Description
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Jude Deveraux, the bestselling author of unforgettable romance, returns with a breathtaking first book in a fantastic new series--the Nantucket Brides trilogy. Set on the magical Massachusetts island, True Love introduces characters from a new generation of Montgomery-Taggerts, the beloved family from Deveraux's classic novels.   Just as Alix Madsen is finishing up architectural school, Adelaide Kingsley dies and wills her, for one year, the use of a charming nineteenth-century Nantucket house. The elderly woman's relationship to the Madsen family is a mystery to the spirited Alix--fresh from a romantic breakup--but for reasons of her own Alix accepts the quirky bequest, in part because it gives her time to plan her best friend's storybook wedding.   But unseen forces move behind the scenes, creaking Kingsley House's ancient floorboards. It seems that Adelaide Kingsley had a rather specific task for Alix: to solve the strange disappearance of one of the Kingsley women, Valentina, more than two hundred years ago. If that wasn't troubling enough, Alix must deal with the arrogant (and extremely good-looking) architect Jared Montgomery, who is living in the property's guesthouse.   Unbeknown to Alix, Jared has been charged with looking after her while she lives on the island--an easy task for him, considering the undeniable chemistry between the two. But Jared harbors secrets of his own, which, if revealed, may drive a wedge between the pair.   With a glorious Nantucket wedding on the horizon, sparks fly, and the ghosts of the past begin to reveal themselves--some of them literally. Finding their lives inextricably entwined with the turbulent fortunes of their ancestors, Alix and Jared discover that only by righting the wrongs of the past can they hope to be together. Praise for True Love   "Jude Deveraux's Nantucket Brides series will sweep you away. A beautiful island, a sexy man, and plenty of secrets--this is a wonderful writer at her best."-- Susan Mallery   "A new Jude Deveraux novel means a very late night turning the pages straight through to the delicious end."-- Susan Elizabeth Phillips   " 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 . . . [It] will haunt you long after you read it."-- Pittsburgh Post-Gazette   "Deveraux is at her spellbinding romantic finest."-- Booklist "A novel about star-crossed love, life, death and reincarnation . . . a romantic story of love so deep it survives centuries."-- Kirkus Reviews

display_description After she mysteriously inherits a nineteenth-century Nantucket house, Alix Madsen gets drawn into the unsolved disappearance of her ancestor two hundred years ago and begins to have feelings for Jared Montgomery, who lives in the property's guesthouse. Set on the magical Massachusetts island of Nantucket, this novel introduces characters from a new generation of Montgomery-Taggerts, beloved family from many of the author's previous novels. Just as Alix Madsen is finishing up architectural school, Adelaide Kingsley dies and wills her, for one year, the use of a charming nineteenth-century Nantucket house. The elderly woman's relationship to the Madsen family is a mystery to the spirited Alix, fresh from a romantic breakup, but for reasons of her own Alix accepts the quirky bequest, in part because it gives her time to plan her best friend's storybook wedding. But unseen forces move behind the scenes, creaking Kingsley House's ancient floorboards. It seems that Adelaide Kingsley had a rather specific task for Alix: to solve the strange disappearance of one of the Kingsley women, Valentina, more than two hundred years ago. If that wasn't troubling enough, Alix must deal with the arrogant (and extremely good-looking) architect Jared Montgomery, who is living in the property's guesthouse. Unbeknown to Alix, Jared has been charged with looking after her while she lives on the island, an easy task for him, considering the undeniable chemistry between the two. But Jared harbors secrets of his own, which, if revealed, may drive a wedge between the pair. With a glorious Nantucket wedding on the horizon, sparks fly, and the ghosts of the past begin to reveal themselves, some of them literally. Finding their lives inextricably entwined with the turbulent fortunes of their ancestors, Alix and Jared discover that only by righting the wrongs of the past can they hope to be together.
