Book Description

8 Mar 2007 Bedwyn Series (Book 3)
Colonel Lord Aidan Bedwyn has come to Ringwood Manor to keep his promise to a dying fellow officer. He has sworn to protect the man's sister no matter what - even when he finds that Miss Eve Morris wants no part of his protection. Finally, Aidan makes Eve an offer she cannot refuse. It is intended to be a simple, straightforward business arrangement - but they have reckoned without their own unwilling attraction to each other. And soon they begin to wonder if perhaps it will someday be possible to be more that just slightly married

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful 7 Feb 2007
Format:Paperback
I have fallen in love with Mary Balogh's novels. I want to red everything she has written. Slightly Married is the first book in a series of six about the four Bedwyn brothers and their two sisters, set in early nineteenth century England. What is so wonderful about Mary Balogh's writing is that she creates marvellous characters who mature and develop as you read. They start off naive and immature and unknowing about relationships - as was frequently the case in Regency England - and by the end of the novel they have learned so much about themselves and the people in their lives.

I loved the Slightly series which will appeal to all those who love Georgette Heyer romances. Mary Balogh is completely addictive. I stayed up late each night I read a new book and found them unputodwneable. I can't praise more highly than that.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Pleasant But Predictable Romance 28 Feb 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
On a battlefield in Toulouse, France, 1814, Colonel Lord Aidan Bedwyn gives his word of honor to one of his dying soldiers that he will "protect the man's sister - no matter what!" The English had prevailed over Napoleon's army and Colonel Bedwyn, home on leave in England to visit his large family, stops at Ringwood Manor in Oxfordshire to personally break the sad news to the man's sister, Eve Morris. Determined to discover the problem that caused the vehement promise to be exacted, Bedwyn discovers that Miss Morris and all her dependents are to be evicted from their home and reduced to penury unless she marries within the next four days. Her father had bequeathed the manor and land to her for the period of one year. If she had not married in that time, the estate would go to her brother. If he were to die, then a social climbing, grasping cousin was to inherit. Bedwyn, a man of his word, proposes a marriage of convenience to allow the lady to live out her life on her estates. As Bedwyn had never planned to marry, he would, of course, return to the army and the couple would never meet again. As fate would have it, the marriage turns out to be anything but convenient and their time together is prolonged with interesting consequences.
This is the first of a three book series about the Bedwyn family - Wulfric, Duke of Bewcastle, his brothers Aiden, Rannulf, and Alleyne and sisters Freyja and Morgan. This novel about Aiden and Eve makes for a pleasant romantic read. There is nothing complex about the tale, no subplots or much tension between the characters, who are charming if predictable. Ms. Balogh writes in her usual warm, emotional style which enhances the somewhat over-used storyline. I enjoyed reading "Slightly Married" and do recommend it as long as potential buyers/readers realize that this is not one of Mary Balogh's best efforts.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best of the 'Slightly' series 26 Jun 2007
By CJ VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
My favourite book in the series about the Bedwyn family (apart from perhaps the last one). Mary Balogh writes beautifully, she does character development very well and can put the most unlikely couple together at the beginning of a story and end up with them so obviously being made for each other with the transition always fascinating, moving and totally believable. Aidan is (apart from Wulfric) the darkest and most complex of the brothers and the gradual realisation of his love for Eve is beautifully told.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slightly Different 26 Feb 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I enjoyed this book and thought that the main characters were a little bit different to the normal hero and heroine, as was the tone of the book. Its honesty was refreshing- the way in which Aidan and Eve fell in love was described in a more realistic way that the standard 'sparks flying' story. I thought both Aidan and Eve's characters were likeable, if hers was a little cliched at times, but on the whole a really enjoyable book, I reccomend it to all Bedwyn fans!

3.0 out of 5 stars Really a 3.5 rating 31 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback
Review taken from Blog Post (#69) in January 2011, after borrowing from local library.

Colonel Lord Aidan Bedwyn's life was saved to years previously by a young officer, but Percy Morris has never intended to call in that particular debt.

However, having taken a dreadful hit during another battle, Aidan found him just before he lost his fight to survive. Percy called in the debt, and asked him to take the news to his sister personally, that she should not mourn him, or wear black .... and more importantly he made Colonel Lord Aidan promise to protect her no matter what, he was quite definite about that ..... NO MATTER WHAT.

Therefore a few months later when Aidan returned home to England's green and pleasant lands on leave he travelled first to Ringwood Manor to carry out Percy's last wish.

Once there he finds that Eve Morris wants not part of his protection. Eventually he comes to realise that Percy's no matter what meant, when he discovers that she will be left destitute - along with all the various lame ducks by way of children, ex convicts, village idiots and injured ex-solders she has given homes to.

Aidan offers her a straightforward business arrangement - a marriage of convenience .... she will have the protection of his name, and he will go back to his duties as an cavalry commander. They have, however, failed to recognise that there is an ever growing, and unwilling attraction between them.

Will they ever be more than just slightly married in this poignant tale of two socially diverse people.

It was nice to see that Eve made a tiny chip in the ice exterior of Wulfric, Duke of Bewcastle along they way. A 3.5**** star read, but read it you must to piece together the whole of the mighty Bedwyn dynasty.
