Book Description

5 Mar 2004
Meet the Bedwyns—six brothers and sisters—men and women of passion and privilege, daring and sensuality.

Enter their dazzling world of high society and breathtaking seduction…where each will seek love, fight temptation, and court scandal…and where Morgan Bedwyn, the willful youngest daughter, discovers that true love is a temptation no woman can—or should—resist.

Young. Ravishing. Exquisitely marriageable. From the moment he spies Lady Morgan Bedwyn across the glittering ballroom, Gervase Ashford, Earl of Rosthorn, knows he has found the perfect instrument of his revenge. But wedlock is not on the mind of the continent’s most notorious rake. Nor is it of interest to the fiercely independent Lady Morgan herself…until one night of shocking intimacy erupts in a scandal that could make Gervase’s vengeance all the sweeter. There is only one thing standing in his way: Morgan, who has achieved the impossible—she’s melted his coolly guarded heart. For Gervase, only the marriage bed will do, but Morgan simply will not have him. Thus begins a sizzling courtship where two wary hearts are about to be undone by the most scandalous passion of all: glorious, all-consuming love.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the Slightly series to date 12 Jan 2004
By Mrs. M.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent Bedwyn family Regency 2 Mar 2007
By Helen Hancox TOP 500 REVIEWER
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Give into Temptation for this one 28 Mar 2013
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars super 20 May 2011
By Tasneem
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I adore Balogh and this story is totally in her style. Morgan is such a wonderful heroine, smart, vivacious and captivating and Gervase embodies the best of what I think encapsulates the delectable rakish gentleman. A really wonderful story filled with love, life and laughter. A must read, especially if you want to understand the Bedwyns.
