Not as good as the first two but still a fun read.
I am currently reading Sabrina Jeffries' backlist. I believe I started reading some of her backlist last year but I wasn't able to read any book from the Swanlea Spinster Series. This book can be read as a stand alone however, there are mentions of the other sisters. Unfortunately, this story picks up after Juliet gets abducted (hence the title After the Abduction, duh!) so we never get to read about how she was abducted but we do get an answer as to why.
As I have mentioned, the story starts about 2 years after Juliet Laverick gets abducted by Morgan Pryce. Juliet, her brother-in-law Griff Knighton, and sister Rosalind (A Dangerous Love) are off to confront Morgan Pryce's brother Lord Templemore and demand to know where Morgan is so they can stop the rumors circulating around the ton that Juliet eloped with Morgan but was returned to her family, ruined. Who were they to see at Charnwood (Lord Templemore's estate) but Morgan himself! Apparently, Sebastian, Lord Templemore was masquerading as Morgan and was in fact the one who kidnapped Juliet! Of course, Sebastian did not admit to it when Juliet recognized him. So starts the sizzling cat-mouse game Juliet and Sebastian play as she tries to catch Sebastian in the act and make him admit that he is the one who abducted her. When Sebastian admits to her and not to her family, Juliet leaves him and goes back to London. Sebastian follows and proposes marriage again. The book ends with Juliet and Sebastian marrying, Morgan returning to England, and Rosalind giving birth to a baby.
After the Abduction is a really great read. Not one of the best by Ms. Jeffries but a great read. Without reading A Notorious Love, which was the book where Juliet was abducted, I was able to follow the story. I loved the tricks Juliet pulled to try to make Sebastian admit that he was Morgan, that he was the one she fell in love with all those years ago. Their banter was electric and I thought that they were perfect for each other. Another thing that I loved about the story was when Juliet demanded that Sebastian come clean with her family about the abduction. I thought this was realistic and fit with Juliet's family values. This was also a great way for Sebastian to redeem himself and prove his love to her.
What I do not like about this story was not Juliet but Rosalind. I thought she was irritating and just did not anything to the story. I wanted to skip through all the parts where she was acting irritatingly crazy because she wasn't able to conceive. I haven't read the first book and now, I am debating weather I will read it.
Delightful romance with mixed identities, but of the series so far!
I was bored with this book, which is a surprise because I enjoyed the previous two books in this series well enough. The plot was convoluted, but that seems to be the case more often than not with this author, and I haven't minded in other books by Jeffries, so that wasn't it. Maybe it was the hero and heroine themselves. Not that they're marred individually by any intrinsic character flaw. She's relatively intelligent, and he's a control freak, but crazy for the heroine. I just couldn't connect with the characters, and couldn't really muster up any interest in their story. There's a side story involving Rosalind and Griff from the first book, A Dangerous Love, as they go through a little bit of a rocky patch in their marriage. But this cameo appearance wasn't enough to salvage After the Abduction, which completely fell flat for me. Having finished it I'm hard pressed to recall anything specific about the book, anything I could mention in a review beyond how difficult it was for me to plow through to the end. But I persevered, and hope the next Swanlea installment will be better.

After two London seasons--and a score of resoundingly dull society suitors--Juliet Laverick finds herself longing for one man: Morgan Pryce, the dashing scoundrel who kidnapped her two years ago. But her determination to bring the rogue to justice hasn't waned--until Morgan's twin brother, Sebastian, arrives with some shocking news: Juliet's mysterious paramour has disappeared. Sebastian, Lord Templemore, dares not tell Juliet the truth: he is the man she seeks--it is his kiss she yearns for. Confessing to the abduction would bring devastating scandal upon them both. But how can he persuade her to forsake her dedicated pursuit of her dream lover, when all he dreams of is holding her in his arms again?
