookeries by any means necessary, eventually accumulating vast wealth and power by running a popular, thriving gaming club Derek has erected strong defenses and adopted a detached, cool, blas fa ade to hide his emotions, protect his heart, and conceal his longing for the things in life he doesn t think he deserves and can never have honor, respect, trust, friendship, love, and family Of course, he never counted on an innocent, brave, inquisitive, genuine, mousy, and tenderhearted spinster like Sara Fielding shaking up his life and tearing down his walls of self protection.Derek Craven is such an endearing, diamond in the rough hero because he s a tortured soul and deeply flawed, yet he has a huge, albeit tarnished, heart of gold and such vast potential for love and when he falls for Sara, he falls hard and forever The way he cherishes and protects Sara like the world s greatest treasure is incredibly sweet and romantic Dreaming of You is a poignant, passionate story about the invincible power of love that tugs the heartstrings and that stays with you a long time after it s over Verrry big 5 stars

    ALERT ALERT Cheating hero Hero was not celibate during the separation I will avoid this book since I had a BAD experience with the last book I read by Kleypas Forever My LoveForever My Love Oh, really I don t know if people can understand this but, I CONSIDER that a hero is a cheater when AFTER he MEETS the heroine and HAS SEX with her, and maybe he started to feel something for her, he dumps her and sleeps with other woman women This separation was not for YEARS I like my heros being celibate during the separation, PERIOD

    This book is a beautiful love story Derek Craven is a self made man who is not interested in love, and certainly not with a sheltered provincial spinster like Sara But when he falls for her, he falls hard The beauty of this story is how deeply Derek comes to love Sara Some of the things he says to her, and the way he shows his love move d me intensely when I read it, and still do, though it has been years since I read this book And Sara is worthy of his love She might be rather plain and certainly unfashionable, but she has a great mind and a beautiful heart Derek is not a perfect guy He s not smooth or urbane He doesn t speak well because he grew up in the stews of London, but he s one of my all time favorite heroes, and certainly my favorite Lisa Kleypas hero He earned this because of the fact that this man was so utterly affected by love for Sara, and how he cherishes her And also due to the fact that he pulled himself up from the gutter and made something of himself I love those kinds of heroes heroines This book is in my top 10 of romances easily.Rachel Weisz as Sara Fielding image error

    I read this book long ago when it first came out It was one of my fav as the tortured hero goes he was the best However, I must say looking back on it now I can see that it was an ok read but it also had some questionable moments like when he first sees her and does not help her out but she saves his life He is a street rat and does not know any other way to be but basic The fact that he does not have sex with her when she throws herself at him says how hard he was trying to do right by her He really does think he can never have her as she is too good and pure and he is who he is So he sends her away and eventually sleeps with another woman who looks like her and calling the heroines name the whole time This poor woman goes to visit the heroine to ask her to come back and tells her all about what he had done and how he is behaving I loved his struggle with his feelings and her emotional and sexual awakening.This was a great story and the characters came alive off the pages for me Very enjoyable The masked ball was one of my favorite when he discovers that she is the girl under the mask that he is trying to seduce That was hot This book is not for everyone and I am glad the author glosses over some of the finer details in history so I could enjoy this book.

    I am re reading all my 5 star rated romance novels There are 60 on my shelf This is book 22 Tropes Opposites Attract, Unrequited Love, Wallflower, Love Triangle This is how my 22nd re read held up I cannot believe how I have chosen to ignore a MAJOR big problem in this book the first time I read it CHEATING Not once But twice The second time was sort of out of his control, but the first time was NOT, so The thing is, this book is pretty awesome Was pretty awesome whatever.At least up until the point where LK makes Derek F King Craven use one of his house wenches to seek comfort while missing the heroine And the second time when he doesn t really wake until it s or less too late when his ex mistress has sneaked into bed with him I DO NOT WANT TO READ THIS KIND OF S T IN ROMANCE NOVELS I had forgotten why I sometimes read LK s books with some trepidation, because she pulls stunts like this While there is certainly to this book than the cheating, personally it has ruined it for me Which really pisses me off, because the rest of the book is pretty great Sort of.Downgraded to 1.5 stars Mr Craven doesn t know how to love He recognizes it only as weakness and folly That s part of his attraction for women, I believe They each hope to be the one who will finally capture his heart But it s not possible He ll never allow it, no indeed Quick plot Prim and well bred Sara Fielding might be an artist with the pen fictionalizing the underbelly of London, but what she really lacks is real insight By pure chance she saves the life of the notorious owner of London s most exclusive gambling house, Derek Craven Indebted, Derek has no choice but to allow the tenacious little author inside the walls of his questionable establishment After my cheating rant, let s focus on the good stuff, because there is plenty Derek had never dreamed that his territory would be so gently and thoroughly invaded or that his employees would be such willing traitors Sara Fielding s mysterious charm had captivated everyone in his club In my opinion, she said, you use your poor beginnings as a convenient excuse to to discard all the ethics the rest of us must live by Ethics, he sneered I couldn t name one man, rich or poor, who wouldn t discard them for the right price I wouldn t, she said steadily What does she think of you Appalled by your lurid past, as I would imagine She s in raptures over it I suppose you ve done everything possible to be offensive She likes it She calls me source material I d keep you with me every bloody minute of the day no, I d have you fitted with a ball and chain because I know that otherwise you d be running off to do research in the nearest dark alley with every cutthroat and pimp you can find She folded her arms and regarded him with tight lipped disapproval There s no need to shout at me, Mr Craven I m not Derek s voice faded into silence He had been shouting, something he never did Amazed, he rubbed his jaw and stared at her, while she returned his gaze like an inquiring little owl He wasn t behaving like himself he wasn t thinking like himself He felt as if he should brace himself for some cataclysmic event The air was charged with white hot currents His nerve ends seemed abraded Something was going to happen something and all he could do, it seemed, was wait You re offended that I m here, Sara said in a small voice I d rather stand in a bucket of coals than spend one night under the same roof with you You dislike me that much Derek s lungs began to work hard as he stared into her small, lovely face The violent joy of being near her caused his blood to sizzle His fingers flexed repeatedly into the softness of her shoulders, as if relishing the texture of her flesh No, I don t dislike you, he said, nearly inaudible With a disbelieving look on her face, Sara pulled out the tiny pair of spectacles she thought she had lost at the club Why she whispered, amazed that he was carrying them in his breast pocket.He met her gaze defiantly, his jaw set A small muscle twitched in his cheek.Then she understood Are you having problems with your sight, Mr Craven she asked softly Or is it your heart They settled on a step and he hunched over her tightly, his arms fast around her I love you, he told her, wiping impatiently at the tears that kept trickling down his face I couldn t say it before I couldn t He clenched his trembling jaw, trying to control the hot flow of tears It only made them worse Giving up, he buried his face in her hair Bloody hell, he muttered.Sara had never seen him so undone, had never imagined it possible Stroking his dark head, she whispered meaningless words, trying to give comfort I love you, he repeated hoarsely, burg against her I would have given my life to have one day with you, and tell you that There is another reason why I have downgraded this book, which is that Sara repeatedly mentions his hold is hurting her, or the book describes he is acting forcibly with women ex mistress You and me LK.

    Liked this one I always like a tortured hero and Derek Craven really is tortured He feels that because of his upbringing he is unworthy of love, especially the love of a sweet person Separately they had different strengths Together they were complete Loved catching up with Lily and Alex again I loved the first book.Derek fights his attraction to Sara She is not even his type a country maiden from a small village He is used to the flirtatious ladies of the ton He was so far from the gallant knights in her romantic fantasies He was tarnished, scarred, imperfect Derek s breath touched Sara s throat in unsteady urges Sometimes, he whispered, I m so close to you and I m still not close enough I want to share your breath every beat of your heart He cradled her head in both his hands, his mouth hot on her neck Sometimes, he murmured, I want to punish you a little Why For making me want you until I ache with it For the way I wake at night just to watch you sleeping His face was intense and passionate above her, his green eyes sharp in their brightness I want you each time I m with you It s a fever that never leaves me I can t be alone without wondering where you are, when I can have you again His lips possessed hers in a kiss that was both savage and tender, and she opened to him eagerly.

    6 StarsHOLY HISTORICAL HOTNESS Derek Craven s got to be thee finest historical male that was ever written Need any reason to read this Didn t think so nuff said.Derek grew up in the gutters He is now the richest man in London as the owner of Craven s, a renowned gaming hell His upbringing has left him extremely guarded and cynical Sara Fielding is a young writer from the country who visits the casino for research on her latest book, but what she finds is one irresistible man who doesn t want to give her the time of day.This is one of those books that once you read, you never forget The lust, the love, the way everything unfolds is perfect Beautifully strong hero and heroine You honestly can t lose with this book It is book 2 of the Gambler series, but can be read as a standalone book This, along with Kleypas Again the Magic, are my all time favorite books period I have re read this many times and it s still a solid, satisfying read each time Originally read in 2011 and many times since then Updated review
