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.

I am an independent bookseller in eastern North Carolina and am seeking a method of contacting Ms. Deveraux to a bookfestival. Does anyone have an email or snail mail address for her. The S&S website wasn't much help. Thanks.

I just finished the 3rd book in the forever series and I'm craving more. Does anyone know if she is going to write a 4th book? The very last page of the story seemed like there was an opening for a continuation but she could have just wanted us to use our imaginations. I really hope thats not the case, because "forever", "forever and always", and "always" are my favorite books that deveraux has written. While I wait for this next installment does anyone have any ideas what happened to adam and bo? and don't you think darci was taking a huge risk at the end of the 3rd book going back and changing everything?

His story is in The Invitation. As one of the short stories. Good stories by the way I enjoyed them!

Jude has a novel about frank taggert already. It's in "simple gifts" i think. I'm looking for the book that features Kane Taggert. Does anyone know what the book is called. I know its one with a few short stories. Can't find it anywhere.

Does she have an official website? If so, can anyone link me, please? :-)

I think her next story should be a series of short ones on characters she'd introduced in previous books... for example Justin in River Lady or Frank Taggart or Joby from the Heiress or Jamie Montgomery 'Ring and Carrie's brother. Someone...

No one used to post here then when I posted once, people started posting again. That's odd :) So, HAS anyone ever read HEIRESS?
