Now from Encore— New York Times bestselling author Jude Deveraux returns to the sweeping historical romance beloved by her fans in this dazzling story set in 1766 and spanning two continents. Angus McTern is respected by the men of his clan and adored by the women. He takes his duties as laird seriously and has everything he wants in life—until Edilean Talbot shows up. Breathtakingly beautiful and born of privilege, Edilean needs Angus’s help to reclaim the gold she inherited from her father. The treasure is bound for America, but when Angus tries to seize it, he’s accused of kidnapping and theft and has to escape with Edilean to the new country. There they discover almost insurmountable obstacles, and a love as wild and free as the land itself.The second book in the multi-generational Edilean series that began with the contemporary novel Lavender Morning, Days of Gold is filled with humor, passion, exquisite detail, and pulse-pounding adventure. Stirring and masterfully rendered, it’s the kind of epic story that so many novelists aspire to write, but only Jude Deveraux can create so well.
Jude Deveraux was born in Fairdale, Kentucky as Jude Gilliam. After earning a degree in art from Murray State University and studying teaching at the University of New Mexico, she taught fifth grade in Santa Fe, New Mexico until her first book, “The Land of Enchantment”, was accepted for publication by Avon books.
The American Romance novel author is well known for her historical romances and has forty-one New York Times bestsellers to date, including “Moonlight in the Morning” and “A Knight in Shining Armor”. There are more than sixty million copies of her books in print worldwide. Deveraux, who was described as "a popular romance author" by the New York Times in 2009, appeared as herself in the 1987 romance novelist documentary “Where the Heart Roams”.
Jude has lived in England and Egypt as well as in several American states, and she has traveled around the world. In her spare time, she likes to read nonfiction and murder mysteries, work in her garden, and in her boxing class, she enjoys showing much younger males that she can throw a mean right cross.
I like Jude Deveraux but this read like my 5th grader wrote it. the sentences were choppy and stilted. I thought it would get better as i read along but it did not. I could not get past the 3rd chapter. I wonder if someone else did write it.
