    With her meticulous detail, Henley captures the feelings of a man whose family was destroyed due to one cruel man's vengeance for his young wife's infidelity, an affair he could have prevented if he'd only loved her. It's an intriguing story of Irish revenge that consumes a life almost sacrificing the love of a lifetime.Set in the late 18th century, this is a story of Sean O'Toole, grandson of the Earl of Kildare, and brother to Joseph. The O'Toole family of Ireland was large, happy and prosperous involved in shipping and horses. On their birthdays, a few days apart, the family throws a huge party for Sean and Joseph. There, Sean sees Emerald FitzGerald Montague (half Irish/half English) when she is 15. Her father, along with Sean's and his grandfather the earl, are engaged in smuggling guns. To Emerald, Sean was a beautiful Irish prince who haunted her dreams. Soon thereafter, Emerald's cruel English father discovers the affair his wife and Joseph O'Toole are having and sets about to destroy the Earl of Kildare and his family. He arranges for the arrest of the Earl of Kildare, who dies in prison, kills Joseph and sends Sean to prison on the false charge of murdering his brother. Over the next 5 years of hard labor in a "death sentence" prison, Sean meticulously plans his revenge. Part of that revenge includes Emerald...I have never been disappointed by Virginia Henley and though I didn't give this the full five stars I have some of her other books, I still enjoyed it very much. And I loved the glimpse of Ireland and its people...and the hero is an Irish hunk to die for! I recommend it.

    To be honest, I don't expect much from Virginia Henley. Erotica with some historical references thrown in is her forte. "Dream Lover" was absolute drek from start to finish. It's obvious that she writes for herself, and apparently she likes abusive men. Every time I pick up one of her books, I feel like the kid in that joke about the optimist locked in the room with a pile of horse manure. Unfortunately for Ms. Henley, I have yet to find the pony. P.S. Was I the only one who noticed that Emerald's repeated dream about Sean was couched in the exact same phrases every time? "'Sean, Sean,', she whispered with heart-scalding hunger." AARRGGHHH!

    This truly is by far the BEST BOOK Virginia Henley has written. In her other novels (which i truly love) the hero is so easy to fall in love with. However, in this novel it is harder to love the hero-Sean and so very easy to love Emerald- Clearly she grows and matures into a woman throughout the course of this novel. When I think of Amber and Joseph and Shamus and Kathleen- I cry. Although the novel ends beautifully with Sean and Emerald together- My heart is still broken over the many lost loves. I could write forever about this book and I am undone by the emotions, spirituality, actions, and sexuality of Sean Emerald Amber Joseph Kathleen and Shamus. This novel is different from your others because the woman is not a shy coy maiden who has to be coaxed into love. Emerald's heart overflows with unrestrained love and passion while Sean keeps a part of himself locked away and later realizes his eternal love for Emerald

    Unless you want to be totally turn off by Henley's books, keep away from this one. This was the book that made me turn to other writers. It was a great disappointment, especially after reading 'Tempted' and other better ones. I am still wondering if i should read any more Henley books. This book is too depressing for words!!!!

    Disappointed! Dismayed! Letdown and possibly downright mad that I spent 25 cents for this book. Well, I'm not really mad over the cost, but thoroughly disappointed in the lack of historical references, the lack of passion by the characters and the lack of willpower, strength, tenacity found in the majority of Henley's heroines. This heroine was a dishrag, much like her mother. And yes, I understand that woman had few choices and little if any power or control over their lives, however, this particular heroine was too typical of an average woman in that situation; when I read, I don't want average! A historical romance novel is supposed to educate or enlighten you on historical references or occurrences during that particular time in history and the romance occurs usually while the two are at 'each other's throats' and battling wills (as Henley's characters are known to do). Not so in 'Dream Lover'. I cannot say that I disliked the characters, however, I never felt sympathy, joy, or anger when the characters supposedly felt that way. I didn't particular care about the outcome of the relationship or the ending of the novel. I don't consider this Henley novel a 'historical romance', romance maybe, but definitely not historical and definitely not typical of Henley!!

    This was my first Virginia Henley book. The story line was so graphic and shocking at times I realize it was a love it or hate it book. I loved it. Sean goes through some pretty heart stopping experiences that is so well written that it put me in the mind of some movie fick that makes you flinch because of some unexpected sene. The human emotion runs high in this book and I read it in one day.I often read the reviews of books I want to buy and books I already have to gauge if the avg person is thinking what I thought and it helps me to buy the next book based on are we are we thinking alike. This was a perfect example. I realize if you are not up for steamy, grapic, and intense story lines then this author is maybe not for you, but if you like it discriptive and full of human emotion not only is this the story for you but you will probley like most of her books.

    I've read many books but this one was just sad it had potential with the plot but the main characters couldn't keep their hands off each other they din't even to talk much with each other all they did together was... well you get my point. The scenes of passion were also very graphic.
