"A fast-paced historical romance that not only delivers all the boldly sensual passion Jeffries' readers have come to expect but also makes wonderful use of its refreshingly different Welsh setting." ---Booklist --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.
About the Author
Sabrina Jeffries is the New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author of several Regency-set historical romance series, including the Royal Brotherhood, the School for Heiresses, the Hellions of Halstead Hall, the Duke’s Men, and the Sinful Suitors. When she’s not writing in a coffee-fueled haze, she’s traveling with her husband, caring for her adult autistic son, or indulging in one of her passions: jigsaw puzzles, chocolate, music, and costume parties. With more than nine million books in print in twenty languages, the North Carolina author never regrets tossing aside a budding career in academics for the sheer joy of writing fun fiction and hopes that one day a book of hers will end up saving the world. She always dreams big.

This book is a re-issue of a Deborah Martin book that has been re-vamped and is now being published under the author's current name, Sabrina Jeffries. I did not read the original book, so I cannot say what was redone for this edition.
I loved this book - it is a story of betrayal, deception, love and redemption. It does have a little bit of the old school bodice ripper feel (also a little bit of a Count of Monte Cristo vibe) - but since I like that type of story - you will hear no complaints from me :)
The story is written in two parts, the first part is about when Juliana and Rhys meet and fall in love. The second part is about when they are reunited after 6 years apart.
Part one is sweet and I really felt the connection between them. They are betrayed and torn from each other. Each of them being lied to by the villain. Juliana waits for Rhys for years and then is told that he is dead. Rhys has been impressed into the navy and told that Juliana betrayed him and wanted to end their marriage. Rhys survives by sheer will and the desire for revenge.
Part two opens with Juliana becoming betrothed to Lord Devon and Rhys appearing at the party to contest the betrothal and claim his wife. He refuses to let her go and demands that she leave with him. What follows is two people relearning each other. Rhys believes that Juliana betrayed him and will not listen to her side of the story - he is firm in his belief and will not be swayed. Juliana is desperate to reconcile, but knows that unless they confront the past and have faith and trust in each other, that they will never be truly happy.
I loved watching these two interact and fall in love again. Rhys was stubborn and at times cruel to Juliana, but he did love her and when he finally accepted the truth and believed in her - I was in tears. I seriously wanted to smack the man several times throughout the book - he was such a jerk - but he totally redeemed himself and while he didn't grovel nearly as much as he should have (IMO) he did ask for her forgiveness and laid his heart in her hands - SIGH!!!
I would definitely recommend this book and look forward to more in this series.
