    Reminder of Why I Love Sabrina Jeffries

    Lady Juliana St. Albans has a tendency to land herself in trouble the run away. Something she has found herself doing quite frequently in the past few days. First, when she attends a meeting of the Sons of Wales secret group then makes her escape when finds herself face to face with the son of the man that people say her father cheated out of his estate. Second, the following morning when he shows up on her doorstep and outs her to her father who promises punishment; and finally when she finds herself running away with the man who has captured her heart in such a short time. Her heart soars with their wedding night only to break the next morning when she learns of his impressment on a warship. With her husband’s disappearance she agrees to her family’s wishes in keeping her marriage a secret with a demand of her own. For six years Juliana has never lost hope that her husband will return. A hope that dies when her brother’s investigator tells her husband that her husband at sea. Now a widow Juliana bows to her brother’s wishes and agrees to marry another; at least until the impossible happens the night of her engagement ball. Rhys Vaughn grew up bowing to his father’s wishes: only speaking the English language, attending the best English schools, and touring the continent like a true English son. He may follow his father’s wishes but Rhys’ heart will always be Welsh. This has led him to this meeting of the secret group, Sons of Wales; a meeting where a bewitching lass catches his eye. A lass that soon earns his mistrust when he finds out she is the daughter of the man who stole his inheritance then he accuses her of being a spy. His mistrust soon grows to epic proportions following a night of passion. Rhys has had six long years to harden his heart and let his mistrust of Juliana grow. When Rhys returns he is intent on claiming what is his and meting out just punishment, but the wife he finds is no longer the young girl who ran away from her troubles. She’s a woman who will fight for what she wants and can give as good as she gets but is that enough to break through his calloused heart and earn his trust? Can Rhys ever learn to trust her again and does Juliana even want him anymore? Juliana’s growing a backbone and not letting her family completely control her after Rhys disappeared hinted at the woman she would become. This reader admired the growth and independence that Juliana achieved in the years since Rhys’ disappearance and sympathized with her shock upon his return. The determination she showed in regaining Rhys’ love and trust was another point to be admired which made her slip into despair when she realized she may never have that again all the more heartbreaking. Rhys’ pain and suffering, along with the lies he was told, make his thirst for revenge understandable and he thinks he has the perfect plan. Oh, but how this reader laughed at how he thought things would go his way. Rhys suffered a barrage of emotions from his firm belief that Juliana betrayed him to the moment she slipped into despair and he realized what she meant to him although at this point he still wasn’t sure if he could trust her. This reader could feel the battle within as Rhys tried to reconcile the fact that he still loved Juliana with his wariness of trusting her. A deep sigh was released when the moment of truth was revealed. Stormswept is a reissue of the 1995 original by Sabrina Jeffries, writing as Deborah Martin. Ms. Jeffries has long been one of this reader’s “go-to authors” although it had been quite a while since a story by Ms. Jeffries was read. Stormswept reminded this reader why she likes Ms. Jeffries’ writing. In this reader’s opinion a great author is one who can engage the reader’s emotions; Ms. Jeffries accomplishes that and so much more. Stormswept is filled with mistrust, lies, heartbreak, revenge, and devious relatives; all things that help make up a good story. Overall, it was still an excellent read and I highly recommend it.

    I just adored Lady Juliana St. Albans.

    This story was wonderful. I just adored Lady Juliana St. Albans. She was fun and feisty and had a hard time having to act like a proper lady. Even though she was English, she was intrigued by everything Welsh, which was suppose to be a lower class. Having followed her Welsh lady's maid, while dressed undercover to a Sons of Wales meeting, she is mesmerized by the main speaker, Rhys Vaughan and of course he is intrigued by her. Juliana and Rhys start spending more time together, and quickly fall in love and decide to elope. Their wedding night was wonderful to Juliana. It awoke certain feelings she never realized she even had. The only problem was in the morning, Rhys was gone and all of a sudden her brothers show up. Juliana spends the next six years waiting for him to return until she is told that he died on a ship. Juliana finally gives up and decides to marry Stephen Wyndham, the Marquess of Devon. At their engagement party, who should walk in by Rhys, coming to claim his wife! Rhys takes his wife back to his place convinced that she had something to do with his disappearance. I loved this part of the story. As the two of them still fought the attraction they had towards each other, they didn't trust each other. As the real story starts to unravel, they both come to realize things that neither of them actually knew. Juliana and Rhys were both strong, proud and loyal characters. I really enjoyed the ride they took to get to their happy ever after.

    Stormswept by Sabrina Jeffries- Revised version

    Stormswept by Sabrina Jeffries is an interesting Historical Romance. "Originally written as Deborah Martin and newly revised..." Well written with engaging characters and an emotionally charged storyline about second chances, and deception, with passionate romance. Flawed characters add a feel of reality to this story, as well as mystery, mistrust and a menacing foe. After six years of waiting, not knowing what happened to her newly wedded husband of only one night, Lady Juliana St. Albans, thinks he is dead, finds herself on the altar to wed another. When suddenly from nowhere her beloved, Rhys Vaughan, re-appears. With many questions and few answers, can they re-kindle their love and passion or will all the lies, deceit, secrets, mistrust and menace, destroy their second chance forever? Can Rhys, find the answers he is seaching for, who tried and nearly successed in destroying his life and family? Or will the truth finally come out and the why? Take a journey with Rhys and Juliana through their battle of suspense, mystery, intrigue and desperation, on their way to finding their second chance and their HEA. Fast paced, and I must say intriguing with twists and turns. I read the older version of this story, way back when and loved it and I love this re-vised version, even better. I still didn't see the ending coming. Compelling, and emotionally charged, with bitterness and determination. A must read. Once again, Ms Jeffries has written yet another suspenseful and intriguing story. Simply amazing! Received for an honest review from Net Galley. However, all opinions and thoughts are my own. Rating: 4.5 Heat rating: Mild Reviewed by: AprilR

    A great read!

    The story is of Lady Juliana St. Albans and Rhys Vaughan. Juliana and Rhys eloped and unfortunately only had the chance to spend one wonderful night together. Rhys is then unexpectedly taken away from her and Juliana is later led to believe that he is dead. Now several years later Juliana has decided to start again and is becoming engaged until Rhys makes an unexpected appearance at the betrothal dinner. Rhys has a lot of anger and trust issues with Juliana a he thinks she is the one who betrayed him and consequently the cost of his impressment and the loss of six years of his life. Juliana is stunned to see him and mystified at his accusations, she tries to give him back understanding and show him that she always had hope for his return. A very enjoyable romance full of emotion as Juliana and Rhys rekindle a love that was unbreakable.

    Love Misunderstood

    I received a copy from Netgalley to read and review. I enjoy Sabrina Jeffries writing and this one was great. This book was previously released by her under the name Deborah Martin. This is a story of misunderstanding caused by lies. Juliana St. Albans feel in love with Rhys Vaughan. She was English and he was Welsh. It didn't help matters that her father took his father's estate and caused the squire's death. They married but were parted on their wedding night. Six years later, he reappears in her life. They now how to figure out how to overcome the lies that separated them. I loved reading their ups and downs. I felt her emotions and that kept me reading. I would recommend it to anyone who loves misunderstanding tropes and the eventual happily ever after.
