Publisher's Summary

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.
Contains mature themes.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This was an excellent book. You can't get any better than MB and RL. It's a match made in heaven. A great author/story and a fantastic narrator.
The voices/performance are amazing!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Geraldine. I don't know if it was her dialogue or the way RL performed it. I could just tell RL loved doing the character and getting to read the dialogue.
Most of the characters have some funny lines. I found myself laughing out loud. This book was just fun.

What does Rosalyn Landor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I can't say enough about her as a narrator. The first few times I heard her, I thought she made the men sound stuffy and uptight. That was probably earlier books, as her men's voices are wonderful now. I still cant believe that she voices so many characters in this book. And then those same characters pretend to be other people, so RL has to change the voices slightly for their new "pretend roles". that really takes a lot of vocal skill.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A time to remember

Any additional comments?

This was one of the best books I have listen to. I really loved it and am looking forward to listening to it again. The only issue is that it makes most other regency romances seem less. This author writes so many different plots/situations it's just amazing and shows her talent.
When I finish , I just want to read another MB, but have read all that audible has and will have to wait for the next MB audio. I wish all of the books were available .

Surprisingly Funny Romantic Novel

Would you listen to Slightly Sinful again? Why?

Absolutely. It has everything a book needs to be winner. It was worth all the trouble I had trying to listen to the entire book. I had trouble with the tape's forward and rewind. I finally got to listen to the whole book (I think) by listening from "My Library" instead of from my computer's Audible Manager where it stopped and would not go forward from about the 20 - 21st chapter. I had trouble with rewind when listening from "My Library". I will notify Audible and it should be fixed by the time someone else listens to it.

What did you like best about this story?

Everything! From the time Lord Alleyne Bedwyn was thrown from his horse, left for dead, and found without a stitch of clothes on his bare unconscious body by occupants of a brothel, not knowing who he is or why he was on the field of battle; to it's conclusion. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire story!

What about Rosalyn Landor’s performance did you like?

She made the story come alive. She was perfect for this humorous story. Few narrators could read this story of wit, tragedy and romance with such feeling. She was flawless.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was moved by many and varied emotions throughout the book; in the beginning it was anger toward the cad who had stolen the ladies hard earned life savings. I was moved to laughter on several occasions, as well as pity, anxiety, appreciation, feelings from the growing romantic attractions of the characters. I don't want to be more specific so as not to give too much away.

Any additional comments?

For a lessor read I would have given up because of tape troubles, but I was so interested in this book I was determined if there was a way of hearing it all I would find it, even to the point of shutting down my computer, just in case.

I can't imagine any Historical Romance lover not find this book astounding.

I highly recommend it.

Wonderful characters

Another great Berwyn story by Mary Balogh. A fantastic mixture of characters, the storyline taking the reader through sad and deeply emotional situations, including steamy sex scenes but also full of hilarious moments.
