Book Review 👩🏻‍💻

Description:
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.

 

Review: 

Wicked in His Arms by Stacy Reid is set in the Victorian era. I  had expected a tame read. This was anything but, Tobias Blake is convinced the only way to live is to be cold and controlled at all times, he won’t ever become like his father, (his father was handy with his fists, and often lashed out at Tobias’ mother and Tobias) he is happy with his mistress and ladies of the same mind.  When he does settle down, it won’t be to Olivia, she is opinionated, loud and emotional, and that just won’t do. But after being caught by surprise with the lady in question, Tobias is strangely drawn to her, and maybe a little passion is called for, and maybe he can lose control with his new wife. 

Olivia doesn’t want to be married off, as she is happy living a quiet life with her family. All she wants to do is earn a living by painting or becoming a ladies companion. After meeting Lord Blake, she is more determined to live a single and quiet life; he is cold, rude and very controlled. But after her beloved stepfather falls ill, the family decides its time for Olivia to be married off and look after her family. 

The instant dislike between the main characters was fun to read. Olivia tried very hard to be a lady, but it wasn’t her fault that Tobias always caught her at her worse moments. 

You could understand why Tobias didn’t want to marry, and certainly didn’t want to give into passion, as he didn’t want to turn into a possessive and violent husband. 

It’s fun to watch the lord fall for his wife, and it’s fun to watch Olivia come into her own. The other characters in the book were a likeable bunch, and you wanted to read more about them all. 

It was a fun read
