    1. Margo, the housekeepers daughter, has always been in Josh Templeton's life. And he's always loved her. He has helped her out of a few scrapes, but this last one has almost broken her.This is a beautiful romance with wonderful characters! Nora has the gift of keeping her main hero and heroine in the foreground while setting up the story for the next book and the one after that. She's amazing!! 😊❤️❤️

    2. If you like Nora Roberts's books then you will enjoy this one. It is pretty much her standard fare with three beautiful and talented female friends about to meet the loves of their lives, one at a time of course, in each of the three titles of a trilogy. I quite enjoyed this one but the two lead characters were actually not very nice and probably deserved each other. I do not feel compelled to seek out the next book in the trilogy although I would probably be happy to read it on a beach some day [...]

    3. This is a good story and introduction of the characters for the trilogy. I just didn't like Margo, the main character in the story. She was just too superficial and self absorbed. I enjoyed the relationship between the friends, which was the high point of the story. It's worth it to read this book just to get to their stories. And maybe Margo won't annoy others as she did me.

    4. Sometimes I just feel like reading a romance, and who's better at good romances thanNora Roberts? That's why I read Daring to Dream, which allowed me a few hours of enjoyable daydreaming. Roberts might be a shopkeeper at heart if you consider her romantic heroines. If you like Roberts, you certainly already read many of her successful stories and her leading ladies like Margo: there's Brianna and her B&B Blackthorn Cottage of Born in Ice; Rosalin with her In the Garden nursery of Black Rose; [...]

    5. Daring to Dream (#1 in the Dream Trilogy) follows fiesty Margo Sullivan from her modeling days, the inevitable fall from grace, and then straight jump into bed with a man who she's known all her life. This book, and I swear I don't generally say this about Nora Roberts' books, felt contrived and silly from the onset. I found Margo to be a brat and her newfound love, Josh Templeton, a jerk with anger and jealousy issues. Margo, of course the housekeeper's daughter, grew up in the fabulously wealt [...]

    6. What a fabulous start to yet another of my favorite NR series!!!Daring to Dream, the 1st of the Dream Trilogy introduces three “sisters”, who, whilst not by blood, have a strong and loving bond, growing up together in the beautiful Templeton House overlooking the Big Sur and we are taken on a journey with Margo Sullivan, the beautiful and passionate daughter of the Templeton’s housekeeper, has always dreamed of fame and glamour and being more than just the “housekeeper’s” daughter.Th [...]

    7. i always hate getting stuck with a main character like this! she's all concerned with fame and fortune,has apparently slept with everyone-sometimes just to boost her career-and had an affair with a married man.what started out like a good book ended quicklyally quickly. the prologue was the only interesting thing in the whole bookd nora never really went anywhere with ite characters aren't likeable,which is typical in a nora roberts bookere's a lot of short. sentences likeis that arenoying to re [...]

    8. 3.5 stars.Can't believe this trilogy is already 20 years old! This was a re-listen and still surprisingly enjoyable. It's interesting to see that smoking was so cool in those days!

    9. While it wasn't something special, it was definitely among the better romance novels I've read until now. Which is, you know, worth 4 stars.

    10. Two irritating, arrogant lead characters -- I guess they deserve each other. I kept reading the trilogy because I liked the secondary characters in this one.

    11. Creo que es la primera vez que le pongo un puntaje tan bajo a un libro de Nora Roberts.Hay muchos elemento clásicos del estilo de Nora: Margo, Kate y Laura han crecido juntas, inseparable amigas proveniente de distintos ámbitos pero que encuentran el elemento común en su amistad y el escenario que les da esa oportunidad es la casa de los Templeton junto con la leyenda que la zona inspira, algo que en el corazón de tres niñas románticas las une y las marca. Es una trilogía así que hay un [...]

    12. ok so the book it self was 3 stars in my opinion as far as romance, but i gave it 4 because i liked the way NR created this characters and made them work out in romantic story.Let me warn you,that is not the typical heroine that is looking for loveMargo`s priorities are to make something of herself. She is portrayed a bit as shallow,careless,but very loyal person.What captivated my attention of this book was the premise. Margo achieves her "dreams" above and beyond only to find herself back home [...]

    13. Another satisfying read from Nora Roberts. I'm a little disappointed in myself that it took me this long to read the Dream series but better late than never.The series revolves around 3 lifelong friends - Laura Templeton, daughter of a hotel magnate, her cousin Kate Powell, orphaned young and brought to live with the Templetons and Margo Sullivan, daughter of the Templeton's head housekeeper.It's a great story that tells the tale of a woman's journey to realizing what is truly important is famil [...]

    14. 1º volume da Trilogia do Sonho.Outro livro que iniciei sem grandes expectativas e que acabou por me surpreender pela positiva. A Trilogia tem como protagonistas três grandes amigas de infância que foram criadas juntas e que se amam como irmãs, apesar de terem personalidades completamente opostas: Margo, Laura e Kate.A protagonista deste livro é Margo, uma mulher deslumbrante, antiga modelo, que volta para casa após um escândalo que arruinou a sua carreira. Margo conhece Josh desde que se [...]

    15. Esta bien, solo bien no es algo nuevo para nada más bien es un libro con una trama común que ya hemos leído muchas veces en libros de NR.La historia comienza con la trágica historia de Seraphina una joven que pierde al amor de su vida en la guerra y como no quiere vivir sin él, junta todo el dinero que habían guardado para comenzar su vida lejos de su España y lo entierra para que no lo encuentren en los saqueos y luego se lanza desde un acantilado o risco no sin antes dejar una “maldic [...]

    16. I loved this series and honestly point to this towards those who love Roberts who want to know where she gets up her male and female avatars in her later works. Also most of her plots in her later trilogies are based on similar set-ups with the males and females too. That said, I always get a kick out of the Dream trilogy.I only re-read this first book because I honestly was so busy with a huge amount of other books that I just didn’t have the time to break away and get embroiled in this world [...]

    17. After ten years of modeling success, Margo Sullivan found herself in the middle of a career ending scandal and drug charges that she had no connection or knowledge of. The type of person Margo was, she went home to Monterey California. The Templeton house had always been her home, her mum was the housekeeper, Laura Templeton and Kate Powell her best friends now with the world talking about her the only place to run and hide was the Templeton house. The big brother figure of the family, Josh Temp [...]

    19. Model, Margo Sullivan, is trying to patch her life back together after her career is shattered by a dirty scandal. She heads back home to heal her wounds and to help out an old friend going through an emotionally trying time and falls in love with the friend's brother, an old childhood crush, Josh now a rich playboy and sometimes attorney.This was the first book by Nora Roberts that I could easily put down. Her beautiful knack for description was there as was her easily readable style but I didn [...]

    20. Why I read this book: I picked up this book because the cover caught my eye. I have also read a couple of other books by this author and have really enjoyed them.What I did like: I liked the theme behind this book. Once again we have a series of book by Nora the centers around the close friendship of three friends and we one friend that is the main character in this story, which I enjoy. What I didn't like: I did not like the way that the main character Margo was such a "flighty" person. It seem [...]

    21. This book has a lot to like. The characters are very different and pretty well developed. The setting is one of my favorite places. The main character is flawed and stupid, but changes as she grows up. The relationship between Margo and Josh is believable. That said, I'm highly dissatisfied with the writing style. In addition to far too many short, snippy sentences that don't flow, the sudden change in points of view is jarring. One moment we are seeing events through Margo's eyes, and the next, [...]

    22. The book was okay. I especially liked the strong friendship between the three women and how they and their parents form an unusual, but close family.I had some problems with Margo and Josh. Both are likeable protagonists - but only most of the time. Of course that they have major flaws makes them good, more complex characters, but I couldn't get Margo and her decisions. She's a nice, loyal person, but sometimes I just wanted to shake her till she'd see sense. And Josh well, I didn't like how oft [...]

    23. I absolutely loved the book and most of all Margo (the main character). After reading just a few pages, I realised that I’ve already developed a bond with her and the other 2 female leads (Laura and Kate), which will lead me effortlessly and happily through the rest of the series.Daring To Dream is about Margo’s journey, going though life-changing ups and downs and how she emerges out of everything stronger and more confident than ever. She takes life head-on and faces the worst situations w [...]

    24. I like most of Nora Roberts' trilogies. They're fun, entertaining, and romantic. This is probably the 2nd trilogy of hers I'd ever read and it stands up fairly well on re-reads.Margo has a lot of growing to do. But, while at times she can seem incredibly selfish her loyalty - absolutely and unwavering - is what drew me to her character. And I liked how she took responsibility for her screw-ups and did what everything she could to make something out of the ashes of her life.Josh was solid and ste [...]

    25. Set in Monterey, California, this first novel in the Dream trilogy features Margo Sullivan, the feisty and beautiful daughter of a wealthy family's housekeeper. She's been offered the same privileges as the Templeton children, but Margo resents handouts. She feels she has much to prove to herself, her surrogate family, and her mother. Margo dreams big--she wants wealth, fame, and success--but she doesn't want anyone else's help. Her plan is to go as far away from home as possible, so she starts [...]

    26. This book is magnificent. I found myself so engAGED in the story. I am just amazed at how Nora Roberts can make you feel. The romantic scenes with Margo and Josh were so powerful. The passion, desire and love between the two of them was so strong. You could only wish you had that type of love in a lifetime. Bravo Nora you are magnificent.Feel free to join my book group on Facebook (Romance Novel Junkies) and fan page ( Romance Novel Junkies Book Reviews). We have over 500 members, which includes [...]

    27. An introduction to the family of Templeton House, with the focus on Margo, the daughter of a maid who always wanted more from her life, and Josh Templeton, the heir of the family.I did not particularly like Margo and couldn't really relate to her and so I wasn't all that invested in her story. Both she and Josh have their flaws and make some bad decisions, but they seem to work as a couple and it was nice seeing them get their happy-ever-after.I am curious about Laura and Kate and will probably [...]

    28. Foi o primeiro livro da Nora Roberts e do qual adorei ler e que fiquei viciada nas triologias e não só desta mesma autora. Adoro tudo o que seja romance e este não foi excepção. Margo é uma mulher bastante carismática e bem sucedida, como modelo mas sempre quis conquistar o amor e a aceitação da sua mãe, até que tem um revés na sua carreira e acaba por procurar o refúgio no meio da sua família e começa a ver o que é realmente mais importante na sua vida. Adorei!!!aviciadadoslivro [...]

    29. Deel een van een trilogie. Margo, dochter van een huishoudster, wil steeds meer. Ze weet dat ze mooi is en gaat haar toekomst dan ook gaan zoeken in rijkdom en beroemd zijn. Ze had alles om gelukkig te zijn tot ze alles kwijt raakt. Met niks keert ze terug naar haar thuisbasis en probeert ze alles op een rijtje te zetten en na te denken wie ze is, wil zijn en wat ze gaat doen. Mooi romantisch verhaal. Soms wat te langdradig voor mij.

    30. Nora Robert's.I so enjoy here books, every one I've listened to has such good dialogue, makes me laugh out loud and then brings me to tears. I love the characters and am always sad when the books come to an end and then the series comes to an end. Luckily she has written so many series I still have many to go. It must be a stage I'm going through that these books are really about as deep as I want to get.
