Sylvie reluctantly took Margot's place

Morgana tried to wrench her wrist away from Luis. "Let me go!" she cried, trying desperately to control her tears. "I don't want to listen to you. What you intend to do with your life is not my concern!"
But that wasn't really true. Incredible that only days ago in Rio, she had been certain she would never see him again. Now, in less than a week, he had become so familiar to her, so important. But why was he holding her captive?
It was five years since Rachel had left her husband Andre Sanchez, and she was only coming to him now because he was the only one who could help her beloved father. But the marriage had broken up in the first place because of the suffocating influence of the Sanchez family. Now there was a danger that Rachel would be swallowed up in it yet again.
Andre's eyes darkened, "You're still a member of this family. You're a Sanchez."
Rachel shook her head. "I'm not. I'm Rachel Jardin!"
"You're Rachel Sanchez!" announced Andre harshly.
"I have plans for you, and you will do as your father wanted and follow them!"
"And if I disagree?"
"You'll be destitute. You've no money, on your own admission, you've no money, and I won't pay another cent into your London bank!"
Rachel felt defeated. "You're a brute!" she said unevenly. "I hate you, Andre Sanchez!"
"You'll say that once too often, Rachel." Without another word he brushed past her and went out the door, slamming it behind him.
"Me – I'm a loner," Dimitri said sardonically. "I want no little woman to warm my slippers on a winter's evening and cook me exotic eastern food!"
Joanne was furious, as much with herself as with him. It was no use speculating now on what might have happened if she had not written the letter, but she still could not understand why suddenly everything was going wrong!
"He's quite famous–and notorious."
Cassandra had been warned, and she didn't care. After enduring a disastrous marriage she was now ready for an affair with no strings attached.
But Jay Ravek was not like any man she'd known before. He was a totally new experience, and quickly she realized she wanted much more than a casual relationship.
If she was foolish enough to put her heart in his keeping she might never recover. Better for her to run now than to suffer the inevitable anguish.
