Marcus Kincaid has returned to England after a ten-year absence. His older brother died during that time, making Marcus the Earl of Ashford. Not only that, his younger sister is embroiled in a potential scandal that could ruin her chance at marriage. His aunt has already called in reinforcements—The Paragon.

Vivian March is known simply as The Paragon. She moves through every circle within Society, smoothing out scandals and stopping gossip in its tracks. Everyone in London knows that if she aligns herself with you, Society will forgive you your sins. What they don’t know is that she uses their secrets to cover her own jaded past.

But with every kiss and every touch that Marcus thrusts upon her, Vivian comes to believe life is infinitely more fun when you can be just a little bit wicked…

It feels like its been a long time since I read a good historical romance novel. I use to be obsessed with these when I was in high school and I am rediscovering my love for them.

This novel reminded me everything I absolutely love about this time period and why these novels are always good. The drama is real and not something straight out of a telenovela; the romance is as real as it gets and there is character development (something that some novels should make not of).

Vivian has reinvented herself after an incident has left a scandal in her wake, by hiding other people's scandal. When she is contacted by Marcus in order to clean away his own sister's scandal, Vivian agrees despite their own rocky past. And one thing on Vivian's list to do is marry Marcus off before he starts getting too close to her, but it might come too late.

This was a cute story. Like most, I loved how the chase was going between Marcus and Vivian. I honestly have to give Marcus the props for the way he kept after her.

I liked the characters and the overall growth of the novel that I saw.

The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because I felt like a little more could have been added to the novel. It went by way too fast for me. But on the upside it will at least be a quick read.
