Show synopsis The Stranger I Married by Sylvia Day is the classic erotic romance novel, a tale of love and awakened desire in Victorian England. Also by Sylvia Day: the sensational internationally best selling Crossfire Series. They are London's most scandalous couple. Isabel, Lady Pelham, and Gerard Faulkner, Marquess of Grayson, are well matched in all things - lusty appetites, constant paramours, provocative reputations, and their absolute refusal to ruin a marriage of convenience by falling in love. It is a most agreeable sham - until a shocking event sends Gerard from her side. When, four years later, Gerard returns, the boyish rogue is now a powerful, irresistible man determined to seduce Isabel. He is not the man she married - but is he the one to finally steal her heart? Praise for Sylvia Day: "Move over Danielle Steel and Jackie Collins, this is the dawn of a new Day." (Amuse). "Several shades darker and a hundred degrees hotter than anything you've read before." (Reveal).
