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

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

“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 boo

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
Until You by Judith McNaught is one of my favorite books by an author who would always remain as one of those that are unforgettable for me as a romance reader. For myself, authors like Judith McNaught remains as my go to authors when most books of today fails to satisfy me and hit all those spots that need to be petted and stroked when I pick up a romance to read.

Until You is the 3rd book in the Westmoreland saga and tells the story of Stephen David Elliott Westmoreland, Earl of Langford, Baron
Mary - Buried Under Romance
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

Read as part of the BOTM challenge in HR book club (jilted at the altar theme)

This was my first McNaught, and I thought her writing was in general delightful. Her writing includes much sly wit and humor that I enjoyed. I can see why she is so well-loved by many HR readers.

I really loved the heroine in many ways. Sheridan is a resilient and strong heroine, a type that appeals to me greatly. She has a very unconventional upbringing as vagabond on the American frontier with her father and many colo

So I think I'm done with Judith McNaught....I tried. Kingdom of Dreams is seriously one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE books. But I find I'm just too sensitive a reader to truly enjoy anything else she's written. There always seems to be just one scene (or more) that takes the book I've been loving and truly enjoying and just flushing it all down the toilet. Too far to be recovered. I really was loving this one. Then THE SCENE. Ugh. So in the end, I liked it, but I still feel too sad about what occurre ...more

This is absolutely one of the most romantic books ever! I listened to the audiobook and I really couldn't stop smiling, laughing, cringing, and feeling giddy all over, and my gosh, ALL THE FEELS!!!

I've read many of Judith McNaught's stuff before but I can't believe I waited this long to read this one. Sheridan Bromleigh is definitely my kind of a HR heroine -- not the shy and always blushing type.

Well here it goes...

I have no idea how to rate this book:

- I did not like it as much as Almost Heaven and Whitney, my love; I gave those two books 5 stars
- I did like it much more then quite a few of the historical romances that I have given 4 stars to

So neither 4 nor 5 stars feels right. I think I will compromise on 4, because I am bit angry about the ending of this book.

I enjoyed the plot of the novel a lot- at first I was doubtful of the amnesia theme but she managed to pull it off without it

Ho iniziato questo libro senza accorgermi che era il terzo della bellissima saga dei Westmoreland.
I primi due - COME IN UN SOGNO (con Royce-Lupo nero, wow… devo ancora riprendermi!) e WHITNEY, AMORE MIO – sono tra i miei preferiti della McNaught.
E devo dire che anche questo terzo mi è piaciuto parecchio.
A parte il fatto che qui ritornano sia Clayton che l’adorabile Whitney, la coppia protagonista è comunque all’altezza dell’indomita famiglia.

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!

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.

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
"You are a heartless, evil monster, and I cannot believe I let you touch me last night! I feel filthy and defiled--" A muscle began to tick in the side of his jaw, but Sheridan wasn't finished and she was too infuriated to care that he looked murderous. "I committed a sin when I let you do what you did to me last night, but I can pray for forgiveness for that. But, I will never be able to forgive my stupidity for trusting you and loving you!"

I really like this book. I don't think there is a book I've read by Judith McNaught that has been less than 5 stars. It's been a while since I've read some of her books so I guess I'll just have to re-read them all again. Unfortunately for the ones I don't currently have boxed up under my bed that I've had for years I'm going to have to hunt up used book stores for a copy (so I could keep it) or get one from Amazon.

Prva knjiga od McNaughtice koju sam pročitala. Znam da ju svi veličaju kao jednu od kraljica ljubavnih romana, ali, ljudi dragi nemojte mi zamjeriti, njene knjige su meni iste ko i svi drugi ljubići.
Tijekom čitanja sam iz radnje skužila da sam preskočila barem jedan dio, ali to nije bitno. Svi ljubići su ionako na isti kalup – upoznaju se pa se malo bare pa onda ona neće, a kad se predomisli onda on neće. Pa se malo svađaju i ljute jedno na drugo, naravno da uvijek bude neki nesporazum i da uvi

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

was nothing until you.”
“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.”
