She envisions her life living in the countryside, content with the written page.
So when she accompanies her friend Prudence to Scotland to arrange a marriage with Malcolm McCabe, a lord who wants an obedient wife, everything goes awry. What starts out as Amelia's plan to "save" her friend from a marriage that doesn't seem suitable ends up...well, with Amelia in that lord's arms. Compromised, conflicted, and in lust. Of course, now she must marry this man. Those are the rules.
Thoroughly enthralled by the luscious castles, beautiful Scottish lands, and the sensual coupling of Amelia and Malcolm, I began enjoying this romp. And when the inevitable conflicts arose, with secrets revealed, I couldn't put this book down.
I must admit that the game playing annoyed me, but considering the times and the lack of power women had, I can understand that Amelia and Prudence both used whatever was available to them.
However, I am very glad to live in the 21st Century, with all of its problems, knowing that choice is not something we've lost...yet.
An enjoyable read, Scotsmen Prefer Blondes (Muses of Mayfair) earned four stars.
