Publisher's Summary

Growing up with four unruly brothers has made Freyja Bedwyn far bolder than most society ladies. From feisty manner to long, tumbling hair, Lady Freyja is pure fire - a woman who seeks both adventure and freedom.

Adventure soon finds her on a visit to Bath, when a handsome stranger bursts into Freyja's room and entreats her to hide him. His name is Joshua Moore, Marquess of Hallmere, a man with a hell-raising reputation of his own who is quickly intrigued by the independent beauty. So intrigued, in fact, that he makes her a surprising request: to pose as his fiancée and help thwart his family's matchmaking schemes.

For two people determined to be free, it's the perfect plan, until passion blindsides them both. For as Joshua sets out to achieve his complete seduction of Freyja, a woman who has sworn off love is in danger of losing the one thing she never expected to give again: her heart.

    Story
    "A Humorous and Entertaining Book"
    If you could sum up Slightly Scandalous in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, high-spirited, exciting!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Slightly Scandalous?

    That's a tall order for a book chock-full of memorable moments. I'll start at the beginning when a man enters Freyja Bedwyn's room at an Inn on her journey to Bath wanting a place to hide. Encountering the same man in Bath she socks him in the nose for a supposed transgression.


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

    I liked both Freyja Bedwyn and Joshua Moore, Marquess of Hallmere, equally well. They played off each others personality for a humorous and enjoyable listen.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were several moments in the book that evoked emotions; laughter, anger, etc.


    Any additional comments?

    The Bedwyn series have all been exceedingly entertaining but I think this book is my favorite.

    "Freyia Finally!"

    Finally Freyia's story! Love the third book in the series starring the oldest Bedwyn daughter. It started with a fake engagement that ended in marriage. Well worth the credit, a great listen.

    "Absolutely wonderful"

    It was a perfect historical romance. It was such a meaningful story I cried in happiness toward the end and don't know that I have ever done that more than a few times throughout a lifetime of daily reading. Narration was perfect, as usual, and can't say enough about the story. Can't wait to read the next in this series.

    Story
    "A Bedwyn Win"
    Have you listened to any of Rosalyn Landor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, and she delivers splendidly once again.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this installment of the series. I appreciated that Mary Balogh remained true to Freyja's character throughout the book while simultaneously giving her layers that added depth and relatability. The romance was compelling in that the first initial encounters between the protagonists were conflictual with just the right amount of tension to carry the romance forward, and when things did heat up, they sizzled. Joshua was a perfect mix of gentleman and rake so that he was a worthy male counterpart to Freyja. I always enjoy the addition of the other Bedwyn's as minor characters, and this book brought so many of them into the folds, it was a nice treat. Definitely recommend if you like the Bedwyn series, Mary Balogh, and/or historical romance.

    This is a fun book. The H/h are both likable and the story is fun. The book kept me engaged the entire time. It is a good addition to the series but is also a good stand alone book.

    Story
    "Horrible Heroine"
    If you could sum up Slightly Scandalous in three words, what would they be?

    Hero bests Heroine


    Would you be willing to try another book from Mary Balogh? Why or why not?

    Yes, because I read/heard otherbooks first.


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

    All auditory books bring a "voice" to the book which has the ability to to either enhance or detract from the text. Ms. Landor is a very good narrator who doesn't overdue male voices which makes them more believable. In other words ,there is no distraction due to a super fake male voice from a female narrator.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. The physical violence of the heroine was disconcerting. I am familar with female tempers: curse, rant and rave, break something. However punching multiple people in the nose is too, too much.


    Any additional comments?

    Mismatch in the intensity of the Hero vs the heroine.
