This week, I’m featuring Judith McNaught.
A Kingdom of Dreams, published in July 2003
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’ll probably just cover all Judith McNaught historical romance novels here. Lol. This is the first we see of the Westmoreland Dukes and its setting is more of medieval than regency where Clayton’s and Stephen’s stories take place if I remember correctly.
What I take from this book the most is the intensity of all emotions, the rawness of feelings and realities and just the sizzling and hot romance between Royce and Jennifer. It’s one of the first Judith McNaught novels I’ve read and up to this day, I still consider this one a keeper.
Have you read this book? What are your thoughts about it? I’d love to hear from you guys.
