Wicked in His Arms by Stacy Reid

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.

Each book in the Wedded by Scandal series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.

About the Author

I am an avid reader of novels with a deep passion for writing. I especially love romance and adore 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 Walking Dead, watching Japanese Anime and play video games with my hubby. My strength is my love - Dusean Nelson, and I have a horrible weakness for ice cream.

What happens when a man who’s tried hard to hide his true self under the veil of propriety meets a woman who refuses to hide who she is, who does what she wants – for the most part- and who stimulates both of his heads every time he’s around her? You get an outstanding, sometimes funny, occasionally steamy, historical romance, that’s what. What happens when it’s excellently written, smoothly flowing, perfectly-plotted and paced with well-developed, unique characters including a heart-stealing, chivalrous, strong-willed hero and a passionate, willful, loyal heroine, and enough backstory to make you want more? Oh, and throw in a great meet-cute, an unexpected tryst in a closet that somehow didn’t seem the least bit out of place for the usually stuffy, unbendable hero who totally unleashed his own passion, and a somewhat, not-really-a-mystery, mystery that works to bring the story to a lovable, beautiful ending? You get a book reviewer- namely yours truly- who smiles and itches to write a great review telling everyone they need to read it and report back on her blog telling us how quickly you fell in love with Tobias and how much you want to go to hang with Livvie.

Viscount Bathhurst’s cough jerked his whole frame and Lady Olivia it brought tears to her eyes to see her stepfather so sick when a few months ago he had been hale and hearty then a fall from his horse and after that a heart attack left him weak and frail. Livvie really worked hard to hide her terror when she thought her stepfather wasn’t going to make it. However it did seem to be better. Then the Viscount told Livvie they had to discuss the future. Livvie called him father and said that could wait until later. She also said she had lit a candle every night and her father said he thinks God heard her. Then he told Livvie he had written his cousin the Countess of Blade to sponsor her into the season. Livvie said surely there was no rush but her stepfather said “ you are twenty two”. She didn’t want to face the cruelty of London society again. She did not want to look into high society until she had her own money. Her stepfather thought they hadn’t done the best for Livvie by letting Livvie run wild, fishing. swimming, and selling her paintings when she should have been in Town attaining enough social polish to land herself a good husband. Livvie’s father had a scandal around him and he committed suicide even years after the suicide even years after the suicide the scandal wasn’t overcome. He had gambling debts and a mistress instead of do as he his father asked. After his upbringing Tobias grew up a abusive father and mother a lot of drama and Blade becomes cold and harsh and concerned with any kind of scandal. Blade meets Livvie at a party and is very drawn to Livvie . But he tries to fight it. There is a lot sexual tension but Blade- Lord Tobias Earl of Blade- tries to fight it There is a lot. Livvie and Blade are caught in a linen closet together and have to marry. After they are married Blade sets up strict rules: no tears, tantrums or scandals. Olivia does try but she can’t help who she is. That is why she wanted to marry a man who would accept her for who she is. Then Blade writes novels and it turns out he writes the novels Livvie loves to read. Blade shows his feelings in his books that he writes. I liked this story a lot. I love Livvie and Tobias together and how they struggled to be happy. I would have liked a little more action , I was really mad when William - Livvie’s stepbrother- just decided he would not honor his father’s wishes concerning Livvie and decided she would become his mistress starting right away. I didn’t like that at all, he’s a butt and wasn’t even willing to follow what his father wanted. But William obviously wanted Livvie now and he felt he had an excuse to have her or so he thought. This was an intense story and kept my attention and I didn’t want to put this down. But I did have some unanswered questions like why did Blake like kids so much and his charity was for orphans. I liked the plot. I liked most of the characters and all the ins and outs of this story and I recommend.

Have you ever read a book that makes you laugh, cry, sad, ecstatic, and fall in love? The author hits a home run with the back and forth antagonism between Tobias and Olivia. It adds layers of excitement and tension to this fully plotted story. This is not a boring book it is in fact very fast paced and lively. It is a book about allowing yourself to be loved and to love another. Olivia is by far one of my favorite feisty heroines. Born in a time when women were not meant to be anything but docile she excels in all things. If there is one flaw in her character it is that she doesn't think before she acts but it makes this story priceless and adds a deeper dimension to the storyline. Tobias made me cry. Firstly, because of his past life and how it caused him to be the cold person he was in this book. And secondly, because of how he treated Olivia. I admire how well the author presented his anger issues and how he would lose control. It was done in a manner that showed the violence as well as the control he fought to keep. Of course, there is a villain in this book and the reader despise him as I did. But....I won't tell you how despicable he is you must read this story to see if he gets his just rewards. I give this 5 STARS for its layers of excitement and tension. Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.

Wicked in His Arms by Stacy Reid is Book 2 of the Wedded by Scandal Series. While this book is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone. Wicked in His Arms tells the story of Tobias Walcott, the Earl of Blade and Lady Olivia Sherwood. Ms. Reid’s writing style is absolutely flawless, and as she craftily weaves her tale you are drawn into her vivid world, held captivated by endearing characters and a storyline that takes your breath away. I absolutely loved Wicked in His Arms. The interactions and chemistry between Tobias and Olivia *le sigh*...perfection. An ARC was generously provided in exchange for an honest review of which this is both honest and completely voluntary.

Scandal abounds in this new novel by Stacy Reid. Haunted by the scandal of her father’s death, Lady Olivia Sherwood is not eager to reenter society after her disastrous come out. Her step-father’s ill health forces her to make changes to herself she never wanted to. She needs a husband or her very life may lie in peril. The Earl of Blade, Tobias Walcott, doesn’t want for a wife, but he is enraptured by every move Lady Olivia makes. Since his mother has taken Livvie under her wing a the behest of Livvie’s step-father, she has run riot over Tobias’ life and emotions. Once caught after having an encounter in a linen closet, Tobias and Livvie are forced to marry. One element I found very interesting in this story was the intertwining of both Livvie and Tobias’ past scandals with their current one. Because of the past, they are completely wrong for each other, but the hint of current scandal is the one that brings them together. I loved the wicked banter between the two as they both tried to control the emotions that burned within them. The added pressure of Livvie’s friendship with Tobias’ younger sister brought forth another juicy scandal and caused passions to erupt, cracking the thick shell around Tobias’ heart. I adored both Livvie and Tobias. Livvie stayed true to herself even after trying to be a perfect miss. She continued to attempt to solve her own problems and against his core beliefs, Tobias was able to help her when she did need it. A glowing five star read and I can’t wait to read more from Stacy Reid!

Very rarely do I find a book that I feel the need to write my review right away. Usually I just wait and think it over, dissecting every part to decide what I liked or didn't like about the story, characters, and even the way the characters interact and speak. This one was a had to read, start to finish, and write my review as soon as I finished. The author of this created a world and characters that tempt and tease you, pulling you in from the start and slamming you with a barrage of emotions designed to wring every little piece of joy, sorrow, hope, lust, and pain that can possibly be pulled from you. I loved Olivia from the beginning. She's spirited and wild and a fresh view from the normal females read about. Tobias is cold, unyielding, and yet oh so dark and yummy. Together they are a explosive couple and impossible to ignore. I enjoyed every second of this tale of the Ton and Tobias and his Lady O. I willingly reviewed a Advance Copy of this title. All opinions are my own and honestly written.

Great historical read. Tobias dealt with a lot of drama as a child and vowed to not have the same as an adult. He would marry and agreeable demur woman. Fate had other ideas when he was locked in a closet with Lady Olivia. This is a fast paced and fun read. I liked the story as well as the characters.

'Wicked in His Arms' by Stacy Reid is book Two in the "Wedded by Scandal" series. This is the story of Tobias Walcott, the Earl of Blade and Lady Olivia Sherwood. This is easily a standalone book. Tobias grew up with a abusive father and a mother who did a lot of drama. So when Tobias grew up he set his mind to not being involved in scandle, drama or marrying a women that was to emotional nor would he love his wife. But when he meets Olivia he finds that he is strongly drawn to her but tries to fight it. Olivia is not the normal young lady of the Town. Her father caused a scandle which in turn her Olivia and her mother. Her mother remarried and now her step father is concern for Olivia if something was to happen to him that his relatives who not take care of her and her mother. So her parents has set it up that she is to have another season to find a husband. Tobias and Olivia fight 'like and old married couple' and the sexual tension is strong. So strong that they get caught and now are forced to marry. I truly enjoyed this book and just as the previous book by Ms. Reid I could not put it down! "My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

Hertfordshire England - 1818 - Riverhill Manor Viscount Bathhurst is ill and his stepdaughter, Lady Olivia (Livvie) Sherwood, is helping to care for him. She has loved him as a true father since her real father took his own life leaving her mother and two daughters alone and penniless. The Viscount has a son, William, from his first marriage, who will inherit everything except for a small cottage, and modest incomes se aside for his wife and two stepdaughters. When he tells her that he has asked his cousin, the Countess of Blade, to sponsor her for a season, she is not pleased. Having received a bad reception 3 years ago at her first season in London due to her father’s past, she does not want to go through it again. Livvie is happy with her life just as it is. As an accomplished painter, she has been able to earn money by selling her paintings. She is confident that when her stepfather passes, she will be able to help support them through this pastime. But her mother is also insistent that she find a husband. Yet when her stepbrother, William, tells her he is going to make her his mistress, she is shocked to the point she immediately agrees to go to the Countess of Blade for her assistance in finding a husband for her. Grangeville Park, South Hampshire Tobias Theodore Walcott, the Earl of Blade, is riding his horse very fast when he runs into another horse knocking its rider on the ground. The rider turns out to be Livvie. Furious at him for knocking her into the mud, he is intrigued by her anger as she scolds him. Of course, she knows that the Countess will be angry with her if she learns that Livvie was riding astride. As they get to know one another, Tobias sees that Livvie is not a very ladylike person and tends to be a bit of a hoyden. She is also very outspoken and enjoys things like fencing and fishing. Tobias is a very straight-laced man who is not easily moved by young women looking to wed him. But when he and Livvie are caught in a compromising situation, there is no other choice than that they wed. How can these two very different people expect to make their marriage last? This is a good story about two very opinionated people. I found Livvie to be very likable but Tobias needed a swift kick in the butt. I’m sure that readers will enjoy their adventures.

This is an author that knows how to keep her readers invested in her stories with action from start to finish. You have scandal after scandal, passion, lots of emotion, control of one’s feelings, betrayal, mystery, and so much more.

Lord Tobias must marry into a good family to be able to put his father’s scandal behind him. He will not be like his father and give in to his tempter and wild passionate ways.

There is one problem all the women he knows are airheads, screaming, tears and swooning when they do not get their way. He cannot stand this and feels no women should every cry or show emotion of any kind. His first meeting with Lady Olivia has him in a tailspin from her wild ways that no women should have, to the pull of her tempter lord what passion she must have inside her. He liked nothing better than to bed her but knows this cannot be she makes him feel all the emotions he swore he never feel. These two hit head on from the start baiting each other as tempters fly their passion grows with it coming to a head in the closet at a house party they find their selves in a scandal of the year leaving them no choice but to marry.

It seems these two can’t keep their selves out of trouble giving the ton more scandal then it has seen in years. Will Lady Olivia give in and marry him and if so how will Lord Tobias keep his tempter and emotions in check this is one woman that drives him beyond his control. Lady Olivia wants to rule her own life not to have a husband tell her what to do. Lord Tobias must be in control which gives some very exciting reading. As these two lay their cards on the table each has demand the other must meet. It was exciting to see who would bend and on what issue they were willing to over look. The author gives a thrilling read that really pulls you in, from one scandal to the next with such excitement and thrills in each. It was a book I could not put down I stayed up late to finish it. I loved Lord Tobias secret and how his use it in the end. The ending was wonderful leaving you with laughter and a smile. I loved the humor, baiting, and the emotion each character brings to the story. At first I wasn’t sure but it didn’t take long for this author to pull

I loved it. Both the characters and the story are amazing. It's humorous, and romantic. I quite enjoyed it and would recommend to all historical fiction fans. Tobias hate scandals. He wants to restore his family's good name. For that he must marry a lady who is above reproach. Any hint of a scandal in her past will not be acceptable. He is afraid he might turn out to be like his father so he also needs to take care of what kind of bride he takes. She must be biddable, a proper female, who will do everything right. Lady Olivia is the exact opposite of what he requires. She is too wild, too opinionated, and she never listens to anything she is told. She wants to live freely without restrictions. Therefore, there is no future for them, non whatsoever. Unfortunately, for both of them they are extremely attracted to one another. One misstep and Tobias finds himself in the situations he has been avoiding all his life. Now they must compromise and learn to live with each other. Because marry they must! It's a lighthearted story. I liked reading it and I hope that others find it just as entertaining as I did.

Wicked in His Arms is a Stacy Reid classic. In the way that only she can she gets her point across while staying true to her style. The message is clear. The story is engaging and the characters are unconventional to say the least. Of course there's scandal but there is also a lesson wrapped up in a tight little bow throughout the pages of Tobias' and Olivia's tumultuous courtship. "Be true to yourself and the rest will fall into place."
