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?

This repackaging of Jeffries's 1995 novel unites an English lady with a daring Welshman in late 18th-century Wales. Lady Juliana St. Albans, sister of the Earl of Northcliffe, is about to hear the announcement of her engagement to Stephen Wyndham, Marquess of Devon, when she comes face to face with Rhys Vaughan—her husband, whom she had believed was dead. Rhys believes that Juliana was responsible for helping her brother get him impressed into the navy on their wedding night six years before, and he is ruthlessly determined to get back at her by forcing her to continue being his wife, under his absolute dominion. She continues protesting her innocence, and though Rhys greatly doubts her, his attraction to her grows. He gradually comes to the realization that she may not have betrayed him after all. The romantic angst simmers as Rhys aches and snarls and Juliana hopes and pleads. The depth of their emotions makes them believable characters, and their fast-paced story is intensely moving. (June)
