Peek Inside The Irresistible Miss Peppiwell

With a longing for adventure, the last thing Phillipa Peppiwell wants is to marry. After a past betrayal, 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 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 proving to her that adventure doesn't have to end at the altar. But he, too, hides a scandalous secret...one that could tear them apart if discovered.

Review

"The Irresistible Miss Peppiwell is a wonderfully readable and sexy romance. "--Romantic Historical Reviews
 
 "The writing here is exquisite--and I don't mean overwritten, but with each word beautifully placed on the page. The plot is fresh and original, with definite twists on the usual scenarios of the era making for a truly exciting read. I found I held my breath more than once. I tensed. I happy-sighed. And yes, I swooned." --Author, Sarah Ballance
 
 "I was in love before the end of the 1st chapter. I must give Ms. Reid (insert pompoms here) my top score of 5 fingers up & 10 toes for this romance tale with ties of silk, love play with bondage & a burning ecstasy filled with true acceptance!" --Goodreads

Secrets...secrets...secrets...oh my!
The beautiful young Miss Peppiwell of Boston is causing quite an uproar among the young men of English society.

Loved it! I enjoyed the first book The Duke's Shotgun Wedding and this one did not disappoint. I loved the flow of the story, and how quickly I became invested in the characters.

I adored Anthony. He was sweet, charming, but with that edginess of an alpha male and definitely sexy. He made the sto... ...more

By Lily August 11, 2014

I thought this was a really well done novel. The lead characters, Anthony and Phillipa, are well-drawn, enjoyable characters. Anthony is definitely an alpha male, but with a bit of a sensitive side, and he and Phillipa have great chemistry through out. Phillipa is a strong female lead who's both... ...more

Let me just say when I finished The Duke's Shotgun Wedding, book 1 in the House of Calydon series, I immediately friend-ed Stacy Reid on FB and messaged her about how much I LOVED the novella and asked when the next book was coming out. Because I needed it like five minutes before I reached the l... ...more

Review of The Irresistible Miss Peppiwell by Stacy Reid Story is good and all the characters, especially Phillipa, are likable.

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.

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

OH EM GEE. Ms. Reid just shot to the top of my auto-buy list. Phillipa Pippiwell may be the ice queen, but all that cold turns to blistering HAWT steam when the delicious Anthony Thornton gets his hands in all the right places.

By Miriam August 12, 2014

As much as I adore historical romances, there two things I despise: the low opinion society had of women who weren’t “pure”, and the low treatment of children born as bastards.

That being said, I liked this book. *chuckles* It’s because of those two aspects that I like this book. Phillipa doesn’t... ...more

Stacy Reid's The Irresistible Miss Peppiwell, a book in the Calydon series, is one of those novels that is painful to put down and takes over your thoughts the next day at work while you wonder what will happen to the characters next.

By Nicola July 29, 2014

Ms Reid has penned a fast paced, sensual and a thoroughly entertaining read here. Anthony is a great hero - rakish but not averse to marriage and family, and bedroom tastes which spice up the pages. He is well matched by Phillipa, a strong and independant miss with a past. I particularly enjoyed... ...more

By Lashette April 21, 2015

I enjoyed the first book but as I thought, once space was given to really flesh out the plot and characters, we got some great storytelling in this one. We get some more background on Sebastian and Jocelyn since this is somewhat of a prequel, which is great. Loved Anthony and Phillipa. Phillipa e... ...more

By Raquell February 04, 2015

I love a good regency...especially when the heroine is not a pushover and a pushover Miss Peppiwell was NOT. I adore a regency hero who thinks he wants a specific type of "wife" but in the end chooses someone completely opposite who really fits him. Both Anthony and Phillipa had a different type... ...more
