Two years ago, Juliet and Sebastian were brought together when Sebastian pretended to be his missing twin to smugglers and kidnapped Juliet to get information on his brother. Rumors of their liason are springing up in town now so she and some of her family go to his estate outside of London intent on revenge. He insists his brother is gone and that he is not the one who kidnapped her, but Juliet knows he is because she's still in love with him. They fall for each other again, and he confesses al...more

Sabrina Jeffries is a favourite author of mine, but this is my least favourite book by her so far. There were some great moments, some funny moments. I loved that not all the characters were stereotypically ‘perfect’ (the secondary couple, who starred in the first book of the series, were wonderfully flawed).

I suppose my problem is that when I read a Jeffries book, I expect well above average. I expect it to find a place on my ‘Favourites’ shelf. I expect to want to go ba...more

Book 3 in the Swanlea Spinsters series

I have not read the other books in the series; this is my first one, as well as my first time reading this author. I just loved the story and characters and the humor that was in this book that I’ll now have to read the rest of the series.

Juliet was kidnapped two years ago by Morgan Pryce. Sebastian (Morgan’s brother) was actually the one doing the kidnapping in order to find out information from smugglers about Morgan’s whereabouts (in exchange they wanted...more

3.5 stars actually.

Nothing much happens in this book (the amount of plot or conflict could fit in a thimble) but the hero and heroine are so likeable and normal, I almost found myself not caring.

Sebastian and Juliet
England, 1816


This was such uninspiring, unengaging drivel that I'm not going to waste my time writing too much for the review (yes, it was so bad in a boring and annoying way that it doesn't even merit a hate-review). I had to rate it two stars because I reserve one stars for my real hate-reviews or absolute dreck. Sabrina Jeffries has talent as a writer so I couldn't rate this one star even though it was hard not to.

It's hard to say I hate the hero. He's unlikeable...more

I didn’t initially jump into the storyline. At first, I wasn’t feeling this book and didn’t know if I’d stick with it. it seemed almost boring.
At times I couldn’t put it down, and other times it just wasn’t that exciting.
I thought this book was going to be set at Christmastime or at least during the winter, but it really wasn't set around winter. after I got done reading, I wondered why there was a sleigh on the cover and then I remembered that one miniscule sleigh ride. I wish the book had been...more

I've only read one other book by Jeffries (The Truth about Lord Stoneville) and I loved it. So I had great expectations for this one. I did like this book but it just didn't hold my attention as firmly as I'd expected. I'm not sure whether, being the middle book in the series, it lacked some background information found in the previous books that would have added something extra to the characters, or to the subplot pertaining to the rumours about Juliet's reputation, or to Juliet's infatuation w...more

Sejak halaman pertama buku ini, para pembaca langsung dibawa ke tengah-tengah cerita. Seperti diketahui, buku ini adalah buku ketiga dari seri Swanlea Spinters dimana dari dua buku sebelumnya telah diperkenalkan tokoh Juliet, bungsu dari tiga bersaudara dimana kedua kakaknya, Rosalind dan Helena telah menemukan pujaan hati mereka.

Pada buku pertama diceritakan betapa Juliet ngotot ingin menikah dengan Griff untuk menyelamatkan keluarga mereka dari kemelaratan yang akhirnya tidak dia lakukan karen...more

Komenku :

#Sebastian.ini berkarakter sangat bertanggung jawab. Betapa tidak. Ayahnya penakluk wanita. Ibunya kabur sambil membawa saudara kembarnya. Alhasil dari remaja, dia mengurus sekuat tenaga t4 dia tinggal. Rasa sepinya ditumpahkan dg hobi mengoleksi senjata. Yah, seperti kata juliet, sebasatian itu persis dewa yunani Hepasteus. Nah, rasa tanggung jawab sebastian membuatnya ikut campur dlm urusan saudar kembarnya. Alih2 menemukan Morgan, dia dipaksa menculik Juliet, sosok perempuan yg lgsg...more

Storyline?Absolutely sold banget deh~ Aku suka banget ttg crita yg bertema 'bertemu kembali setelah bbrp thn'. U noe what I mean..

Juliet tuh bbrp thn yg lalu (or 1 judul terdahulu) perna di ajak kawin lari yg berakhir dgn penculikan oleh Morgan. Emg ndak di apa2in sih. Dan akhirnya jg berhasil menyelamatkan diri.

Walopun stlh penculikan,juliet n famz menyembunyikan skandal ini rapat2,trnyt skrg skandal ini muncul. Dan berpotensi merusak reputasi juliet. Jika juliet n famz samasekali ndak perna me...more

I picked this book as I so often do because of the cover. The updated cover not the same one as this edition. I know it is a horrible habit of mine, but it hasn't come back to bite me in the ass just yet. I vaguely recall reading the blurb and finding it interesting, I bought the book along.

Once I started reading it, I thought the the whole twin escapade and the whole secret identity was interesting, but I got bored of it pretty quick. I was more interested to find out what would happen when Jul...more

Gila! parah rameee! ahahha
walau yah too much description ahahaha. dan rasanya ini lebih berputar-putar ceritanya.

Juliet mendatangi kediaman Lord Templemore untuk meminta kebenaran dibalik penculikannya dua tahun yang lalu. namun bukan Morgan, orang yang menculiknya dulu--atau yang ia kira menculiknya dulu, melainkan kembaran identiknya, Sebastian yang 'menyambutnya'.
Sebastian tidak menyangka setelah dua tahun ia menyamar sebagai Morgan untuk menculik Juliet, akhirnya dapat bertem...more

Akhirnya,,novel terakhir lebih menarik,,sangat jauh lebih menarik dari 2 seriesnya. Benar2 tidak mengecewakan untuk novel yang ini, semua dibaca dengan nikmat:-)

Rumor mengenai penculikan Juliet beredar di kalangan bangsawan London, membuat kembali dirinya semakin kesal karena rumor ini mengingatkan kebodohannya untuk percaya dengan puji-pujian dan janji palsu seorang Morgan Pryce. Dengan bantuan Griff Knighton, kakak iparnya, Juliet bertekad untuk menuntut keadilan pada Lord Templemore yang menj...more

I have not been disappointed in a Sabrina Jeffries book yet. I got this book cheap at B&N but didn't realize when I started it that it was book 3 in a series. I was still able to grasp the gist of what had transpired in a previous book so it didn't really matter. It was a fun, enjoyable read and I liked the characters. My one and only real complaint with this book was when the hero kept referring to his "junk" as his John Thomas.....first of all, naming it seemed really juvenile(maybe they d...more

Wished the H would just confess already! Then his hesitation to tell her family...ugh! Liked the backbone that the h had developed since last book.

Great read. Not into spoiling stories for others but a kidnapping, twins and deceit makes for a good read.
J.D. Stroube
Compared to most other romance authors I loved this book. However, compared to the other books that Sabrina Jeffries has written...I would not say that this is her best.

The plot was pleasant enough. It was a bit boring at times, but it has its moments. I was not enthralled by the characters.

I thought that the lovemaking scenes were actually invigorating. I was shocked, because I normally skip those parts in romance novels (they have a tendency to repeat the same scene over and over again). I fe...more

My favorite so far of this series, but not the best series Jeffries has written. I loved the cat and mouse game Juliet and Sebastian play as she tries to get him to admit he really is her kidnapper. The side story of Griff and Rosalind was good, but I was disappointed that Helena and Daniel were nowhere to be found in this book. I also realize I will now have to read the Lord trilogy next since The Pirate Lord is referenced several times in this book. You could read this standalone, but it is be...more

So i'm obsessively reading all of Jeffries's romances, no real reason just something fun to do, and they are all connected so characters that were the main plot movers in one become the minor stories in the next. This one, however, I just didn't like as much. I almost didn't finish it. I think it was the broken wheel of the girl's vendetta matched by the boy's lack of ... i don't know, just wasn't there whatever it was. The twist of how the gossiping villain at the end was hoisted by his own pet...more

Lebih bagus dari buku 1 & 2 menurut gw. Waktunya lebih panjang jd ga terkesan bertele" kya buku 2 n pastinya ga seboring buku pertama, pokoknya buku 1 paling membosankan dibanding yg 2 n 3 ini. Walo dibuku 1 & 2 karakter tokoh cw disini diceritakan terlalu naif n membuat repot kedua kakak"nya, dibuku ke 3 ini justru tergambarkan lebih dewasa dibandingkan kakaknya yg menjadi tokoh di buku 1.
heidi
Not the strongest Jeffries book I've read, which still puts it ahead of the vast majority of romances. I thought Juliet was sort of dull, but Sebastian was ok, although slightly hung up on his priorities.

Read if: You like Jeffries and you are a completist. You want a nice frothy book for the plane.

Skip if: You have a huge reading stack with other Jeffries in it.

“He tore his mouth from her eager lips to whisper, “Juliet…ah, sweeting…”
Only he had ever called her sweeting. “Morgan…” she whispered back.
He froze. Jerking back from her, he stared uncomprehending into her eyes. Then his face drained of heat as suddenly as hot iron dunked in water. He dropped his hands from her. “What the devil am I doing? I must be mad…”
Pivoting away, he leaned over to brace his fists on the table. His shoulders shook from the force of his sharp, heavy breaths.
“Morgan?” She stepped forward to lay her hand on his back.
He flinched at her touch. “Don’t ever call me that again. Call me Sebastian or Lord Templemore, but never Morgan. I’m not him!” He whirled to face her once more. His haunted eyes gleamed in the dimness, and his features were twisted into anger. “I think I’ve proved that sufficiently.”
His denial struck a dagger to her heart, and she began to tremble. Surely, he didn’t mean to continue in his lies after what they’d just shared. How could he? “Please, Morgan, don’t-“
“I’m not Morgan!” He glanced away. “I’m not.” Only his shaky hand shoving his beautiful, thick hair from his face belied his seeming control. “And another thing: no woman ruined by a man waits two years to hunt him down when her family is spoiling for vengeance. She doesn’t hide the truth from them, and she doesn’t come in secret to accuse her supposed debaucher.”
His gaze swung back to her as he dropped his voice. “She certainly doesn’t let him kiss her intimately. Your encounter with my brother wasn’t ‘wicked’ at all, was it? This was merely another of your little tests.”
He did mean to deny it all! Of all the infernal, dastardly-
“But now you should realize,” he went on, twisting the dagger, “that your attempts to paint me the villain are pointless. I’m not the man you seek. You’ll never prove I am.”
If she’d had one of his horrible weapons in her hand right now, he’d be dead for certain. That he could stand here and kiss her with such passion, then deny that it meant anything, deny their entire past together, while she still tasted him on her lips…
Very well, she could play that game. Lord knows she’d seen enough games played in society to manage one of her own. If that’s what it took to make him confess the truth. “You’re right. It was a test. But you passed.”
Her sudden change of tactic made him eye her with suspicion. “I did?”
“Certainly. First, by your reaction to my calling you Morgan. And second, because you kiss nothing like him.”
“You mean because he didn’t kiss you intimately.”
“No. Because he put more feeling into it. Like the rogue he was, Morgan kissed with great abandon.” She’d die before she admitted that his lordship had gone the same. If he could deceive her without remorse, he deserved this. “Of course, that’s to be expected of a reckless adventurer. His sort excel at inflaming women’s passions. Whereas you-“ She broke off, as if the rest were perfectly obvious.
He gazed at her mulishly. “Whereas I what?”
“You’re a gentleman, of course. You’re much too proper to kiss recklessly, and certainly you’d never attempt to inflame a woman’s passion.”
“You can’t tell me that my brother kissed you with more passion, for I know otherwise. His kiss was-“ He broke off, realizing his error too late. “You’ve already said that his kisses were perfectly chaste.”
Aha! Finally she’d pierced his infernal armor. She hadn’t told him there’d been only one kiss; he’d slipped up already. Let him believe she’d given up her suspicions-it would lull him into lowering his guard. She’d use his own arrogance against him, batter his pride at every opportunity with “perfectly innocent” comments about the past.
She shrugged. “Chaste? Well, that’s a different matter entirely. His kiss may have been ‘chaste,’ as you put it, but it was still thrilling.” She could hardly suppress her smile at the lovely effect her words had on Lord Templemore. He looked positively offended.”
