I am almost finished with Wishes by Jude Deveraux and I love it. I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations by other books by her. Does she do quite a  bit of historical romance? I like those the best.

my faves of hers is of course the velvet series (Velvet Promise, Highland Velvet, Velvet Song, Velvet Angel) and The Black Lyon.

Oh, oh -- A Knight in Shining Armor! That is my all-time favorite of hers, and of time travel romances.

Not sure what she's writing these days, but her early books (that I know of) are all historicals.

The Maiden is set in 13th-century England. The Taming takes place during ... I think ... The War of the Roses. The Raider is set during the American Revolution. Lost Lady/Counterfiet Lady are late 18th-century. And Twin of Fire/Twin of Ice take place in the same setting/time period as Wishes, if I'm remembering right.

Always meant to grab more of hers, but that handful is all I ever got around to. Hope that helps a little.

I loved Twin of Fire and Twin of Ice!  These two are on my keeper shelf because I love them so much.  She has a lot of good stuff.

She is also one of my fav authors and have most of her historicals cant seem to be able to part with them yet.  Just reread a knight in shining armor  i also have wishes and have reread that a few times. and i almost never reread books but her books seem to have a special appeal to me.

She has quite a few older historicals - I love them all!  I'm not sure if her newer stuff is historical or not.

She's my favorite author currently. I really enjoyed A Knight In Shining Armor and Legend.

I picked up a book of hers at goodwill a few months back. The Mulberry Tree. I found it to be very BORING, and didn't find the romance in it very, hmm, romantic I guess. I skimmed through much of it. Maybe I'll have to try her again. I like time travel romances, so maybe I should try Knight in Shining Armor.
