I absolutly loved this series. All the characters were so vibrant and realistic it was hard not to fall in love with them. No one wants to read about a character who is boring and plain, this is why I love Jude Deveraux. She never lets you down.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I've given Jude Deveraux many chances and have come up disappointed and dissatisfied each time. I read Remembrance, The Duchess, and A Knight in Shining Armor before picking up Velvet Promise at the bookstore. And after reading it, I've come to the conclusion that I simply do not like Jude Deveraux. Velvet Promise contains all the elements I've detested in her the previous works I've read, leading me to the conclusion that each Jude Deveraux book I read was not simply "not her best," but a trend in her writing. Her writing style is childish, and the simplistic sentence structures are boring and do not lend to the sense of passion and feeling a romance novel should emit. I couldn't get into the characters at all - Gavin was childish, as was Judith, and Alice, well, she was too over-the-top as the jealous ex-girlfriend villan. The story was so uninteresting that I almost didn't finish it because I found myself not caring one bit what happened to any of the characters.
This is the end of my trial of Jude Deveraux. If you want to read some fast paced, fun, interesting romances with great dialogue and intreging characters and storylines, try anything by Judith McNaught, Julia Quinn, Suzanne Enoch, or Stephanie Laurens.

I loved this book. I read many different books. This by far is my all time favorit. Jude Deveraux is one of my favorite romance writers I have run into. I have read it three times and am starting on a fourth. Judith becomes so real before you know it all her sorrows and joys are yours . I cryed over this book more every time I read it. This a masterful tale that will draw you in and never let go. Gavin is a little bit of all men sweet with a lot of pain ,anger,hate,and ,lust. May I also suggest the othere Montgomery novels... Highland Velvet, Velvet Song,Velvet Angel, And The Black Lyon which has a surprising connection to the Montgomery novels

I object to any novel in which rape is seen as an acceptable way for a man to bring his wife into line. Ditto smashing her in the mouth, and sadomasochistic kinky sexual practices. there is way too much hot andheav stuff between Gavin the supposed hero and Alice, his mistress who has married another because she is ambitious. her husband is a savage who resorts to the abovementioned practices, and all the other women in the castle are like something from a Drcula film as they all satisfy their unnatural desires.
Judith is too good to be true in some cases and a total fishwife in others, and Gavin has got to be the dumbest man alive not to see through Alice. For 2 whole years, no less. The ending is melodrama at its worst, and the miscarriage Judith suffers because of her is just as glossed over as the appalling violence toward women in the rest of the book. Their constant jealousy and bickering makes the book a chore to read after the first 50 pages. I kept hoping it would get better but it didn't. And of course evil Alice is left alive for revenge at the end of the book. I wish she had sapred us a sequel but she didn't.

This book starts out with a scene that bothered me quite a bit... but then I think that is what the author intended... it certainly drew me in and drove me to read more... very strong beginning to the story of Judith and Gavin. I love it when a book begins so wonderfully and intensely.
Gavin.... well he was handsome and his personality was very realistic for the period of time the book was written in. He was frustrated with Judith but still willing to listen to her thoughts. This made him even better in my eyes. However, I didn't like his reaction to her knowledge of he and Alice in the garden on their wedding day. I felt Judith had every right to be angry and he was angrier than she was because she had supposedly eavesdropped. He seemed kind of simple when it came to women and their feelings... but towards the end of the book... he redeemed himself in my eyes.
Judith was one of my favourite heroines. She was not raised as other girls had been and she had seen much pain and violence in her short life. These experiences made her so strong and unwilling to back down from any man. She was beautiful, but didn't seem to know it and that made her so endearing.
I really enjoyed watching these two fall in love, though they both frustrated me beyong belief at times. I despised Alice and found myself looking forward to the day when she would "get hers".
All in all... its a great book that brings out every possible emotion you could imagine... Can't wait to read the next in the series... Highland Velvet... It's about Stephan, the next brother who is just as hotheaded, yet endearing as his older brother. Should be a good read.
