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.

Scotsman Prefer Blondes by Sara Ramsey
Amelia & Prudence are the best of friends as they both belong to a circle of friends in which each member holds a secret. The women go to meet a possible match for Prudence only to find that Amelia is seduced by Malcolm the bridegroom to be. He is not interested in Prudence and causes a rift between their mother's and the young women. Prudence and her mother are in desperate need of the money the marriage would bring.
This book was the second in the series and the first I've read by this author. She certainly had a lot of intimate moments throughout and lots of interesting twists and turns. Definitely for adult readers.
Don’t do it
The characters in this book are inconsistent, and the main conflict is not hard to solve. Even at fewer than 400 pages, frankly, this book felt interminable, with repetition and fluff that seemed to be thrown in simply to pad the page count. Though she writes great synopses and has interesting ideas, I will not be reading another of Sara Ramsey’s novels.
One of the most enjoyable books I've read yet! Well written, can't wait to read the rest of the series.
