Product Description

About the Author

After teaching her 1000th pupil and working as a deputy headteacher in a large primary school, Lizzie decided it was time to leave the chalk face and pursue her first love: writing. She joined the Romantic Novelists’ Association’s New Writers Scheme, honed her craft and wrote Tall, Dark and Kilted. She’s had enormous fun researching men in kilts, falling in love with brooding hero Ruairi Urquhart, and rooting for heroine Fliss Bagshawe - and hopes you will, too. Born in Scotland, Lizzie has always wanted to write a romantic novel set in the Highlands and Islands and with Tall, Dark and Kilted she has done just that. She has a well developed sense of humour and hopes this comes across in her novel. Although much of her time is taken up publicising Tall, Dark and Kilted she has completed her second novel: Boot Camp Bride and has embarked upon a third. Boot Camp Bride has an element of intrigue and suspense and is set in the atmospheric Norfolk marshes where Lizzie has spent much of her time. Lizzie is a founding member of an indie publishing group: The New Romantics 4. Her fellow New Romantics are June Kearns, Mags Cullingford and Adrienne Vaughan. The New Romantics 4’s watch cry is: all for one and one for all. All four New Romantics will be e-publishing their second novels in November 2013 and have organised 'red carpet events' where they will share their experiences as writers and talk about their novels to readers.

TALL DARK AND KILTED
Lizzie Lamb has written a real corker in Tall, Dark and Kilted. All the ingredients for a great book are here; exhilarating plot, wonderful characters, an abundance of humour, all set against the beautiful backdrop of gloriously scenic Scotland. It is a book you can’t put down in a hurry because it is so absorbing and you just have to find out how things turn out for the heroine, feisty Fliss Bagshawe and the difficult, arrogant Laird, Ruairi, who clash spectacularly throughout the novel. It is frequently hilarious with great dialogue, particularly between Fliss and Ruairi. The ‘will they, won’t they?’ debate runs through the book and the reader is kept guessing right until the very end. A thoroughly entertaining read to warm your heart and is to be highly recommended, particular for lovers of romance.

When Fliss Bagshawe loses her job as an holistic therapist after attending a party in Notting Hill that gets out of control, she thinks that her chance of running her own therapy business are over, until she is given a once in a lifetime opportunity to run a therapy centre, five hundred miles away in Scotland. Happy to leave her life behind in Pimlico she heads for the Scottish Highlands.

However after a chance meeting with the handsome but brooding Laird of Kinloch Mara, Ruairi Urquhart, Fliss finds that her dreams and plans could be over. Ruairi takes his responsibilities as Laird very seriously and thanks to an earlier misunderstanding when they first met Ruairi thinks that Fliss is no more than a scheming opportunist out for all she can get.

Fliss must take on the Laird and his eccentric family to convince them that she is passionate and determined and committed to make the therapy centre a success, before Ruairi puts a stop to her dreams before she can turn them into reality and she finds herself unemployed and back in London; two people from completely different backgrounds. The Laird is set in his ways and stubborn. Will Fliss be able to convince him that she is not what he thinks she is?

With enough sparks to set off fireworks, this is a fabulous romance story from author Lizzie Lamb. A fun and entertaining read from page one, engaging the reader straight away into the story that is written with excellent wit and humour that will make you smile. A cast of lively and thoroughly good fun characters that are so likable that some could have their own spin off stories. I loved everything about this book from the beautiful colour purple of the cover and the catchy title, to the escapism of getting lost in this great book for a few hours. I look forward to reading more books by Lizzie Lamb.

Tall Dark and Kilted is a beautifully written story, and has strong main characters in Ruairi Urquhart and Fliss Bagshawe. Ms. Lamb's cast of secondary characters cannot be described as wishy-washy, they are as vibrant and essential to the plot as Fliss and Ruairi.
Who could predict that being arrested in London would lead Fliss to meet the man of her dreams? For Ruairi his step-sisters' latest friend, Fliss, is just another problem to deal with and get rid off as if he didn't have enough trouble on his hands, such as saving his inheritance, without taking on any more. But for both, things don't go as expected and certainly not as planned.
Change is said to fuel progress and Fliss's arrival at Kinlock Mara is a catalyst no one predicted - or did they? It is also said that change is not welcomed by those who let tradition rule - and Ruairi is all for tradition.
The scene setting is amazing and had me longing to go back home. The detail and depth of all the characters takes Tall Dark and Kilted beyond the `also-ran to' a book this reviewer considers a keeper. Add the powerful emotions, the inter-family conflicts and the individual dreams, beliefs and cynicism, plus the humour, between them all, and it makes Tall Dark and Kilted a powerful story that carries the romance between Ruairi and Fliss from start to finish.
For this reviewer, Tall Dark and Kilted is a keeper.

This book is a wonderful modern romance. Fliss is hard working and independent, when a party gets broken up by the police and Fliss needs a good reference from her employer it becomes the last thing she gets, before the sack. Faced with the need to find a new job quickly, she jumps at the chance to manage a Therapy centre in the Scottish Highlands.

Ruairi is the Laird of Kinlock Mara who is forced to keep tight reins on his step sisters and their mother. Isla and Cat lead a wild life spending money from Trust funds with little care for anyone but themselves. Ruairi believes they've brought Fliss with them as a decoy for their overspending and bad behaviour. But Fliss is determined to make a go of the business despite constantly fighting Ruairi and his dis-trust.

Full of hot and cold blasts of tension between the pair, this story is full of romantic Scottish themes; Kilts, bagpipes, scenery, Gaelic whisperings, Clan Urquhart tartans and Strathspey reels. Definitely an enjoyable read.

This review is based on a free copy of the book given to me by the author.

Forget Heathcliff or Mr Rochester – there’s a new dark, brooding hero on the block by the name of Ruairi, a Highland laird. Lizzie Lamb captures the beauty and mystery of the Highlands perfectly while delivering us a hero to die for. At first we see his brusque, arrogant, domineering side as he struggles to keep his two wayward half sisters in check as well as his scatter-brained stepmother and her half baked plans. When Fliss is invited to the Scottish pile to set up a beauty treatment centre, Ruairi puts her in the same category as his sisters, scheming and manipulative and thinks she’s only there to bag herself a rich husband. Fliss is determined to keep him at arm’s length and to prove that she has a good business head. Will the two of them ever overcome the obstacles? You’ll have to read this gorgeous romantic tale to find out. What more could you ask for, a tall dark kilted hero set amidst the most dramatic Scottish scenery? This book left me feeling just a little in lurve – with Scotland and with Ruairi.
