Overview

Meet Our Hero . . .

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.

Meet Our Heroine . . .

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 . . .

Meet Poor Mr. Mozart . . .

Or don't. But rest assured, he's spinning in his grave when Gareth and Hyacinth cross paths at the annual—and 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.

I enjoyed how there was no major conflict in the book. Sometimes I just like to read and I don't always need a crazy villain thrown into the mix. Just a little bit of mischief is good for me.

I love this series of books by Julia Quinn..They have the balance of intrigue, romance with a little sizzle thrown in. The Characters are so likable and human that I immerse my self in this story and come out with a smile.. This is a story of a man who is compelled and attracted to a girl for more than her looks..When they kiss there is a tingle, a spark of heat they both feel..the story continues on with these two sneaking out to find a treasure against all of societies boundaries. . When the auhtor talks about his kiss I am there and it is exciting.. isnt that what a good book is for?? I LOVE IT..

Each of the Bridgertons stories are wonderful. I could not put any of them down, ordered them all in hardback, and will love them forever. My only piece of advice, read them in order...you gain so much more enjoyment and laughter when you do. :)

AFTER A DISAPPOINTING 'WHEN HE WAS WICKED' I HOPED THIS NEW BOOK WAS IN KEEPING WITH QUINN'S USUAL WONDERFUL WRITING. AND IT WAS!! IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A STEAMY READ YOU WON'T FIND IT-THIS WRITER-ON A SENSUAL SCALE OF 1-10 BARELY EVER BREAKS A SWEAT WITH A 5 AND SO IT IS WITH THIS BOOK. BUT THE ROMANTIC INTERLUDES ARE MORE THAN SUITABLE FOR THE STORYLINE. THIS IS ALSO NOT A RIB TICKLER AS SOME OF HER BOOKS ARE BUT THERE ARE MORE THAN A FEW SMILES FOR ALL. HYACINTH IS NOT YOUR SIMPERING-EYES DOWNCAST FEMALE OF THE TON. GARETH EVOKES SYMPATHY WITHOUT WHINING ABOUT HIS 'SITUATION' TO HYACINTH-HER FAMILY AND THE READER. IT IS NICE TO VISIT WITH THE EXTENDED BRIDGERTON FAMILY AGAIN AND LOOKING FORWARD TO GREGORY'S STORY-THE LAST OF THE BRIDGERTON CHILDREN. FOR THE FIRST TIME IN A LONG TIME THE ARTIST'S RENDITION OF THE MAIN COUPLE ACTUALLY FITS THE AUTHOR'S DESCRIPTION-A NICE LITTLE TOUCH I WISH ALL ROMANCE BOOKS WOULD SEE TO. DO NOT--I REPEAT--DO NOT READ THE LAST PAGE OF THIS BOOK FIRST-IT WILL SPOIL THE WHOLE BOOK FOR YOU.

After reading Julia Quinn's 'When He Was Wicked', I couldn't wait for Quinn's next book. I was so happy seeing 'It's In His Kiss' at the bookstore that I bought it immediately. However I was really disappointed with the storyline. Sure there were witty and funny dialogue in the story however it lacked the special spark that drives one to continue reading the book. The banters between the main characters became boring and tedious. I hope Julia Quinn's next book will keep to the tradition of 'When He Was Wicked'.

In 1815, his father orders Gareth St. Clair to marry Mary Winthrop as the family needs the money from her dowry. He is stunned because Mary may be a year older than him, but no more than just a child in her mind. He refuses so his sire tosses him out while explaining he is not his son as someone else is his biological father. Stunned, Gareth vows to learn the truth about his roots............... Ten years later Gareth finally has a clue, the diary of his Italian grandmother. He asks intelligent linguist Hyacinth Bridgerton to translate it into English for him. As they work together on the translation and interpretation, they fall in love, but someone willing to kill wants to stop them before secrets surface.......................... Fans of the wonderful Bridgerton tales have watched Hyacinth grow up but remain consistent personality wise from her first appearance as a child through the romantic capers of her six siblings until finally her story is told. The seventh and final Regency of this generation siblings is a terrific entry, one of the best if not the best in this strong line as the audience has waited to see who can match up with the brilliant assertive Hyacinth. Readers will not be disappointed with Gareth as Julia Quinn delivers under extreme pressure to find the right hero................ Harriet Klausner

Brief Synopsis: Hyacinth Bridgerton has had 3 full seasons in London. She's refused a few proposals, and now her mother is ready for her to finally marry. The problem is, the only man she can think about lately is Gareth St.Clair, Lady Danbury's beloved grandson. He's handsome, charming, and witty, but he carries a bit of family baggage. His father despises him and is now endeavoring to ensure Gareth is left with no fortune, only large debts. Gareth decides the best way to prove his father wrong about him is to marry a worthy woman. He realizes Hyacinth is perfect for this purpose, but what happens if they actually fall in love with each other? The Good: Hyacinth is a likable character, and Gareth has much to recommend him as the hero. He's a devilishly handsome rake who also happens to be able to match Hyacinth's quick wit. At the end of the book, he is searching for a way to prove his feelings for Hyacinth. This was a beautiful scene. He was so tender and thoughtful, and this was when I really began to believe he was worthy of marrying a Bridgerton. Julia Quinn gives us the happy ending we expect, and all major loose ends are tied neatly. The Bad: The so-called "mystery" involving the missing jewels is ridiculous. It simply doesn't work in this story. It comes across as an under-developed plot element that attempts to add an air of danger but simply falls flat. I never expected anything to come from it, and of course, nothing did. I was much more interested in the story of Gareth's grandmother (particularly, why she was forced to marry his grandfather). I was hoping for an explanation or just more to Sophia's story and was very disappointed that she played such a small role. Truly, she would have been the most interesting character, and I felt her loss deeply. Regardless of how handsome Gareth may be, he is the hero I've liked the least. When he decides to compromise Hyacinth so she will not be able to back out of their wedding, I was disgusted. I don't know why that part had to be in the book. I don't expect my characters to be perfect, but this was so dishonorable as to be unforgivable. I had to wonder how Hyacinth could ever be happy knowing his true motivations and intentions toward her. It was a bit unbelievable that he was able to fall in love with her so completely, especially considering his past. I thought he probably had some real issues that should have been dealt with first. If these were real people, I think their marriage would be a rocky one. In Conclusion: I had been looking forward to Hyacinth's story all along. She was such a precocious child that I thought her romantic story would be drastically different from the rest. I just somehow expected more--more adventure, more laughter, more passion. However, if you love the Bridgertons as I do, you won't want to miss a minute, even if this is not as spectacular as the previous books. I'm hoping Gregory's story in book 8 will redeem this mediocre addition to what has been one of the best series I've ever read.

Book 7 of the Bridgerton series brings back Lady Danbury, an older matriarch of society that appears in many of the former books as a crusty old curmudgeon who enjoys speaking her mind and is feared by many members of the ton. In this book Lady Danbury serves as a matchmaker to Hyacinth Bridgerton and her grandson, Gareth St. Clair. Hyacinth and Lady Danbury make an interesting pair. Hyacinth has been spending every Tuesday afternoon reading to Lady Danbury for some time but they continue to have a rather acerbic relationship. Hyacinth seems to feel duty-bound to read to Lady Danbury, but is happy when she often falls asleep and therefore ends the reading sessions. Hyacinth has not had much contact with Gareth until one day when he appears during reading time and asks Hyacinth to translate his paternal grandmother¿s diary which is written in Italian (a language Hyacinth has some knowledge of). As Hyacinth and Gareth start uncovering startling facts from this diary they find themselves drawn together romantically. Gareth has never been in love before and yet finds himself falling in love with the willful and stubborn Hyacinth. Hyacinth on the other hand is shocked to find herself developing feelings for such a notorious rake.Gareth¿s unpleasant father starts to interfere with the budding relationship; threatening to tell Hyacinth Gareth¿s paternity secret. Only when faced with losing Hyacinth does Gareth realize that he truly loves her and fights to keep her.Again, a winner from Julia Quinn. She shows that she is capable of exploring many delicate subjects in the unforgiving time of Regency England. Gareth has had such a hard life with his nasty father, but Julia Quinn presents him in a redeemable light. Hyacinth has the potential of being one of those bluestockings that are left on the proverbial shelf.

The Bridgerton series sort of loses momentum as it progresses. This was a perfectly serviceable period romance novel.

It's in his kiss wasn't a bad book nor was it a fantastic one. I liked Hyacinth in the author's previous books. But here, I just found her childish and not in the least, endearing. Gareth was supposed to be Mr. Charming - endowed with both devastating looks and a wicked reputation. Unfortunately, he appeared to be more of a sulking brat who craves for his father's love. Though considering his circumstances, it's only understandable that he would have acted in such a way but there were times where I would have liked to whack him in the head.The only reason why I gave the novel two stars was because of the witty dialogues and certainly not because of the recycled storyline or flat characters.

After reading the Bridgerton series for almost a year now, it's time to finally say goodbye. I have one more book (and the epilogues!) to go and man, I am so sad. I just adore this family so much and saying goodbye will definitely be hard. While I'm not a big re-reader, I think I can say I will this series. While this wasn't my favorite of the series, I did still enjoy both Hyacinth and Gareth. Hyacinth was a spunky thing and I just had so much fun with her. Her relationship with Lady D was great and it was fun to see them play off one another. Gareth was sweet too and I felt for him with how he was treated by Lord St. Clair. We saw firsthand how he has his hands full with Hyacinth and I loved how frustrated he could get with her. And when he declares his love for her? Be still my heart!
