Product Description

The Stranger I Married - the classic erotic romance - by Sylvia Day - author of the sensational international bestselling Bared to You, first book in the Crossfire series - is a tale of love and awakened desire in Victorian England.

They are London's most scandalous couple. Isabel, Lady Pelham, and Gerard Faulkner, Marquess of Grayson, are well matched in all things - lusty appetites, constant paramours, provocative reputations, and their absolute refusal to ruin a marriage of convenience by falling in love. It is a most agreeable sham - until a shocking event sends Gerard from her side. When, four years later, Gerard returns, the boyish rogue is now a powerful, irresistible man determined to seduce Isabel. He is not the man she married - but is he the one to finally steal her heart?

5.0 out of 5 stars Very, very sexy! 9 Feb 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gets better and better 14 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved seven years to sin, having found it by accident. I had read the crossfire series and always thought they were much better than shades of grey, but didn't know that these historical novels existed. When I started this one, I didn't like either character very much. Pel seemed a little cold and at first I thought she was much older than she actually turned out to be. Gray was juvenile, shallow and also the writing and the interaction between them seemed almost 'thin'. However, once Gray comes back, this story really kicks in and the characters and their relationship grows. Oh, and its hot! I ended up really enjoying it, and found Gray closer to Alistair than I had first thought him out to be. This book gets mainly positive reviews and it deserves them.
