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.

    "Best book in the series"
    Any additional comments?

    I loved it!!! In this book the Duke reminds me a great deal of Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice. I liked the Duke character all through the books in this series and was glad to finally listen to a book about him. All the Duke's brother/sister/in laws from previous books are in this book too, but it still works as a stand alone book,

    The female lead (Christine) got on my nerves a few times, I would rather see her as more refined, but I still liked her. I am in love with the Duke. He is a fantastic character. The story is told from both Christine's and the Duke's point of view, which gives a better feel for their characters and their thoughts. Nothing major happens because the story is about the relationship between Christine and the Duke growing from first sight of one another and forward to the end. Really a great story.

    "The best one yet"

    This is the best one yet as my title says I read it in hardcover several years ago and now listening to Roslyn Landor's translation into audible was absolutely wonderful. My favorite characters came to life and had me smiling and chuckling. I can read and listen to it again and again.

    "Adding to my list of FAVORITE books!"

    I think I'm in love with the Duke of Bewcastle. What a great book. I laughed, I cried, I sighed! I'll be listening to this book again and again. Listen to the whole series though. You can't miss the other Bedwyn's!

    Story
    "She saved the best for last"
    Would you listen to Slightly Dangerous again? Why?

    Yes. This is the definition of a comfort read for me. I read the book three times previously and was thrilled to see it was finally on audio read by Roslyn Landor. Snapped it up as soon as I saw it was available.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Wulf. If you read the previous books, Wuf is a very enigmatic character. I wondered how Balogh would unbend Wulf enough to show him fall in love. Well she did it by building on the foundation of the character that she had introduced us to over the previous books. Wulf doesn't unbend, he stays Wulf. Instead of changing him, she delves deeper under the surface and lets us peek into the inner person. It makes for an effective and sweet and sexy love story.


    Which character – as performed by Rosalyn Landor – was your favorite?

    Chirstine. So funny and vivacious and irreverent. Just the perfect heroine for the brooding hero, Wulf. And I think Landor infused all of that in her narration.

    Story
    "A Nice End to the Bedwyn Saga"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The female lead in the tale. She was written in a way that kept her charming and fun without coming across as too simple or too idiosyncratic. Her fundamental nature was so different from Wulfric's that it made their match interesting. I appreciated who Mary Balogh chose for the patriarch of this family successfully ending this series.


    What does Rosalyn Landor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Rosalyn Landor is a great reader for this genre. I've heard her read several historical romances, and I'm never disappointed to see her name after "Narrator."


    Any additional comments?

    I wasn't sure if I would enjoy Wulfric's love story given what I knew of him from the predecessor books of this series, but the author pulled it off. The glimmer of humanity you occasionally see of Wulfric in the other books comes to life in his own tale nicely. If you like any of the other books of this series, you should include this one.

    "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!

    "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.
