lindo, lindo... amei!!!

Tenho de dizer que estou completamente apaixonada por esta série de Jude Deveraux. Se no primeiro tinha adorado conhecer Alix e Jared, bem como a restante família (antepassados e tudo), neste segundo volume fiquei absolutamente rendida à Toby (de quem não tinha gostado muito no primeiro livro) e ao Graydon, um dos primos gémeos de Jared.
Graydon faz parte de uma família recheada de mistérios e de lendas. É príncipe herdeiro do reino de Lancónia e por algum motivo foi ao cas

I usually like Jude Deveraux's books enough to read most of them and even finish a lot of them, but I do find myself skimming quite frequently.

This one was about like that: enjoyable but not great. Interesting but not unique. Many flaws in the internal logic of her time-travel aspects, and somewhat trite in the romantic set-ups.

CHIEF COMPLAINT: Why, oh why, do romance authors think it's romantic for the female character to be a virgin at the age of.... whatever over 18???? This character must

I read the first book in this series waaaayyy back so the details were fuzzy but they came back fairly quickly. I remember enjoying the first book and the second was no different. I'm a sucker for a cute love story and when there's even the slightest magical element, I'm completely sold! And unlike a lot of typical romances, this one actually kept me guessing throughout. This was a pure guilty pleasure read for me and I absolutely loved it!

Because I have a house on Nantucket Island, I often read books about Nantucket.

This novel has everything I hate about typical "romance books"; non-existing plot line, superficial characters, over-the-top situations...I don't have time to list all of them. Why can't we have interesting romance novels which can be just "novels"?

I know I shouldn't expect too much from a romance novel, but the historical facts in this novel are just outrageous! The names of current stores and restaurants are accurat

This book felt lackluster, without real chemistry or passion. The time travel (paranormal) element didn't fit neatly into the plot and mostly became a distraction. There was definitely no proper setup for it.

Basic setup: Toby and Graydon meet at a wedding. She can tell Graydon apart from his identical twin brother which, apparently, means they're destined for one another. Might have been cute, if it had been followed up with anything else that convinced me these two needed one another. And I me

Received ARC from NetGalley for an honest review:

"For All Time" opens up right where "True Love" (book # 1 in the Nantucket Brides Trilogy) left off with the wedding of Alix Madsen and Jared Montgomery. Jared's cousin, Graydon Montgomery (an identical twin who also happens to be a real prince and future king of small, but well known, country) is in attendance. Partnered with Graydon in the wedding party is Toby Wyndam. Toby is Alix' very dear friend.

Originally reviewed for Bodice Rippers, Femme Fatales and Fantasy.

There is just something special about Jude Deveraux, she writes these sweeping sagas full of grand gestures and forever love. Full of normal people discovering a love beyond belief. Of discovering who they are and where they truly came from. She has this writing style that is hard to describe and yet totally and completely her own. I know I could pick up a book with no cover, title or author information and after just a few pages

Na verdade, é mais do mesmo, Jude Deveraux utiliza uma fórmula muito básica e simples. Não quer dizer que não valha a pena ler, é só que não representa grande desafio em termos de leitura. As primeiras 300 páginas foram bastante melosas, sem nada de especial, o bom esteve nas últimas 100 páginas, na minha opinião. (view spoiler) ...more

Reading a Jude Devereax is like going home for me. This was what I was looking for. Sweet, a group of people who all relate, some light angst, and that coming home feeling I get from reading about the Montgomerys. Though, one little side note made me really curious. A Montgomery cousin conceived in the 16th century. I'd love his story.

Frankly, I am not sure just how to grade this book. I am not sure I liked it. I have read many of the other books the author has written and have liked most, not all, of them. I am not sure what exactly I did not like about this book. Suffice it to say, it will never be one of my favorites. Graydon is immediately stricken with Toby when he spies her at a wedding. When they meet for the first time, he is even more attracted to her, and, the reader learns, she is finding him equally attractive. Th ...more

I have such a hard time with Deveraux's time traveling books. They are just not as good as her other books. And this one was no different.
Graydon is in town to watch his cousin get married. At least, that's why he's supposed to be in town. As the heir apparent to the Lanconian throne, he is most certainly not supposed to be ogling bridesmaid Toby. And yet... there's a draw. One more powerful than his mother's disapproval and even overriding his good sense to remember that he's supposed to be en

Se é um romântico incurável, daqueles que adora uma história de amor e de contos de fadas, este livro é para si!

Neste livro acompanhamos a história da Toby e do Graydon, que se conhecem num casamento de família e se apaixonam (ainda que não saibam) à primeira vista. Contudo, Graydon é um princípe (daqueles a sério, que está na lista de espera para o trono), está prometido a outra mulher e o seu sentido de responsabilidade jamais o deixará afastar-se dos seus deveres.

Recommends it for: those who enjoy a good romance and a bit of time-travel thrown in.
I would love to experience Nantucket. Jude Deveraux's For All Time(Nantucket Brides,#2) is a delight.
I have always liked Ms. Deveraux's work, but it has been awhile since I have read one of her books. I do not think that I will let too much time go by before I pick up another. This second addition to The Nantucket Brides Trilogy was fun. I must admit that I am quite intrigued by Nantucket now. The second bride, Toby, meets a groomsman at the first bride's wedding.

Everyone should be loved like this "For All Time"

For All Time by Jude Deveraux is the second book in her Nantucket Brides Trilogy and it does not disappoint. After reading “True Love”, the first book in the trilogy I had to visit Nantucket to see if it was as described in the book. I am thrilled to tell you Jude does justice to Nantucket and if you feel like you have been there after reading either of the books you will have gotten an accurate picture of the Island.

That being said, For All Time

Have you ever wanted to re-read a book you just put down? I was going to be all funny and say something about the sun coming up but I'm still sniffling.

The story stands as a complete and satisfying story all on its own. Yes there are overlaps from book one. The story doesn't quite end yet it does and I can see the beginning of book three. The only thing you need to

I was given the first book, True Love, as an ARC. When I saw the second book, For All Time, available at my library I picked it up. I enjoyed book two more than book one! As is, I do recommend reading book one first as otherwise you may miss some of the underlying story or be confused with its characters.

I've read a lot of Jude Deveraux books, with my favorites being Knight in Shining Armour and her Always series. Now, this new series may not be as good as my favorites of hers but she is includi

Este romance é, como muitos outros, sobre um casal que se apaixona, onde os protagonistas são almas gémeas um do outro, mas não podem concretizar esse amor, pois há algo que os impede de ficarem juntos - há vidas separadas à espera deles e muito desastre se eles teimarem em remar contra o destino. Mas, ao contrário de muitos romances, estes protagonistas não tentam lutar contra a maré, mas aceitam o tempo que podem estar juntos. Claro que o destino é soberano, mas muitas vezes quer algo diferent ...more

Picking up where True Love (Nantucket Brides #1) left off, we are in the midst of the wedding of Alix Madsen to Jared Montgomery. All the friends and family are there and a few newcomers have arrived.

Toby has been tasked with the unofficial title of "wedding planner" and she is ensuring that everything is perfect to Alix and Jared.

Graydon, a Montgomery cousin and his twin brother Rory, have flown in for the wedding. Graydon can't keep his eyes off Toby. Graydon, who is nothing if not honorable,

The second book in the Nantucket Bride Series, this (supposedly) starts where the first one leaves off. Which is why, if you have not read the first book in this series, I suggest you do before you pick this up or you’ll be heartily confused…which I was for a good chunk of this book. It was so hard to concentrate on Toby and Graydon with so many supporting characters that seemingly came out of nowhere and had some backstory I did not know

LOVED this book! FOR ALL TIME, the second in the Nantucket Brides Trilogy, was an awesome read and I can't wait to read the third book. The further I read, the more I was reminded why Jude Deveraux is one of my favorite romance authors: the love story, the charming setting, the characters, the paranormal elements and time travel, and the pacing that made it so hard to put the book down.

Toby meets a prince at her friend's wedding, and they don't exactly hit it off since the first thing out of hi

Oh, I love this setting so much!! What I actually appreciate most about the Nantucket Brides Trilogy is that you don't need to be familiar with the Montgomery's to enjoy it. I haven't read Jude Deveraux's books about the Montgomery's or the Taggert's (someday!), but I wasn't lost at all. She does a great job of introducing characters that obviously are covered in other books, but I don't feel like I was missing out on much.

I loved how most, if not all, of the characters from the first book reapp

“The first time they’d been together she’d had to coax him to not be so gentle. But not this time. He didn’t bother with words or undressing. He slammed her against the bedroom wall and lifted her skirt. That’s when he found out that, this time, she’d gone pure Regency. She wore nothing under her petticoat, just lots of warm skin. Graydon unfastened his trousers with one hand and in seconds he set her down on him. Toby gasped at the sensation and clung to him, her legs easily going around his waist. His thrusts were hard and fast and Toby felt them all through her body. Inside her, a growing urgency was released, building and building.
