    About "Jude Knight"

    1. Jude Knight

      My goal is to give you stories to transport you to another time, another place, where you can enjoy adventure and romance, thrill to trials and challenges, uncover secrets and solve mysteries, and delight in a happy ending.I ve been telling stories all my life making up serial tales to amuse my friends and children, imagining sequels to books that have moved me and left me wanting , occasionally submitting short stories to magazines and the radio, starting than a dozen novels set in different times and places.I have devoted most of the last forty years to a career in commercial writing and raising a large family most recently as grandmother in residence while a daughter was out of action for three years Me and my own personal romantic hero, with whom I have shared those forty years, now live with two cats and frequent visitors in a small town in rural New Zealand.I wrote and published my first historical romance in 2014, and now have the wind in my sails and a head full of strong determined heroines, heroes with the sense to appreciate them, and villains you ll love to loathe.

    1. A wonderful collection of 3 short stories & 1 novella by the talented Jude Knight. The short stories are written from ideas provided by winners of her contests. They provide things they would like to read about & Jude writes the story. Everything from a “dead” viscount who secretly works for the crown investigating smugglers only to find that his childhood friend is among those labeled as a smuggler – a female smuggler. When the one he is looking for comes looking for her can he pr [...]


    2. I enjoyed some of the stories better than others. My favourites, because they were unusual and well described, were about a lady who is an escaping slave in the American south; and about a young woman married off to a blind peer who is being held captive in a British castle. If that doesn't whet your appetite, nothing will. Go for it, read and enjoy. Variety is the spice of life. And love conquers all could be the motto of the author.



    3. Good selection of short storiesI enjoyed this collection of short stories. The characters were well developed and the plots were different from other "romance" novels I have read. None of these short stories seemed short to me. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for several good quick reads.


    4. A book of many storirsEach story kept me reading. Hard to put down. Surprise ending to each storyline. A must read if you like short stories. Would love to read the book that follow


    5. Short storiesA group of short romance stories, all sweet, with happy endings. I enjoyed reading them. I usually prefer novels, but I knew what to expect with these and they were nice for a break from !y usual reading.


    6. The bitsThis book is more like a collection of precludes to different books. Each one is very short. I got bored with the tie bits and quit reading half way through.


    7. Hand-Turned Tales by Jude KnightThree Short Stories and a Novella The following stories are like a sampler pack for the author's writing. The stories were written for winners of a contest. They gave some names and ideas and the author wrote these stories from them.The Raven's LadyFelix Maddox returns home after he was thought dead. Under a false name he has one last jobnd a smuggler, the Black Fox. Could the villain actually be the girl he left behind eight years ago?All That GlistersThomas O'Br [...]


    8. his wonderful set of stories make a perfect evenings reading. Each one in its way is excellent. Objectively the best may be Kidnapped to Freedom's brief glimpse into slavery escapes in the American Civil War. All That Glister's sweet story set against a New Zealand gold rush was my own favorite. I enjoyed the characters interactions under the nose of the heroine's horrid uncle, but even more i liked watching her grow until she took her life in her own hands. The bird in Raven's Lady tickled me m [...]


    9. Having never read Jude Knight I was anxious to try her samples of books. I read through the 3 of 4 stories in one sitting. I have to admit I enjoyed most The Prisoners of Wyvern Castle. The story of 2 young people forced to wed and clueless on their wedding night, with how Rupert compensated and his actions without even knowing what he was doing, that was a breath of fresh air! Next I liked the Raven's Lady. The story of a woman smuggler and how her actions saved the day! All that Glisters was t [...]


    10. As I already adore Jude's writing, I knew that I would enjoy this book with three short stories and one novella. It did not disappoint!Such interesting and unique characters-a raven, a blind hero, a pirate and a success in the gold rush. Each story is unique and offers a sample of Jude's wonderful writing and imagination.My favorite was The Prisoners of Wyvern Castle. Since it is a prequel to Embracing Prudence, a 2016 release, I am excited for the continuing story.


    11. This is my first read of Jude Knight and I absolutely loved all the tales. I really enjoyed reading The Prisoners of Wyvern Castle and All That Glisters. A beautiful collection of well put together short stories. Each story is different but you can tell that they all have the same style that Jude Knight incorporates into her stories. You will definitely not be disappointed. These stories were marvelously written. I cant wait to read more of her books. Love her storytelling uniqueness.


    12. A great collection of short stories from a masterful storyteller. I've read all this author's other published books, really enjoyed them and this one did not disappoint.Believable characters, plots that draw you in, and a fantastic sense of time and place. Looking forward to reading more of her work.


    13. This was a fun collection of short stories. I liked the variety in locales and in the social status of the characters. Each one ended on a hopeful note, leaving the distinct feeling that each couple would face the challenges of their chosen futures together and make a happy life whatever may come.


    14. An varied set of 4 short stories Jude Knight offers 4 very different stories: British smugglers, New Zealand gold mining, American slave rescue, and British familial treachery.
