    Bottom Line. This is my first book by Stacy Reid and unfortunately I really didn't enjoy it. Did not like either of the main characters, especially the hero, and didn't understand their relationship at all—they actively dislike each other (for good reason) for most all of the book. I didn't have a problem with the writing or some of the elements, i.e. I will definitely try another book of hers, but I would not recommend Wicked in His Arms to other readers.

    Basics. Spring 1818

    '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.

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

    I’ve read several books from this author, with mixed results. Some I liked but there were also a few I didn’t. Once I started reading this book I couldn’t put it down & read it in one sitting. I liked both characters immensely & the wealth of emotion was superlative.

    Livvie is spirited, intelligent and a talented artist. As an only child, her father brought her up like the son he didn’t have; teaching her to ride, shot, hunt and fence. No simpering miss, she has no regard for the strictur

    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.

    Lady Olivia was born way before her time being raised by a father that treated her more like a son she learned to do all the things a lady should not be doing. This causing her trouble as she grows older with her father leaving a scandal with his death and her tomboy

    *I am voluntarily leaving my honest review of an eARC I received from NetGalley and the publisher*

    3.5 stars.

    Livvie and Tobias are very interesting characters and honestly, I didn't like either one of them until almost halfway through the book. Livvie is first portrayed as willful, immature and reckless. Later in the book, she is more mature and while still a bit reckless, she doesn't come across to the reader as a spoiled child. Tobias is a total jerk at the beginning of the book, I understand

    There is nothing like a good scandal. Unfortunately for Lord Tobias, the Earl of Blade and Lady Olivia Sherwood they have been caught in quite the scandal of the season so now they will have to marry. Tobias wants more than anything to find a shred of honor left in his family after years of scandals and to marry someone who can control themselves completely and never cause a scandal of their own. This is why Olivia is so wrong for him, or so he believes the moment he meets her. She rides astride ...more

    I love when I find a new (to me) author to get excited about and read all her new books when they come out. Stacy Reid has a fan in me with "Wicked in His Arms". I'll admit to a little light Internet stalking where I found Reid's story about how she came up with the idea for this series. She said that she was rewatching "Pride and Prejudice" (love) and said to her husband "why doesn't Jane just get herself caught in a scandal with Mr. Bingley?" or something to that nature. And he suggested that ...more

    Once again Stacy Reid has left me spellbound by her beautifully spun story of romance between two wildly different people. I am intrigued by the persistent belief that opposites attract, and Stacy does an amazing job convincing me that I need to go out and find me a man who is gruff and hardened. Because I completely relate to her heroine every time, and this one is no exception.

    Lady Olivia Sherwood is a hoyden, revelling in the manly pursuits of riding astride and fencing and shunning the socia

    This book was a delightful read. I enjoyed the interaction and banter between the two main characters. It is a good novel is being true to yourself and accepting a person for who they are and trying not to make yourself something you are not. The author wrote very well and kept me entranced.

    Oh my what a delightful read this was! I enjoyed this story on so many levels, it is hard to figure out where to begin!

    The characters were strong, each set in their respective ways and completely unsuitable for one another. In fact, the banter between the two of them was easily my favorite part. I enjoyed watching them bicker just as much as I enjoyed watching them found in a compromosing way and the marriage that resulted. I also enjoyed the way that these characters grew as the story unfolded

    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.

    Wicked In His Arms by Stacy Reid was a non-stop entertaining story that I wanted to just continue reading - a story that I did not want to tear my eyes away from. A book full of magnificent, heartfelt, endearing characters, who held this reader captive to the words on the pages, with a scoundrel or two thrown in the read. Olivia and Tobias were dazzling and attention grabbing from the story's introduction, and the hilarious tug-of-war-dialogue between the two characters throughout the story had ...more

    Fantastic read. Full of verbal sparring, sensual tension, laugh out loud moments and a few tears. Olivia is opinionated, strong, intelligent and loving and rubs the arrogant, emotionless, stick up his arse Tobias the wrong way. The characters are so intriguing and the story so enthralling it was hard to put the book down. The love declaration scene(s) are so full of emotion I dare you not to shed a tear.

    I loved that Olivia would taunt Tobias, “and I expect you can kiss my backside, ” she said sweetly. Her vulgar tongue had arousal singing through his blood. " I really liked Tobias,he was good to Olivia,
    “hmm,” her husband muttered distractedly, and it was then she realized he had been inching her night rail from her shoulders. “I will talk no more of Westfall when I am trying to ravish my wife.” I really loved Olivia and Tobias, she was perfect for him.

    This was a wonderful read and I would highly recommend it!

    I loved the characters and thought both Olivia and Tobias were so refreshing. From start to finish I couldn't put it down. The story was well rounded and flowed wonderfully.

    You do not have to read the first book to enjoy this story - although I highly recommend you do, as it is a fantastic read as well. I can't wait for the next book.

    Scandal, drama, intrigue and passion. Life on a plate with all the dessert! This writer is magnificent in the way she creates a world for you to be immersed in. One that keeps you turning the pages. You are such a part of the story it is hard to surface. I truly enjoyed this book. It is a keeper. Her characters and plot lines are without a doubt fresh and creative. So buy the book and enjoy! I was given this book in return for an honest review. Anna

    Loved the heroine! I have a serious crush on her.

    She danced to the beat of her own drum - not her mother's, stepfather's, even stepbrother's. Or husband's, later on in the story. Her independent streak was constant, from the beginning to the end of the book.

    But due to her wild and independent streak, it was hard for her to find a husband. Not that she wanted or needed one. She had it all figured out, in case of tragedy. But nobody was listening to her and after being sent off to learn some prop

    I am an unapologetic romance lover. I read it. I write it. Enough said. Well..I also have a warrior way "Never give up on my dreams." I spend a copious amount of time drooling over Rick Grimes from Walking Dead, watching Japanese anime and playing video games with my love, Dusean.

    “I did not expect anyone to be here," he said. "I thought you would be asleep by now."
    She stared into his eyes for a long moment, hating how distant they seemed. "You've been swimming."
    "Yes. And it did not work."
    "What did not work?"
    "I still want you."
    Her heart was in her throat. She had not expected such honesty. "That is why you've been swimming ... because you desire me?"
    "Yes."
    "And is that so terrible?"
    "Evidently."
    She worked to contain her emotions. "Why?"
    "I have never hungered for another woman the way I do you," he said. "I do not like it.”

    “Do you have any affections for me?" she asked boldly, as was her way, jutting her chin, and damn if she was not staring him down.
    "No."
    She flinched.
    "What I feel for you is beyond affection. At the crest of each dawn I think of being inside you. I write and you crowd my thoughts. I sleep and you are the last person I think of, and damn me if when I wake, you are not the first person I fucking look for. I think that borders on obsession wife, not mere affection.”
