Publisher's Summary

Young. Ravishing. Exquisitely marriageable. From the moment he spies Lady Morgan Bedwyn across the glittering ballroom, Gervase Ashford, Earl of Rosthorn, knows he has found the perfect instrument of his revenge. But wedlock is not on the mind of the continent's most notorious rake. Nor is it of interest to the fiercely independent Lady Morgan herself...until one night of shocking intimacy erupts in a scandal that could make Gervase's vengeance all the sweeter. There is only one thing standing in his way: Morgan, who has achieved the impossible - she's melted his coolly guarded heart. For Gervase, only the marriage bed will do, but Morgan simply will not have him. Thus begins a sizzling courtship where two wary hearts are about to be undone by the most scandalous passion of all: glorious, all-consuming love. Contains mature themes.

    "Another good story!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would recommend any Mary Balogh book as I have never read or listened to one I haven't thoroughly enjoyed so far.


    Any additional comments?

    I was so excited to listen to the next in this series and it was very much worth the wait. I have been following this family through each finding their true love and have enjoyed each one. I am giving this 4 stars because some of the actions on both main character parts seemed out of place at times and not what their personalities, according to their descriptions, would do or react to. I did love listening to it though and feel 4 stars carries an "I loved it" sense but not over the top LOVED it, as I did with the previous stories in this series. Still, I recommend it and will listen to this series again.

    Story
    "Balogh's Best Bedwyn Book!"
    Where does Slightly Tempted rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of my favorites for the Historical Romance genre.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lady Morgan. Her growth and development as a character comes about nicely over the course of the book without her ever losing her likability or the quintessential elements that make up her character.


    What about Rosalyn Landor’s performance did you like?

    She did a superb job with accents and character differentiation as well as portraying just the right amount of emotion at just the right times.


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

    Absolutely.


    Any additional comments?

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I liked the multi-faceted nature of the main characters so that neither was too pristine or too roguish at any particular point. There were nuances throughout the book that added to the characterization of the main characters, which made them more appealing and captivating (e.g., Gervase's dedicated use of his nickname for Morgan). I also really took enjoyment in the way Morgan dealt with Gervase's revenge, and this made the romance between them more sizzling and sinful. Mary Balogh wove in the minor characters, including other Bedwyns, just right without detracting from the main characters' storyline. Definitely recommend this book for someone looking for a historical romance.

    "STORY A BIT WEAK"

    I just couldn't get into the relationship between the two protagonists. She was too young for him and I didn't care for his personality. The story was a weak and not up to Balough's usual fine fare. Of course, the narrator was wonderful as usual.

    Story
    "Youngest Bedwyn Girl"

    I've enjoyed the Bedwyn family series. This story is about the youngest girl, Lady Morgan.

    Lady Morgan Bedwyn has come to Brussels with her best friend and her family to see their son/brother off to war against the escaped Bony. Gervase meets Lady Bedwyn at a Celebration Ball to give the military a big send off. Upon learning who she is Gervase develops a plan to use her to spite her brother, Boecastle (sp), the Duke. Unjustly accused of wrongdoing and banished from England 9 years ago by his father, Gervase Ashford, Earl of Rosthorn sees a means to avenge himself against his accuser.

    The next few days brings about changes as the war rages and strands them in Brussels.

    Rosalyn Landor gives an excellent performance.

    Well worth a credit.
