That is how I buy my books and I have had no problem. You don't need to use alwaysVPN to download the books only during the purchase part. Once I have made the purchase I turn off alwaysVPN and download normally to my PC and via wi-fi on my nook.
That is what the situation is supposed to be, but for some inexplicable reason, I'm having issues. At least one book I got (free) refuses to download because of the "invalid" credit card I mentioned earlier. My card is set as my default payment method, and the billing address is in US.

It worked for the other (also free) books I got, but because it's giving me issues with this one, I'm hesitant to try and actually purchase a novel. But it seems my issues are in the minority.
