Great book and Great series!! MUST rea ...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
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
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
Bathians??? Introducing her grandson by his first name? Going down to the kitchen herself to see how dinner preparations are coming??
I'm missing something here. Balogh has been going on and on about Bedwyns marrying only for love so why is it that Lady Freyja believes she has to take what's offered? Then there's the nonsen ...more
I know that Freyja’s character is supposed to be hard to love especially in the books preceding this one, but I admire her. What she (and I should also say Rannulf) did in A Summer to Remember to Lauren was scheming and underhanded and if we didn’t get some insight from her conversation with Ralf and then Aidan’s side comment on that night from Ralf’s letter (in Slightly Married), we would be left to believe that she’s not a good person. I don’t think she’s a selfless as Eve (Aidan’s ...more
Lady Freyja Bedwyn first meets Joshua, Marquess of Hallmere, when he sneaks into her hotel room to hide from someone. He is struck by her fearlessness, and how hot she looks in her nightgown; she is struck by his devil-may-care attitude. Neither ...more
Gostei imenso deste livro. Acho que de todos os que li desta saga, até agora, este foi o meu favorito. Adorei a química entre o casal e as personalidades de cada personagem. Freya é uma mulher inteligente, forte e determinada, mas muitíssimo insegura pela sua figura, embora esconda isso melhor do que ninguém. Joshua é um homem que sabe que é bonito e usa isso para seu próprio proveito, sendo a inteligência o que usa como arma secreda, pois ninguém o considera inteligente quando o conhece in ...more
Este foi um dos livros mais esperados nesta serie, não apenas por já conhecer a protagonista feminina de livros anteriores, mas também por saber aquilo que ela tinha sofrido até então.
Freyja sempre foi a minha irmã Bedwyn favorita. Dotada de uma personalidade forte, mas com um coração enorme, esta personagem irreverente vai mostrando ao longo do livro o seu lado mais doce, ao mesmo tempo que também nos vai conseguindo arrancar umas boas gargalhadas. Este l ...more
Neste livro conhecemos um pouco mais da sua história, desde o seu “amor” juvenil por Kit, um rapaz da família vizinha por quem tin ...more
Confesso que tinha curiosidade sobre ela, pois era destemida, altiva e completamente arrogante, era para mim a anti-heroína, pelo que li no livro anterior.Mas a autora descreveu-nos a personagem de Freyja numa nova perspectiva, em que passei a gostar dela.Crescer entre os Bedwyn não é fácil, uma família de aristocratas, na sua maioria rapazes, e ela foi a única rapariga durante algum tempo,e ...more
And apparently, in order to make the reader believe that Freyja is spirited and strongwilled, she m ...more
I actually was not motivated to read this at first. Maybe it was because of the previous appearances of Freyja in the other books and her supposed character is the 'A Summer to Remember' novel that I have not read, or because I thought that she would not have a very enjoyable love story. Or even that her name was so weird.
Either way, Mary Balogh totally wacked me over the head this time, because Freyja became one of the most impressive female characters I've ever come acro ...more
After finishing the whole series, I've come to learn that if one really wants to start from the beginning, especially with Freyja, one had to have read A Summer To Remember. I haven't read it, and after reading the Bedwyns, I'm not really sure I want to. Personally speaking, I hate going backwards. So if you're like me, start there first.
Anyway, I seemed t ...more

Lady Freyja Bedwyn... Freyja... Freyja, un prénom peu commun pour ce personnage féminin atypique, tout en angles, épineuse et épidermique jeune femme.
Pour qui a lu Le bel été de Lauren, ce nom a une résonance particulière. Comment rester indifférente à cette personnalité hors du commun, fiancée, "mais pas vraiment", au Kit de Lauren, et dont l'inénarrable interrogatoire lors de sa rencontre avec Lauren à Lindsey Park restera longtemps dans ma mémoire comme ...more
One of my favorite heroes, also. Joshua Moore is a fun hero. He is extremely handsome with blonde hair, smiling lips, a good nature and loved by everyone (well except for a wicked aunt). He is just the one for Freyja Bedwyn who has been unlucky in love and is not a very nice person in past books, but Josh brings out the best in her and helps to channel her wild side. Notice I said channel not tame.
Freyja is just the one for Josh Marquess of Hallmere. There ...more
The third book in the Bedwyn series focuses on bold sister Freyja, recovering from heartbreak at Bath (her ex's wife is about to have their first kid and she does not want to be in the area). Her romance has an entirely ridiculous start--she's staying at a not-great inn on the road with doors that don't lock and she makes her maid leave b/c of snoring and a dude just RUNS into her room in the middle of the night b/c he's fleeing whatever, and she covers fo ...more
Também por isso esta pausa entre o segundo livro da Saga e o livro da Freyja, o terceiro. Mas ao começar a ler depressa percebi que tal pausa foi completamente desn ...more
