Dreaming of You (Gamblers) by Lisa Kleypas <— Yep! I am! This is the one!! And it’s been awhile now that I keep hearing about this mysterious and brooding “Derek Craven” that makes so many here, swoon like mad.
I haven’t read many of ’em in my reading lifetime but each and every one of that I HAVE read, I’ve loved like crazy. From Karen Marie Moning’s sexy highlanders (like Beyond the Highland Mist – and yes I KNOW Adam Black’s book I need to read ASAP in this series) to Mary Wine’s SCORCHING-HOT (In the Warrior’s Bed <— whoooooooooo!!!*) kidnappy-highlanders (hey! It’s what they did back then, I guess. Family revenge and all that), to Outlander and The Bronze Horseman (both ruled my world).
It’s fun to shake up my reading a little, and I thought I’d stray from contemporary and NA for a day or two and try a whole new world. And my choice was easy when some of our fellow readers chatted about one particular historical that they LOVED like crazy…
bev: Dreaming of You is a common favorite of her fans because of Derek Craven. An amazing hero… So if I beg pretty please wouldyou consider reading a Kleypas historical?
Michelle: Bev, I’ve had a crazy productive reading week and even finished two Kleypas books yourecommended, Dreaming of You and Because Your Mine. They were both fantastic and I’m instantly in lust with her books! The plots and characters are so rich!
I AM IN!!! Okay right now I’m at the part where she’s going to that masked ball thingie (for “research”) and she’s not going to be a “mouse” tonight. *grins* I can’t wait to see where it takes me.
