A good story for Wulfric,
By A Customer
This review is from: Slightly Dangerous (Balogh, Mary) (Hardcover)
Our hero is Wulfric Bewyn (the duke of Bewcastle), a complex character who if you have read the previous books you have already come to love.
Wulfric attends a house party and Christine Derrick (a widow) catches his eye in more ways than one (lemondade!). He invites her to become his mistress, then his wife but she refuses as all she knows appart from the sexual attraction between them is the duke. She also misunderstands when he says a duke could not marry her and lists the reasons why even though he is asking her to marry him! Wulfric has to then find a way to show her the man under the mantle of the duke(with his responsabilities). Along the way he does his usual trick of helping everyone else solve their problems and misunderstandings.
I always had a soft spot for Wulfric and understood where he was coming from in the previous books and am glad that this book does not let him down in anyway.
The last in the Bedwyn family saga, but can easily be read alone. You just will not come to the story desperately wanting te best for Wulfric before page 1.
