With enough sparks to set off fireworks, this is a fabulous romance story from author Lizzie Lamb.”
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.
