With all honesty, Paranormal Romance is my very last option. If I would read romance novels, I would definitely argue with someone who would recommend a novel with Paranormal Elements in it. But what really is amazing is that the feeling I get from "Forever" until the last of the trilogy which is "Always" is priceless! The feeling is completely alien to me! I feel this excitement, tension, suspense, mystery, exuding from the novels so well that I could jump inside the book! I never thought it wo ...more
After reading all three books in this series i was really looking forward to Darci finding out where her husband had dissapeared to.. but was severely dissapointed in the ending! She never finds out.. but has to recreate a scenario of re-meating her own husband! I was so let down because through out book 2 and 3 she was deturmined to find out where he was, and never did! I Love most of Deveraux's fiction, but i did feel like she was trying to speed things up towards the end of Always... makes me ...more
I would love to have another story about Darci... I just find it hard to accept it ends just like that...

there is sooo much for her to do and I would like for her to grow in her powers. Pls...write another Darci Novel.....and not just make it a Trilogy....

I have no words to describe this novel. It was ... Just read it, you won't be disappointed!

magically written. elegantly told.
Jude Deveraux’s Always is a fun, sexy little book even though no sex occurs in the story of Darci Montgomery, a woman with supernatural gifts. Deveraux deftly keeps the sizzle going by introducing dashing men who seem to be one thing then turn out to be another. A thief turns into a hero, a potential romance becomes more of a sibling relationship, a past incarnation of lost love becomes a protector. Through it all, Darci and others never give into their attraction. Normally, this would have both ...more
This was a pretty good trilogy, I didn't enjoy it as much as I once enjoyed the first book though. I actually found that the final book in this trilogy was the one I enjoyed the most.

I didn't completely understand the epilogue. It kind of made me feel as if the story wasn't over yet, left me hanging a bit.

I did like the aspect where she went back in time and the way she helped Jack and Lavendar and how everything worked out for everyone. It was interesting how she spent so much time seeing how
This was really more of a 2.5 stars for me, but you can't give half-stars, and two-star means "I didn't like it" which isn't really accurate, hence the 2.5.

I picked up book two in this series without realizing it was part of a series. I really enjoyed book two (Forever and Always) and but I couldn't find book 1 after I read it, so instead I decided to read book 3 and cut to the chase. It was okay, but I liked book 2 a lot better.

Darci is an interesting character and the approach to paranormal in
In this third installment of the series/trilogy? Darci travels through time and ends up in Victorian times trying to figure out why she is there and if changing history will be a good or a bad thing. Her counterpart in this book, Jack, is intriguing and as a reader I wanted to know more about him. The story takes a twist when Darci meets Adam Drayton in the 1800s and he lookes and acts remarkably like her missing husband, Adam. The author effectively makes you feel how torn Darci is by her attra ...more

This is the first Jude Deveraux book I ever read. I received this book as a Christmas gift, and I had never read this author before, much less the first two books of this trilogy.

I was not impressed with the writing style. There's some good bits, but overall, this book failed to impress me, especially with the ending. I didn't find out that this was a trilogy until after I finished this book, but after what happens in this book, I have no desire to read the other two. I hear they're better, but
Deveraux does paranormal well. She tried hard at mystery, had some not as successful attempts there, but this paranormal series was a pleasure to read - meaning, I had trouble putting it down. After reading the first in the series, it took me a while to pick up the next two because the romance was complete, so that meant no romance in these, and I'm reading Deveraux's books for romance, so in concept, I wasn't excited. But she mixed in enough romantic longing and temptation in this book to satis ...more
I liked this book okay. It was an interesting concept for a story, but seemed not quite fleshed out enough or something. It also became clear that it was a sequel and having not read the first book(s) I was a little lost in a couple of places. The end was not what I was hoping for, (and let's face it, when you read a romance you know how you're hoping for it to end) and it seemed rushed to me. Almost like Deveraux just wanted to hurry and get the book finished. There was really no romance (and a ...more

Recommends it for: paranormal romance readers
My least favorite of the Montgomery trilogy. The chemistry between Darci and Jack (the male lead) wasn't as good as with Line and Adam, and the conclusion was disappointing. Darci may gain some nifty new powers, but the romance was really lacking and I didn't get a sense of closure. Also, there wasn't nearly as much humor in this one as the previous books. It was written entirely in the third person though, which was a step up from the last book where both Darci and Line narrated from the first. ...more

I didn't realize this was the last book in a trilogy, but I still enjoyed and was able to follow along. not a typical Jude deveraux romance, much more enjoyable. more mystery.

loved the stories, but felt something was not completely finished with it.
This is a book that I truly enjoyed reading.... I've had this for a couple years and almost just turned it in for credit at the bookstore when I thought, I should give it a chance. I usually don't read triology - and had I known it was I probably would have turned it in, as I don't like how they are always peppering the book with the prior stories. Despite that it moved along at a good clip, interesting characters, insights into themselves - but a sort of odd ending... like there is going to be ...more
For the third series, she have to help find Jack Rose's father.
I've always found Deveraux's exposition to be a little heavy-handed, but reading this book was like being pelted with anvils. And even in a romance (which this technically was but decidedly wasn't; I couldn't figure out who was supposed to be in love with whom until 3/4 of the way through the book) there's such a thing as being too in love with your characters. In retrospect, I should have taken the too-smug dedication at the beginning of the book as a sign, but no, I read on til the end, with t ...more

This was an excellent end to the series, but I would love to see the series continued, as it left me wanting to know more of what Darci discovers about herself and her gift.
just finished it...didnot find it that great...

I won't apologize for loving Jude Deveraux!

I loved this story up until the ending, which is exactly what happened with the first book. I expected a different ending because the whole book, as well as the book before it, hinted at what would need to happen for the trilogy to come to an end. I was left with the impression the book (and the trilogy for that matter) hadn’t been thought out completely. With that said, I still greatly enjoyed reading the trilogy and may even read them again. If you like light romance with heavy humor and psych ...more
MY rating is deceptive since I liked this book all the way till the 2 page epilogue! I wish now some one had told me just to skip those 2 pages! The book would have been better for it!! I mean, what on earth? How does that have to do with anything I have read in the 3 books? Is there to be a 4th? I doubt I will read it. But I was sucked into the story in book 1 and liked the characters enough to continue but enough is enough!

STILL I would recommend the book just skip the last 2 pages!
This is another book that was given to me and has been sitting on my shelf for a while. This was a very strange novel. It had psychics and time travel and was a little too strange. The characters were pretty unbelievable and that added to the overall strangeness.(Apparently many of the characters had been introduced by the author in another novel but I did not read it.) It was an ok novel and perhaps it would have been a little more believable if I had read the other books first.

Finally the conclusion, and yes it does make sense!

Darci is approached by her FBI contact to help with a kidnapping of a very rich man. Something tells her that it is somehow related to her missing husband and sister-in-law. She goes with Jack, who finds his true love, on a journey across time in which she gains a brother.

This series has a few sexy scenes, I'm not much on stories about supernatural activities but God is recognized within the books.

I am usually a Jude lover, but I feel like she really had a swing and a miss with this one. Actually, with both of the last two books in this trilogy. I don't feel like the plot of the second and third books was set up at all in the first book, and the final book didn't tie up any of the major questions of the trilogy, and left me completely unsatisfied. I really should have stopped reading after the first book.
I loved, loved, loved this book and this trilogy. I just couldn't stop reading it till the end. At first I was kind of frustated because Darci hadn't make any progress in finding her husband but then came Jack and the time travelling to 1843 which I really enjoyed. Afterwards they came back and Darci find out a way to fix the past and start again. I loved the finale when she and Adam met again.

Again, this is a sequel and I happened to read before the first book. My sister lent it to me. I enjoyed it, there was an element of mystery, a little fantasy, mostly dealing with time travel and "powers" that the main character has. It was an entertaining book, I would be curious to read the first one, and I am half curious if she is writing a third piece to it. Good book.
