The Stranger I Married(2006)
(The second book in the Historical Romance series)
A novel by Sylvia Day
They are London's most scandalous couple. Isabel, Lady Pelham, and Gerard Faulkner, Marques of Grayson, are well matched in all things - their lusty appetites, constant paramours, wicked wits, provocative reputations, and their absolute refusal to ruin their marriage of convenience by falling in love. It is a most agreeable sham...Until a shocking turn of events sends Gerard from her side. Now, four years later, Gerard has come home to Isabel. But the boyish rogue who left has been replaced by a powerful, irresistible man who is determined to seduce his way into her affections. No, this is not at all the man she had married. But, he is the man who might finally steal her heart.
