    • Jude Deveraux

      Jude Gilliam was born September 20, 1947 in Fairdale, Kentucky She has a large extended family and is the elder sister of four brothers She attended Murray State University and received a degree in Art In 1967, Jude married and took her husband s surname of White, but four years later they divorced For years, she worked as 5th grade teacher.She began writing in 1976, and published her first book, The Enchanted Land 1977 under the name Jude Deveraux Following the publication of her first novel, she resigned her teaching position Now, she is the author of 31 New York Times bestsellers Jude won readers hearts with the epic Velvet series, which revolves around the lives of the Montgomery family s irresistible men Jude s early books are set largely in 15th and 16th century England in them her fierce, impassioned protagonists find themselves in the midst of blood feuds and wars Her heroines are equally scrappy medieval Scarlett O Haras who often have a low regard for the men who eventually win them over They re fighters, certainly, but they re also beauties who are preoccupied with survival and family preservation Jude has also stepped outside her milieu, with mixed results Her James River trilogy River Lady, Lost Lady, and Counterfeit Lady is set mostly in post Revolution America the popular, softer edged Twin of Fire Twin of Ice moves to 19th century Colorado and introduces another hunky man clan, the Taggerts.Deveraux manages to evoke a strong and convincing atmosphere for each of her books, but her dialogue and characters are as familiar as a modern day soap opera s Historicals seem to be all I m capable of, Jude once said in an interview, referring to a now out of print attempt at contemporary fiction, 1982 s Casa Grande I don t want to write family sagas or occult books, and I have no intention of again trying to ruin the contemporary market Still, Jude did later attempt modern day romances, such as the lighthearted High Tide her first murder caper , the contemporary female friendship story The Summerhouse, and the time traveling Knight in Shining Armor In fact, with 2002 s The Mulberry Tree, Deveraux seems to be getting comfortable setting stories in the present, which is a good thing, since the fans she won with her historical books are eager to follow her into the future.Jude married Claude Montassir, with whom she had a son, Sam Alexander Montassir, in 1997 They eventually divorced On Oct 6th, 2005, Sam died at the age of eight in a motorcycle accident Jude has lived in several countries and all over the United States She currently lives in Charlotte, North Carolina and has an additional home in the medieval city of Badolato, Italy.

    • 4.5 Epic Historical Stars I really really liked this last instalment in the Velvet Saga by Jude Deveraux I may have not loved it, but it was a worthy ending to a series of books I first read in high school and revisited so many years later with high hopes I m using this review to review the series as a whole, because with these books, if you liked one you will probably like them all If you hated the first one then the rest will probably not be your cup of tea, even if the heroes do improve from [...]

    • Kinda OT but I m beginning to wonder if I don t automatically give an extra star to anything audio if the narrator is halfway decent Am I that lazy that the idea of not turning a page gains an entire star Oh wellThis is the grand finale of the Velvet saga The h, Elizabeth Chatworth, is the sister of the series villain, Roger Chatworth She s paired up with the youngest Montgomery brother, Miles Elizabeth is one of my favorite heroines of the series She s pretty mature for 18 and doesn t do too ma [...]

    • I m so wishy washy with books What I will accept from one book, I can t tolerate from another Most of this has to do with the author s presentation and skill I usually like this author Some of the first romance books I read were by Jude Deveraux, but I wasn t and am still not fond of this book The hero has bastards running around but that s okay because there are only four and the hero has them in his custody Yeahwould it kill you to be a little discreet about where you spread all that magic lo [...]

    • You know, I don t normally do this Giving a book one star says a lot for me and I guess I am making a statement On page 19 of this book it reads I will grow so dirty I will look like a Nubian slave and my hair will crawl with lice Pretty unacceptable that 1 author wrote this line and 2 Editor didn t get it out and 3 Still in a book after original print date of 1983.I wanted something to make me forget issues This certainly didn t do it and really, I m soured on the author What I also find discou [...]

    • 2.5 5 I m relieved Jude Deveraux provided us with a book that was short, straight to the point, and we get introduce to the characters right away However, as much as I wanted to like this book, it just wasn t one of Deveraux s finest work I couldn t connect with the H h Their personalities weren t consistent.For a girl who s terrified of being touched by men, Elizabeth really didn t put up a fight when Miles laid his hands on her And her behavior when she tried to distract the old man from looki [...]

    • Elizabeths parents died when she was very young so her older brother raised her When she was old enough he started to lend her to whichever one of his friends gave the highest bid She had to learn how to defend herself against these barbarians, because of this, she made a vow to herself to never trust men and to hate all menars later she is taken captive and given to Lord Miles Montgomery, he is known as the local playboy who rumor has it he has fathered many bastards He finds Elizabeth very int [...]

    • I hated this when I read this because the hero Miles had a lot of bastard kids with lord knows how many peasant women That was just so effing yucky That just ruined the romance for me I m sorry but a group of bastard kids does not equal romance for me I enjoyed the novel Highland Velvet, in this series but when I had read that the heroine in Velvet Song was plain and that the hero was short I didn t bother to read that one.

    • After reading Raine s story and being disappointed, I didn t hold much hope for this final installment Miles was actually the mysterious one of the Montgomery brothers All we knew was that he was a womanizer, couldn t stand to see a woman wronged, and had a million bastards However, I actually really liked the hero in this story We discover about him, and that he actually really loved the women who bore him children It just didn t work out, but he still took responsibility for his kids I loved [...]

    • I haven t read a Montgomery book for years until this The story was just okay, but the way Jude put the Montgomerys together made the entire novel fun It s like catching up with old friends LolAnyway, Jude Deveraux remains to be one of my favorite historical romance authors of all time I d love to read about the story of that present generation Montgomery girl and Taggart guy she mentioned in the epilogue, but I still haven t figured out which book that is yet Help please Haha

    • This is the second worst thing I ve read from Devereaux I had hoped that the Lady Trilogy was only a fluke, but now I m suddenly regretting having bought so many of her books I ve never had buyer s remorse over literature before So unfortunate.

    • The ending seemed so rushed compared to everything else And Elizabeth and Miles Baby was never mentioned again after their return from France I have liked Deveraux s books in the past but this one just really missed the mark There was nothing really great about it.

    • I think this book was great I like how Miles understood what Elizabeth was going through and how he handled every situation with caution but at the same time in a flirty way I m glad that the feud between the two families ended in a proper and partly civil way Haha Everyone was a given a chance to change and prove themselves I love it because all of them were featured here and the wives combined forces was amazing leaving their husbands fearful of them Nice way of ending the quadrilogy series o [...]

    • I first read this book in high school and loved it then I ve kept my paperback copy through many moves through many states, but it has stayed with me So I decided to reread it and see if I still enjoyed it as much as I did when I was in my teens.The short answer yes I must identify subconsciously with Elizabeth at some level, because I just really like this book Or maybe I have a huge crush on Miles I don t know All I know is that I remembered most of the plot, and I still couldn t put the book [...]

    • I first read this book in my teens so I was curious what I would think about it now, after years and years D of experience and romance novels under the belt I confess I liked it quite a lot My main problem with it was that at about the 70% mark, the plot turned a bit ridiculous, in my opinion I would have been than happy for the storyline to continue in the serious manner it was written before, without the overly dramatic actions of the last part But overall, Miles and Elizabeth were a cute cou [...]

    • Short Review Book started great, Elizabeth was a lot likeable than Bronwyn, although they both shared an intense dislike hatred for what would end up being their partners My bone to pick is how Roger, who has undoubtedly been a villain, got a happy ending There was no major challenge for him, in my opinion, that he overcame, and so, could justify him finding true love It felt very inorganic and left a sour taste in my mouth Otherwise, great end to the series

    • I found this series by accident and was happy I did.I was sick for the whole week between Christmas and New Year I downloaded all four of the books and listen to them as I lounged in my sick bed.I enjoyed all of them pretty well They are not masterpieces, but fun and easy to listen to.The last one is the one with the most fluff, but they kept me sane as I sniffled and coughed.If you like historical romances, you ll like these.

    • Ultimo libro de la saga Audaz de Deveraux, que trata de 4 hermanos en la antigua Inglaterra y de c mo cada uno de ellos obtuvo una esposa Esta ltima historia rom ntica comienza en el libro anterior como ya hab a venido haciendo la autora en toda la saga Elizabeth es la cuarta y la menor de los hermanos Chatworth, aquella familia con la que se casa Alice y que en el segundo libro terminan raptando a Bronwyn la esposa de Stephen y a la hermana Montgomery, misma que acaba suicidandose despu s despu [...]

    • This is the 4th and final book in the Velvet Series but not in the Montgomery family of books It s a great story and the ending gives you a peek at where everyone finally ends up As well as leaving you wishing to follow the family to present day These stories were all written in the 1980s, and I read them the first time in the 90s,and have since reread them many times This recent time I wondered if they d hold up against all the others historical romances I ve read since reading them the first t [...]

    • I should ve read this last, but I read it after Highland Velvet and got a little summary of What Happened to Everybody Based on my experience reading historical romance with extremely rakish characters, the hero is always different from what he presents on the outside This one is no different While I prefer rakes the least, Ms Deveraux really built Miles s character, introduced him in a new light.He has bastards and he loves them, knows their names, and is not ashamed of admitting how they came [...]

    • 5 times a thousand stars WOW WOW WOW I had read this whole series a long time ago and I honestly don t remember loving this book soooooo much I am not re reading them in order I have read 1 Gavin , 3 Raine and lastly 4 Miles I do plan to read 2 Stephen ASAP I read the whole book in about 24 hours I work, have 3 children and am currently planning 2 birthday parties, so that is really saying something VERY fast read.Miles the youngest of the Montgomery brothers has received a gift, his enemy She c [...]

    • I don t want the adventure of the four Montgomery brothers to end They have been through many tragedies, dangerous escapades and it was while I was reading the Velvet Series that I felt I was with them This is definitely a great factor to tell everyone how great and how SUBLIME the series really is The story had made me give every emotion that there is in the world I have been angered by the Montgomery s arrogance, pride, great impatience, and hardheadedness I had cried so many times because of [...]

    • At long last read finished this book this series so sad when I get to the ending of a good book, let alone a series of books And the way theses book are written there is continuity, the time line also is similar or overlaps so it really feels like 1 big book that s been divided into 4 Loved every moment, sentence all the Characters the major and minor ones But the ending felt a bit rushed, as in not only was Roger Chatworth forgiven in what seemed a blink of an eye but, he went from being the ba [...]

    • She came to him as a precious gift, a naked angel rolled in a rug Once he gazed into her green eyes, saw her tangle of honey blonde hair, he was undone with passion Elizabeth would never surrender He was a hated Montgomery she was a Chatworth and the blood war between their families raged on, a wildfire of rape, murder, and betrayal Elizabeth vowed to fight the handsome lord, to resist the burning desire in his eyes no matter how great the temptation.The hero, Miles, was one of my favorite heroe [...]

    • What can I say about the 4th book It was really lovely Although, I ve started with the Velvet Song then proceeded with the Velvet Angel, I could say that I already love the Saga Judith and Gavin s story was intriguing as much as Bronwyn and Stephen s and I regretted not reading their stories first Out of the four brothers, I must say that I love Miles the best He loves like a child, pure and whole I also love his protectiveness towards women It s no wonder that women flock by his side I only hop [...]

    • Although I liked Miles in the previous books, I did not really like this story Elizabeth was kidnapped and gifted to him, so she was his Did like that Elizabeth hated men because of the abuse of her brother, and Miles did realize this and was patient, but his goal was to bed her Of course they fell in love and then he thought she betrayed him, so he ignored her and, just as his brothers did, did not seek her out after the birth of their child There was an epilogue that summed up the tale, which [...]

    • ah the last of the velvet series.Okay I will say this, Jude Deveraux was the first romance author I ever read The velvet series being the first books by her I really like Elizabeth s attitude She speaks her mind and does not give a dang what other people think or how they look at her I also love how her potty mouth doesn t fit her sweet little angelic looks.I had a lot of fun laughing at how people reacted when she let torrents of swears escape her little mouth Also I like how she reacts to mile [...]
