Retro Review: A Kingdom of Dreams by Judith McNaught. – Book Binge
After I tried them, I just didn’t want them any more. One of the best fight-to-the-finish love stories! Boldly she challenges his will.
And how can you forgive Royce but not Jenny? But she also suffered a good juditg of insecurity when it came to love. This book is perfect for all you romantics lovers. December 2, Publication Date: In front of seven thousand onlookers, Jennifer Merrick Westmoreland, countess of Rockbourn, knelt before her husband in a public act of humble obedience, her face pressed to his hand, her shoulders wrenched with violent sobs.
What follows is a nightmare for both Royce and Jenny, and when they are finally brought together in marriage, each is bitterly hurt and humiliated. The whole “falling in love with my captured enemy” was right down my alley of fun. Not at this wedding. Nothing is working for me.
This page was last edited on 26 Octoberat I was going through every emotion possible from joy and elation to sadness and defeat. And the stunt her father and Malcolm pull at the tournament just made me mcnauyht they would all get trampled. The guests and the servants and the hounds in the hall were tense.
A wonderful journey, as Royce and Jenny discover that you can’t always believe what you hear Brenna and Stefan were great to read about, as well as several of Royce’s knights.
Not a fun time to be a teenager… or a female.

Shall I go on? Without Jenny, she’d not have had a single adventure — nor ever gotten a scolding. Come on, that scene in the courtyard????
There are villains on kingddom sides and a lot of animonsity which I found accurate. And this is just mere days after discovering she loves her husband and claiming to trust him. And, she was totally attracted to Royce, flirted with him, and then she slept with him. The momentum and pacing is complete crap IMO. Most historical romances stand above the rest if they have humor, which this one introduced through fun dialogue and banter between the mains and others.
It was amazing, extremely poignant, and very powerful. Royce the Black Wolf Westmoreland, the Duke of Claymore find his destiny when his brother Stefan, kidnaps Jenny and her sister from her convent school mcnajght a nun’s outfit jdith all things. How can you not love that? Brenna hesitated and then volunteered with only a tiny tremor in her voice, “I’ll stay with you. It was so far removed from the modern world, it made the story so much more captivating and dream-like.
Her eyes clung to her father, then drifted briefly over her clansmen, who were staring past her with the kkingdom grim disapproval they’d shown her for years — ever since her stepbrother had successfully circulated his horrible tale.

What a lively bunch we are…ha! However, there is more to our hero than legend has it.
A Kingdom of Dreams
I was upset about Thor and the pranks she pulled, but I understood her actions. That’s probably asking too much, but still, there was so much potential! The reader is pretty quickly made aware that Jenny’s loyalty is misplaced, as her father and stepbrothers are actually quite dastardly, and use Jenny for their own wicked ends with no care for her at all.
When she was fifteen, those were the things that had led her to try to avenge herself against her sly, spiteful stepbrother in what had seemed a right and honorable way — which was to secretly don Merrick armor and then ride against him, fairly, in the lists.

This made my blood boil and stressed me the HELL out. They are not for you.
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. In willingly surrendering her honor to him, she would become a harlot; a disgrace to herself, her family, and all she held dear.
I fell in love with these characters and I’m sad to see them go. I still feel a tug in my heart remembering it. Oh no, I have to marry the guy that is rich, adores me, has treated me like a princess, and is great in the sack!

I loved Jennifer as well because I can think back to times in my life when I felt as she did.
