    1. Happy release day!!Seven Minutes in Heaven is the 9th book in Eloisa James’Desperate Duchesses series (Desperate Duchesses by the Numbers #3)and, at times, had me laughing so hard I was in tears. Reading this also had me sighing, tsking, and falling in love with Edward Reeve and Eugenia Snowe, and cheering for their happily ever after.

    2. I've given this a B- at AAR, but I can't bring myself to give it 4 stars, as it's not a book I would really recommend. So it's staying at three and being an exception to my normal rounding up rule.Seven Minutes in Heaven is the third in Eloisa James’  Desperate Duchess by the Numbers series which is a kind of Desperate Duchesses TNG – the heroes and heroines featured in these books appeared as children in some of the earlier stories and are now grown up and getting their own.  This means t [...]

    3. I gave this audiobook a B for the story and A- for the narration at AudioGalsI’m a huge fan of Eloisa James’ brand of historical romance. She always manages to infuse witty dialogue and tongue-in-cheek humor in her romances which is sure to bring a smile to my face and have me chuckling while my earbuds are tuned in. I also love the cat and mouse chase that she tends to make the hero and heroine jump through prior to achieving their HEA. Seven Minutes in Heaven is no exception. However, whil [...]

    4. ARC from Edelweiss for honest review.Eugenia our heroine, has been a widow for five years. Eugenia is a savvy business woman who runs a governess registry. She enjoys her work and she is very good at what she does. The ton/establishment aren't too happy with her because she's a "working woman" and they snub her for it. But Eugenia is happy, content and likes her quiet life. Reeve the hero is an illegitimate son who has worked hard to make a fortune for himself, he's an inventor. He is now guardi [...]

    5. I loved this steamy and QUITE delectable story. Recommend highly, perfect for a Valentines romance read! 💝

    6. I enjoy Historical romance but am running out of books from my favorite authors - Amanda Quick, Julie Garwood, Lisa Kleypas and this worried me. I had two options :Devour a mountain of chocolate brownies OR look for a new author, this is how I ended up with my first Eloisa James.I was enchanted and charmed by this book; really, really enjoyed it. Edward and Eugenia had such a fun relationship. Eugenia was a self made woman, she was a widow and built a reputable governess agency. Ward had a roug [...]

    7. What a pignut.In the final installment of the Desperate Duchesses by the Numbers, another resourceful heroine joined the lineup of admirable women, who found a way to stretch the boundaries of acceptable roles for noblewomen in Georgian England without losing their place in society. It is just too bad she was paired with such a nincompoop of a hero; I thought she could have done better. Slight spoilers ahead.A daughter of a marquess and a widow of a viscount's heir, the heroine was a woman of me [...]

    8. Originally posted HERE.I don’t understand the “Desperate Duchesses” name for this series. Nobody is desperate, nor is anybody a duchess!There is no question that Eloisa James can write beautifully, and that her characterisations (particularly for the child characters) are fantastic. This was my first Eloisa James book, and I will seek out more of her work, but Seven Minutes in Heaven didn’t work that well for me for a number of reasons.I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about this b [...]

    9. The book never entirely took off for me, because the plot/conflict hinged on the weakest of premises. And then the hero turned into a giant nutsack, so that kind of killed it dead.

    10. Full review at Smart Bitches, Trashy BooksSeven Minutes in Heaven is written with Eloisa James’ customary wit and charm. It’s an enchanting book with one major caveat – the main conflict could have been resolved in Chapter One if people just spoke clearly. I’m not a fan of stories that revolve around a misunderstanding. Still, I enjoyed it because the writing is so good and the characters so delightful.This book is so fun that it took me a week to consider that every single character is [...]

    11. I'm fairly certain EJ can rewrite the phone book and I'd be swooning. This story was of Edward ("Ward") and Eugenia, and these two did not disappoint.Eugenia was one of the strongest Regency heroines I've read in awhile. It is so refreshing to read about a widow who still mourned her husband, who enjoyed him, and who was truly in love with him. I adored seeing the moment when Eugenia decided she was ready to move on; it wasn't something decided in the throes of passion, but a mature decision mad [...]

    12. Thank Heavens! I am super pumped James used her incredibly vast and beautiful knowledge of english literature in her newest offering. She seems embraced her both her lives to produce an intelligent book that strikes the right chords in my effervescent and romantic heart.Just as a slight warning, this book deals with the deceased ex plot. But it is handled absolutely wonderfully. My favourite lines from the book coming soon.

    13. *Review Up* Not bad, not amazing either.Overall this was a decent wrap up and extension to the Desperate Duchesses series. I liked seeing all the married couples from previous books with their kids all grown up in this. I usually don't like when series jump ahead so far but this was cute. Seeing my fav DD hero, Jem (Lord Strange) as a protective father figure was such a trip. And seeing Leopold, the Duke of Villiers, still being his snarky, naughty-self was a real treat. He has white hair now! [...]

    14. Eloisa James is one my favorite authors - she has a unique style that's engaging, fun and thoroughly enjoyable. Having said that, Seven Minutes in Heaven was not my favorite book of hers - Edward Reeve was an impulsive jackass, who didn't get redeemed in my eyes and I couldn't really connect with Eugenia. I'll 100% get the next book in the series, but this one was not my cup of tea.

    15. Reading this also had me sighing, tsking, and falling in love with Edward Reeve and Eugenia Snowe, and cheering for their happily ever after. All of Eugenia Snowe’s problems start when Edward Reeve, an arrogant bastard son of an earl, bursts into her registry office. He wants a governess and he wants her.

    16. Posted on Les Romantiques - Le forum du siteReviewed by RinouReview Copy from the Publisher2,5/5This is the third volume in the Desperate Duchesses by The Numbers series (subsection of Desperate Duchesses series), of which I didn’t read the previous volumes as I often do. Here we meet Reeve who is given custody of his half brother and sister after their mother’s death. He decides to hire a governess to channel them before the hearing asked by their grandmother who contests the custody.I real [...]

    17. I have to admit that I've not read many books from this author. I liked her Pleasures series and I also read couple of books from her Fairy Tales series, and loved one more than the other. So, after reading this story and loving every minute of it, I've decided to plow through EJ's backlist, working my way down from this book. My local used bookstore was very happy with my purchase this past weekend :)In the first book of the Desperate Duchesses series we meet a bastard son of the hero of that b [...]

    18. Maybe more like 2.5 stars?For a genre that is rife with drama, this book is decidedly lacking in it. And I don't say that in a particularly good way. There's almost nothing to pull you into the story. Ward and Eugenia quickly begin a physical relationship pretty much without further ado. There's no difficulties at all in their arrangement until almost the end of the book. On top of that, Eugenia is too perfect - she's beautiful, she's proper, she's great with children, she's smart, she's got a t [...]

    19. DNF. Insta-lust and a "problem" that could be solved by just talking to each other make for a blah read for me. The whole thing hinges on him not knowing she's a Lady and not just a Mrs. and it's discussed how EVERYONE knows this. I found myself thinking of other books I'd like to read instead too often to finish this. The letters exchanged at the beginning are the reason this gets two stars from me. I could've used a few more pages of that.

    20. It's quite refreshing to read a regency with a non-virgin heroine. Thank you, EJ! So far, this one is my favorite of the the Numbers series. There was a great cast of supporting characters as well, so it will be fun to see who is featured in the next book.

    22. В началото историята беше интересна и забавна, но след това много ми доскучаЗа жалост доста предвидима и без никакви драми и емоции, добре че бяха децата за да се случва нещо!Не си спомням почти нищо от предишните книги от поредицата и след седмица и тази ще бъде забравена.

    23. I had high hopes for this book, but it never really gained any traction for me.Widowed Eugenia Snowe runs an exclusive agency for governesses. When one of her clients, Edward Reeves, informs her that the two governesses she'd sent didn't work out, and that he expects her to fill the position, she reluctantly agrees -- at least until she finds a replacement who can civilize Edward's newly orphaned half-siblings. Edward's determined that the shadow of scandal that dogs his family will not affect t [...]

    24. Originally posted at: Confessions of an Opinionated Book GeekI love reading about the offspring of characters we watched falling in love. It’s fun, it gives us a glimpse into the lives of characters after Happily Ever After and it gives us a brand new adventure set in a world that we already enjoy. Eugenia and Ward are characters we met as children in Eloisa James’ Desperate Duchess series and it was a happy thing to see who they became and how the HAE of their parents (and step-parents) wor [...]

    25. This whole book could have been solved by ONE LITTLE CONVERSATION!!! Still, I loved the intelligent and witty Eugenia. Ward, the hero, was likable when he wasn't being a snobbish jerk. His love for his half-siblings was evident, and he was a nice guy. But seriously, his journey to actually seeing that Eugenia was right for him took way longer than it should've. I liked that this story included children. Lizzie and Otis, Ward's half-siblings, were great in their personalities. The touch of the pe [...]
