Sheridan Bromleigh had spent most of her early life as a happy vagabond with her unruly American father and his vagrant friends. Then, given over to the care of a strict maiden aunt, she was taught to be a lady—poor but genteel—and finally a teacher. When she was hired to act as chaperone to a pretty but spoilt heiress travelling to England to join an aristocratic fiance, ...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

After recently going on a historical romance binge, I was shocked to discover that I have never read a Judith McNaught book. I know, I know! Quit judging me! But better late than never, right?

Also, my sincerest apologies to my OCD squad for reading book 3 first, but I can firmly attest to this being a standalone. I had no problems diving right into this world, even though it was clear that characters from the previous books have cameos in this one.

“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 tw

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

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

4,5 stars!

I loved Sherry and how brave, honest and adventurous she is. Even if her romantic mind sometimes was a little OTP she still amazed me!

Stephen couldn't recognize his own mind and feelings even if they slapted him in the face. Such a pigheaded male.... He still broke my heart when (view spoiler).

I loved how Whitney and Clayton were portrayed in the book as a married couple and tried to "help" things...["br"]>["br"]>[
While this rating and review might seem harsh after my glowing-ish reviews of books one (glowing) and two (ish), I'm beginning to think my all-out love for KINGDOM OF DREAMS was a fluke. My rating of WHITNEY, MY LOVE was high despite the walking asshole of a hero and all because of the heroine, and in UNTIL YOU.. I just can't find it in myself to rate well for any of it.

Whatever magic and wonderfulness began with the first Westmoreland has clearly diluted itself over the generations as all subs

I don't know what it is with me and McNaught but I fear we are not meant to be. Book one must have been a fluke of wonderfulness. Then book two broke me. Now book three felt like it was written by a different author in terms of writing style and yet the shitty hero and annoying heroine situation felt strangely reminiscent of my feelings over Whitney My Love.

This story was a case of tennis, I was the spectator looking back and forth between each shot, often rolling eyes and getting gen

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

I did enjoy this novel a lot but I disliked the early parts that focused on the hero with his mistress. That bitch Helene was so possessive. Damn, but I thought whores were supposed to know their place in Regency society. This one thought she had the right to question him about other women in his life, like impending fiancees. This is the first McNaught novel where the hero actually has sex with another woman after meeting the heroine. That was just so fucked up, especially when it was just some ...more

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
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
Amazing! Amazing! Amazing!

Stephen Westmoreland, Earl of Langford, is England's most desired bachelor. One night Lord Burleton, whose wedding is the very next night, accidentally steps in front of Stephens carriage causing his death. 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

...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).

I DNF-ed it after about 70%, it was not worth it. Not to mention that both this and the last book could've been cut in half.

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.

1) Apparently "amnesia" gives me the heebie jeebies. I can't take kissing and getting touchy-feely with a woman who has no memory of who she is. I can't buy into a romance or relationship with a heroine who has lost her memory. Blech!

2) Problems aside from the yucky amnesia:
I don't think HR readers will disagree if I say that we have all seen the book where the hero's womenfolk have decided that he "needs" to get married and the womenfolk set about trying to make that happen.

For me this is a 4 and 1/2 well deserved stars!

Since the latest released HR I've read and didn't like at all, these older books have a shine of thier own when compared!

Here the story is not overly complicated, just enough to be interesting and appreciated! Even if I found the amnesia thing a little bit too streched.

I liked the hero and the heroine both. I loved her when she was growing as an urchin with her father, her indian and spaniard friends. I liked her less as lady, but even then she was

Stephen’s and Sherry’s story was so beautiful. There were scenes that made me laugh so much and others that were so intense.
I liked Stephen’s character more than his brother’s. Although this book had also a lot of pages, it was fascinating.
Finally, after a series of ok reads, a book that is really entrancing and complex.
Sheridan is a wonderful heroine in every way. So brave, so smart, so loyal. Stephen is a decent Westmoreland. After my bad relationship with his brother Clayton, I did not hold high expectations about him, but he surprised me as a strong and interesting hero.
All Westmorelands are not for the faint of heart (it’s a Judith McNaught), but I fell in love with Stephen and could relate to his pain and his doubts and his

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.

“If I had a hundred kingdoms, I would trade them all for you, my dearest love. I
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.”
