Publisher's Summary

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.

Contains mature themes.

What the Critics Say

"With this series, Balogh has created a wonderfully romantic world of Regency culture and society. Readers will miss the honorable Bedwyns and their mates; ending the series with Wulfric's story is icing on the cake. Highly recommended." (Library Journal)

    I was given this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
    A good run of the mill romance that's interesting enough with its variables to keep the readers interest . Worth s read/listen if this is your genre .

    "A good ending to the series"

    This is one of Mary Balogh, better books, it was not weigh down with loads of sex exploits. The story was well though out and compassionate to the two main Characters. In all I have enjoyed the series, it is good to read them in order, but they can be read independently.

    "Fantastic Finish!"

    This was an awesome conclusion to the Bedwyn Saga. This was story about the Duke of Bedcastle the last Bedwyn sibling to fall in love. This was one of my favorites in this series. This listen was well worth the credit with a five star review.

    "Ten Stars!"

    I have read this book several times but rushed to buy it at in audio format. Rosalyn Landor is perfect for Mary Balogh's writing. I will listen to this many times!

    Story
    "Delightfully damaged characters ending a series"

    Wulfric's story is the one we all waited for. I took back one star for our heroine's protesting beyond the point of sense (no spoiler, I won't say what she's refusing to do). But loved that she leaps before she looks, spills, rips, tears, falls, and generally isn't your usual heroine at all. Definitely a girl I could relate to.

    Finally, finally we get an explanation of Wulfric's frozen demeanor and ducal behavior even to his family. He goes from iceberg to...well, making sense at last while staying true to character. Plus some real surprises that are also true to character. Love it when a hero can go from scary frigid to sympathetic in the course of a book.

    I'm being a bit vague, but I don't want to spoil it for others. The narrator is awesome and I totally lost myself in the story without ever noticing the narrator once things began, which to me is the mark of greatness. Kudos!

    If there was a way to give partial stars, this would honestly be a 4 3/4 as I suspect the author could have kept the conflict cranked without resorting that one last time too many. Regardless, I bought this the minute I could and you won't be sorry if you do.

    Story
    "The Unforgettable Bedwyns"

    The only sad thought of these books are that there are no more siblings to write about. Their personalities are so great, humorous, strong willed, strong tempered and just plain fun. I hope Mary Balogh will continue with their off spring and create more stories of romance. Aunts and uncles could be in the mix of fostering or impeding their nieces and nephews romances.
    The narrator Rosalyn Landor is the best narrator of all the narrators that I have heard. She is incredible with the ease of how she differentiates characters voices. I sometimes see her name as narrator and choose that book because I love her narration.

    "Perfect!"

    Enjoyed this story so much. Loved the characters, and the narration. Usually read suspense or history and found this to be just the best change of pace for me. Mature theme, but found it perfect for a mature person. A must read for romance lovers.

    Story
    "Best in the series"
    Where does Slightly Dangerous rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It fills in the background of personality issues of rhe Duke and his New Dutchess.<br/>The aristocracy of these times were extremely judgemental and controlling of their ranks. But for the modern reader this family was starting to break those rules.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The humanity was very sweet.

    Story
    "The things we do for love"

    The duke was never the man heroine wanted and by insisting she needs someone with certain criteria he was forced to become someone she admired. The heroine was adorable and at the same time her character was unrealistic. To refuse a duke so many times when she was so in love was not something I can see as realistic. The story reminded me somewhat of Pride and Prejudice. Except that she was not silly in her request in that book. I really like Mary Balogh but her repetitive nature in her books is tiresome. At points in this story I just want to say move on. I get it. Her marriage before was not good and he was jealous. Now can we get to another point???! If all the repetitive point are removed and the reasoning for her refusal got a bit more realistic then the story was actually very entertaining. My apologies to MB and her admirers for any insult but these reviews are not for popularity contests and I need to be true to my followers.

    If you could sum up Slightly Dangerous in three words, what would they be?

    I read this whole Bedwyn series years ago but have read Slightly Dangerous numerous times since and now look forward to enjoying this story at my leisure.........reclining with my eyes closed and a slight smile on my face.
