Slightly Tempted is Book Four of
The Bedwyn Saga series.
This is Morgans story. Morgan is the youngest of the
Bedwyn siblings. The prettiest. The only one without the
Bedwyn nose. She is no less determined, smart and strong
than any of the other siblings. She is just 18 years old and
therefore coming into her own. Morgan finds herself near
the war at the beginning. Through a series of circumstances,
she is helping care for the wounded. Her brother, Alleyne, is
involved with the events as well. When Morgan has the
opportunity to leave, she chooses not to. The wounded need
her and Alleyne has gone missing.
Morgan met Earl of Rosthorn, Gervase Ashford. They have
developed a bond and friendship over the time. He has been
looking for information about Alleyne. And trying to comfort
What she doesn't know is that there is a long standing battle
between Gervase and the Duke of Bewcastle, Wulfric.
Morgans big brother. When Gervase has found out who Morgan
is, he decides to exact revenge against Bewcastle through Morgan.
As time goes on and they get to know each other, they fall
in love. But Gervase has his secret. The reason he met Morgan
to begin with. He is realizing the strength of his love for her is
growing deeper. Must he tell her his secret? Will she be
able to forgive him? And what about Bewcastle? Will they ever
be able to call a truce?
Slightly Tempted is another wonderful story in the Bedwyn Saga.
Much of the emotion comes from the time of war. Mary Balogh
has written a story full of detail to make you feel what is
happening. It's easy to imagine the chaos brought
from the crisis all around. Even the upper classes find all the
money in the world cannot make it easy for them.
The romance between Morgan and Gervase is fraught with upset
and uncertainty. Can they make it through? Will their relationship
be strong enough to survive war and the Bedwyn family?
If you are one of those people that sneak and read the end of the
book first, I recommend that you abstain from doing that this
time!! It has a marvelous ending to top off the terrific story.
And to keep the series rolling on....
I have long had my own copy of Slightly Tempted.
