The Irresistible Miss Peppiwell by Stacy Reid

Release date: August 11, 2014
Publisher: Entangled: Scandalous
Genre: Historical (Victorian) Romance

With a longing for adventure, the last thing Phillipa Pippiwell wants is to marry. After a painful betrayal by a man she trusted, she is wary when she unwittingly catches the attention of roguishly handsome - and sinfully tempting - Lord Anthony Thornton. Forbidden desires she secretly yearns for threaten to crumble her icy facade and reveal a past scandal best kept buried.

Dissatisfied with his empty life, Lord Anthony seeks a deep and lasting connection... and finds himself intrigued by the Ice Maiden of the haute monde. Undaunted by Phillipa's aloof nature and her distaste for the idea of matrimony, he sets out to thaw the bewitching beauty by enticing her with adventures of the most sensual type. But he, too, hides a scandalous secret... and if it's discovered it could rip them apart.

My Rating: 5 Roses

A charming, sweet, and utterly enjoyable historical romance, The Irresistible Miss Peppiwell was simply lovely. I really liked this fabulous book.

Phillipa was a likable heroine. She was an independently minded person who chafed against the confines of society. She wanted to travel the world to get away from those rules, but once she met Anthony, she was clever enough to realize that that wasn't the only way to find freedom. I thought she was a lovely character

Anthony was wonderful. Very sweet and loyal to the people he cared about. And, once he knew he wanted something, he wasted no time in going after it. He was a perfect hero.

The romance was both sweet and steamy. Phillipa and Anthony were perfectly matched, both dancing to the beat of their own tune and unwilling to let society tell them differently. And, they had some seriously hot chemistry that turned the heat level up. They were a lovely couple.

The plot moved quickly and I was hooked the entire way through. The story was light, sweet, and I enjoyed every bit of it. And, the ending was just perfect.

The Irresistible Miss Peppiwell was a fantastic historical romance. It was a lovely read that I thoroughly enjoyed. Romance lovers, this is a book you'll definitely want to check out.
