Slightly Dangerous (Bedwyn Saga Series #6) by Mary Balogh

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Mary Balogh's The Secret Mistress.

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.

With her trademark wit, riveting storytelling, and sizzling sexual sparks, Mary Balogh once again brings together two polar opposites: an irresistible, high-and-mighty aristocrat and the impulsive, pleasure-loving woman who shows him what true passion is all about. A man and a woman so wrong for each other, it can result only in the perfect match.

Loved it! Loved it! Loved it! Sometimes, you can get yourself in trouble by anticipating a book too much. While reading the Bedwyn family series, I was constantly intrigued by the Duke of Bewcastle. I also had read that this was the best book of the series. However, I wanted to read the series in order and so waited to read this book last. Fortunately, my expectations of this book were not let down. I loved it. The Duke is a closed off man. He does not let anyone in including his family. When he meets Christine Derrick, she is very different from him and he is fascinated with her. Christine Derrick, a widow, has decided to put her past life of society behind her and lead a simple life. She has been hurt in the past and is not looking for love. When she meets the Duke, she continuelly embarasses herself in front of him. The chemistry of these two is evident from the beginning. It is a classic case of opposites attracting. Christine helps to bring the Duke's softer side out and he helps her to see her worth. I really liked their romance. I liked the humorous scenes. I liked touching bases with the other brothers and sisters from previous books. The book has been critized for being another 'Pride and Prejudice'. Yeah, it is. But who cares. It was still great and I found myself smiling while reading Christine and the Duke's story. That is exactly how I like to feel while reading a good romance - Happy!

Having read all the books before it in this series it was a perfect culmination. I hated to see the series end as all the books were good, this one in my opinion was the best. I will very likely read the whole series once more even though I have already read this one again.

My favorite of the series all of which I loved. Mary Balogh is a sensitive romantic writer and she never disappoints me. Read the series in order to better enjoy Wulfric's story. I am hooked on the family series so many romance novelists are writing now. Mary Balogh's series are the best. It's fun to see how all the characters we meet in abook live their own stories.

A worth-while read. In MBs attempt to balance out two polar opposites, she not only even dares to merge these two people, but allows their personalities to stay perfectly intact. I thought Wulfric and Christines reluctance to change anything about them selves and try to make an already strained relationship work, was the master-piece for this book. Very interesting to read a love story where no one has to yeild or give into the other, a novelty indeed. Diversity, with two equally valid explanations to be as they are.

Slightly Dangerous by Mary Balogh is a fantastic historical romance. Ms Balogh has delivered a well-written book furnished with amazing, lovable characters. Wulfric and Christine's story is loaded with drama, sizzle and humor. I totally loved this book and look forward to reading more from Mary Balogh in the future. Slightly Dangerous is book 6 in the Bedwyn Saga but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I read a print copy of this book.

This is my favorite Historical Romance novel of all times. Wulfric and Christine are perfect for each other. I have this book in paperback as well as on my nook. I have read this book easily 10 times, and I am not one to re-read books.

My favorite of the Bedwyn books. Wonderful ending to the series. You should definitely read the series in order. Wulfric was always enigmatic, fun to see the real man underneath.

Love love Mary Balogh's work and this is one of her best. If you want insightful story with characters you would love to have as friends this is the story for you. It is the last in a series and I would suggest that you start at the beginning of the series as all the books are marvelous.

As usual, Ms. Balogh makes romance fun and titillating. Having read many of her books, I have yet to tire of her fun characters, humor, and sex appeal of the main characters. You can relate to the heroines and want the heroes! Have fun!

This is my favorite in the Bedwyn series. Since I read them in order, this one was the last one I read. I don't think that being the freshest in my mind was the deciding factor; it's simply a really good story.
