It has been awhile since I have read (and re-read) her books, but I think that "The Duchess" has an American heiress marrying a descendent.

At the end of Velvet Angel, under "What Happened to Everybody", it is written that a descendent of Judith's has an appointment with an American descended from Miles Montgomery. Does anyone know if this is a book? If so, which one?

I too started with Knight in Shining Armour. Then I found Rememberance and I've read it 3 times. I've been unable to find anyone who has read it.
I gave the book to someone and now I feel I'd like to read it again.
I strongly relate to the incredible power of love in this book.
i always feel good after reading any of Jude's books.

It depends on which Mont. series you are talking about. My personal favorite is the Medieval series, known as the Velvet quartet, which go 1. the velvet promise 2. Highland Velvet 3. Velvet Song 4. Velvet Angel.

With regards to historical romance writers doing research, most historical romance writers do tons of research for their books. Having attended many writing conferences, conventions, etc. I have learned that you cannot write about historical times (such as colonial times, medeival times, etc.) without doing extensive research on the time period, the dialects, the clothes, the social mores, etc. Writers do research through the internet, libraries, historical books, archives and by talking to historians. Yes, contrary to a lot of peoples' opinions, romance writers do a lot of research for their books.

I was just on a fan website and learned that Jude Deveraux recently suffered the loss of her 8 year old son. There is an e-mail adress listed as contact information for her (although I believe it is for condolences, not nesaccerily for scheduling purposes) if that helps. Unfortunatly i did not take not of the web address.
I recently finished reading Carolina Isle and was very disappointed. I thought that I would warn all of you Jude fans that this is far from her best work. I have loved every single one of her other books. I also began by reading Knight In Shining Armor and have been a huge fan ever since. Unfortunatly. This was the first book of hers that ever fell flat for me. It lacked any true feeling, which is something that her books are known for. Actually, as I was reading it felt as if this book were possibly just a draft, or an idea for a book, that was never polished and finished. I felt as though someone (possibly a publisher) just wanted to release something and so they said "give me what ever you've got"!
On a more positive note. If you have not read Wild Orchids I definatly recommend it. I was in awe of Jude's writing talent when I finished that book. Happy reading to you all!

I just finished my first Jude Deveraux book "Knight In Shining Armor" and I am sooo excited. Cghapter 20 had me crying on two occasions. I guess I really identified with Dougless. Her details of everyday life in those times are the greatest. I get so much enjoyment out of these details. BUT I do need some help convincing my mother that a lot of work goes into research of the way people lived during these times. Could you please send me some info on how these details are researched and where the information is found so 1) I can prove my point and 2) That I may also enjoy researching everyday living in other times. Without a doubt Jude is my very favorite author now and I have just started my second book "The Conquest. I will not leave one page she has written unturned. I would also like to know if Jude has a fanclub and if there is any way to contact her personally. Thank You in advance for your response.
