Publisher's Summary

All of London is abuzz over the imminent arrival of Wulfric Bedwyn, the reclusive, cold-as-ice Duke of Bewcastle, at the most glittering social event of the season. Some whisper of a tragic love affair. Others say he is so aloof and passionless that not even the greatest beauty could capture his attention. But on this dazzling afternoon, one woman did catch the duke's eye - and she was the only female in the room who wasn't even trying.

Christine Derrick is intrigued by the handsome duke...all the more so when he invites her to become his mistress. What red-blooded woman wouldn't enjoy a tumble in the bedsheets with a consummate lover - with no strings and no questions asked. An infuriating lady with very definite views on men, morals, and marriage, Christine confounds Wulfric at every turn. Yet even as the lone wolf of the Bedwyn clan vows to seduce her any way he can, something strange and wonderful is happening. Now for a man who thought he'd never lose his heart, nothing less than love will do.

Contains mature themes.

What the Critics Say

"With this series, Balogh has created a wonderfully romantic world of Regency culture and society. Readers will miss the honorable Bedwyns and their mates; ending the series with Wulfric's story is icing on the cake. Highly recommended." (Library Journal)

    "Fantastic Finish!"

    This was an awesome conclusion to the Bedwyn Saga. This was story about the Duke of Bedcastle the last Bedwyn sibling to fall in love. This was one of my favorites in this series. This listen was well worth the credit with a five star review.

    "Ten Stars!"

    I have read this book several times but rushed to buy it at in audio format. Rosalyn Landor is perfect for Mary Balogh's writing. I will listen to this many times!

    "Delightfully damaged characters ending a series"

    Wulfric's story is the one we all waited for. I took back one star for our heroine's protesting beyond the point of sense (no spoiler, I won't say what she's refusing to do). But loved that she leaps before she looks, spills, rips, tears, falls, and generally isn't your usual heroine at all. Definitely a girl I could relate to.

    Finally, finally we get an explanation of Wulfric's frozen demeanor and ducal behavior even to his family. He goes from iceberg to...well, making sense at last while staying true to character. Plus some real surprises that are also true to character. Love it when a hero can go from scary frigid to sympathetic in the course of a book.

    I'm being a bit vague, but I don't want to spoil it for others. The narrator is awesome and I totally lost myself in the story without ever noticing the narrator once things began, which to me is the mark of greatness. Kudos!

    If there was a way to give partial stars, this would honestly be a 4 3/4 as I suspect the author could have kept the conflict cranked without resorting that one last time too many. Regardless, I bought this the minute I could and you won't be sorry if you do.

    "Delightful!"

    The Main character, Chistine, is charming and hilarious. I actually laughed out loud a couple of times. Also, the story was a bit different in its progression, which was nice. Finally, I thought the performance was very good, particularly her handling of the humorous sections...done with subtlety, which made it all the more funny!

    "Mary Balogh does it again."

    Oh - of course there is some predictability about these books but there is also always a surprising twist and new and engaging characters that keep me addicted to the series. Add to that Rosalyn Landor's wonderful narration and I'm wondering how soon the next book will arrive.

    "A Must Read"
    What made the experience of listening to Slightly Dangerous the most enjoyable?

    Balogh crafts such a wonderful story about two individuals who discover their best strengths in getting to know each other deeper. The entire Bedwyn Saga is wonderful, but I think this may be my favorite. Watching the duke discover himself in love is just an amazing thing.


    What other book might you compare Slightly Dangerous to and why?

    If you like Loretta Chase's Lord Of Scoundrels, this is a MUST READ. Sebastian Ballister and Wulfric Bedwyn are both strong with hidden insecurities/vulnerabilities and it's so great to watch their personalities unfold without them ever losing the strength and edge we love in them!


    What about Rosalyn Landor’s performance did you like?

    Rosalyn Landor is one of my top narrators. Right up there with Kate Reading. Very gifted.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    You will find yourself cheering for Wulf to unbend and Christine to help him.

    "My favorite Bedwyn story"

    I really like Wulfric, the hero of this story. His aloof aristocratic manner hides a passionate, sensitive soul. What's not to like? Christine, the heroine, is spunky, fun-loving and camouflages her private sorrow very well. I'm a sucker for misunderstood characters. The narrator is excellent as always. Mary Balogh is not one of my favorite romance authors, but is way above average. I've been reading her books and do like them. I have enjoyed the Bedwyn series, and this my personal favorite. If you like Balogh novels, you'll like this one.

    "The best for last."


    W ufric's story is well-done. I would have been so disappointed if the object of his affections would have been a prim and boring miss. Luckily the lovers are matched well. A fitting wrap up to this Slightly series. And Ms Landor's narration is superb as usual!

    "A good ending to the series"

    This is one of Mary Balogh, better books, it was not weigh down with loads of sex exploits. The story was well though out and compassionate to the two main Characters. In all I have enjoyed the series, it is good to read them in order, but they can be read independently.
