Revelling in Romance: A Kingdom of Dreams by Judith McNaught
A Kingdom of Dreams by Judith McNaught
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.
This book contains one of my most favourite scenes in any book. When Royce is nearly dead but refuses to hurt Jennifer's family... sighs... so romantic. I read this way back in the early 90s and this was a re-read for me every few months! Dramatic, hurt/comfort, misunderstandings, alpha male, strong heroine... loved it all...
