With his laughing eyes and wild, rakish good looks, Lord Rannulf Bedwyn is a hard man to resist. To Judith Law, a woman in need of rescue when her stagecoach overturns, Rannulf is simply her savior, a heroic stranger she will reward with one night of reckless passion before she must become a companion to her wealthy aunt. Imagine Judith's shock when the same stranger turns out to be among England's most eligible bachelors, and when he arrives at Harewood Grange to woo her cousin. Certainly, they had made no vows, no promises, but Rannulf never did forget his uninhibited lover - nor did she forget that one delicious night. And as scandal sets the household abuzz, Rannulf proposes a solution. But when Judith refuses to have him - in love or wedlock - Rannulf has only one choice: to wage a campaign of pure pleasure to capture the heart of the woman who has already won his.

"The Bedwyn siblings are the most fascinating romance protagonists to come along since Jude Devereaux's Montgomery brothers in the 1980s, and Balogh's sensuous Regency-era romances set the standard. They are not to be missed." (Booklist)
Probably. There's something for everybody; romance, deceptions, sex, mystery, revenge and maliciousness, familial love as well as jealousies and discourteous behavior toward family members, haughty class distinctions, a beautiful niece/cousin treated like Cinderella... plus .
When the Duke's brother comes across a wrecked stage coach in the rain. Muddy roads make it impossible to set the stage aright so taking one passenger on his horse with him he sends help back for the others. Naturally he chose a pretty girl to ride with him. He pretends to be someone else, as does she. They spend 2 nights together before the rain lets up. While he is gone to rent a carriage to take her to her supposed destination, she leaves him by taking a public stage before he gets back.
Difficult question to answer, as she always gives a great performance.
The lonely and mistreated poor relative, Judith Law, moved me to feel pity for her. Regardless of her plight in life she puts a smile on her face and tries to make the most of it.
This is my second book in the Bedwyn Saga Series and both were well worth a credit. I enjoyed them both and look forward to more.
Balogh's best series. Great narrator. I've been requesting these for years. Speed up the releases!!!
Love a Damsel in Distress
This audio book was just what I needed. A beautiful, deep, lovely romance!! I forgot how much I love this author. And the narrator...amazing!
Just the book I was looking for and didn't know it.. Stumbled upon it and couldn't put it down once I started listening. Definitely will be listening to more from this author and narrator
"Dreadful narration of a lovely book!"
Ran null is 28, so why has the narrator voiced him as though he were a 60+ pervert? The Rannulf voice is really sleazy, creepy and OLD!!
He is supposed to be a 'Jack the lad', young, vibrant but is voiced like a dirty old man. The rest of the narration is dodgy too - it's put me off the other Mary Balogh books narrated by this narrator! AVOID!!!
A really disappointing experience.
"Wow - what a fantastic storyteller!!!"
Second in the Slightly series I can't wait for 3rd. Excellent, exciting and passionate. Thankyou.
