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.Read more ›
A very well thought out book that I could not put down until I read it all. Recommend.
All in all a pleasant way to while away a couple of evenings.
This was my first Silvia Day book and I'm afraid it'll be my last. The story is of a marriage between the Marquee of Grayson and Lady Pelham. Both live licentious lives and decide to marry for convenience (to ward off marriage minded lovers) and both characters carry scars from their past. The story line has potential but the book is disappointing.
The way the relationship was developed between the two characters is through a number of sex scenes, 300 pages of just that. It felt like this book has no depth and even some of the scenes which could have created some substance for example when the couple discuss about their past together, is just a mention.
The book felt samey all through except for the end - it seemed out of character for Isabel to be behaving so drastically. If you are looking for more essence to a story, I'd read Lisa Kleypas.
Lady Isabel Pelham is a 26 year old widow, happy to live the rest of her life fleeting from lover to lover and never marrying again. When the man she loved deeply and married betrayed her in ways that broke her heart she vowed she'd never make herself that vulnerable again, and she's determined to keep her word.
Gerard Faulkner, the Marquess of Grayson is 22 year old. The woman he loves has married somebody else, and although he enjoys his flirtations and nights with various women he is tired of being looked at as profitable marriage material.
The solution seems simple. If Grayson and Pelham were to marry each other they could both continue their scandalous life-style without being bothered by people wanting more than just an affair. It seems a good plan and for the first few months after their marriage it works out fine. When a personal loss hits Grayson hard he leaves London and his new wife behind for destinations unknown.
Four years later Grayson returns to London a changed man. No longer is he looking for adventure and lust. He has grown up and wants his marriage to be real instead of the sham Isabel and he agreed upon years ago. Isabel though is convinced that this can never work. Grayson is too much like her first husband; he too will get bored with her and betray her. And there is no way she could survive such a betrayal again. With Isabel determined to keep her husband as a platonic friend and their life-style unchanged, Grayson will have to convince her that he is indeed a changed man. During what is a sensuous process of seduction, Grayson slowly manages to lower the walls surrounding Isabel's heart.Read more ›
