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
"I’m glad," she said softly. "I wouldn’t want you to be hurt."
I don’t want to say too much about this one as you are better off just reading it blind.
I loved it.
“A lie is an affront to the soul, as well as an insult to the intelligence of the person to whom one lies.”
A lot of my friends do not read Historicals. Their loss is all I can say.
Girls, there are sexy scenes in Historicals too….
“What are you looking at?" Jordan demanded finally, watching her....more
"A dragon." When he looked bewildered sh
Why oh why have I not read more historical romance novels. Being only my second HR Something Wonderful was just that, something wonderful.
This story had me captivated right from the beginning. I quickly found myself submerged into the world of the characters and experiencing something different.
I truly loved Jordan and Alexandra’s story. I guess you could say it was love at first sight for Alexandra. It may have been because she was naïve but I would like to believe it was because her heart wa...more
Let me just start out by saying that no book has had a more appropriate title. And I must add that every single Judith McNaught book that I’ve read could have been titled the same.
I absolutely loved this! These two characters, Jordan Townsend and Alexandra Lawrence are the perfect blending of angst and love. And the old adage that opposites attract could not be represented in a better way.
Jordan Addison Matthew Townsend was an only child, and heir to his father’s title and estat...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...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
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
Alex is the most heroin I like. I'm so proud with her, depend on her naive, she can survive and not totally lost when she knew her husband's secret in London. By the way, she can manage it even though I can see her soul is suffering.
Jordan, likely other hero, not just being very handsome, he keeps his emotion deep in his dar...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
Also here the sparks fly between the hero and the heroine, but first, when they first meet, the heroine is very young and very naive. Still it is her sweet naivete that leaves a lasting impression on the callous and disillusioned hero.
The forced distance and the fact that the hero is presumed dead, make Alex grow and made her realize that her sweet, gentle and loving Jordan is not really a romantic hero...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
Kita akan dibawa tertawa, menangis dan rasa sayang yang dalam secara bersamaan kepada Alexandra yang lugu, polos, cerdas yang tidak menyadari kecantikan dan daya pikatnya…, dan kita juga akan dibawa hanyut dengan pesona Jordan dan juga rasa gemas, kesal kepada J...more
