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.

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 . . .
