  • Having never read a regency romance novel I was happy to take on this one leant to me by my librarian and friend at work. We talk about books all day every day (well, on and off at least) so I asked her to lend me one that she thought may tickle my fancy. I’m glad she did. I happily rate this 4 stars. Judith Law is a young and somewhat overlooked lady; voluptuous with fiery red hair. Some may say feisty. These traits are not helpful when your wicked aunt is trying to set up your ditzy blonde c [...]


  • I'm going to sound like a broken record here, but here it is: another Balogh, another winner! She hasn't disappointed me yet, and I just love her writing.Slightly Wicked is the second book in Balogh's series about the Bedwyn siblings, and tells the story of third son Rannulf (aka Ralf).As the story opens, Ralf is on his way to Grandmaison, his grandmother's estate, well aware that, once again, she's going to try and persuade him to finally take a wife. He's used to her "gentle persuasion" and un [...]


  • I will be the obedient steed beneath you. Snort. Giggle. Seriously, folks. Not hot. No really. Who ever says obedient, steed and ride me other than furry lovers? But I digress. Setting / Time / Genre: RegencySeries: Second in the series and I can't wait for number three. Sexy times: Yes, not terribly graphic, but certainly not clean. Let's call it three steps above Julia Quinn, shall we? Plan on reading more by the author:Yes!Synopsis Adventurous in her imagination heroine manages and assignatio [...]


  • I like for my fiction to make sense, for the time period in which it is written, and I can not get around the idea that no woman of good sense, at this time in history, would risk an unplanned pregnancy when she is totally dependent on the good will of others for everything.I understand that she felt she might not have another opportunity to have this type of encounter in her life but I just don't buy what she chose to do and that was problematic for me. I could not possibly believe that this wo [...]


  • beahreadsDando continuidade à leitura da série "Os Bedwyns" de Mary Balogh, eis que finalmente resolvi ler "Ligeiramente Maliciosos" para aventurar-me outra vez com os romance dessa família e acompanhar nessa obra a história de amor entre Judith Law e Rannulf Bedwyn. O segundo livro da série, irá retratar de maneira pouco tradicional o encontro da Srta. Law com o jovem Rannulf. A moça estava viajando em uma diligência com destino a casa de sua tia Effingham, quando a carruagem praticamen [...]


  • I've given this an A+ for narration and a B for content at AAR, which is probably 4.5 stars, so I've rounded up for the fabulous narration.One of the many things I love about audiobooks is that they’re a great way for me to catch up with older titles that, with the best will in the world, I’m unlikely to get around to reading for at least the next ten years or more. Another great thing is that it’s such a treat when books you’ve really wanted to listen to are finally recorded and made av [...]


  • It is one of the rare book that I consider that Mary Balogh's mediocre book. First, I didn't like the beginning of the story. Although, I understand heroine's, Judith, reasons about her choice for being together with a stranger at the first meeting, it is hard to accept.The plot was not bad but I still can't say that I read it with an enthusiasm. I think, Ms Balogh's talent mostly charmed me to read the book till the end of it. Maybe with another aouthor, I might had not completed it.I will read [...]


  • 4.5Edited***Writing is captivating from start. My heart goes to Judith for suffering such fate. But in all these dire circumstance she was strong, optimistic & still Dreaming. One of her dream come true when dashing Lord Rannulf offered her a ride, or an adventure of her dreams.It was fresh to have a reckless, following her heart heroine But isnt it was equally danger? He was a stranger! He could kill her or torture her or worse? There was no scene that make us sense that hero win her trust [...]


  • Si el primero me gustó, éste me ha encantado.Desde la primera página hasta la última tanto Rannulf como Judith han sido dos personajes con todos los ingredientes que me gustan en un libro romántico. Ella no es la típica dama en apuros (aunque se meta en unos cuántos) que se queda en casa esperando a que la rescaten, sino que tiene unas ideas muy claras y hace lo que cree necesario. Si algo tiene este libro que no me ha gustado, han sido algunos de los secundarios. Pasando desde el padre d [...]


  • Gosto imenso de sagas em que se centra numa família. Foi assim com a saga Bridgerton de Julia Quinn, e Mary Balogh não lhe fica muito atrás nesse aspecto. Adorei a forma como ela juntou este rebelde Lord Rannulf, que a todo o custo tem de ir de encontro ao último desejo da sua avó adorada e temida, com a doce Judith, que apenas queria ter um gosto do que é ser-se amada e arrebatada antes de destinar toda a sua vida a uma existência aborrecida e desinteressante ao lado da tia, como sua dam [...]



  • ★★★★★ So very happy this series is finally being released, one at a time, on audio. The amazing, ever talented Rosalyn Landor elevates this story.


  • This was much better than the first in the series, if only because it didn't depend on the two not talking things out. Okay, there was a little of that, but no more than reasonable and they don't take long to get to the point.I had a hard time warming to either protagonist, however. Judith was a strange mix of bold and withdrawn that only barely maintained internal consistency. Unfortunately, her boldest moments involved pushing Ralf away and her most withdrawn were letting him push her. That se [...]


  • For my views on the great narration by Roslyn Landor and my general inability to coherently review audiobooks, see my review to Slightly Married. Those comments apply as much for this book as they did for that one. In terms of the content, the first half of this is absolutely a five star read for me. The seduction and romance and sex of Rannulf and Judith's mini-affair were absolutely top notch, particularly as narrated by Landor. I thought I was well on my way to the best Balogh I had read to d [...]


  • 1,5 starsTw's: Attempted rapeNo one is infallible, and to expect otherwise is just unreasonable.Also, tastes are tastes. What works for a person doesn't work for anotherThis is the fourth book I read by this author. And for the first time, a Mary Balogh story didn't work for me.There has been something wonderfully constant in the previous books I read by this author: No insta love or lust.The characters behave as sensible people. They normally find themselves together due to a promise made by th [...]


  • Me pareció pasable.Creo que mi problema es que me dan ganas de estrellar la cabeza contra la pared cuando los protagonistas tratan de negar un futuro juntos ¡¡¡por las diferencias sociales!!! Que los demás se oponga, bueno, lo acepto. Pero que sea él. XD!y para terminar (view spoiler)[él finalmente decide pensar en matrimonio cuando la familia le da la autorización (hide spoiler)]¡¡¡¡¡No es lo que yo espero de un galán!!!!!


  • Thought I wasn't going to like it, but would definitely recommend as part of Bedwyn series (3.5 stars)Slightly Wicked is the second in the Bedwyn Family book series and is about Lord Rannulf Bedwyn, the third oldest son. At first, I'll admit I wasn't as excited about this book as Balogh's other ones (I've read all but one of the other Bedwyn books). I hate to admit it, but reading the back summary I was somewhat put off by the idea that the heroine has a random wild fling with a stranger at the [...]


  • Opinião completa em: historiasdeelphabaEmbora eu seja uma incontornável fã de romances e as histórias de época tenham o dom de me encantar, confesso-vos que Mary Balogh foi uma das autoras que experimentei sem expectativa e a surpresa não poderia ser mais positiva. Apenas com o volume de estreia da série Bedwyn esta tornou-se, incontestavelmente, uma das minhas eleitas e este segundo livro veio, de forma efectiva, cimentar o enorme prazer que retiro dos seus enredos e da sua escrita. Uma [...]


  • Really liked! The hero is sweet and I had this aww moment when he decides to be a knight in shining armorwithout the armor, lol.I couldn't put this down, I needed to know what would happen next, although the path this was taking was predictable but the characters won me over.Now I feel quite eager to read the rest of the series.


  • In all fairness, this book shouldn't have stood a chance with me from the beginning. One-night-stand plot, which I dislike in CRs, and in a historical romance too?? But Slightly Wicked was a truly lovely read.



  • Entretenido. Nadie podría pensar que la hija de un clérigo fuera una persona deseosa de vivir una aventura así. Rannulf me ha sorprendido sobre todo por la relación tan especial que mantiene con su abuela. Me gustó más la historia de Aidan,pero esta es totalmente recomendable. Quiero conocer al resto de los hermanos


  • Muito melhor que o primeiro desta série.Foi uma leitura viciante e mesmo compulsiva. Não consegui pousar o livro e quando tive mesmo de o fazer estava sempre a pensar em voltar a ele.Muito bom mesmo!


  • 3.75 stars.Ok, so far this series has been a pleasant read but unfortunately nothing stand up:(And should I read Freyja too?Question question


  • Aside from one very unfortunate “horseback riding” scene, Mary Balogh has delivered yet another winner. I love her books (so far without exception), and Simply Wicked was great. With wonderful writing, fully-developed characters, and a plot unlike any I’ve found before in Regency romance, this book reminds me (again) of why historical romances are my #1 Fave.The book starts off on a muddy, rainy day on the road somewhere in rural England. Judith Law is traveling to her aunt and uncle’s e [...]


  • Mais um bedwin que se casou. confesso que a dada altura a relação da judith com a avó foi era aquilo que eu mais estava a gostar do livro. O amor e a cumplicidade de ambas até ao último momento. gostei também do facto de o pai dela ter lhe dado uma educação extremamente hostil que ela achava que ele só fazia isso porque não gostava assim tanto dela , era afinal o contrário. Ele só a estava a tentar proteger de uma sociedade em que os homens olham para as mulheres mais belas e só as [...]


  • I thought the last chapter kind of dragged but this was really good! I think Mary Balogh does a really good job of staying true to the time period. She's clearly done her research and it totally pays off. The language, the scenes and plot totally fit with the time and keep you in the story. Both Judith and Rannulf were so lovely. I though Judith was a really strong character who knew what she wanted and wasn't afraid to stand up for herself. Perhaps stubborn to a fault though. And Rannulf was so [...]


  • This review was originally posted on Addicted To RomanceIn Slightly Wicked, we have our two main characters who by chance, meet on the road. They join forces and spend a passionate night together. A night neither of them forget. Our heroine is having little choice but to go to her Aunt's home, and become her and her grandmother's companion. She knows that due to the debts her brother has accumulated, that her family is on financial ruin. So she has no choice but to become a unpaid servant of her [...]


  • I love Mary Balogh and I'm quickly growing to love all of the Bedwyn family. This installment picks up right off from where Slightly Married left off, with Aidan Bedwyn traveling to visit the grandmother who has made him her heir, and to pay court to the young lady she's selected for him as a prospective bride. On the way, Aidan comes upon an overturned stagecoach. He offers a ride to the most beautiful passenger, a woman who introduces herself as Claire Campbell, actress and courtesan. Aidan an [...]


  • This book suffers from comparison to the 5th book in the series (Slightly Sinful) which I had read just before it. In that book, the premise was ludicrous and yet believable. In this book, the premise is just ludicrous. Balogh is a fine writer and I still enjoyed the characters, but I had many "oh COME ON NO WAY!!!" moments while reading. Sometimes it's a mistake to read books back-to-back like that. In this book, we have beautiful red-headed heroine, Miss Judith Law (the most gorgeous woman th [...]
