  1. Judith McNaught has done it again This book has two major pet peeves of mine 1 at the beginning, the hero beats the heroine not only once, but twice 2 somewhere down the road, the hero and the heroine are torn apart by a Big Misunderstanding , but who cares I don t know why, I don t know how, but I ended up loving this book Royce turned out to be a wonderful hero After a less than thrilling introduction, he slowly but steadily started to grow on me, up to the point where I understood and forgave [...]

  3. Huge 5 starsKingdom of Dreams is one of the best books I ve read The story is full of vibrant and richly developed characters, a plot that s riveting, emotional, provocative, and a prose that s exceptionally well written To top it off, this book has one of the best ending I ve read It was amazing, extremely poignant, and very powerful I m still an emotional mess hours later Judith McNaught is an exceptional storyteller and I m embarrassed it s taken me so long to read one of her books.

  6. A Kingdom of Dreams by Judith McNaught 3 More Galavant Than The Tudors Stars.Hells yeah, I want to go there I don t really have a choice Before cracking open, A Kingdom of Dreams, I read Teresa Denys masterpiece, The Silver Devil, and in a Medieval romance face off McNaught s version loses hands down To be fair, the two authors have very different writing styles The Silver Devil, is dark, gritty, and authentic to the time period while, A Kingdom of Dreams, is modish, amusing, and fantastical In [...]

  7. I liked it I just didn t love it Sometimes I think that when I see all of my friends have given a book 5 stars, I go in with my expectations way too high Or, it could be that I just like to be a jerk.The problem I had with this is book is that I didn t like the heroine, Jennifer It started out well I liked that she was figuring out ways to escape her kidnappers I liked how hard she fought But, after a while, she got real old real fast.I get that she didn t like her kidnapper, Royce I mean who wo [...]

  8. You are mad she snapped, her chest heaving And you are a devil And you, my dear, Royce imperturbably replied, are a bitch With that, he turned to the horrified friar and unhesitatingly announced, The lady and I wish to be wed This is an oldy but a goody I love these enemies to lovers stories, and JM seems to dish them out on silver platters She always has the perfect amount of conflict to keep me invested Not to mention, her heroes make me drool I ll admit that this isn t my favorite by JM, but [...]

  11. 2.5 I m really getting tired of this stars This really should have been titled Taming of the Shrew Part II Too harsh How about this Well this sucks Another McNaught favorite among many that I did not love I feel like I should put out a disclaimer or apologize to my GR friends for clogging up your feeds with my negative reviews low ratings as of late I promise you I m NOT doing it on purpose I m not one of those reviewers I ve been in a serious book funk that seems to have no end Nothing is worki [...]

  12. Re read AGAIN One of my favorite go to comfort inspiring reads How is it possible that it keeps getting better One of the best fight to the finish love stories It doesn t come easy and it comes at a cost, but it s so worth it 5 Stars I am a blubbering mess The last six paragraphs in the book, before the epilogue, where Royce contemplates the recent events in his life, just undid me This is an intense, well written, passionate romance A wonderful journey, as Royce and Jenny discover that you can [...]

  13. AMAZING, fabulous, OUTSTANDING read, that deserves a happy dance Some spoilers ahead To say I was captivated from beginning to end, is a serious understatement I physically couldn t stop myself from devouring every word written Not to add any updates or even add this book to my CR list My eyes were drying out seriously, I used eyes drops from not blinking enough and lack of sleep It wasn t a pretty sight This historical romance sure didn t feel historical to me It was so easy to read I wasn t bo [...]

  14. DNF 11 d, bad Alex You should really stop trying to read Outlander like books They are not for you.You see, I really enjoy a historical romance every now and then, so I m fully aware that this kind of books tend to be misogynistic time period and all that I can overlook it What I deeply dislike is when the physical punishment of the woman is involved I m beginning to understand that this is a huge pet peeve for me, so I m going to avoid it from now on.

  15. Thanks Ash for the recommendation or I wouldn t have read it otherwise and that would be a shame Also a pat on the back for me since I found this gem at Half priced books.This story can best be summarized with two words Total escapism There s a reason historical romance reigns ahead on my favorite genre list and A Kingdom of Dreams is the perfect example I loved the family clan dynamics, court politics, and the depth the author portrayed these complex characters This story was exactly what I nee [...]

  16. This review was originally posted on Addicted To RomanceThe Kingdom of Dreams is the first book of the Westland Saga I read this book many years ago, and I had this on my list to re read, and since my library didn t have it any longer, I decided I would need to buy it and well worth it in the end I loved everything about this book At first it started out a bit slow, and I was a bit worried that I wouldn t love it as much as I did when I read it the first time But wow, suddenly I was drawn in so [...]

  17. This review was posted at My Secret RomanceThis is romance at its best I ve come to the conclusion that all the books I said I loved in the past, I didn t I was wrong I m realizing that I lusted after them, not truly loved This book is love The way I wrote my review for Whitney, My Love, is going to be the same way I write my review for this book There isn t anything I can say that hasn t already been said about this book It is a phenomenal book and everyone should read it regardless if you like [...]

  18. A Kingdom of Dreams is regarded as one of the best love stories by numerous romance novels fans Being a non romance reader my interest waned by the age of about 15 when I d read all possible feisty wench dangerous rogue scenarios , I can t be a fair judge of the book, but here is my review nevertheless This book had some decent, at times funny dialog between 2 main characters, the bedroom scenes were fairly steamy without being graphic, but other than that, it was a typical historical romance no [...]

  19. This is a fantastic medieval romance I stayed up until 3 in the morning, knowing that I wouldn t finish, because I literally couldn t put this book down It took the best attributes from a strong willed female heroine and the very best attributes from an alpha male hero and put them into THIS BOOK I don t even really know what to say So often, there is only a surface level reality to books set hundreds of years ago But I swear I was hearing thundering hoof beats while I read this Gush, gush, gush [...]

  20. Royce understood then why she had come she had come to finish the task her relatives had begun to do to him what he had done to her brother Unmoving, he watched her, noting that tears were pouring down her beautiful face as she slowly bent down But instead of reaching for his lance or her dagger, she took his hand between both of hers and pressed her lips to it Through his daze of pain and confusion, Royce finally understood that she was kneeling to him, and a groan tore from his chest Darling, [...]

  21. Review from July 31, 2009 A Kingdom of Dreams, by Judith McNaught, is probably my favorite love story of all times Romance is not my preferred genre, but this book definitely has all the magical elements to make you believe in fairy tale love and a knight in shining armor I love the two main characters of this novel, and when they meet, you become captivated by their fierce battle of wills and ultimately their undying love for each other This story is filled with a perfect blend of romance, adve [...]

  22. My heart is bursting Love is not a strong enough word to describe how I feel about this book 5 HUGE, DREAMY STARS Many people have read this book and I seem to be in the minority of those who haven t until now And because of this reason I won t draw out my review But OH MY GOD I love HR but this is in a class of it s own Breathtaking and incredibly thick with layers and plot twists, this is the best HR I ve read to date It had everything I could hope for Romance, intrigue, angst, adventure, dece [...]

  23. 3.5 to 4 stars It took me a little while to finish this reread of a book that was a fav for me when I first started out reading HRs, years ago But times have changed, and HRs today have a different feel It was interesting to find this one still stands up pretty well I read this for the 2018 Romance Across The Ages challenge for the Historical Romance Book Club group on GR January theme Scottish It was also a rare for me medieval read, being set in the late 1400s.Royce, Earl of Clay, is an Englis [...]

  24. The groom always smiles proudly because he s convinced he s accomplished something quite wonderful The bride smiles because she s been able to convince him of it Characters are wonderfully fleshed and out and complex for this genre type Jennifer is bold and daring, loyal and open hearted She s not so steel spined that she s unrealistic, and I enjoyed being in her head for this storyline after I got over her annoying loyalty to a clan that didn t necessarily deserve it The hero Royce was likable [...]

  25. Why is it, that every time you surrender willingly, like this, you make me feel like a king who has conquered Yet when I conquer you against your will, you make me feel like a defeated beggar I am on a fantastic run of fucking brilliant historical romances right now What makes this one even special is the unique to me time period Other than Arthurian set stories, I have never read something from the Medieval era and I so enjoyed the change in pace But honestly what didn t I love about this read [...]

  27. I am highly disappointed in the build up, only for it to end that way I had expected way for that ending than the one we got The book was alright, enjoyable even, for like 30 % of the book, but then I started to lose respect for Jennifer Merrick 17 I ended up with feeling a somewhat hatred towards her, which is not a good thing She also didn t gain back my trust, which perhaps is why I m very disappointed with how thing happened The groom always smiles proudly because he s convinced he s accomp [...]

  28. 10 After reading it for maybe the hundredth time, I declare A kingdom of dreams to be the best historical of all time The spellbinding quality of Mcnaught s narrations, how she magically weaves a story characters that transport you to another time and place is unique just to her I always wished for movies to be made out of her HRs well since that has not yet been done,i ll try a little bit something here with my imagination WTH even if it gets a bit cheesy ROYCE WESTMORELAND sigh My hero His Lad [...]

  29. 4.5 StarsSuch a beautiful story I loved it This is historical romance at its finest The characters were solidly developed and the writing was just superb It was packed with love, suspense, adventure and lessons to be learned I fell in love with these characters and I m sad to see them go.
