Having no familiarity with the history, dialect or culture of the period, Ms. Peper did an excellent job of making this reader comfortable with understanding and becoming engrossed in the story. It was a lesson learned that love and circumstances know no boundaries, and that neither time nor pedigree are free from such complications.
In this story Lady Miranda Blake struggles to find balance between responsibilities of position and family, and her questionable future as a wife or being lumped into the dreaded category of being “on the shelf”. Trying to get her long time love to notice her and make a commitment becomes her goal. Unfortunately the plan ignites a deadly rivalry between the handsome Lord Beaumont whom she’s known all her life—and the brash, untitled and uncultured American Derek Lang, temporarily in country on business.
This tale is full of colorful portrayals of time and place, mystery and intrigue, and begs the reader to question—when social standing and marriage are measured by seasons, how does a woman decide which is more important? Her desire for love, or her need for acceptance. I believe The Seventh Season is an enjoyable must read by Regency lovers everywhere.
There is a darkness in The Seventh Season, which although not overt nevertheless like a river running through Miranda's story. The horror and neglect of her early years seem to have left their mark on Miranda, making her a survivor and stronger than most young women of her day. Her negligent, rather whimsical parents seem to lean very heavily on her without realising that they are holding her back from making choices regarding her future. In the background Jason has always been Miranda's hero, however he is being as neglectful as her parents and not coming up to scratch. Miranda is beholden to him for saving her life, but with the passage of time he seems less and less inclined to pop the all important question. That is until the upstart American, Derek,arrives on the scene and the courtship dance begins.
The story starts off at a steady pace and then starts to build, adding drama and intrigue. Truths are revealed and mysteries solved, but the perpetrators of crimes appear to get away without being punished, proving that Regency times weren't too different to our modern day. The attraction between Miranda and Derek is unconventional and whatever Miranda chooses is going to come at a price. I finished reading The Seventh Season with a brooding sense of dissatisfaction as I would have liked to see justice served, but there are times when one has to accept the inevitable and walk away.
This historical romance is full of suspense and intrigue with an intelligent capable female lead - Lady Miranda Blake. She is waiting for her love, Lord Beaumont, to make a commitment. No other suitor compares to him. The brash American Derek Lang enters the story to make her question her choices. Who does she choose? Read the story to find out.
Ms. Peper has captured the flavor of the 18th century with historical references and imaginative descriptions.
Cathy Peper is an engaging story teller.
This is a must read for historical romance and regency romance readers.
This sets the scene for the events that unfold for Miranda as an adult. ‘Left on the shelf’ at twenty-four, she is determined not to be married off into a loveless reunion, but time seems to be running out as she enters her seventh ‘season’ as an eligible young woman.
The author, Cathy Peper, draws us in by the richness and depth of her personalities. Miranda is a woman who knows her own mind, yet she is feisty without being abrasive. The love triangle between Miranda, Lord Beaumont (or ‘Beau’ as she calls him) and the newly arrived American Derek Lang, is superbly done. As the story unfolds the tensions rise between them, culminating in the sword fight which is a highlight of the plot.
Woven into the story line is a cunning subplot of underworld intrigue with an unexpected and thrilling denouement.
This is a book to read in one delicious sitting. A great story!
