A Little Bit Sinful is an enjoyable Regency romp. The author did a good job with the characters and emotions. Sebastian's character was well-developed and, while not always likable, his motives and actions were convincing. Eleanor's character felt too modern at times, and the passionate relationship with Sebastian was not altogether convincing, but she was a sympathetic character nonetheless. The climatic conflict of the book was very well done and emotionally moving. The conflict wasn't qui
You know if your regency-set novel opens with men AND women attending a funeral that you're not in for a historically-accurate story. Stylistically not poorly written, but clunky narrative-wise, too much told rather than shown, secrets revealed too early, and too much language and ideology not of the period. Couldn't get past the first 100 pages...

Adrienne Basso is a new author to me only recently with reading "How To Seduce A Sinner" a few days ago and I had to purchase the ebook of "A Little Bit Sinful". Even though the books are stand alone there are connecting characters between stories. ALBS is Sebastian's story, Viscount Benton, who is good friends to Viscount Carter Grayson the H of HTSAS.
I found that the stories of both books I have read this week was *fluff* writing, which I am fine with because I read romances for my entertainm
My review originally posted at Joyfully Reviewed:

After many, many years, Sebastian Dodd, Viscount Benton, finally has the chance to get his revenge on the Earl of Hetfield, the man he holds responsible for his mother’s death. His plan is simple: Sebastian will ruin the earl’s lovely daughter, Bianca, and then meet the earl in a duel. The only problem is, Sebastian can’t bring himself to touch someone as young and innocent as Bianca. However, her older sis

Found this book in the cheap section when perusing e-books and decided it would be perfect fluff romance novel for my cruise. For what I normally read, this book is really more like a LOT of bit sinful. Sex scenes were slow in coming, but very detailed when they arrived.

Typical characteristics of a paperback, beautiful people in historical England with snooty London society, emphasis on appearances and sexy bad boys with a tendency to ignore social morality rules. I liked the reve
CoffeeTimeRomance andMore
Although the tale of rake and dowdy spinster has been told before, Basso brings it to new life with a leading female not afraid to touch when fiery need is kindled by the dashing and rogue lord. Tenderness is captured alongside the needy lust, leaving you really feel a multi-layered connection between these poignant characters. From Sebastian’s great devotion to family to his guilt, he is a believable and lovable hero and a perfect match for the cautious yet feisty Eleanor.

This was a fast, fun and delightful read. The chemistry between Eleanor and Sebastian was very steamy, and I liked that our heroine was more of a real woman than often occurs in some romance novels. I wanted to kick Sebastian's ass a time or two (well, he deserved it!), but he redeemed himself. Very enjoyable.

An interesting plot but very slow and too much is given to the thoughts of the characters with very little dialog. Kinda disapointed that by page 100 there is very little to know sexual tention.

I may come back to this book and give it a second chance.

I couldn't put this down until I had finished it @4am! Whoops!
The story line wasn't unique but it was entertaining. It's always helpful when a dashing rogue falls for the plain, yet intelligent, woman. :)

3.5. It was quite enjoyable, but I couldn't imagine that such a simple plot can get stretched into 400 pages :D
