It’s publication day for Harper’s Highland Fling, the latest offering from friend and author, Lizzie Lamb.
After a gruelling academic year head teacher Harper MacDonald is looking forward to a summer holiday trekking in Nepal. Her plans are scuppered when her wayward niece, Ariel, leaves a note announcing she’s running away with a boy called Pen. The only clue to their whereabouts is a scribbled footnote: I’ll Be in Scotland.
Cue a case of mistaken identity when Harper confronts the boy ‘s father – Rocco Penhaligon – accusing him of cradle snatching her niece and ruining her bright future. At loggerheads, Harper and Rocco set off in hot pursuit of the teenagers, but the canny youngsters are always one step ahead. And, in a neat twist, it is the adults who end up in trouble, not the savvy teenagers.
Can cupid convince Harper and Rocco that they have found their soul mates?

Hi, I’m Lizzie and I like writing about ‘that moment’ when the hero and the heroine fall in love. That, and trying to track down that all elusive hero-in-a-kilt, is what gets me in front of the computer every morning. In 2012, I published Tall, Dark and Kilted quickly followed by Boot Camp Bride, Scotch on the Rocks, Girl in the Castle and Take Me, I’m Yours. My sixth novel – Harper’s Highland Fling is now available on Amazon to download as an ebook or to order as a paperback. I hope to start work on number seven – Dark Highland Skies very soon. I belong to the Society of Authors and co-organise the Leicester Chapter of the Romantic Novelists’ Association. I present workshops on indie publishing, and deliver an annual ‘state of publishing’ lecture to Creative Writing students at De Montfort University, Leicester. Luckily the skills I learned over thirty-four as a teacher haven’t deserted me.
My feel good/uplit novels would be very happy to sit on the bookcase alongside Jilly Cooper, Jenny Colgan, Jill Mansell and Carole Matthews. And, as for writing for Scottish themed romance, it’s given me the chance to celebrate everything I love about my homeland and the opportunity to share those feelings with you.

Dear Melanie, thank you so very much for giving my new novel a shout out on your fabulous blog. I woke this morning to find it was #1 in Hot New Releases – Scottish Historical. So I am immensely happy and proud, especially as I didn’t put it up for pre-order. (long story . . . ) Do let me know when your next one comes out and I will return the favour – Authors-helping-authors.
Congratulations, Lizzie! That’s brilliant news! I will definitely do that. Right now the writing is coming along very slowly.
Fabulous to learn all about Lizzie Lamb and her brand new feel-good romance. Sounds the perfect read for these cosy Autumn nights, and when we can’t go very far, what better than an armchair road trip from glorious Cornwall to breath-taking Scotland! Fantastic!
I’ve started reading it and loving it already. Happy publication day to the amazing Lizzie!
Thanks for sharing. This sounds like a great book! Congratulations, Lizzie!

Thanks for stopping by, Adrienne! I agree an armchair road trip anywhere since our movements are restricted is a wonderful way to spend the autumn evenings. My vote is for Bonnie Scotland, too!
