EVERY MARRIAGE HAS ITS SURPRISES…
Gray was beautiful before, four years ago when he asked Isabel to wed him in a marriage of convenience. Now there are no words to describe him. He is no longer a boyish rogue, not by any stretch of the imagination, but a tormented man, driven by secrets, silent about what he’s done since he disappeared.
Isabel knew how to handle the reckless youth he’d been, but this new husband of hers… this darkly passionate man is not tamable. Does she dare explore the places inside herself that Gray demands to possess? Does she trust him enough to bare herself completely to a lover who is an irresistible stranger?

The Marquess of Grayson, aka Gerald
What a raunchy, beautiful, sexy, love story. Gerald Grayson is “Hot Shit” and he knows it. Married women want to be his mistress, while the single women compete to be his wife. His mother is hounding him to marry but he just wants to be left alone to his own rakish leisure. So Grayson strikes a wedding bargain that will allow him him that freedom. But even a Rake has a heart! And the bigger they are, the harder they fall!!
Growling, he said, “There is a heart and mind attached to the cock you enjoy so well. Altogether they form a man—your spouse. You cannot fragment the whole and take only the pieces you want.”
Isabel Pleham, aka Pel
Pel is a ravishing beauty with a body built for sin. Every man dreams of having her, except for her husband, Grayson. That’s because he is in love with another woman!! But Pel has other interests and a long list of options…
“You have no right to accost me like this.”
“I have every right. Did you fuck him?”
“Yes,” She turned her head to glare at him. “I fucked him all night. In every way imaginable. I sucked his-” Gray’s mouth took hers so hard she tasted blood. His tongue slid into her mouth, thrusting in a brutal rhythm… He held both of her wrists in one hand, while the other reached for the hem of her gown and yanked it upward.
I won’t give much away other than to say I loved each of these characters. They Sizzle and leave me in a wet puddle anytime they make love. Grayson is a skilled lover and a determined man. He has one of the dirtiest mouths in bed and he can go all night.
And when he isn’t screwing his wife into a coma, he’s seducing his way into her heart with the sweetest words.
“I pledge my troth to you, my wife. Not for my needs, as I did before, but for yours. You have given me so much—friendship, laughter, acceptance. You have never judged me or chastised. When I did not know who I was, you cared for me anyway. When I make love to you, I am content and I wish for nothing else.”
“Gerard.” His name, spoken in her broken voice, struck deeply.
“Will you let me in?” he implored.
“I want to give all that I am to you…”
OMG, Gerald just makes my heart melt as he seduces and woos his wife. I love books where couples fall in love after they’ve said, “I do.” Both characters had their faults, but I loved that they were always honest with each other and that honesty became the foundation for a wonderful love story.
Sylvia Day’s characters are so vivid. I loved the secondary characters and cared about the scenes that didn’t involve the main couple. There was a secondary love story that was downright adorable and sexy. I can’t recommend this steamy historical enough.
