Wild Orchids

While here at AAR we all do our utmost to approach each book we review with an open mind, I must admit that based on Jude Deveraux's last few reviews here, I didn't have a lot of hope when I opened her newest release. Thirty-six hours later, I closed the book with a sigh. Wild Orchids is a tense and ...

Sweet Liar

I know Hostess Suzi-Qs are bad for me, but I can't help it. I love 'em. Even reading the list of ingredients on the package doesn't stop me from scarfing the darn things down - there's something about that specific combination of chocolate cake and gooey cream that's irresistible to me. I've thought ...

Forever....

Imagine, if you will, Cameron Diaz starring in The Blair Witch Project or The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, and you'll begin to understand some of the difficulties I had in reading Jude Deveraux's latest release. I was never sure what I was reading: is the book a paranormal (there are witches and telepa ...

The Mulberry Tree

Reading The Mulberry Tree was like watching somebody else's home movies. Somebody you don't know very well, and don't really like all that much. Never mind that they charged you $25 (hardcover) for the privilege. With the exception of a beta hero who managed to capture my interest, I'm still shaking ...

A Knight in Shining Armor

A Knight in Shining Armor by Jude Deveraux is truly the definition of a Desert Isle keeper for me. If I could only have ten books to read for the rest of my life, I would want this to be one of them. I knew this book was something special when I read it for the first time while I was in college. I s ...

The Summerhouse

They say an author is only as good as her last book. I hope I am more open-minded than that. I have been disappointed in Deveraux’s books since Remembrance, but I didn’t give up completely. I borrowed newer works from friends, the library, and even read them in bookstores, always hoping to find ...

Twin of Fire and Twin of Ice

Jude Deveraux's Twin of Ice and Twin of Fire, originally published separately in 1985, have now been reissued in one volume. The two novels have parallel, simultaneous plots and work best read together. Twin of Ice describes Houston Chandler's relationship to her husband Kane Taggert; Twin of Fire t ...

Temptation

I feel I owe a lot to Jude Deveraux. She and Julie Garwood are the two authors who got me hooked on reading romances. Deveraux's Knight in Shining Armour and her Velvet Quartet were among the first romances I ever read and they made a lasting impression on me. I've been disappointed by her last few ...

High Tide

I started reading romance seriously a little over six years ago, and since then I have read every new book Jude Deveraux has published, and most of her backlist as well. After reading High Tide, I am starting to ask myself why I have been such a slavish Deveraux devotee. Like many of Deveraux's rece ...
