Review

Sympathetic characters and scalding sexual tension make the second installment in Balogh's Regency-era Bedwyn family series a truly engrossing read (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 Rannulf Bedwyn, the rebellious third son, enters into a liaison that is rather risque, somewhat naughty, and...Slightly Wicked.
With his laughing eyes and wild, rakish good looks, Lord Rannulf Bedwyn is a hard man to resist. To Judith Law, a woman in need of rescue when her stagecoach overturns, Rannulf is simply her savior, a heroic stranger she will reward with one night of reckless passion before she must become a companion to her wealthy aunt. Imagine Judith's shock when the same stranger turns out to be among England's most eligible bachelors...and when he arrives at Harewood Grange to woo her cousin. Certainly, they had made no vows, no promises, but Rannulf never did forget his uninhibited lover...nor did she forget that one delicious night. And as scandal sets the household abuzz, Rannulf proposes a solution...but when Judith refuses to have him--in love or wedlock--Rannulf has only one choice: to wage a campaign of pure pleasure to capture the heart of the woman who has already won his. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Mary Balogh is nearly always a really good read, but I found this one just too predictable and drawn out.
However, probably a necessary read for fans of the series.

If you love Mary Balogh books, you'll love this.

Slightly Wicked is the 2nd book of a six part bedwyn family saga, concentrates on Lord Rannulf Bedwyn third son of the bedwyn family and Judith Law gentlemans daughter. A chance meeting on a stormy afternoon. He on his way to see his grandmother, to be introduced to his possible future wife and she to fulfill her duties as a loving daughter and poor relation to her aunts family. Their paths cross which leads to adventure, discovery and love.

Brilliant book, (i've read 2 or 3 times) where the hero and heroine are deserved, your willing them to get together in the end. And the 'baddies' are loathed. Wanted the story to go on after to see how they all got on.

I'm a real fan of Mary Balogh's books. I think "More Than A Mistress" and "The Secret Pearl" are brilliant pieces of writing with engaging characters. These are some of her older books though, her newer books are the "Slightly" series following the Bedwyn family and the "Simply" series which tell the stories of four schoolteachers (not all yet published).

Slightly Wicked, therefore, is a story about the Bedwyn family. It's the second in the series and follows Lord Rannulf Bedwyn, brother to the Duke of Bewcastle. The events take place a month after the close of the first book in the series, Slightly Married, which followed the story of Aidan, second brother.

Rannulf is a very different character. Both the Duke and Aidan have very much lived up to the expectations of their positions - they do their duties admirably (apart from Aidan marrying a coal-miner's daughter). Rannulf, as third son, should have gone into the church - but didn't. Instead he's spent the last decade or so not doing a great deal, just wandering about and having fun. He's pretty bored and not expecting much out of life but is on his way to see his grandmother, who has made him her heir.

On the way he comes across a stagecoach in the ditch with a number of stranded passengers. He agrees to ride to the next village for help but takes up one of the passengers, a young lady, on his horse. When they get to the village he realises that she is an actress and courtesan and so they spend a couple of very pleasant nights together. He offers to go with her to York, her destination, to prolong the acquaintance but she runs away without saying goodbye except in a letter.

However, it wouldn't make much of a story if that was it!

Review taken from my Blog Post (#70) in January 2011, after borrowing the book from the library.

This shouldn't have been called "Slightly" Wicked, far from it ............. Completely Depraved Wanton might have been a better title to describe what Miss Judith Law got up to early on in the book.

She has had to leave home (probably for good) to live with her wealthy Aunt Effingham due to the excesses of her selfish young Brother, Branwell. Of the 4 sisters, it was her who volunteered to go. In actual fact, she knew that in all probability she would be acting as unpaid servant, and treated shabbily, as was so often the cases in those days.

With very little money, and travelling on the stage, there is an accident and it overturns. A heroic stranger (Ralf Bedard) offers to take her on to the next inn, as help would be many hours away. She accepts, but somewhere along the way she loses all sense and involves herself in one reckless night of passion, thus also losing her virtue and reputation. At least she will have something to dream about now to carry her through the dreary days as a companion.

He wants her to go away with him for a time, but she comes to her senses whilst he is off looking for a carriage to take them on, and runs away. Eventually making her way to her Aunt's home, Harewood Grange just in time for a large house party.

A big shock, however, is in store for her as one man of the party, Lord Rannulf Bedwyn arrives to woo her cousin. The very same Ralf Bedard who had bedded her just days before.

He makes honourable and dis-honourable advances to her, so does Aunt Effingham's oily step-son, but she holds firm against them. But scandal rocks the household when she is accused of stealing a vast quantity of jewels.

I enjoy Mary Balogh books. I have only recently discovered this author, and have now collected all the "Slightly" series. This one is the 2nd in the series and an entertaining story. "Wicked" lives up to the title . The main characters Lord Rannulf and Judith Law meet in a snow storm. She decides to add a little excitement to her dull life not expecting to meet Rannulf again but of course they do meet again. I think this author is the best Historical writer since Georgette Heyer. She seems to have researched the period, which some writers neglect to do.
