Lady Isabel Pelham and Gerard Faulkner, Marquess of Grayson take the marriage of convenience to a new level. Both are notorious for their many affairs, provocative behavior and keen wits. They are well matched in every way so it only seemed natural for these two friends to marry. The fact that they promised never to mar their union by turning it into a love match was the most convenient aspect of the relationship. On the other hand, life has a way of changing one’s opinions and perspectives.
Four years after disappearing into the English countryside following a devastating loss, Gerard returns to London and the wife he left behind. This time he is intent on claiming Isabel as his wife, his friend, and the love he has needed for years. All he has to do is convince Isabel to let him into her heart, convince her he is a changed man and no longer the self-absorbed boy she married. He will seduce her heart and soul willing to do anything to keep her.
The Stranger I Married is by far one of my favourite books this month. Witty dialogue and the sexually charged interaction between Isabel and Gray were too delicious to put down. Sylvia Day does not disappoint with this release.
