Seven Minutes in Heaven
Seven Minutes in Heaven | Eloisa James
120 posts | 77 read | 3 reading | 80 to read
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 hell 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 shes ever known? All it will take is seven minutes...

Another regency romance to power me through the work day! I enjoyed this one, though I really did not connect with the voice actress on this. Eugenia is smart, ambitious, independent, & there was one point where I felt like saying, “You go, girl!” The male lead, Ward, was not a favorite of mine, especially when he makes an assumption that could ruin everything. Very steamy romance!

I can finally tick off the #AuthorOnLitsy prompt! #ReadWithMrBook

ValPenny Have you read Heart of Stone by John Jackson @Librarybelle ? It is a wonderful historical romance. 2y
Librarybelle @ValPenny No, I have not. Thank you for the recommendation! 2y

#agameoffavorites DAY 3: ROMANCE
Two years ago I got to attend a fabulous panel at the Morristown Festival of Books. Eloisa James and Sarah MacLean were both featured (I got a signed book from each of them). When Eloisa James was touring with My American Duchess, she recommended various romance books including The Rogue Not Taken. My personal favorite romance book is Seven Minutes in Heaven - Eugenia Snowe is such an awesome heroine! @eloisajames

bookandcat Perhaps @EloisaJames would like to share any other favorite books of hers (romance or not) and we can hear straight from the source! P.S. - congrats on your new book release and review! #eloisajames #romance #sarahmaclean 4y

RJHowe the Rogue Not Taken is a great title 4y
EloisaJames Hi there!! I‘m so glad you liked BornW! I have tons of favorite books (romance and not)—just look at my stack! Is that the right word? I adore Litsy so I‘ve talked about a lot of books over the last 2 years. Right now I‘m reading Sarina Bowen‘s new book and waiting for Elle Kennedy‘s to release in the 6th. 😘😘 4y
bookandcat @EloisaJames thank you for responding and for the book recs! Litsy IS pretty great, isn't it? ❤️ 4y
EloisaJames @bookandcat I seriously love it! It‘s got me reading more outside romance too, which is great. 4y
bookandcat @EloisaJames it's so wonderful to broaden horizons! It happened to me but in reverse, I read much more romance now after 1. joining Litsy and 2. attending your Morristown Festival of Books panel (happened around the same time) because it's easier to find recs and authors! 4y
EloisaJames Oh great! It‘s helped meet with romance too—I‘m much more likely to one-click a Litsy rec. 4y

Such a fun read. Eugenia is such a brilliant character. It was lovely to see an older woman who has had a successful marriage already at the center of the romance. Ward makes some assumptions about Eugenia and where she can fit in the life he is making. Due to some things going on, I felt fallout and the logic for it painfully close to home. A fun solid read overall.

Finished this novel, while drinking “Persuasion” tea! Both were excellent!

Round characters, with believable situations! I fell in love with the romantic couple and their families!

My first @EloisaJames novel and I‘m a huge fan; can‘t wait to read more in the Desperate Duchesses series!

Sophoclessweetheart Eeee! I‘ve been eyeing these teas on Etsy. Are they good? Xx 4y

I loved this book! I started it this morning and finished it tonight. I took a break this afternoon for a walk in the woods. We‘ve had about 10 inches of snow over the past few days and the trails were still pretty covered. Warm and sunny day perfect for a walk and a book. I also put the three books mentioned in the notes on hold at the library to read/reread. @EloisaJames 😃📚💕

I devoured this book!
I loved the characterization of Eugenia and Ward as they were both witty, smart, and were clearly in lust from the beginning chapters.
The dialogue is my favorite. Eloisa writes some of the best scenes of dialogue and I am in love with the scenes here just as much as all her previous books.

EchoLogical Isn't she on Litsy? @EloisaJames 👋 5y
mariaku21 I'm not sure I've only been on #litsy for a month. I might look her up. Thanks 💞 5y

Another winner from Eloisa James. The heroine is delightful and I enjoyed seeing characters from earlier series. The central conflict could have been resolved with a single conversation, but it works in context and with the given personalities. Recommend.

#TBRtemptation post 9! #BEA17 edition! From the incredible @EloisaJames comes this installment in the Desperate Duchesses by the Numbers series. Edward Reeve, brilliant inventor & arrogant bastard son of an earl, wants a governess, actually Eugenia Snowe. Her registry provides him with one, but not her. She has a lady's reputation to maintain. So, he kidnaps her! He promises her heaven, she gives him 7 minutes. #blameLitsy #blameMrBook 😎

Let me set the scene: it was Sunday evening after an exhausting weekend (too much peopling for this introvert) and I was searching for a romance with snappy dialogue to calm my weary brain. I thought I was looking for a contemporary but then I checked my email and found this lovely deal in my Goodreads Deals of the Day. It was fate! Eloisa James will give me great dialogue and strong characters and swoons! And she definitely delivered! ❤️

MarriedtoMrT Sorry to report the deal has already expired. ☹️ 5y
Jas16 I loved this one when I checked it out from the library so I snapped up the deal this weekend too. 5y

If you ever wished that the Turn of the Screw had turned out differently, this one's for you. An eminently sensible non-governess, a handsome bachelor who is involved in his wards' upbringing, and zero ghosts (not for lack of conjuring by the orphans being governed). With James's arch and bawdy humor punctuated by vigorous bedsport, heartbreak, and groveling by the hero before the HEA. #romantsy

EloisaJames Ha! There's s comparison I never would have imagined! Thank you for this lovely (startling) review!! 5y

A delightful read! Eugenia Snowe is an enterprising member of the ton who owns and runs an agency for governesses, the best in England. Ward's two young half siblings manage to get through two Snowes governesses in a matter of weeks, and Ward "kidnaps" Eugenia to temporarily help with the children. Along the way, Eugenia - and we - fall in love with the children and with Ward. #romantsy
