About The Irresistible Miss Peppiwell:

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.

OMG, literally just finished this and I need more!!! I first started it because I’m working on the Scandalous line and I love Stacy but it literally sucked me in within the first chapter. I couldn’t put this book down and it drove me crazy that my kids Frozen movie night at school started when I had just 15 minutes left in the book! I was so tempted to sneak out and finish it but restrained myself until we got home.

I loved Anthony and found his character to be refreshing in that he wasn’t dead set against marriage. In fact, he has decided he wants to settle down and have a family. He is gallant, caring and has a slightly darker sexual side I hadn’t been expecting.

Phillipa was an interesting character as well. She didn’t want to be bound by society’s rules and longed to live life free of these restrictions. I loved her spirit and the fact that for the most part she was true to herself and what she wants vs bending to anyone else’s will.

The chemistry between the two was so hot I swear I needed to stand in front of a fan to cool off. If there was ever a book that made me want to hug it in happiness this would be one. I must go read The Duke’s Shotgun Wedding now to see how Lady Jocelyn and Sebastian end up and I need Constance and Payton’s stories now!!! Please write faster Stacy. :)

    Oh that sounds excellent! I love when the hero is actually ready for marriage and a family like that.

    Such a pretty cover on this one. Thanks so much for the heads up about it. I really need to get back to the Scandalous line.
