    A solid book. It was well written and therefore a very fast read

    A solid book. It was well written and therefore a very fast read. I liked how it started, with the opening overlapping with the timeline of the first book, A Little Bit Wicked. With the overlap, this book can stand alone even though it is the second book of the series; however, I believe it makes for a richer story if they are read in order. Robyn DeHart created full well rounded characters. I enjoyed Justin the most though. I had a harder time relating to Clarissa but attributed that to her character's youth. Overall, it was a solid story.

    A fast, sexy and seductive read!

    A Little Bit Sinful is the second book in Robyn DeHart's Forbidden Love series. I would not usually read a series out of order, but I received an early copy of this book. It certainly reads well as a stand alone novel, but I will surely be reading A Little Bit Wicked, the first book in the series.

    DeHart presents us with seduction, scandal, romance, desire and passion. It is a fast read with characters that you are sure to fall in love with. Justin Rodale is strong, passionate and a true gentelman even if he is the bastard son of a Duke. Clarissa Kincaid is a proper, intelligent, sneaky, determined young lady of the ton. The sexual tension and chemistry of these two had me staying up much later than I should as I could not wait to read more!

    A little bit sinful is full of genuine charm, emotion, and plot

    A little bit sinful is full of genuine charm, emotion, and plot twists. Clarissa Kincaid is the heroine of this novel. She is bright, adventurous, and determined to marry George Wilbanks. She turns to Justin Rodale to help her with financial affairs and affairs of the heart. Justin is a friend of Clarissa's brother, Marcus. Justin finds himself strongly attracted to Clarissa and while Clarissa shares the attraction she is determined to wed George.




    At the point where Clarissa knows George's kisses do not make her feel the same way that Justin's kisses make her feel I thought she would come to her senses and pursue Justin. However, Clarissa has the voice of society and family in her head telling her who would make a good match for her and Justin's name is not included on the list. Clarissa previously made a mistake and chose the wrong suitor and so she is afraid that she is unable to make good choices and even at the risk of making a fool of herself she follows others' advice. This was a historical romance but being that I am a Southern girl this theme of following the dictates of society and marrying who you are 'supposed' to marry without real regard to love resonates with me. Clarissa employs some extreme methods to get her man in the face of all out opposition. Poor Justin defends her at every opportunity while pining for her to return his feelings and just when things seem as if they can get no worse Justin steps in to save the day.




    Justin is in the top 5 on my book husband/boyfriend list. He is honorable, longsuffering, heroic, handsome, a considerate lover, and he is honest. He genuinely wants only the best for Clarissa and will stop at nothing to help her with all of her shenanigans. I absolutely adored him. I loved Clarissa's character because she really was clueless and innocent. She couldn't seem to help but get herself into sticky situations, but she never backed down from a challenge. This kept her character from being overwhelmingly annoying. This was a sweet, spicy read with memorable characters and interesting plot twists.

    A Little Bit Sinful is the first book that I read written by Rob

    A Little Bit Sinful is the first book that I read written by Robyn Dehart and it turned out to be a refreshing read to me as well.  This is also the second book in the series and I think it did well as a stand alone, seeing as I had not read the first book yet.

    This story centers on Clarissa trying to steer her "perfect match" George, into proposing marriage to her.  Unfortunately, it has taken him quite a while to propose and Clarissa is getting antsy.  Enter Justin Rodale, a bastard son of the Duke of Chanceworth and her brother's best friend.  She propositions him to teach her how to be attractive to George.  Little does she know that Justin has other things in mind.

    I related well to Justin and I thought that he was just the right kind of bad boy.  Being a bastard meant he is able to do anything he pleases and dabble with business and work.  I liked how she was portrayed as a strong and honorable character, fit for any society miss.

    I did have problems with Clarissa.  I thought that she was being a bit naive and too caught up in her own world to really see what she was in front of her.  I could not understand why she was so fixated about George.  *sigh

    I did give this book three hearts only because it took me a while to warm up to Clarissa even though I fell in love with Justin.  I also thought that there was not so much sinfulness going on in the book which kind of disappointed me since I was expecting more.

    I Also Recommend:

    We start out with a prologue that takes place before book one, A

    We start out with a prologue that takes place before book one, A Little Bit Wicked. The first chapter then takes place after book one, so it did take me a little while to realize that Clarissa’s brother, Marcus, had come back. Besides that little confusion, nothing else lets you know that this book is part of a series—it can be read as a standalone.

    Clarissa, taking the advice of her dead sister-in-law, Rebeccca, had her eyes set on George. As readers, we knew George wasn’t right for her. Actually, everyone around her, even her best friend Ella, knew he wasn’t right for her. But the stubborn Clarissa insisted that he was for her. They “fit,” as she put it. Oh, how that made me want to slap her and make her realize that she was being idiotic.

    Justin… oh, Justin. I fell in love with this man. He was so sweet, so protective, so patient. And yet, so very vulnerable. He never thought he was worth it—that he was the best thing for Clarissa. Of course, he didn’t want George for her either since he actually knew what he was like.

    There were a few things that stroke me rather odd. Clarissa has striven all of her life to be prim and proper, following what Rebecca had told her. But one touch from Justin has her unleashing all of her passions. I understand that Clarissa is a passionate person (albeit slightly idiotic—seriously, I almost pulled my hair out with her stubbornness), but wouldn’t she have a little more restraint since she was—throughout her life—struggling to be prim and proper; the pinnacle of society? However, I did like how she was always attracted to Justin and how she fervently denied it all the while not truly convincing herself.

    Clarissa wasn’t my favorite character. She was hard-headed to the point of idiocy and she was judgmental. But she was sweet and had her heart in the right place. And she was good for Justin, and he was good for her.

    The secondary characters, Roe and Ella, were amusing as well as almost always right. Roe gave Justin really good advice (although he ignored him) and Ella such fun to read. I really hope these two characters get their happy ending too!

    The story is a sweet one. I loved seeing both characters fall in love with each other while they were both convinced that they shouldn’t end up together. Justin and Clarissa fit so perfectly together, and reading their story was so much fun. I really recommend this book for all the romantics out there—it’s a heart-warming story.

    Charming fun read / 4 stars
    I read A Little Bit Sinful written by Robyn DeHart and enjoyed it.
    It's the story of Justin and Clarissa, who were friends since childhood,
    and who meet again. Will sparks flare between the two? Charming story
    filled with emotions, its funny. Loved the Victorian era! I love historical
    romances, specially this one, because Clarissa was a strong minded heroine.
    It's also well written! I won this book and I will watch for her next book!

    *okay but just a one time read

    Entertaining enough. Characters lacked depth and editing was shoddy (too many spelling errors and dialogue could have been tighter). Ending was abrupt and seemed like the author was too close to deadline and wanted to wrap it up, but it felt rushed and clumsy.

    The kiss of death: It took me 4 nights to read because I just didn't care enough about the immature heroine enough to stay awake and read on..

    Mmmm. Sometimes being A Little Bit Sinful is a very, very good t

    Mmmm. Sometimes being A Little Bit Sinful is a very, very good thing. This was my second time reading DeHart and I'm definitely a fan at this point. She writes such entertaining characters that are a little bit scandalous and a little bit, well, sinful. And that are completely charming and absolutely addictive.

    The book centers around Clarissa who is trying to catch a husband--a certain man her deceased sister-in-law told her was perfect for her. But the man is an absolute disgusting lying cheating no good ass. Which she just can't see that despite what everyone tells her. She's GOING to marry this man --she just needs help getting him to see her as a woman. And that's where Justin comes in because she wants Justin to teach her how to be more...worldly.

    As soon as I finished the first book in the series I was already dying for Justin's story. He and Chrissy caused a bit of a scandal which is what brought her brother and his wife together in book one and I was just so intrigued by the man.

    And damn. He so did not disappoint. Justin is Drool. Worthy. Seriously. Seeing he's the bastard son of a Duke he's got a bit of an outcast thing going on with polite society. He owns a gaming hell. Wears his hair a little too long and has a tendency to do as he pleases. And I pretty much loved every second of him. He's tough and honorable and sexy as hell. But he also has some insecurities and anger issues because of his birth and how society sees him (and really how he sees himself) that made him so endearing to me. He's one of those heroes I wanted to do naughty things to but at the same time one I just wanted to wrap in a huge hug and do anything to make him see how worthy he was. Just loved him.

    I loved Chrissy as well but the girl drove me a little mad and made me want to just shake some sense into her now and again. She's also what kept this from being a 5 star read. I totally got where she was coming from and that she was trying to hold on to the last bit of her sister-in-laws advice to keep her close but it got to me a bit after a while.

    I really did enjoy the two of them together though. They've known each other for ages and I always love that shared history and closeness it brings. And I really loved that they cared about each other in their own ways. They weren't always perfect but they did want the other to be happy and I can appreciate that. I did enjoy watching the two feel each other out and eventually start falling in love. There were some oh-so-yummy toe curling kisses along the way but heat wise outside of that it's a little tame for my usual taste.

    All in all I'm really looking forward to what comes next in the series. DeHart has a way with secondary characters and peaking your interest with just a glimpse or two at them. I'm already half in love with Justin's brother Roe and can't wait to hear more about him. If the first two books in the series are any indication it'll be a lovely little read to get lost in for a while.

    **Favorite Quote**
    "You are not concerned about your virtue?" 
    "Are you planning to ravish me?" 
    He gripped her arm, resisting the urge to do precisely that. She would never ask such a question if she had any idea the kinds of thoughts he'd been entertaining since she'd walked into the room. Thoughts of stripping off her lovely clothes and doing sinful things to her body. Of showing her all the sinful things she could to do his. He could take her three different ways on the rug alone. "Only if you want me to."

    A LITTLE BIT SINFUL by Robyn DeHart is an exciting Regency Histo

    A LITTLE BIT SINFUL by Robyn DeHart is an exciting Regency Historical Romance set in 1875 London. #2 in the "Forbidden Love" series,but can be read as a stand alone. For a romp through London's ballrooms "A Little Bit Sinful" is a great choice. The characters are engaging with just the right amount of passion and a bit of sinful behavior. A touch of danger toward the end. I hope we will soon get to see Justin Rodale,the Duke of Chanceworth find his real mother,he is so very close. Clarissa Kincaid has finally found herself. With a bit of seduction from Justin of course! A fun read! I would highly recommend "A Little Bit Sinful" for your reading pleasure,you will not regret reading this fast paced story of love,and forgiveness. Received for an honest review from the publisher.
