New York Times bestseller Sabrina Jeffries
reignites a daring love affair in this intriguing tale of
desire and deception...
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?
Originally published September 1995 by Topaz, writing as
Deborah Martin. This edition has been newly revised and
repackaged with a gorgeous, updated cover.
Sabrina Jeffries is the New York Times bestselling author of over 50 novels and works of short fiction (some written under the pseudonyms Deborah Martin and Deborah Nicholas). Whatever time not spent writing in a coffee-fueled haze of dreams and madness is spent traveling with her husband and adult autistic son or indulging in one of her passions---jigsaw puzzles, chocolate, and music. With over 9 million books in print in 21 different 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.
