Book Excerpt :

She came to him as a precious gift, a naked angel rolled in a rug. Once he gazed into her green eyes, saw her tangle of honey blonde hair, he was undone with passion. Elizabeth would never surrender. He was a hated Montgomery -- she was a Chatworth -- and the blood war between their families raged on, a wildfire of rape, murder, and betrayal. Elizabeth vowed to fight the handsome lord, to resist the burning desire in his eyes -- no matter how great the temptation.

Book Short Summary:

For centuries the witches in the city of Fairlight, and the vampire covens have struggled for power, even though for over two hundred years they supposedly have come to a workable truce. At the age of twenty Velvet Washington, a witch of superior skills, decides the vampires are breaking the spirit of the truce by turning victims in order to increase their numbers. Any witch, she believes, knows the power in numbers. Unfortunately, the Council doesn’t care and insists she mind her own business and stop the night stalking in graveyards. However, Velvet thinks it is her duty to halt the monthly risings of the undead. Wilder, a master vampire and his sired partner Jerome, trail her for a few months trying to figure her out. She is a witch that seems as driven as a slayer. Slayers, who just happen not to reside in Fairlight anymore. Intrigued by her skills and commitment Wilder approaches her. . Wilder has not lost any of his to her sword, so he can be generous enough to warn her to cease at once because the Coven as a whole, though reluctant to risk incident with the council, will get around to stopping her, and to Velvet the only way a vampire can make her stop anything is to kill her. Wilder finds her attitude ridiculous and tells her the folly of her single minded prejudice and extreme arrogance. He tries to convey she is short sighted in what she can accomplish with her talents, and what she could do for Fairlight as a whole community, rather than just for witches. Velvet ignores her grandmother’s advice and warnings not to trust a vampire, especially one she finds so attractive in the moonlight.

The New York Times bestselling Montgomery/Taggert Family series returns with a sizzling romance “packed full of warmth, humor, sensual tension, and exciting adventure” (RT Book Reviews) about a New York businesswoman on the run in Florida after being falsely accused of murder. A rising star at a Manhattan corporation, Fiona Burkenhalter is a New Yorker through and through and when her boss inexplicably sends her to handle a new account in the Florida Everglades, it may as well be another planet. But this is no ordinary business meeting: Fiona is to join her client on a rustic fishing expedition, accompanied by a guide with the larger-than-life name of Ace Montgomery. More than a little steamed at this detour from the executive fast track, Fiona never imagined that she’d embarked on the wildest adventure of her life—or that the rough-hewn, undeniably handsome Ace Montgomery from the Southern backwoods would become her closest ally. But hair-raising circumstances pull her deep into trouble from the moment she steps off the plane. Only in the heart of the swamplands could she get lost in a maze of intrigue and become the prime suspect for a shocking murder with Ace as her presumed accomplice. Suddenly, they discover that they have inherited the murder victim’s vast fortune and they are now Florida’s most wanted couple! Now, with their lives and hearts on the line, they turn up the heat in their desperate search for a killer.

Bestselling author Jude Deveraux spins a rollicking story of a mismatched couple who unearth a sparkling, irresistible passion across the rugged West! Captain Ring Montgomery was handsome, a skilled rider, a crack shot, popular with the men and their ladies. That was reason enough for a jealous, surly colonel to saddle Montgomery with a most peculiar assignment: to escort an opera singer into the Colorado gold fields. Ring’s plan was to scare the little lady enough so that she’d hightail it for home. After all, a Civil War was brewing! But LaReina, The Singing Duchess—as Maddie was called—didn’t scare easily. And she didn’t intend to explain her reasons for coming West to any high and mighty soldier. Captain Montgomery might be smart enough to figure out that she was no European duchess, and gentleman enough not to take advantage of her. But he’d have to go on thinking she had some insane desire to sing opera to a bunch of ragtag miners—for she didn’t dare trust him with the truth…

Book Short Summary:

Two childhood playmates grow into more than just friends in #1 New York Times bestselling author Jude Deveraux’s full-length romantic novel based on her short story of the same name. In the hugely popular, New York Times bestseller A Holiday of Love, Jude Deveraux wrote a novella about two kids playing matchmakers—Eli and Chelsea, best friends who were determined to find true love for Eli’s bighearted mother. But what happens when these ambitious children grow up? What exactly made Eli’s mother, Miranda, fall in love with Frank all those years ago? And how does that affect their future together? Eli and Chelsea lost touch with each other over the years, until Eli bought a house in his father’s hometown of Edilean, Virginia, and invited Chelsea for a visit. She had her own life, and was certain that a childhood friendship couldn't be anything more, but she went nonetheless—and found herself quite unprepared for the changes she saw in Eli. And neither of them were prepared to run into a mystery, with a family that needed to be rescued. Now, just like when they were children, they must join together to straighten out a very big problem. The question is what happens after the mystery is solved; they are very different people—so can they stay together? Combining love and passion with sweet, unexpected twists, and shedding new light on Miranda and Frank’s relationship, Change of Heart is an unforgettable addition to Deveraux’s classic bestselling novels.
