Book Description

7 Dec 2006 Bridgerton Family (Book 7)
Gareth St. Clair is in a bind. His father, who detests him, is determined to beggar the St. Clair estates and ruin his inheritance. Gareth's sole bequest is an old family diary, which may or may not contain the secrets of his past and the key to his future. The problem is - it's written in Italian, of which Gareth speaks not a word. All the ton agreed: there was no one quite like Hyacinth Bridgerton. She's fiendishly smart, devilishly outspoken and - according to Gareth - probably best in small doses. But there's something about her - something charming and vexing - that grabs him and won't quite let go. But rest assured, he's spinning in his grave when Gareth and Hyacinth cross paths at the annual - an annually discordant - Smythe-Smith musicale. To Hyacinth, Gareth's every word seems a dare, and she offers to translate his diary, even though her Italian is slightly less than perfect. But as they delve into the mysterious text, they discover that the answers they seek lie not in the diary, but in each other and that there is nothing as simple--or as complicated - as a single, perfect kiss.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Hyacinth Bridgerton, youngest of eight, isn't like other girls in the ton. She's forthright, outspoken, intelligent and good friends with Lady Danbury. In fact she's so like the fearsome dowager countess that she's scared off her suitors altogether.

When a heart-to-heart conversation with her mother points this out, Hyacinth is forced to admit that while most men don't stand a chance of keeping up with her, the few who do... terrify her completely. Not that it matters, of course, because there's no one around who she's the slightest bit interested in.


Gareth St. Clair, handsome, charming, intelligent and the grandson of Lady Danbury. If anyone can keep up with Hyacinth, it would be him. But he has such a terrible reputation, not to mention that he always appears to be laughing at her. But he also has a challenge for her that she simply can't resist.

Lady Danbury returns! Ever since her meddlesome matchmaking in 'How to Marry a Marquis', Lady D has been a staple of Julia Quinn's books, playing a vital role in 'Romancing Mr. Bridgerton' and making her presence most definitely felt throughout the majority of the rest. Here she stars in the very first chapter, alongside Penelope and Hyacinth, in a wonderful scene that sets the tone for the book: witty, light-hearted fun, with the occasional dash of sarcastic humour.

Although Hyacinth and Gareth are a wonderful pair - and very well suited to each other - this book is made by a few fabulous Bridgerton moments: Hyacinth's two conversations with her mother; Gareth's interview with Anthony; Gregory's appearence. They all add that extra touch to JQ's usual humourous romance.

And once again it ends with a perfect epilogue (don't miss the Second Epilogue e-book - it's worth downloading!). Ever since her first appearence in 'The Duke and I', Hyacinth has been a witty scene stealer, so it's great to see her end up with the story she deserves.

4.0 out of 5 stars awesome 27 Oct 2008
this is the 7th book in the bridgerton series but it didnt feel like you needed to read all the previous ones to enjoy this one, does well on its own as a stand alone book. although i did have to keep looking at the family tree to keep all the siblings etc clear in my head. some bloopers but doesnt take away from the story and i love the sparring between hyacinth and gareth.

5.0 out of 5 stars oh yes .... definitely in his kiss 12 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Review taken from my Blog Post #118 in May 2011 (after I had borrowed the book from the local library)

What more can I say about a Julia Quinn book than I have said so many times before ... sparking, fun, intelligent, in all SUCH FUN! Another 5 ***** Star read - I truly think she is my most favourite author.

This tale is another in the Bridgerton series, and features the youngest sibling, Hyacinth. So very, very smart and holding out for somebody whom she can love and will tolerate her intelligence and not feel threatened by it. She is also unprepared to compromise and dumb down for any man. I felt that she really wanted to actually fall in love with somebody who could be her equal.

Then Gareth St Clair rocks up on the scene ..... following the death of his Brother, he's the sole heir to the Baron St Clair (his Father) and they truly hate one another. In fact Lord St Clair is set to ruin the family fortune rather than see it go to Gareth

Gareth left home at a tender age, and was taken under his Grandmother's wing (the formidable Lady Danbury), on whom he dotes. Gareth's sole heirloom is an old diary written by the Baron's Mother, which is in Italian. He speaks not a word, but Hyacinth does a little. Even though Gareth admits that Hyacinth is best in small doses they set to unravel the truth ........... and fall in love?

4.0 out of 5 stars A sparkling, yet tender Regency romance 18 Nov 2007
By EvK
Sparkling dialogue - the heroine irrepressible reminscent of a Lizzie Bennett or Heyer's Horatia Winwood. And Lady D very much in the tradition of the great Heyer matriachs - overbearing, meddlesome, dismissive of fools yet meriting much respect. What sets this apart for me are the moments of tenderness between the hero and the heroine. Hyacinth's heart opens to Gareth upon witnessing a scene of cruelty and hatred between "father" and son, and Gareth in turn finds himself defending Hyacinth against those threatened by her sharp tongue and who think her unmarriageable.
There are also more than a few moments that jar with my Heyer schooled notions about the Regency period - Hyacinth's "comfortable walking shoes" under her evening wear is just one. However, the interesting storyline and lively characters compensate - and I think the ending works very well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Light reading only 31 Dec 2006
By Amazon Customer VINE VOICE
This is the latest in Julia Quinn's Bridgerton series and in book 7, its Hyacinth's turn to find love, and a little adventure along the way. Hyacinth had to be one of my favourite characters in all of the book for being the youngest and most outspoken of the Bridgerton siblings, and she finally met her match in Gareth St Clair. The plot revolves around Hyacinth translating Gareth's grandmother's diary that is written in Italian. In the diary are secrets about Gareth's family that he is trying to find out, and naturally along the way he and Hyacinth develop an affinity towards each other. The book is pure brain candy, but one that could be taken in small doses. I loved Julia Quinn's earlier books, but I found the storyline sweet, if a little bland and the adventures were not that exciting and then the story ended a little bit abruptly with a chapter at the end to tie up all the lose ends.

It was interesting to read about what some of the other Bridgerton siblings were doing, those who were mentioned in the book, but I think since the series is nearing its end with on Gregory Bridgerton to be married off, I hope that the final book will be more riveting.
