Justin Rodale is the wealthy bastard son of the Duke of Chanceworth. He owns the most lucrative and luxurious gaming establishment and caters to London’s elite. Educated with the rest of the aristocrats, he knows all the rules by which Society lives, but he is beholden to no one.Clarissa Kincaid has been raised to be the perfect English lady. She knows precisely the sort of match she should make and she’s fairly certain she’s found that with a respectable gentleman. But the man won’t commit and she finds herself seeking assistance in the form of seduction lessons from Justin.
This is a challenge the charming Justin can not resist. She may think that he knows nothing about her needs, but he’s determined to show her that he knows plenty about her secret desires. He has no intention of publicly ruining the girl, but he’s determined to privately tempt her into some slightly sinful behavior.
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.
