A Kingdom of Dreams
(e-book cover shown)
by Judith McNaught
Copyright 1989
Pocket Books
ISBN: 9781501145483
The Story:
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, no matter what he threatens. Boldly she challenges his will—until the night he takes her in his powerful embrace, awakening in her an irresistible hunger. Suddenly Jennifer finds herself ensnared in a bewildering and seductive web of pride, passion, and overwhelming love. This beloved tale about two defiant hearts clashing in a furious battle of wills in the glorious age of chivalry “will stay in your heart forever and be a classic on your shelves” (RT Book Reviews, Top Pick).

My Thoughts:
Apparently, I'm reading this series completely out of order, but no matter. Each book can be read as a standalone. After having read and unfortunately, disliking Whitney, My Love due to the fact that the hero was more of a villain than anything resembling a gentleman, I was hoping that this book would be different. A Kingdom of Dreams had a different setting, different time period, and, blessedly, a different hero! While Royce the Duke of Claymore aka Black Wolf was still a bit of a bully, he at least was not constantly verbally abusing or physically assaulting Jennifer Merrick like his ancestor did Whitney.

I personally love a good Scottish romance, and while this wasn't on par with, say, Outlander, it was still a fun diversion. As I said in my earlier review of Whitney, My Love, I actually like McNaught's over-the-top writing style. She certainly has a flair for the dramatic!
