Slightly Dangerous ~~ Mary Balogh

Slightly Dangerous by Mary Balogh
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 Wulfric's story finally comes to life. Eldest son, head of the Bedwyn family, he is cool, arrogant, mysterious, and... Slightly Dangerous

All of London is abuzz over the imminent arrival of Wulfric Bedwyn, the cold-as-ice Duke of Bewcastle, at the most glittering social event of the season. But on this dazzling afternoon, only one woman would capture his attention-- and she was the only female in the room who wasn't even trying. Christine Derrick is intrigued by the handsome duke...all the more so when he invites her to become his mistress. What red-blooded woman wouldn't enjoy a tumble in the bedsheets with a consummate lover--with no questions asked. An independent beauty Christine confounds Wulfric at every turn. Yet even as he vows to seduce her, something strange and wonderful is happening. Now for a man who thought he'd never lose his heart, nothing less than love will do....

I admit to being occasionally tempted to read "Pride & Prejudice" alt-fiction ("What was Mr Darcy REALLY thinking? What if they got SEXY?") but I've always avoided it because I don't want to taint my personal vision of the behind-the-scenes action of the original. "Slightly Dangerous" satisfied my attraction to the alt-lit while maintaining its own identity. WIN.

It should be noted that MANY secondary characters from the previous Bedwyn-related novels appear, so reading the rest of the series first is probably advisable.
