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 Alleyne Bedwyn, the passionate middle son, is cut off from his past—only to find his future with a sinfully beautiful woman he will risk everything to love.As the fires of war raged around him, Lord Alleyne Bedwyn was thrown from his horse and left for dead—only to awaken in the bedchamber of a ladies' brothel. Suddenly the dark, handsome diplomat has no memory of who he is or how he got there—yet of one thing he is certain: The angel who nurses him back to health is the woman he vows to make his own. But like him, Rachel York is not who she seems. A lovely young woman caught up in a desperate circumstance, she must devise a scheme to regain her stolen fortune. The dashing soldier she rescued from near-death could be her savior in disguise. There is just one condition: she must pose as his wife—a masquerade that will embroil them in a sinful scandal, where a man and a woman court impropriety with each daring step...with every taboo kiss that can turn passionate strangers into the truest of lovers.

Alleyne and Rachel's story is loaded with drama, sizzle and humor. I enjoyed reading Slightly Sinful and look forward to reading more from the...
This book is unforgettable. Our hero is badly wounded in battle and comes to at a brothel with a beautiful woman nursing him back to health. Love this sinario and this book is the mold.
3 1/2 starsI didn't start to really enjoy this until 60% into the book.
Once again, my greatest problem with this book was "not Wulf". Alleyne's happy ending brought tears to my eyes, and the heroine's circumstances and villain were cyphers at best. I enjoyed SLIGHTLY SINFUL pretty well, but this ranks third or forth in the series when it comes to rereadability (behin...
