Slightly Scandalous (Bedwyn Saga #3)
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.

As the story opens, Freyja has left Lindsey Hall, her older brother Wulf's estate, and is on h ...more
With all justice, this should probably get a two/ two and a half star rating, but, I did manage to read this in less than a day, so it has to get at least an half star for that reason entirely.
This is what?
The fourth or fifth book I've read by this author, and I still can't say that this is a favourite series.
This was written in 2004 _ I think _ so maybe her latest instalments are better?
I can only wonder.
So far, a pattern seems to exist: I struggle with the beginnings and I end up enjoying t ...more
Wrong. Freyja Bedwyn was easily one of the worst heroines I have come a ...more
Very early on, she jumps to conclusions, hits the hero on the nose (it's a really annoying habit of hers), and marches off without talking to him. At their next meeting, she causes a huge scene in public and demands he be taken into cus ...more
This is a very enjoyable book. The sparring between Freyja and Joshua is wonderful and it's funny seeing her lose her temper with him - sometimes in very public places. They have very different personalities, but complement each other very well and seem destined for one another (and the chemistry between them is great!). One of the highlights is encountering the other members of the Bedwyn family again; they contribute gr ...more
The rating is not a reflection of Ms. Balogh's writing. This is Freyja hating, plain and simple. My disgust for Freyja runs deep. I read this book many, I repeat, many years ago. And I still remember how disgusted I was by Freyja. This is a 200% personal feeling. I am certain that she would appeal to another group of readers who love her to pieces. I respect that. It is just my feelings are on the other side of the spectrum. She completely destroy ...more

After boring 25%, the story improved.
But the hero grins too much for my taste and Freyja still a rather silly cow who was grumpy for the whole story. I know that suppose to be her character but don't like it all.
However the storyline is good though and I love Prue too, she is Joshua's cousin, she has a DS, right? Her character made us see the ugly and the good side of Joshua's relatives.
I will love to read Wulf, Morgan and Alleyne's stories too but much later on!:)
Slightly Scandalous was delightful and easy read. This book made me laugh a lot. Mary Balogh masterly deliver the story and she is rightfully one of the best writers in historical romance genre.
MCs had an amazing dynamic between them. Their encounters and banters made me laugh joyfully. Very good suited together couple. Lots of fun but also lots of angst and I absolute enjoyed it.
One thing for sure: this book will put a smile on your face and make you relax after a hard working day....more
I remember halfway reading this book I kept telling other people--- "I really love Freyja! But I need to see more of what Josh really is." Balogh keeps up with the whole "gradual, blink and miss it, growing" kind of love as opposed to sweeping emotions and grand gestures (which I do love too! I love all kinds of love bye) and I really liked it.
I felt li ...more
Este é mais um deles, e é um livro 3,5 estrelas.
So, when I first opened the book I expected it to be a rubbish and a disgrace to regency romance genre since despite the saying don't judge a book by its cover most people (myself included) do. I wa ...more
Freyja was everything I was looking forward to: confident, assertive, a little wild, and very, very willing to speak up for herself. Her initial meeting with Joshua was everything I hoped for and that she maintained ...more
Lady Frejya Bedwyn, the headstrong, handsome, funny and witty younger sister of the Duke of Bewcastle is not the ordinary polite lady of the ton but someone full of exuberance. I loved her! Riding horse, throwing punches and having fun in the midst of chaos... well, there's no one who does that better.
Joshua Moore, the humorous, fun-loving, caring, ...more
