Tobias Walcott, the Earl of Blade, has learned it is best to exercise rigid control over his passions and emotions in all that he does. Uncaring that it makes him seem cool and aloof to most in the ton, he is content with his desire to only woo agreeable and demur females. Then unforeseen circumstances see him trapped in a closet at a house party with the last woman he would ever make his countess.
Lady Olivia Sherwood is everything he should not desire in a female—unconventional, too decisive, and utterly without decorum. But passion ignites between them and they are discovered. Honor demands they wed, and while Tobias finds himself unwillingly drawn to the bewitching beauty, he must do everything not to tempt the passion that burns in him for her, lest it leads to disastrous consequences.
Stacy Reid has eloquently written a sensual, funny, and endearing historical romance. Wicked In His Arms is a story of pure desire, the challenge of changing oneself, and the hope of a future in love.
The story starts in Riverhill Manor where Olivia Sherwood is tending to her step-father. He is pushing for her to ready herself for society to find a husband. Olivia is more interested in finding romance, painting, and living life her way. She doesn’t want a husband who will squelch her desire to roam free.
An uninvited visitor forces Olivia to leave her step-father’s house to his cousin’s the mother of Tobias Walcatt Earl of Blade.
Tobias first run-in with Olivia is quite hysterical. He runs right into Olivia when they both are riding near the estate. Tobias denies any interest in Olivia by pushing and demeaning her. Olivia is unlike any other woman he has ever met. She is not lady like. Olivia acts in ways similarly to men and is not appropriate for women. Also, she isn’t looking for someone to support her.
I will say that Stacy allows readers into the head of Tobias and Olivia. We get to see his thoughts. We also get to see the inner working of one quirky Olivia. These two set off sparks both of being total opposites as well as the heat that they ignite when they are alone.
There are so many twists and turns in the story line that I felt like I was on an emotional rollercoaster. I could not stop reading until I hit the end of the book. I was addicted to Tobias and Olivia’s story.
Wicked In His Arms is one story that I would recommend to romance fans. It is a must read. I look forward to more by Stacy Reid.
I am an avid reader of novels with a deep passion for writing. I especially love romance and enjoy writing about people falling in love. I live a lot in the worlds I create, and I actively speak to my characters (out loud). I have a warrior way “Never give up on my dream.” When I am not writing, I spend a copious amount of time drooling over Rick Grimes from The Walking Dead, Lucas Hood from Banshee, watching Japanese Anime and playing video games with my love—Dusean. I also have a horrible weakness for ice cream.
