ARC Review: A Little Bit Sinful by Robyn DeHart

A Little Bit Sinful is Robyn DeHart's second book in the Forbidden Love series. It is a pleasant late Victorian story of childhood friends that discover an attraction to each other. Of course, they both have reasons why they should not be together. The heroine is lively and fun and the hero is everything you could want in a guy.

Justin Rodale is the bastard son of a duke and has never discovered the identity of his mother. He is not accepted by Society, but uses his wits to build a financial dynasty through a gaming hell. Clarissa is the daughter of an earl. She believes she is destined to marry a particularly handsome gentleman even though he seems a reluctant to take the plunge. Clarissa reconnects with Justin and enlists his help with her suitor. Justin fights his growing attraction to Clarissa because he believes he is not good enough for her. Unfortunately, he knows her suitor is not good enough either.

Overall, I was disappointed with this book. I have thoroughly enjoyed DeHart's breezy, clever writing style in the past, but a lot of that feeling was missing here. Clarissa was not completely a too-stupid-to-live character, but she was naïve and impulsive. There wasn't a great deal of character development evident with either the hero or the heroine. The difficulties they encountered were resolved in ways that were not totally satisfying. Clarissa's many lone nighttime excursions were particularly troublesome. They were just not believable. A Little Bit Sinful will not be my last Robyn DeHart book because I know she can write delightful stories. This one was good, but I will hope for more from the next one.

My Favorite Book Boyfriend with Elise Rome and Giveaway

Elise Rome has never forgiven Margaret Mitchell for making her fall in love with Scarlett and Rhett in Gone with the Wind and then not giving them a happy ending. She likes to think that she makes up for this injustice with each romance novel she writes. When she isn't telling stories about sexy, headstrong heroes and intelligent, independent heroines, Elise stays busy chasing after her two young daughters, semi-attempting to do housework, and hiking in the beautiful foothills of Colorado. She, also, unashamedly, adores her readers.

My Favorite Book Boyfriend with Ruthie Knox and Giveaway

Ruthie Knox graduated from Grinnell College as an English and history double major and went on to earn a Ph.D. in modern British history that she’s put to remarkably little use. She debuted as a romance novelist with Ride with Me—probably the only existing cross-country bicycling love story yet to be penned—and followed it up with About Last Night, which features a sizzling British banker hero with the unlikely name of Neville. Other publications include Room at the Inn (a Christmas novella) and How To Misbehave, book 1 in the Camelot series. She moonlights as a mother, Tweets incessantly, and bakes a mean focaccia.
