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…

My thoughts:
Scotsmen Prefer Blondes is the second book in the Muses of Mayfair series. The series is about a group of women who live in the Regency Era. They all posses talents in the arts that would be considered scandalous and ruin their reputations if word ever got out about it. Lady Amelia Staunton is an author. She writes under a pseudonym but enjoys it tremendously.  She has no desire to be married. In fact she's called The Unconquered by her peers. Lady Amelia travels to Scotland with her dear friend, Prudence. They are there to meet Malcolm, a possible match for Prudence. At first glance, Malcolm is instantly attracted to Lady Amelia. However, she doesn't want anything to do with him. She tries to scheme to get Malcolm and Prue together, but it backfires causing all sorts of backlash.
The Muses of Mayfair series is enjoyable. I love the characters. Lady Amelia is very beautiful and talented. She's got a lot of spunk but her schemes always seem to cause more problems than she can handle. Malcolm is every girls fantasy. He's  torn by duty and love. He wants Amelia desperately but his duty to his country and his people drive him. Their relationship is a complicated one. Nevertheless, they have quite a bit of spark between them.
Scotsmen Prefer Blondes is an excellent read. It's has humor, scandal, and fire. The characters are endearing and you want them to succeed in life and love. This is becoming one of my favorite series. I can't wait for the next book!
