The backstory, that Lady Morgan Cardiff was absolutely devastated by the love of her life, so much so that she attempts suicide several times, sets the stage for the relationship between the hero and heroine, Aidan Cardiff and Miss Emma Hathaway. One of those suicide attempts, drowning in a river, was unable to be prevented by Emma. Although Lady Morgan was rescued, her artist-brother Aidan decided it was entirely Emma's fault for not paying enough attention to his sister; he believed Emma's nose was too stuck in a book to care. Flash forward three years to a house party, at the same house where the river suicide attempt occurred, with all the original characters reassembled (plus a few extra ladies and gentlemen). Emma has no dowry or looks to speak of but she realizes she needs a husband, hence the party (which also happens to be her sister's and her husband's home). Emma is still bookish and quiet but she is resolved to find a man and not be a further burden to her parents or sister. Lady Morgan arrives a little more damaged from her subsequent attempts to take her own life but her outlook has completely recovered: she is more whole and content than ever before. Her two brothers, the Earl and Aidan, have sheltered her to the point of smothering but she is patient and understanding, although ready to live a little again. This matters naught to her brother Aidan, who in the three intervening years has managed to blame Emma for everything but the war with Napoleon and the high price of corn. She has been his sole artistic muse for painting death, destruction, and all things disturbing. Interestingly, Lady Morgan's other brother, the Earl, does not blame Emma at all and cannot understand why Aidan is so determined to hate Emma.Read more ›

This is the first book I read by Ms. Gayle and I enjoyed it. I look forward to reading more of her books.

Three years ago Aiden Cardiff and Emma Hathaway were present when Aiden's sister, Lady Morgan tried to kill herself. From that moment on Aiden blamed Emma for every suicidal attempt Lady Morgan tried. However, Emma never did aid Lady Morgan in anyway to kill herself, it is just easier to place blame on a person that is not around.

Three years has past since that terrible afternoon and now Aiden and Emma are forced to attend a house part given by Emma's sister and brother-in-law, Lord and Lady Burington, which mind you Lord Burington aka David is Aiden's childhood best friend. Emma is at this house party to find a husband. Aiden and Lady Morgan are there to reemerge themselves into society. Since Aiden cannot stand Emma he should have no problem staying away from her, right? How hard can it be for Emma to find a husband?

Sometimes, one needs to confront the past to move onto the future.

I really enjoyed this book. Aiden is dark and the brooding type. He really detest Emma for no reason, and normally that would make me not like him very much, but when he realized that maybe he's being a bit too rough on Emma he becomes a likable guy.

Emma is a strong heroine. She doesn't sit idly by and let things happen to her. She goes out and takes action. She often is saving someone without even realizing it. She is bookish and witty and I love her stance for the underdog. She considers herself to be an outcast so she takes it personally when anyone is a bully. Emma is a young lady I would love more or today's ladies to emulate.

I look forward to the next book in this series.

YAY, a book on my personal TBR list complete! Well, I just finished Seven Minutes in Devon by Catherine Gayle. I have to say that it is a little different from the other Catherine Gayle books and stories I have read prior. Still a good read, but just a little different. I would even go so far as a little darker. Here is my reason for me saying this:

Aidan Cardiff blames Emma Hathway for his sister's attempts on taking her life. Granted Emma has nothing to do with Lady Morgan trying to take her life. It's just easier to redirect your anger to someone else than put the blame on someone you love dearly, which makes Emma an easy scapegoat.

During the three years they last saw each other, Aidan's animosity hasn't diminish at all and now stuck at a house party with Emma. Yet, Emma has on a couple missions to complete: 1) Avoid Aidan as much as possible. 2) Try to find a husband, so she won't be a burden on her family. Sounds like a simple task, right? However, it doesn't help that Aidan can't leave her lone or stop brooding over her.

Yes, a little darker, but still an enjoyable read. I can't wait to see what happens to the other Cardiffs. I wonder who will love Lady Morgan. It would be have to be someone who can over look her scars and blindness. Then Aidan older brother, I kind of worry about him. The girl he has tender feelings just got engage. ACK! So, this shall be interesting to see how they find their happy endings. So, if you are looking for brooding hero who has a problem directing blame, you might want to read Seven Minutes in Devon. It's a pretty good read and good start for the beginning for Ms. Gayle's new series.
