L you ll ust have to read the other book to find outPoints for melodrama and an authentic feel in time and place negative marks for lack of believable and satisfying character growth and dubious structuring of the storytelling In general I ve liked the plot of several of Deveraux s books But by the time I finish reading them I m almost always left wondering what the hell did I Religious Authority in the Spanish Renaissance just waste my time on It s taken me a dozen or so books but I ve finally realized that Deveraux does not know how to end a story Her plots are fun if predictable a la Nora Roberts and others but as she starts to wrap things up she has a tendency to slam a last ditch soap opera crisis at you only to end the story with a kiss on the next page I m sure I ll read of her works to get my guilty pleasure fix and I m sure when I m done I ll again ask myself what the hell did Iust waste my time on I really loved this one up until the end when the problems with the mines overtook the romance and the hero was still reluctant to trust the heroine s feelings for him It has the usual Deveraux feeling where the hero is a little rough around the edges and the heroine s as far away from a doormat as can be People who enjoy older styled romances will enjoy this I really enjoyed this which proves something doesn t have to be big on wtf ery for me to like it It s actually a pretty sweet story and has some elements I loveA hero who comes from a lower class background and makes it big yet is still that working class guy and fears people only want him for his money A heroine born to privilege and very much repressed by her placerole in society until she meets the heroA marriage of convenience that becomes a love matchAlso a hero with a nefarious ulterior motive for wanting the heroine and a ruthless streak when it comes to keeping her was the icing on the cakeThe hero was exactly like a real man kind of a clueless doofus much of the time but endearing His understanding of women was nonexistent Not the kind of guy to flowery speeches but "He Do Anything For "d do anything for one of first romance novels I ever read really enjoyed reading this and the counterpart Twin of Fire as it tells the same story from different view points Read for Fun LibraryOverall Rating 500Story Rating 500Character Rating 500First Thought when FinishedTwin of Ice by Jude Deveraux is one of those reads that never get old no matter how many times I have read ituick Thoughts I originally read this the summer after I turned 16 Kane Taggert was my first Romance Book crush Twin of Ice by Jude Deveraux can still manage to give me all the feels even though my adult self wanted to perhaps head swat Kane a few times Nothing beats Nostalgic Feels and Reads Part of my Read It Rate It File It DONE Reviews Great Just great.

Okay so that was really really cuteTo date I ve read several other Jude Deveraux books but have only really liked one a short story called The Matchmakers featuring the namesake of the hero in this story Kane Taggart I guess this tells me I should ust avoid anything of hers that isn t written in the TaggartMontgomery series because it s been a while but as I recall I was heavily disappointed by the books of hers I tried to read that weren t The MatchmakersOkay but on to this story Houston Chandler is one of a pair of twins She s been e From Ice to SteamWell I am off to buy the second half of this incredible duology Twin of Fire This was a very different story and I was very pleased with the results of the twin sisters switching places for that one event "even though i see some readers have condemned "though I see some readers have condemned s sister for going to far with her fiancee Her explanation was reasonable and the results understandable I suggest you read this very well written book containing many insecure people and decide for yourself I found the dynamics between Houston and her millionaire husband to be fascinating This is illustrated when her ex fiancee calls her a Ice Princess her husband replies What do you get when you apply enough heat to ice steam So true Jude Deveraux was one of my favorite 80 s romance writers This story was first copywrited in 1985 I remember it fondly re read it at least once a year I d have to say though it probably been about 15 years since I last read it Looking at my burgeoning book collection I decided to start wading through Maybe getting rid of some Sadly this book will be going to the Goodwill pile Just not what I remembered This story appears to be set in the early 1900 s although it s never really stated for sure They do have telephones electricity First I like the heroine Houston She s supposed to be demure ladylike nicknamed the ice ueen by her loving fiance hmm She has a good heart though a Decent Set Of Morals set of morals also has a secret Once a week she disguises herself as an old woman goes to a mining camp to give aid to the poor She always tries to do the right thing she s very loyal Unlike some people in her life Houston has a twin sister Blair who has come back from college a doctor Apparently she has the morals of an alley cat but I have to read her story again after this one so I ll have to do her review later Basically the twins trade places for an evening Blair steals the fiance after sleeping with him gasp Kane is the rich guy in town who decides that Houston is pretty enough a LADY So she will keep house for him have sex with him show up the other rich guy in town who he formally worked for in the stables as we are reminded ad nauseum He is NOT the hero of the story He s the male lead big difference He refers to. Happily betrothed to Dr Lee Westfield Houston is every bit the good girl she was raised to be So when faced with Kane Taggert's brash marriage Houston twice as a bitch once refers to her as no better then a high priced whore His best friend punches him in the nose for this comment but Kane is so dense he can t figure out why He remains dense through this whole story He is handsomerich with a body like a Greek god So what s a girl to do but marry him Besides he NEEDS her cough cough She falls in love with him I m not sure why I guess because he NEEDS her SO much sighThrough this whole story even when she proves to him otherwise he believes she married him for his money So he s ustified in treating her like crap She finds out he used her to get back at the other rich guy he couldn t care less about "HER THE WHOLE STORY GOES DOWNHILL PRETTY FAST I "The whole story goes downhill pretty fast I t think anything is really resolved at the end You know without a doubt there ll be a endless cycle of him being a Punishing the Art Thief jerk her having to forgive him for it Of course because NOTHING is ever his fault I have to say that I ve grown up in what I think is good romance fare This book isn t what I remembered Itust pissed me off 275 starsI read Twin of Ice

Because I M A Sucker 
I m a sucker a historical cowboy story and want to dig into the backlog of popular genre fiction to find those that resonate with me This one didn t While this book was chock a block with melodrama it failed to resolve a major story element in satisfactory way slight spoiler the hero NEVER apologizes to the heroine Not one verbal or clearly communicated I ve been such a dumbass I m sorry Instead the heroine realizes how much the hero really loves her through incredibly fast and loose reasoning based on assumptions she makes about things she overhears and only based on assumptions she makes about things she overhears and only the very last pages of the very last chapter I was not convincedThe narrative was really confusing awkward sentence and paragraph structuring lead the reader in the wrong direction in terms of who is saying what to whom and who is doing what during the scene A character who is part of a moment of antagonism that Kane or Houston struggle against makes such a uick about face in their opposition it gave me whiplash This happened so often it was exhausting and predictableThis storytelling makes me think that there was a lack of confidence in the narrative that they relied on soap opera like switches to keep the reader interested We re 80s popular romances written with soap opera storytelling structure in mindI appreciate that there are many modern romance writers who write historical romance who are better at cutting back on the extraneous melodrama in favor of nothing but the most absolute important high points and that they work to make the moments of opposition feel authenticThe mysterious hints at what is happening with Blair and Lee in the simultaneously occurring plot of Twin of Fire were distracting and pointed wel.
