Then, and only then, will you have a decent tender book about Lady Jess witnessing, (when she was still a naive young girl on the eve of her wedding) Lord Alistair (son of an Earl) earning money as he has sex with Lady ? during a house party. This act sticks with her and she fantasises about him for 7 years, even during her happy marriage to Benedict but unfortunately Benedict dies however he leaves her a plantation in Jamaica to sell.
She embarks on a ship that is being Captained by Alistair (who has always half loved Jess) and emotions, attraction, and sexual tension build as the 2 lovers cannot deny each other any longer..... But they still have to return to England. It's a hot yet tender tale of love overcoming all - including time.
The problem occurs as soon as Fiona Underwood (the narrator) opens her mouth and thus another good book is ruined. Thankfully I could distort her voice by double speeding her voice (he he he) and I actually got through it with my sanity intact.
Worth a credit? The book is but the narrator isn't and, as a fan of Sylvia Day's work, I feel robbed of a good book. So, I hope whoever is responsible for the narration will get this re-narrated quickly.

Would you try another book from Sylvia Day and/or Fiona Underwood?
Actually I don't know. It seems like the author has a tendency to repeat herself.
What was most disappointing about Sylvia Day’s story?
The lack of warmth and genuine passion which I found in the Crossfire novels. Also that the author repeat both story and replicas from the Crossfire novels!
What didn’t you like about Fiona Underwood’s performance?
It's too theatrical. The characters sounds foolish.
What character would you cut from Seven Years to Sin?
All of them...
Any additional comments?
I listened to the end of the book, but now I will delete it from my library.
On the other hand, I will start over again with Bared to you...!

I am a great lover of Sylvia Day books but I have to say this is not one of her better books. The storyline is not bad but found far to much descriptive language used to outline the scenes. The characters are believable but it is written in a style of Jane Austen without the panache and credibility. The story itself isn't bad, and it is fair to say some of the scenes grab your attention, but the style and period of the writing lets it down for me. The narration is ok compared to some audio books and is worth a read if you like Sylvia Day but for me I think I'll stick with Sylvia Days modern take on relationships.
