When I went to read Bared To You last fall I found out that it was when Sylvia Day wrote Seven Years to Sin that she was inspired to write that story (Bared To You). After reading Bared To You I went to purchase Reflected In You and accidentally bought Seven Years to Sin. For that reason, it’s surprising that it took me months to read it. I finally decided to sit down and read it since I was going to reread Bared and Reflected preparation of the publishing of Entwined with You in June.
I hope that wasn’t too much introduction to tell you about how much I enjoyed Seven Years to Sin. I’ve always been into history so it’s no surprise that I would enjoy historical romance, which is the setting for Seven Years to Sin – Victorian, England.
The protagonist is Jessica, daughter of a Duke and engaged to an Earl and future Duke. The first chapter starts out, well, HOT! And Sylvia doesn’t disappoint. She weaves an interesting story into a romantic setting. She makes you love the characters, gives you heartache and stress and then a happy ending. It is a smutty romance novel, it’s supposed to have a happy ending. But I won’t tell you what happens in the middle, that’s for you to discover yourself.
But rest assured, the novel is a steamy, quick read. If you like historical romance, you’ll like this. Although the story does not directly relate to the Bared to You series, I think you can see where the idea might have come from in this story.
