Bestselling author Judith McNaught masterfully portrays a remarkable heroine, and an unforgettable passion, in this powerfully moving love story -- one of her most beloved novels of all time!

The tempestuous marriage of Alexandra Lawrence, an innocent country girl, and Jordan Townsende, the rich and powerful Duke of Hawthorne, is about to face its ultimate test of tender loyalty. Swept into the endlessly fascinating world of London society, free-spirited Alexandra becomes ensnared in a tangled web of jealousy and revenge, stormy pride and overwhelming passion.

Now, she will fight for his very life...and the rapturous bond they alone can share.

Oh well! What can I possibly say about Something Wonderful that will do this book justice? Honestly, this book is so much better than words can possibly describe, so good that I'm staring dreamy eyed even while I'm writing this review and think about it all over again!

Something Wonderful is maybe the best Historical Romance I have read to this day! Yeah, that good! It's so sweet, so well written, so incredible, that I urge everyone to read it, if you haven't already! You gather by now, that I really loved this book and then some more! And before saying anything else, a HUGE thanks to Giota from A Story Untold for insisting that I read this book immediately! It was totally worth it!

I won't say anything about the plot of this book. Believe me not knowing anything, just made me love it even more, so I don't want to spoil things for anyone. All I'm going to say is, that Judith McNaught is one incredible writer and this book just has the same beautiful writing style as her other books. The plot is engaging and you can't possibly put down this book, even for a single minute. As soon as you start reading it, there is no stop! Believe me! I skipped sleep to finish this one, I even skipped meals!

Alexandra is the most honourable and true heroine I have ever read, so kind, so good, that I just loved her to pieces! Jordan, is incredible, swoon worthy and all! A couple whose story will just stick to my mind for long since I finished this book.

All in all, Something Wonderful is indeed a wonderful story as the title proclaims, a very touching and sensitive story that will melt you! Just pick this book. You won't regret it, especially if you are a fan of the genre!


  1. The cover certainly doesn't look historical Anna and I think this one is in my pile of book by her. I'll dust it of soon and read it.

  2. Hi Anna!;)
    Great review!!;)
    I'm going to try to get into a few HR this year, I even got approved for a couple on Edelweiss, do you go on that website? I just found out about it this week, and I'm already approved for 7 books.
    You make me want to add this book to my Tbr list btw and so I will in the morning because I'm exhausted. I owe you an email and so tomorrow I'll write you a good one!;)
    P.s. about the gift card, I had no idea it was only US/CAN.....:( I always make my Giveaways (INT) well if you win, I'll talk to them.:) I'll catch up with you tomorrow when I wake up!

    1. You definitely should try reading a couple of HR romances Brandy :)You won't regret it believe me!And this one is a really good start :)

  3. I loved Something Wonderful. It one of those books that makes you invent endings for the hero and heroine after you are done reading it... For much of the book, I did not like the hero, Jordan Townsende. But McNaught redeems him with only one sentence towards the end of the book, when he thinks he has lost the love of his life forever. "I would like you to know that I did not sleep with Elise Grandeaux the night I saw her in London." With this statement, McNaught changes your whole perspective of Jordan! And the book takes on a whole new "wonderful."
