She began writing inand published her first book, The Enchanted Land under the name Jude Deveraux. Heroes also tend to threaten violence to the heroine, which is always a bit of a turn-off to a modern reader. The ‘villain’ in the piece is stereotyped in a borderline racist way, and there is no satisfying denouement to the arc of the villain’s story.
Book review: Jude Deveraux’s *The Enchanted Land*
May 12, Nicky rated it it was ok. Morgan truly had a crazy journey from start to finish and it kept me interested the whole time. This book is a romance that introduces us to New Mexico in the early days of settlement.
About now, I thought I am already aware of the cliches in a paperback romance novel. But since all this happened in the first quarter of the book, there must be many, many obstacles for the them to endure. I care if they find one another again. Lists with This Book. All things are perfect. My favorite part of The Enchanted Land is that part after Seth realizes what Morgan means to him and that she did not betray him.
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. He has a tender and romantic side that made me sigh and wonder where I could find one just like him. Characters stumble down and wallow with their own griefs and fears.
But the worst, really worst part comes at the end when Seth decides that he has to take care of Morgan and by take care I mean lecturing her and making all decisions for her because she’s weak and “[some women] needed someone to control their life” May 22, Janani rated it it was ok Shelves: She meets Seth Colter at a ball.
He sneaks into her bedroom, seduces her, throws money on her dresser afterward, and leaves without letting her explain her ordeal. Absolutely nothing about either character’s behavior makes any sense. She hears that he has a ranch in New Mexico.
Some did, tge, so the book was saved from being too harsh on th Gritty book about the early days of settling New Mexico and the gold rush days in California. It is a quick read, but enjoyable at the same time. Everyone has to misunderstand everything anyone says, feel hurt by it, stew over it, and encganted everything for the duration of that mini-plot. Oct 03, Jen rated it did not like it. I literally race to the end of the book each time I get to this part, even though I obviously know how it will end.
The Enchanted Land Book Summary and Study Guide
The path forced upon Morgan is ugly and the upshot is that she believes Seth to be dead and he believes Morgan has betrayed him. It’s so over-the-top that I don’t even know what to say. And apparently, men listen up now, how you do that is by staging a fake kidnapping of a woman who has already been kidnapped twice, gagging her, making her think she’s going to be raped, and then dveeraux her naked so you can lecture her about what a mess she’s made of her life and blame her for everything terrible that has happened between you.
I just didn’t like it very much. When he finds her will he be able to convince her to forgive him his mistrust? She tends to let things happen, then wait for Seth or someone else to rescue her. That is where she needs to l Morgan has been living with her aunt and uncle for the past two years since her mother died.
At first, yes, you’ll become totally addicted to the story for all the sweetness and all the love the hero, Seth, has for his little wife, Morgan. I finally read it and it was a quick couldn’t put it down romance. Each and every character has their own flaws.
