I've been an avid reader for 40 years. You are my new favorite romance author! I've managed to find and read most of your books but I still love Slightly Married best of all. It seems more enjoyable when the main characters are working together rather than fighting each other. Many otherwise good stories are spoiled when the characters are mean and angry. I love nice manners. Thank you so much for continuing to write romance. Please don't give it up to write about serial killers as so many of my past favorites have.

I just finished "Beyond the Sunrise" and it was incredible. Your grasp of historical details about the Peninsula War was amazing. I know it must seem like a weird combination, but my favorite authors are yourself and Bernard Cornwell and his Richard Sharpe series. I could not help but think of Cornwell's Sharpe when I read about your Robert Blake. They were both officers who rose up from the ranks, they had distinctive battle scars on their face, they were not handsome but were still irresistably attractive, they were Captains during the battle of Bussaco, they were riflemen of the famous 95th Rifles, and they were one of Wellington's favorites. Did you and Bernard collaborate on "Beyond the Sunrise"? If you did, please keep it up! Your books have never disappointed me. Have safe and wonderful Holiday Season.

I loved the "Slightly" stories and was upset when the brought out Wolfs story in hard back first, since I keep my favorite books and reread them, I like them to be the same. (Okay I keep 99% of the books I get.) But The "Slightly" ones I will reread. I am looking forward to the "Simply" Books. Will they all come out in Hard back first? The Book One night for love is Lauren's Aborted wedding from a Summer to remember, isn't it? I started with Slightly married then went back to a Summer to Remember. I liked Irresistible also. I bought used but have not read yet Silent Melody. It sould be interesting. I usually pick up anything with your name on it so please don't stop writing.

I buy your new books as soon as they come out and unfortunately read them in one or two days, and then I have to wait another several months for your next book; I cannot force myself to read them over several days and prolong the pleasure. Either I'll have to re-read older books or you'll have to write faster! Seriously, thank you again for all your books--it is with great anticipation that I wait for April.

Having read the last of the 'Slightly' series I think you could succeed, Mary, in a side line hobby as a match maker. Each Bedwyn married their perfect mate. I thoroughly enjoyed picturing Wulfric being thawed by Christine, although after the dive into a freezing cold lake as part of his courting dance I wonder if 'thaw' was the right word! Congratulations on this very creative series. Each and every one was a most enjoyable read. And the finale touches an entertaining sublime!

My mom says that I'm too young to appreciate your writting, but I really do! I have just finished reading 'Slighty Sinful', and I have to say, Great job! I absolutely loved it, and I am currently reading "No Man's Mistress", so far that one is very good too. I currently have "More than a Mistress" on my bookself and I'm planning on reading it as soon as the other one it finished. Also I'm planning on reading the rest of the Sightly Booksm including "A Summer to Remember" and "Theif of Dreams". Just wondering, but do you have anymore books? I just love reading your romance books, it's like an alternate reality that everyone wants to have.

Dear Mrs. Balogh! I love your books very much, all of them. They are a perfect way to relaxation and positive thoughts. I only wish our publishing companies follow some order in translations. :-) I guess it's some kind of torture to start your series, get emotionally involved - and... wait for sequels, not knowing the end of the story and guessing about characters' fates. Wishing you luck and looking forward to your next books.

Dear Mary, I just wanted to write you a line to say thank you so much for writing your books! I love them! I have been working on writing Regency romances and you are a good one to study from! I also wanted you to know that in finally reading "More Than a Mistress," I do believe you have written one of the best love/sex scenes in any book of romance I have ever read. That first sexual encounter especially. The whole spoken/unspoken conversation between them- their thoughts, hopes, feelings- just amazingly written. I am in awe! Thank you again for sharing your talent with your readers. Best to you and happy holidays to you and your family, Deanna

Dear Mary Balogh, You are cordially invited to write an autobiographical essay for Contemporary Authors, an award-winning reference series providing biographical and bibliographical information on more than 100,000 modern novelists, poets, playwrights, nonfiction, and other writers. Published by the Gale Group, a major reference publisher whose titles include Contemporary Literary Criticism and Dictionary of Literary Biography, Contemporary Authors is marketed primarily to libraries. Each volume of Contemporary Authors contains approximately 325 sketches of writers in various fields and genres as well as three specially commissioned autobiographical essays by important current authors. Each essay, illustrated with personal photographs provided by the author, blends personal reminiscence with reflections on individual works in a way that provides both new insights for the researcher or student and lively reading for those simply interested in learning more about a favorite author. Common topics for the autobiographies include motivations for writing, the people and experiences that shaped their careers, the rewards derived from their work, and their impressions of the current literary scene. We ask for original, unpublished essays of ten thousand words (or approximately forty manuscript pages), although we are prepared to be flexible. In addition, writers supply six to eight personal photographs with the significant people, places, and events of their lives, beginning with a standard head and shoulders portrait of the author. While we request nonexclusive rights to each autobiography, the author retains the right to use the essay at any time and in any form. The author will receive $1000 upon acceptance of the autobiographical essay in addition to the exposure gained throughout the academic and public library market worldwide. Upon publication, the author will also receive one complimentary copy of the Contemporary Authors volume in which their autobiography appears. Many writers have viewed this as a stepping-stone to a larger work, later expanding their essay into book form. Other authors would never consider writing to book length but have found that this essay format serves their purpose well. If you are interested, a sample essay, further details, and a contract can be sent to you. In the meantime, please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. (Normally I would provide my phone number, but as your guest book is public, e-mail will have to do.) To find out more about the Gale Group, please visit the Web site at www.gale.com. I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Alana Joli Abbott Freelance Editor

I loved the Bedwyn series. Wulfric's story was the perfect ending. His book had me laughing out loud so many times. Sometimes there were tears in my eyes. He ended up with the perfect woman for him. Fredya (sp?) was a great woman. When she punched the old lady - I loved it! My Mom, sister, Aunt, and 2 friends have also read the Bedwyn's and everyone just loves them. I also enjoyed Tresham. When Jane made him talk to her like a person and the reaction of all of his friend's to Jane was hilarious. And the way you described his sister's hats was fabulous. Thanks for getting me back into reading again. Your books have provided me with many hours of pleasure.

I don't want to make this note very lengthy but I wanted to tell you how very much I enjoy your Bedwyn series of books. I stumbled across them one day while looking for something to read since Danielle Steel hadn't come out with anything lately. She used to be my favorite author because of her very strong female characters and how they handle adversity and always come out on top. I have found a new favorite now since I have read your "Slightly" series. Even though some of them are the stories of the men in the family there is still a very strong female character. Your emphasis on love and holding firm to ones principles and beliefs is what I enjoy most about you books and have drawn a lot of strength from in the last couple of months when I need it the most. Mine is a very long story indeed but I just wanted to thank you for writing such STRONG female characters and giving me the strength to listen to and follow my heart.

Hi! I find your books enthralling. I am a member of the Baby Boomers (born in 1946), rebellious againest the 50's but now old fashion. I think that men and women are equal BUT DIFFERENT. Women are the heart of the family, the power of the world. Men desperately need women to help them think things through, to cheer them on, to help them lick their wounds, to make them right or to hold them to high moral standards. Women have the talent to be in charge of and responsible for the "us" in relationships which calls for vision and discipline. I look around the world and I see women copying men. And of course, you can't be powerful in someone else's culture. I look around the world and see women living for their own personal interests instead of furthuring the good of the world. It is so refreshing to see the women in your books be powerful as women. If more women were powerful this way, just think how much better the world would be. Fish without mercury? Sustainable farming? Tons of low cost housing? Clean air over the Blue Ridge Mountains? Parenting skills required for every high school diploma? Coporate executive saleries reasonable in proportion to other workers? Let me know what you think, Mary. Thanks, Roberta

I really love your books. I'v always said Jane Austen was my favorite author until now. I am a high school librarian and have managed on Amazon.com to find all your books that are out of print so I now have everything you've written. I am rereading the Bedwyn series now and really look forward to the series about Miss Martin's school. Do you plan plots and characters ahead of time or do they develop as you go along? Perhaps a combination. Your characterization is so rich and the plots are complex and different, within the same Regency framework. You have given me a lot of pleasure. Thank you!! As I'm sure many people tell you, I'd like to try my hand at writing but feel very inadequate for such a task. Stephanie Laurens and Mary Jo Putney are my other favorites, but you're the best!

Ms Balogh, I've just finished the e-Book version of Slightly Dangerous and I am so totally satisfied yet ravenous for more. I thought that there was no humanity that could be given to the Wulfric character from the other books but you managed to totally flesh him out to 3 dimensions without ever betraying the character set up in the previous books. I haven't been half as caught up in a romance novel series since I ordered all the Georgette Heyer books and had them shipped overseas from the English publisher! Please keep writing prodigiously! One request: I just love underdogs. I'd love to read of a wonderful love affair between a plain, undersized man meets and has the adventure of his life with a plain, overlooked womwn -- and neither one is an aristocrat or beauty in disguise!!!

Reading books written by this phenominal writer, Mary Balogh. Thank you for giving me such a wonderful gift, and a new passion for reading. I am eternally grateful to you. Thanks again.

I count you among some of my favorite authors, romance or not. I must say that of all your heroes, Jocelyn touched my heart the most. I fell in love with him and was so happy that he found the woman of his dreams. The only quibble I have is that I felt cheated of his declaration of love before the ball where their marriage was announced. Jane announces she's pregnant, they must marry, and then ... nothing. It seemed like it couldn't be a good start to a marriage, but they seemed to get along fine. I had to scratch my head at that one. Either way, I enjoy your writing and hope you continue for a good long while.

Just wanted to drop a brief note to let you know how much I enjoyed the Bedwyn series. I recently finished Slightly Dangerous and while all the characters were memorable, I think I have to say that Wulfric was my favorite. I am glad you gave him a good ending and Christine was just the woman to break his icy reserve and help him feel again as well as fall in love. Thanks so much for a great series, Sincerly, Carol McCarty

I computer goofed, and my message disappeared. So here we go again: I suspect you may be exhausted after dealing with all the Bedwyns, but await your next offering with interest! I introduced a friend to the Bedwyns, and she liked them very much also, but felt Wulfric's story had strong links to "Pride and Prejudice". I have read P and P several times, but had not made the connection until she mentioned it. I also wanted to let you know, in case you were not already aware of it, that PBS is doing a quasi-reality show called "Regency House", starting on Wednesdays in November. I usually avoid reality shows like the plague, but may give this one a shot. The PBS network we receive is KSPS Spokane, Wa.; I do not know what you receive in Saskatoon (though I suspect Detroit), or whether various PBS stations are running it. I suspect they may be. Best wishes, Susan Nimmo. (Now if I can just find out how to sent this properly - and I have also yet to figure out where the "reload" button is to re-read my entry.

Mary, I finished Wulfric's story about a month ago and I have to say I love it. It was great how you managed to take Wulf and turn him into a real person without my knowledge! All of a sudden, BAM, I'm thinking of him with sympathy and aching for him to say the right things! But it wasn't unbelievable at the same time. It was perfect! Thanks! The thing I really wanted to tell you was that you should write Christine's sister Eleanor's story! She really intrigued me and I would LOVE to read about her story. How much better could it get? A wounded woman who thinks she's lost to love, content to spend the rest of her life taking care of her mother?! It's perfect! I hope you think about it!! Thanks again!

Thanks so much for the time and effort you have put into writing your fine books. I've begun reading romance novels again, after not looking at them for about 30 years. I have been seeking authors who give more psychological depth to their characters. I also have a tolerance for moral ambiguity which seems to exceed that of some of the genre's conventions. The online reviews in "All About Romance" alerted me to your existence and sent me to your books. I have been so entertained by them, but have also conceived an intellectual admiration for the way they are made (though the making appears quite seamless, let me assure you). eBay has helped me get my hands on "Dancing With Clara," "A Precious Jewel," and "The Secret Pearl." Of the books I've read by you, these three seem to me deserving of particular praise & thanks. With each, once I tore open the package from that day's mail, and opened the book, I could not put them down. Each also brought me to tears, so I was not only admiring the character development, pacing and clear, unaffected and nearly transparent writing style, I was also emotionally wrenched by them. (I believe the last chapters of "The Secret Pearl" made me use the most Kleenex.) So this is a thank you for being a living reproof to any remnants of literary snobbery I've had during the past 30 years regarding romance novels. I used to think, in the 1970s, that they were entertainment fit only for my genteel grandma & great aunts. Was I ever wrong! It has taken me 30 years to get over that misconceived prejudice. I am glad your books were waiting for me, as a sort of treat. I look forward to your future work as well.

Hi! Having read all the Bedwyns' stories, I was very excited today to be able to finally lay my hands on Wulfric's story . I spent 4 hours fiercely devouring the book and would say that it is the best yet. It made me think that I was in love with wulfric..haha...The book was really heartwrenching at parts, funny and so much more. I have enjoyed it immensely despite the fact that I will be having exams soon and should be studying today =(. Your writing is really irresistable. One thing is that it could have been a longer book and also to allow us to see more of the "Wulfric" side of Bewcastle. Thanks for granting me the pleasure of ur addictive writing

Dear Mary, Your book ,"Slightly Dangerous", was Outstanding, i found myself hooked from the veryfist page, i couldn't put it down i was finished with in five days, i read until my eyes could not stay open any longer, you got my heart thumping at the parts where i thought they would be and was excited for the characters at the end. This was my first time reading one of your books, now i'm trying to get the library to order more of yours, they said that it would take too long so i'm going to order them myself. I'm anxious to what the rest or your heart steaming pages bring to me next. Thanks.

I think I've read every book you've ever written and never had one I did not like. In "One Night of Love" Neville has a sister that is younger and was married before. She was married before and "supposedly" missed her husband so much she did not want to marry again. I would love to read her story. I can't remember her name right now but I keep looking for her in other books written since then. Please write her story. THanks, Janet Smith

Dear Mary, I took a chance on finding your website and am delighted to have found it the first time. My eldest daughter, who lives in Fairbanks, and I have been sharing your books for at least a year. I sent her the latest for her recent birthday, and she's going to give it back to me for mine! She's even started sending for used copies of the older ones. My one complaint is that I lose a lot of sleep by staying up too late reading your books. We're about to begin sharing with the youngest of the 5 daughters, who lives in Seattle. She says her baby is now sleeping through the night and she can once again do some recreational reading. All of us are great fans of Jane Austen, and read other Regency romances, but so far we find yours to be the best of contemporary publications. Thank you! Lory Hahn

Hello I came to your books from a slight angle. I have become a fan of Jenny Sterlin's work for Recorded Books through the Mary Russell stories & decided to listen to other things she had done. "More Than A Mistress" was a delight so I went looking for more & found the Bedwyns. Huzzah! That family is one of the most delicious collection of characters I've ever had the good fortune to encounter. (I couldn't wait for Wulfric to melt & a long time he was about it too!) To come full circle, it would be a delight to hear what Jenny Sterlin could do with them. Can't you just hear her raging Freyja or nailing someone to the wall with a vocal icicle as Wulfric? Any chance of it? I thank you for many hours of enjoyment as a silent observer of the Bedwyns. Maybe the Bedwyn women could start a matchmaking firm. They were certainly of help to their brother. Thank you again. Sincerely Janet

All your books are wonderful and I have absolutely enjoyed the Bedwyn series. There are certain characters that jump out at you and seem to beg for their own story. One of these characters is from one of your other books, Lady Muir. Her husband fell tragically from a staircase and several times she is said to have had a "love match". I sense a mystery here or maybe I am reading too much into her character. At any rate I would love to read her story. I am looking forward to your next book and until then will have to reread those books I have already read.

When I first read the Bedwins' book, Aidan's story I was fascinated by another member of the family; Wulfric. He reminds me of another character as fascinating as him, The Count of monte Cristo. Not the Edmond Dantes from the movie but the original one, Alexandre Dumas's character. Their coolness, they almost look emotionless. But that's only a disguise for their real hearts. Hearts full of passion, desire and in The Count if Monte Cristos' case, love, hate and revenge. Being in Brazil makes a little hard to get the new releases, but I believe that next month I'll be able to read Wulfric story and I'm sure it'll be as memorable as Edmond Dantes' story is.

I don't remember what year I discovered you, Mary, but I've read each one of your books. I have enjoyed each one, and I am rather sorry that your Bedwyn series is complete (although there are a few unmarried non-family characters yet). I read very quickly, so a book takes me about three-four hours, but I am also a very fussy reader. Not all romance writers write well, but you do. When I say some don't write well, I mean that their sentence structure, word choice, or flow gets in the way of the story because I notice the choppiness or awkwardness... I buy your books as soon as I see a new one, because your style is transparent, letting the story and the characters shine through. Your characters are complex and layered, as are real people. I enter quite thoroughly into the settings you create. Thank you for the pleasure--the escape for a few hours--into another good-always-triumphs world. The fact that you live "next door" also motivates me to read your books---only brave, hardy souls know the truth about the Canadian prairies: there's no better place in the world to call home! Keep your wonderful stories coming!

Love your books. Favorites are Indiscreet, Longing and Slightly Dangerous. I have managed to acquire all but one of your backlist, and I'd love to know why you don't strike a deal to get them reprinted (lots of folks are getting rich on your work). BTW, you look more like my sister's sister than I do, and she takes after Evans branch of my family (she has the same deep-set eyes, nose and thin lips). I think one of the reasons I enjoyed Longing so much was the portrayal of the Welsh "character" and society. It was like reading about my grandmother and several of my aunts---spotless houses, dinner ready and hot no matter what time the men got home, the hard work, the pride and family loyalty, and my dad had all the facial features AND the black hair and widow's peak.... Anyway, I just wanted you to know that you are amongst my favorite romance authors, and I have excellent taste (grin). Amy, who also taught English several decades ago

I love your books and can hardly wait for Slightly Dangerous to be in paperback; I would purchase the hardbacks, but to be honest, I read your books in about 2 days and my husband freaks when I buy hardbacks because I read too quickly. I really do want them to last...but from the moment I open the cover...I just can't put it down until I'm finished. Thank you for sharing the Bedwyns with us!

I read Slightly Dangerous this week-end and what a treat!!!!!Honestly, I didn't think it was possible to surpass the others in the series, but I LOVED it.What a gift you have for story telling!! It is wonderful to be able to go back in time to England through your tales. I think I've read all of your books, even a couple of terrific ones that aren't always listed on the inside covers. Needless to say, I hope for many, many more in the future!!!!

I love your books. Some of your characters have really spoken to me. But something has been driving me crazy. I could have sworn I read a short story about the Bedwyns many years back. I remember reading about a Ralf and Judith (posing as a Claire), but the story took place at Ralf's home during the winter. The reader met a few of the numerous siblings. I'm usually pretty good at remembering books I've read and the author that wrote the story. I clearly remember a Freya and a younger brother with a name like Allen. Just let me know if I'm crazy? Thanks in advance!

Just finished reading Slightly Dangerous and couldn't put it down. Wulfric's story was great. I ve read all the series except Alenye's. This was the best of all. Couldn't get a good handle on Gervase in Slightly Tempted and Freya was hard to like. But they all seemed more likeable in this book (even Freya) I ve read many of your books and look for some of your earlier books but don't know where to find them. The one book I disliked of ALL was No Man's Mistress/I couldn't feel that she was good enough for him. I almost didn't finish the book. No matter her reason's for her past she just didn't come across right to me. Just my feelings, but isn't it wonderful that you can get a rise out of someone with your writing. I will keep looking for your older books ( re read some of them every once in a while) and look forward to reading more from you. My next best authors besides yourself are Amanda Quick/J.A. Krentz, Debbie Macomber, Betty Neels (who will be missed). thank you again for some pleasurable moments this week. Maryanne

Dear Mary, I Read Slightly Dangerous. I must say at first I did not know what to think of Christine Derrick. I realize that she was not suppose to follow through like the usual heroins but she did seem slightly bizzare for a twenty nine year old. However, I fell in love with her when she went to Lindsey Hall and made her entrance with the little girl in her arms I thought that was so touching. I was holding my breath however, wondering what would happen next, but thank goodness nothing did to change my new found likeness for her, after all, she was to be my favorite brother future duchess. I am also glad that it took the siblings to bring them together because I was getting tired of my beloved warm loving helpful kind Wulfric begging someone who was not even in his class although perfect for him to marry him. Thank you for a beautiful series of the Bedwyns. I hope We will be reading of their children in the future to see how they turned out. Thanks again. Hyacinth Crichlow hyacinthvc@aol.com

Like so many others, I have discovered your books only in the last year or so and have read all I can get my hands on. To list my favorites would take take far too long; however, A Summer to Remember is one of them, except for one thing that nags at me each time I read it. That is everyone's assumptain that Sydnam Butler's artistic career is over. He still has one good arm, and has taught himself to write and ride. His art may not be the same as it was before, it might be even better. If you do decide to give him his own story, I hope he meets someone who'll give him a swift kick in the bottom and re-open that part of his soul.

I've been waiting for Wulfric's happy ending and find myself getting a bit impatient with him, now that the perfect woman has come into his life and he refuses to see it. So, I gave myself a time-out. I'd also like to get some information on your upcomung workshop in November. Thanks, and I look forward to the new series! Sincerely, Alyssa

Dear Mary: I did not write after buying Slightly Dangerous early in June because I have wanted to savour the story and let it settle in my mind for awhile. I have since read it an additional 4 times! I really, really enjoyed your story this time. There was something so profound about the two lovers and I was deeply touched by their story for some reason. Don't listen to anyone's criticism....I think this story is one of your best and I have read just about everything you have ever written (over and over again - You are my favorite author). You have such a way with feelings, deep feelings and I think you get better and better with each book. When I finished this story, I just held the book for a few minutes and sighed. In a world that sometimes you think has gone crazy, I feel you radiate a little bit of light. Take care and all the best to you Mrs Balogh.

I have just finished reading Slightly Dangerous and I thoroughly enjoyed it, which surprised me a little, as I did not particularly care for Wulfric in the previous "slightly" novels. However, I am now "slightly" in love with him, as most of this book's reader probably are. I think you hit the nail right on the head with your portrayal of Wulfric in love - he behaved exactly as one would expect, and the moments where he let his emotions shine through his facade (the dovecote, the ball), felt like intimate glimpses into his true self. I have been a fan of yours since "Heartless" and look forward to enjoying your next book.

Thank you so much for the Bedwyns. I enjoyed all of them however my favorites were Freya and Wulfric's stories. I loved the humor in both of these novels. The Bedwyns will occupy a place in my list of favorite books. Thank you again.

Dearest Mary, I have truly relished your stories on the Bedwyn family. I almost cried when I completed 'Slightly Dangerous' I'm just not ready to give them up. As a talented author I'm in high hopes that you can spin a new web and continue the Bedwyn's, perhaps through their children. I'd be the first in line to purchase anything new offered. You never left a stone unturned and from "A Summer To Remember" to "Slightly Dangerous" you continued to give updated information on all the siblings. You made that family my family, however fable, very near and dear to my heart. I am an avid fan of reading and now and forever a devoted fan of yours. Please consider to continue the Bedwyn's, and perhaps leave hint here if those considerations are possible. I'm sure I am not the only fan in such hopes. Thank you again for your extraordinary talents as an author. I admire the enchantment within your mind and your ability to share it's worth. Your's truly, Tammy Carlisle

The two stores I buy my books are Target & Walmart, both walking distance for me, aren't carrying your hardback, so when a neighbor offered a ride to the library I thought I'd look for it there. I was told it was out & I could put it on hold. They have 25 copies, more than any other book & I was 111th on the list. 2 weeks later I am 85th out of 113. I have to say this last Bedwyn has to set a record. I have reread a Night of Love on to all the rest of the Bedwyns already. Every December, I reread all the Christmas ones I have. Can't get emough of your books. Keep it up.

I came across your books while looking for something to read. I'm working on the "Slightly" series, but got side tracked with "More Than a Mistress" and "No Man's Mistress". I LOVE Tresham! All the Dudlys seem so full of themselves, but Jane just puts Tresham in his place and it has given me several fits of the giggles. Thanks. I love books that I can get involved with the story and giggle over the characters.

I just finished Slightly Dangerous and loved it! I have read all the others, of course. I will miss the Bedwyns and can only hope you decide to write about their children sometime in the future. I understand if you want to take a break from them, but please consider continuing your historical romances. Many authors are now writing about Victorian and Edwardian times. I have enjoyed those almost if not as much. But anyway, I am a big fan of your writing and wish you were going to be at the RWA convention in Dallas next week. I will be there to meet some of my favorite authors on July 28 at the Book Signing. Maybe you'll be there after all and I can say hi! Best wishes, Linda Exum

I have to toe the party line and say that the Bedwyns are the most fascinating of your books yet. When I got Slightly Tempted, I stayed up til 7am reading it cuz I kept thinking "just one more chapter" until I finished it! I like Freyja best, though. I just forked over 15 bucks to get Dark Angel on half.com (great used books); it's so hard to find and I've read the other books in that series and it's been driving me nuts that I can't get that one. I must say that yours are the romances that got me started reading them through from the beginning (make that the only ones I read at all anymore)! I used to just flip through to find the "good" parts (well, I was only 12 at the time-I like to think that at 25 I'm more mature now). Silent Melody was the turning point. I just couldn't flip through that one. I have such an appreciation for good romance plots now, thanks to you. Can't wait for the next series. Any characters from the Bedwyn books are ones I'd like to see more about! Sorry if I babbled. I'm told I talk too much.

I think he would make a wonderful hero! Or have you given any thought to writing a story for Gwen, Lady Muir? She seems to young to be satisfied with not marrying again. Wouldn't it be interesting for the two to meet up in the future? Both have had to overcome many difficulties in their young lives and could help each other heal.

I have never written a fan letter, however, there's obviously a first time for everything. I stumbled upon your Bedwyn series a few months ago and fell in love with Wulfric the minute little Becky backed onto his lap. There was no way I was going to wait until March to purchase his book. I've been anxious about whether the book would be a disappointment - make an unbelievable leap from him having a slightly cold personality to being a misunderstood softie. But at the same time, I couldn't figure out how you could write a whole book about him without changing his character. This is why you write and I read! Slightly Dangerous is fantastic, it reminds me of my favorite book - Pride & Prejudice but I think I enjoyed it more because you gave us Wulfric's thoughts, something you don't get with Darcy. Believe me I could go on - but lucky you - I won't! Thanks for a great read, I know I'll be reading it again. Best Wishes for Continued Success!! P.S. I hate to give them up, I hope you are planning something, a book on Christines's sister, Kit's brother, anything, as long as we can catch a glimpse (or two or three)of what's happening with the Duke & Duchess of Bewcastle and their clan!

dear ms. balogh, i just want to let you know how much i enjoyed your books. the first book i read was "no mans mistress" and i was so captivated with the story, i stayed up all night to finish the book, and in the end i had tears in my eyes. i am not usually a romance book reader but i read every single book you have out and i am looking forward for "slightly dangerous." it is obvious that you do a lot of reaserch because your work is historicaly accurate but at the same time i find your own romantic heart and your emotions so i want to thank you. i will always read anything you have published because i know i will not be disapointed. you always deliver a captivating and emotional read. my best wishes, cristina

Dear Mary Balogh, I have just finished reading the Bedwyn saga and I really LOVED it. The story could have gone on for several more books and I would have enjoyed them all. I really did like the way that you ended with Wulfric and Christine. They were perfect for each other and the ending of the saga. The Bedwyn series is one I will let my daughter read and when I get them back, I may even read them again. I was lucky enough to meet you at the Waldenbooks in Sterling, at the Dulles Town Center a couple years back. I wish we could have another signing there so you and the other authors could come back. I have enjoyed your books so much and will watch for the next one to come out. One on your fans, Susan Ortolani ottosue@aol.com

You are by far my favorite author writing today. What I like best about your books is the emotional intensity and pain of the characters - the heroes are sensitive, vulnerable, and yet still very masculine, men. The heroines overcome huge emotional obstacles in their pasts but refuse to give up or settle - they always maintain their integrity. My favorite books are Heartless and A Precious Jewel, but my all-time favorite hero is Wulfric. Are there any plans to bring old titles back into print? I would like to have every title in my collection.

I could not disagree more with Margaret McLean from Denver Colorado that wrote Slightly sinful was a disappointment! I found it to be bursting with humor and fun, and just could not put it down, like all the other books I have read so far. It fits perfectly within the image of Bedwyn siblings and I could not expect more of it. Wonderful book indeed, but Wulfric's story does take all the glory, well worth waiting for. And just a suggestion. Some of your readers may not be lucky enough to start reading your latest novels, like the Bedwyn series in certain order, and the books do follow one another. I was fortunate enough to be reading them in perfect order, they seemed to fit perfectly in that order. Thank you for being such a fantastic writer. In waiting of your new books I will have to resort to your older ones and I am hoping they will be as exciting and fun as the newest ones are.

Mary, I confess I was slightly afraid ;-) of what I would find in Slightly Dangerous. I've delighted in all the hints you gave us along the way on Wulfric and there was so much potential there... I feared (slightly) that I may be disappointed. Well, I was not! Not at all!!! I really loved what you did with him; how he remained himself, with all his complexity; how he, the powerful Duke of Bewcastle, finds himself completely powerless facing his heart's desires, and each times gives in and does what his Dukeness shouldn't let him do. I would have loved more physical interactions between them, but I realise how it wouldn't fit both characters. Christine is nothing if not consistent in her refusal of him, Wulfric doesn't know how to express his love, least of all physically. I always keep in mind the scene between him and Becky in Freyja's story (I think), and his deep unease at having this little morcel of human tenderness on his lap. So revealing! Thank you for all the serie. I haven't been a faithful commentor, but I have been a faithful reader. And, as others before me, I look forward reading the story of all the "left-over" characters in this serie and in the Mistress one. Sylvie.

Wonderful characters, great writing, a terrific story. And I never saw the whole Justin thing coming -- I loved how that was resolved. I'm now reading "Slightly Dangerous" for the second time and enjoying it even more. To watch Wulfric and Christine's evolutions -- especially the "oh-so-toplofty, oh-so-frosty Duke" -- is a joy.

Dear Mary, I have so enjoyed your stories for a long time now. I have especially enjoyed the "Slightly" series, both for the the fascinating Bedwyns you've created and the continuity of intertwined stories and characters. I always did like your Signet regency novels with the characters who carried over storylines like "Dark Angel," "Lord Carew's Bride," and "The Famous Heroine." I love the humor as well as the love stories. If possible, please urge your publishing house to reissue some of your earier novels. I was pleased to have last year's "Under the Mistletoe" with its new and old stories. Maybe a valentine book? Finally, I must have read your newslater too late, because it stated a June visit to Chicago. I would like to attend a workshop of yours, or even a booksigning -- I live in Indiana. Is that over?

Dear Ms. Balogh, My 90 year old mother wants me to tell you that she cannot die until she has read all of the large print editions of the Slightly series. Since Dangerous won't be out in large print until the middle of August, according to Amazon, and they haven't even hinted at Sinful's large print date, it looks like she will likely be around to celebrate her 91st birthday in December. Please hurry up your governess series to keep her going! On another subject: If you want your characters to have much to do with horses you should know that the "modern" sidesaddle that allowed women enough security to gallop and jump was not invented until Victorian times. During the Regency era and earlier the sidesaddle was extremely treacherous, having one or two horns to steady the right leg but nothing to secure the left leg other than a slipper stirrup, and it was meant mainly for slow gaits on dependable horses. I believe Jane Austen's friend Mrs. Lloyd died of a head injury after falling from her horse, and after riding a bit myself in an antique "old fashioned" sidesaddle I'm not sure why any woman would have put up with the things. I have also ridden in the late-nineteenth century version of the sidesaddle, which has the addition of a horn curving around the left thigh. This is very secure because the rider just needs to pinch her thigh muscles together and she has more security than a strong man would in a cowboy saddle. Although English law and custom was rather severe on ladies who wanted to ride in men's saddles, there are a number of 18th century paintings of prominent European women riding astride. Of course, an empress can get away with more than the average lady. Thanks again for great entertainment!

Dear Ms. Balogh! Just finished your Slightly Sinful book and I regret to say it was a disappointment. I have read all the Slightly books and this one is the least engaging, least interesting. Where the Morgan's story in Slightly Tempting was sexy and smart and sensual, the Alleyne's story never hung together for me. Low class 'ladies of the night' masquarading as Society Ladies and spouses of military officers (you must know that English society is separated by accents and speach and dialect is an immidiate class identifier)? A respectable 'well born' lady jumps into bed with a total stranger on a whim with no reason, no real temptation to do so (when Morgan did the same in Slightly Tempting she at least was under stress of war and gore of an 24/7 hospital shifts)? A supposedly experienced man not knowing that he is deflowering a virgin (how inexperience must have he been)? It was all a bit hard to take. Granted, romantic fiction is an intentional escape from reality but before you can escape, you must 'buy-into' the plot, this plot was impossible to accept. The final straw for me was when Alleyne finally regains his memory and proceeds to sit on his hands for weeks pondering what to do next in Bath, when he left his sister Morgan in danger in Brussels two months earlier. As close as Bedwyns are, it seems incongruent that Alleyne would not be concerned about his sister enough to at least attempt to make sure that she is safe. I suppose I could never conjure up Alleyne as a romantic hero when in all prior 5 Bedwyn books (6 if you count the Summer to Remember) he was a devil-may-care easy going uninvolved young man. Better Luck Next Time, Ms. Balogh. I love your books but this one is not your best. Can we expect something as inchanting as A Summer to Remember any time soon?

I started reading your books just two years with A Summer to Remember. I've enjoyed everything I"ve read thus far and I've had my library scrambling to find your older books. this last book, Slightly Dangerous, was simply the best book of everything you've written. There were time I wanted to cry, and I wasn't sure what kind of woman Wulfric would fall in love with, but she was perfect. This book was perfect. I kept going back and reading excerpts from it and this one i definitely have to buy it!

Thank you so much for leaving an opening in "Slightly Dangerous" for continuation of the Bedwyns lives. I was so disappointed that the series was coming to an end and what a surprise it was to find that it might not. Thank you, thank you, thank you. In the meantime, I'll look forward to hearing more about the teachers.

Mrs. Balogh, I just want to thank you so, so much for the wonderful Slightly Series. I was sick last week, so I pulled out the whole series, including One Night For Love and A Summer To Remember. I laughed and cried all night! It was nice to escape and visit some old friends. I've just finished Slightly Dangerous, which I started and finished reading right in the bookstore. I got some pretty strange looks as I sniffled and giggled through it! You remain one of the only authors I buy new, even hardcover, without any hesitation. Thank you! Courtney

Well, I've had a great time reading your last 2 books one after the other. My daughter graduated from high school at the end of May, and I was too busy to read, so I had to save "Slightly Sinful" until that was over. Now what am I going to do for the next few months? I agree with the others that "Slightly Dangerous" was great! It and "Slightly Married" are my favorites of the Bedwyn books. Thanks for your hard work to keep your fans satisfied.

Mary, You are such a wonderful writer! I love the "Slightly" series so much! In fact, my mum gives me a hard time about reading "trashy romance novels" when she sees me reading any of them. Obviously she has never read a well written book in her life! It is the perfect combination! Romance and Historical fiction! (My favorite times to read about are late 1700s to early 1900s.) I wanted to tell you that I think the idea of having all of them with "Slightly" in the name after "A Summer to Remember" was a great idea! It really ties them together and it actually FEELS like a family [of books] lined up on my book shelf! I particularly like "Slightly Tempted" as Morgan is the only one even remotely close to my age. Finally, I love their names! They are beautiful and very unique. However, I would really like to know if I am pronouncing them correctly. Could you please let me know how to pronouce them all?! Thanks a million!

Dear Ms. Balogh, I want to thank you for doing what you do! I have always loved to read but have always read books that were under my reading comprehension. Mainly because I didn't think I could read the sort of book you write. However, one day when I couldn't find anything in the "teens" section of the bookstore, I moved on. Your book "Slightly Scandalous" caught my eye...simply because it was purple! I have always thought purple was an important color, probably the reason it is my favorite color, and this was my proof! This book changed my life! I have never read another book in which I connected so strongly with the characters! Since reading that marvelously purple book, I have read the entire series up to "Slightly Siful" which I actually finished yesterday, and I have read all of them through "Slightly Scandalous" twice! As soon as I find "Slightly Dangerous" I will barrel through it. Thank you so much! You are a fantasic writer! Congradulations on your continued success! PS: I can't wait for your next books!

The first book I read was "No Man's Mistress", I then read the follow up, before I found "A Summer to Remember." That was about a month and a half ago. Since then I have purchased and read what I consider the entire series starting with, "One Night to Remember" and ending with "Slightly Dangerous" which I purchased three days ago and finished yesterday evening. I love your writing, your style, and the your characters. I could not wait to read about Wulfric after getting to know him through the rest of the Bedwyn's stories. I wondered how you would write a romance about a character who was always so formal, so proper, and so in control of himself. It was wonderful. If I could say I wanted to read about anyone else, it would be Kit's brother. The one that is Wulfric's steward. I would love to see you do something with him before you completely close out the series. He was such a wonderful character, a man with so many possibilities and so much to offer. If you ever get the idea to do the book I'll be one of the first in line. I'm hooked and forever a fan! It's my mission now to see about getting some of the books you wrote in 1995 and 1997, I didn't even know they existed until I looked at your Backlist and now I'm on a mission. Thanks for the words. I'm read a book or two a day when I'm not writing (I recently joined the Romance Writers of America and am on a journey to publish my own books). You are an inspiration, hats off to you and much continued success.

Hello Mary ~ I first stumbled on your book 'More Than a Mistress' some time ago. It was very well written, and I bought 'No Man's Mistress,' and 'A Summer to Remember' as well. Yesterday I returned to my sanctuary, and saw your hardcover 'Slightly Dangerous.' Without placing you in my memory, I read for five hours straight, and finished the book past midnight. They had to kick me out of the bookstore. It was very well written and engaging! I thoroughly enjoyed your humor, and your characters. I was taken aback by the fact that I read the last of six books, but I'm going back to the beginning with 'Slightly Married.' I'm looking forward to the journey! Thank you for sharing your love for writing, for letting us enter into your world. Thank you for the humor and the lightness of your style. p.s. I only buy hardcover books, since I believe they are very well worth the writing in it. I wish hardcover was available for all your books, but usually the paperback is all that's left if the book is older then six months. Just putting it out there that hardback is appreciated very much! ^o^

Hi I am a big fan who owns all your books. Got Slightly dangerous in the mail and dropped everything to read it. It was wonderful. A perfect ending to the series. I thought those two were a match made in heavon. I wondered who you could possibly find who would suit Wulfric and somehow you managed to get it just right without changing the character we had all come to love from the other books in the series. Part of the reason I love your work is you seem to grasp the fact that relationships take work and companionship is the most important thing in making them work. Anyway the book surpassed all my expectations (and they were pretty high!). I can't wait for the next series or book though I will miss the Bedwyns a lot.

The Bedwyns are a fascinating bunch and I enjoyed how you were able to show Wulfric as more human in ...Dangerous without changing him unrealistically. Have you or anyone else ever drawn up a family tree for the Bedwyns? I love seeing things "spelled out" that way. Thank you for the great work you've done. Kathleen Eavenson

I have just finished reading "Slightly Dangerous" and could not be more pleased. Wulfric was such a strong and forceful character that I wondered if there was someone fitting to become his bride. I am so glad you found Christine! I appreciated the conflict each character had within themselves deciding that they were in love. The miracle baby was a wonderful gift for them. Christine said,"I don't want happily-ever-after". I don't think she has to worry about that - she is a Bedwyn now. Thank you for sharing the wonderful tale of this unusual family. I look forward to catching up with them in your future novels.

She also knew that I would run to the store to buy it. So, when I went to the kitchen, there was a brown envelope with a big green bow on top and my name on it on the table at the place where I usually sit. Surprised, I said "Hey, what is this? For sure it is a book!" So I opened it and yelled because it was your newly born. I was extatic. She bought it for my birthday that is coming soon but she wanted to make sure I would not go and buy before she gave it to me so she gave to me ahead of time.

Oh Mary, why must you always do this to me. Ha Ha. I laughed, cried, got angry, annoyed, got goosebumps, any emotion you wanted to provoke, was. Most of all, as with every book I fell in love all over again with the Bedwyns. It made me wish there were a few more siblings. But I couldn't have asked for a better ending to the Bedwyn series. I look forward to the quartet coming out next year. Thank you for these books. Soon I will be beginning again with "One Night For Love" and ending with "Slightly Dangerous".

Ms. Balogh, this is my second post on this guest book. I just wanted to let you know that I bought, read, AND finished "Slightly Dangerous" yesterday. I just want to let you know how much I LOVE it. I had been anticipating Wulfric's story, and I have to tell you that "Slightly Dangerous" is EVERYTHING I thought it was going to be, I hoped it was going to be, AND then SO MUCH MORE. What a beautiful story, what a beautiful person Wulfric is inside his outter haugthiness and coolness. And what a joy and so much laughter Christine is bringing into his life. I LOVE it, and I love you :)

I have just finished reading 'Slightly Dangerous.' What a big disapointment to pay $21.95 for a book that should have cost only $7.00. I am a fan of Mary Balogh's novels, but this book was definitely not worth $20.00! Wulf's story was pretty boring. I thought that he deserved a more charming and exciting heroine. Christine was recycled from previous Balogh books. I did not find her to be unique in the least. The entire plot of the story was just so average. I think that Ms. Balogh ran out of plot ideas by the time she started Wulf's story. Oh well, overall I enjoyed the entire Bedywn series and recommend all of Ms. Balogh's earlier fiction novels.

Dearest Authoress Balogh, I tried to slowly savor "Slightly Dangerous", I really did! But alas, I couldn't put it down. I read for hours and hours, onward towards the glorious end! I will miss the Bedwyn's. What full, colorful characters they are! I know they will have cameos in the Nanny series, but perhaps all the Bedwyn's children need a story of their own (just some wistful thinking from a devoted fan). Thank you so very much for your wonderful stories. Before Wulfric, Freyja was my favorite. Now it's a tie. Hurry Nannies, hurry! With Sincere Thanks, Laurie Camody

And I agree with Robin about having to wait for the PB of Wulfric's story. Why can't you put it out in both so that those who want HC can buy it but those of us that want PB can too?

Hi Mrs. Balogh, I just finished reading Slightly Dangerous and I loved it. Wulfric's characterization was perfect. I liked Christine very much also. What a way to end a great series. I'm not knocking any other author but there was another series with a patriarchal-type brother with many siblings whose stories all came before his. The other author's last book in the series about the eldest brother just didn't have the impact of Slightly Dangerous. Thanks for writing such a beauty of a book. Emily Bellofatto

Very much looking forward to reading Wulfric's story. Am I naive, or is anyone else shocked by the fact that Karen Robard's found the title "Irresistible" to be irresistible? How common is this? I was very annoyed to see a novel with the same title in the same genre. I admit that I don't read much romance at this point in my life, EXCEPT Mary Balogh, as I have written many times, I greatly admire your work, and will never stop reading it. So perhaps this is a common practice. But I can't say that makes me like it any better. grumble, grumble. Still working on my own novels, by the way, with original titles. Thank you, Ms. Balogh, for your wonderful, original novels!

Ms. Balogh, I just wanted to tell you what a great fan of yours I have become since I first read your book in January of this year. I have only started reading historical romance novels two years ago, and since I have read them non-stop :) I came across your name on one of the romance novels message boards. Some of the authors and readers on this boards mentioned your name, and have nothing to say but good things about you and your books. Naturally, I went to the book store and bought "Slightly Tempted". And as "they" say, whowever "they" are :), the rest is history.... In addition to the Bedwyns series, I have also read the two "Mistresses" series, "One Night for Love", as well as "Summer to Remember". I love your writings, and I adore your characters. I cannot wait for Wulfric's story. Though I have yet to read 'his own story', he is one of the most intriguing characters in any of romance (I read you like to think of your books as "Love Story" rather than "romance novels"?) novels I've ever read. Before I conclude this very long guest book entry :( I'd like to ask you one question I have had since I read "Slightly Sinful". I had been waiting to read Alleyne's story since I read Morgan's story. I longed to know where he was, and what happened to him. Most of all, I longed for his reunion with his family for though I didn't know he was going to lose his memory when I was reading Morgan's story, I knew how much his family missed him. I have to tell you that the 'scene' where Morgan (without Wulf knowing) caught Wulf sobbing against the mantel is ONE of the MOST memorable and moving 'scenes' in any books I've read. After all that, I have to say that when I read Alleyne's reunited with his family, though I still cried reading it, I was "Slightly" :) disappointed. OK, as one of your biggest fans, I hope you're not going to be offended on what I am about to say - the truth was - I was VERY disappointed. I understand the storyline of Alleyne losing his memory, and that the book is about Alleyne and Rachel. But his family is a HUGE part of who he was before he lost his memory, who he is when remembers, and who he will be - ever. And as touching as the reunion was, it was too short and too blad, I thought, and very anti-climatic. Please know that this changes nothing on how I feel about you and your writing. Anyway, as much you'd like to listen to what your fans have to say, you're the one who knows these characters the most. So, my question is - was it conscious decision not to make the reunion a big deal? Anyway, I apologize for any assumptions I've made in making this observation, but it is something I have been wanting to convey :) Anyway, sorry for the long entry, but I have wanted to write you for awhile, and didn't know if there's other way to write you but to write an entry in your guest book first. Thank you again for your wonderful work, and I am so looking forward to Wulfric's story. Cheers, ISA D.

I've picked up "Slightly Wicked" and "Slightly Scandalous" at the library partialy out of curiosity, stemming from the fact that I adore family sagas above all else (there's nothing lieke revisiting the characters you've come to care about), and partially because I was running out of books to read (sorry..) Well, after swallowing both books in the matter of hours (couldn't put them down, and i'm a very fast reader,) and later on spending some rewarding time with your website as well as Amazon.com, I'm chomping at the bit to read any book of your I can get my hands on :) Thank you for great writing :) P.S. and regardless of what some people think, your books do not sound like something written purely on publisher's request, but rather like something you had to tell the story of :)

I will not be sorry to see the Bedwyn series end. I am tired of the family saga genre (Stephanie Laurens, Jo Beverley, etc). They become very repetative. You have written some terrific books - "Longing" was my favorite - as have the other mentioned authors, but it seems that once an author is successful they begin churning out formula stories. Perhaps it is because of publishers' demands to produce.

My 15 year old son has a charity where he auctions celebrities autographed items to buy gifts for children in the hospital. We would like to know if you would please donate a personally signed item to help Kevin’s Charity. We would appreciate it so very much. Kevin’s project smile came about while Kevin was performing his first stage play as The White Rabbit in Alice In Wonderland. All the children wanted autographs from the White Rabbit. Kevin knew then and there that he was going to act and make children smile. Then he thought that if he could make children smile by acting, why couldn’t he make a sick child smile by giving them a gift that they normally wouldn’t be able to have. So, we started collecting personally signed items of celebrities in order to auction to buy gifts for children who are seriously ill. We would love to build a good collection by the end of summer to auction, and start buying gifts for Christmas of 2004. We have celebrities personally signed items from people like Adam West, Robert Englund, Britney Spears, William Shatner, Frank Abagnale, Robert Ballard, Barry Williams, Robin Williams, Britney Spears, Dom DeLuise, Bill Goldberg, Donald Trump, Martina McBride, George Jones, Gallagher, Charlton Heston, Rudy Ruettiger, Liza Minelli, System Of A Down, Simple Plan, Smash Mouth among others. I hope that you will find it in your heart to donate a personally signed item to help our cause. Thank you very much for your valuable time. Please take care and we hope to hear good news from you soon. Sincerely, Donna Milligan 6237 Melody Ln. # 1202 Dallas, Texas 75231

Hello, I think I may be in a relationship with your No. 1 fan. It's official--through six years of exhaustive searching at second-hand book stores, and constant eBay tracking, my girlfriend, Rebecca, is set to complete her Mary Balogh collection with the arrival of two books in the mail next week. I confess that I've never actually delved into these books, but judging by how often Rebecca reads and re-reads your books, neglecting the mountain of other romance novels she's accumulated, I'm guessing they're "top-shelf" Now, of course Rebecca doesn't have the newest book, and since her birthday is on June 5th, I thought it might be a neat gift to give her. Would it be possible to obtain a copy (maybe even a signed copy) for her? I would certainly pay whatever the going rate is. I can't tell you how thrilled Rebecca would be! Anyway, thank you for your time, and for providing these books for Rebecca, which, incidentally, provides me with "down time." Best regards, Mark

Dear Mary, found myself visitng your website yet again, for the excerpt from Slightly Dangerous. I have ready almost everything you have written and must thank you for the many hours of pleasure your books bring. I can't wait to receive my copy of Slightly Dangerous, I am hoping it is going to arrive for one of my days off in the next few weeks when I will be able to hide myself in the garden (weather permitting), kids at school, husband at work, unplug the phone and just wallow in Wulfric's story. Thanks again Mary,

I've been reading romance, along with classic and contemporary fiction, since 1985 when I started with Johanna Lindsey and Jude Devereaux. I just recently fell into your books, beginning with Aiden Bedwyn's story. Since then, I've looked for your new releases religiously! I have to admit that I bought the first one because your bio said you were from Wales, and I wanted to read your spin on Regency. After living in the UK for five years (one in Haverfordwest, four in Cornwall), I immensely enjoy your dialogue--it's so genuinely English. I also admire your take on "less is more." While I get a clear picture from your prose, your writing doesn't weigh down the story, it keeps it moving, and it leaves room for my own image of a scene. I love your characters--even when their behavior is somewhat unlikeable as with Freyja, and I hope to see many more to come. I think you have left the very best for last with Wulfric, haven't you? Your writing is an inspiration for me, and I congratulate you on your well-deserved success!

I received a reader reviewer copy of Slightly Dangerous and loved it! It is a wonderful ending to the Bedwyn series. We learn a lot more about Wulfric and why he relates as he does to the people around him. His 'love' is perfect for him.

I never in a million years thought that i would ever pick up a romance novel. I never thought i'd actually LOVE what i was reading and fall so deep into the characters. I got an ARC while working in a book store of "More Than a Mistress". as soon I was done, I rushed to the library and got "No Man's Mistress". Now i've read every book from Tresham, to Alleyne. Wulfric comes out in a week and I can hardly contain myself. I would never read any other authors. Mainly because romance novels aren't my thing. And Ms. Balogh is such a brilliant writer. But a little bit is because I never want to become so obseesed with characters again that I eat, sleep, dream the Bedwyn family. I do want to thank you Ms.Balogh. When all is said and done, these books have brought emotion out in me I thought I'd forgotten about, and my boyfriend thanks you too.

Dear Mary, I should start by saying that I love your Bedwyn series. I must also say that I constantly recommend your books since I work in a bookstore. My store recently received an ARC of Slightly Sinful and also a promotional copy of Slightly Dangerous. I shrieked with delight! I could not put the book down. What a wonderful ending to a touching family!! I won't say more now, except that everyone MUST reserve a copy of this book because it will FLY off the shelves. Thank you so much for characters that touch your heart and soul. I wish you the best with all your future books. I'll be keeping an eye out for them!!

Ms. Balogh, I have read the five released books from your Bedwyn series. I'm sure you hear quite frequently, but they have all been wonderful on different levels. It is amazing how each is totally different, but linked together. It has been a long wait since I read Slightly Tempted. My anticipation to read Slightly Sinful was trying. You have an amazing talent and I can not wait for the final book in the Bedwyn series, and other books of yours to follow. I do have one question though, Wulfric's character is a father figure for the other five Bedwyn's. How old is he? I can not recall from the other 5 books if it was mentioned. If and when you have time to answer. Keep writing, and thank you for the relaxing moments, laughter and tears; and bless your imagination and talent! Heather

Dear Mary Balogh, I just wanted to write and tell you how I have enjoyed your Bedwyn books. I had not heard of you before and came across one of your books in a store and liked the description so bought it and have not regretted it. I have enjoyed all the stories starting with A Summer to Remember and my favourite hero is Wulfric so I am looking forward greatly to his story. Having read the excerpt, Christine sounds just the sort of woman I would have picked for him.

Dear Ms. Balogh, I would like to thank you very much for your delightful Bedwyn novels. I was at a loss as to what to read after I had read Jane Austen's novels three times each, and then I read most of Georgette Heyer's books at the librarian's suggestion. After that, I looked woefully at the reference librarian. What next? She handed me one of your books (The Ideal Wife). I finished that and said, "I thought you said there wouldn't be any sex in this book," and then demanded another one of your books. She gave me Slightly Wicked, and I became an instant Bedwyn addict. I have very little time to myself as I have two extremely active & spirited children, and my time to myself usually starts at midnight. Whenever I have been able to shake one of the Bedwyn novels out of the library system, I have taken it home and curled up with it late that night and finished it by a rather unearthly hour of the morning. I couldn't wait for Alleyne's book and bought it, and then I asked my mother for the first four for my birthday, even though I had already read all of them. I know I will read them over and over again until they break in half, and then I will have to buy new ones. I am both eager and sad to know that Wulfric's story is finally going to be released -- eager because he is, without a doubt, one of the best characters created in any novel that I have ever read -- and sad because, of course, the instant I am able to get my hands on it, I will finish it within about six hours, and then there will be no more Bedwyn novels for me. Alas. Oh, well. I thank you for providing such a wonderful way to spend the little time to myself that I have. I know I should be spending my time to myself doing chores (balancing the checkbook, folding laundry, picking up toys, blah, blah, etc.), but who wants to do that at midnight?! (Or at any other time, for that matter, when the alternative is spending time with the Bedwyns?) Thank you again, especially for Wulfric. You must have positively delighted in throwing out little tantalizing tidbits about his character in the first five books. Were you chuckling when you did it? I would have been, had I had the great fortune to be in your creative shoes. Oh, dear. I am babbling ceaselessly, and I am sure you have no time for it. Thank you. Sincerely and gratefully, Beth Nelson.

Hi, Mary: You are such a wonderful writer. I think I have read and re-read hundreds of books in a year. But your novels are truly outstanding. Your characterization is superb while the story line keeps me so entranced that I almost forget to breathe. Since my storage space has run out, I decided to buy only electronic books (ebooks) for the past six months. I have purchased many, many, ebooks and have, I think, 7 of your ebooks. I enjoy them so much on my laptop computer! I know "Simply Dangerous" is due on June 1st,2004. I can hardly wait to read it as an ebook which the Random House site said would be available as an ebook but I can find it nowhere for sale or pre-sale. I would love to have all your older books as ebooks also. If you have any information on this ebook's availability, I would very much appreciate it if you would let me know. I am going to have back surgery the last week of May and I would love to read it while I'm recuperating. Keep writing those wonderful books! Sincerely, Shirley A.

My dearest Mary, I have read all but Alleyne's and Wulf's story's (naturally)I am a book writer myself, well I am not known yet but I do hope to be soon! I was in North Carolina for a while and started writing a book with a Duke in it as well, when I came back to Wisconsin I came upon a book called Slightly Scandelous, let me just say that Freyja can be a role model for most girls, and Wulfric is quite inticing himself, he his my very favorite of the Bedwyns. I applaud you and thank you for writing the books, they could quite possibly be the best books out there, I cannot wait for Slightly Dangerous to come out. It will be interesting to see if fair maidan can melt Wulf's cold heart and bring a smile to his hook nosed face like he has to mine (though I do not have a hook nose, absoultely no offense to anyone who does)I do hope you consider one day writing stories about the children, like Davy his sister and Freyja and Joshua's child. Any other child that comes along as well, I think I have written enough to let you know how much I appreciate the work you do and look forward to all your other future novels. Crystal.

I noticed that Slightly Dangerous had a slight continuity error toward the end of the book. At the point where Mrs. Derrick rolls down the hill, Alleyne and his daughter - who had just recently galloped off into the woods - are there to suggest that the Duke take Mrs. Derrick to the lake walk. Pardon me for having obtained a reading copy ahead of the publishing schedule, but I couldn't wait to be able to read the book. I had my own ideas of the sort of wife he would get, but they didn't come close to Mrs. Derrick - who was delightful. Thank you for an excellent series.

I am having a look at your website after the famous author Rhys Bowen said that you are her favourite writer. I am not sure if I could cope with reading your books as your idyllic childhood was enough to start me crying. I had a very unhappy childhood, for Christmas 1962 I was given an empty box to play with, my Father told me it was a new toy, "Action Man Deserter",- how cruel. I loved my Dad when I was a little boy, and he loved me, he would take me everywhere sitting on his shoulders, which was very uncomfortable on long car journeys. Did you know that the book you disliked, "Moby Dick" was filmed in Fishguard Harbour? Everything was fine until the rubber whale went beserk and tried eating Gregory Peck. Everyone thought that the whale would be found when the batteries ran down, but no, the whale disappeared, and ever since that day the local people of Goodwick and Fishguard have spent many an evening playing "Spotted Dick".

I am so glad that you portrayed Wulf so that we can understand him as a true person with feelings, not just a cold aristocrat. I truly felt his pain! I wanted so much to help him with his social skills!! Thank you so much, I always enjoy your novels and order the old ones off the Internet.

This is my first fan mail letter I have ever written. Just had to tell you, your the greatest. My # one author. I started with the "Christmas Promise" & have bought every one since. There are a few back Regency's I have not found yet but am in hopes of getting them soon. I stood up to 2am to finish "Simply Sinful" & each time I finish one, I say that one was the best. I can't wait for the last one in the series. I have gotten my daughter hooked on your books also. We are a 3 generation family of readers. Myself, my Daughter & my Granddaughter. I have just gotten webtv & when I saw your address at the end, I just had to write. Your books keep me young. I was just 75 last month. Best Wishes & hope to read many many more of your books.

Hi Ms. Balogh: Can't tell you how much I'm enjoying your Slightly series. Just finished a review on Sinful and its up at romancereaderatheart (under book reviews)... Anyway, part of the reason I've enjoyed the stories is because I'm a virgin lover. Just don't do widow stories. I know, I know...So I was real disappointed to see Wulf's heroine is a widow! Several readers on reading list thru Yahoogroups are having a good laugh about my aversion to widows :), but more share my love of virgins. Anyway, we were wondering if Wulf's heroine might be a virgin widow? You can beat me now. Please do :) But could you give us faithful readers an itsy, bitsy hint? ...thanks Debbie Jett

Hello Mary, I'm so glad to be back on your site again, my old computer crashed and I lost all my favorites and bookmarks. It's taken a long time but I'm finally building the list again. Many years ago (well at least 5!) I wrote to you when I had a used bookstore--Patti's Bookstore--I have had to close the store due to Rheumatoid arthritis. I'm good as long as I don't have to carry too much heavy stuff or do a lot of reaching and filing books is both! I have all the books in the Slightly series, when it's a series like that I like to get them all before I read them but yours was too delicious, I had to start it and of course I'm hooked now! I belong to 3 book groups at our local library and I'm hoping to suggest the latest Slightly book to read in the romance group this month. They all love your books so I'm pretty sure the suggestion will be approved! It's wonderful to know I'm going to be getting your newsletters again Mary, I always looked forward to them. Take care Mary, Hugs...Patti Herwick

A few months ago I bought Slightly Married, Wicked and Scandalous. Then I found out on my Byron Data Base that there are earlier books in the series. So back on the shelf they go until I can get copies of One Night For Love and A Summer To Remember.(I hate to read books out of order.) I LOVE having family members and other characters continue in other books. I think a lot of us like to see the family thread through these books. The reviews in the guest book really encourage me to get these books and start reading. Thanks for the stories I know I will enjoy. I would love to have authors pronounce odd names for us. I have a hard time relating to a hero/heroine if I have no idea how to say the name. The Welsh are really great story tellers as I understand it. Best wishes in all that you do. Cindy

Ciao from Italy Mary ! I started reading romance books after reading your " Unforgiven " some years ago: this book convinced me that romance can be something very different from a B - class reading ! Now I know many other romance authors, but your books are stll my favourites. I would like to submit you a little question: I was somehow surprised by your choice of a " nice guy " as a match for Freyja - after " A summer to remember", for F. I'd rather think of some kind of strong mate, and perhaps a love-and-war plot ... probably similar to Moira and Ken relationship ... I'm curious to know the reason for your choice ? thanks for your reply if you ever will send me one, thanks in any case for the great hours you let me spend on your books and once again, bravissima ! cheers Maria Rosa

Dear Mary, I love your Bedwyn series and go into withdrawls until the next one comes out. You write their stories so well and I feel like I am a part of the family. Since the first book I have developed a bit of a crush on Wulfric and i'm so excited to see who you pick for him. I have a need to see a softer side of him we only get a glimps at in the other books. I have been disappointed by other authors who rush thier final book and leave me without that sense of closure. But you have written the same for each of the siblings, and I have no doubt you'll let The Duke find the happiness and love the others have. So I thank you for all the stories, for letting me escape to another time and place if only for a little while. If I am lucky one day I will find my own Wulfric. But if you happen to personally know any, please send them to Montana. :) A loyal fan, Shannon Sager

I admire the family you have created for daring to step outside the boundries laid out for them due to their station. It makes for such exciting reading.

You would be one of the best writers that I have come across. I have 320 Historical Romance Novels in my bookcase which includes 50 Authors I am an avid reader & will read a book in 2 days, also I re-read your books. I have all your books to do with the Bedwyns. The first book I came across was Slightly Married, after looking at your web site I found you had 2 previous books to do with the series, which I sent for from America. I absolutely loved Kit, unfortunately I received A Summer to Remember first,& couldn't help but fall in love with Kit ( and yes I would love you to write a book especially about Sydnam Butler & Lady Muir) then I read One Night for Love, my heart went out for Neville & Lily & then I was able to understand Laurens story better. Then I have read each Slightlys as they have come out. I have Slightly Sinful on order from America at the moment. Freyja & Joshua would be my favourite book. Also I read More than a Mistress & No Mans Mistress which I enjoyed so much. I loved Ferdinand the best though.The new series sounds great, but I can't wait for Slightly Dangerous to come out. Wulfric is such a snob I hope he falls hard.(How the mighty fall). Keep up the good work.

I really liked the Bedwyn series. But I felt that your marketing department did you a great disservice with "Slightly Tempted". It's really difficult to credit the plot device when one knows perfectly well that Alleyne doesn't die because it states clearly on the inside of the front cover that he's getting his own book the next month! I would have liked to mourn his loss, berate you for killing off such a facinating character, and then rejoice at his reappearance.

Greetings, Mary Balogh, I hope I find the pronounciation for your last name somewhere in your website; having your name right is important to me. You are the first author I've ever written to proclaiming myself one of your fans! I am an avid reader, sometimes all I do is read all day and most of the night. Therefore, a good author is imperative at this date in my reading career. I had thought myself finished with historical romances, that I had grown beyond them and was close to having read the most of them, anyway. I had found myself knowing what was going to happen, in general, & couldn't get "hooked" as I long to do with every book. God intervenes into my best laid plans, thank goodness, and I accidently got one of your ebooks recently, A Summer to Remember. In my snobbery I didn't even read it until I'd exhausted all the others and even had re-read some good ones before I opened yours up. In the beginning I thought I was right, for sure enough there was the description of the highest level of English society complete with a rigid disapproving young beauty as her destiny caused her to collide with an impossibly handsome and terribly rich young rascal. But I was willing to read a bit further, having noticed that your first pages were really well written & I've found that a good author can take any subject and fill it with fresh fascination. I was relieved to notice the absence of cuss words, then a respectful attitude toward God and later sexual encounters that were so well written that I was charmed rather than repulsed. Yes'm, you've got me hook, line and sinker, as my Grampa from the hills of Oklahoma used to say. So, thank you for a new (to me) artist to read, spending pleasant hours in sharply defined worlds that are so believable yet with fascinating differences in the plot that keep me involved even when I'm not actively reading! And bless your heart, you needn't answer my message. While I'm impressed that you usually do, I'd rather you spend your time writing nice long novels that I can loose myself in! Oh, would you consider putting pictures in your books like they did in the olden days? Thanks for being you! Aen Stark

Hello Mary! I found slightly scandelous first quite by accident but once I started I could not put it down for a second. And then I read the rest of the "Slightly" seris and can not wait for Wulfic's story at all. And reading the preveiw for Alleyne oh my gosh I can't wait to find out how it all comes together. You have a wonderful way of putting a story together. And I truly love the Bedwyns. Thank you.

I am also one of your fans who is looking forward to reading Sydnam Butler's story. He is such an interesting character. I recently re-read "A Summer to Remember" and he just talks to me. I can't wait for him to find love. I absolutely love all your books and am always trying to find your older books. I recently read your books about Rex, Ken, Nathaniel and Eton (the Four Horsemen) and loved their stories. You are truly a gem of a writer.... Please... Please... keep them coming.

Dear Ms. Balogh, I can't begin to tell you how I love your books, most especially the Bedwyn Series. I just find myself totally immersed in the story and in love with the characters. As I completed the last available in the series, I am now waiting (totally impatiently)for Alleyne's story and then for Wulfric's. One of my favorite moments was in Slightly Tempted when Wulfric tells Morgan, "And so I am to cheerfully give away the last one of my family to someone who believes he needs her more than I". My heart just ached and I had to stop for crying. I can't wait to find out who will be the special woman just for him and to see him well and happy. June can not come fast enough! I will watch for all with great anticipation and I thank you so much for the many hours and hours of enjoyment! Many thanks, Melissa Atkinson

Recovering from heart by-pass surgery, reading your stories helped pass the first few miserable weeks more easily as I was emersed in the characters and their lives. Although 6 months have passed, after I purchased the third Bedwyn book, I have gone back to read the other two over again. Thank you for some of the most readable pages of my collection of Regency books. I'm sure to take them up again next year, to enjoy the descriptions of life in those years, and get to know the people in them. Movies and television stories have never give me the enjoyment of good writing which my imagination can picture. There are advantages of living these past 70 years loving good books, so I thank you for your talent and for all the efforts your literary career demands of you. Sincerely, MaryAnne Powers

I particularly enjoy your "Bedwyn" series, but enjoyed "Slightly Married" by far the most. The characters seem much more fleshed out than in the usual regency romance.

I notice you do not have many guest book comments from the UK. Is this because your publishers do not promote your books here? I am sure you would find many fans.

I WOULD LOVE TO SEE HIS LEADING LADY DO SOMETHING LIKE, WHILE PLAYING WITH THE CHILDREN SLIDE DOWN A BANISTER AND GET CAUGHT BY HIM, LOOKING DOWN HIS BEDWYN NOSE AT HER. HE REALLY NEEDS HIS FEATHERS RUFFLED. CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT YOU DO!!!

I only discovered your books with the Bedwyn series and have enjoyed each and every one, So glad to see you have a book coming soon on Alleyn and than Wulfric. As I finished Slightly Tempted I just knew that had to be Alleyne standing on the terrace. Good Job. Keep them coming.

Dear Ms. Balogh: I've written to you before and you've been very kind in responding, despite how busy you are. I thank you very much for that. I enjoy your books tremendously, esp. since I love the time period that you write about. Having visited Bath, I enjoy putting your characters in the scenes that I remember. I've always loved Jane Austen's stories and have read everything I could find. When you refer to them in your stories, (No Man's Mistress, for example), I can appreciate the character's point of view so much more. I always enjoyed Charlotte Bronte, too, but of course, she was a romantic writer as well. I very much look forward to your next book. Your stories always seem so fresh, despite how many you've written. I don't know how you do it! Thank you for many enjoyable hours of reading. Jeanne Eisenhut

Hello Mary, I am writing to you on behalf of my 85 year old grandmother. One on her great joys in life is reading romance novels (Most people find it amusing that she is the one who got me hooked on them when I was a teenager!). As part of the surprise for her big 85th Birthday celebration I am writing to several of her favorite authors. If you have time in your schedule, would you consider sending an email or letter to her wishing her a happy 85th birthday for us to include in her scrapbook? It would make her day! I'll include a little info about her below if you would like to help. If you do not have the time, I would like to thank you for taking the time to read my letter. Tricia Cosgrove If you have time, you can send the email to me at this address or forward a letter c/o Tricia Cosgrove 1665 Brownstone Blvd #2 , Toledo, Ohio 43614. Some tidbits about my grandma: - Name: Anna Harvat - Home: Akron, Ohio (Born and raised) - My grandpa, Joe, passed away in 1991. They were married 51 years. She says the only other man she has ever considered are the ones in the pages of her romance books (or perhaps John Wayne ;-) - She has 5 kids - She has 9 grandkids --- Ages 16 to 31 --- only one is married and she's beginnig to get antsy about seeing us all settled. She's taken to praying to St. Jude -- the Saint of Hopeless Cases. -She is a warm amazingly funny woman and most of my friends who meet her describe her as "spunky".

You give your characters awesome believability and a down to earth reality that is addictive. I love Freya. I started collecting books with Georgette Heyer and have added authors to my collection that I think are worth reading again. You are one of those authors. As a "wanna be" writer, I think your style of writing is admirable and, at the risk of sounding like a groupie, I hope I can someday write something as well as you do. Thank you for the entertainment.

Just a note to let you know how much I am enjoying the "Slightly" series. I am REALLY looking forward to Wulfric's story! I do hope he meets with a lady who shakes him right out of his hauteur and gets him laughing his head off, after all, you have always described him as being full of joy as a young lad! One thing I wanted to comment on in addition to the above is that I admire your skill with a love scene. I caught you using the catch-all phrase "he knew just where to touch" (or was it "how"?) once. So many use it and other cliches to death! You don't, usually! Your people are so clearly defined as PEOPLE who live and have being and you have them behaving in their own special personas even in the bedroom, and, dear lady, I LIKE THAT!!! It is wonderful to read passages that come right out of the author's persona instead of some kind of encyclopedia of "love scene phrases" or some such! My best to you always. Anne

I have a few things to say. First, You, very generously, bought Tea for a tour group I was with, in Bath, in Oct.`03. I want to thank you for that. It was lovely and I quite enjoyed meeting you and your mother. You're, both, quite remarkable women. (On the off chance that you may be able to remember me out of the more than two dozen women that you met that day, I'm 48 yrs. old, 5ft. tall with long red and white hair,60 extra lbs. and enough freckles for three people. Also, I arrived late and was over the moon, because the docent at the Jane Austen Museum had allowed me to some "hands- on" time with the costumes on display. Oh, and I got to share a table with your mother.) Next, I checked your website, looking for your itenerary for the coming year, (in the hopes that our paths might cross and you could sign the book I forgot to bring on the tour)but there was no info on book signings, etc. Could you let me know where to find that sort of thing? Also, I was wondering if you had ever considered getting Signet to republish your older books, especially, the regencies. I would dearly love to have copies of all your stories, but the cost of used copies of your books is prohibitive. I don't know if you've ever checked it out, but if someone is going to make that large a profit on your work, it seems to me, that it ought to be you. Well, that's enough for now. I love your work and I hope it brings you as much pleasure as it brings me. Take care-Beth

Dear Ms. Balogh, I have recently finished reading "Slightly Scandalous," Freyja's story, which is the first book that I've ready written by you. My friend, Tracy, who is a huge fan of yours, recommended it to me when I complained to her that so many heroines in novels are insipid, simpering, swooning shadows. She laughed and lent me Slightly Scandalous and told me that I would find nothing of that in this book's heroine. And she was right. I absolutely loved it. I loved and admired Freyja's courage, feistiness, and her independent character. She was a heroine after my own heart. I cannot wait to read the rest of the Bedwyn series, including A Summer to Remember, though I believe that there is a part in that book were Lady Freyja is given a "set dow="#ccffff" COLSPAN=2>Wrote...
Dear Ms. Balogh, I happened to come across your "slightly" series while i was a member of Rhapsody book club. I am so thankful i did. It has been a joy to add your books to my own little library.

I love your series about the Bedwyns and I must admit from the first I have been fascinated by Wulfric. I am glad you are writing about him and that he will finally find love. Better you than me because I have not been able to choose what type of mate he should have. Should she be young and innocent and in trouble and he would be loving and protective (I know he can do it), or should she be older and feisty and he would be outraged and amused and finally captivated? I can see him falling in love with both types of woman, so I am glad he is telling you the kind of person he wants to spend the rest of his life with. I can't wait to read his story! Between you and Christine Feehan's Dark series, I am wishing the months away until the next book comes out. Thanks for the great stories!!

I have just finished Slightly Tempted and really enjoyed that one as well ... although I have to say that it was a BIT lacking in suspense over Alleyne's death since I knew the whole time that the next book will be entirely devoted to him!

Hi first i want to state how very much i do like your books and not to pat myself on the back but i feel that is alot coming from me as i have read many romances and have been in bookstores working for 10 years and i feel most books are good but few make the great mark i am so looking forward to the character that i feel needed a story more then the rest and that was wulf. i will be on pins for a while till that book comes out i cant wait to meet the woman that is strong enough to maybe put this man in his place thank you so much for many enjoyable hours of your books they will go on my keeper shelf with krentz, garwood, and coutler thanks again Melissa

Dear Ms Balogh, The first book that I read of yours was "More than a mistress". I fell in love! You write beautiful stories and I'd like to thank you for giving me some very entertaining moments. In South Africa, we have to wait sometimes for our favorite author's books to get here and so I can only buy your books a couple of months after the release. At the moment I am looking for SLIGHTLY TEMPTED. I have read the three previous books. The Bedwyn's are GREAT! I can't wait for Wulfric's story. Congrat's on having it come out in hardcover. Unfortunely, I will have to wait for the paperback's release because Hardcover's are too expensive here. Could you tell me when that will be? To tell the truth, when I read the first book in the Bedwyn series, I didn't think that Wulfric could ever find Love! Then I visited you website and saw that you were going to write his story. I was so excited that I nearly danced a jig. I have just moved to Pretoria because I got a job here. I am alone. My family is in Durban, Kwa-zulu Natal. Your books help to keep the loneliness away. Thank You. Rika

Mary, I'm sure that you must receive a lot of messages from readers who tell you that they love your novels and I am happy to be amongst them. I go to the gym to work out everyday and instead of the usual entertainment of watching people admire themselves, I love to read your books. Between work and school,this is the only time that I have to do what I enjoy, reading. I would love to see the Bedwyns in their childhood or maybe how their parents met and married which, I am sure you may have though about writing or perhaps other devoted readers have inquired about. So just to let you know, you have another reader who would love to see the beggings to The Bedwyn family tree. I'm currently reading SLIGHTLY TEMPTED I am enjoying myself very much. I have already read the other three in the series and A SUMMER TO REMEMBER but for some reason, I think my ultimate favorite is CHRISTMAS BEAU. I think the reason why I love to read your books is because you create most of your female characters as strong independent women and the men are meant to realize how important these women are to them. I look forward to your future sucess and I anticipate your new creations especially, Wulfrics story. Have a nice day...Ciao, A.D. Foster

I stopped reading romances in the seventies. I found them less than compelling. I recently found out that the genre has changed dramatically and I now read my mysteries and thrillers and Oprah selections along with romance. As a result I ran across your books. The first one I read was "More than a Mistress". I really enjoyed the way this story developed. And so I looked for your other books and inevitably come across the Bedwyn series. I have enjoyed each one very much and can't wait to read the last two and in particular Wulfric's story. I know I am not alone in my interest. I have never felt the need to write to an author personally but couldn't resist writing and thanking a fellow Canadian. L M Magee

Dear Ms. Balogh, I just finished SLIGHTLY TEMPTED. I have read your entire Bedwyn series to date, and absolutely loved them all equally, for different reasons. Morgan's story stands out because it moved me the most. What a tear-jerker! Although I was and am aware that Alleyne did not, in fact, die, I cried with Morgan when she believed him dead, and I wept even harder with Aidan's tears, and was actually sobbing by the time Morgan walked in on Wulfric's private grief. I have been reading romances for so long, it is a rare story that can elicit laughter or tears, so I just wanted to write you a personal note to let you know that it is a beautiful story and exceptionally well-written. You are a true master of your craft. I am waiting on pins and needles to cry happy tears with Alleyne's safe return to his family in either his story or Wulf's. :-) You may find my review of SLIGHTLY TEMPTED at www.escapetoromance.com.

Having read both the book and the epilogue on your web for MORE THAN A MISTRESS, I hope should there be a reprint that you will push for the epilogue to be included. It is a completion to Page 320 when Jocelyn reads Acton Park factual report from his steward and he realises that he wants to return "to see the house again with adult eyes, to roam the park and the wooded hills...." and that "He wanted to go there with Jane". Jocelyn repeats these sentiments during his final proposal of marriage. Your story needs the epilogue for conclusion. Thank you for making it available on your web pages. The copy of the book I have read is from the library. Should I find a copy to purchase I will print and include your epilogue with it!! The main characters in this book are most likeable and you surely do tell a good story. Congratulations on the numbers of books and the quality you turn out with your creative writing skills.

Mary, I have just finished reading "Slightly Tempted" and I must say that I enjoyed it immensly. I felt that in some ways I could identify with Morgan at that age. Life is still new and fascinating after being sheltered for so long, but it is also fragile and very short. Growing up, people expected me to think I knew everything and act with the careless arrogance of youth, but that was not who I really was. There are mature "children" out there, much to the disbelief of some adults who can only remember how silly they were then. Thank you for making Morgan into a character that fit so well with the rest of her headstrong family. She could not have survived with them otherwise.You also managed to give us another glimpse into Wulf's possible humanity. I can't wait to meet the woman who finally gives him life! I have so enjoyed having his character slowly revealed through each of his siblings' stories. It's like a very intriguing puzzle and you've only given us a few pieces at a time. I'm waiting for the rest of it to be put together finally, along with everyone else it would seem! The only books I have read so far of yours have been the Bedwyn books (although I still haven't read Aidan's story), and I love it that you don't have evil villains lurking around every corner waiting to do the main characters harm. I love how you have them fighting emotions they can't help but feel. I realize that lies and such can be just as separating as murderous villians, but at least it is not as irreversible as possible death. Now I will have to bide my time until Alleyne's story unfolds by reading some of your other works. I am certain I shall enjoy them as much as I have the others-especially after reading what others have had to say! I am a sucker for a series so if you can prolong the Bedwyn's or add to them, I would be very grateful. Here's an idea- do a family like my grandmother's! She is the baby of 15 (although she says 12 because one died at birth & 2 others died at age 6- I don't know the cause). That would keep things going for a while! Thank you so much for the escape your books give me & millions of others. Keep writing & I'll keep reading. Your books are the only ones I have not shared with my sister-in-law because she never manages to return my books. These are too good to never get back. She'll just have to get her own!

Hi Mary: I have read your books for many many years. You are a very gifted writer and some of your dialogues leave me in stitches. Some of your books I haven't liked bc I like a very traditional storyline and don't tend to like flawed heroines. Viola in No Man's Mistress irritated me beyond belief! But I loved Tresham in the prequel. No character have you developed as well as Wulfric. I think he is amazing and I'll be hard-pressed finding a male character as fascinating as him .. ever. I hope you find him a beautiful, entrancing lady who can live up to him! I can't wait to read that story. Thanks for the books. It's a great form of escapism from the realities around us. I'm so glad you haven't gone into contemporary novels like so many other regency writers. Who wants to read about the modern world? 200 years ago is much more interesting!

Darn it, Mary! I am moving. I was cleaning off my bookshelves. Keepers to this side, all others in the box. You know the routine. Then Slightly Married was in my hands. I had just read Morgan's story a few days before. I thought... I need to reread these. So instead of packing or cleaning or reducing... I've been rereading. LOL! So you are a menace, Mary Balogh! A good menace, but a menace nonetheless. I am anticipating Allyene's story (whose always wanted someone to love him for who he is and not his connections or money) and then Wulf. Can't wait to see who makes Wulf fall. Thank you for the Bedwyn's!

Hello Ms Balogh, As I promised, I've finally managed to acquire through theft and desception if necessary, just kidding, all of your books including your short stories. I've read everything from 'A Trysting Place' to 'Slightly Tempted' and all I have to say is...Is that all there is? I can't possibly go without you humor and language for months before 'Slighty Sinful' and 'Slightly Dangerous' appear. I truly enjoy your later books because they are more in depth and longer. That might seem funny but I do hate when your books end. But, I also love your earlier books even if they are lighter reading. It's your language structure and the humor that shines through for me. I'd like you to do all the books you suggest in your newletter but they must come out faster. For now, I think I'll start over from the beginning reading all your books paying close attention to logical order. Thanks so much for what you do...but could you do it faster? Best regards, GCG

I have NEVER written to an author in my whole life but I was so impressed by your books that I just felt that I should say a big well done to you. I bought the Slightly series when I went to New York to visit with my sister. She'd gone with me to a Barnes and Noble in Jersey and was totally irritated with me after driving me around all day. I just wanted to buy one book and I promised that I'd be 5 minutes. You were the first author I saw in the romance section so I thought to my self "I'll just get this one then, it'll have to do" I got to the check out and a friendly employee suggested I buy the other books in the trilogy. I didn't know there was one! He then ran around and got the other 2 books for me while my sister was still glaring!! When I'd read the first book, I went out the very next day and bought all your earlier books! Needless to say, my luggage was very heavy on my trip back to the U.K. I can't wait to read the rest of the books in the Slightly series and any other books that you'll write. Once again, thank you and well done. P.S. I think the Governess series is a fantastic idea!!

I have to admit to an affinity for Aidan, so far my favorite of the Bedwyn brood, but have loved all of the books. And I cried with the family when they learned of Alleyne's 'death' at Waterloo (even though I knew he was alive!) While looking forward to Slightly Sinful, it is Wulf's story that has me waiting with baited breath - he may just come out as an all-time favorite hero; he certainly has the potential. Thanks for creating such lovely books; I'm always disappointed when I finish them! Lee

I just finished Slightly Tempted and enjoyed it so much. I will admit I was not sure if I would like Gervase at first. Of course, I suspect the "lone figure" awaiting Gervase and Morgan after their wedding is, in fact, Allyne (at least I hope so!). I look forward to the next installments. I just know that Wulf's story will be a corker!

I just wanted to let you know how happy I am to know that Slightly Tempted is finally out and will be getting it this week. I first picked up Slightly Wicked..who can resist a title like that, but discovered the other two books in the series (Tempted & Scandalous)so I waited until I had them reading.I can't wait to read Wulfric's book..but I hope that he's not too old when it finally comes out...(SMILES) Keep up the good writing..Thanks

I thoroughly enjoyed your books- I bought Morgan Bedwyns story ,and immediately afterwards hunted down Aidan's and Ranuulf's. Imagine,I am speaking of your characters as if they are real. Your books are by far the best I have read in ages, and I read a lot. Your heroines in the men's stories somehow always remind me of Jane Eyre , a fav character of mine. Good luck and I can't wait for Wulfric's story !

Greetings, Mary Balogh! I am one more who went from Jane Austen to Georgette Heyer to Regencies. (There could probably be a "con"for only those who followed this path.) I found your novels because of two short stories: "Precious Rogue," and "The Bond Street Carolers," which I liked so much that I had to read more by the same author. I'll buy, and read, every Balogh book I find that is "new" for me. Right now, I am going to go through Jane's books again, and then look forward to some more new reading. Bonne continuation! Susan

Mary - Usually I don't read historicals, but after attending the workshop you gave for the Washington Romance Writers, I decided to try "Slightly Tempted" - and all I can say is, WOW!!! You totally blew me away. I've reread several parts more than once, especially the final scene at the grotto where Morgan forgives Gervase. What powerful writing! Gervase's second proposal couldn't have been more perfect. Although I find it hard to believe even a Bedwyn could be that mature at 18, Morgan is such a WONDERFUL heroine that I wouldn't want to change a thing about her. I almost don't want to read any of the other "Slightlys" for fear they can't possibly be as wonderful as "Slightly Tempted." But of course I have to, because I can't wait to see Morgan's reaction to Alleyne's return from the dead on what was already the happiest day of her life. And I have to see how Christine manages to get past the defenses of a man so closed off, even his sister believed he was incapable of human feelings like love, anger and lonliness. I find it interesting that both the sisters married men from their own social class, while all the bothers, judging by the excerpts from the last two books, will have married "down." I suppose women in that period had to marry social equals to avoid losing their status in society, while men had more leeway. Sorry for rambling on so long, but this book really fired up my imagination!

I am re-reading the last few chapters this morning as I was a little fuzzy by the time I finished last night and I want to make sure I comprehended the ending well. I assume it is Alleyne standing at Brewcastle's door. I can't wait to read his book but the one I am most anxious to read is Wulfric's. I can't imagine the type of young woman who gets past his defenses! It should be a very interesting read! Thanks again for the delightful stories and I look forward to the final two books!!

I can tell you did some research because you even got the weather situation correct. I'm so glad that you wrote Morgan as someone who was more direct with her feelings. Looking forward to the final Alleyne and Wulf. P.S. - I was not really worried about Alleyne because I figured that you cannot kill him off before his book comes out. Just the same, I am curious as to what happened to him. Thanks again. P.S.S. - Where the hell are all the men who adore your writing? Oh well, I am secure in my masculinity to truly appreciate your wonderful books. Kepp up the great work!!

Dear Mary -- I stumbled across 'More Than A Mistress' in the library this summer, and am I ever glad I did. Yours are the best romance novels I've ever read. Like every one else in this guest book I can hardly wait for Alleyne's story and *especially* Wulfric's story. I was just wondering if you plan on writing the story of how Jocelyn and Ferdinand's sister met her husband. And if you are going to write a story about Gwendoline, Lady Muir. I get the feeling that there's more to her first marriage than meets the eye, and that maybe her husband's death wasn't an accident. It'd be nice if she found true love in a second marriage. Ciao!

I found Slightly Tempted to be a very beleivable story of two spirits who found each other. It reminds me of my happy relationship with my husband. The friendship and total honesty came first and created an unshakable foundation for love and life. From one who also said she would never get married and was so very independent, that is quite the trick. Some men have the ability to get past the junk and see the real woman. I'm dieing to know what kind of woman can get past Wulf facade to the real man. Waiting with eager anticipation, CJ

Somehow this makes them seem more real and the connection is even stronger. I've been reading the "Slightly" books in order and will even have time to squeeze in the earlier books before the newest ones appear on the bookstands.

With all that is out there, rarely can you find work that is of the quality that you've written for your readers. While I may not care for each and every moment in some of your stories, more often than not I am fascinated with depth and quality of what is on the page! In general when I read books, I typically plunge through just to get to the end, not necessarily paying attention to where the characters are and what they are saying. I like to think of it as "surface-reading" - read just to finish. With all of your books, your words force me to live through the characters and "be" in the moment and my reading experience is much more meaningful! Finding and reading all of your work has become a goal for this thirty-something mom! I dance in anticipation for each and every release date. I've sifted through most of my local used book shops and regularly check to see if past titles are available and every so often I'll be lucky enough to find that jem that I haven't yet read. Indiscreet, A Summer to Remember, and Silent Melody are among my favorites with AStR taking top honors - my heart screams for Lauren and I'm in love with Kit! Heartless and No Man's Mistress both have a special place in my heart. Everyone in the Slightly series is considered family and I can't wait to read what you have in store for Wulfric. I'm certain that the ride will be a thrill! I'm partway through Tempted and I must say that I'm not a fan of the 18 year old heroine novel. After hearing the summary, I definitely had my doubts. Maturity is always a major factor... Let's just say that I take back my apprehension and forgave you after Chapter 2. Morgan is fast becoming a favorite for me! Thank you so much for making my reading worth every minute and hour. It's been absolutely breathtaking!

Congratulations on another beautifully successful book - Slightly Tempted. I am always so charmed and delighted when I read one of your stories. Your characterizations are so rich, so stunning. Only you could manage to make the Bedwyn's from "Summer to Remember" so delightful now, afer making you despise them earlier. I find that when I'm looking around for something to read, and I have nothing new - I always gravitate towards a Mary Balogh book, because the emotions are so real, so heartfelt. Thank you for continuing to amaze your followers.

I read Slightly Tempted yesterday. I have read many thousands of books in my life, and this is one of the best. I pressed another copy on a woman at the grocery store today as she was looking at other, and in my view, inferior titles. This is certainly the best use of the Duchess of Richmond's ball, surpassing even Byron and Thackery, as the characters and their expressed views ring so true. The two main characters are very likable and complex and are interested in each other's complexity. The early hints of the back story of Gervase and Wulf develops so slowly and well. Add in the mystery of what has happened to Alleyne, with the hope held out at the end. (And fortunately knowing that his story is next.) But above all it is Morgan's thoughts on war and the attitudes of the British officers that make this a great book. This exploration also make it a brave book in these times. The British officers so sure that the French would not possibly rise up to join Napoleon, assuming that everyone in the world, including the French, must share their assessment so aptly displays the blindness that continues to lead to tragedy. Many Thanks Judith Anderson

Dear Ms. Balogh: My friend and I have recently read your Bedwyn series books and we loved them. We can't wait for Wulf's story. This character you have created seems to have such depth. We were debating on whether you were going to create a mate for him, just as high in the in step as he is. We thought that kind of character would really throw him. Imagine someone actually more haughty than Wulf? We thought that would be hysterical. It didn't seem likely he would marry someone in the same vein as the characters created for his "brothers." And we really hope it's not that mistress you keep hinting at. Anyway can't wait to see what comes next for these wonderful characters you've created. You know you've done a good job, when your fans talk about your characters as if they're real people. Good Luck with your writing. We love it.

Ms. Balogh... what can I say? I was never much of a romance reader, but when I walked past the shelf and saw the cover of Slightly Wicked, I had to stop. I love the simplicity of the covers... it leaves the imagination to decide how the characters look. Once I read Ralf's story, I was addicted. I must say that Aidan's story touched my heart. There are two lines I always remember, but I won't spoil it for those who haven't read it yet. Joshua reminds me of myself at times. I simply LOVE his character. I am not sure if I can wait for Wulf's story; however, I will be very sad when the series is over. I wish there could be updates for all these characters that I have come to admire. Thank you for stories that I can read and re-read a million times!

Ms. Balogh, A few months ago, you were kind enough to reply to a message that I left in your guest book. In it, you pondered about your reader's differing tastes because most people seemed to like Freyja's story the best while I didn't. After chatting with other readers and reading a few reviews that bashed 'Slightly Wicked' (which happens to be my favorite) I realized that some characters just touch a part within ourselves that makes us understand why they make certain choices and why they feel a certain way. That happened to me with Judith (although I would like to think of myself as more assertive). While others thought the story was contrived or maudlin, for me it flowed naturally and seemlessly, as if it was meant to be exactly that way. I recognized then that your mastery consists in developing characters that touch something within each reader : that individual conection that reaches the reader and transports the character to the realm of reality. Then the characters become real in a way that delight us and sometimes even anger us. Judith and Ferdinand did that for me and I imagine that Freyja did it for others. Keep up the good work!

Mary, I'm also an expatriate in Canada (but for much less long than you) although my native country is France (hence the e-mail address). Anyway, I wanted to tell you that I am a devoted fan of yours and have been for a few years. I can't remember which book I read first (One night for love?) but the trilogy that made me fall in love with your work was Indiscreet/Unforgiven/Irresistible; and with No Man's Mistress, you touched my heart. I LOVE your female characters and I have a very deep affection for your 'normal' heroines - Jane, Sophia, Eve, Lauren, Elizabeth (even if she's a 'second role'). They are strong, unusual, deep and so lovable. As for your male characters, well, they suit their heroines! :-) I think No Man's Mistress remains my favourite but there are so many so close seconds that I can safely say that you're my favourite Regency Novel writer. I also enjoy reading what happens before or after to the side characters and your working in serie makes your books even more agreeable to me. I recently started to read your earlier novels and I find it somewhat amazing to see how you've been at this high level of writing (in my opinion) for so long! I can't wait to read the new Slightly (although it's Wulfric's story that makes me the more impatient). Thank you for writing, why do your books come out in Canada a few days after they do in the States? It's unfair... Regards, Sylvie.

I haven't had a chance to get Slightly Tempted yet, but I'm on my way to store tomorrow. Anyway, the main reason I am writing is that she told me that Wulf's book will be a hardback, instead of paperback. I'm not a happy camper about that. I love your books, but I can't really afford to pay hardback prices. So here I am whining about it. Hope that this will not be a trend. A faithful reader, Jan

I just wanted to send a note to thank you for your wonderful books. I am an atty and have read them for many years for fun. Last year, I introduced my 79 year old mother to the Bedwyn series. She is a retired RN and has taken up reading as a hobby since my father passed away. She loved Slightly Married and has reread it several times along with a number of your other books (I thought romances might be too racy for her but apparently not!). We are very close, and have had great fun speculating about the plot lines. She even thought Eve would be a good candidate for Wulfric until I explained that the romance genre does not usually work that way. We had a great holiday with Under the Mistletoe, and Slightly Tempted. We are eagerly anticipating the last two Bedwyn books as well as the Governess series. Thank you again for many happy hours of reading pleasure for both of us!

Dear Mary, I put the kids to bed, finished up some chores and finally snuggled in the couch with a cup of tea and Slightly Tempted. I finished at 5AM. Amazing how time flies with a good book. I loved Gervase and his laced french..."cherie." The book lost a bit of its impact for me though because I knew Alleyne wasn't really dead. When I read the preview for Alleyne's story I thought how clever...He was the injured man the lady was yelling help for (as her husband. Sounds really interesting and I hate to have to wait till May. You spoiled me back with a new book each month last summer. AND The preview for Wulfric! I laughed out loud at the part with the lemonade! That book is sure to be the best. What happens in July? Is there a new family you will introduce us too?

Total genius -- I just devoured Slightly Tempted in one day, begging my husband to watch the baby, make dinner, and generally do anything and everything possible to give me extra moments to read. The whole Bedwyn saga has got me completely wrapped up...I simply can't bear to wait for the last two books. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to pass the time re-reading some of my favorite Balogh books.

Dear Mary, Please tell me your next books offer a more mature heroine matched with the hero. It's very depressing to see 18-year-olds being described as so much more mature than they are (even then I doubt that 18 year-old girls would have much in common w/older and wiser women and men-late 20's/30's) You've neglected all those interesting, and just as beautiful spinsters. Maybe the next two brothers will be more interested in them??!!
