Meet the Author

Jude Deveraux is the author of more than forty New York Times bestsellers, including Moonlight in the Morning, The Scent of Jasmine, Scarlet Nights, Days of Gold, Lavender Morning, Return to Summerhouse, and Secrets. To date, there are more than sixty million copies of her books in print worldwide. To learn more, visit JudeDeveraux.com.

Biography

Jude Deveraux was born in Fairdale, Kentucky, the eldest of a family of three girls and one boy. After earning a degree in art from Murray State University and studying teaching at the University of New Mexico, she taught fifth grade in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She left when her first book, The Land of Enchantment, was accepted for publication by Avon books.

Jude's first books were historical, chiefly featuring the Montgomery and Taggert families. Stories of the lives and loves of these families spanned over several centuries in the US and England. They are filled with details of the history and culture of the time periods and settings of her novels. Her more recent series of books focuses on the McTern family and its descendants. The novels are set in the fictional town of Edilean, Virginia, and go from when the family arrived in America to contemporary time.

Jude's exhaustive research on every aspect of her books has made for a rich and detailed background for each of her novels. Her stories are adventurous, funny, and at times heartwarming. Jude has had over thirty books on the New York Times Bestsellers List, over 60 million copies in print, and has been translated into 18 languages.

Jude has lived in England and Egypt as well as in several American states, and she has traveled around the world. She likes to read nonfiction and murder mysteries, work in her garden, and in boxing class, she enjoys showing much younger males that she can throw a mean right cross.

    Loved it!!

    Loved all three books of the series....I really enjoy the books she writes in a series. Wish one could go on forever! It's always a disappointment when the series ends.

    Better the second time

    I read this book ages ago and never forgot it. Recently I wondered about the old book but I didn't know the name ir author. So I dug into my nook and started searching. Thank goodness jude has a familiar way to show her name. I started with this one and am now on my fourth book. I love them even more now.

    Wanted to like it but...

    The premise for this book is what caught my attention but the story itself disappointed, especially as a huge J. Deveraux fan. I liked Nicole's character and the contrasting view of the very bloody French revolution with 18th century revolutionary America and, because of it, I think this story could have been something so much more... but the character development and the relationship development was uneven AND voluminous... sometimes less is more.

    NOT SO FAST

    I know the ending is a little odd- but there are follow up books to this that fill in everything. This is just part of things, please look more into the books before judging too harshly.

    horrible

    It really started out as a great read, but Nicole's increasing insistence on giving Clayton another chance after he obviously doesn't appreciate her is frustrating. I just wanted to wring Nicole's neck and wished Clayton ended up with the fat ho in the end for his own good. And the ending. What in the world was that??? I had to check the back of the book a couple of times to make sure that it really was the end. Who ends a book with no sequel on a cliffhanger???

    Not what I was expecting from a great author!

    I was excited to have purchase this book since I love the author and the way she writes. Unfortunately, this was a disappointment. In the beginning, it seems like they will be together but the main character (Nicole) is rather stupid and naive and that becomes frustrating! The husband (Clayton Armstrong) seems like he's not really in the picture towards the middle of the story. The ending was terrible. I was confused and thought there was more to it, but no it just leaves you hanging! Didn't enjoy it as I thought I would.
