5.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding Regency romance 30 Sep 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
"Dreaming of You" is one of the best historical romances I've read. The storyline is excellent and very original set in Regency London. Sara Fielding an innocent country girl arrives in London to thoroughly research her next novel. She is a succesful novelist writing about the hard life of the low classes of society, prostitutes and gamblers. One night she rescues a handsome men from the hands of two ruffians. He is bleeding but he is still able to shout orders at her in his strong Cockney accent. Sara is terrified and excited at the same time when she finds out that the victim is Derek Craven the owner of London's most exclusive gambling club.She wants to tour his club and take notes for her new novel. Derek is against it and he wants to send her packing immediately back to her little village in the country. He feels from the beginning that she is trouble and he wants to save her from everything especially from himself.He is a handsome ( even with a scar ) hard and very cynical young man who has more money than he can count and he knows everything about everybody. Women are throwing themselves at him hoping that they will be the one to make him fall in love. He's had a very hard and painful childhood, he survived in the rookeries of London and he succeeded in building a powerful empire. He thinks he has no heart and he is indifferent to every woman. His reaction to Sara terrifies him. He gets more and more attracted to her and he is scared because he can't control his desire and feelings for her. Sara feels the attraction too. She has always thought of herself as a practical country girl who will marry Perry in the village and live happily ever after.
But meeting Derek awakens her heart and her passion.They have many passionate and witty confrontations.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite Kleypas books 23 Mar 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I liked this book because of its hero, Derek. He was abandoned as an infant and raised by prostitues. A self-made man, he was able to rise from the dregs of society to become of the richest men in London. His past explained his cynical outlook on life and his belief that he was incapable and undeserving of Sara's love. Yet, he can't help but fall for the innocent, lovable Sara, who is charming like all of Kleypas' heroines.
I highly recommend "Dreaming of You," as well as other Lisa Kleypas books. She is a terrific author. All of her books have a great story, sexy heroes, and interesting heroines. Her books are very well-written, something that I can not say for all romance writers.
Looking forward to "Someone to Watch Over Me."

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT STORY 27 May 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was a brilliant book, with a fast start that dragged you into the story. I liked the fact that the characters weren't "posh nobility", it made Derek all the more dangerous and appealing, and the heroine wasn't some silly simpering girl. I won't recommend this book though if you need to be somewhere, as you will not want to put it down once you have started.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE SWEETEST! 29 Jan 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I swear this is the best book by Lisa Kleypas! Although the storyline is like other romance novels, but the way that Miss Kleypas wrote this book made it different. I especially like the fact that they don't fall straight into bed moments after seeing each other! There is less lust in the beginning and more concentrated towards the two characters resolving their feelings towards each other. However, don't worry, the sexual tension is more than enough to make up for the lack of sex scenes at the beginning. And I can certainly say that Miss Kleypas make up for this lack at the end!

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST READ! 29 Jun 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Dreaming of you is my all time favorite book, and with good reason. Lisa Klepays, besides being enviously beautiful is a terrific writer! In this book Sara Fielding is a country bred lass that comes to London do research for her new book, in the process she saves Derek Craven's life. Derek is the owner of an exclusive gentleman's club, although reluctant he lets Sara research in his club. In the process they fall in love, but Derek "knows" he's not good enugh for Sara and he believes he will never learn to love or be happy. There are many touching scenes as Sara teaches Derek to accept their love and know happiness. Ya'll just got to read this book!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The most interesting love story I've ever read!!! 28 July 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Firstly I read this book in Russian and was so fascinated with the story, characters, dialoques and especially love scenes that I found the original which captured me even more! Sara and Derek were described so ably that seemed to be quite real for me. I did suffered the Derek's resistance to admit that despite of his base descent and dismal past he deserves Sara's love and trust. And that sexual tense 'tween them... who else could describe it better! This book is worth to be read!
