In the "Slightly" series, Mary Balogh has been building up to this novel: Wulfric Bedwyn, the eldest of the Bedwyn bevy, has been shown to us as a mysterious and unexplicable character - cold, totally withdrawn and inapproachable, and yet always the most important person outside the two main figures to clinch the matter between them, the pattern-card aristocrat and still always the one to accept his siblings' romances with people of definitely lower class and to help them to a happy conclusion. There is a lot of love between the younger siblings and Wulfric, even if it is not shown in a conventional way. Between Aidan (the next in age after Wulfric) and him there is strain, even a kind of aggression from Aidan's side, and yet Aidan can count on his brother in a tight corner, and I am sure Aidan knows this as well as we do. Real-life people are exactly this complex, and this is why I'm sure every reader of the "Slightly" books has been agog to find out more about Wulfric.

Wulfric's facade has mostly been so strong and without cracks that it has been difficult for me to imagine him in a relationship with a woman. Is his outfit always as perfect? Does he use his quizzing-glass in bed? This has made me even more curious. And now we have a whole book about him, telling us about his feelings that he has kept hidden, revealing to us why he has become the perfect aristocrat without cracks in his facade, having him find a person who can see the Wulfric Bedwyn inside the mantle of the Duke of Bedwyn. It is totally fascinating, as if I had had a film of household plastic before my eyes, and now it is gone and I can see this Wulfric Bedwyn for the first time.

Format: Paperback
The first time I read "Slightly Dangerous" I was a little disappointed. I decided not to keep the book and put it up for sale. When someone ordered it I quickly read it again before dispatching it, deciding then that I enjoyed it rather more. And since it's gone I've read four more of the "Slightly" series and I now rather regret having sold it. Anyway, I got a copy from the library and read it - for the third time - and this time I loved it.

Why? Well of course it's the final book in the series following the Bedwyn family in the "Slightly" series. Wulfric, Duke of Bewcastle, has featured in all the others as a cold, aloof and toplofty chap with silver eyes. We haven't really learned a great deal about him except that he was crossed in love when young and has kept himself away from women, apart from his mistress, since then.

"Slightly Dangerous" starts after Wulfric's mistress has died and he's very much on his own now that all his siblings have married and set up home elsewhere. He ends up agreeing to attend a House Party with a friend which he expects is going to be a gathering of gentlemen who can enjoy conversation and relaxation. When he gets there he discovers there are a large number of younger guests, young girls on the catch for a duke as a husband, and one slightly older widow, Mrs Derrick, who rubs him up the wrong way from the start.

Christine Derrick feels very out of place at the house party, having been invited as she is a friend of the hostess and the numbers needed to be evened out when the Duke of Bewcastle accepted the invitation. She has been a widow for two years and the last years of her marriage were rather difficult; her late husband's closest relatives are at the house party and they treat Christine badly.
