Overview

New York Times bestselling author Jude Deveraux returns to the magnificent, sunny island in For All Time, the second novel in her Nantucket Brides trilogy—this time featuring the next generation of her beloved family of Montgomery-Taggerts.
 
The wedding of Alix Madsen and Jared Montgomery is a glorious affair at an elegant little chapel in the woods, followed by dinner and dancing, all while moonlight blankets the festivities in a romantic glow. While most guests are fixed on the happy couple, Jared’s cousin Graydon can’t look away from a bridesmaid, Toby Wyndam. It’s not just her quiet beauty that enthralls him or the way she makes him laugh. Toby possesses the truly remarkable ability of being able to distinguish Graydon from his identical twin brother, Rory. According to family legend, such a gift marks her as Graydon’s True Love.
 
But Graydon knows there is no possible way that they can ever be together, for he is heir to the Lanconian throne and is to marry a noble woman who has been chosen for him. Yet, intrigued by Toby, he asks her to help him hide on Nantucket for a week away from regal responsibilities. In exchange, he’ll assist her with planning acclaimed novelist Victoria Madsen’s lavish wedding. Since they both know their union is impossible, the pair promises that they will never be more than just friends.
 
But there’s more going on between Graydon and Toby than her unique power to tell him apart from his twin. At work are forces beyond their control, which are ruled by time itself. Combine that with the magical island of Nantucket, and a seductive spell is cast over Graydon and Toby. If they are to be together, they must change what once was, as well as what will be.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

As readers of Jude Deveraux's True Love know, Alix Madsen and Jared Montgomery are about to tie a joyous knot for all times. At least one member of the wedding party, however, has his mind darting in other directions: Jared's cousin Graydon Montgomery finds himself smitten by pretty bridesmaid Toby Wyndam. This being a heart-catching romance, there is of course one giant-sized obstacle: As heir to the Lanconian throne, he is expected to marry a woman of noble origins. Resigned to his royal fate, he nevertheless devises a chaste vacation with Toby and on that trip, perhaps not surprisingly, everything changes. A sweet romance with some very clever twists.

Publishers Weekly
05/05/2014
Deveraux’s pleasant second Nantucket Brides novel picks up where True Love left off: with Toby Wyndam preparing her friend Lexie’s perfect wedding. Toby doesn’t have time to play games with Graydon Montgomery, the groom’s cousin, who enjoys swapping places with his fun-loving identical twin brother, Rory. When Toby has no trouble telling the two apart, Graydon, the heir to the throne of fictional Lanconia, speculates that he and Toby are soul mates who will always recognize each other. Deciding a vacation from princely duties is due, Graydon stays in Nantucket to get to know Toby—platonically, since they both know he’s slated for a political marriage at home. Toby vows to keep her heart free, but circumstances and feelings change when they realize their souls may be linked now and in generations past. This story of commoner and king would be as entertaining without the paranormal elements, but the soul mate twist adds a bit of depth. (July)

In the second contemporary romance in her "Nantucket Brides" trilogy, Deveraux—the 2013 Romantic Times Pioneer Award winner for her lifetime of devotion to the genre—offers a charming tale of improbable romance. When Toby meets Graydon Montgomery, heir to the Lanconian throne, she can distinguish him from his twin, Rory—something no one else can do. According to legend, that means she is his true love. Alas, Graydon is unhappily set to marry an eligible royal. Will love and legend or duty win out?
Kirkus Reviews
2014-05-21
The second novel in the best-selling author’s Nantucket Brides trilogy doubles up on romance with twin brothers and reincarnated lovers.Prince Graydon Montgomery is attending his cousin’s wedding on Nantucket when Toby Wyndam catches him impersonating his twin brother. The fact that Toby is the only person who can distinguish the heir to the Lanconian throne from his self-indulgent sibling hearkens back to an old family legend saying that's the way to recognize true love. Though Graydon is as gentle and humble as a modern-day royal can be (he cooks, drives and wears T-shirts), his hand has already been promised to Lady Danna Hexonbath, whom his brother secretly loves. So Graydon contrives to stay with Toby on Nantucket while she organizes a decadent wedding for a best-selling author—and sends his brother to Lanconia in his place to give himself a little freedom before his engagement party. When Graydon’s sword-wielding entourage arrives to keep him in check, the delightfully stoic bodyguards also give Toby a crash course onLanconian customs, from which kinds of cheese they prefer to their attitudes about social class. Deveraux’s fictitious country ingeniously keeps her prince out of the public eye while giving him a sense of duty that stops him from getting with the times and marrying a commoner. Toby, who's still a virgin, also holds on to antiquated ideals to avoid getting her heart broken in a doomed relationship. Little do the lovers know that their future happiness depends on time traveling to Regency-era Nantucket to reunite a couple separated by similar circumstances. If only the paranormal element of the plot had been introduced sooner; Toby’s research into her town’s history gives her and Graydon a mystery to solve while they resist each other’s charms and inspires her plan for a beautiful Regency-themed wedding complete with empire-waist gowns and tailcoats.This charming sequel should be read in sequence to clarify the circumstances that bring Graydon and Toby together, but the lovers from different worlds are soon caught in an engrossing period romance that transcends time.

Jude Deveraux was born in Fairdale, Kentucky, the eldest of a family of three girls and one boy.

    I was excited to see the second book in the Nantucket Brides Tri

    I was excited to see the second book in the Nantucket Brides Trilogy by Jude Deveraux become available on Netgalley.  I have been a huge fan ever since I read Black Lyon, way, way, way back in the early 80's. After reading the first book in the trilogy, True Love, I was thrilled when I was approved to read this one as well. 

    This book picks up from the end of book 1.  Alix and Jared have just married and everyone is ready to enjoy the wedding party.  Graydon, cousin of Jared and the Crown Prince of Lanconia had partnered Toby, reluctant wedding planner and bridesmaid, down the aisle. When he found out that she had met his identical twin brother the night before and could tell the two of them apart, something almost no one could do, he decides to spend some time with her to find out if the family legend holds any truth: You marry the one who can tell the twins apart.  In order to spend some time with Toby, Graydon demands Rory, his twin, switch places with him.  With some smooth talking and adroit maneuvering by Rory, Graydon gets the chance to spend the coming week on Nantucket with Toby. 

    And so the matchmaking begins.  Alix's mother Victoria gets in on the act by insisting that since Toby did such an excellent job on Alix's wedding, that Toby should do Victoria's as well and even arranges for Toby to have time off so that she can plan the wedding and spend it with Graydon, of course. It's not long before they are spending all of their time together.  As they draw closer to each other, they also stumble upon the story of Garrett and Tabby and their tragic romance. Is history doomed to repeat itself, or can they create a new history and future?

    I quite enjoyed the paranormal aspects to the book.  True Love dealt with the ghost of Caleb, while this book involves time travel. I was also thrilled to see Lanconia show back up.  Not only is Graydon the grandson of J.T. and Aria from The Princess, but he references his ancestors, Rowan and Jura from The Maiden. It was fun to get a chance to link back to the earlier books. This was another 5 star read.

    It felt so good to be reading a book by Jude again. I like this

    It felt so good to be reading a book by Jude again. I like this series set on Nantucket. I've never been but it does sound lovely. Jude has another winner with this story and characters. Poor Toby, she is in charge of Jared and Alix's wedding. She has finished and is mad at the one relative who is just a playboy. This is when she finds out he is covering for his twin. She knows he isn't the other brother and also learns that it is True Love if you can tell the twins in this family apart. But this twin is the heir to a Kingdom. There is lots of family here and as it is an old heritage there are lots of ghosts around. The dream scenes were gut wrenchers but the "A Knight in Shining Armor" put a dash of fun info the story. I hope you pick this book. I'm sure you will like it!

    Not my fav

    I think this would have been much better if there was more dialog between Toby and Gray. There was a lot of thoughts about how they felt or thoughts about what they talked about but you never got to experiance the conversations so the book lost feeling for me.

    Once again, Jude Devereaux has done it again. The love story of Toby and Graydon was a real page turner. For those of you that are true JD fans, you will love the way other stories and characters are pulled into this story. Thanks again Jude, keep up the good work.
