Portrait of a Scotsman
Portrait of a Scotsman | Evie Dunmore
Going toe-to-toe with a brooding Scotsman is rather bold for a respectable suffragist, but when he happens to be one's unexpected husband, what else is an unwilling bride to do? London banking heiress Hattie Greenfield wanted just three things in life: 1. Acclaim as an artist. 2. A noble cause. 3. Marriage to a young lord who puts the gentle in gentleman. Why then does this Oxford scholar find herself at the altar with the darkly attractive financier Lucian Blackstone, whose murky past and ruthless business practices strike fear in the hearts of Britain's peerage? Trust Hattie to take an invigorating little adventure too far. Now she's stuck with a churlish Scot who just might be the end of her ambitions.... When the daughter of his business rival all but falls into his lap, Lucian sees opportunity. As a self-made man, he has vast wealth but holds little power, and Hattie might be the key to finally setting long-harbored political plans in motion. Driven by an old revenge, he has no room for his new wife's apprehensions or romantic notions, bewitching as he finds her. But a sudden journey to Scotland paints everything in a different light. Hattie slowly sees the real Lucian and realizes she could win everything--as long as she is prepared to lose her heart.

We‘re expecting another good snow dump starting tomorrow, so my husband and I ran all our preparation errands this morning and I‘m now settling down with this stack of #WeekendReading possibilities. 😄 We have a long weekend here, so I‘ve got two full days and this evening to make a dent.

The tagged book is up first!

Andrew65 Sounds like reading is the best option. 5d

Tons of fun. The audio was really well done. Maybe even better than the first book in the series.

Got leveled in the middle of the night by either mild food poisoning or a stomach bug, so I‘ve spent the day in bed reading. This series is pretty delightful. #portraitofascotsman #eviedunmore #aleagueofextraordinarywomen #womenssuffrage

Jess_Read_This Sorry to hear you are under the weather! But you chose a great author and series to recover with! I really enjoyed this series too. 3w

Another great entry in this historical romance series. My favorite book is #2, but I liked this one better than #1. Not at all holiday themed (takes place during the summer). I started it at the end of November, but it is my first #WinterGames #TBR read. Whoop 🙌🏼

Kimberlone @StayCurious the whole series is very cute. Love that the main characters are all suffragettes! 1mo

I really liked this book, third in the series, this one focuses on Hattie, who unfortunately is caught with Lucian Blackstone in a compromising position. It is funny, steamy and delightful.

A quick, fun romance read with a nice arc for our leading lady and a wonderful rogue of a leading man. Just the thing to kick off my BFF readathon Up North! I know that starting with this book gets me out of series order, and now I'm looking forward to going back to the beginning with all of the characters in this world.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I loved this book!
There was brooding, character development, slow burn with a big payoff, and Scotland. What more could I ask?I enjoyed Hattie‘s character & how she was such a foil to Lucian without seeming overly silly. &I loved how Dunmore chose to end the story - I didn‘t see it coming, but it was very satisfying. After being disappointed by book 2, this was a great read, and I‘ll still continue to read all Dunmore writes.

Each October, my two best friends and I spend a weekend at a cottage #UpNorth for a reading retreat. We do take walks and enjoy the outdoors and have the occasional heart-to-heart; but primarily we sit in companionable silence and tear through as many books as we can. It's my favorite, most indulgent weekend of the year, and though it's still a couple weeks away, I'm already beginning to make my book selections for the trip! #MittenLitten

IMO these are the best romance novels going!!!

CoffeeAndABook Just finished reading the first book in this series ~ and loved it so much!! Is this one just as good? 4mo
mcctrish @CoffeeAndABook I inhaled the first 2 and had to wait a month for this one, I‘m glad I had some space between them truthfully. They sort of follow a pattern story wise but the underlying story of the suffragette story extends on through all 3. You only see snippets of the other women going forward. I really love them all 4mo
CoffeeAndABook @mcctrish * thanks, that‘s very helpful!! I‘ll give a little, but not too much time between books 😉 what a great series! I‘m so glad I found it ~ thanks to Litsy, of course 😁 4mo

Didn‘t like the female lead. She was whiny and annoyed me. Loved the male lead because his character had more depth and a better backstory. Ending was rushed and made zero sense. Had five star potential but ended up ⭐️⭐️½ for me. And I loved the first book in this series! What happened? ☹️

This was a fun read. There isn't a lot of plot, but there's tons of romance and lots of historical context. Romances are really hit and miss with me, but I thought these characters were well developed and the chemistry was really believable. It's a Pick for me!

This is the first day of my spring holidays. Yay. Here is my ridiculous #tbrpile could I manage a book a day? No. But I will do my best to get through as many as I can. Stayed tuned. Starting with tagged book. Also, #squeee #holidaysssss

Ironically enough, the romance was not the thing I enjoyed most in this romance novel. Hattie & Lucian discussing intersectional politics > most of their romantic/sexual relationship. #historicalromance

Banking heiress, suffragette, and aspiring artist Hattie Greenfield is in over her head when an errant kiss leads her straight into the marriage bed of the self-made Scottish financier Lucian Blackstone, a man whose reputation is as dark as Hattie's prospects of marrying the gentleman she's always imagined. Thrilling, tender, steamy, and full of rich historical context around women's rights, social justice, and life and love in Victorian England!
