#60 - Slightly Sinful ~ Mary Balogh
Lord Alleyne Bedwyn (Brother of Wulfic, Duke of Bewcastle) is in the diplomatic service, and takes a message to the Duke of Wellington at Waterloo. Unfortunately, he is hit by a bullet and ends up coming to in a Brussels brothel without a stitcth of clothing to his name, nor a memory of who he is, or what he was doing at the battle.
His rescuer was Rachel York, who ends up at the Brothel after being swindled out of the little money she had by a Clergyman.
She could inherit some family jewels, but in order to do that she needs to marry, so a plan is hatched to pretend to be married to Alleyne (aka Sir Jonathan Smith). Upon their return to England their charade draws them both into danger, scandal and a blossoming relationship that is really slightly sinful.
A 4.5 ***** Star read.
I can't really believe that I've read 60 books since September - actually, it will hopefully be more than that be New Year's Eve as I am reading another of the Slightly series at the moment.
