New York Times
bestselling author Jude Deveraux returns to the ruggedly magnificent island in For All Time,
the second novel in her Nantucket Brides trilogy—this time featuring the next generation of her beloved family of Montgomery-Taggerts.
The wedding of Alix Madsen and Jared Montgomery is a glorious affair at an elegant little chapel in the woods, followed by dinner and dancing, all while moonlight blankets the festivities in a romantic glow. While most guests are fixed on the happy couple, Jared’s cousin Graydon can’t look away from a bridesmaid, Toby Wyndam. It’s not just her quiet beauty that enthralls him or the way she makes him laugh. Toby possesses the truly remarkable ability of being able to distinguish Graydon from his identical twin brother, Rory. According to family legend, such a gift marks her as Graydon’s True Love.
But Graydon knows there is no possible way that they can ever be together, for he is heir to the Lanconian throne and is to marry a noble woman who has been chosen for him. Yet, intrigued by Toby, he asks her to help him hide on Nantuck for a week away from regal responsibilities. In exchange, he’ll assist her with planning acclaimed novelist Victoria Madsen’s lavish wedding. Since they both know their union is impossible, the pair promises that they will never be more than just friends.
But there’s more going on between Graydon and Toby than her unique power to tell him apart from his twin. At work are forces beyond their control, which are ruled by time itself. Combine that with the magical island of Nantucket, and a seductive spell is cast over Graydon and Toby. If they are to be together, they must change what once was, as well as what will be.
“We need to get some watercolors so I can finish the green theme.”
“That’s easy and after we get them we can go to a beach. And this time you can work while I do nothing.” She nodded towards the empty cases.
“I’m a prince.” he said haughtily. “I don’t do luggage.”
“Why, you-!” Toby took a step towards him but stopped herself. “Just be warned that I put a pea under your mattress.” “Oh, my aching back!”
She had just finished unpacking his luggage because he said he couldn’t figure out how to find anything in there, while he sat and drew sketches of wedding themes they talked about for her new client. Graydon is trying his best to keep things friendly but I don’t think he can for much longer…LOL. I am at 27% on my kindle fire and enjoying it so far! 🙂
