Read full description of the books:
Nothing infuriates me more when the author destroys my favorite character in a book, much less in a series. Champion of the underdog, Raine Montgomery is the main reason why I love the Velvet saga – his sense of honor and his unwavering loyalty and love for his family is what makes him my favorite Montgomery brother. With this book, however, Jude Deveraux has obliterated Raine’s character and I’m not sure I’ll be able to recover.
As we know from book 2, Raine has been banished by the king after using his men to settle a family feud. He’s been living in the forest for the past few months, waiting for a chance to petition the King. Meanwhile, the heroine and beloved singer Alyx is on the run after her local lord kills her father. Disguising herself as a boy, she flees into the same forest Raine inhabits and becomes his serving boy.
For the most part, I really liked the premise of the story – it’s very different from the first two books, and I was interested to see how the author would develop a relationship between the two main characters. While I enjoyed most of their relationship development in the beginning, I got weary reading how judgmental Alyx was or how stubborn Raine got. Miscommunication caused the couple to separate for almost the entire second half of the book, thus I didn’t really buy into the romance nor was I convinced of their love for each other. The thing that really angered me the most was how the author took Raine’s most admirable qualities – honor and pride – and used it as his excuses for shunning Alyx and everything she did for him.
Just like the first two books, book 3’s ending was also disappointing – the author delivers a rushed conclusion to Raine and Alyx’s story and that also cheapened the romance. I give low ratings out of anger or frustration but very rarely out of sadness. For this book, however, it greatly saddened me to give 2 stars to my favorite Montgomery brother’s book. I will always feel like the author didn’t do Raine justice.
Thanks Camaro for re-reading with me! Onto the last one!

Read information about the authorJude 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 more 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.
