“New York Times bestseller Sabrina Jeffries reignites a daring love affair in this intriguing tale of desire and deception—originally written as Deborah Martin and newly revised for today’s audience.
The first wedding night that Lady Juliana St. Albans spent with the dark and daring Rhys Vaughan was intoxicating, the heady culmination of her new husband’s driving hunger and her own awakened sensuality. When he mysteriously disappeared the next morning, she waited for him in hope and desperation. And when he was finally proclaimed dead in a shipwreck, she bitterly mourned the loss of her love.
The second wedding night that Juliana spent with Rhys Vaughan was six years later, after he returned to claim her just as she was about to wed another. This Rhys was different—bolder, harder, and convinced that she’d betrayed him. Only their blazing passion remains from their years apart. But is it enough to light their way through the maze of mystery, menace, and mistrust—to the love they once shared and would have to find again?” –Goodreads
A trend I’ve noticed among authors is that their works tend to get better as they write, so despite being a re-release of one of her earlier works, I liked this romance. The plot was pretty unique and intriguing. While I wish more detail had been given about the main characters’ separation, I was satisfied with this novel. The biggest fault I’ve found with this book was how repetitive it got at times. I felt as if it was on repeat when the characters examined their emotions. Aside from that, it was a great story with some steamy love scenes.
