NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Jude Deveraux's eagerly awaited third novel in her blockbuster Nantucket Brides trilogy continues the spellbinding saga of the Montgomery-Taggerts, set on an island steeped in beauty and unforgettable romance.   Life is anything but perfect for Hallie Hartley, a young physical therapist who has given up nearly everything--even her love life--for her beautiful blonde stepsister, Shelly. Though Shelly's acting career has never taken off, she has certainly perfected the crocodile tears to get what she wants--which all too often means Hallie's boyfriends. When Hallie arrives home early from work one fateful day, she makes two startling discoveries that will turn her life upside down: Not only has a mysterious relative left Hallie a house on Nantucket, but Shelly has been trying to steal it. Desperate to put her troubles behind her, Hallie impulsively flies to Nantucket.   New trouble, however, has already settled into Hallie's guest room in the form of her newest client. Hallie is told that wealthy, young James Taggert has injured his leg in a skiing accident. Assuming that the devastatingly handsome man has led a charmed life, Hallie is surprised by Jamie at every turn throughout his recovery. His attentions draw her out of her shell--but he has a dark secret, and is tormented by nightmares that only her presence can keep at bay. She suspects there's more to his injury than he's letting on.   On this gorgeous island rich in history, magic is everywhere, even in Hallie's own backyard. As Jamie's relatives arrive for a wedding gala, something wonderfully unusual is in the air. There's an aura of romance--enhanced by a pair of matchmaking ghosts and a colorful island legend. In their own little corner of the world, Jamie and Hallie unravel the timeless secrets of their own hearts, and a very special story of True Love destined to last forever after. Praise for Ever After   "Wondrous . . . a lovely tale of love, healing and hope." --Fresh Fiction   "A sweet, idyllic love story . . . a romance in the most classic sense." --RT Book Reviews   "Filled with family, friends, ghosts and the magic love, Ever After is sure to please longtime fans of Deveraux, as well as new readers." -- BookPage   "[A] sexy, lighthearted romp." --Kirkus Reviews   "Thoroughly enjoyable." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)   Praise for Jude Deveraux   "A new Jude Deveraux novel means a very late night turning the pages straight through to the delicious end." --Susan Elizabeth Phillips True Love   " True Love, with its star-crossed lovers and twisty plot, evokes everything that makes Nantucket so special--the history, the atmosphere, the secrets, and the magic." --Susan Wiggs   "Destined to be an instant romance classic . . . will haunt you long after you read it." -- Pittsburgh Post-Gazette For All Time   "Deveraux takes us to a place where dreams are made. . . . A page-turning time-travel romance that captures your imagination from the start and keeps hold till the very last page." --Fresh Fiction "A beautifully written story with a refreshing old-romance feel . . . Fans of Deveraux will be delighted." --RT Book Reviews

display_description "Jude Deveraux, the New York Times bestselling contemporary romance author known for her incredible storytelling, spirited heroines, and sexy heroes, returns with her most enchanting novel yet: a love story set on Nantucket, featuring the Montgomerys and the Taggarts and filled with secrets and surprises"-- "Late one spring, Hallie Hartley learns she's inherited a beautiful old house on Nantucket from an ancestor she never knew she had. She learns of her luck from Jared Montgomery, who arranges for her to take on his cousin James Taggert as a private physical therapy client for the summer. Hallie expects a spoiled, frivolous playboy, but Jamie surprises her by being kind, considerate, and humble--not to mention incredibly strong and handsome. But Jamie's hiding something: every night Hallie hears him crying out in his sleep. Finding that only her presence can calm him, Hallie begins spending the night with Jamie, sneaking away every morning before he wakes up. It's not until Jamie's extended family descends onto the island to celebrate a lavish wedding that she discovers the truth: Jamie was a soldier, wounded in combat while saving a friend, and has suffered from PTSD since his return. Jamie withdraws, embarrassed by his vulnerability, while Hallie questions how she can trust him after he's lied to her all summer. But as the two team up to solve another of Nantucket's enchanting mysteries, whether it's the romantic island setting or possibly the work of some meddling matchmaker ghosts, Jamie begins to realize maybe he's found the one woman who can love him for who he is, scars and all"--
