    Have you ever read a modern historical novel that was trying to recapture the stilted Regency language used by Jane Austen (but failing) or better yet, that tried to cover badly written soft core porn with a historical shroud but containing many historical inaccuracies? I have, and this book is not one of those drivels. It was awesome, exciting, and fun. I was so glad to have a historical lead female who wasn't silly or insipid. This book caught my attention on the first page. I'm a trained historian with some background of the time period covered in the book, and the minor inaccuacies are not due to lack of research, but more of an author needing to write a historical novel for a contemporary audience -- Robyn DeHart made some artistic licenses primarily with the "liberal" approach of her female character so the modern female reader who doesn't have the historical background could still connect and relate. I loved Marcus and Vivian from the very beginning. They are both likable characters and well-rounded. From the very beginning I was wondering about Frederick and how he would re-appear and he does. The Frederick story is interesting, but is not the main story. The main story is about two people growing together and learning to trust one another. Their story is a sweet story of love not handled in a conventional way from what I've seen in the past for historical novels. I sincerely enjoyed this book and will be anxious to read others by this author.

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

    I tend to think that no matter what era you lived in society stays the same. The virtue of women is held in high esteem. Once said virtue is shall we shall ruined, you aren’t looked at in the same way. It matters not how innocent it may have seemed at the time you are still looked at as a ruined woman. Within the ton in London most proper families saw clear to keeping their daughters out of ruin. But, there is always the risk however innocent in your eyes you make one wrong move and you need someone to help you repair the damage that others think may have incurred. What would you do in this type of situation? That is where Ms. Vivian March comes in.

    Ms. March lived her private scandal, spending the last ten years or so keeping it hidden. She has buried those secrets deep, in hopes that no one would be the wiser. Living the life of a spinster with her spinster aunt she spends her days helping the ton escape scandal thus keeping their own secrets hidden. But, it wasn’t always like that for Vivian. She was once so in love with her then fiancé Fredrick that she gave into the lust of young people in love only to have him leave her so that he could pursue his career in Art. After giving herself to another in the name of love/lust, whichever way you choose to look at it, Vivian is thankful that a child was not the outcome because then she wouldn’t have been able to bury her secret along with the indiscretion.

    As with most secrets they tend to find a way of resurfacing when we least expect them. Ten years ago when Fredrick left her at a party in the moonlight she kissed another thinking he was Fredrick as it was a masked ball. This kiss she shared in the moonlight light was with a man a few years younger than her. Now ten years later that young man enters her life once again. He remembers that shared kiss and the passion. Marcus having spent the last several years as a tour guide in India and Africa has come home to take over as Earl because his older brother is now deceased. His younger sister has recently done something that may jeopardize her reputation. Because of this Vivian is called and thus the meeting between the two. Marcus remembers her right away wanting to pursue her, while she is trying to help his younger sister’s virtue stay in tack. As she works on helping his sister she also decides a wife is in order for Marcus which will help in the long run. Meantime Vivian’s past threatens to ruin her. What is she to do? Can she being, much older and wiser keep things secret still? Or will she have to tell all in order to save everyone?

    I enjoyed all the elements of the story. There was plenty of scandal and secrets to keep me reading and wanting to find out what happens. The unlikely couple (because Vivian is older than Marcus although we aren’t quite sure as the age difference changes from the beginning to the end) shares chemistry, passion and romance from the beginning. I liked the way Marcus knew right away what he wanted and never once gave up on his pursuit of Vivian. Pure romance… Ms. De Hart has written a fast paced, passion filled romance with a love that transcends age. A Little Bit Wicked is the first in a new series written by Ms. De Hart, I for one look forward to the next installment.

    There's nothing I love more than a witty heroine and arrogant hero who just can't help falling for each other despite their best intentions otherwise, and A Little Bit Wicked certainly delivers! Marcus and Vivian are fantastic characters and their story is charming, engaging, and very entertaining. I can't wait to read the rest of the series!

    Review:

    "A Little Bit Wicked: Forbidden Love (Entangled: Scandalous)" by Robyn DeHart was a wonderfully written historical romance novel in 1876 London where women are held in 'high esteem.' "A Little Bit Wicked: Forbidden Love (Entangled: Scandalous)" is this authors first book in historical romance series. You will find from this fun read a lots will be going on such as 'secrets, scandals, blackmail and most of all love.' What will happen when a younger Lord( Marcus Kincaid , the Earl of Ashford) meets an older Lady, Vivian March)and fall in love? What was up with this 'Paragaon to Society' that Vivian was supposed to be? To find out this an a lots more you must pick up this good read "A Little Bit Wicked" to see how this author will present it all to the reader. From 'wickedness, desire, passion and scandal' you will be seating on the edge of your seat just waiting for what will come next. I thought all of the characters were well developed, colorful and very captivating only helping to produce such a well written story. My favorite part of this story was the scene toward the end where Vivian comes clean.

    If you are into historical romances that may be a little wicked I would definitely recommend this series: "A Little Bit Wicked: Forbidden Love (Entangled: Scandalous)) to you as a excellent read.

    "You are a wicked man, Marcus," she murmured.
    "Indeed. Won't you be a little wicked with me?


    "Oh, hell yeah! You are SOOO gonna want to be just a little bit wicked with Marcus. This was my first time reading DeHart and you know, I really enjoyed this one. From the cover, which is gorgeous, to the set up for their relationship, the frustrations along the way and all the yummy, delicious kissing. It was just a wonderful read that really delighted the romance lover in me.


    Yall know I love when authors do sometime just a little different with their characters and Marcus and Vivian were an excellent duo. She's in her mid 30's and actually 7 years older than he is! I love when that happens because it's just so... unexpected.


    Marcus was an incredible hero. I absolutely loved him and seriously felt for the guy. He's been away for a decade and come home to find he's now the head of the family after his brother's passing, his sister has started a scandal and all the women in his life are pretty much intent on driving him mad. Including one Vivian March who has been called in to help the family sweep the brewing scandal under the rug. The ladies really gave him hell on pretty much everything.


    There's an excellent little bit of history between Vivian and Marcus that I really enjoyed and that I thought added a nice touch to the relationship. I loved the banter and zing between them and that there was some heat to their interactions. And there were plenty of interactions as she decides he needs to marry in order to get the gossips' focus off his sister and on to him and sets about doing some matchmaking. He does need a wife after all to provide an heir for the title. A win-win situation, right? I mean if she can convince him that is.  And oh that is not an easy task because once he set his sights on Vivian he wasn't going to be deterred from his goal. .


    As much as I enjoyed Vivian, lordy, I wanted to hurt her when she kept turning Marcus down and brushing off his interest in her. She's hiding a lot of self esteem issues because of something that happened to her in her youth. It was one of those things you can totally get why it would affect her but damn I just wanted her to get over it and jump the man already.


    And on that front, lol, yall know I love a steamy book and I'll say the sex scenes between Vivian and Marcus were nice but damn the kissing was what got me. The kissing was GOOOOD. Like, make you tingle and pant just a bit good. I could have made it through the book with just that and been way more than content.


    Overall, DeHart did an excellent job with A Little Bit Wicked. It's a nicely done romance that's enjoyable and entertaining and left me eager to read more from her. I'm really hoping the secondary characters like his sister and the "gentleman" she caused a scandal with will both pop up later on in the series. Final verdict? Go pick up a copy! You'll love it!

    I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Robin DeHart's A Little Bit Wicked is just that, a little wicked. It's a romantic story, not too long, not too short, that revolves around mistakes, keeping them a secret and finding someone who will accept you even with your past mistakes and flaws.

    Vivian March, otherwise known as The Paragon, is the person families go to when they need help avoiding scandal. For all appearances, Vivian is not the perfect, proper lady every one thinks she is. She's guarding her own secret, a mistake she made when she was young and thought she was in love. Vivian is a character that everyone can identify with. We've all made mistakes, some of them we've tried desperately to cover up. Remember feeling like at any moment someone would discover your secret and tell every one? She's a brave character, most women would have banished themselves to the country but not Vivian, she does the best she can to move on and help others.

    Then there's Marcus Kincaid. He's come home after years in Africa to find out two things: His elder brother has died, making him the Earl of Ashford and his sister is only a few steps away from a full blown scandal and his aunt has asked Vivian March to come to their aid. He has traded one jungle for another and finds himself outnumbered by stubborn females who have apparently, gotten along fine without him and aren't too pleased that he now wants to assume control of the family. As if that's not enough, when he meets Vivian he suddenly remembers her.. She mistakenly kissed him at a masked ball 10 years ago. That she pretends not to remember really aggravates him.

    So at first it's Marcus' male ego that causes him to pursue Vivian but he quickly finds out that she is something special and begins to pursue her because he is genuinely interested in her. The two of them play a bit of a cat and mouse game for awhile that is filled with passionate kisses and whispered promises.

    A Little Bit Wicked is moderately paced, never dwelling on unimportant facts or unnecessary scenes. It was refreshing to read about a heroine who is NOT a young, fresh faced miss but a mature woman of 34. She's somewhat independent, well, as independent as a woman could be in those times, but she's not as tough as she comes across. She lives in fear that her secret will come out and ruin her. Giving Vivian moments of insecurity and fear made her more realistic. She was so consumed with guilt over her youthful mistake that she started imagining that everyone could secretly see her shame. Her fear and guilt made me sympathize with her.

    Marcus and Vivian's romance is not as passionate as it could have been, most times it was overshadowed by Vivian's fear that her secret would be discovered and Marcus would reject her. She always held something of herself back. The result is a handful of encounters that build in intensity but never quite explode into fireworks. A Little Bit Wicked is more about forgiving past mistakes and the emotional connection formed between two characters who don't entirely belong in the world.

    "This book is more than a little bit wicked! It’s a tantalizingly sweet historical romance with characters that will make you swoon. Vivian March met the man she believed to be the love of her life when she was 24 where they shared a passionate kiss at a masquerade. When she discovers that she’s kissed the wrong man, she leaves quickly, ashamed of herself for making a huge mistake. For the next 10 years, she makes a life for herself as “The Paragon,” a woman brought in by families of note to bring their names back to the good graces of high society by correcting incidents of scandal. When she’s called upon by the Kincaid family, led by Marcus the Earl of Ashford, to solve the scandal problem of his sister, Clarissa, Vivian is brought face to face with the man she kissed so many years ago.

    Full of blackmail, scandal, passion and true love, this book is absolutely delightful. The romance that transpires between Vivian and Marcus after 10 years is beautiful and incredibly sweet. The tenacity of Marcus and the vivacious strength of Vivian give this story depth and make it fun to get lost in. Their emotional journey to discover the happily ever after with each other brings a smile to your face and a warmth to your heart.

    If you’re a fan of historical romance, this wicked little treat will definitely satisfy your needs!

    Great Quotes in this book
    All right everyone, for the past few days I have been reading A Little Bit Wicked by Robyn DeHart. I must say that I did enjoyed Ms. DeHart's newest book. So, without further ado I bring you A Little Bit Wicked:




    Vivian was going to meet the love of her life, Frederick Noble, for an secret rendezvous. When she gets to assign destination, she meets up with a guy, who she believes is Frederick and gives a passionate. All the sudden she realize its the wrong guy. OH NO!




    Freaking out, because she kissed the wrong guy decides to head home. Now disaster strikes, Frederick decides to leave for France to learn to become a famous artist. Now her life is ruin and she must pick up the pieces of her life and re-invent herself. Years later she is able to help others out of sticky situation and became dubbed "The Paragon." 




    After all his adventures, Marcus Kincaid is summon home to take his place as Earl of Ashford. Too bad his homecoming could have been a little better if his sister, Clarissa, didn't find herself in a pickle. Now they have called in Vivian March, "The Paragon." However, Marcus knows more about Vivian than what she lets on, after all they did shared a passionate all the those years ago. Can Vivian's past stay in the past or is it going to make an ugly reappearance?




    Overall, I did enjoy the story. I love how Vivian decided to take matters into her own hands. At the same time, she kind of lived in fear to keep her secret hidden. Yet, she somehow manage to survived. I also enjoyed Marcus character and how he was trying to fill his brothers shoes and repair what was going on in the family. However, I kind of wish Frederick played more havoc on Vivian in the story than closer to the end, but that's just me. 




    Not only was the story well written, but it had some memorable quotes that could be applied to life. For instance this would be one of my favorite: "Don't ignore life when it stands at your door and beckons, my sweet girl." Seriously, what an awesome quote. One more before I go: "People act out in certain ways to create a perception in others' minds of how we want to be seen." Which is so true. 




    So, if you are looking for something new to read, you might want to checkout Robyn DeHart's A Little Bit Wicked. I enjoy her writing and you might too. Plus, it has some memorable quotes other than the two I listed. So, I hope you have a wonderful day.
