Overview

Holly by Jude Deveraux

Jude Deveraux, the dazzling New York Times bestselling author of Wild Orchids and Forever and Always delivers a delightful and passionate yuletide tale sure to become a classic this and every holiday season.
Hollander "Holly" Latham can't believe her good fortune. After endless calls, letters, emails, and promises, she's finally persuaded her parents to buy Spring Hill Plantation just outside beautiful, historic Edenton in eastern North Carolina -- and strategically located near Belle Chere, the purest, most untouched plantation site in America.
At the tender age of thirteen, Holly fell in love with Lorrie Beaumont, who inherited the Revolutionary-period estate when his heiress mother died during childbirth. Though more than a decade has passed since Holly last locked eyes with her childhood love, the passion she felt in her young heart has never come close to extinguishing -- that is, until charming, ruggedly handsome Nick Taggert unexpectedly waltzes into her life and treats her to an unforgettable weekend of laughter and intense passion.
Despite Holly's undeniable attraction to this dazzling stranger, she knows he's not marriage material. What Holly doesn't know is that Nick Taggert is actually Dr. Nicholas Taggert. Having been with more than his share of women only interested in money and pedigree, Nick decides to test Holly and conceal his more refined qualities. Will Holly be seduced by Lorrie's wealth and privilege, or will she choose the simple gift of love that Nick has offered her? The answer is unveiled on a starry Christmas night, when passion, hate, and greed collide to reveal bitter truths that will forever change the course of Holly's charmed life.
With Holly, Jude Deveraux once again uses her golden touch to conjure up a tale full of dazzling intrigue and inspiring romance. It is a story for all seasons and one to remember always.

Holly is one of my favorites from this author. It was intriguing and written smoothly from start to finish. I've read all of Jude Deveraux's books and she hasn't let me down once.

I adored this book. I love the whole Taggart series so far and I'm not sure whether I love Nick from this story or Mike from Sweet Liar more.

I was initially going to put a 2 star, but I decided to go with three. I started reading this book yesterday, and I loved it! I would have given it FIVE STARS!!! I loved reading about Holly, Lorrie, and Nick. However, from the middle  to the end, I had to keep pushing in order to finish this book. It was just all kinds of historical stories, and stories about the ancestors of Lorrie and the house. I was very uninteresting to me. I was bored. At first, there were quite a few sex scenes, but from the middle to the end, the phrase "They made love..." was everywhere. They made love on the floor. They made love on the couch. They made love in the second pit. They made love... was repeated COUNTLESS times!!! I did adore the parts, where Holly would just run to Nick, and the would just embrace and "make love" because of the irresistible desire they had for each other. If you are into those strange, historical, ancestor stories, you'll love this book! If you can also get over the "they made love" being said 1000 times, you'll love this book! ENJOY READING!!! I did quite like the beginning though :)

Charming characters, adventure and intrigue, a great and discriptive background, humor, love, sex... everything a girl or guy needs to get in the mood. A wonderful story I'll be reading again and again. A great gift for anyone who's a romantic at heart. WONDERFUL!!!

If you are interested in architecture pick this one, otherwise do not waste your money. Not a book to keep and reread. Borrow from your library and judge for yourself.

I don't usually read 'romance novels' and I found this very enjoyable. In fact, I couldn't put it down! I would reccommend.

This was a good story. I enjoyed the fact they both wanted someone that loved them for them and not their money.... does it work out.... I am not telling, but it is a great story. My favorite is 'The Mulberry Tree' it is FANTASTIC.

This was my favorite book so far. Loved the characters. Couldn't put it down! I would love to read a sequel to this story to see what happens to Nick and Holly and if they restore Belle Chere.

I was given this book for Christmas. I loved this book. I could not put it down. This is the first book I read in one day. I loved the way she did with every character every setting every mood she put in this book. This is her best book that Jude has ever written.

I read this one in one sitting. It's been a long while since that happened. Ms. Deveraux gets back into 'romance' with Holly. Nick is and awesome 'hero' and Holly is a terrific leading lady. Not to give much more away,,, but the underlying 'plot' was a good one, too... And it was so great hearing and 'seeing' the Taggerts and Montgomery names again! Could have been longer, but I always think that of books I so enjoy

I love how she drops in lttle bits on characters from other books. Is there a hint on a future book with Adam and Darcy? The only issue I have is that its too short. Would love to have more to read.

A quick entertaining read. I finished within a few hours. I enjoyed the sexy characters and liked the mystery portion of the plot. The writing could be improved a little. I thought some scenes needed a better transition. I liked the book and would be interested in reading similar stories.
