Something Wonderful, . Part of Sequels series by Judith McNaught. I hope you enjoy the book you are about to read. Something Wonderful was my third Regency historical and my first New York Times bestseller

Something Wonderful, . Something Wonderful was my third Regency historical and my first New York Times bestseller. I mentioned in the reader letter for Once and Always that nearly every page of every manuscript is like an experiment in ways to please my readers and improve my writing skills. I also said that these experiments sometimes lead me to terrific discoveries. In Something Wonderful, I experimented with adding an epilogue for the first time, and I was surprised and delighted by the way it carried the story to an even better, fuller ending.

And Something Wonderful didn’t disappoint. 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. 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, player-call him what you want. 6 people found this helpful.

Flash_back
“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, 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 naïve. 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 naïve, 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."

I can't believe it's been 29 years since I read this book the first time , and I don't know why it's taking me this long to reread it . I have my standard classics that I reread periodically. Somehow I forgot all about this series and how much I loved it . Over the years I have given up many of my paperbacks and tried to replace a lot of my books electronically. When he finally we published these in e-book versions I've been trying to replaced them. Oh what a treat it is to rediscover these classics . They never fail to put a smile on my face and make my heart feel warm all over again . It's like being reunited with treasured old friends .
Alex and Jordan are one of my favorite couples right along with Claire and Jamie . The great romance you definitely have to try this one warning though you may not want to put it down and you'll have some bags under your eyes for a couple of days, but definitely read read read this this one!

5 stars because I've been a fan for decades.
Spoilers abound!
Started ordering the kindle version of JM's books simply because I was hooked on her books many years ago. They are so riddled with angst and emotional roller coasters with beautiful endings that just makes you sigh.
Anyway Something Wonderful is typical of books from the 90s. Full of beautiful and flawed characters. It's unapologetic in its use of cliches and drama for the sake of drama. The only complications are the misunderstandings between h/h which is compounded by well-meaning friends. Who needs enemies?

(Spoiler below)
There are several flaws in the story as well. Some things are not fleshed out enough to satisfy my curiosity. For example, Hawk goes through a horrendous YEAR of torture and pain in a foreign land, for which he was taken for dead, but he just bounces back into London once he gets free. Not too much was spent on recovery or any ill effects. It's like "oh I spent a year in chains and tortured and nearly died, but I'm fine really. I'm more interested in going back to being this rich supercool Duke with ice running through my veins."
They never even talk about it. I find that a major waste of plot line. And not even Alexandra (who at one time loved him unconditionally, before her blinders were removed that is) thought to ask or worry about it. Life, obviously goes on pretty quickly back then.
The back and forth love/mistrust/jealousy/love roller coaster is jarring too. Good thing I've read this book a long time ago to know what to expect.
One thing I learned is that reading JM's books at different stages in my life is quite enlightening lol.
