Publisher's Summary

With a longing for adventure, the last thing Phillipa Peppiwell 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.

Great Story,

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A different narrator.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Irresistible Miss Peppiwell?

When the heroine decided to marry the hero, despite his circumstance of birth.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

She made the hero sound wimpy. Did not even try to deepen her voice to make him sound male at all. He sounded like a weak, feminine dandy.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Irresistible Miss Peppiwell?

All the scenes where the narrator played the hero.

Pretty hot

I think the best thing about this book were the sex scenes. A few pretty steamy scenes but could’ve gotten a little more wicked. The narrators voice reading was fine but didn’t like the way she made the two main characters sound. A couple parts I felt like reaching through and strangling someone. But not a bad book. I intend on finding out if this is part of a series and if so will be listening to them. I loved everything about Anthony and hope theirs a book about his brother!

This is the first, not the second!

Whoever decided to tell THIS story AFTER the other made a mistake. Knowing how it ends and most of the story before it began makes it an awful bore! My biggest problem is that I want to know if the end of this book gives away the first book or if this one was actually the first after all. Of course that would still ruin this one! But I just can't do it. I'm not in love with the delivery or desirous of the missing details to go any farther. Three hours from the end and I quit. I figure this way book three will get to be unexpected for sure since I really do like the series so far....
