Review for Slightly Sinful
Author: Mary Balogh
Date of Review: 05/18/04
Reviewed by: MaryGrace Meloche

Reviewer Comments: Criticizing a favorite author’s work is always difficult. Tragically, I think the Bedwyn family is running out of steam! The family saga is down to the crucial last book (A June 2004 release date -- Wulfric’s story) and I am afraid! If Slightly Sinful is any indication – I should be terrified!

Slightly Sinful is Alleyne’s story. Lord Alleyne Bedwyn is the fourth and last son in the Bedwyn clan. Stationed at the British embassy in Brussels, Alleyne is shot when returning from the front lines and left to die in a Belgium forest. Rachel York comes upon his naked body; Alleyne’s next stop -- a Brussel brothel -- minus his memory.

Of course, Alleyne and Rachel are the main love interest; regrettably, their relationship lacks substance. Significantly missing is the romance, the lust, the sensuality between the two. In fact, the entire book just doesn’t have enough interesting content. Tediously, I read to the end hoping to enjoy the Bedwyn family and their reaction when Alleyne returned to them. Letdown notice -- the family ONLY appears briefly in the waning pages. What a shame! The energy from the vivacious family would have given much life to this lackluster story.

Is there a highlight? The ladies of the brothel and a crusty old sergeant are delightful people. Yet, is their participation enough to recommend this book? Sadly, no.

I am disappointed! Mary Balogh is one of my all-time favorites. Presently, I am tracking down her Signet Regency Romance books. These little treasures are wonderful stories; unfortunately, Slightly Sinful is a poor imitation.

  • Rating: C
  • Sensuality: No Chemistry.
