Publisher's 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.

My Musings

I have to say I'm disappointed with Scotsmen Prefer Blondes. I read Heiress Without a Cause, the first book in this series and absolutely loved it. Even though I don't get to read as much as I used to, I had to download this with the audio for $1.99.

While the first book kept me enthralled from beginning to end, this one had me ready to give up several times. I even tried to return the Kindle version, but I'd had it too long I guess. It rare for me to want to give up on a book. Since that wasn't possible, I figured I might as well finish with hopes it would improve, It didn't.

I did not like Amelia’s character at all. She acted very immature and self-centered. While she was supposed to be a strong independent woman, who never wanted to marry, she acted like a doormat on several occasions. Once she felt compelled to marry Malcolm, she gave into his tirades and obnoxious behavior.

You guessed, it did not like Malcolm by the end of the book, even though, I did like him fairly well up until the part where a cottage on his estate burned. The tide turned when he brutally takes Amelia, leaving bruises on her hips!

As I read this, I was reminded of Cathy and Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights. Amelia and Malcolm act as mercurial as they did, going from hot to cold in the blink of an eye.

I really wanted to like this book, but in the end, even though it does have a decent ending, it just wasn't strong enough to redeem either character for me. Happy reading!

Finding Love

Amelia wants her friend Prue to be happy and she doesn’t think Malcolm is that person. When she meets Malcolm his kisses blind her to passion. When they are caught by Prue and Amelias brother Alex they are basically forced to marry. Prue feels betrayed and leaves. Malcolm wants a biddable wife that will host parties and dinners for political gain and to help the clans! He never guessed he would get so much more! But when her secret is revealed can they find their way back to each other! A wonderful book and series!

Disappointed

I enjoyed the first book in the series and looked forward to this book. BUT this book is so confusing and inconsistent. It feels like the author couldn’t commit to a plot. First he wants to marry her... then he wants her to cry off... then he wants a real marriage... then he doesn’t want a real marriage. The whole plot is forced and not well developed. It had good potential but was meh in the end.

Loved it!

I like both the hero and heroine with their hot love for each other and how they grow into each other. I liked this book more than the first one.

So boring

Two hours in, and I just cannot suffer more of this. The only thing that happened was that the heroine betrayed her best friend after two hours of boring and meaningless babbling.
