There was quite extensive damage to one of the pages of this book but I taped it together and have read it.

Although I didn't find as much true passion in this novel, I enjoyed it a great deal. The absolute romance that surrounded and enveloped the other two velvet books just wasn't as prominent in this one. But the story was still very good... I loved hearing more about Gavin and Judith and Stephen and Bronwyn.
I found Raine to be very tempermental towards Alyx which just didn't fit his personality from earlier books. He never had a bad word to say to Judith, yet with Alyx, the woman he was supposed to adore... he could be very hateful.
I took it all in stride though and found that I didn't like Raine any less... I just accepted his temprement, knowing that he was going through hard times and dealing with it the best way he knew how.
I was a bit upset at the lack of concern over not seeing his child with Alyx for some time, but he redeemed himself near the end and I felt much better about that situation.
Alyx loved Raine to the point of death... and I could relate to her need to help him even if he wouldn't help himself... no matter how angry he became. The scene with Alyx and the King was touching and very well written...
All in all, its a good book... definetely worth a read since it is a big part of the Montgomery brothers story.

Perhaps I am not the best person to review "Velvet Song;" after all, I never finished the book. This book is simply horrendous as well as a diappointment. "Velvet Promise" was decent and "Highland Velvet" was absolutley fabulous, but Deveraux really falls flat on her face with the third installment of the "Velvet" series. The story is basically a weed-wacked version of Robin Hood. The hero, Rain, is the type of man no woman would want: he's unkind, untrusting, unattractive, and uninteresting. The heroine's attraction to him is truly an unbelieveable, and, as a result, the book has no legitimate premise. If this is a romance, well, then, I just don't know what to say...
I struggled while choosing a rating for this book. It was bad, but I am sorry to say I have read lesser books than this gem. Save your money. Read "Higland Velvet" again and call it a day.
And by the way, don't read "Velvet Angel" either. ("Velvet Song" is worse than "Velvet Angel by a very slim margin.) These books are truly two egregious entries on Deveraux's resume.

Unlike some other veiwers who said they were dissapointed in the Raine character, I found him to be wonderful. I like that all four brothers were different from each other in the Velvet Series and Raine was definitly different. I appreciated the character more than the other brothers (except Miles for obvious reasons). This is definitly a good book. I read it in one evening. You must Read all four of the books to get a good appreciation. In order of what book was intended to be read first to last is 1) The Velvet Promise 2) Highland Velvet 3)Velvet Song 4)Velvet Angel.
Also keep in mind that these books did have more sexual content than most of Jude Deveraux's newer books. Obviously people read romance for the dirty stuff...I found it a bit unneccisary (I spelled that wrong Im sure).

Once again, Ms. Deveraux brings tears to my eyes. This was a beautiful story of love. It was also pretty funny. Especially, when the hero can't understand why he is attracted to the young "boy" he has taken in.

This has been my least favorite Deveraux novel. Raine was the Montgomery brother that I looked forward to reading about the most, yet it was his story that I was most disappointed in!
I did not like the heroine. She came across as ignorant and small minded. SO not like the woman one would imagine for open minded, caring Raine. It was simply Alyx (the heroine) that ruined the book for me.
She somewhat came around at the end, but it just seemed like Ms. Deveraux was missing something in the chosen personality, choices and comments made by the heroine.
Raine's character has always been the defender and fighter of those less fortunate. He sees them on a somewhat equal level (a HUGE thing for the Elizabethan era), yet Ms. Deveraux places him with a heroine who is close minded and down right prejudice! It didn't seem fitting, in my opinion.
I loved all of the Velvet Series except for this one. I re-read the other three all of the time, but I cannot force myself to re-read this one. It was difficult to get through the first time.
(*A recommendation about The Velvet Series: Be sure to read them in order. They are far more enjoyable (and make more sense) this way. However, Ms. Deveraux writes in such a way that even if you read them separately, they still come together nicely. The series (in order) consists of: The Velvet Promise, Highland Velvet, Velvet Song and Velvet Angel.)

Alyx Blackett has been forced from her home by an English Nobleman. She watched her home burn down with her father inside it and felt something die inside her. She was then branded as a witch and a high price was put on her head for capture and trial. The only way that she can save herself is to retreat to the forest to live along with other men and women who have been branded traitors by the King.
Raine Montgomery has been delcared a traitor and works hard to turn the muderers and theives in the forest into honest men. His hate for the Chatworths is strong when he learns of the suicide death of his sister Mary after she was raped by Roger Chatworth, whom the reader was introduced to in Highland Velvet. Raine's hate burns strong and he is very unlike how Deveraux introduced him in the two previous Montgomery novels.
Alyx is somewhat tiresome with her voice and bellowing. Raine gets annoying with his constant unhappiness with Alyx. This novel did not show the reader much of Raine's thoughts, which was dissapointing as it was hard not to fall in love with him in the previous two novels. I also wondered what father would stay away from his daughter for a full year after her birth when he claimed to love her mother so much.
I am going to start Velvet Angel and hope it is better than Velvet Song.
