Format: Mass Market Paperback
This a wonderful book, featuring Lady Morgan Bedwyn. She is singled out by Lord Rosthorn in Brussels because he wants revenge on her brother, the Duke of Bewcastle, then they are caught up in the aftermath of Waterloo together (beautifully described). Alleyne Bedwyn is missing presumed dead (although we are given a hint as to what happens to him, so we know he will come back for the next 'Slightly' book due out soon, but back in England we get to see the Bedwyns trying to come to terms with his death as well as catching a glimpse into Bewcastle's past and the antipathy between him and Rosthorn. Of course it all unravels towards a happy ending, but there are some interesting twists.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Helen Hancox TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 2 Mar 2007
Format: Paperback
Mary Balogh's "Slightly" series have been variable in quality. I was rather disappointed with "Slightly Married" (Aidan), "Slightly Wicked" (Rannulf) and "Slightly Sinful" (Alleyne) but thought that "Slightly Scandalous" (Freyja) and "Slightly Dangerous" (Wulfric) were excellent. "Slightly Tempted" is the last of the Bedwyn series that I have read, although chronologically it's book 4 of the 6 (although "Sinful", Alleyne's story, occurs at the same time), and it was a really good read.

"Slightly Tempted" is the story of the youngest of the Bedwyns, daughter Morgan, who is 18 and in her first season. The events take place around the battle of Waterloo and Morgan is in Brussels with her brother Alleyne and a family who are looking after her. She meets Gervase Ashford, Earl of Rosthorne, at a ball and enjoys her conversation with him. Rosthorne's personality seems rather similar to that of Joshua, Marquess of Hallmere in "Slightly Scandalous" - he's fun, witty, a rake (of course!) and yet there are deeper things going on in his character. He was banished from England 9 years before after apparently ravishing a lady neighbour who was about to be betrothed to Wulfric, Duke of Bewcastle and Morgan's brother. Rosthorne feels distinctly uncharitable towards Wulfric and when he discovers Wulfric's sister is in Brussels he resolves to get some revenge on her brother by leading her into some indiscretions.

Of course his plan goes a little awry when he discovers there is more to Morgan than just being a lightweight debutante - they spend a lot of time together and his motives in spending time with her change significantly. However, when returning to England and the talk of society Morgan discovers his past and believes that all his behaviour was designed to hurt her brother Wulfric.

Mary Balogh. Brilliant! "Slightly Tempted" was one of my favourites. Lady Morgan Bedwyn at 18 years old thinks she is able to deal with rakes. The Earl of Rosthorn has an unknown agenda 'Vengeance'. Banished for 9 years, restored only when he inherits his title, he has a score to settle and Morgan is an unwitting tool. Meeting in Brussels before the Battle of Waterloo and thence to England the action continues between the couple, bringing in various other interesting characters. I loved it, and will leave you to discover how the problems are resolved Which, of course, they must be as this is a romance.

Review taken from my Blog Post (#61) in December 2010:

A 3.5 Star read when I originally read it at the local library, but decided that it was probably worth an upgrade to a 4.

Whilst I enjoyed it, and it was good to get Morgan's side of the whole Bedwyn Series, it was a little slow going at the beginning, with a gentle curve towards a satisfactory ending. Probably best to read this before you read Slightly Sinful (Blog Post #60) ..... I suspect it might have been better that way around!
