Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Jude Deveraux returns to her roots in this sweeping historical romance with a dazzling story that spans two continents and unites two people who are separated by class, wealth, and education.
In 1766 Scotland, the laird of the clan, Angus McTern, has everything he wants in life. That is, until Edilean Talbot shows up. Breathtakingly beautiful and born of privilege, Edilean represents everything Angus despises. Still, she dazzles him, and when Angus can no longer hide his feelings, she rejects him, leaving him deeply wounded and humiliated. Soon, though, Edilean needs his help to reclaim the gold she inherited from her father. At first Angus refuses, but her haunting beauty and her tears convince him to put aside his pride.
However, when Angus tries to intervene, he is accused of kidnapping and theft. To avoid being prosecuted, he must leave behind all that he knows and escape with Edilean to America. There they will overcome almost insurmountable obstacles as the man who claims the gold for his own endlessly pursues them. Despite all that tries to keep them apart, Angus and Edilean also find a love as wild and free as the land itself. Filled with passion, humor, exquisite detail, and pulse-pounding adventure, Days of Goldis Jude Deveraux at her best.

Critic Reviews

"After dozens of novels, Deveraux has a sure hand evoking plucky heroines, dastardly villains and irresistible heroes, as well as a well-rounded supporting cast… the pace moves quickly and the romance sparks with enough voltage to keep readers turning pages." ( Publishers Weekly)
"With the promise of future books about surprising and interesting Edilean, veteran storyteller Deveraux incorporates her trademark sweet and salty characters into a pair of entertaining romances, one past, one present, to create one of her most fun and pleasing tales." ( Booklist)
"Family ties, small town values and unexpected love in a picturesque settings have made Deveraux a longtime bestselling author, so it's no surprise that she again delivers.... Readers will find it hard to resist the charms of Edilean, the manor house, the town, the woman of many secrets and, of course, the series to come." ( Publishers Weekly)

Days of Gold

Any additional comments?

This is one of the better Jude Devereaux romances. The chemistry between lead characters is great. Although there is adult content, I wouldn't hesitate for a teen interested in historical romance to read. I'm not sure where this story fits in the chronology of exactly when it was released in the series by Devereaux, but it is the background story of the town named Edeline This town appears in Lavender Morning, and if I'd known, I would have read Days of Gold first.

The real star in this story is the reader, Davina Porter. She is, hands down, my favorite female reader and I have no doubt I enjoyed the story partially because of her narration. Her diction is superb, the male voices excellent. I highly recommend anyone interested in the world of audio books listen to Davina at least once. In addition to Devereaux books, Davina Porter is the reader for the Outlander series by Gabaldon. The lead male character in Days of Gold is a man named Angus. He has the same voice as Jamie in the Outlander books ... but that won't bother you, in that both characters are authentically represented as Scotsman, kilts included with the brrr of their Scottish brogue.

It's all in this story, the reluctant hero, the feisty beauty, forbidden love, and a wonderful supporting cast of good guys and bad guys. Fun listen, and not likely my last Jude Devereaux.

This book reminded me of the outlander series

This book was like Diana Gabaldons Outlander series. It was a good book and I recommend it. The only problem with buying another in the series is that the characters are all different. Instead of following people it seems to follow a town that the original character founded and named. The biggest problem I see in buying another in the series is the change in narrator's. You just can't replace Davina Porter.

I do not recommend.

What would have made Days of Gold better?

Unfortunately this story was poorly written. The author dwelt on a problem ( and there where many) for pages and pages and then all of a sudden there was a solution. There was no change there was just a solution. Then at the end when some of the decisions where explained it was so far fetched that it was ridiculous.

Would you ever listen to anything by Jude Deveraux again?

Probably not.

Have you listened to any of Davina Porter’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes. She was good.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I was annoyed and disappointed that I paid money to listen to this book.

I have gotten used to Davina

after initially disliking Davina's voice I have come to appreciate her ability to do any number of voices. she's great to listen to when you get used to it.
