There are more Jude Deveraux novels discounted a little and a lot – and a short story of hers that I love is on sale digitally for .99c. I featured a few earlier, but here's some more! Deveraux is one of those authors who holds up well for me on re-read, even if the book is 20+ years old. I love her early books like whoa and magic twins.
The Enchanted Land is $1.99 on sale, and features probably one of my very favorite 80s names: Morgan Wakefield. Recalling Morgan Fairchild AND Sweet Valley? Word.
For beautiful Morgan Wakefield, the enchanted land is the ranch in New Mexico her father has left her. But the only way for her to inherit is if she lives there for a year with a husband. And so Morgan proposes a marriage of convenience to a man she just met—handsomely rugged rancher Seth Colter.
In Seth's powerful embrace, Morgan discovers a passion she never knew existed, and an unexpected new love blossoms between them. But devastating challenges and betrayal conspire against these lovers, and they will have to fight for a future together on this wild, enchanted land.
RECOMMENDED: This is a .99c US novella originally published in an anthology called Simple Gifts that I have read over and over. It is wonderfully sweet and simple – with all the Deveraux hallmarks, like twins and shopping and clever heroines and over the top adorableness and it's just smile-sigh wonderful. I hope, if you try it, you'll let me know what you think.
In the snow-covered hills of Virginia, a young widow finds that miracles really do come in the least expected packages.
Moonlight in the Morning is $4.74 digitally. Between this, the third cover for Crystal Cove, and the cover for On the Island, I think “lady walking toward the ocean” is a growing fad. This is the first book in Deveraux's Edilean trilogy.
In an all-new trilogy set in blissful Edilean, Virginia, Jude Deveraux weaves together the tales of three young women, best friends since college, and the lives, loves, and dreams that await them. Sparks are flying between Jecca Layton and Dr. Tristan Aldredge. At the urging of her dear friend Kim, Jecca put the ruthless New York City art world on hold to spend the summer pursuing her passion for painting while enjoying Edilean’s tightly knit artistic community.
For years, Kim’s cousin Tris—the town’s handsome and dedicated doctor—felt a deep connection to Kim’s college “sister” Jecca, though they had met only once before; now, Jecca is swept off her feet by this strong, sensitive man in a summer of sensual delights. But when long shadows announce Jecca’s return to “real life” and the big city, the lovers must decide: Can they survive the distance? And who will sacrifice the life they’ve created for themselves to be together?
In the second novel in her bestselling Edilean trilogy, Jude Deveraux returns to the idyllic Virginia town where three best girlfriends joyfully reunite as they each seek out their heartfelt dreams and desires. Kim Aldredge is delighted that her dear college “sister” Jecca has found lasting love with Kim’s cousin Tristan.
But despite her flourishing jewelry-making career, Kim’s own happiness seems as distant as the childhood summer when she played the hours away with young Travis Merritt, who came to Edilean with his mother under mysterious circumstances.
At the end of that innocent season, he promised Kim he would return one day . . . and then vanished without even a goodbye. Years later, a worn photo is Kim’s only proof of the perfect joy they shared. But when she least expects it, Travis, now a savvy Manhattan attorney, will crash into her life once more. Will Kim see the boy she knew under the man he’s become?
