The story, 3rd of the Swanlea Spinsters series, didn't start to pick up pace and heat up until around page 200. It is my humble opinion that about 75 of those pages could have been cut without causing damage to the overall story.

In this book we catch up with Juliet Laverick who is traveling with her sister Rosalind and brother-in-law Griff Knighton, to the country home of Sebastian Blakely, Lord Templemore. Their purpose is to discover the source of the gossip that has recently surfaced about Juliet's so-called elopement that took place 2 years earlier. It is Juliet's assumption that Morgan, with whom she eloped but was actually kidnapped, is the source of the gossip and is a ward of Lord Templemore and by meeting again with Morgan, hopes to put a stop to the gossip. Upon meeting Lord Templemore, Juliet believes that he is really Morgan and is lying to cover his identity. In reality, Sebastian and Morgan are twins, separated at birth and only recently reunited.

The main idea of the story was a good one. There was good chemistry between the hero and heroine and both were likeable characters. The source of the gossip turned out to be the villain of the story and everything was neatly wrapped up with a good ending. But I personally felt there was too much chit-chat (for lack of a better phrase) included only to increase word count and page number.

Juliet and Sebastian's story was wonderful. It was a great way to end the trilogy of the Swanlea spinsters and also to keep the series going with interesting and complex new characters. Sabrina Jeffries is a great author who draws realistic characters that you can really get behind. This was a great story and I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

What happens when a proper young lady gives in to a reckless love? After two London Seasons - and a score of resoundingly dull society suitors - lovely Juliet Laverick still longs for only one man: Morgan Pryce, the dashing scoundrel who kidnapped her two years ago. But her determination to bring him to justice hasn't waned, either. Then Morgan's twin brother, Sebastian, tell her some shocking news: Her mysterious paramour has disappeared.

Sebastian, Lord Templemore, has a secret. He's the one Juliet seeks - it is his kiss she still yearns for. Confessing to her abduction would bring disaster and scandal upon him both. But how can he convince Juliet to forsake her pursuit of her dream lover - when all he dreams of is holding her in his arms again?
