Product description

About the Author

If you have a dream - go for it Life is not a rehearsal After teaching my 1000th pupil and working as a deputy head teacher in a large primary school, I decided it was time to leave the chalk face and pursue my first love: writing. In 2006 I joined the Romantic Novelists? Association?s New Writers? Scheme, honed my craft and wrote Tall, Dark and Kilted(2012), quickly followed a year later by Boot Camp Bride (2013) and Scotch on the Rocks (2015) - finalist, The Exeter Book Prize. I love the quick fire interchanges between the hero and heroine in the old black and white Hollywood movies, and I hope this love of dialogue and the meet-cute comes across in my writing. Although much of my time is taken up widening my readership, publicising Tall, Dark and Kilted, Boot Camp Bride and Scotch on the Rocks I have now finished a fourth novel - GIRL IN THE CASTLE, due for publication April 2017. I am a proud founding member of the indie publishing group: New Romantics Press and have hosted Author Events at Waterstones High Street, Kensington, and Aspinall, St Pancras, London and raised funds for local Cancer Awareness charities. As for the years I spent as a teacher, they haven?t quite gone to waste as I am building up a reputation as a speaker on the subject of self-publishing and how to craft and finish your novel! I hope you enjoy reading GIRL IN THE CASTLE ? I had enormous fun writing it and am currently in the planning stages for #5.

Another gem from Lizzie Lamb. I am so envious of Henri's job as an historian researcher, and even more so of her Scotsman in a kilt. I loved the characters, the setting and all of the little bits of Scotland that Lizzie manages to get into her novels. Already looking forward to number 5.

By the time I’d finished this latest novel from Lizzie Lamb, I felt like I’d actually been on holiday in Scotland, so authentic were the settings and the speech. Following an injustice by the Dean of the college where she works, academic Henriette Bruar is recommended to catalogue the library of a Scottish laird in a remote Highland Castle. Because of an initial misunderstanding over her name, the inhabitants, the philandering Malcolm MacKenzie, his housekeeper Alice and general factotum Lachlan are all expecting a male professor. Adding to the general confusion, the son and reluctant heir, Keir MacKenzie, arrives on the scene. After some initial conflict between her and Keir, the two are drawn inexorably towards each other, as they become involved in subterfuge to rescue some family papers and an exciting treasure hunt that can save the MacKenzie fortunes. Although the two novels are not connected in any way other than being set in Scotland, this is a very worthy successor to Ms Lamb’s previous novel ‘Scotch on the Rocks.’

Once upon a time, a beautiful princess lived in an ivory tower and dreamed of growing up to become a professor of history. Now with her newly minted PhD in hand, Dr. Henriette Bruar assumes her latest discovery will put her on the fast-track to a coveted Lecturer position and research career. Instead, her career in ruins, she finds herself forced to hide from the academic world by taking a temporary position cataloging the library in a semi-derelict Scottish castle for a remote Highland laird, Sir Malcolm MacKenzie.

But as the decaying books fail to yield the treasures that might save either the MacKenzie clan or her academic career, Henri finds herself in unwilling conflict with almost everyone around her, from Sir Malcolm to his staff, local residents, and especially the Laird’s estranged son and heir, Keir MacKenzie. Heir to a bankrupt estate, Keir unwillingly accepts Henri’s presence to catalog and dismantle the remainder of their once-prosperous castle. Meanwhile Henri is an unwilling observer as she watches an old tragedy continue to destroy the lives of everyone around her, while she herself keeps hearing the warning sounds of a ghostly piper.

Adding up the de rigueur gothic romance tropes—remote castle, handsome heir, beautiful young employee, jealous romantic rival, wealthy suitor, and that phantom piper—and you have all the tropes of a standard romance. But tropes exist because they work. In the hands of a talented writer like Lizzie Lamb, they aren’t cliches as much as they are building blocks, which she makes uniquely her own. For example, Henri doesn’t insist that she has no idea what men see in her with her long legs, thick blonde hair, and green eyes. Instead, she dryly cataloges the men who only see that far and miss her driving ambition.

I loved this book. It's the first I have read by this author. Doctor Henri didn't plan on taking on this job up in the highland castle and finding love. It's had me gripped from start to finish and as well as been an interesting story had a very cosy feeling to Scotland that I love to visit. Good insights into the language and foods of Scotland that you come to learn from. I will certainly be reading more by this author

The title of this book is The Girl in the Castle: fall in love with a Highlander. Well actually it’s not just the highlander I fell in love with - although Kier MacKenzie is totally gorgeous. When I settled down to read this book I fell in love with everything: the atmosphere of the castle, the loch, the surrounding countryside. This is Lizzie Lamb as I’ve come to know her through her books; someone who is great not only at producing memorable characters, but atmospheric vistas as well.
As usual, Lizzie delivered a great cast. Henrietta Bruar (Henri) was an engaging heroine, arriving at the castle to catalogue the contents of the library prior to auction. The laird, Sir Malcolm MacKenzie is a bit of a devil for the ladies – even Henri wasn’t safe from his wandering hands at times! Then there’s the no nonsense Alice Dougal who cooks and manages the castle and dour, outspoken Lachlan MacKenzie who’s not at all happy with the fact the newly-arrived Dr Henri Bruar is not only female but an attractive one at that! And then, of course, there’s Keir…a definite reason to revisit those episodes of Outlander. For Henri the path of true love is destined to become slightly bumpy following the arrival of brother and sister Alex and Ciarstaidh MacKenzie-Grieves. He is a charming wastrel while with her sights firmly set on Keir she makes it clear no one is going to get in her way, especially Henri.
A wonderful read with something for everyone. Loved it!

It’s fair to say, I think, that there are times when many of us enjoy a story with slightly softer edges – but that more gentle read still has to have a good story, well drawn characters, a realistic bit of love interest, a few twists and turns to the story to keep you hooked, plenty to bring a smile to your face, and it must be well written. This lovely book delivered absolutely everything I hoped for.

Henri is a wonderfully feisty heroine with a slightly murky past: “gorgeous, sexy” Keir isn’t initially the man of anyone’s dreams, but I so enjoyed discovering his hidden depths. The supporting characters are excellent too – Alice the housekeeper (with her own secrets), curmudgeonly (and very funny) Lachlan, the lascivious Sir Malcolm, and the element of complication to things running smoothly added by Alex and Ciarstaidh MacKenzie-Grieves.

The setting was wonderful – the unconventional access arrangements for the castle, the changing faces of the loch perfectly described, the castle itself vivid in every detail. Heavens, I could sometimes hear the phantom piper too. And although I must admit that I’m rarely a fan of accent and dialect being conveyed in dialogue, in this book it was so well done, so totally appropriate, that I really couldn’t imagine it being done in any other way.

This might be the first book I've read by Lizzie Lamb, but it certainly won’t be my last – I enjoyed this book very much.
