Stormswept (Wales #1) by Sabrina Jeffries (Deborah Martin)
Re-Release Date: June 28, 2016
Synopsis: 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?
Review: This story was passionate, emotional, and intense at times. I love romances that make you set the book down so you can have mental arguments with the characters or think of what the character should have said when confronted with an accusation. (I hope I m not the only one who does that, lol) This one did that several times over. I loved it. I loved the characters, their storyline, and how she wins his love and trust in the end. Poor Rhys, what he went through would have made anyone bitter and angry and Darcy knew just how to twist a tale so he believed Julianna was the one to have betrayed him on their wedding night. Man, I hated Darcy and what he put his own sister through was just so wrong, but he got what he deserved in the end. I loved their love story, their passion, the turmoil they go through, and everything else about this story. I want this to be a series! I know Evan has his own book, but there appears to only be to two books in this reissued “series”. I hope she has plans to revisit the series.
