Dreaming Of You Review
Title: Dreaming of You (The Gamblers of Craven’s, #2)
Author: Lisa Kleypas
Publication Date: January 1, 1994
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 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.
So, I finally read THE Lisa Kleypas book. This is the book everyone says is their favorite of hers. This is the book that everyone asked if I had ever read before. This book has been mentioned to me at least 100 times. So, I finally read it… annnnndddd it was just as fantastic as everyone said it was.
I was little nervous about actually reading it because I was afraid it wouldn’t live up to its reputation. But I was wrong! It was incredible. I believe Derek Craven is the book boyfriend of allll book boyfriends. Swoon!
Does this book really warrant a review? It seems to be a classic- it’s like writing a review for Harry Potter… Does the world really need another one? But I will say this is one of the best books I’ve ever read! If you’ve been putting this off because you were like me and didn’t want to be let down- don’t worry! You won’t be! It is- wow!
