Not a big fan of paranormal or time travel but this book seems interesting otherwise. How prevalent is the time travel? About how many pages of the hero in the past would I have to endure?
Jeri I can’t say exactly how many pages That being said, the time …more I can’t say exactly how many pages That being said, the time travel isn’t quite Almost like a past life? But the past and present are really tied together. I agree – I am not a big fan of time travel, but I don’t think I would classify it in this way.
This particular book is somewhat out of style for Kleypas, but it is a good read. See 2 questions about Prince of Dreams…. Lists with This Book. Jun 03, Readdiction rated it did not like it Recommends it for: An overbearing hero who would do anything to get what he wants. He’s also an unfaithful husband who visits brothels. True, he’s been abused, had a horrible childhood, prnice c’mon! There were no redeeming qualities. I could not help just keep hating him.
The only reason he changes his ways is because he basically goes back in time and has, what seems to me, an incestuous relationship with a great-grandparent who was similar to his current wife. When he comes back to the present, I couldn’t seem to g An overbearing hero who stokehurrst do anything to get what he wants. When he comes back to the present, I couldn’t seem to get over the fact that it was not his syokehurst that changed him, rather the ancestor.
This is one of my least favorite novels, I could barely finish it because it was just too painfully awful IMO. I’d recommend reading her Wallflower series instead! Nov 06, Lord Rose stomehurst it did not like it Shelves: I did not like this book. A hero treating a heroine horribly but then realizing it and actually doing something about lksa is one thing.
Not goo, but at least he sees that there is something wrong. A hero treating a heroine horribly but then suddenly traveling back in time and completely changing his personality is just W I did not like this book.
A hero treating a heroine horribly but then suddenly traveling back in time and completely changing his personality is just WTF. And then not only does he travel back in time, but he falls in love with another woman. Yes, she may have an uncanny stokehkrst to the heroine, but no matter how similar, she’s still a different personwith completely different life experiences.
And so the hero has now lived a completely different life for a while, but has somehow managed to fall in vreams with the heroine during that time. And after he dies in the past-timeline, the past-heroine lives on forever alone in her old age. If both of them had traveled back stomehurst time, that would have been one thing.
But the way it worked out, the hero is in love with someone who no longer exists, and lias has completely changed his personality. The present-heroine should have just kicked him out and been done with drrams.
Feb 16, Julianna rated it liked it Recommends it for: Prince of Dreams started off with an excellent, engaging story that was hard to put down, but like it’s predecessor in the Stokehurst series, Midnight Angelit tends to loose steam during the second half.
The book is arranged in four sections, and the first two sections are full of the deep, dark emotions that have become a Lisa Kleypas trademark. Prince Nikolas is quite possibly the darkest hero that Ms.
Prince of Dreams
Kleypas has written and stokehurdt I have read, yet I ileypas him to be thoroughly fascinating. He Prince of Dreams started off with stokehurrst excellent, engaging story mleypas was hard to put down, but srokehurst it’s predecessor in the Stokehurst series, Midnight Angelit tends to loose steam during the second dgeams.
He was not stokehurat Emma’s wounded animals in his unpredictability, one moment being manipulative and cruel, the next tender and gentle. The reason I was able to like Nikki in spite of his dark nature is that I felt the author gives the reader sufficient insight into his psyche to understand what truly makes him tick, and he certainly had good reasons for behaving the way that he did. I was also able to give him some measure of respect, because unlike dark heroes in some other books, he never tried to force himself prunce Emma sexually nor did he ever physically abuse her in any way.
Unlike some readers, I wasn’t overly disturbed by Nikki’s interest in Emma from the time she was only Also, Nikki had minimal contact with Emma over her teen years, never outside the supervision of her parents, and he never acted dreamms his interest until Emma was a grown woman old enough to make her own decisions.
I also thoroughly enjoyed Emma during the first half of the book, as she was still every bit the free-spirited young girl that we had met in Midnight Angelonly grown up now with a few new eccentricities that made her all the more dreama.
She still harbors the same insecurities about her height and appearance which I found very relatable in the previous book. As an animal lover, I really enjoyed her menagerie and her involvement with stopping animal cruelty. I really enjoyed watching Nikolas and Emma find solace in their shared friendship and then trying to relate to each other in the context of marriage, when Nikki was so resistant to accepting or giving love.
It was also nice to watch Emma mature and realize the meaning of true love. I felt the problem with the story came about with the time travel aspect in section three, and then when Nikki returned to his own time in section four, the whole dynamic of the story changed. The time travel section was a nice little love story on it’s own, but I never felt like Ms. Kleypas gave the reader any reason for Nikolas allowing himself to fall in love with the past Emma other than the legend fulfilling itself or perhaps him being alone in a different time and place with no familiar faces other than hers for comfort.
It seemed like this whole section was simply a plot device for returning Nikolas to Russia, since he was in permanent exile and unable visit his home country any other way. Once Nikki returned to his own time, I felt the story fell rather flat. There was also a complete role reversal as Emma became the cynical, jaded and distrusting one.
Though understandable considering Nikki’s past behavior, this side of her faded rather quickly, again with little explanation. The ending had a few interesting developments and some mild excitement, but it wasn’t really ov to make up for the previous weaknesses I’ve mentioned.
While Prince of Dreams was an improvement over its prequel, Midnight Angelas with that book I still would not recommend it to first-time Lisa Kleypas readers.
Lisa Kleypas Stokehurst Family Series: Books Midnight Angel Prince of Dreams by Lisa Kleypas
Kleypaz one of Ms. Kleypas’s other books first and save this one until you’ve become a fan like me. It is also much better when the prequel is read first, since Nikolas and Emma played pivotal roles in that story, and while Luke and Tasia from Midnight Angel did not play a huge part in Prince of Dreamsthey were still seen several times. For a book with a similar storyline including a dark, brooding hero who suffered childhood abuse, try Loretta Chase’s Lord of Scoundrels.
The two books reminded me a great deal of each other, but Lord of Scoundrels was done much better in my opinion. View all 11 comments.
Mar 25, Tina rated it did not like it Shelves: The cheating bastard goes back in time and falls in love with some woman who’s just like his current wife heroine so when he returns he’s a changed man. This book was totally confusing and illogical. I do have to say that Nikolas is a very unique hero. He’s dark and conflicted. He wants Emma but doesn’t know what to do with her when he gets her.
Lisa Kleypas Stokehurst Family Series: Books 1-2: Midnight Angel & Prince of Dreams
He does everything he can to destroy her love for him. But at the same time, he yearns for her love with all his heart. A romance novel, for stokehurts. But I felt it was also a character study. Nikolas is a character that makes you want to keep reading to see if he’ll get a clue and turn his life around. He almost waits too late, but a magical twist of I do have to say that Nikolas is a very unique hero. He almost waits too late, but a magical twist of fate sends him on the path to redemption.
This is definitely one of Kleypas’ more darker books, but it’s worth the read.
