A Kingdom of Dreams

Now Judith McNaught has written her most tender, most tempestuous romance yet...the story of Jennifer Merrick, a deisty Scottish beauty, and the fierce English wariour she defies--and desires.

Abducted from her convent school, headstrong Scottish beauty Jennifer Merrick does not easily surrender to Royce Westmoreland, Duke of Claymore. Known as "The Wolf," his very name strikes terror in the hearts of his enemies. But proud Jennifer will have nothing to do with the fierce English warrior who holds her captive, this handsome rogue who taunts her with his blazing arrogance. Boldly she challenges his will...until the night he takes her in his powerful embrace, awakening in her an irresistible hunger. And suddenly Jennifer finds herself ensnared in a bewildering web...a seductive, dangerous trap of pride, passion, loyalty, and overwhelming love.

I enjoyed the heck out of this book! It was more serious than what I've been reading lately, and that being said, it was perfect for a change of pace. Her characters were well developed. The story was detailed without getting too bogged down. The pace moved well. I'll try more books by Judith McNaught. I enjoyed this abundantly. I'd rate this a 5!
