Overview

Seven Minutes in Devon by Catherine Gayle

During a minutes-long span three years ago, their lives were forever changed when Lady Morgan Cardiff nearly drowned.

Returning to the disastrous scene for the first time, Emma Hathaway is older, wiser-and ready to move on. With her parents quickly aging, she needs a husband. Alas, she is an awkward, bookish girl with no dowry to recommend her, and she is far from being an Incomparable or an heiress who might rouse a gentleman's interest. Her hopes of changing the ton's view of her are dashed upon the arrival of the others involved in that life-altering moment. Aidan Cardiff's perpetual glares prove he blames Emma for Morgan's scarred, blind condition. His unfounded hatred alone leaves Emma shaken, but his unbidden advances threaten to thwart her husband-hunt.

Ever since his sister's failed attempts to take her own life, Aidan Cardiff has been a loathsome, brooding artist. He's spent three years creating artwork to depict the revenge he'd like to exact against anyone, save himself, who can be blamed for Morgan's pervasive melancholy. Yet his art has been far from enough to assuage the rage he's built inside. Morgan is finally ready to live again, but Aidan fears letting her out of his sight-particularly with Emma Hathaway, the chit whose very existence sets his blood to boiling. But is the heat fueling his fire due solely to his anger, or is there something more?

Just loved the complicated characters—they are real and flawed, and I loved watching them butt heads. This is not your typical fluffy romance - it is deep and a little dark, making the ending that much more satisfying

Liked the heroine, hero alittle bit of a depressing pain and too involved with how his world is revolving around himself...but made him just likeable enough....james better be one of the good guys!!!

This book is intense! First Aidan has an unreasonable hatred for Emma because he blames her for the near-tragedy with his sister Morgan. Then he becomes almost obsessed with Emma and falls passionately in love! Emma was just hoping to find a safe, steady husband at this summer house party, but now there are two men fighting for her hand. There are a few points of mystery that are not cleared up by the end of the book, which is annoying. However, I'm sure they will be further explained in the continuing Cardiff Siblings series. I'm intrigued enough to want to read more.

Definitely a darker take on the Regency, which I loved. The characters are compelling. I couldn't put it down.
