I received this book from Joan Schulhafer Publishing, in exchange for an honest review.
Summary: She never wanted marriage…
When a friend is forced to consider a marriage of convenience, Lady Amelia Staunton is determined to rescue her. But her plans trap her in an illicit seduction, and Amelia must marry him herself. Malcolm’s all-consuming kisses and devilish humor might make up for her lost freedom, but she believes he will force her to abandon the Gothic romances she yearns to write. Since she can’t escape him, she must distract him from her secret…
He isn’t looking for love…
A powerful autocrat with a well-hidden rebellious streak, Malcolm MacCabe doesn’t need another beautiful mistress – he needs an obedient wife. Obedience is not one of Amelia’s virtues. But he’s too enthralled by her wit and passion to let her go – even if it means risking the political reputation he is building to save his clan.
Their hearts can’t survive the scandal…
Despite their intentions, every wicked embrace binds them together. But as their conflicting desires combust into insatiable hunger and unavoidable ruin, they must decide whether to pursue their personal destinies alone – or fight for the love that could destroy them both.
Thoughts: Amelia Staunton travels to Scotland with her friend Prudence. There they meet Laird Malcolm MacCabe. It is known that Prudence will soon be Malcolm's bride, but Malcolm is much more interested in Amelia. To her absolute frustration Amelia likes him too. The situation causes all sorts of complications.
Amelia is a wonderfully strong character, the kind I like reading about in regency books. I love the fact that Ms. Ramsey made her a writer, something that is secret and a complication. But a brilliant part of the story. Compared to Prudence, Amelia is overflowing with passion and charm. Malcolm is almost instantly enthralled with her. I loved watching the relationship blossom.
Scotsmen Prefer Blondes is an excellent read. It really surprised me. I wasn't sure I was gonna like it, but I ended up love it. Amelia and Malcolm are great characters. Their story is sensuous and heartwarming. Historical fans will want to add this one to their list.
