Release day: Scotch on the Rocks
Today is the official release of Scotch on the Rocks by Lizzie Lamb (ebook and paperback, New Romantics Press). Here’s the blurb
Her wealthy industrialist father has died unexpectedly, leaving her a half-share in a ruined whisky distillery and the task of scattering his ashes on a Munroe. After discovering her fiancé playing away from home, she cancels their lavish Christmas wedding at St Giles Cathedral, Edinburgh and heads for the only place she feels safe – Eilean na Sgairbh, a windswept island on Scotland’s west coast -where the cormorants outnumber the inhabitants, ten to one.
When she arrives at her family home – now a bed and breakfast managed by her left-wing, firebrand Aunt Esme, she finds a guest in situ – BRODIE. Issy longs for peace and the chance to lick her wounds, but gorgeous, sexy American, Brodie, turns her world upside down instead.
In spite of her vow to steer clear of men, she grows to rely on Brodie. However, she suspects him of having an ulterior motive for staying at her aunt’s B&B on remote Cormorant Island. Having been let down by the men in her life, will it be third time lucky for Issy? Is she wise to trust a man she knows nothing about – a man who presents her with more questions than answers?
As for Aunt Esme, she has secrets of her own . . .
Lizzie dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
Scotch on the Rocks is my second Scottish-themed book, the first being Tall, Dark and Kilted. I have waited a long time to become a writer, having been a primary school teacher for thirty-four years, but the wait has been worth it. I had originally planned to write romantic comedies, but the feedback from readers is that they love the authentic Scottish background in my novels (I am Scottish) and so that’s what I’m giving them. I can’t resist putting humour into my romances, just as I can’t resist creating sexy, to-die-for heroes and heroines who give them a run for their money. I am about to start writing #4—Heart of the Highlands and hope to publish that in 2016. My motto is: if you have a dream, go for it; life it not a rehearsal.
