From the Back Cover
She was a Scottish heiress, a countess in her own right and reputation had it that she was a cold, sour, ugly spinster. They were both about to be astounded.
When she was abducted by the Wolf's men, he found she was bewitching, courageous and totally unpredictable. She tricked him, made him the laughing stock of the English and Scottish courts, and drove him to fury with her defiance.
One of the most enduring truths about my reading preferences is my love for Judith McNaught's books. She is my all-time favorite historical romance author, though Lisa Kleypas is a close second. (Suzanne Brockmann would round out the trio of the best of the best for me).
"Kingdom of Dreams" was released in hardcover back in 1989, so I would have read it in paperback sometime after that. I was around 18 or 19 then, and had been reading romances for about 6 years. I remember how McNaught had this amazing way of drawing me into the story, of how I could get so mad at a character in one instance, then the next minute melt into a puddle. I can't say it's my favorite McNaught book, but it is definitely on my top 20. For the uninitiated, it's definitely "old school" ala Woodiwiss, so it's not for every reader. But it is and will remain on my keeper shelf from now until the end of my time.
Hope you can join in on the discussion
What's your favorite "old school romance?
And now for a treat....
