A BuzzFeed Best Summer Read of 2021!

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 desire for 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.

Portrait of a Scotsman

Author has good writing and characterization skills. I will not read another of her books because her writing is very didactic I would love to see her write from her heart instead of teaching us many lessons

I loved the first two books in this series. This book was slow. I skipped entire pages / the majority of chapters and missed nothing. The romance was good but there was a weird and unlikely turn at the end. Hoping for better luck with this author’s next book.

A different read

This was definitely its own story and unique in that way. It was not as exciting and fast paced as the first two. It became a bit sluggish at times actually. And the ending where Hattie made some questionable and ac scandalous decisions for that time period….didn’t really understand it or how it went with the story. Kind of bummed, this was ok.
