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!
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 p [...]
5 I-so-marrying-Derek-in-my-next-life stars ! ♥ This book was a BLOODY AMAZING READ !! I can't believe I just struck gold in a mine full of books,so unintentionally.She felt him tremble with the force of his need. He spoke just beneath her ear, his voice thick with tormented pleasure. "You have to leave, Sara because I want to hold you like this until your skin melts into mine. I want you in my bed, the smell of you on my sheets, your hair spread across my pillow. I want to take your innocenc [...]
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.
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 c [...]
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. [...]
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 cel [...]
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 ga [...]
MARAVILLOSA. ❤️Moví cielo y tierra para encontrar los libros de esta serie principalmente para conocer al famoso «Derek Craven», por lo cual mis expectativas estaban por las nubes. Bueno, ahora sí puedo decir que Dereck es uno de los personajes más complejos y mejores logrados de esta autora. Todo lo bueno (y lo malo) que se diga de él lo tiene absolutamente merecido. Peeeeeeero, debo confesar que el personaje de Sara me FASCINÓ. Y no solo por cómo logra «reformar» a nuestro descar [...]
Me ha enganchado tanto que llevaba el libro en el bolso a todas partes. Sara es genial, pero Derek Derek es uno de esos protagonistas masculinos que se quedan en el recuerdo; complejo, oscuro y tentador. Aunque no es una novela corta, cuando termina casi te deja con ganas de seguir conociéndolo más, porque tiene innumerables capas y una gran historia detrás. Muy recomendable.
6++++ StarsHOLY HISTORICAL HOTNESS. Derek Craven's got to be thee finest piece of historical a** that was ever written!! Need any more 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 *irresisti [...]
5+++ STARS!!!MARRY ME, MR. CRAVEN!!!I don’t think it’s possible for me to talk about this book without excessive gushing! I’ve heard great things about Derek Craven, about how he’s Kleypas’ favourite hero that she’s ever written and now I understand why! Derek is the most haunted, the most broken out of all the heroes she has written. And I thought Kev from the Hathaways was intense! Derek easily stole my heart inThen Came You and he broke it inDreaming of You!And then there’s Sara [...]
I read this book at least once a year, and have been doing so for the past 5 years. There really are not enough words for this love story. Each time I read it, I think that I've romanticized it in my mind, and each time I am left with the same amazed, giddy, and warm-fuzzies that I experienced that last time I read it. If you are a romance fanis is an absolute MUST READ. DEREK CRAVEN is a name that you'll take with you to the grave! This man is so positively unforgettable that I struggle to capt [...]
Miss Sara Fielding, a celebrated but reclusive author, is researching her new book about gambling in the seedier parts of London a long way from her sedate live in the country. When she saves a man from being attacked she is astounded to realize that it is none other than the owner of the renowned gaming hall Mr Derek Craven. In repayment for saving his life he lets the spinsterish but adventurous Miss Fielding into his club for her research; however, the little “mouse” seems to be getting u [...]
A tortured soul meets a specktacled author.This was a really great one by Lisa Kleypas.Derek was a street-rat on the English streets. He did all kinds of things to survive - most of them lying, cheating, stealing. He worked his way to the top by sleeping with rich, blue-blooded women who funded his club and he became one of the richest men in England. He carries around his past like a hard weight and he doesn't feel he deserves much. And when Sara, the spinster author, saves him one night, he kn [...]
Me ha gustado mucho. Pero menos que el primero, por el que siento debilidadImposible leerlos por separado para ver la evolución del personaje de Dereck CravenMe han gustado los dos, pero el que más (contracorriente) SAra. Por esa bondad, esa valentía y ese romper moldes de mujer independiente que es un pequeño homenaje a las escritoras de a épocaEs una novela lleva de simbolismos, una historia muy bonita con unos personajes que atrapan,Lectura imprescindible, aunque yo me quedo con Lily y A [...]
This was such a beautiful story that had me reading it in about one sitting!You met Derek Craven in The Came You as a gambling club owner with a dark past who had to claw his way up to the top and do everything in his power to stay there. When he’s suddenly attacked he’s saved by a well-known author Sara Fielding. After finding out who Derek is, Sara asks in the name of research for her next book to view his gambling club but, when sparks fly between them Derek and Sara they both face obstac [...]
Looking at my friend's ratings it is clear that I am once again the black sheep.The thing is, despite loving the Wallflower and the Hathaway series to bits, I tend to have some problems with Lisa Kleypas older books _apparently this was written back in 2003 o_O _, they feel very soap operish to me, and I'm sick and tired of idiotic heroines always placing themselves in dangerous situations, so that the hero can save them!That's what happened here: Sarah is supposed to be an intelligent woman but [...]
WARNING/Spoilers/SWEARING********************************Romance or not Cheating/Infidelity should never be taken so lightly its never ok to sleep with someone whose already married and his/her deniability of it by using excuses from their past habits!This did not seem to bother other readers, but it did bothered me and even the characters in the book seem accepting for not addressing Derek's pervasive and distasteful lifestyle of sexual indulgences throughout the entire book and I do not wish t [...]
Okay, I'd like to start off this review by saying that if Lily were alive in this day and age, this would be her fave T-shirt:She invades this book with her sexist bitchiness, always blabbing on about how men are "useless creatures" and "easy to manage" etc It's a wonder she actually decided to marry a man, what with the way she loathes them. Moving on from Lily.So, Derek. He is my man. I love his guts. Seriously. Lily claimed he was a heartless, uncaring man, when, obviously, he was not. Lily's [...]
I'm a suckerrrr for regency romance books. It's always just the right amount of cheesy.-----------Not a perfect book, but it was mesmerizing at times. Lisa Kleypas’ characters always fill me with such strong emotions, whether they are positive or negative. This book is not one of my favorites out of all of her books, but there is definitely something charming and intriguing about Derek Craven and his world of gambling, drinking, and other vices. He is an interesting figure for sure. I also lov [...]
"You have to leave, Sara because I want to hold you like this until your skin melts into mine. I want you in my bed, the smell of you on my sheets, your hair spread across my pillow. I want to take your innocence. God! I want to ruin you for anyone else." Lisa Kleypas is my favorite HR author. I just love her books. And Dreaming of You was great. It reminded me of Devil in Winter, probably because of the whole gambling house, and Derek thinking he wasn’t good enough for Sara. Derek reminded m [...]
Segunda entrega de la serie “Jugadores” en que precisamente el protagonista es uno de los personajes secundarios que destacó en el primer libro, y que siempre fue caracterizado por una personalidad extremadamente compleja. Por lo mismo, la gracia de esta historia está en que por fin conoce a la persona capaz de quebrar todos los muros que había construido para protegerse. Ese proceso está tan bien desarrollado por la autora que es imposible parar de leer. Lisa Kleypas definitivamente sie [...]
This is going to be another review where I apologize to every GR friend who loves this book. I'm sorry guys, I just didn't. I tried - I really did!I didn't connect with either Derek or Sara, I didn't care for the story, and found myself skipping the love scenes. SKIPPING THE LOVE SCENES, folks. (That doesn't happen very often, I'm a bit of a dirty girl.)The whole book was meh for me, and frankly some parts made me uncomfortable. I dunno what it was, but it was like my brain shied away as soon as [...]
WOW! I loved Dreaming of You by Lisa Kleypas! I would even go so far as to say it rivals my affections for Devil in Winter,(my all time fav LK book) - no easy feat for sure!There are many trials and ups and downs Derek and Sara face throught the book; it is non-stop action from the very beginning. They have got the sweetest relationship. The chemistry between them was electrifying and I couldn't get enough of them! I was actually sad for the book to end! Very good romantic read.And once again I [...]
Bueno, por fin he tenido el placer de conocer a Derek Craven ^^Con todo lo que había oído hablar de él, creo que llevaba hecha otra idea y aunque me ha gustado mucho, siento que Sara le ha robado el protagonismo, he visto el libro muy centrado en ella, y yo quería (ansiaba) más Mr. Craven.Por lo demás, qué decir que no se haya dicho ya, hay muchas reseñas maravillosas en GR, simplemente que os recomiendo su lectura, yo al menos lo he disfrutado.Por cierto Elsa, sí, la segunda parte del [...]
I have reread this book many times since my youth but the most recent reread made me take this book down a peg. I had loved Derek Craven as a character and he alone made the book great for me. I have always thought that his fascination for Sara Fielding came out of nowhere. But Derek was such a compelling character. And what girl doesn't like the idea of a bad boy changing for love? The story itself is the typical bad boy gets redemption through his relationship with the good girl. I reread this [...]
My fave Lisa Kleypas of all time!Derek Craven forever!RATED ALL THE DAMN STARS IN THE SKY! YOU HAVE ANY? I'M TAKING THOSE FOR THIS BOOK!
Maravilloso, nunca me cansaré de leerlo, NUNCAAAAAAA
*Sigh.* I guess I am one of the last of my GR friends to read this story. Just about everyone rated it, though the number of stars are across the board. If I tackled this historical romance when it was first published in 1994, I would have given it five stars. I wasn’t as fussy back then. But now? From the first chapter of Dreaming of You, it was necessary to sacrifice realism and logic for the sake of enjoyment. Chapter One: Miss Sara Fielding was a writer gathering research for her third boo [...]
