Very good book. Eugenia i

Very good book. Eugenia is the daughter of a marquis, a widow who lost her husband, the son of a viscount, in a boating accident seven years earlier. They had been very much in love, and in her grief, Eugenia needed something to give her life purpose. She started an agency which provides governesses to society members, though some look down on her for going into "trade". She has a reputation for providing the best, until she runs into Edward "Ward" Reeve. Ward is the illegitimate son of an earl who has recently been given guardianship of two younger half-siblings. The children have had an unusual upbringing so far and he needs to prepare them for their new life in society. When a Snowe governess quits without notice, he confronts Eugenia with his demands. There are sparks between Ward and Eugenia from the beginning. Their relationship starts via some rather amusing letters as she attempts to help him with his siblings. Their correspondence makes Eugenia feel alive in a way she hasn't for a long time. Ward is intrigued by the woman he believes is a former governess, by her wit and intelligence, and by her beauty. Besides wanting the very best in care for his siblings, he wants Eugenia. I mostly liked Ward. He was smart, had a great sense of humor, and obviously loved his younger brother and sister. As soon as he found out about them, he upended his entire life to make a home for them. I loved his patience and understanding about their grief. There are some terrific scenes with him and the children that are really sweet and heartwarming. However, I was a bit frustrated with Ward throughout the book because of his attitude about Eugenia. For a man who spent his life being looked down on because of his illegitimacy, he turns around and does the same thing to her. Because he thinks she is not a "lady", he can only sleep with her, not consider marrying her. He is rather oblivious to all the indications that he is wrong. I kept waiting for him to discover his mistake and feel like the idiot he was. I loved Eugenia. She is smart and warmhearted and has an amazing inner strength. In spite of some of the attitudes of the society women, she continues living her life the way that makes her happy. She has mourned her husband for seven years and is finally beginning to come out of her self-imposed seclusion. Her attraction to Ward Is a further wake-up call for her, as she realizes that she is finally ready to move on a little bit. I liked the way that she makes her decision to indulge in an affair with him, doing what feels right for her. I enjoyed the development of their relationship. There was friendship, coming from their mutual desire to do what was best for the children. There was also the burning attraction between them, which occasionally overpowered their common sense. Ward's desperation for both help with the children and for Eugenia herself, led him to practically kidnap her and take her to Oxford with him. Once they were there, I loved seeing them work together with the children. There are some great scenes showing how the kids bring them closer together. At the same time, the heat between them is explosive, and their alone time is incredible. It doesn't take long for Eugenia to realize that what she feels for Ward is more than physical. She can't help dreaming of making a life with him and the children. Ward's feelings are also changing, but he resists with all his ability. After all, if he is going to give the children the entry into society they need, he is going to have to marry "up", and a former governess just won't do. Things come to a head after a misunderstanding, and Ward says some really hurtful things out of ignorance and pride. I ached for Eugenia and the devastation she felt. I was truly impressed with the way she handled it. Ward's realization of his idiocy is compounded when he discovers the truth about her background. His reception when he goes after her is everything he deserves, and I liked that things don't go the way he wanted. I loved that he actually had to work to gain her forgiveness, and his "grand gesture" at the end was excellent. The children in this story are truly unique. From Lizzie's veil and dramatic recitations to Otis's pet rat, they are a real challenge to Ward and Eugenia. They are an interesting combination of innocence and experience, and they quickly work their ways into Ward's and Eugenia's hearts. Running through the story is the reason behind Ward's desperation to "tame" the children. Their grandmother is suing for custody and he has to do everything he can to make it clear that he is the best person to raise them. The grandmother is a really unpleasant person through most of the book. I loved seeing how both Ward's and Eugenia's families use their influence to help him, but it is Ward's own words that are the most effective. I loved seeing so many characters from previous books come together in this one to bring it to a happy conclusion.

Wow! I have to say that I

Wow! I have to say that I love Eloisa James and have yet to be disappointed by a book. This one is no different. Seven Minutes in Heaven is Ward and Eugenia's romance and what a romance it is. Fans of historical romance that will make you laugh, sigh, cry, rant at the hero and cheer them on need to read this one. If you are new to Eloisa James you won't be lost but will be eager to read more. Another great story from a master storyteller.

Eugenia Snowe has the bes

Eugenia Snowe has the best registry for governesses in England and Ward Reeve desperately needs a governess for his newly discovered half-brother and sister. This leads to all sorts of charming complications and romance for the widowed Eugenia and illegitimate Ward. The children are wonderful, eccentric, but not over the top and add a lot to the story. I read a lot of Regency romance, but for some reason, I have not read much Eloisa James which is something I must correct. This is an endearing story, and I like both lead characters very much. The author developed their characters slowly but deeply so that the reader had a good understanding of what they were like by the time their romance reached its culmination. I will definitely get some more of her books to read.

Eloisa James's fans canno

Eloisa James's fans cannot miss out on this book! Just finished the book! Every time I thought I have my favourite book all picked out, EJ would go and write a new one!! Worth my sleepless in Seattle stayed up reading. Say no more.... not to be a spoiler here. This is an "All-Stars cast" story!! (towards the end anyway) What a way to end the beloved "Desperate Duchesses" series I & II together, IMO. And no, you don't need to worry about having to go and read the first 6 books in order to read "Seven Minutes," you can do that later. No spoiler to upset the original DD, nor this new one either. And if you, like me, read the orig DD looooong time ago, ages ago..... the names and characters will come back to you, just enough to give you that warm reminiscence of your beloved 'ol stories, enough to remind you why you love them then, and want to go back and revisit them all again. It's all one big HEA family. Would've given it more than 5 STARS and 2 Thumbs Up!

If you are looking for a

If you are looking for a historical love story that doesn't feature a virginal miss that needs extreme coaxing, wooing and gentle kisses to drop her proverbial drawers -then you will love this book. I loved the story line -it reminded a bit of one of Amanda Quick's books - A widow (who is actually a peeress) owns a Governess agency -a wrong side of the blanket gentleman with a step-brother and sister to raise, needs a governess - hilarity (well at least amusement) ensues, several governesses take to the road, heat builds between Ms Snowe (owner) and Mr. Reeve (Gentleman of dubious lineage) and let me tell you the heat is intense when you hit the 50% mark and I loved the allusion's to Fifty Shades of Grey. Mistakes are made, feeling hurt but of course, all will be well in the end. I forgot how much I loved most of Ms James writing and after reading this I think I will be re-reading her earlier works and buying some of later books to add to my library! *ARC supplied by publisher.
