Sheridan Bromleigh's early life had been spent as a happy vagabond, traveling around America with her father and riding bareback on an Indian pony. But these blissful days ended abruptly when, at fourteen, she was given over to the care of a prim maiden aunt. Within six years, Sheridan went from a carefree tomboy to a young woman who epitomized dignity and restraint --- at ...more

I really enjoyed this story. I wasn’t sure what to expect after having just read Whitney, My Love which could have been entitled A Tale of Misunderstandings and People Who Are Too Bullheaded To Even Consider Talking Things Out, … but I digress.

Until You was a pleasant surprise. I enjoyed the storyline and thought Stephen was very charming before he became an ass—but he wasn’t too big an ass considering his bride had left him at the altar. He did wait several hours

This is, without a doubt, one of the most ROMANTIC books I have ever read. I can’t remember another book that had me this captivated. Though I must admit that I’m in a bit of a fog as I sit here to write this review. I went into the beginning of Until You with semi-low expectations. After Kingdom of Dreams and Whitney My Love shot Judith McNaught into a favorite author spot, I was hesitant to read something of hers that would lessen my opinion of her skill. And this one had ratings (3.98 at the ...more

3.5. It sort of dragged in the middle but picked up again towards the end.


“Looking at you has been my favorite pastime from the moment you asked me to describe your face," he said solemnly, looking straight into her eyes.”



Happiness began to spread through Sheridan until it was so intense she ached from it. "I want to change your name," he said with a tender smile, "so there's no doubt who you are ever again, or who you belong to." He slid his hands up and down her arms, looking directly into he

“Looking at you has been my favorite pastime from the moment you asked me to describe your face.”

Another fabulously romantic story from Judith McNaught!!!! I am now completely addicted to her writing, and have just purchased four more of her paperbacks (since they aren’t available in ebook format)! I CAN’T GET ENOUGH of these characters. She has this incredible ability to spin a story into a hurricane of romantic bliss.

This story was very different from the first two books I read, bu

Recommends it for: Readers who want to finish up the Westmoreland series
What a meh, blah, ‘that’s it ?’ read from Judith McNaught. This book felt like it’d never really end and the steam is virtually nonexistent between the h/h. A real disappointment for this final installment in her Westmoreland series especially considering that the first two, Whitney, My Love and A Kingdom of Dreams, were 5 star keeper shelf reads.

The whole story centres around Sheridan Bromleigh, a lady’s companion from the US, who accompanies her charge Charise Lancaster (aka the spoiled brat h

Ok ladies here's another major hit from McNaught!!! As you all know she's one of my faves and I wasn't in the least bit disapointed in this one. I just hate to love books like this one... You know the kind where your on the edge of your seat just knowing that at any minute the book will take a turn for the worse (or the best depending on how you look at it) and the lives of the characters will never be the same? Thats how "Until You" was. Sherry lost her memory and with that came the loss of her ...more

...And yet another winner from Judith McNaught.

On the whole this one was quite similar to Once and Always. I could see so many similarities between Victoria and Sherry. I don't know if any of you noticed, but both heroines had childhood sweethearts who come back to marry them after a long separation only to find them married to the hero (in Once and Always it was Andrew who came to marry Victoria and in Until You it was Rafe who arrived in England to make good on his promise to marry Sherry).

Amazing! Amazing! Amazing!

Though it was only an accident, Stephen is torn with guilt for what he's done. He learns that the only family of Lord Burleton is his fiance who is arriving by ship that very next day! Set to make things right, Stephen heads to the ship to inform Charise Lancaster t

This is my first book by Judith McNaught and true to its favorable ratings, it is a very good read. UNTIL YOU is something like the embodiment of a pure romance novel, in that the romance takes precedence over everything else; no murder, intrigue, dastardly villain marred the pages of this book, which of course, may imply that the plot drags, but I am thankful to say that it does not, until about 70% of the book.

The amnesia trope has been utilized to allow for greater romantic development betwee

This was instantly a hit with me. From the first chapter I became engrossed in this amazing story of heartache and love. I experienced a wide array of emotions while reading Until You, from pure delight to extreme hatred. I cried, laughed out loud and found myself tense with anticipation wondering what was to happen between Sherry and Stephen. I dare say I was NOT dissapointed. McNaught gets a big check in my book of must read authors!

Amnesia is soooooooo not a bitch anymore!

[image error]

This is actually better than its predecessor Whitney, My Love *but really any book i think will be much better than that one because Clayton raped Whitney for Fudge sake* but still it's not one of the best JM novel I think because it dragged a little bit especially at the beginning, Sherridan's back story bored me to death! In fact it was so boring I really don't give damn about it and just skimmed those pages. Also my other problem was I

5 Stunning Stars !
A very enjoyable read indeed, as always Judith McNaught succeeded in giving a special touch to every book she writes ! I loved Sheridan so so much !!! and Stephen oh my lord ! he bewitched me body and soul, I couldn't even stay angry at him longer than two minutes...
I was so happy to read about Whitney and Clayton again !! that made the story even more sweeter !
I want a Nicholas DuVille book !!! that'd be really interesting, after all the poor lad deserves his own lady...

I have a feeling had this book not followed A Kingdom of Dreams and Whitney, My Love it would have been a five star read. It was still very good just not quite so emotionally involving. The love story was light and fun. There wasn't all the betrayal we come to expect from a Judith McNaught book in this particular installment.

That being said I just found this story to move a little slower (even though I didn't have my face buried behind a Kleenex the whole time) then the first two from the serie

It's been a while since I read this one. So out of fairness, I'm taking away the starred rating until I can do a reread and objectively evaluate this book. As I told my friend just recently, I read this book while I was in vet school, which was a generally craptastic time of my life. It could be vet school yuckiness overflowing unto this undeserving book. We shall see.

4.5 Stars; One of my favorites by McNaught, although I know it's not for everyone. Recently noted this wasn't on my bookshelf .... not sure how I missed it!

Mau dimulai dari mana? Aku sudah kepingin buku ini sejak (hampir) dua minggu yang lalu. Melihat nama penulisnya saja sudah bikin ngiler. :p
Dan ketika aku memiliki bukunya hari Rabu kemarin, tidak perlu menunggu satu haripun untuk membuatku membuka bungkusnya dan membaca. Setelah seharian membaca sampai selesai hari ini, hasilnya adalah aku puas! *dance*

Kisah antara Stephen dan Sheridan (Sherry) unik, sweet dan bikin meleleh. Bahkan keromantisan kisahnya sudah bisa dilihat dari sinopsisnya. *roll

Very good story, but not excellent. For one there seemed to be a lack of detail toward the end when Stephen and Sherry finally end up in bed. There could have been detail and deeper relationship building on the two of them, and a lot less on things that were less important. My overall feeling was that this story was a bit rushed and a tad more unfocused than the other books I have read from McNaught. The real Charise was just a blip and so inconsequential. She just appears to cause the upset and ...more

"Until you, I never knew what true love was...."
"Until you, my life was never complete."
"I was nothing, until you."
Every true romantic has dreamed of having these words whispered to them in the throes of mad passion or tender love making. And so has Sheridan Bromleigh in Judith McNaught's novel ''Until You".

After the death of her english-born mother and younger brother, Sheridan spent her childhood roaming the American countryside with her father and the many strangers that they met along the w

What can I say except, Oh My. Possible Spoilers This story has everything. It can evoke such deep emotion when you least expect it. Of course it's great to see old friends like Whitney, Clayton, Nikki and the rest, and they are written into the story so beautifully. Stephan and Sheridan were made for each other and I love the fact that though Stephan is head of heels in love with her he can never say the words. With so much love and emotion going through him he can only speak the words "Until ...more

I enjoyed most of it but was annoyed with inaccurate assumptions that created conflict.

It was like the author couldn’t think of anything better. In two different parts heroine “assumes” certain things are going to happen that are not true. I don’t mind using inaccurate assumptions if it fits the character. But somehow I wasn’t buying it. In one part heroine does not tell hero what is going on and then she disappears forever without checking the truth. Then hero “assumes” the wrong things, so he

McNaught books were bearable I thought. Until This. Until You.

I guess it is time the author and I part ways and call it quits to this uninspiring partnership.

This is my 5th book from the popular author; and historical or contemporary, 4/5 of ‘em didn’t evoke positive feels in me. I guess the magic died with the first one, Paradise; or perhaps I was young and naïve when I read it and there is a good chance I may not feel the same way about it now.

Okay I do admit that until about the first quarte

Only a book by Judith McNaught will make me put away my Kindle and pick up a paperback novel. Until you is the third book her Westmoreland saga. The novel is everything you want a romance novel to be but those of us that are fans of Ms McNaught are spoiled by her writing and come to expect nothing less from this incredibly talented author.

This story opens with Sheridan Bromleigh, a teacher from Miss Talbot's School for Young Ladies, on a ship and she is very nervous to meet Lord Burleton to expl

Another book of Judith McNaught yang aku baca selain Something Wonderful. Dan lagi-lagi Judith memukauku dengan gaya bahasa yang brilian, ide cerita yang jauh dari kata membosankan, dan permainan emosi yang luar biasa menegangkan.

Until you introduces you to Sherian Bromleigh an American that is escorting a young lady to her betrothed in England. She is in an accident and loses her memory and is taken care of by the handsome brother of Clayton Westmoreland (from Whitney My Love), Stephen. Stephen is bitter about love and feels that ladies only want him for his title and wealth. Against Stephen's will he falls under Sherry's spell. Sherry's character is lovable (my favorite scene is when she confronts Stephen about her hai ...more

I purchased this book mainly because I wanted to read Stephen's story. In his brief appearance in Whitney, My Love, I really came to like his character. He was charming, witty, humorous, caring and devoted. So, imagine my surprise when I began reading Until You, only to discover that McNaught had decided to change his character and make him cynical and distrustful -- all of which she explains, of course. Even so, it wasn't the Stephen I was looking for, though he still maintained his sense of ho ...more

“Sheridan bit back a teary smile at his quip, afraid to believe him, afraid to trust him, and unable to stop herself because she loved him. "Look at me," Stephen said, tipping her chin up again, and this time her glorious eyes looked into his. "I have several reasons for asking you to walk into that chapel, where there is a vicar waiting for us, but guilt is not among them. I also have several things to ask of you before you agree to go in there with me."

"What sort of things?"

"I would like you to give me daughters with your hair and your spirit," he said, beginning to enumerate his reasons and requests. "I would like my sons to have your eyes and your courage. Now, if that's not what you want, then give me any combination you like, and I will humbly thank you for giving me any child we make."

Happiness began to spread through Sheridan until it was so intense she ached from it. "I want to change your name," he said with a tender smile, "so there's no doubt who you are ever again, or who you belong to." He slid his hands up and down her arms, looking directly into her eyes. "I want the right to share your bed tonight and every night from this day onward. I want to make you moan in my arms again, and I want to wake up wrapped in yours."

He shifted his hands and cradled her cheeks, his thumbs brushing away two tears at the edges of her shimmering eyes. "Last of all, I want to hear you say 'I love you' every day of my life. If you aren't ready to agree to that last request right now, I would be willing to wait until tonight, when I believe you will. In return for all those concessions, I will grant you every wish that is within my power to grant you.”
