way the book is written your able to form these beautiful pictures in your head Maybe it is where Jordan and Alexandra share a picnic or the place they go fishing and make love on the hill side, or when they go to a Ball Or all the beautiful flowers I also enjoyed all the side characters and what they added to the story They brought humor and some cynicism which rounded things outNow that you ve said all those other things, she whispered when he finally lifted his lips from hers several minutes later, do you think you could possibly say I love you I ve been waiting to hear that since you began and I love you, he said fiercely I love you, he whispered softly, burying his face in her hair I love you Jordan How did I stumble upon this book you might wonder It really was only one review

say.Girls, there are sexy scenes in Historicals too What are you looking at Jordan demanded finally, watching her A dragon When he looked bewildered she lifted her arm and pointed to the sky in the southeast Right there that cloud what do you see when you look at it A fat cloud Alexandra rolled her eyes at him What else do you see He was quiet for a moment studying the sky Fivefat clouds and three thin ones There is mistrust, misunderstanding, dickhead hero, friendships, falling outs It is my custom to have sherry in the drawing room at eight thirty and supper at nine In future, please join me here promptly at eight thirty, Alexandra Fire ignited in Alexandra s eyes, but she managed to keep her voice level You ve already told me where I may sleep, where I may go, who must accompany me, and when I must eat Would you care to instruct me as to when I may breathe Eventhough the ould biddy annoyed me in the beginning I liked her in the end.And if you guys have not watched NORTH and SOUTH, think it might be a BBC adaptation of Elizabeth Gaskell s novel, go and watch it Richard ARMITAGE as John Thorntom Le Sigh She was a gentle dreamer He was a hard realist She was, in fact, such a dreamer that she actually believed something wonderful was going to happen which wasn t that surprising since she also believed wet dirt in the springtime smelled like perfume Are you patronizing me I love you, he thought with each thrust of his body I love you, his heart shouted with each thunderous beat I love you, his soul cried out as Alexandra s spasms clenched him tightly I love you The words exploded in his being as he drove into her one last time and poured his life, his future, and all the disillusionment of his past into her tender keeping And when it was over, he held her in his arms, filled with a joy that was almost past bearing as he gazed at the white clouds floating in the powder blue sky All of them had shapes and meaning to him now All his life had shape and meaning to him now This author is wonderful I can feel her writing Alexandra was goodness and gentleness and trust And love She was flowers blooming on the hillsides and laughter floating through the halls When I read Judith McNaught I feel like I m transferred to some other dimension So you have this huge 500 pages long book with pitiful title and a truly awful cover and yet I very much think about when it s the right time to start reading it, because her books consummate my time completely I sincerely cannot think about anything else It s drastic and extreme and I tell myself that during my weekends

pages long book with pitiful title and a truly awful cover and yet I very much think about when it s the right time to start reading it, because her books consummate my time completely I sincerely cannot think about anything else It s drastic and extreme and I tell myself that during my weekends when I have enough time to go for a walk or for a swim because the sea is still very warm or to start playing tennis for fuck s sake, cause just behind my building are tennis courts, I need to do somethingproactive and physical I end up carrying this book to toilet, hating myself that I can t stop myself from reading it slower It s mind numbing and I feel very stiffened and my muscles are atrophying And then I think how come she is notpopular, because she is brilliant And I m hooked It s the same as with Pat Conroy I ve been delaying reading his The prince of tides for years Every time I see it in the library I say next month, or next year, and I know that when I get my hands on that book, I won t leave my flat for days because Conroy s geniusness makes my skin ache I have a friend who said the same thing about Conroy, who as well had been studying in Citadel just like Conroy and he s very proud of his military ring, but even he who is ruthless when we play social games like Pictionary because the way his mind works is utterly strange because his instincts and creativity are immaculate and eyes widening, this friend of mine says that when he reads Conroy he feels violated but in a good way He can take him in small dozes I can take Conroy in small dozes Just as Marilynne Robinson and William Trevor and Flannery O Connor and Raymond Carver Because they are all too much They are too good, but too sad and too realistic I adore each one of them and I ll read them repeatedly McNaught isn t making the same effect on me, but it s very close in a different way She makes me fall in love with reading Again and again I adore her characters and these perpetual and fatigued games they play with each other She writes about romance troubles and rakes and dukes and scoundrels and virgins and tons and castles and field fighting and society rules and naive girls and bad steel gray eyed men and all these books they could have been very flat and with flaws and books for spinsters with cats, and there you would have a problem if you looked at them like this, but truth to be said Judith McNaught writes utterly spectacular stories which make me scream with laughter and enjoy them immensely.This is why I ll never write an insincere review because you can say that 500 pages of romance book is easy to write because you obviously just need rakes and dukes and scoundrels and virgins and tons and castles and field fighting and society rules and naive girls and bad steel gray eyed men, but to melt all of the written into something wonderful really is Something Wonderful What is it you think is going to happen Alexandra shivered deliciously Something wonderful There is always something about historical romance that can get me out of a book slump There s just something about them that pulls on my heart strings with their one of a kind love stories And Something Wonderful didn t disappoint When seventeen year old Alex, daughter of a lord and a commoner, saves Jordan, the Duke of Hawthorne from some highwaymen, well that s when something wonderful begin What is it you think is going to happen Alexandra shivered deliciously Something wonderful There is always something about historical romance that can get me out of a book slump There s just something about them that pulls on my heart strings with their one of a kind love stories And Something Wonderful didn t disappoint When seventeen year old Alex, daughter of a lord and a commoner, saves Jordan, the Duke of Hawthorne from some highwaymen, well that s when something wonderful begins It isn t all flowers and rainbows that s what I love about Judith McNaught s novels It s a rollercoaster of emotions Jordan is a rake, manwhore, player call him what you want He does not deserve Alex She has life is wonderful goggles over her eyes is kind, selfless, so trusting, and so na ve She thinks of Jordan as a god, when he s nothing but a libertine I had a smile on my face the entire beginning of Something Wonderful After certain circumstances arise, Jordan and Alex are forced into a marriage Neither wants it But Alex makes it known that she will accept it And her young heart immediately falls for Jordan God, I was cringing at her naivety and declarations of love, for only Jordan to say Thank you But it was also so endearing to me It showed my black heart how selfless and true young love can be And hers was When Jordan disappears and is declared dead, Alex is broken But it was her husband s wish that she be accepted into society, and so she worked hard to become what he wanted At first, she was so na ve, and so in love with Jordan that she made a fool of herself, because she didn t know the kind of man he was She was unknowingly complimenting his mistresses looks, and becoming the laugh of the ton Until she changes it all around and realizes how Jordan had played her, and who he really was When Jordan returns, it s to find Alex about to marry his cousin The only reason he got through the torture he d been through, was thoughts of getting back to her He realized she was it for him, and he wanted a life with her A five star read for me if I didn t find some parts a bit slow But still a very enjoyable one, nonetheless Something Wonderful takes us on a journey of jealously, betrayal, lust and love Another great one by Judith McNaught, and I d absolutely recommend to lovers of historical romance Something wonderful had happened
