Jude Deveraux

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.

Good To Know

Deveraux began her career as a fifth-grade teacher.

    Can I have my money back?

    The plotline was ridiculous! The hero was annoying, rude, and arrogant and the heroine pathetic. The Princess evidentally was so used to being served and dressed that she was rendered incabable of undressing herself. Not even able to pull a nightgown over her head. Wish I had those few hours back.

    FANTASTIC

    I loved this book!! Finished it in two days. I am a long time fan of Deveraux and have read most all of her books. This is my 2nd favorite, my favorite being "Knight in Shining Armor". I think this was written before "Knight" but am not sure. The story was very good and flowed well--kept my interest from beginning to end. The characters were believeable and it led up to a really good ending. I would recommend this book to anyone.

    Unforgettable!

    I have been in love with J.T. since the original publication. Aria is
    still one of my favorite heroine's. Jude's novels need to be produced into movies and I could die a happy woman.

    A Great read but Ending Needs Revision...

    Once again, here's another Judeveraux book you wouldn't want to miss. This book is sharp and fast-moving. Filled with Lovable characters, exciting and not too heavy (which I prefer) action-mystery twists. Lots of laugh out-loud, I-can't-believe-she-did-that scenes and oh so plenty of heart warming moments. This is also different than my usual England-Scotland settings but a welcome and a refreshing change at that. Aria is definitely one heroine you couldn't forget so easily. A beautiful spoiled, stiff-by-the-rules Lanconian Princess and a daring, happy-go-lucky American wife all roll into one. One minute she is frustratingly pulling your hair then next thing you know, she'll make u laugh and love her at the same time. I truly love her character. I enjoyed reading about her transformation, her realization to her new found identity and happiness yet I also sigh for her confusions. My other favorites were Aria's initial reaction to the Americans and how they live, how they talked and even how they eat. Oh my, that sure was a riot! Another unforgettable part is the 'NEW Aria's' heart warming interaction with her people. Meanwhile, our hero, J.T-Jarl Tynan (love that name) is an ever so impressive Montgomery. I've always been interested in Jude Deveraux's Montgomery-Taggert links eversince the Velvet Series, which is one of my favorite series books, and reading more of this lineage here in PRINCESS sure was a wonderful deja vu connection. Anyway, J.T is perhaps a man of every woman's dream. He is not only rich, smart, handsome, disciplined and honorable but he is also patient (to the extent), caring, humble and oh so VERY American. Ohhh, I sure love the way he talks, even the way he moves and the way he does things. American, Indeed! Now, Aria and JT---Thrown in together however, we find the most opposite yet most lovable couple in the making. You don't know who you'll root for whenever they have a falling out as both have their own sets of reason and different upbringing. Here's a proof of 'OPPOSITE attracts'... yet in the end, they benefitted each other and needed one another. Now, that is what I call LOVE. Accept and love that person despite the hundreds of differences and flaws. Truly heart warming! My main complain is the very inept ending. The conclusion isn't to my liking at all. I mean, Aria and JT's story was so full of love and passion to end so abruptly like that. They deserve a more fulfilling finale with passionate confessions and profoundness. I was expecting more... truly! I was so disappointed, I kept flipping the pages and even counted the pages to make sure the book I bought was complete. I thought maybe a page or two was missing! Ugh, No Epilogue at all too! *Sigh* An Epilogue would have made up for that quick ending. Perhaps Ms. Deveraux would take time to revise this book? Oh well, nevertheless, I rated this book a four stars because it is indeed an entertaining read. If the ending was satisfying, this book would have been a fiver. That's only my opinion, of course. I suggest you read this one and form your own.

    This book was so awesome

    I love Jude Deveraux. Between her and Judith McNaught, I could read forever.I've read alot of her books, and I treasure each one. They're so good !!!!!! I love reading about the special relationships, and the jealousy and love. Her books are so heartwarming, lovable, and realistic. This one was especially a winner. I would name every book of hers five stars, or even ten. Peace Out
