    2. 'Windswept' by Sabrina Jeffries (Deborah Martin) is book Two in the "Wales" series. This is the story is the story of Catrin and Evan. Please note that this was originally written under the pseudonym name Deborah Martin and released in 1996. Ms. Jeffries has now re-released under her current name.

    3. I adored STORMSWEPT, so I was excited to read this. However, it's just not pulling me in. I didn't like how the leads first met and the overemphasis on the heroine's physical attractiveness. Not only that, she is a VIRGIN WIDOW, a trope I severely detest. I don't find the plot itself all that interesting, so I've decided not to finish this one.

    4. It's been a while since I indulged in a regency romance, so I was looking forward to this one. It's a rather "plotty" romance with strong sub-plots (besides the romance), which is something I quite like. I also enjoyed the fact that it involved unusual elements and places--a small town in Wales, ancient Druidic curses, and a 'magic' chalice.Despite the Druids and the chalice, this book is straight-up regency romance and doesn't delve too far into fantasy. The heroine is Catrin who comes from a W [...]

    7. *I am voluntarily leaving a review for an eARC provided to me by NetGalley and the publisher***NOTE** This review is for the revised, re-released 2017 version of Windswept by Sabrina Jeffries - the original was published under her pseudonym of Deborah Martin. I have not read the original book, so I have no idea what has changed from that edition to this one.I liked this book, but not nearly as much as the first book Stormswept. This book features Evan Newcome, who was a child in the previous boo [...]

    8. "If any woman of thy lineage doth not drink of the cup at her wedding, her husband shall die within three years of her wedding."FINAL DECISION:  The book has an elegance and a more serious tone than other books by Jeffries.  I really enjoyed these characters and the journey they took because while there are many secrets and deceptions between them, there is a joy and lightness that surrounds this coupleE STORY:  Catrin Price is a Welsh widow with a family death curse.  If she does not drink [...]

    9. Welsh widow Catrin Price is haunted by a family death curse. Any man she marries without first drinking from an ancient Druid chalice that was sold by her ancestor long ago is doomed.This is an early book from Sabrina Jeffries, whose stories I absolutely love. Unlike her other books, this one has a mystical element and Welsh mythology, one type of mythology I’ve never read before. As with her other stories, the characters and story were well written. I enjoyed every bit of it. I highly recomme [...]

    10. It doesn't matter when Sabrina Jeffries wrote something or under what name, her work never fails to lighten my mood. I love her writing -the wit, charm, steam, romance.It's all there!

    11. Review for the Second EditionIt pains me to say this, but I don't particularly like this book. The writings is what's expected of the author's, whatever pen-name she writes under; I don't find fault in that. I just can't seem to like the characters in the story!As much as I get the difficulties for both hero and heroine presented by the storyline, the necessity to be truly frank and suspect the other of something, I couldn't get pass the bully and timid, weak-minded impressions they depicted in [...]

    12. For the majority of this novel, it wavered between 3.5 and a 4. Then the last 30-50 pages made it a solid 3.5. This novel is my first Deborah Martin novel but I've read many other novels under the author's other pseudonym, Sabrina Jeffries. In comparison to her other works, this novel had a lot more plot development and character development. The author stated that these books are darker, which I guess they are because they have more murder. And it seems that the author was attempting to write m [...]

    13. Book two in Sabrina Jeffries Wales series follows Evan who has grown into a very successful scholar thanks to the kindness and love of his friends Juliana and Rhys, who we met in Stormswept. He is no longer the abused farm hand's son, though he still carries the concerns that he won't be worthy of any woman because of his past. He is out to avenge his friend Justin's murder which leads him to Catrin's doorstep. She was the last to reportedly see his friend and he suspects that she might have had [...]

    14. *I received a copy from the author via NetGalley This story will make you want to read up on Wales and Welsh mythology. The opening was perfect and hooked me from the start with the tale of the chalice. I loved the mystery and had absolutely no clue who the murderer was or why and was taken by surprise when it was revealed. Catrin and Evan are perfect for each other and definitely have instant chemistry. I loved their first meeting and how they are kind of opposites in many things. The ending wa [...]

    15. A family curse, an ancient Druid chalice, a murder most foul, a smattering of Welsh folklore, villains, and two people who are meant for each other made this a very good read. Catrin Price is desperate to find the Druid chalice that is necessary for her to have a long lasting marriage. Her husband must drink from the chalice at their wedding or die within three years. An ancestor sold the chalice, since then four generations of her family have become widows. Unfortunately, Catrin's attempt to bu [...]

    16. This is another of Sabrina Jeffries’ reissues from her days writing as Deborah Martin. These books aren’t as light and humorous as her later works but still retain her unique writing style and delightful love and passion.This is the second book in the Wales series, after Stormswept, but each book does stand alone. Evan featured in the first book as a young boy, and the couple from Stormswept - Rhys and Juliana - feature in Windswept albeit slightly older.I’m already a huge fan of Sabrina J [...]

    17. Windswept was a delightful afternoon read that I could not put down!It was a nice escape from reality reading about the Lady of the Mist, widowed Catrine Price, and her chalice cursed misfortunes. Plus, meeting Evan Newcome a man searching for his best friends murderer (the last man to have the chalice). While both Catrine and Evan seem to have all sorts of trust issues and fears what they had undeniably was an unequivocal attraction to one another that leads us on a journey full of mystery, int [...]

    18. Catrin, the Lady of the Mist, has been plagued by a family curse. Before she can marry again, he first husband met his demise because of the curse, she must find the family chalice.Evan Newcome is looking onto the murder of his best friend. This takes him to Wales in search of a mysterious woman his friend met the night of his death. When he meets her, she is not what he expected to find.The two find they are not the only ones wanting the chalice. They must work together against those persons an [...]

    19. As with all of Sabrina’s books, the storytelling is great. If you like curses, Welsh folklore and a little bit of mystery then this is the story for you. I really liked the previous book “Stormswept” but was not terribly enamored with this story. I liked Evan (seeing him all grown up was so nice). Catrin, not so much. Oh, I understand why she told her little fibs but they just kept going on and on. The mystery (and murders) kept me reading. Overall the story was nice, just not thrilling to [...]

    20. Catrin and Evan are used to being judged by others. She is very shy and he is a scholar, but the son of a farmer. They want to be together, but they both are not trusting of others. They both have lied to the other and so the mistrust is understandable. They have to battle a curse and someone trying to steal the chalice from Catrin. Several people have been killed for the chalice and Catrin doesn't want to be one of them. Once they get past the lies and hurt, can their love withstand the curse?

    21. Evan and Catrin's story was fun to read. I liked the mythology behind their story and how it brings them together. There is a bit of drama that added to the storyline. Always enjoy Sabrina Jeffries work.I received a review copy of this title courtesy fro the publisher via NetGalley for a honest review.

    22. Originally posted on Adria's Musings and Reviews Review to come soon. (Blog post MAY have additional content such as playlists, interviews, giveaways, etc).* A copy of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley for the purpose of an honest review. All conclusions are my own responsibility and I was not compensated for this review.

    23. An intriguing story about a generational curse on the women of a family. I would have given it a 4 star except there was WAY too much detail about the romantic loversDefinitely not an appropriate book. Good otherwise.

    24. Publisher's Description:Originally written under the pseudonym Deborah Martin, this unforgettable tale of mystery, treasure, and passion is back in print at last and newly revised for today’s audience!Welsh widow Catrin Price is haunted by a family death curse. Any man whom she marries without first drinking from an ancient Druid chalice sold by her ancestor long ago is unquestionably doomed. But when she hunts it down to purchase it, the chalice’s former owner ends up dead. Who will believe [...]

    25. It just went to slow in story line and not much action. This is the first of her books I could have fallen asleep while reading.

    26. 237 pg ebook. Although I did find this story entertaining and the villian interesting, I did not like the hero's manipulation of the heroine.
