Best Sylvia Day Books and Novels

1. The Stranger I Married (Historical Romance)

In Victorian England, “The Stranger I Married” is an erotic tale of love and awakened desire.

They are the most controversial pair in London.

Isabel, Lady Pelham, and Gerard Faulkner, Marquess of Grayson, are a perfect match in every possible way: lusty appetites, frequent paramours, provocative reputations, and an unwavering unwillingness to spoil a convenient and good marriage by falling in love.

It’s a lovely ruse – until a terrible occurrence forces Gerard to leave her.

When Gerard reappears four years later, he has grown into a powerful, seductive man intent on seducing Isabel.

He’s not the husband she married, but will he be the one to win her heart?

2. Seven Years to Sin

What a wonderful love story! Following the death of Jessica’s husband, Alistair and Jessica reunite.

What we liked best about this novel was how well-developed the characters were.

They were flawed, imperfect, and unapologetically authentic. Miss Day created characters that conquered and resolved their issues.

Life isn’t without flaws. Love isn’t without flaws. Our circumstances are rarely ideal, but standing strong, loving passionately, and striving for the best in the face of adversity is what makes life worth living.

A must read novel!

3. Pride and Pleasure

1818, London. Being an heiress has its drawbacks, as Eliza Martin is well aware.

Fortune hunters are closing in on her, her friends are becoming opportunistic, and someone is orchestrating “accidents” to force her into marriage. Eliza, on the other hand, is far too intelligent to be bullied.

She only needs the proper man to penetrate the nest of suitors in order to identify the perpetrator, and none comes more highly recommended than thief-taker Jasper Bond.

Eliza thinks he’s the wrong man for the job after just one glance at the devastatingly gorgeous Jasper.

No one will think a woman of her intelligence could be coupled with a man of action. Jasper, on the other hand, is determined to persuade her otherwise.

This is a situation he can’t pass up because of the interesting mystery and strong attraction they share.

Client satisfaction is a source of pride for Jasper. It’s his joy to show Eliza that he’s the right man for her.

4. Butterfly in Frost

“Butterfly in Frost,” a stunning comeback by worldwide superstar novelist Sylvia Day, the #1 international millions bestselling author of the Crossfire trilogy, is emotional and heartbreaking.

I could never have envisioned myself here a few years ago. But now I’m settled. I’m in a town I love, living in a home I restored, spending time with new people I like, and working a job that makes me happy. I’m making amends for the past and establishing the foundation for the future.

Garrett Frost, on the other hand, moves in next door.

He’s stubborn and overbearing, a blazing force of nature that throws my existence into disarray.

I’m aware of the ghosts that haunt him and the agony that drives him. Garrett is deadly in any form, but when he’s injured, he’s even more so.

I’m afraid I’m too weak to endure the storm roaring inside him, too weak to bear the anguish. But he’s far too driven and seductive.

And hope may occasionally soar above even the most desolate despair.

5. Afterburn & Aftershock

It’s never a good idea to blend business with pleasure. Politics should never be discussed in the bedroom. When I accepted Jackson Rutledge as a lover, I did a little bit of both. I’m not going to say I wasn’t warned.

He reappeared two years later. I was about to go into a deal I’d worked so hard to close. Since Jax had gone away, I had learned a thing or two under the guidance of Lei Yeung, one of New York’s most astute businesswomen.

He hadn’t changed, but I wasn’t the girl he used to know. I knew precisely what I was dealing with this time, unlike the previous time we’d stumbled into each other’s lives… and how addicting his touch could be.

Jax’s playground was the inner circle of beauty, sensuality, and privilege but this time, I understood the rules. One adage reigns everything in the competitive business world: keep your enemies close and your ex-lovers closer.

6. Bared to You (A Crossfire Novel)

The first book in the Crossfire series comes from #1 New York Times bestselling author Sylvia Day. A daring masterstroke of recklessness and passion that revolutionized the definition of desire and spawned a worldwide sensation.

Gideon Cross appeared in my life like a bolt of lightning in the night. He was stunning and bright, jagged and blazing.

I was pulled to him like I’d never been before to anything or anyone. Even though I knew it would weaken me, I desired his contact like a narcotic.

I was defective and wounded, and he was able to readily expose those flaws in me.

Gideon was aware of the situation. He had his own demons. And we’d turn into mirrors, reflecting each other’s most personal scars and aspirations.

Even though I prayed that the pain of our pasts would not break us apart, the cords of his love altered me.

7. Reflected in You (Crossfire, Book 2)

In the much awaited sequel to “Bared to You,” the sensuous tale of Eva and Gideon continues.

Gideon Cross is a legendary figure. On the exterior, he was as gorgeous and perfect as he was wounded and tortured on the inside.

He was a blazing, shouldering fire that engulfed me in the deepest of delights. I couldn’t stay away any longer. I was adamant about not doing it. He was my addiction, my every want, and I had him all to myself.

My past was just as brutal, and I was just as shattered as he was. We’d never be able to operate together. Except when everything was wonderful, it was too difficult and unpleasant. Those were the most glorious moments of insanity, when the driving desire and passionate love collided.

We were shackled by our predicament. And our desire would push us to the sweetest, most dangerous brink of obsession.

8. Entwined with You (Crossfire, Book 3)

As Eva and Gideon confront their previous traumas and embrace the repercussions of their compulsive wants, the international craze continues.

Gideon Cross had something in him that I craved from the moment I met him. It was something I couldn’t say no to.

I saw a dangerous and wounded soul within that looked very similar to my own. It drew my attention. I needed him as much as my heart needed to beat.

No one knows how much he put his life on the line for me. How threatened I’d felt, or how black and desperate the shadows of our pasts would become.

We attempted to fight the odds, entwined by our secrets. We created our own set of rules and totally succumbed to the exquisite power of ownership.

A great novel by Sylvia Day!

9. Captivated by You: A Crossfire Novel

Captivated by You is the fourth book of Sunday Times best-selling author Sylvia Day’s mega Crossfire series.

Gideon refers to me as his angel, but he is my life’s miracle. My beautiful, wounded warrior, so intent on slaying my demons while refusing to confront his own.

The vows we’d taken should have been stronger than blood and flesh in binding us together. Instead, they reopened old scars, exposed anguish and anxieties, and drew long-suffering foes out of the shadows.

I felt him sliding away from me, my worst fears becoming true, and my love put to the test in ways I wasn’t sure I could handle.

The darkness of his history encroached and threatened all we’d fought so hard for during the happiest moment of our lives.

We had to choose between the known safety of our lives before one other and the battle for a future that looked suddenly unattainable and dismal.

10. One with You (Crossfire Series Book 5)

One with You is the heartbreaking and seductively poignant conclusion to the Crossfire saga, the searing love story that has captivated millions of readers across the world.

It was the simplest thing I’ve ever done to fall in love with him. It happened in a flash. Completely. Irrevocably.

It was a dream come true to marry him. Staying married to him is the most difficult battle I’ve ever faced. Love has the power to alter. Ours is both a haven from the storm and a haven from the most severe of storms. Two broken souls merged into one.

We’ve shared our darkest, most heinous secrets with one another. Gideon is the mirror that reflects all of my shortcomings as well as the beauty I was blind to.

He’s given me everything I’ve ever wanted. Now I have to show him that I can be the rock, the safe haven that he is for me.

We might stand together against those who strive so hard to put a barrier between us.

Our biggest struggle, though, may be fought within the very vows that provide us with strength. Committing to love was only the start. It will either set us free or tear us apart if we fight for it.
