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.

Just wonderful.

Best one in the series. Freyja is a great character and Josh is the perfect foil to her. So lovely to see characters with actual personalities. A wonderful story full of wit and charm and devastatingly romantic. Highly recommend.

My favorite out of the series.

This book was so lively. I enjoyed the characters so much especially firecracker free. I can't wait to see what's in store for Morgan.

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.

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.

Another Great Story and Narration

I am thoroughly enjoying this whole series. I had been looking forward to Freyja’s story and this did not disappoint. It was going to take someone special to entice her to marriage. She’s headstrong and aristocratic and not beautiful. She enjoys her freedom even if she’s lonely at times. She meets Josh in a completely unexpected way and let’s just say she doesn’t appreciate him. She, of course, has no idea he’s a marquis and very wealthy. He’s also handsome, charming and an all around good person. There’s many layers to this story, as in a lot that goes on and I found that it delivered all the “feels” a good romance should. It also has an unexpected villain that was simply horrible. As always, Rosalyn Landor, excelled at her narration and as always earned 5 stars from me. Highly recommend this to adult historical romance readers. This series is not to be missed!

Meh

Much telling and not much showing. Characters are shallow, motivations are silly, and plots are predictable. Since that is the case, the book should be much shorter. Lots of words, no action. But we eat boxed mac and cheese because it fills you up when there's no pasta primavera around.
Naration is excellent.

Kept falling asleep

Struggled to finish, this. Unfortunately I started the series and the one character who intreges me is wolf which I find is last one.
