I read the other books in the series, and ran out of steam for this one, it just did not interest me.

Mary Balogh has created a grand and excentric family for the 'Slightly' series.

As with the majority of Ms Balogh's books, I thoroughly enjoyed this one. I very much liked Rachel and Alleyne and Alleynes reunion with the Bedwyns. The supporting "cast" was wonderful as well.

This is a story of friendship and love during Britan's war with France. The characters are funny and loveable and the ending is really great!

If I'd had to review this book halfway through, i would have given it a "meh". I was annoyed at how the relationship was progressing and was disappointed in Alleyne. But the second half of the book makes up for earlier disappointments and ultimately I decided it is one of the best books in the series. While the tale of the affable youngest Bedwyn brother wasn't particularly heroic, he was a wonderful and romantic lead. Rachel is a great character but what really took this book to the next level was the lovingly told stories of the secondary characters: the four women from the brothel and Sgt. Strickland. The relationships were so genuine and the ultimate denouement of their escapade was so unexpected it was delightful. The reunion of the Bedwyns at the end cannot be missed, make sure you have tissues handy.

I read all the books in this series out of order and it didn't really matter except this one which is surely better if you've read at least Slightly Tempted before this book.

While delivering a message during the battle of Waterloo, Lord Alleyne Bedwyn is shot in the leg and falls from his horse, hitting his head. He later wakes up in a brothel with no memory of who he is. His nurse is Rachel York, a woman who has been left destitute because a con man has stolen all her and her friends money. Alleyne and Rachel devise a scheme to regain her stolen fortune.

This was an interesting amnesia themed story with likable characters. Alleyne and Rachel pose as husband and wife in order to claim her inheritance. While doing so, they take along her friends from the brothel to help them with their scheme. At the end of the book when Alleyne regains his memory, we get to see his reunion with the rest of the Bedwyns. My rating: 4 Stars.

Really great book!!

The Bedwyn brothers and sisters are such wonderful characters, Ms. Balogh does a superb job bringing each character to life, spinning passionate events that keeps the reader turning pages as fast as one can, and then reaching for the next book in the series...

Each sibling's story gets better than the last. I loved Alleyne and Rachel's story. They have chemistry and you find yourself pulling and rooting for them to be together despite all the odds they face. It is set during the battle of Waterloo and depicts a pretty accurate portrayal of how things were back then and how strong women were (taking care of their men). All in all, I loved it. Not just fluff (war is never pretty, no matter the century).

Enjoy!! :))
