Very Good Series, ebooks have flaws

First let me say I love it when Ms. Deveraux writes books in series, and the Edilean series is very good. I recently purchased a NookColor, which I love. I was excited to again start reading Ms. Deveraux's books again. But I have to say I am a bit disappointed. I've read the five books currently available in the six book "Edilean" series. I'm not sure if Barnes and Noble is responsible for my disappointments or if Ms. Deveraux is responsible, but I believe it is a combination of the two. In the first book I found a reference to a character and the name was wrong, page 177 "Joce and Luke", should be "Ingrid and Luke". Throughout each book every time the word "historical" is used, the word "an" is before it, this is grammatically wrong, and hard to read time after time. These are probably issues that should be direct to Ms. Deveraux. However, having the ebooks numbered incorrectly, whose fault is that? I just finished #5 which has a preview for #3 which clearly indicates that "Scarlet Nights" #3 is after "The Scent of Jasmine" #5. Also, on every page of the story portion of the ebook version of The Scent of Jasmine in the top left corner is "Judge deveraux" so the name of the author is wrong on every page and the author's last name is not capitalized. Who is responsible for that? Now let's talk about ebook number #4 in this series, the fault of both Barnes and Noble and Ms. Deveraux. Having read five of the six books in this series, I have to ask, what were these people thinking? First #4 is not anything more than a seventy page short story, and completely unnecessary to the series as a whole. The enhanced portion of this book, which by the way this book is only available in NookColor format, is video. I was hopeful that the videos would add to the story. They do not. To make matters worse, the videos are all of poor quality and have a very amateurish feel to them. Again I have to ask, what were these people thinking? If I was buying this series as regular paper versions, I would be extremely upset that book #4 in the series was unavailable to me. The story series is very good, and I still love my NookColor and Ms. Deveraux is still one of my all time fav romance writers (I've read probably more than 20/25 of her books), but I am disappointed in the execution of these books to electronic format. Please someone tell me where is the quality control and editors when these conversions are done?

Too Predictable

I knew after the first two chapters how this book would end. I normally love Jude Deveraux's books and have bought several. Glad I borrowed this one from the library. Not worth the price.

    Why I Enjoyed "Days of Gold"

    I was not, until within this past year a reader of novels of any type. I had never been able to find a story that captivated me long enough for me to stick with it until the end. Well, finally about a year ago, I finally found the right book. From then on, I have been on a "terror" of sorts, reading several other novels. Some I have already re-read. Dayf of Gold was given to me by my sister. She had borrowed it from a co-worker & we were passing along novels. My sister said she liked it, but didn't go into a lot of detail. I said that I would try it. It only took me a day-day 1/2 to finish it. Once I got into the story, it did indeed capture my full attention. Even though it is set in the 1800's, it still brought forth a lot of special feelings & thoughts. It actually re-triggered the need to for me to start work on family ancestry. It has always been said that my family decended from Germany, Ireland, England & SCOTLAND. I believe this story truly touched me on a deeper level because of this connection. I have already confirmed 3 of the 4, with the Scottish connection still not completely confirmed, however, many of the Scotts first traveled to Ireland before coming to America. I'm just trying to find that specific connection. But even still, I am very excited about what I have already found. So thanks to my sister for passing this novel along to me. I really enjoyed it. I have now even purhcased it to include it in my newly started book collection. My sister & I have since discussed this novel & she stated she felt the same type of draw to the story also. We strongly believe it is because of our heritage. If you like a little fiestiness, playfulness & definite unrequitted romance, then I believe that you will enjoy this novel also.

    just okay, not her best work

    This was an okay story but certainly not her best work. It was one of those books you could easily put down and then later find it difficult to choose between picking it back up to continue reading or washing the dishes.

    Days of Gold

    Not as good of work by Jude Deveraux. The story seems as if it's been thrown together too quickly. The plot is overused and the outcome easy to guess. The characters do not pull you into the story. Overall, a disappointment on this second in a series.

    this book is the second in a series of three. Can't wait for the next. The first was on modern times,the second on past history how everything started. Wonder what the third will be about.
