Review: A Little Bit Wild by Victoria Dahl

63578957From the back of the book:


Jude Bertrand is not an excellent dancer. Nor does he wear the most fashionable coats. But when Marissa York’s brother approaches him, desperate to preserve Marissa’s tenuous reputation, Jude does prove heroic enough to offer to marry the girl. In fact the union should more than make up for his lack of social graces – and his own scandalous past…


Marissa knows that betrothal to the son of a duke – even one as raw and masculine as Jude – will save her from ruin, but that doesn’t mean she’s happy about it. Soon, though, she finds that Jude has a surprisingly gentle touch – and plans to use it to persuade Marissa that their wedding day cannot come soon enough…

If you are a regular reader here at the book girl then you know all about my love of anything and everything Victoria Dahl writes. I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy of A LITTLE BIT WILD and read it during Romcon. I know that some people will have a problem with Marissa, because she is more like a contemporary heroine than a historical one. However, I loved her and probably for that same reason. She is curious about intimacies between men and women and doesn’t seem to feel any remorse for her exploration. Jude is also a fantastic character. The way her relates to Marissa and doesn’t try to pressure her into anything is fantastic. I could tell from the very beginning that he really loved her. The only thing I didn’t really care for in the book is what happens with a note that is received asking for money or Marissa’s action would be revealed. At that point, I just wanted to get to the happy ending and didn’t need the added intrigue. A LITTLE BIT WILD is a fantastic romance with an unconventional heroine and a sexy hero!

the book girl gives  A LITTLE BIT WILD a 4/5
