Review

** 'Exceptionally entertaining... impeccable plotting and memorable characters, Balogh's book raises the bar for regency romances. (PUBLISHERS WEEKLY)

From the Inside Flap

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 Freyja Bedwyn, the wild-hearted daughter, meets her match in a man as passionate, reckless, and scandalous as she.
Growing up with four unruly brothers has made Freyja Bedwyn far bolder than most society ladies. From feisty manner to long, tumbling hair, Lady Freyja is pure fire, a woman who seeks both adventure and freedom.
Adventure soon finds her on a visit to Bath, when a handsome stranger bursts into Freyja's room and entreats her to hide him. His name is Joshua Moore, Marquess of Hallmere, a man with a hell-raising reputation of his own who is quickly intrigued by the independent beauty. So intrigued, in fact, that he makes her a surprising request: to pose as his fiancee and help thwart his family's matchmaking schemes. For two people determined to be free, it's the perfect plan...until passion blindsides them both. For as Joshua sets out to achieve his complete seduction of Freyja, a woman who has sworn off love is in danger of losing the one thing she never expected to give again: her heart... --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I thorougly enjoyed reading Freyja and Joshua's story. It was in total contrast to Eve and Aiden's story in "Slightly Married". These were two strong and socially powerful characters. There was a lot of honesty, such a welcome change to the usual formula. Freyja was no simpering miss and Joshua was a likeable hero. And as for the energy in love scenes...
Of course there were obstacles to overcome in the form of dreadful relatives, some of which were clichéd, and is why I have not given this book full marks.

Although very much a fan of Mary Balogh's Regency romances I have been a little disappointed in some of her more recent books, mainly in the "Slightly" series. Chronologically "Slightly Married" (the story of Aidan) and "Slightly Wicked" (Rannulf) come before this book, although "A Summer To Remember" introduced this family. In many of these books Lady Freyja appears and she was always a character I found difficult to like - she was positively nasty to the heroine in "A Summer To Remember" and seems to go around punching people; not very endearing.

Slightly Scandalous is Freyja's story and it's actually very good. It starts off as she is on her way to Bath to stay with a friend, ostensibly to be social but really to get away from her home and her neighbours as Viscount Ravensberg, the man she loved, is expecting a child with his wife (the characters from "A Summer To Remember"). Despite these events having happened almost a year ago Freyja is most certainly not over them - Bedwyns love only once, of course, and she loved Kit Ravensberg. What hope is there for her future?

But in Bath, and in fact before, she bumps into Joshua Moore, Marquess of Hallmere, who seems to be about the only man who can match her in fun, humour and derring do. They have great fun together (despite Freyja's lamentable tendencies to punch him in the nose) and it ends up that they will both help each other out by a fake betrothal. But fake betrothals are rather difficult to handle when people get more and more involved, especially when one of the two is accused of murder.

This book was excellent in terms of plot and character. Joshua, Marquess of Hallmere, slowly reveals to Freyja that he's not just a wastrel laughing lad but also has hidden depths.

Review taken from my Blog Post (#54) in December 2010, after borrowing the book from the local library:

Following A Summer To Remember (#52) which featured Lady Freyja Bedwyn as the rejected betrothed of Kit Butler, I really had decided starting out on this one that I definitely did not like her - she did not comport herself properly and came across as arrogant, self-willed and rude.

How wrong could I be?

Actually she made a perfect Heroine from very early on, especially paired with Joshua Moore, Marquess of Hallmere. He was forever referring to he as "sweetheart" and "my charmer", which was so endearing.

Find it ..... read it .... love it ....... a thoroughly and exceptionally entertaining book.

A 4.5 stars if I could award a half.

As a previous review has said this is the third of the Bedwyn "Slightly" series. Having finally finished all of them I can definetly say that this is the best of the series.

Freyja is seen at her most sympathetic in this, her story (as she should be, I suppose). As it is already very well summarised I won't repeat the storyline. But I thought the relationship between Hallmere and his "people" was well done and the sense of place, in Cornwall. I lost count how many times Freyja's nose was mentioned but that is a small quibble.

After a while the series becomes slightly formulaic, you can see the "romantic encounters" coming, ie a walk near a grotto, dovecote, lake etc. All the heroines seem rather careless of their virtue but the author steers clear of the "Regency-porn" that seems to dominate the romantic fiction genre and which I find thoroughly tiresome. The focus is on the growing relationship and not sexual gymnastics, so thank you Ms Balogh for that.
