After a sheltered upbringing, Lady Lucinda Sutcliffe is finally embarking on her first season, eager to experience everything she’s missed. When Lucy realizes that her uncle plans to quickly marry her off in exchange for a slice of her fortune, she begs a favor of a new acquaintance, Ciaran Ramsey. If Lucy remains single until she turns twenty-one, she—and her money—will be out of her uncle’s power. All the charming Scot needs to do is woo her for six weeks, and then jilt her . . .
The Ramseys don’t need the scandal of a false engagement attached to their name. But Lucy’s older suitor is both distasteful and dangerous, and Ciaran can’t allow his lovely friend to be forced to marry such a man. And besides, the more time Ciaran spends with his new “betrothed,” the more their ruse begins to feel very much like the real thing. Passion like this is impossible to feign, but how much is a rogue willing to risk for love?. . .

I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. For The Sake Of A Scottish Rake by Anna Bradley is the third book in her Besotted Scots series. It can be read as a stand-alone, but it is an excellent series, and I enjoyed reading the first two books. Lady Lucinda Sutcliffe has lead an extremely sheltered life, her father suffered from social anxiety, and he became more and more isolated from society. With his death, she is now under the care of her aunt and uncle, and about to embark on her first season Lucinda longs to experience adventures and a trip to Brighton seems like the perfect time. Despite a rocky start where Lucinda bloodies the nose of Ciaran Ramsey when he mistakenly assumes she is drowning and attempts to rescue her, they become friends, and she turns to him when she realizes that her uncle is selling her hand in marriage to a nasty villain whose first wife died mysteriously. This is a lovely friends to lovers story with a fake engagement, a dastardly guardian and there’s only one bed. I enjoyed reading this book and do recommend it. Light to Medium Steam.

Entirely engrossing story. Ciaran and Lucy meet under peculiar circumstances and a deep friendship is forged. Lucy's Uncle has great plans for Lucy's life and her money, which she is determined to thwart, and Ciaran keeps trying to help. Really enjoyed the humour and the inventive way these two kept getting together. This book can be read as a standalone, despite being a part of a great series, as Ciaran's family only make a brief appearance. Highly recommend.

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 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
