" Rings with humor and the delightful echoes of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice." "
" With its impeccable plotting and memorable characters, Balogh's book raises the bar for Regency romances."
--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review)for Slightly Scandalous
" The sexual tension fairly crackles between this pair of beautifully matched protagonists...this delightful and exceptionally well-done title nicely demonstrates [Balogh's] matchless style."

From the Inside Flap
All of London is abuzz over the imminent arrival of Wulfric Bedwyn, the reclusive, cold-as-ice Duke of Bewcastle, at the most glittering social event of the season. Some whisper of a tragic love affair. Others say he is so aloof and passionless that not even the greatest beauty could capture his attention. But on this dazzling afternoon, one woman did catch the duke's eye--and she was the only female in the room who wasn't even trying. Christine Derrick is intrigued by the handsome duke...all the more so when he invites her to become his mistress.
What red-blooded woman wouldn't enjoy a tumble in the bedsheets with a consummate lover--with no strings and no questions asked. An infuriating lady with very definite views on men, morals, and marriage, Christine confounds Wulfric at every turn. Yet even as the lone wolf of the Bedwyn clan vows to seduce her any way he can, something strange and wonderful is happening. Now for a man who thought he'd never lose his heart, nothing less than love will do.
With her trademark wit, riveting storytelling, and sizzling sexual sparks, Mary Balogh once again brings together two polar opposites: an irresistible, high-and-mighty aristocrat and the impulsive, pleasure-loving woman who shows him what true passion is all about. A man and a woman so wrong for each other, it can result only in the perfect match.

I read this first before I read any of the other books in the series as someone recommended it after I read Devils Bride by Stephanie Laurens. Yes I am a sucker for the dark, brooding grumpy Duke focused on Duty. Then I re read it after the others in the series and recommend everyone reads the others in the series.
Wulfric Duke of Bewcastle has been the backbone of his family , helping and supporting his brothers and sister through their difficult romances while he himself appears to have no loving relationship of his own. Serious, austere and driven by a strong sense of duty.
At a house party he attends under the mistaken impression that it's a gathering of intellectuals he meets the lovely widow Christine Derrick . She had previously married a minor member of the ton but found her lively personality and friendly manner apparently completely misunderstood by her late husband and his family. Christine and the Duke appear polar opposites in every way- socially and temperamentally but they find they are powerfully attracted to each other both sexually but because both of them realise that the other is far more complex than they appear so there is a real meeting of minds. I loved the character development,
The epilogue is possibly my favourite in any Balogh book !
I would love to meet this family which says everything about how well written this book is.
Would definitely recommend! Sexy but also historically romantic!
