    Historical Romance

    For the Sake of a Scottish Rake by Anna Bradley Besotted Scots #2 Quick easy to read historical romance. It was not my favorite book by this author and I am sad to say that as I have truly enjoyed other books by this author. What I liked: * Lucy was not predictable * Three romances in one * The friendships * The thwarting of the bad guys * That everyone had a HEA What I didn’t like * Lucy’s behavior was more than a bit over the top and not in keeping with the times. *The time being rung in days and weeks and even times on the clock and spelled out repetitively * Falling back on the gambling relative using the heroine to pay his debts...to a less than admirable holder of those debts * The predictability * The lack of a true backstory for the main characters * Wondering how Uncle Jarvis became her guardian Did I enjoy this book? Not so much Would I read another book by this author? Maybe Thank you to NetGgalley and Kensington-Lyrical for the ARC – This is my honest review. 2-3 Stars

    wonderful couple

    For The Sake Of A Scottish Rake, by Anna Bradley, is available at booksellers on 2-18-20. Rake is book 3 in Ms Bradley's Besotted Scots series. I've been a fan of Ms Bradley's since her first book in 2015. I discovered that book by accident, it had a hot cover, and have followed every series since then. I've given Rake a rare, for me, 5 stars. It's the most entertaining book I've read in some time. I was invested in the characters, their journey, and HEA. I liked Lucy and Ciaran and rooted for them from page 1 to the very end (which is good). Lucy is a free spirit, finally set, kinda, free. She takes advantage of opportunities for adventures, trying not to get caught & ruin her reputation. I could believe her frame of mind and wish for something more. She meets Ciaran on her 1st big adventure and her lust for life brings Ciaran out of his funk. He's had to leave his home & start over & hasn't taken it well. He's a kind man, handsome too, Scottish with a sexy accent, and drawn to Lucy like a moth to a flame. They start as friends but in reality the relationship was more from the moment they met. Takes them an entire book to finally fess up and admit what we already knew. The journey is fun, witty, and sweet. The secondary characters are terrific and were fleshed out enough to make their love stories interesting too. Watching 3 bachelors taken to their knees is fun. Between the 3 couples there's a plethora of emotions flying around making for an interesting read. I really loved this book. Already looking forward to Ms Bradley's next offering. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. #AnnaBradley #ForTheSakeOfAScottishRake #BesottedScots #netgalley #KensingtonPress #LyricalPress #historicalromance #romance

    An Unexpected Love!

    Brighton, England 1818 Lucy was determined. She wanted to live life after being closed up with her father before his demise for the last four years. Now in the custody of her uncle, she just wanted to experience everything! Her first adventure was going out early in the morning and swimming on her own since her cousin Eloisa would not go in. But she was about to meet her fate, whether she knew it or not in the form on one braw Scot, Ciaran Ramsey who thought she was drowning and pulled her in to the beach! Thus the adventure begins! Ciaran ends up rescuing her out of a real scape and it seems they are bound to meet again! Then Lucy's uncle (vile man) is determined to marry her off before she turns twenty one and can access her inheritance and picks a terrible husband. She goes to Ciaran and asks him to pretend to be her betrothed and court her. Well, you know how that could end, don't you? Everything needed to turn this story into the perfect must read! Adventure, lies, witty banter, amazing characters and a couple who need each other, they just don't know it to begin with! Another truly delightful story by the fabulous Anna Bradley will "Wow" you until the end!

    Cirian's story

    I couldn't wait for Ciaran's story. After being jilted by his childhood sweetheart, he was so cynical about love. But yet he was always the gentleman, dancing with all the Wallflowers at balls. And that's how he meets Lucy. He sees her swimming by herself in the ocean and thinks she is drowning. He dives in to save her. Lucy, thinking shes under attack, kicks him in the face and nearly breaks his nose. That is the beginning of a beautiful friendship, that develops into a wonderful romance. This story has alot going on. There is madness, kidnapping and 2 other romances going on at the same time. Although I loved the story focusing on Lucy and Ciaran, I felt there was too many outside distractions. I also felt there were a few inaccuracies. Lucy is the daughter of an Earl. When he dies how does she inherit his country house named after the earldom. It should have been entailed. Also how could her Aunt not have known that dancing with a man 3x, all but says they are betrothed. I gave this book 4 stars. I thank Netgalley for the chance to review this book.

    Romantic

    Thank you netgalley for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review. I very much enjoyed this historical romance. Lucy is an independent, young woman desperate to experience the most of life even under the constricts of her evil uncle. She meets Ciaran after he mistakenly thinks she's drowning and saves her. He doesn't stop saving her from that moment on. She proposes friendship and they develop this easy relationship and trust that helps ease many of their woes. Her uncle tries to force her to marry another evil guy and Ciaran comes to her rescue once again. What I enjoyed most about this novel was how Ciaran protectively watches over her without smothering or being overbearing. Eventually they both learn to express their amourous feelings for each other and the rest is history.
