This is the first in the "Bedwyn" series and I rate it one of the best! The Bedwyns are hard living, hard loving, group of four brothers, (Wulfric, Aidan, Rannulf, Alleyne), and two sisters, (Freyja, Morgan), who are diamonds in the ruff. This book tells the story of Aidan Bedwyn who is home on two months leave from the military. He has gone to the home of a fellow officer, (killed in battle), to deliver the news about the death. The catch is the dying officer has received the promise from Aidan that he will do anything to "protect" the sister. It turns out to be an offer of marriage from Aidan to the sister. It is an offer made in order to help the sister remain in her family home.
Aidan's story is well told and "slightly" complicated as are the other books. He turns out to be loveable, strong, dependable and just a little hard around the edges. I found all the male Bedwyn's likable and couldn't decide which one I liked best. Being a huge fan of Mary Balogh's, I feel this is one of the best series to read, and as always the five-star rating goes to Rosalyn Landor! Yes, this one is worth the credit!

What did you love best about Slightly Married?
Everything! This book inspires a gamut of emotions: joy, sorrow, love, excitement.
Who was your favorite character and why?
It's hard to choose a favorite because the supporting characters in Eve's household were so colorful; likable. Kindhearted Eve is certainly in the running but I guess if I have to choose a favorite it is Aidan.
What about Rosalyn Landor’s performance did you like?
Rosalyn Landor reads with so much emotion she makes you feel like you are personally witnessing the events as they take place. She is one of a very short list of women that can do male voices well and the best for children's voices I've heard. Her narration of "Slightly Married" was superb. She males a good book GREAT!
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Yes, I both laughed and cried.
Any additional comments?
"Slightly Married' is an outstanding book. It's not a mirror image of other books that are plentiful in the Historical Romance genre. Mary Balogh is a very talented author.
