Promises is a new video book, or vook, by Jude Deveraux. The Promises vook is an exclusive showcase title for a entirely new innovation that blends book content and video into a single complete story.
Ethne McTern, descended from an ancient Scottish family, knew exactly what she wanted in life: to observe everything and write about it. Unfortunately, in 18th century Williamsburg, Virginia, this is not an acceptable profession for a woman, so she is forced to write under a male pseudonym. She cannot envision ever finding a man who will understand and appreciate her passion.
Jamie Armitage is a son of the wealthiest man in the country and his family is determined that he marry a woman chosen by them. In order to avoid yet more arranged meetings, he escapes to the unchartered territories of America, where he has become a renowned explorer. Although the loneliness of his trips has made him long for someone to share them with, he cant imagine what woman could bear the hardships and dangers of his adventures.
In the summer of 1800, to help a friend, Ethne agrees to tutor Jamies nieces and nephews, who are spending the summer in Gracewell, South Carolina -- and her trip coincides with one of Jamies visits home. When his unruly horse nearly tramples Ethne but she isnt in the least upset, Jamie makes up his mind that she is the woman for him. Now he just needs to persuade her.
But in Jamies relentless pursuit of Ethne, they stumble on a mystery that has remained unsolved for years. They discover a long buried corpse, but they also find a ring so valuable that people are willing to kill for it. In order to track down the rightful owner, Jamie has to face a possible murderer and Ethne will be forced to risk her life to warn him of the danger.
With the Promises vook you can read the passionate, powerful story of young Ethne McTern and the adventurer Jamie Armitage, and watch their romance unfold in spectacular, immersive video. Promises will be available ONLY in the Vook format.
An entirely new concept, a vook blends text and video into a single, complete story. With a vook you can read your book, watch videos that highlight key moments in the story view visual how-to's and connect with authors and other readers. And you do it all in one place!
