She is honest about her feelings as Ward reassesses his prejudices and assumptions. Even though Eugenia forgives him far too easily for his mistakes, their romance is a fine addition to the series.

Synopsis

Witty and elusive Eugenia Snowe has all society begging for one of her premiere governesses-except the powerful Edward Reeve, who bursts into her office with his arrogant demands.

No question that Eugenia enjoys crossing wits with the brilliant inventor, but Ward wants far more than a governess. He wants Eugenia, and he’ll stop at nothing to have her-including kidnapping.

Will Eugenia lose her heart in the most reckless gamble of her life, or will she discover the sweetest pleasure she’s ever known?

All it will take is seven minutes...

RITA Award–winner James (My American Duchess, 2016) woos readers with another irresistible liaison of lushly sensual romance and deliciously wicked wit, and her flair for crafting unforgettable, richly dimensional characters is the satisfying center of this scrumptious literary confection.

While “Seven Minutes” isn't James at her best, it is still fun along the way. The previous two books in the series, "Three Weeks with Lady X" and "Four Nights with the Duke" are better, so there's hope that any subsequent books in the series would be worth reading.

Perhaps it is because Eloisa James is so talented that the flaws of this book stand out so starkly. Perhaps it is because this reviewer likes both historical romance and books about the history of language.

All in all, I’d have to say that this being my first ever historical romance I was very pleasantly surprised. I could tell that this was part of a series but it was not so that you must read the others to understand the characters.
