Something Wonderful (Sequels #2)
The tempestuous marriage of Alexandra Lawrence, an innocent country girl, and Jordan Townsende, the rich and powerful Duke of Hawthorne, is about to face its ultimate test of tender...more
There's this one scene when Alexandra got shot and Jordan thought she would die, the words Jordan uttered just give me pinches in my heart every time. I'm not a cry-baby but I was picturing this scene in my head, and I felt a lump in thr...more
"You lost the fish!"
"That was not a fish," Jordan retorted, looking up at her. "That was a whale with large teeth."
"Only because it got away," she retorted, laughing.
Her laughter was as infectious as her enthusiasm, and Jordan couldn't stop himself from grinning even though he tried to sound stern. "Kindly stop belittling my whale and let's open those baskets. I'm starved."
...Goaded by her insinuation that he possessed no imagination, Jordan narrowed his eyes and stared hard—an...more
Love Jordan, even though earlier in the story I found him so very exasperating.. A rake, scoundrel, womanizer, but oh, so very irresistible!! LOL But at the end he proves that he is a man who could truly appreciate his wife, and able to love her the way she deserves to be loved..
Love Alex, although at the beginning a bit naive and childish (well, actually she IS a child when she married her rake of a husband ^-^) in two years she proves that she cou...more
This story is about Alexandra Lawrence who at the start of the book is a young and naive country girl who's been carrying the burden of her household for the past few years. One night on her way home from a neighbor's jousting/birthda...more
Yes, it is that good. Yes, I totally ruined everything else I was supposed to be doing once I started reading this story. It is one that literally drives you nuts wondering what will happen next. The only way around it is to keep reading. Nothing else gets done well until it is finished!
The characters are believable, the angst is palatable, the romance aspect real, the story is gripping (although...more
I can also say that this one was the most ‘remorseful’ novel I ever read. i can’t forget how it broke my heart the time Jordan learned Alex's life as a child and as a daughter. i can hardly stop my tears too as Jordan saying 'i love yous' for it was a littl...more
This book is so romantic that I can't put it down. I slept late just to finish it.
I love how McNaught wrote Alexandra and Jordan's love story. I like how she added a little bit of suspense towards the end. I like how she established the characters.
My favorite character in this book is the dowager duchess, Jordan's grandmama. Every time I try to imagine how the characters might look like, I always see Meryl Streep as the Grandmama. I...more
Something Wonderful is maybe the best Historical Romance I have read to this day! Yeah, that good! It's so sweet, so well written, so incredible, that I urge everyone to read it, if you haven't already! You gather by now, that I re...more

However, Alex and Jordan seemed really similar to Elizabeth and Ian. Well, particularly Jordan and Ian.
I appreciate that in both of the books the females are extremely strong yet compassionate people, especially for the time period. (That's something about Almost Heaven that bugged me -- I had a heck of a time pinning down the time period. In Something Wonderful it was clear much earlier.)
I can rate book...more
I love a good romance. Key word "good". I don't like my time being wasted when it comes to any genre. I try to stay away from "chick lit" and by chick lit, I mean those books about twenty-somethings and above, where it's supposed to be humorous in some way with a dash of romance tossed in. I avoid these because most of the ones I've read were HORRIBLE. (with exception to S...more

I really loved it, I couldn't put it down I loved everything about it. I admit I was revolted half of the book and I had to remind myself a thousand times that it was a romance and would actually have a happy ending even if it didn't look like it.
From start to end it's an fascinating story, th...more
il suo modo di scrivere mi piace moltissimo, e la vena autoironica dei protagonisti è un vero spasso, soprattutto quando si fanno discorsi mentali

"A dragon." When he looked bewildered she lifted her arm and pointed to the sky in the southeast. "Right there—that cloud—what do you see when you look at it?"
"A fat cloud."
Alexandra rolled her eyes at him. "What else do you see?"
He was quiet for a moment studying the sky. "Five more fat clouds
and three thin ones.”
