Slightly Tempted Paperback
by Mary Balogh
Part of the Bedwyn Series series
From the moment he spies Lady Morgan Bedwyn across the glittering ballroom, Gervase Ashford, Earl of Rosthorn, knows he has found the perfect instrument of his revenge.
But wedlock is not on the mind of the continent's most notorious rake.
Nor is it of interest to the fiercely independent Lady Morgan herselfuntil one night of shocking intimacy erupts in a scandal that could make Gervase's vengeance all the sweeter.
There is only one thing standing in his way: Morgan, who has achieved the impossible -she's melted his coolly guarded heart.
For Gervase, only the marriage bed will do, but Morgan simply will not have him.
Thus begins a sizzling courtship where two wary hearts are about to be undone by the most scandalous passion of all: all-consuming love.
Slightly Tempted is part of Mary Balogh's Regency-set Slightly series, following the adventures of the Bedwyn family.

Review by wyvernfriend
Lady Morgan Bedwyn has gone with a friend to see the excitement of the war with Bonaparte from Brussels, there she finds Gervase Ashford, Earl of Rosthorn who has an ulterior motive in getting to know her. She has to face up to the reality of War and the reality of her feelings for Gervase.It's an interesting read, Balogh doesn't spare the main characters from what happens during the aftermath of Waterloo or from the consequences of actions. I find it interesting and it really got it's hooks into me quite early on. The two main characters sparked off each others and did a good job with the friction between each other.I enjoyed it a lot.
