'Eloisa James is extraordinary.' People Magazine

'Nothing gets me to a bookstore faster than Eloisa James.' Julia Quinn

A sparkling new Regency romance from New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James, linked to Four Nights with the Duke and Three Weeks with Lady X

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.

He promises her heaven.

No question that Eugenia enjoys crossing wits with the brilliant inventor, but soon it becomes clear that 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?

She gives him seven minutes.

From Publishers Weekly

28 November 2016 – James continues her long-running and multigenerational Desperate Duchesses series (Four Nights with the Duke) with an enjoyable romance set in early 18th-century London. Eugenia Snow, a viscount's widow, is free to enjoy herself amid London's social whirl, but she prefers to focus on running her agency for high-end governesses. When Theodore "Ward" Reeve strides into her office demanding a replacement governess for his orphaned half-siblings, she is tempted to be scandalous for the first time since her husband's death seven years before. The attraction between Eugenia and Ward is instantaneous, and they leap into an enjoyable no-strings-attached affair. James avoids the clich of a widow who didn't find sexual satisfaction with her first lover; Eugenia talks frankly about enjoying the physical side of her marriage. Series fans who remember Ward and Eugenia as children will enjoy seeing them united as adults. Eugenia bonds with Ward's kids and showers them with love, understanding, and laughter. 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.
