    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....

    What disappointed you about Days of Gold?

    Great performance, weak story. That just about sums it up and I don't have too much else to say. Perhaps, I will add that the main characters are daft and irritating, and when Angus goes off to do his own thing, the story becomes so disconnected from the story and without apparent point that I could barely pay attention to what was going on.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jude Deveraux again?

    Not likely, unless someone recommends me one with passion.


    What about Davina Porter’s performance did you like?

    She is an amazing narrator. The two main annoying characters were even perfectly described with annoying personification.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Days of Gold?

    Most of part two.

    Young interior designer Ava O'Shea has no idea what awaits her at the Manor. A run-of-the-mill consultation with a stodgy country gent seems likely, but what Ava finds instead is Jesse Ward - a devastatingly handsome, utterly confident, pleasure-seeking playboy who knows no boundaries. Ava doesn't want to be attracted to this man, and yet she can't control the overwhelming desire that he stirs in her. She knows that her heart will never survive him and her instinct is telling her to run, but Jesse is not willing to let her go. He wants her and is determined to have her.

    Any additional comments?

    My eyes must have rolled every 3 mins. Both main characters' personality deficiency, while such flaws are necessary to connect the readers to the characters, was so unreasonably neurotic to the point of ridiculous that made the story unconvincing. Obsessive possessive control freak male can be sexy, and I'm sure that's what the author was going after, but in the case of Jesse, made him plain intolerable. I couldn't muster up a liking for the guy, and his counterpart's tolerance just ridiculous.
