The longer the resistance... 

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 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. . .  (Goodreads)

Seven Years to Sin was my first book by Sylvia Day and it was great! The plot was exciting, the romance was hot and the characters were enchanting. Ms. Day also includes a subplot of Jessica's sister, Hester, and it only added the story. 

Jessica was known as the Diamond of the Season, beautiful beyond measure but appearing cold and reserved, a perfect wife for a future Earl. One secretly witnessed scene of the handsome, Alistair Caulfield, having sex and her whole life is changed. Intrigued to discover the art of love making, she begins her life with her husband Viscount Tarley, fully grasping her womanly desires and passions. She is too soon a widow and needs help to move on.

Alistair Caulfield is the fourth son to a Duke and not well loved by him. Circumstances have allowed him to live a life filled with adventure and minimal responsibility. After his brief encounter with Jessica, he feels so connected to her that the only thing to do was to run away from the temptation of her. After seven years apart their reunion was one that had love, spice and adventure! This is a wonderful story of second chances and Seven Years to Sin is a must read!
