After the abduction, By Sabrina Jeffries

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—not even when the man she mistakes for Morgan, his twin brother Sebastian, tells her some shocking news: her mysterious paramour has disappeared.

Sebastian Blakely, the Baron Templemore, dares not admit that he's the one Juliet seeks, that it is his kiss she still yearns for. Confessing to her abduction would bring disaster and scandal upon them 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?

Juliet, her sister and brother in law confront Sebastian because his brother kidnapped Juliet a year before. He did not hurt her, but he did kiss her and then leave her somewhere safe then ride off into the sunset. Juliet became infatuated with him and wonders why Morgan didn't bring her with him wherever it was he ran off to. Juliet's family hopes that Sebastian will be able to tell them where to find Morgan, his twin brother.

Little do they know that Sebastian is the one who was with Juliet last year, and that he was just pretending to be his brother.
Juliet knows that something isn't right, and he suspects that Sebastian and Morgan are the same person, so she sets out to trick him into telling her the truth. Because of bad weather, Juliet and her family are forced to stay at Sebastian's home, and it gives them plenty of time to get close.

I liked the book, but I found that I was missing something. I even went back to the beginning a few times to see if there were pages that I missed. There are a lot of conversations where they talked about past happenings, and as a reader I feel that I should know what is going on, but I was pretty lost.
Turns out that the book is part of a series, and I need to read the other books to get the full picture.
I don't like it when that happens. Series books are great and I enjoy reading them, but I believe that you should be able to read and understand one or some of the books without having to read every single one in the series.

I recommend this book because I like the author and the love scense are hot, but I suggest reading the others in the series first.
