A particularly good effort from Ms. Nora. I really liked both the hero and heroine in this one. Characters were well drawn, even the more minor ones. Sense of place was great. This is one author whose quality never seems to head downhill, no matter how fast she writes. Wish I had her combination of imagination, talent, and speed. ( )

Jude Deveraux is an author I first read many years ago and while some of her books definitely do not age well I do think the Velvet Montgomery Annuals Quadrilogy books do continue to be basically enjoyable to read. I have always enjoyed the interactions her characters have had and the places she sets the story. The plot can be a bit thin but overall I think it's a good beach read. ( )

Started slow but picked up at the end. ( )

I enjoyed the book. Calla was a strong character, stronger than she realized. At least Ford saw that. ( )

Tribute is an interesting story where the past comes to the present, and shows how one little mistake can lead to an uncertain future that may not be escaped. Although easy to get into, the ending is lacking, and leaves the reader wanting more as to what happened at the most critical part of the story. ( )

The sensuality in this prose is too lush to bother with sex. The dialogue and dream sequences are there strictly to establish plot points. And the plot, the plot is there to … to what? To remind readers of their desire for fame and beauty (and a rehabbed house), comfort them about their sexual anxiety (best to skip it, eh?), their sense that our own real non-hallucinogenically intense world is too complex to be interesting. Cilla longs only for the normalcy her readers already possess (a wealthy and well-appointed version, of course, because who wants to read about poor people?). And her readers, presumably, long only for the next Nora Roberts novel.
 
Roberts really knows how to tell a great story.
