A young widow encounters the man who fueled her dreams for years in this erotic Regency romance by the #1 New York Times bestselling author.
Seven years ago, on the eve of her wedding, Lady Jessica Sheffield witnessed a scandalous scene: the young rakehell Alistair Caulfield giving himself to a very pleased—and paying—lady. Shocked yet titillated, Jessica nevertheless walked down the aisle. Throughout her serene yet unremarkable marriage, Alistair lived in her illicit fantasies. But now fate has left her a childless widow.
Meanwhile, Alistair ran far from his disreputable life—and the beautiful debutant he could not have. Now a successful shipping merchant, he has little in common with the man Jessica once knew. But when she 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 as they set sail, they finally surrender to overpowering waves of passion.
“The book that inspired Bared to You.”—Sylvia Day
Lady Jessica Sheffield has seven years and more than 300 pages to sin, and sin she does, with great enthusiasm and in considerable detail, in this erotic Regency. Shortly before her wedding, Jess sees rakehell Alistair Caulfield performing unspeakable but delicious acts with a more than willing lady. She undergoes a sexual awakening, transfers that interest to her husband, and enjoys a happy seven-year marriage until she's left a childless widow. In the meantime, Alistair has reformed and built a shipping company. When Jess decides to inspect her inherited Caribbean property, Alistair manages to get her on board one of his ships, and the two steam up the entire Atlantic Ocean. Day creates sympathetic characters and skillfully weaves in some intense subplots about Jess's abusive childhood and her sister's violent husband. The main interest, though, lies in the extensive and graphic love scenes.

Not a new book
What's different from the book you published 3 years ago? Exact same story....
Why not work on new material?
This is not a new story...why not work on completing the crossfire series...this is very frustrating
Seriously disappointed by this author...loved her crossfire series until she so clearly tried to stretch the story in order to make more money. And now this tired plot being revived for the same obvious reasons...
Lost respect for you Sylvia Day :(
