This was a enjoyable read. I loved the fact that our heroine, Vivian, is 34 and finds herself attracted to a younger man, such a refreshing change of pace. Vivian has a secret she much keep about herself and has shaped her life into helping others keep their secrets and scandals covered up, again a fresh situation for me and one I enjoyed. Marcus returns home, never expecting to be earl and has to deal with his now grown up sister's scandal. It throws this couple back together, ten years after a ...more

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 veneer 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 hist ...more

Robin was given a review copy by the publisher in exchange for her honest review. Her review was first 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 keep

"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's sure to delight the romance lover in

Now he must clean up the mess his family has created in the short time it took him to leave his adventure tour guide career and get home. The person his family thinks can solve the problem of his sister’s indiscretion is a woman above reproach, Vivian March. Vivian is what could politely be termed an unmarried woman of a certain age who essentially has kept her reputation intact. Marcus is intrigued by he ...more

"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.

This was a fast paced thoroughly entertaining book. I loved that Vivian was a mature, strong woman. I loved that Marcus wasn't the type to fight his feelings or his responsibilities. Right from the beginning I liked both of these characters. Vivian is a woman with a secret. She has lived her life not ignoring her past, but working "with" it. When everything comes to a head, Marcus turns out to be someone that she can rely on when she had thought she could never trust another man.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. As I said, it is not the typical book where the girl is caught in something scandalous (like a kiss or three dances with the same man.) This woman did two scandalous things. The second was a kiss, and the first, much more. She spent the next ten years making a life for herself as the Paragon. Ten years later, she met up with the man she kissed and things got a bit more wicked from there. This book did have some mature scenes but they were not just gratuitous sex, ...more

Thanks Ms DeHart for a wonderfully put together book!

Written in the historical time when scandals and intrigue in society would make you or break you, Vivian March has been stuck in her own scandal for ten years while fixing the problems of everyone else. Until Marcus Kincaid shows up and has her all in a frenzy about her past.

This made a good fast paced love story, one I can read again and again.

A bit of scandal! A bit of misdirection! Old scandal, new scandal, new love. A great look at the standards of high society and the consequences of not following those standards. Vivian works on behalf of her "clients" who have fallen from those standards (even by that tiniest bit) while hiding her own secret. Marcus is determined to divert her attention. Great story!

There's nothing sweeter when someone from your past still remembers that sweet, innocent and passionate moment you shared together, even if it lasted like 5 min. :D (Well, they do say less is more) and there's is nothing more exhausting when he is NOT going to let you forget it.

I couldn't finish this one. It's not even that long, but I still couldn't do it. At the 60% mark I just couldn't take it anymore.

The heroine, Vivian March, is 34 by the time of the story, and she keeps going on and on (and on) that she must be wearing a "Scarlet W" or the equivalent. That every man who sees her must somehow be able to sense that she is secretly a "wanton woman".

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 gu

A Little Bit Wicked is the first book in Robyn DeHart's Forbidden Love series. I really liked this charming regency romance. It has a lot to offer : a unique couple , scandal , secrets , blackmail, romance and passion. What more could you want ?

Vivian March is known to the ton as The Paragon, and she helps members of society who have committed indiscretions to stop the gossip and make the scandal disappear. If they only knew that she had been ruined when she was younger, by a man who promised her everything and then deserted her. But that is a secret that she has buried deep, and no one will ever know of it, even as she resigns herself to spinsterhood.

This book is A Little Bit Wicked. I have to admit I haven't read many historical romance because well I though they would be boring. But that isn't the case in this book. The author threw in romance, mystery and some heat.This was my first book I have ever read of Robyn DeHart and defiantly not going to be my last.

My first read by this author, and I would say, it was quite an OK read for me.

It was quite so-so, as in to tie the loose ends of Vivian being blackmailed by her former lover only took like 2-3 chapters toward the end, which I expected more with Frederick stalking her non stop.

I like the premise, Vivian is called the Paragon, but would love some background story on who and what case she has solved for the nobles, so I have a more in depth view on Vivian. Rather, the author painted quite a dull st

The love that supposedly developed between the main characters was unconvincing and the story was overall pretty boring. The story was at times unintentionally silly and just plain awkward, such as when the heroine decides to take it upon herself to find the hero a bride, invites him over to tea to announce that she plans on doing this (He is basically a stanger to her at this point in the story) and then announces she doesn't want to see him. I use the word awkward because none of this was set ...more

3-3.5 stars.

I enjoyed this one. What you read from the synopsis is what you get. It's set in a historical-England setting and the entire story flows quite well with everything from speech to dressing and character thoughts matching the timeline.

Whilst there wasn't anything spectacularly amazing about the story, I did enjoy the way it developed. Some parts were a bit cliche (example, the "scandal" that our main female lead - Vivian March - had was no surprise and was actually quite predictable)

So, we have a zipped up Paragon who lost her virtue ten years ago and has gone to the other extreme ever since; and a slightly younger h who knows she's not totally dead when it comes to passion. The story had its good points, but the h's constant harping on about her being older than the H; and her constant bemoaning (to herself) that she is somehow beyond the pale when it comes to her virtue, was extremely tedious. There was more than one occasion when I wished Marcus would look elsewhere for ...more
