    You really need to read the third book, Always, to understand all that is going on.Darci's husband, Adam, and his sister have been kidnapped. Darci has to send her daughter and neice to family in Colorado to be away from the Hillbilly Honey accusations that Darci killed her husband for money. Her father is traveling everywhere looking for clues...and even with all Darci's powers she can not find her true love. Lincoln is sent by her mother to search for his son...maybe this search in an old slave plantation will lead to clues for finding Adam.330 pages

    Right away I was thrown off when one of the crucial characters from the first book was gone (with the snap of a finger). However, I loved the story! It was exciting, funny, and cute. Plus, I liked the ending, which is good because I was disappointed with the ending for the first book in the trilogy.

    This is the second book in the Forever series. It was good. I didn't like it as much as the first book. The main character is looking for her husband who has been kidnapped by a bad witch. She must find him before he is killed.

    The absence of Adam is quite sad.

    A romance novel with no romance?! More of a sci-fi book since the main character Darci has supernatural powers.

    Reread... "Darf das Buch in meinem Bücherregal bleiben oder weg damit? "Handlung:FRÜHER .....Das Buch beginnt mit einer Geschichte von zwei Schwestern und einem Spiegel, bei der die erstere sich die Pulsadern aufschneidet und die zweite dann böse wird, als sie draufkommt, dass sie selbst denn Spiegel aufgrund ihrer verlorenen Jungfräulichkeit nicht mehr benützen kann.JETZT.... bewirbt die zarte unscheinbare Darci Monroe sich für einen Job bei Millionär Adam Montgomery. Seine Hellseherin rät ihm sie einzustellen. Wird er mit Darcis Hilfe seine dunkle Vergangenheit bezwingen können?Meine Meinung:Ich konnte mich an den Inhalt des Buches überhaupt nicht mehr erinnern bzw. wusste dass ich es damals nicht so berrauschend fand. Der Anfang hat vielleicht noch einen gewissen Unterhaltungswert. Aber das Buch funktionierte für mich auch dieses Mal nicht. Irgendwie passte für mich nichts zusammen.Die jungfräuliche Darcy, bietet Adam schon bei ihrem ersten oder zweiten Treffen an, wenn er Sex suche, dass sie ihm zur Verfügung stehe. Und nicht nur einmal bietet sie sich ihm an - ständig! Und auch noch auf ziemlich platte, uncharmante, witzlose Weise. Generell gefiel mir das Zusammenspiel der Charaktere nicht, die Dialoge, die Erzählweise.Und auch die Liebesbeziehung der beiden Protas ging für mich gar nicht. Null Funken. Blöd war auch, dass sie ihn mit ihrer Gabe zu manipuliert hat (ihm etw. suggerierte, befahl z.B. sie zu küssen)Darci hat mich eigentlich nur genervt. Und dass es diesen Putnam, ihren Verlobten, dann auch wirklich gab! Ich dachte sie hätte ihn sich ausgedacht. - Nein nein ein!Die letzten 100 Seiten hab ich mehr oder weniger überflogen.Und dann das Ende... es gab keins .. sondern einen Epilog - ein Jahr danach. Ergebnis: --> Definitiv raus aus meinem Bücherregal! So ein Platzverschwender!1.5 Sterne

    Ms. Deveraux has written yet another wonderful romance, but had added a touch of the paranormal to her story. To my surprise and enjoyment this addition worked out beautifully.Darci's husband is missing after a mysterious accident and even her psychic powers haven't been able to help her locate him. Then appears a man at her door named Link, a famous Hollywood actor with a missing son. Darci may be his only chance at finding his son alive. Will Darci over come her own grief and if so, will she do it in time to find a missing little boy?Ms. Deveraux has never ceased to amaze me. Her power of description makes even the most abstract thoughts and ideas seem real. Her character's are always believable, and original. It will be interesting to see how this trilogy pans out. I can't wait to read the others in the series.

    Favorite authorI have loved everything Jude has written. Even though we have never met, she probably would be a great friend, if we had. Doesn't make sense, I know, lol. Anyway, another great book, thanks!!!

    Es la segunda parte de una serie de libros, si no se leen el primero y los que siguen, se vuelve complejo entender la historia.Poderes impresionantes, que llegan a forzar las situaciones que enfrentan los personajes y un final temporal predestinadamente feliz.

    For full review, please visit readersedyn (blogspot) Hmmm … I find myself completely and utterly annoyed with this book. So annoyed, in fact, that I find I have a deep seeded need to read the 3rd book in the series just to assure myself that Ms. Deveraux has not lost her dang mind. I mean how in the name of all that is holy do you break up your main characters in such a dreadful way and then try to place a different guy in Adam's place? Well not really in his place, but damn … kind of in his place. I feel betrayed. My emotions are on a roller coaster and I am now cursing the day I decided to read this trilogy...........This story seemed like a bit of a farce. There was definite attraction between Linc and Darci, but knowing her deep love for Adam, the whole thing seemed wrong. Even when Linc propositions Darci, despite the lighthearted tone, I just couldn't get on board with it. Luckily, the entire story did not focus on the connection between Darci and Linc. Overall the story wasn't all that bad. Given the darkness introduced in the first book, I expected worse this time around but such was not the case. The first book lacked the smoldering intimate scenes, whereas the second included a scene with a random character that just didn't make a whole lot of sense. I mean, it made sense, but I just didn't really care about the interaction. The main parts of this story involve past wrongs done to souls long gone, but still tied to the earth. Rights must be wronged, relationships and familial ties must be understood, and the key player (linc's son) has to be found. But even beyond all of the revelations that will be unfolded lies an even deeper secret which involves Darci's power. She will be tested and unless she proves herself worthy, all could be lost despite the good she has done. In the end, even well intentioned people can stumble. With Darci's axis on tilt over the past several months, she is extremely vulnerable to weakness.And after all of that, I probably haven't explained much to you. Let's say that some things in the story worked while others did not. That said, those who had read the first book prior would likely be more affected by the components that seemed off than someone just coming to the series. Darci remains true to her character in the face of much heartache and temptation, but I missed the fun-loving, care-free Darci of FOREVER. Her character has definitely evolved quite a lot from the last time we saw her. I only hope that she comes back to us in the final book. Linc added a bit of much needed charm to the seriousness of the story and brought a breath of roguish fun with him. Also interesting is the switch between chapters allowing Darci to share her feelings and then Linc to do the same. These shared thoughts provide a better sense of each character and their emotions throughout their journey together. Despite my complaints, I still enjoyed the book. I cannot say what role this book plays within the trilogy until I finish book three, but I am hopeful that it contains essential information that will better aid the reader in assimilating the final book.(Paperback purchased for personal library.)

    I enjoyed this second part of the trilogy more then I did the first book and while its an easy read and a fun read, I was able to put it down and it took me awhile to finish it. I like the general theme of this book and the setting, but it left me wondering like exactly how much Darci's mother knew about her daughter from a very early age and what exactly if any power her mother might have. There is a point in the book where you think, wow, she is very perceptive, she must have some kind of power. While understanding that Darci is devastated by the turns this book has taken, I was a bit sad that she focused all her energy onto finding Adam and Bo. Like I said, part of me gets but another part is going, hey, you have a kid here who also has experienced a loss. There were many times in the book I thought for sure Darci was going to cave and allow Linc to have his wicked way with her. The end of the book, still leaves the reader wondering about Adam and what is going to happen in Darci's life. I really enjoyed the last chapter and epilogue of this book. Lot of twists here at the end. You gain some answers but it leaves you with new ones as well. I am looking forward to starting the 3rd book, hoping to gain some closure to this story for myself and for Darci and her family as well.

    This is insanity to the highest level! I felt like Martin, hanged on a tree branch, waiting for what awaits me! Might as well hope that I was hanged literally because of the suspense and thrill that I am feeling right now. I literally slapped my face and covered it while giggling because of the excitement I felt (Who can be weirder than Darci, right?)!!! Goodness, but the rush! The blood was as if running, rushing through my veins! This is the nicest, most lovable feeling ever! At first, I was terrified to find out that Adam was missing. I was like, "A Montgomery? One of our gorgeous Montgomerys? Missing?" The questions kept running inside my head. "How? How did it happen?" "Why?" "Will he show up again?" "Is he dead?" But that one page made me scream! Not in exasperation, not in boredom, not in anxiousness, not in frustration with regards to how the story is going but I was deeply pleased and excited! I am obviously not a fan of the stories with Paranormal Elements injected in it but this story is making me one- a "Paranormal Romance" fan that is.I am certainly, UNDENIABLY looking forward in reading the last of the series, ALWAYS.GODSPEED!

    Again, I had "high hopes" that this second book in the series would hopefully be a good story, even though fake and far fetched. It turned out to be a mish-mash of supernatural, reading minds, feeling thoughts, trances, and ghosts. Darci's husband and sister-in-law, or step-mother, whatever you want to call her, are missing. Somehow through Darci's mother, a movie star, Linc, is sent to her because his son is missing. Linc has never even met his son, or his son's mother, and it turns out the mother and Linc's agent are supposedly killed, but really aren't. They are led to a plantation house where two sisters run the place, putting on fake seances, but we learn later that they are using Linc's son who has powers of healing, as well as being able to make people sick....even to the point that they die....which would come in handy if you want an inheritance, etc. By the end of the story, Darci's husband and his sister are still missing, so I guess I'm going to read the third book....

    Darci's husband is missing. She needs to help famous actor Linc find his son then she will be able to find her husband. These books are all about witches and ghosts. The romance part is weird, and kind of awkward. I think the characters are obsessed with sex, and have a hard time controlling their impulses. This is not for teens. I felt uncomfortable at times, and didn't think the characters were well developed. I didn't feel a connection to the relationships. The only thing they had in common was their sexual desire, and they were both searching for someone. There was a connection later, but I guess I just didn't like this series. Not a clean story, and I just wish the characters had more moral value. I guess I need to read someone else's review to be able to organize my discomfort with theses books. Weird. I'm at a loss for words. That doesn't usually happen.

    It was good. Kind of slow at the beginning, and it took me a lot of time of finish it because nothing happened. I really liked the first book, so I was looking for a continuity of Darci and Adam love story, which I really really loved. But starting reading this book I knew it was completely different from what I expected. Starting with Adam and Bo kidnapped, Darci lonely in her house, a lot of gossiping around her. Then Darci meets Lincoln Aimes. The good part is when they go to 13 Elms and they find out the history of the place.What I didn't like is that Darci makes little progress in finding Adam, and I want her to find him and be happily ever after. I already started reading the 3rd book, so let's see what happens.

    This book was kind of a supernatural mystery with romantic elements - hard to classify. Not my usual type of book but I know some people love this author so I thought I'd give it a chance. Like breezygirl, I found this book had a few too many ghosts and spirits for my liking. I had a hard time relating to the main characters - Darci, a petite woman with supernatural powers whose husband is missing and Linc, a handsome male actor whose son is missing. Despite this, I found parts of the story entertaining but I have to say that the ending was way over the top for me (too supernatural) and was almost a cross between fantasy & science fiction.

    Finished this one last night... Not my normal Jude Deveraux... what I thought would be a romance novel turned into a super-natural mystery. oh well... I guess she's branching out.This was a pretty good read. Darci is still discovery who she is and what she can do with her "powers" There is a lot of character developement that will carry over into what I can only assume will be a 'series' of books... as the main plot did not get completed in this book.http://www.bookcrossing.com/journal/1...

    This is the second part of the Forever Trilogy, and I really debated where to put this book. In the end I decided it should stay in the Romance section because although it was a story of a man looking for his son through paranormal circumstances ultimately it was a love story. In this book the hero from the first part is missing and a new hero appears. This is a story about love lost, and love found. The story of a woman looking for her lost love and a man learning about the love of a father for his child.

    The plot thickens as we follow Darci while she explores her psychic abilities. She is searching for her missing husband when she begins to help an actor who is searching for his son. Darci and Linc become friends but there is no romance in this installment of the series. Darci is married to Adam and knows that he is still alive, although she can't find him even with her powers. New characters are brought in who seem to know more about Darci's abilities than she does and the last part of the book seems to set up future installment(s) of the series.

    Deveraux does paranormal well. She tried hard at mystery, had some not as successful attempts there, but this paranormal series was a pleasure to read - meaning, I had trouble putting it down. After reading the first in the series, it took me a while to pick up the next two because the romance was complete, so that meant no romance in these, and I'm reading Deveraux's books for romance, so in concept, I wasn't excited. But she mixed in enough sexual tension and some vicarious sex to satisfy that need, and the mystery she built in the book moved it along nicely.

  • Rhapsody

    Not as good as the first of the series, but still quite fun. My biggest complaint is that it's written in the first person, but alternating between the two main characters. Sometimes I'd get confused trying to remember who the "I" was referring to from one chapter to the next. I wouldn't have thought I'd be able to enjoy a sequel in which Adam has disappeared and Darci's counterpart is some drop-dead gorgeous actor, but it was really pretty good. I'm psyched for the third book.

  • Sharon

    Not my favorite Jude Deveraux. The story was choppy and hard to follow in places. I really didn't like the male lead character - he was vain and selfish and too focused on sex rather than a friendship or professional association. Darci went from being fun and quirky to whiny and depressed. I found them both to be annoying. I didn't like the ending. It didn't resolve the Adam issue and was an obvious opening to the 3rd in this series.

    Darci was roped in by her mother to help Lincoln Ames a movie star to help find his kidnapped son. His agent was killed in a fire and records stolen from Lincoln's home safe. He went to Darci's home in Virginia to talk into this job. He was going with her no matter what. While going to Alabama to a special resort for women only Linc had to play as gay. When they got there they found more than they bargained for but they came to find it was worth it.

    It took me a long time to enjoy this book. It is the second in a trilogy and I have not read the first one. If I had read the first one, I most likely would not have read this one. Will not be reading the third. I am uncomfortable with the concept of people having secret powers...mind readers, controlling other peoples thoughts etc. Just not my thing.

  • Kim

    This was just ok. I found Linc a very unlikeable character for atleast the first half, so I wasn't really enjoying it and just wanted them to get on finding Adam and Bo . But in the end it all made sense. Inmich preferred the first of this trilogyto this one. Iwill probably read the third just to finish it out. Hopefullythree times the charm will be true.

    Number 2 in a trilogy. In number one Darci and Adam are brought together and fall in love. In this one Adam disappears (kidnapped) along with his sister. And a new man, Linc, hot and sexy actor, is introduced but not as love interest for Darci. Too bad for Darci because he sounds HOT!! He is looking for his lost son. So they search together.

    This book is really good, but it's your typical mystery. There are some really bad people an some (especially one) awesome ones. You don't get to meet "Just Henry" until towards the end of the book, but I just fell in love with him! You can tell this book is part of a series (not like the first book), when you finish it, you can't help but want (need?) more!

    started this book and then ran into talk of witches--oh my, had no idea what this book was really about or that it was part of a trilogy. I rarely don't finish a book but I won't finish this one. Not my cup of tea. Life is too short and there are way too many other books out there I'd rather spend my time reading. Next time I'll read the reviews :)
