    A Little Bit Scandalous is the third book of the Forbidden Love

    A Little Bit Scandalous is the third book of the Forbidden Love series. I have read all of the series up to this point but believe this book can be read on its own and the reader will not be lost. That being said however, one of the things I really enjoy about this series to date is that ancillary characters that are depicted in one book then become the main characters in the next book; almost like a vinette. For example, book 2 started up towards what is the end of the first book but from the view point of Clarissa and Justin who we got to know a little in the first book. A Little Bit Scandalous does the same, picking up the story with Monroe (Roe) and Caroline.

    All of these stories are a light but not fivoulous love story that invloves mystery and danger. Robyn DeHart keeps enough of the historical accuracy to satisfy fans of the time period, but also make some "artistic changes" to keep the story relevant to a modern readership. In this book as well as her others of the series, the heroine is intelligent and indepedent, overall making smart decisions. Roe is sex on legs *yummy*. An aspect specific to this story I found quite appealing was the younger "innocent" female seducing the slightly older worldly male. Solid story and great series.

    A Little Bit Scandalous is story about the gamble of love and ho

    A Little Bit Scandalous is story about the gamble of love and how high the stakes are to win the one you love. Caroline has been in love with Roe for as long as she can remember, but he does not notice her. When she is caught in disguise he is furious and intrigued at the same time. Roe would have to be a simpleton not to notice and appreciate Caroline’s beauty, but Roe is not worthy of her and the more he can push her away, the better off she will be.

    The intensity between Caroline and Roe is just delicious in this story. They are so perfect for each other, but Roe is determined to save Caroline from his scandalous ways. Caroline is up to the challenge and in this game she is playing for keeps.

    The seduction, romance, and thrill of the game make this story a must read that will win you over and leave you asking for more!

    I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    When Caroline Jellico puts her heart on the line and suggests to

    When Caroline Jellico puts her heart on the line and suggests to her guardian, Monroe Grisham, that he marry her, only to be turned down, she decides to take her future into her own hands, literally. She turns to the one thing she’s good at, cards. By dressing up as a boy and playing cards, she earns a large sum of money, money that she is convinced will help her live an independent life, a life where she will be financially free from Roe. But when Roe decides to play “the boy” in a game of cards, he learns that he’s not playing a boy, but rather a woman. A seductive woman. When Roe reveals to Caroline that he recognizes her, a different kind of game begins. A game where hearts and emotions are on the line.

    Set in 1869 England, this novel was a fabulous, fast paced, read by Robyn Dehart. I loved everything about this novel, from the well-developed characters, fast paced plot, and romance to a bit of mystery, deceit and suspense. Caroline and Roe’s relationship was a great “second chance at love” story and was very entertaining. I especially enjoyed the meddling family members who are secretly pushing Caroline and Roe together, all the while, helping them find themselves as well. Overall, a great story that I would recommend to anyone who loves historical fiction, set in the Regency Era. This book was received from the publisher for the purposes of an honest review.

    The heroine Caroline Jellico becomes the ward of the hero, the D

    The heroine Caroline Jellico becomes the ward of the hero, the Duke of Chanceworth (Roe) at 15 when her brother dies from cholera when the 2 men are in Persia looking for a precious artefact. Roe is guilt stricken over his best friend’s death. He was saved by his father who brought him back home; but who refused to do the same for Christopher, Caroline’s brother who was merely a baron’s son. 
    The ward & guardian trope is nicely done; Caroline falls in love with Roe quite early on & tells him of her love & suggests they marry instead of her having a Season. When he turns her down, she continues to London with Roe’s mother & is introduced to Society but declares herself done after 2 wks & returns to the country. Even then, Roe is already attracted to Caroline but refuses to acknowledge his feelings since she’s his ward.
    I like both Caroline’s & Roe’s characters & they had wonderful chemistry. Caroline is intelligent. Roe teaches her cards when she became his ward & she becomes a master at it by counting the cards & calculating the probabilities of what card will turn up (I can’t imagine being able to do that mentally!). She’s determined to be independent & stay unmarried since Roe will not have her. 
    The story reopens 7 years later with Caroline back in London with Roe’s mother & his aunt. She’s come up with a plan to disguise herself as a boy to be able to enter the gambling dens & win enough money to not have to depend on Roe. Her plan is to convert her family’s townhome into a into a boarding house for other orphan girls who were too old to live in asylums. She’s way successful & soon is quite well known as “Grey” the young boy who always wins. Her disguise doesn't last very long with Roe who realizes quite soon when he plays her that Grey is female & later discovers it’s Caroline. 
    I love when he gets protective of Caroline (he gets all worried that someone will see thru her disguise & what would happen then) & jealous when other men notice her beauty (when she's not in disguise of course). He has a chip on his shoulder that he’s not capable of loving Caroline as she deserves to be loved being his father’s son (who never loved or was faithful to his mother) & his 1st failed engagement. 
    I enjoyed the book & would recommend it to those who enjoy a light historical romance read with engaging characters. There were a few typos in the ARC copy that I read but not that numerous that it became irritating.
