..... but the storyline just didn't work.

I really enjoy Ms Day's story telling - just not this one! I pushed on through 3 chapters, but when I found myself skipping paragraphs then pages, I put the book down. I tried skipping to the end to read the last couple of chapters but gave up after reading a couple of lines. I was defeated by this book.

I mean - really. Why couldn't Isabel just make love to her husband and have contingency plans for when he started to stray (if he ever did)? Forwarned is forearmed. Just guard your heart girl and get on with it! Yes, your first husband was a bast**d - you keeping bringing this up in your thoughts got pretty old pretty quick :-(

This book started out really well but started to frizzle really quickly. I really wanted to like but, alas, it was not to be.

They were together for all the wrong reasons. They are London's most scandalous couple. Isabel, Lady Pelham, and Gerard Faulkner, Marquess of Grayson, are well matched in all things - their lusty appetites, constant paramours, wicked wits and their absolute refusal to ruin their marriage of convenience by falling in love.........

Although I finished the book I can't say I liked it as much as Sylvia's other books but I think that might just be me as I don't normally read period story's

After reading the first two books in the Crossfire series and completely loving them, I thought I would give another book by Sylvia Day a try.

I've never read a period novel before so for me this was something new. I'm not the strongest reader and found myself googling some of the words used. Because of this, it took me a little longer to read but I still thoroughly enjoyed it :)

The main characters are likeable but both have a lot of baggage from their pasts that they need to get rid off in order to make their marriage work. Isabel is angry at her late husband for straying in their marriage and destroying her trust, and Gerard is carrying around the guilt that his childhood sweetheart Emily died during child birth with his child. As the story moves on you can see their relationship developing and by opening up to each other and talking, they start to move on from the past.

This is a lovely story with some steamy sex scenes (well, quite a few steamy scenes actually). I would defiantly recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good romance novel with a bit of added spice.

This was so enjoyable, containing all the things I like in a book - romance, really steamy rude bits and a happy ending. I did wonder initially whether the plot would stretch to 294 pages as it was pretty obvious from the off how it was going to end. Day's solution to stretching a thin plot over 300 pages was by means of page after page of heaving, lusting body parts beautifully described in in an old fashioned, flowery language.

The only reason this one was a 4 star rather than a 5 star was the barrier its historical context presented. The jeopardy element of the plot relied on a better grasp of 19 century social conventions than I will ever have. I just didn't always appreciate exactly what the character's problem was. Er, is that all you're worried about? Also as per seven years etc by the same author, the author has an irritating habit of referring to one character by more than one name - one moment she uses the first name, the next the surname and then the title - to refer to one character. But that was a minor irritation - I really enjoyed this and will hang onto it to read again.

If you don't like a lot of explicit sex, don't read this book. I don't mind myself, but I know that other readers have greater sensitivities than I do.

There is already a good review synopsis given, so I'll try not to repeat that. The book starts in 1815 when Gerard Faulkner, Marquess of Grayson is twenty two. Isabel, Lady Pelham, is a beautiful twenty six year old widow. She is somewhat scandelous as she openly takes lovers, her current lover is Gray's best friend. Isabel's dead husband Pelham was an extremely handsome, charming man, who seduced her straight out of the schoolroom when she was seventeen. Isabel was madly in love with him and thought that her love was reciprocated. However, within six months of their marriage Pelham was off to other beds. Isabel desparately hurt, vows never to love again and when Pelham dies, vows never to marry again. She chooses unmarried lovers and her affairs are all relatively long term, lasting a few years. Unfortunately for her, nearly all of her unmarried lovers fall in love with her and want to marry her, so in the end she ends up hurting them.

Gerard (Gray), a fun loving young rake is in love with his childhood sweetheart, Emily. While off on his Grand Tour of Europe for a year, Gray's mother, a very embittered woman who appears to hate to see him happy, instils doubt in Emily's mind regarding Gray's fidelity. An unhappy Emily marries someone else. When Gray returns he is devestated. However, the two conduct an affair although Gray is not physically faithful.

Gray is attracted to Pel (Isabel), who is a friend. He decides that she would make the ideal wife to spite his mother.
