Reading Whitney, My Love took me on such a roller coaster ride of emotions that I’ve been struggling with exactly how to review it and how to rate it. When I was upset and sobbing I wanted to give it a 1 star rating. When I was laughing, smiling and sighing, I wanted to give it a 5 star rating. Then it dawned on me – for Judith McNaught to be able to make me feel such a wide range of emotions – joy, despair, passion, pain, betrayal, hatred and love – and feel them ...more
Five solid stars
I must admit this was a wonderful read. Had my eye on this one for a long time BUT it is not available on Kindle. If that is the case I usually don't bother buying a book. There have been 3 other books I did buy in paperback since I started my kindle obsession and in the end I gave in and got this one.
I hadn't really read reviews so was expecting a nice, gentle, Historical romance. My emotions were all over the plac ...more
The entire book our hero's either acting from selfish ulterior motives, paranoid distrust (that results in cruelty), or 'let's make this all about me' guilt = /. During the course of the book he beats her until she cries (I forget whether it was a horse whip or a ...more
Then there's the whole Clayton beating Whitney aspect, which, again historical romance, things like that sometimes happen. It was in 'Outlander' and in the first book of this series, but neither of those beatings were with a riding crop nor were they ...more
I ADORED THIS BOOK!
After reading this one I read all of JM books.
YES, for me it was that good!
This story starts off with an beautiful girl named Whitney who's father was cold and indifferent to her. He sends her to Paris to get some manners and some refinement. Which she does that and more, as she attracts the attention of a Duke! And not just any duke but the duke of Claymore.
A Duke that would love to keep her and cherish her.
She was a challenge to our hero so he go ...more
Whitney My Love - [Westmoreland Saga 02] - By Judith McNaught
Several days after finishing the 2nd book in the Westmoreland series, I still had no idea what to say. This book made me feel such a wide range of emotions that I truly didn’t know what to make of it. First I was charmed, then frustrated; the next Chapter I was laughing; a few pages later I was enraged. After one too many plunges from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows, I alm ...more
“Missing you?” she giggled incredulously. “I could cheerfully murder you.”
It was while reading this novel, that I decided I needed an epic romance shelf. I mean, why can fantasy be categorized as epic, and yet romance is just "romance?"
Whitney, My Love had about as many pages as a GOT novel, and every page was just so good.
I read romance for the thrill of falling in love, the passion of jealousy, the excitement of being intimate for the first time, and sometimes for the heartbreak and the angs ...more
“Not even in my weakest moment have I considered letting you go.”
And here is yet another example of PERFECTION in romance. Yes, Judith McNaught has completely captivated me, again. I cannot say enough about these fabulously entertaining romances. From beginning to end, I was glued to the pages, devouring every word with rapt anticipation. The dialogue between the characters was so flawlessly achieved, it was like verbal sword fighting between equall ...more
I've discovered I have a first edition vintage copy of this book! And since I read this when the dinosaurs roamed the earth ( my teen years ) and can't remember shit..... It's up for an e-reread. ❤ ...more
Under the dark, languorous eyes of Clayton Westmoreland, the Duke of Claymore, Whitney Stone grew from a saucy hoyden into a ravishingly sensual woman. Fresh from her triumphs in Paris society, she returned to England to win the heart of Paul, her childhood love . . . only to be bargained away by her bankrupt father to the handsome, arrogant duke.
Outraged, she defies her new lord. But even as his smoldering passion seduces her into a gathering storm of desire, Whitney cannot -- and ...more
This review was posted at My Secret Romance
Since this book was published in 1985, there is no need for me to go into full detail about this book. There are over 280 reviews-and that's only counting the 5 star ones, about this book on Amazon. What could I possibly say that hasn't already been said? That it was the most beautiful book ever written? That it has more romance than I have ever read in my life? That I cried, I laughed, and I had the shakes because my heart was racing so fast? That afte ...more
Just a brief summary...Clayton Westmoreland, the duke of Claymore met Whitney St ...more
'I thought Whitney really lost her true sense of self when Clayton raped her. She seemed to loose all pride, she went running back to him. He didn't seem to care going out with others and then getting engaged. I think what really shocked me in the end, they never really talked about his lack of trust with her, they never talked really about how he hurt her. Then after leaving her to go to Londen and talking about getting a mistress and then sneaking out of the Ball to tal ...more
First of all, the "hero." I hated him from cover to cover. Yeah, sure, he met all the historical romance novel pre-requisites. He was beautiful and wealthy and titled and worldly and all that jazz. However, he was also:
-a self-righteous jerk
But his biggest flaw? That he never truly atoned for, nor redeemed himself enough for the ...more
This book… Yeah. It brought me to my knees. I’m a wreck right now because of it, and I have to express this … turmoil inside of me RIGHT now, or else I wont be able to sleep tonight.
McNaught takes you to a roller coaster ride, with a promise that goes like this: You will cry. Then you will laugh. Then you will shake your head. You will repeat these motions again, again, and again. Yes, you will, reader mine, wether you want to or not. And you will love me because of this ...more
Clayton Westmoreland is a tough one too love!
He loves Whitney beyond words, but also can turn on a dime and treat her like crap! He is so hot tempered! He was a little tough on her most of the time. I liked him nonetheless... He sort of redeemed himself with me... just barely...
I h ...more
Absolutely wonderful! This is an Historical romance that you can NOT guess what will happen next, no matter how sure the clues may be. Each time a conclusion seems obvious, the plot twists and the reader is once more biting nails and turning pages. My only complaint was Clay's case of "repeated behavior" (I'm trying to couch this so it doesn't spoil). After the damage it caused the first time, I just couldn't believe he would fall into it a second.
In this particular re-issue, Ms. McNAught ...more
I was just as emotionally invested in these characters as I was with the ones in Kingdom of Dreams. Whitney is simply wonderful. She was a headstrong, flighty child with no sense of propriety, and a ridiculously romantic side. She grows up ashamed of herself, because she is also self-aware and realizes how different she is from the rest of society. The fact that her father is extremely disappointed in her is another inescapable fact. Then she moves to Paris with her aunt and uncle. Determined to ...more
I have read the older version of Whitney. I hate the idea that a writer has changed parts of her own work because people didn't like it. It is what it is; take it or leave it. So I had deliberately read the older version. However, I was dying to read the extended ending, so I got myself a copy of the newer version too. I loved what I saw of Whitney and Clayton in this sort of epilogue, but, unfortunately, it was very little. These seven extra chapt ...more
The characters in Whitney, My Love remind me a lot of Rhett, Scarlet and Ashley from Gone with the Wind. Not that I'm complaining. I loved Gone with the Wind and must also declare my love for this novel.
To summarize briefly, Whitney is a rebellious tomboy that enjoys performing show jumps on horses, using slingshots and having an unhealthy obsession for her neighbor Paul Sevarin. Her disappointed father sends her away to France to becom ...more
Absolutely adored, cherished...LOVED this book! I thought it was better than KOD, which I also really loved, so that's saying something. This story is timeless and unforgettable. The depth of adoration and the intensity of emotion between Clayton, Duke of Westmoreland, and Whitney Stone was indescribable.
At 700 pages, it's intimidating, but believe me, it goes by quickly and keeps you absorbed right till the end. I can't say enough about it. There was laughter, difficulty, angs ...more
Bildiğim kadarıyla bu kitap Judith McNaugh'un ilk romanı.Tam 708 sayfalık bir işkenceye dönüştü benim için.Beni bırakın tarihi aşk romanı kitap okuma zevkinden soğutan bir kitap.Daha önce bir kitabı beğenmediğim zaman kimseye 'bu kitabı okumayın çok kötü' dememiştim.Çünkü sonuçta renkler ve zevkler tartışılmaz.Ancak ilk defa söylüyorum ki bu kitabı okumayın arkadaşım.Çünkü bu kitap 708 sayfalık bomboş bir kitap.
Spoiler demeden yoruma dalıyorum. ...more

"I'd come back to haunt you," he threatened with a grin.
"And that," she said, "is the only reason why I haven't tried.”
