Seven Years to Sin by Sylvia Day

5/5 Hockey Styxx

On the day of her wedding Lady Jessica Sheffield watches as the decedent and indecent Alistair plays with his latest paramour in the gazebo; all the while keeping contact with her eyes, with her soul. Running into her betrotheds arms, Jessica all but throws herself to him, begging to be taken even before the vows are read. With her beloved Benedict gone a year now it is time for Jessica to take care of business, planning to head back to the island and the plantation her husband had left to her. Never in her wildest dreams did she think she would meet up with Alistair again or the power he held over her after 7 long years. The power to make her weep with need and desire like he had done so briefly without a touch under the waning moon so long ago.

Alistair Caulfield had never gotten over the one woman who had captivated his heart so long ago despite their very brief yet intimate interlude and the connection made despite never touching each other. Now a successful merchant he had stayed away as much to be out of his father’s reach as to stay away from Lady Jessica. When her brother in law asked his favor in keeping the widow safe on her journey he could neither say no nor submerge his desire to finally capture the woman of his dreams. No other had captured his heart and no other could come closer than the Lady Jessica herself.

Taking a return trip back to the islands was not what he intended but it would give him the chance to see Jessica as she is now and attempt to win her over especially when he not only had purchased a berth on the ship she intended to sail on but owned that ship and others thanks to his determination to prove himself. Jessica had never forgotten the passion that Alistair had stirred within her but the younger man had always been much too arrogant in his preening for her to admit her notice even with her betrothal to a man who had captured her heart. Tarley had once held her heart and admittedly a comfortable passion but it was nothing like the erotic intensity that Alistair ignited within her and a temptation that she could not deny.

Whew. This erotic historical delight was beyond what I was expecting when I opened the first pages. I was absolutely enthralled in their arousing and exciting adventure that led them to opening up themselves to both passion and love like they had never found before. A little danger, a lot of spice and a fantastically delicious helping of sexy sensual interludes combine to deliver one of the best historical reads I have read this year. I loved their interactions, their emotional bond and their intimate explorations as they give in to a connection that they had let simmer for 7 years before consummating it this exceptional read.

A Passion for Him by Sylvia Day

Amelia Benbridge had not been raised with the typical lifestyle.  Sequestered and hidden from even her brother, never staying in one place or with one governess long enough to make attachments.  Watching the man who was stalking her across the ballroom she was sure she had never saw a more captivating man before even with her almost betrothed, the Earl of Ware, interrupting her view.   Her phantom was gone but not the interest in him or to her desire to find out who hid beneath the mask.   She would wed her Earl someday but she could never give him all of her heart.  That belonged to Colin, the young stable boy who she gave her love to just as he gave his life for her.

Count Reynaldo Montoya couldn’t keep his eyes off the raven haired beauty.   Colin Mitchell had never forgotten his Amelia but the gypsy knew he could never claim her.  Living as a man who could blend into any situation, his disguises would allow him to at least get close to her one last time.  Left for dead after protecting her from her evil father’s machinations, he had no idea how to return from the dead and how she would react to his deceit.

Trying to stay away from her for her own safety was futile when his determined first love follows him out of the city and into the danger that awaits him.  Betrayal and a price on his head kept him from telling her who he was even after she cornered him in his room.   They make love but he keeps hidden until the morning when he is determined to accept him fate when she learns of his betrayal.  When everyone hunting them down shows up at the inn all hell breaks loose.  When the truth of their predicament comes to light and the threat following him shows his hand and they must find a place that is safe and where he can flush out the criminal who was responsible for the price on his head.  Following the group to Ware’s estate, the dangerous past Colin was trying to expose reveals even more betrayals before revealing the plot that had been instrumental in keeping him away from the woman he loves.

This book was an adventurous escape for a cold January day.  Danger, betrayal, mayhem, mistaken identities and a chaotic flight across the country all end in a dash to tie the knot with their true love.  First love.  I loved Amelia’s spunk and determination.  Ready to give up a perfect live with an Earl to have one night of passion with a stranger.  A man that drew her to him like a moth to a flame.  A man who reminded her of the man she loved and lost.  Colin was determined to find his Amelia and despite the danger following him he gave in to the need to hold him in his arms once again.  I was a little bit piqued at Ware being so non-committal towards the woman he supposedly loved, his acceptance of her putting him to the side for Colin would have been a little bit more realistic if he had put up at least a bit of a fight for her.  Another great escape from the talented Sylvia Day that is definitely worth a read.
