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
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
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

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
Aly is so frigging bored
I wasn;t sure that I wanted to give it 5* but t was so bloody funny that I had to :D

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'
The most desirable beauty in the land, wildly unpredictable Megan Penworthy has set her amorous sights on Ambrose St. James, Duke of Wrothston--a man she has never met but has every intention of marrying. No other suitor will satisfy her--especially not the common, if uncommonly handsome, horse breeder, Devlin Jefferys.

Posing as lowborn Jefferys to escape a potentially fatal confrontation, Ambrose is enthralled and infuriated by the brazen, duke-hunting redhe
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

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.
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. :)
Johanna Lindsey is my auto buy author! This book is one of her best!
However for those who aren't familiar with Johanna Lindsey, it might be hard because you have to take into account that this came out a long time ago. I read it a long time ago. I don't know if readers of today who will be reading this for the first time will get out of it what you would have 10 years ago...
I have history with it so I will love it forever.
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.
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

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

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.

si Megan malah punya hobi aneh,ngomong ma diri sendiri,kayak dikiri ada angel dikanan nya ada devil :D

Lucu sih ,paling suka di endingnya,si Duke bilang aku akan sangat memanjakanmu seperti halnya ayahmu memanjakanmu,*padahal sebelumnya
It was really funny. I liked the heroine. Her internal dialogue was great. I also liked that it wasn't trashy.
Stephanie Williams
I loved this book, wish they told us more about after they got married... I think that the main character were so much alike that it wasnt hard to see they would end up together.

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

Peep (Pop! Pop!)
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
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
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.
im such a huge fan of unrealistic historical novels. i love feisty women far too much to ever enjoy the spineless drivel that would probably be more accurate. megan however is a woman after my own heart tempermental and outspoken and damn anyone who defies her. enter devlin her tempermental match in every way. throw in a ton of misunderstandings that are dramatic and hilarious and everything in between and you have one hell of an entertaining book
I really liked this one. The best store in these series.
Actually it's naught especial: he is a duke, gorgeous and doesn't want to marry, she is the most beautiful and spoiled damsel. They are attracted to another from the start but just can admit it and fight a lot. Than everything get complicated and then they overcome their initial misgivings and then the so awww so lovely happy ending!! In all a nice, fun and lovely read!
What is there not to love in this book. There is so much drama between the hero and heroine, the things they say and the stunts they pull are brilliant. If a modern day hero shrugged of the heroines love there would have been some serious tears and heartache for chapters. They would not decide to move into the stables until they reconsidered. Ah its good to find a book where the hero and heroine are so well matched.
