Septimus Berowne, poet, has no intention of succumbing to the warmth and charm of the wealthy Lady Louisa Shittlehope. Can he to stop her embroiling herself in his family’s affairs? She befriends his sisters and his brothers have designs on her fortune. Mistaken identity and a madcap chase ensue. Society’s disapproval is certain. Or is Louisa in more danger from the attraction of the poet’s delightful wit?
There really is a sweet romance [well, a couple of romances] and the large family, as depicted, has an element of the realistic in it, as one would find such varied personalities and genuine disorders in any real-life large family of children who have, essentially, raised themselves.
Don't worry - Sigmund Freud is not the author of this, despite how my review reads! It really is a delightfully pleasant escape!!! You will laugh out loud aplenty. Recommended.

Bailey's story features a cast the consists of Septimus's outrageous siblings, he has nine, who do an excellent job of driving the plot forward.
Anyone who enjoys sweet romances, masquerade balls, heroines who have a great deal of common sense, and sword fights will be very happy with Elizabeth Bailey's Seventh Heaven.

When I began it seemed farcical and I had two new releases lined up on my Kindle BUT I began this awesome little story and it's the best thing I've read in absolute ages. The author named the H's family after latin numerals and whilst it sounds ridiculous, it was very, very funny. The H is a poet and the author had me in love with him only a few sentences after introducing him. As for the h, she was adorable. The secondary characters are numerous and well written. It's a romp of a book and most worthy of reading.
