From the ruins of a Spanish mission, she would build a splendidly luxurious pleasure resort frequented by the world’s most glamorous people. A woman of indomitable passions and remarkable strength, she was forced to deal with the jealousies and deceptions of those nearest her, and the crushing loss of the husband she adored. Overcoming the setbacks life put in her way, she was always the grandde, creating grandeur and elegance.

As other reviewers have already written ,this book is not a romance novel -certainly not the sort of romances that made Jude Devereux a name to reckon with as a romance novelist.

I had to keep looking at the cover deveraud times to check whether I have not bought a Danielle Steele by mistake! Sep 26, Susan Krich rated it it was amazing.

A good romance novel with non stop action. Aug 04, Mona rated it it was ok Shelves: This book is not good, m’kay? Thankfully, I knew going into this that judee is not typical Deveraux style. She has quite a following, and I want to read her books by order of publication date.


Casa Grande by Jude Deveraux

This was the 4th one I’ve read, and thankfully it wasn’t the first or I’d never pick up another. The first three I read were fair, and I’m hopeful she evolves as a writer as her huge fanbase says she does. Surely the 5th title she wrote frande better than this one, as I can’t imagine anything much worse. Mar 05, Kristi Davis rated it liked it.

Re-read this over the weekend. Not my favorite but fascinating as she takes us through her whole life and so many different events that happened during it. Laura is definitely frustrating in how she looks and behaves toward her family. Apr 13, Tracey Sanderson rated it really liked it. Took me decades to read because it’s not a genre I normally enjoy, jdue though I love Jude Deveraux.

The story was unique and I really enjoyed the book. I wish I’d read it sooner. Jan 09, Jana Giacomi rated it really liked it Shelves: ISBN so old it doesn’t show deversux.

Jude Gilliam was born September 20, in Fairdale, Kentucky.

She has a large extended family and is the elder sister of four brothers. She attended Murray State University and received a degree in Art. InJude married and took her husband’s surname of White, but four years later they divorced.


For years, she worked as 5th-grade teacher. She began writing inand published her first bo Jude Gilliam was born September 20, in Fairdale, Kentucky. She began writing inand published her first book, The Enchanted Land under the name Jude Deveraux.

Following the publication of her first novel, she resigned her teaching position. Now, she is the author of 31 New York Times bestsellers. Jude won readers’ hearts with the epic Velvet series, which revolves around the lives of the Montgomery family’s irresistible men. Jude’s early books are set largely in 15th- and 16th-century England; in them her fierce, impassioned protagonists find themselves in the midst of blood feuds and wars.

Her heroines are equally scrappy — medieval Scarlett O’Haras who often have a low regard for the men who eventually win them over. They’re fighters, certainly, but they’re also beauties who are preoccupied with survival and family preservation. Jude has also stepped outside her milieu, with mixed results. Deveraux manages to evoke a strong and convincing atmosphere for each of her books, but her dialogue and characters are as familiar as a modern-day soap opera’s.

In fact, with ‘s The Mulberry TreeDeveraux seems to be getting more comfortable setting stories in the present, which is a good thing, since the fans she won with her historical books are eager to follow her into the future. Jude married Claude White, who she later divorced in Around the same time she met Mohammed Montassir with whom she had a son, Sam Alexander Montassir, in Jude has lived in several countries and all over the United States. She currently lives in Charlotte, North Carolina and has an additional home in the medieval city of Badolato, Italy.
