I loved this book , The story and characters were will be reading it again at some point . Wulfric was remote , sexy and fathomless, Christine ,was fun loving , provocative and carefree and definitely his other half . But as fun loving as she seemed she had experienced hurt and betrayal . As the story develops wulfric is drawn ever more to Christine but he never loses that intriguing remoteness that seems to go hand in hand with his position in society and his character . I found the story delicious can't wait to read my next bedwyn book. Jo grigsby

this is the last in a family series and just as delightful as all the other books. it is about wulfric, the ducal head of the family, who finds himself lonely once all his siblings are happily married. he meets someone he is attracted to but finds her annoying and unsuitable at the same time [so did l for a bit] mary balogh tackles the development of relationships beautifully and this book is one of her best. heartwarming and funny at the same time. how l wish l could get the rest of this series on amazon kindle!

Although I did enjoy the book, I found the coldness of the mais character a bit unrealistic. The heroine amused me, but the Duke was just too stuffy to get over himself.

I am a fan of Mary Balogh. I love her Signet books in particular. Although her recent Bedwyn series didn't do anything for me, I still want to support Ms Balogh and hoping this one will capture my imagination. I am not going into the detail of the story since it has been written about extensively in other reviews, but the way the story has been told left me a bit cold. I suppose it was written in the "back to basic" tradition of Jane Austin, it was well written but it just felt uninspiring and had a been-there-done-that feel to it. It didn't help that I found Christine was a bit ordinary and Wulfric was too stiff. The lack of warm in their relationship made the love affair Christine and Wulfric didn't feel convincing. Having said that, a so-so book by Ms Balogh is miles better than many others out there. All in all, I found this well-written book "Slightly Boring".

Borrowed this from the local lending library, but thought I would share my thoughts on it. See my original blog post #51 and the re-read blog post of #156 in August 2011.

Interesting, intriguing, ringing with humour and pure delight for the last in the "slightly ....." saga.

Christine Derrick, a Widow and estranged from most of her husband's family because of difficulties in her marriage before her husband died is as and poor as a church mouse.

Whilst Wulfric, Duke of Bewcastle is cold as ice, he is also the most glittering of prizes for any social hostess and that is why Lady Renable made sure that Christine would make up the numbers.

The house party did not start well, Christine dripped lemonade in the eye of the haughty Duke and it went down hill from there. They are so widely different in character, she's fun loving, un-coordinated and gauche, but people love her .... he is well, an aristocratic, autocratic, steel to the core Duke ... he probably has never know how to laugh and enjoy himself!

Can two such people poles apart find any common ground ... I doubted it.

The book was a bit slow for ..... well, can I just say a bit. I can't define a bit now I've finished it, because I forget (even though I started it last night and finished it this morning) just what the amount was: a bit of a chapter, a chapter, a bit more than a chapter?). Suffice to say though that that just shows that it was probably akin to stretching exercise to warm up before you enjoy a highly enjoyable run in the countryside.

Any book that can then go on and make me audibly catch my breath and my stomach flip flop and them bottom out should be forgiven the fact that it was a trifle difficult for a bit.

I found myself totally and completely in love with Wulfic and willing that both of them could see that they were perfect for each other.

Run straight out and buy this book. If you need to read all of the series first get them all .... I am fairly certain that the investment will prove worth it just for this book alone.

A 5+ *****+ star rating. I would give it higher if it could, and this is definitely one that I will eventually get for my Kindle.

Having read some of the other books in the series, I'd thought this one would be as good. It wasn't a bad read but the storyline wasn't as interesting as I'd expected.
