Dreaming of You

Dreaming of You
Gamblers bk 2

Lisa Kleypas


She stood at danger’s threshold – then love beckoned her in.

In the shelter of her country cottage, Sara Fielding puts pen to paper to create dreams. But curiosity has enticed the prim, well-bred gentlewoman out of her safe haven – and into Derek Craven’s dangerous world.

A handsome, tough and tenacious Cockney, he rose from poverty to become lord of London’s most exclusive gambling house – a struggle that has left Derek Craven fabulously wealthy, but hardened and suspicious. And now duty demands that he allow Sara Fielding into his world – with her impeccable manners and her infuriating innocence. But here, in a perilous shadow-realm of ever-shifting fortunes, even a proper “mouse” can be transformed into a breathtaking enchantress – and a world-weary gambler can be shaken to his cynical core by the power of passion… and the promise of love.

REVIEW: Okay here it comes my review of this book. I know that some are anxiously waiting to see what I think of Derek (Rowena and Holly) and I have to say that I loved him. Absolutely loved him.

I loved how he had no clue what was happening to him. Not ever knowing love he had no clue what was happening to him. All he knew was the she disturbed him on a very basic and fundamental level. One of my favorite parts is after he saves Sara, to her reputation he tells her to pick a man because there is no man that doesn’t owe him, and he will get him for you.

But I loved this paragraph when they get married…
pg 305

But Sara saw Derek for exactly what he was, no more and no less, and she was aware that he might never change. It was enough that he loved her. In spite of his faults, he would take care of her and defend her to the last breath of life. Separately they had different strengths. Together they were complete.

This book I think is going to be my favorite book of her’s. So I am now a fan of her’s. I probably won’t buy the books because my sil buys them, so I don’t need to, but I will definitely read them all.

I give this book a 5 out of 5.

    I don't read historicals (much). So not surprisingly, maybe, I have not read any of Lisa Kleypas's work. After reading your review, maybe I should have a look…
