Jude Deveraux, the New York Times 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.
