The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, began having sex with the boy shortly after he turned 16 while she was in her 30s.
Lincoln Crown Court heard the teenager’s dad became suspicious when he found his partner and son naked in bed together.
The court heard when confronted, the woman replied – It’s just a bit of fun.
The teenager’s father then hid a dictaphone in the house which recorded audio of sexual activity.
The woman told her stepson he was the father of her unborn baby when she became pregnant.
But when the child was born, DNA tests confirmed it was, in fact, the boy’s father who was the parent.
The victim finally came forward and was interviewed by police when he was aged 20.
He went on to tell police that his stepmother began flirting with him when he was just 15 and full sexual activity began shortly after his 16th birthday.
The victim told police that sexual intercourse occurred on an almost daily basis for two years until he was 18.
The woman pleaded guilty to three charges of sexual activity with a family member.
Defending, Karen Walton said, She is utterly appalled by her behavior and still struggles to understand why she acted like this for such a long time.
Sentencing, Judge Julie Warburton told the woman it was an appalling catalog of events.
The woman was also ordered to register as a sex offender for life and made the subject of a sexual harm prevention order.
