I love this book. Don't know why, exactly - it's far from perfect, but something about it makes me re-read it every couple of years or so. Contrived, a bit. Realistic, not really. Familiar? Very. Nevertheless, something about this one makes it more than the sum of all of its parts.

It's pretty much your standard "Duke in disguise as a regular joe" romance. He's a gorgeous Duke in hiding, she's a spoiled brat who mouths off to him at every opportunity. They strike sparks off one another from their...more
Ok, this is the second Lindsay I've read where the hero spanks the heroine because she 'deserves' it and it's for 'her own good'. This has completely alienated me from the book and the author. Since I picked it up because of the rave reviews, maybe if someone can get over the above they might enjoy the book.

When Megan Penworthy is introduced we see her through her friend's eyes as someone good, sweet, naive and a little spoiled. But, when she meets the hero Ambrose St. James, masquerading as a...more
This book could be describe in one word, HILARIOUS ^-^ A friend of mine recommended this one a long time ago but I only got the urge to actually read it a couple days ago LOL.. silly me ;)

From the first chapter, this book already caught my interest and made me smile by only reading the 1st line, "Just what do you think you’ re staring at, Tyler Whately?". I thought "WOW.. this girl is really a shrew" LOL

I must say that I kinda like Megan despite her temper, she maybe 'perfect' in appearence and...more

mmmm review gw telat euy >_<

memorable scene pas megan (dr jendela kamarny) lg drooling body nya devlin trus kepergok ma devlin hmpfh

trus yg ini:
“I want to ride the stallion.”
“Just like that? No?”
“Your hearing is excellent.”
So much for her assumption. “You’re impossible!” she told him before she stalked out of the stable.
“I’m impossible?” Devlin said, glancing at Mortimer. “She’s got her husband all picked out, Mr. Browne.

I suppose there comes a moment in every woman's life when there's ABSOLUTELY NOTHING new to read in the house, and the only thing that presents itself is A ROMANCE NOVEL. Generally not a fan of drivelly romance to begin with (even Catherine Coulter lost interest for me after she thought she could write mystery novels,) I had to pick up this book for lack of better reading material.

Even worse than anything my expectations had ever prepared me for, this had to be one of the most trite, obnoxious...more

Johanna Lindsey is a guilty pleasure for me. There's rarely anything too heavy, or too dark, and the silliness factor I'd likely mock from another author somehow fits the worlds she creates.

Man of My Dreams was my first exposure to this author's work and I've read it a dozen times over the years. We have here a "fiesty" heroine (yes, I cringed as I wrote that) and a gorgeous rogue for a hero (I'm rolling my eyes) whose only compatibility seems to be lust and argumentative natures. The prose isn'...more
mind-blowing one ! awesome ! i just love both devlin n megan ! they had such scorching hot chemistry !sex was barely described, it was an oldie but u cud feel the sheets burning ! this is an absolute awesome read, n so much fun. not 2 be missed! i was glued 2 the pages, they were a very exciting couple ! it made me think of Whitney, My Love, however whitney my love is longer n more intense n poignant. the basic plot is the same but where whitney my love took a dramatic note, almost heartbreaking...more

ceritanya seru dan mengundang gelak tawa :pp
ngakak berat pas sadar mreka slalu "berduaan" di tmpt2 yg tak terduga,ya ditumpukan jerami lah,disofa la.ada2 aja :p

Trus tu dua bibir pada asik cekcok mulu.gak ada habisnya. hha.. Sama2 mau tapi malu malu gak ketulungan.

Lucu sih ,paling suka di endingnya,si Duke bilang aku akan sangat memanjakanmu seperti halnya ayahmu memanjakanmu,*padahal sebelumnya...more
Second try writing this review. I will just cut to the chase: this book is great when you need a light, romantic read, but it has some issues.

Issue #1: Our hero Devlin, the Duke that pretends to be a 'normal' horsebreeder, is a total jackass.
His game of pretend is the weakest I've ever seen. It's like he isn't even trying. Seriously, beautiful white shirts? Being disrespectful to people who would be superior to him?
But that aside, since it's not exactly my biggest concern. That would be the A...more

I loved the beginning when we first meet Tyler and Megan is asking him what he’s staring at and he responds with, “Why I was staring at nothing at all, Miss Penworthy. Absolutely nothing.l” Hahaha. BURN! I liked that because you could really tell he was tired of her.

The part with the Scots was nice, but it seemed out of a place and just used as a means to enter some Scots into the story.

I really enjoyed the first part of the book, I laughed quite a bit at their banter. But it seriously got old...more

Okay, so, this is the book responsible for my obsession with historical romance for the past, well, 18 years. I saw it sitting on the side table while I was babysitting for my hairstylist's kid. I read it over the course of two evenings babysitting. I was forever changed after that! LOL

While this book isn't a masterpiece, and reading it now I think to, why did I love this so's still a fun read.

And since it got me hooked on romance, it will always have a place in my heart.
Review yang saya berikan sangat subjektif, sangat bergantung pada selera pribadi saya.

Sinopsisnya membuat saya sangat tertarik. Saya memang suka cerita romance dengan pasangan yang menikah dan melakukan pertengkaran konyol, saling tidak mau mengalah (bickering couple).

Sempat melihat review dari pembaca lain, sepertinya kurang memuaskan bagi pembaca lain dan saya sempat ragu untuk membaca novel ini. Namun, saya pikir ini pasti kembali pada selera masing-masing. Sinopsisnya membuat saya sangat ter...more
The only reason I'm keeping my copy of this is the spectacular step-back cover that features a naked Fabio apparently trying to bang his way into the heroine's shoulder blades. Other than that, it's typical early 90s Lindsey: tempestuous heroine, autocratic hero, not enough sex, society stuff, or dress porn to make up for hundreds of pages of the leads fighting and bickering before suddenly deciding to fall on each others' genitals as a symbol of true love.
This was the first book I read when switching to e-books and it's still one of my favourites.
The storyline is plausable, the dialogues between the main two characters entertaining and utterly invigorating. The complications and misunderstandings in the book on all the right places. Loved her talks with herself and him calling her "brat." And I absolutely adored the ending and wished at the same time for another 100 pages. At least. :)
4.25, the couple in this novel were so likeable in a spitfire way. I laugh more often than I thought possible. Feisty, arrogant, sexy and humor all rolled into a fun story.
WTF is this?!

First she lets Devlin talk rudely at her, seriously he calls her "brat" such a sweet word to hear, then she lets him spank her!!! for the love of anything holy WHY?! Why would you allow a guy talk so rudely at you, threatens you with sexual intentions and spanks you for this obeying him?! What makes everything worst is she FELL INLOVE despite all that. Honestly this is nothing but arguments with an arrogant Duke who doesnt give a fuck. And if you think that I'm only bashing on the d...more

Rainy day - pure romance - read. I grew up reading Johanna Lindsey, and just love her early work. My all time fave though would have to be 'Man of my Dreams' A sassy gorgeous heroine, slightly spoilt but good at heart, meets her match in a strong confident man. They verbally spar and whilst they claim to hate one another cannot keep their hands to themselves.
If you're looking for an escapist read of pure romance (as much as I love PNR, it's nice to take an occasional break) and some laughs, the...more
kurang kurang kurang!!!! kok cuma segitu sihhhh. kurang nih!!! hahaha. kenapa JL ga pernah ada epilog? pngen banget tau kisah selanjutnya. duhhhh, ni novel knapa sweet banget sih. Devlinnnnn, u're the devil, but it's so cute of you for having Ambrose as your first name. humph!

kisah mereka nih cute walopun some part i don't understand seperti Megan yg tiba2 (kerasukan) bilang kehilangan bayi mereka, padahal ga pernah ada kejadian gtu. Devlin disini khawatir banget, eh tapi mereka make love ya dis...more

I cannot for the life of me understand how this book made it to print. As a fan of Johanna Lindsey's Viking Family Trilogy and other books such as 'Once a Princess' and 'You Belong to Me', I found 'Man of My Dreams' to be sorely lacking.

The plot, what little it had, jumped around in a rather nonsensical fashion, and when you add that to the constant head-hopping from one character to another this book almost gave me whiplash. In the span of two pages the author jumped through four different head...more

Tidak disangka di kediaman tuan tanah tempat Devlin bersembunyi, dia bertemu dengan gadis paling cantik yang pernah ditemuinya, Mega Penworthy. Sifat Megan yang cenderung manja, penasaran tingkat tinggi, keras kepala, sulit diatur, mau menang sendiri tidak bisa menepis perasaan tertarik Devlin.

This is one of those books that I can only enjoy under one of two circumstances. I would either have to be 12, completely inexperienced in matters of romance and not very picky when it comes to literature, or read it in a language that's my... fourth. It's too late for option no 1, so yay for option no 2! There are lots of ridiculous aspects to this book, and anyone with a feminist bone in them would probably be raging by page 10, but I don't care much for principles in books, I just want someth...more

A guilty pleasure of mine is the hidden identity romance, I guess it’s just exhilarating to read that a person falls in love despite the identity, focusing solely on the characters or time spent together, cutting out all social, prejudices, privileges, issues or others till what remains is the person inside. Well, this device isn’t always portrayed so clean and selfless as I imagine but I like it no less. Still, this book was exactly what I’d like to see from this plot device.

Megan Penworthy is the beautiful, fiesty young lady who wants to marry the Duke, Ambrose St. James to show one snooty lady that she doesn't need to be invited to any of HER balls. Unfortunately, Megan doesn't know the Duke and he has no knowledge of Megan plans on marrying him. Megan's father bought her a beautiful horse when she was younger from the St. James's and Megan named it 'Sir Ambrose'. Devlin Jefferys has employed himself out to Mr. Pentworthy to breed horses and to escape a potentiall...more

Funny but sometimes frustrating. And I love it!

Megan finds herself humiliated after the Marquess pointedly tells her that she is not invited to her ball in front of many people. She then vows that she won't be treated as such again and there's only one solution to that: outrank the Marquess. She sets her sights on the Ambrose St. James, the Duke of Wrothston...

...who is actually the horsebreeder her father just employed under the guise of Devlin Jefferys. And if Megan thought she can sink her cl...more
Romanzo rosa carino e snervante tutto insieme.
Non so forse perchè nel mentre stavo elggendo altri che mi hanno presomolto di più e quindi questo l'ho valutato non indispensabile...e noioso soprattutto all'inizio...infatti sono 170 pagine e ci ho messo quasi un mese! non mi ha proprio preso...
