Seven Years to Sin - Sylvia Day

Seven Years to Sin
Sylvia Day
Seven years ago, on the eve of her wedding, proper Lady Jessica Sheffield witnessed a licentious scene no innocent young miss could imagine. Shocked, yet strangely titillated, she’d held her silence regarding scandalous Alistair Caulfield, and walked down the aisle as expected. But through years of serene, unremarkable marriage, Caulfield’s image remained burned into her imagination, fueling very illicit dreams…
The longer the resistance……the sweeter the reward
Alistair ran far from the temptation of the prim debutante with the fire of passion in her eyes–all the way to the West Indies. As a successful merchant, he has little in common with the rakehell youth she knew. But when newly widowed Jessica steps aboard his ship for a transatlantic passage, seven years’ worth of denied pleasures are held in check by nothing more than a few layers of silk–and the certainty that surrender will consume them both... (Blurb Taken from
Great book, well written. I absolutely love the way/style this is written in. It's not the way you expect. The same sort of language as Pride and Prejudice. Alaister is amazing, such a gorgeous male lead. It did take me a while to get into the story, but once I got past the beginning part of the story (those who know, after she joined the ship), I really started enjoying the story, and couldn't put the book down.
I loved the secondary story. It's nice to have that in an erotica book. I'm so used to reading BDSM books with just the main storyline, that it was refreshing to find one that was written under the usual format of main storyline, background storyline. Main characters, and background characters. Each and every character had their very own, strong personality, that stood out and held up against everyone else.
I really loved this book, and the author is amazing (as always).
