    About "Jude Deveraux"

    1. 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.

    1. Mr Darcy who Nicholas Stafford, Earl of Thornwyck is a knight in shining armor Literally.This book contains two of my favorite things time travel and dashing British lords A Knight in Shining Armor is both hilarious and tragic It s a really, really good book So why the three stars You know that feeling when you read a book and you can t stop thinking about it Well, that didn t happen to me I wanted to give this book four stars so badly I had to force myself to click on the third star If you re n [...]


    2. Why a four star book and a wall banger Hmmuld it be the ending The book was great up until the last part where.SpoilersThe hero and heroine do not get together She travels back to her time while he spends the rest of his life alone She meets the hero s soul in another body on the plane home after she is sent to the present Supposedly, the hero s soul found hers Baloney Sorry, you cannot substitute another person for the actual hero Such a depressing and horrible ending Ugggghhh See Kiss of the H [...]


    3. This is the very first romance book, which made me smile, laugh and cry Read it three times and decided that I had to have it for myself So now, it is sitting very nicely in my book cabinet, beckoning me to read it again for I don t know how many times I must say, this is best book of all by Jude Deveraux About time travel romance, finding and recognizing true love even if its separated by decades of time So, you will get to read about Nicholas realising his true love in Douglass s modern time a [...]


    4. This is my all time favorite romance novel, which I ve read than once the last time being this past weekend Nicholas is a real live Knight in Shining Armor sent to comfort a heartbroken Douglass in 1988 Destined to be soul mates through all eternity, the two set out to clear Lord Nicholas name and right the wrongs done during his Elizabethan life Just as he gets used to the weird inventions and strangness of the twentieth century, they are whisked back through time to 1560 where Douglass gets t [...]


    5. In 1990 I was a senior in high school, and I was friends with my music teacher It was one of those odd things I never understood how it happened, though I think it started when the drama teacher cast me for the lead in Fiddler on the Roof but I couldn t sing That s a long, weird story Don t ask She was charged with fixing that minor detail, which led to a lot of before and after school private lessons At this point of my life things were starting to come seriously apart I d weathered some very p [...]


    6. I read it first when it came out back in the late 80 s and have re read it so many times with each read just as fantastic Its one of those books that impact you and stays with you forever Love or hate the ending it is a romance must read.


    7. I m not totally sure what to say about this one or how to rate it It is fair to say I enjoyed it despite the fact that it was riddled with flaws It was a fairly fun time travel romance that was just light enough in tone to be fun The story was fun Dougless Montgomery is abandoned by her wastrel boyfriend in a church in rural England after their holiday went bad and prays for a knight in shining armor to save her She gets that knight in the form of 15th century earl, Lord Nicholas Stafford Unfort [...]


    8. 4.5 STARSWhat a remarkably beautiful story I loved this, even despite the somewhat controversial ending, I really loved this When poor, down on her luck, Dougless Montgomery gets jilted by her boyfriend and left to fend for herself in rural England, at a church no less, she accidentally summons Nicholas Stafford, Earl of Thornwyck The fact that he happens to be a knight sent from sixteenth century England baffles the both of them She cried for a knight in shining armor, she prayed to be given a [...]


    9. I ve been told by just about every reader who s read this romance classic that it s a sad story and a very upsetting one at that because of the ending, well I have to strongly disagree It s exceptionally moving and my hat s off to the author for thinking out of the romance box for once That said, I love a good heart wrenching cry and a tragic story and I m not saying this one is or isn t because I really think it depends on what you expect out of a romance novel If you re on the side that says r [...]


    10. I first read this book in the 80 s and it became my most favorite book It captured my heart with the romantic story of Dougless Montgomery and Nicholas Stafford, the EArl of Thornwyck He was magnificent He had humor, curiosity and belief in the almost impossible truth This was my first Jude Deveraux book and I became obsessed with reading all of her books in an attempt to capture that feeling again This is a time travel book that touched my heart and made me believe too that there was someone ou [...]


    11. I shouldn t have read this But oh well you live and learn The writing was at times weird but overall good, but the story, the ending Horrible.That is NOT a happy end It s actually really sad and depressing view spoiler The main dude ends up living his whole life without her In love Not being able to be with her He dies alone when he is old That is not a f cking happy end no matter what b llshit she invents for the heroine in present time hide spoiler


    12. This is one of my all time favorites, no matter what genre of romance It has elements of historical, contemporary, time travel And the love story is romantic and heart breaking If you ve never read it do so, if you read it years ago read it again A true classic.


    13. I know what you re thinkinge book s title ALONE should have been my first red flag , but you would be wrong I actually read this because a neighbor had it and physically ran it over to me one day last summer I thought, Sure, I ll give it a go Luckily, she didn t take anything I thought about the book personally Phew Jude Deveraux is a famously popular writer, and since I am NOT about bashing the writer, I will only give my opinion based on her work Unfortunately, I have nothing positive to say a [...]


    14. I m rating this book 4.5 stars I really really liked this but not flat out loved I had 4 minor issues with the book My first issue was her name I mean no offence to Douglas s out there but it was hard for me to image a female love interest named that My second issue was her Ex Robert In the beginning of the book It was irrating how she let Robert treat her like shit Douglas also didn t believe Nickolas until have way through the book That he was from a different time Which was way too long And m [...]


    15. I LOVED this book I would have given it 5 stars, but the ending made me want to pull my hair out I can t really say without giving anything away Years ago when I first read it, I remember discussing it with a friend of mine and crying over how much I hated the ending She said that when she read it, she wanted to slather the book in gravy and feed it to her dog I thought that was the PERFECT way to describe how I felt after finishing this book HOWEVER, with that being said, I still highly recomm [...]


    16. Best historical romance book ever written A Knight in Shining Armor is a must read Imagine traveling back in time to the medieval ages to meet your soulmate


    17. I keep wavering between a 4 and a 5 for this book I literally couldn t put this book down When I was unable to read the book, I found myself thinking about what happened in the book only because I was going through withdrawal This love story was such a sweet one and funny at times I rarely find myself laughing out loud while reading a book Not in this case Some of the funniest scenes were when the heroine goes back in time She has to entertain Nicholas mother and she does so by singing televisio [...]


    18. The most frustrating heroine Ive ever had the displeasure of coming across for a while now.Her character was too niave and frustrating for most of the book to actually feel any pity for her.Two star for the orginality of the story line.Even Though that too it was a bit of a drag at times.




    19. Sometimes there s nothing better than to read a classic You know that feeling of comfort that I rarely find in new books, not sure why Maybe it s the style, or the way that back then authors had to make you feel with simple words, instead of trying to shock you into it I picked up A KNIGHT IN SHINING ARMOR on a whim, after I saw a top ten list somewhere on a blog Had I heard of the book before Yes Did I feel the immediate need to read it No, not really Did it help that it has a new sexy cover Ab [...]


    20. Having recently finished Diana Gabaldon s Outlander series, and Sara Donati s Wilderness books, I was in the mood for good historical fiction Fiction this is Historical sort of Good not by a long shot As my degree is in English literature, I appreciate good fiction This is poorly written, populated by caricatures rather than characters, in a style that can only be described as unsophisticated The heroine is shallow, the hero self absorbed, and the male antagonist laughable It is astonishing to [...]


    21. This is the ultimate time travel romance that rocked the publishing world back in 1989 It was fresh and unique because Jude brought her hero forward in time to the present day before sending her heroine back in time to search for him It was the first time I realized just how compelling a lovable loser heroine could be And I still smile when I think about Nicholas being introduced to the modern joys of the vacuum cleaner and can opener and get a catch in my throat when I think about the ending Ju [...]


    22. 5 5Qu pienso de esta lectura Bueno, desde el principio hace bastante tiempo que tengo este libro para leer No se que me llev tanto tiempo pero al fin lo le pero me encanto Ame a Nicholas Es perfecto Douglas es incre ble s lo que lloraba mucho en el correr del libro pero es entendible por lo que le sucedi Me gust como en la mitad del libro cambia totalmente la historia y justo yo quer a saber m s sobre la familia de Nicholas y Jude me pudo sacar esas dudas LLor , re y me emocione mucho con este l [...]


    23. There was quite a lot to sludge through in order to get to the romance in this 464 page novel that seemed like fiction than romance until the very end There was a heavy reincarnation theme that began showing itself in the characters that appeared in the beginning Robert, Gloria and carried into the second half of the story A Knight in Shining Armor takes place in England 1560 1988 and stars Nicholas Stafford as the hero and Dougless Montgomery as the heroine It begins in 1564 to find Nicholas 3 [...]


    24. This was recommended by a fellow reader in one of the groups I am in While I can clearly see why the book appeals to so many readers, it left me completely numb The best part of the book for me was the author s note I m not really sure why Jude Devereaux decided that she needed to add 50 pages to this updated version because the plot dragged for me.


    25. The first thing you need to know about this time travel romance is that the majority of it takes place in 1988 I didn t know that when I bought it But the 5 star ratings convinced me to buy it After reading the first 25 pages, I was back on looking at the reviews to see if I d missed something I did The low ratings tell a different story an annoying heroine, contrived plot developments, no happy ending, etc How, I asked myself, could all those 5 star raters be so wrong So, I decided to be fair a [...]


    26. Hoy termin de leer por en sima vez este hermoso libro.Lo llev al trabajo para no llorar como sab a que iba a hacer y desconsoladamente en mi dormitorio, as que trat de condicionarme para no lagrimear tan f cil, pero no pude lograrlo.Lloro aunque hayan pasado m s de quince a os desde la primera vez que lo le y todav a me sigue enterneciendo Puede tener muchas falencias la ropa de Dougless, esa combinaci n de colores es inimaginable aunque le ponga toda la onda del mundo , sobre todo el final, y s [...]


    27. This book was poorly written I don t expect much as a reader I like simple writing, big words and profound subjects are unnecessary in my opinion to make a book worth while, but this was too painful to even finish At the beginning of the book I noticed the author uses the characters names over and over when describing a scene much like the writing you would see in a children s book Douglass crossed the street Douglass saw a chicken and kicked it Douglass smiled at the chicken and pat it s head D [...]


    28. I didn t much like the first half of the book and it took me ages to get into it I honestly dont know who I wanted to slap , the mean boyfriend and his spoiled daughter, or our heroine Dougless hate her name for putting up with all of their S t At the start Dougless was so pathetic and spineless when she let the boyfriend walk all over her in the hope of an engagement ring Thankfully the hero Nicholas was brilliant and saved me from throwing the book out the window with frustration, and boy am I [...]
