    3 1/2 starsAs the last installment in the Slightly series, this was probably the most anticipated read of my recent reading history. To be fair, I didn't love all the previous books in the series, but I was more than ready to love this one. Why? Because it was about Wulf *sighs*As the story opens, Wulfric Bedwyn, the Duke of Bewcastle, is feeling somewhat morose and too old at thirty-five. His siblings are all happily married, procreating and living away in their own residences, his long-time mi [...]

    BEST OF THE SERIES and of Mary Balogh; a perfect ending for all of us Bedwyn family fansSlightly Dangerous is the sixth and final book in Mary Balogh's Bedwyn family series and takes place two to two and a half years (it spreads out over several months) after Rachel and Alleyne's wedding in Slightly Sinful. It is absolute perfection and reading it will make you giddy - and in several locations laugh out loud. I think it's the **best** of the series, which is saying something since IMO often the [...]

    V. PARENTAL GUIDANCE ALERT:A Court of Wings and Ruin is NEW ADULT/EROTICA but Goodreads editors won't tell you says:

    3.5 ishOW and OM warnings (view spoiler)[ H had a mistress for 10 years and he went into a dark placed when she died. Heroine had a previous marriage and she was supposdely deeply in love with her husband(hide spoiler)]I needed a little bit of classic/historical romance and I'm glad I found this one. I like the hero well enough, he wasn't a manwhore and I love his tortured nature. My only problem is that I always prefer when the first and most important woman in H's life is the heroine. He had a [...]

    13 January 2015I have a Facebook page which I use primarily to follow my favorite authors. Yesterday, however, I posted this photo on Mary Balogh's page and mentioned that it reminded me of Wulfric and Christine.Almost immediately, Mary Balogh her own self responded, "Yes, indeed. I believe it was created for them." Don't you get a little thrill when authors you admire "speak" directly to you? Then I noticed the stats: activity on my page is up 78,500% in 18 hours. I don't really care about stat [...]

    Really enjoyed this one. This is the first book by Mary Balogh that I've read and I found it to be wonderful.So let's talk about the Richard Armitage, shall we?As soon as I read the description of the Duke, I pictured Richard Armitage. Granted, I might have enjoyed this book so much because of the resultant mental imagery. However, I suspect I actually liked it because of the stellar writing, wonderful dialogue, and the interesting characters.

    A beautifully done, sweet and heartwarming romance.As much as I started adoring the vivacious and irrepressible h, it’s the H who steals the show. A better replication of Mr. Darcy I’ve yet to read! He’s cold, aloof, unsmiling and as ‘toplofty’ as they come. His eyes, she noticed, were like two chips of ice. Their normal charming selves, in fact. But for all his ‘quizzing glass put-downs’ of her, he falls for the sunny and charming h in his typically silent but profound way. And th [...]

    Some books are hard to review. Do I love it? Do I not? Series: The final nail in the coffin, as it were.Sexy times: Yes. Tame stuff. Clinical at times as GR Ursula pointed out. Plan on reading more by the author:I do. Synopsis: This is a long tale. It felt longer than the other books in the series. Perhaps that was just me?Christine catches the eye of the oh so proper and restrained Wulf, the head of his clan and a very proper Duke. She's nothing like he'd imagine himself being attracted to and [...]

    Of course it's five stars! This review first appeared at Romantic Historical Reviews.Slightly Dangerous was released in 2004, as the culmination of Mary Balogh's Bedwyn Saga series, which follows the lives of Wulfric Bedwyn, Duke of Bewcastle, and his five siblings. It has gone on to become her most popular book, with a 4.6/5 rating on and 4.2/5 on , and is firmly placed among the top ten in All About Romance's Top 100 Poll. I have read almost everything published by Mary Balogh, and this one i [...]

    Not really a review. This was just recommended to me and since I've read and re-read this book (and the entire series) many times, I thought I should add my voice to the "Slightly" love. For once, the last book in a series does not disappoint. We've had glimpses of the softer Wulfric throughout the series as he deals with his brothers and sisters's romances and life dramas. He appears to be a hard, cold man. A stickler for duty. The due north to everyone's moral compass. And he is - most of the [...]

    That's it. FavoriteMary Balogh book, no question. It was just too much fun. I'm fairly picky when it comes to myPride and Prejudice adaptations, so I worried going into this one. But it was so utterly delightful from page one that any apprehensions I had were immediately swept away under the force of Christine and Wulf's wonderful, at times hilarious, story. I laughed so many times. And I love that Ms. Balogh turned it into a second chance at romance tale for each of her protagonists. Not a seco [...]

    And then there was Wulf. First off, I enjoyed how the story progressed and that it took place a few years after the previous book. Wulf's had time to stew alone without any of his siblings around. It is a little reminiscent of Pride & Prejudice; I knew this going in and was hoping Balogh would be able to pull it off. She did. There was plenty of sparks with these two and it was a blast to read. I had no problem with the first half but I wanted to focus more on the second half where Wulf was [...]

    I'm so happy, I don't know what to say. I know I missed so much background!Wulf by skipping from Book 1 to this one, but I'm going back to read those, and I'm going to love all of the glimpses I have of him, I love him SO much. There have been so many books I've read about men who "do not get angry", and then they start caring enough to show it, but those men's anger always makes them unlikable and douchey, and I always think "oh, I guess I should appreciate that I'm seeing that they're not tran [...]

    Expectations have been my enemy so far, in this series. My favorites were the ones I had the lowest expectations for. No longer. I expected this one to be good, hoped it would be, and it exceeded those expectations.You know going in (because you've read the rest of the series, right? Right?!?) that Wulfric is going to be a tough nut to crack. His defenses are so far up he might as well be all wall. We've seen his love for his siblings, so we know he's worth it, but it's going to take some doing [...]

    Second time reading: so I have been on a rereading binge, and have read the entire Bedwyn Saga in the previous week. Some I loved again, one I skipped (Aleyne's book: I dislike books centered on memory loss) and one I was very anxious about: would I still love Wulfric's story best?Thankfully I did and absolutely adored Wulfric's story again. It will cost me a half day at work, because it was impossible to pit down and save for tomorrow-evening, the first free time I would have again. Don't know [...]

    5 estrellitas y creo que bien merecidas.Me alegro de haber empezado esta serie y me alegro todavía más de que la historia de Wulfric sea la última, ya que la autora ha sabido aprovechar muy bien esas pinceladas que nos daba en cada libro de su persona para finalmente abrirnos las puertas de uno de los personajes más complejos que he leído en romántica en mucho tiempo.Durante este libro hemos podido comprobar de primera mano por qué Wulfric Bedwyn, es como es; frío, aparentemente insensib [...]

    I loved this story so much, that I'm giving five stars to an historical romance and I couldn't care less!Honestly you guys, I don't remember the last time a story has kept me from falling asleep. I've been sleeping so much lately, that one of these days, I'll wake up and find that I've grown roots and thorns just to be on the safe side. That, or I'll be turned into a catThis, OH GOD, I don't know if it was the undertones of Pride and Prejudice (it helped), but I fell in love with these two chara [...]

    This was but my second foray into Mary Balogh territory- I know, right? Hated the first one I read (A Rogue's Downfall but this one was: wow!I have to say that I did enjoy listening to Rosalyn Landor's audio version of the book (Thank you, Caz, from AudioGals - I know you love her!) after I got used to the very haughty tones of the hero. They had to be haughty, but he came across as incredibly stiff, pompous and even old. It took me quite a while to warm to him.So the first half I was like hatin [...]

    It's all in the execution. If someone had recounted the plot of this book to me - stern, unsmiling duke falls in spite of himself for life-loving widow who constantly gets into scrapes and is unimpressed by his dukely ways - I would have thought, "Yeah, I've read this story a dozen times. Spare me the hoydenish heroine and her joie de vivre," and gone to look for a book with some meaty angst.But the characters are so beautifully drawn, their conversations so interesting, the growth of their love [...]

    I am rereading this one. I just love it the very Mr. Darcyish hero who tries hard to keep his Duke face and not fall for the woman who is his exact opposite. I love that he fights and fights for her all the while fighting his own instincts not to do so. That her preconceived notions finally break away. Glad I got caught up again! Wonderful!

    Sweet & fun historical romance. It did remind me a lot of Pride & Prejudice. Christine is a fun loving, poor, widowed daughter of a schoolmaster. Wulfric is a haughty, arrogant, cold & disdainful duke. They don't like each other at all, yet seem to like spending time together. See, very Pride & Prejudice-esque. The story is slow moving, not necessarily a bad thing, just slow.

    As far as I am concerned, Slightly Dangerous ends at the 45% mark because that's when Wulfrick's (and mine) heart break.Wulfrick is very similar to Anthony from The Viscount Who Loved Me and Marcus from It Happened One Autumn in terms of his personality: he is snobbish, appears to be cold-hearted and indifferent, and takes his title very seriously. However, he is also very responsible, looks after his siblings and bravely holds the burden of his aristocratic title and all the responsibilities th [...]

    4/5; 4 stars; A-Read by Rosalyn Landor, one of my favorite narrators of historical romance. I really enjoyed listening to this story because I caught a lot of nuances I missed in the print version. I remember when I read this I had a fairly negative reaction to Wulfric. However, this time, when I listened to the story, it was a lot more clear that his feelings for Christine were engaged almost from the beginning. His humanity and decency came across more clearly too. I really enjoyed seeing all [...]

    First, let me confess that I have not read other book in this series, which many folks seem to love. However, based upon the way it is written, I'm able to write a fair review on this one book.Honestly, I did not like Christine, the heroine. I did like Wulfric, with his Mr. Darcy type characteristics. But it's difficult to appreciate a romance novel when one does not buy into the couple, as a whole. It seems as though Balogh is trying to convince the reader that opposites do,indeed, attract. Chr [...]

    Just wonderful!It was a great reading. There is a very wise and very simple plot. It's progress and development is well paced. Slowly building romance adn love between h/H prepare the reader very sensual love-making scene which is one of the best sex scenes I've read in romance books. And when they accepted to being together, you didn't have to tolerate some nonsense things just the sake of romances.I loved a cool, distance duke started to feel attraction for a woman who normally he would ignore [...]

    Simply wonderful! I recently re-read this wonderful story, and I loved it all over again. Starting when Wulfric Bedwyn, cold as ice and self-contained Duke of Bewcastle, accepts an invitation to a house party simply because he is lonely,Slightly Dangerous charmed me. Wulf falls completely, and in spite of himself, for a woman he would normally avoid. A life-loving woman that is always having fun and getting into scrapes, Christine is totally unimpressed with the duke and his quizzing glass.I lov [...]

    October 2015I finished my re-read of this story today and discovered again how much I love this story. Wulfric and Christine are a wonderful couple and the way they develop together is just gorgeous.This is everything a historical romance should be and even more! A delicious read which I can't get enough of. If only there were more such books

    I believe you were put on this earth to bring light to your fellow mortals Mrs. Derrick.Would she ever forget his saying those words? Such strange words. They made her want to weep.He made her want to weep, nasty, horrid man.Yes, finally we have Wulf's book. The whole Bedwyn saga I feel was leading up to this. Every single book, we got such exciting swaths and reveals of Wulf's character, from him saving the children in Aidan's book, bailing out Judith, crying in Morgan's book in secret when he [...]

    Wow, so, this book!!!! If I could give it more than five stars, I would. Also, it's only mid-February and already I think I've found my favorite book I read in 2014 because this was SO GOOD that it'll be hard for anything to top this. Everything about this book was absolutely beautiful to me. Starting from super awkward turtle Wulf who was lonely and accepted the house party invitation, and then continued to be awkward for most of the book, and so much of the first two thirds was absolutely amaz [...]

    ADOREI Adorei e adorei Só sei que lhe peguei às 16:30 e não consegui dormir sem saber como acabava e isso foi às 4:30 ^_^Wulf, o homem que é mais do que aparenta, o homem que se interessa por tudo o que não lhe convém e que nem devia olha segunda vez O homem que correu atrás do que queria, que lutou, o homem que tinha uma grande capacidade para amar mas que não lhe ensinaram como, o homem que não deixa de ser quem é mas que se torna algo mais!!! Simplesmente no meio de todo o gelo, de [...]
