Review

Shortlisted for the NEW TALENT AWARD at the Festival of Romance (Bedford, UK - November 2013)

Phyllis King 
  • This book is fast paced, funny and set in two wonderful locations: Notting Hill and the Highlands of Scotland. There were many laugh out loud moments, but serious ones, too. Reading through the other reviews I can see that I'm not the only reader to have fallen in love with sexy, alpha male/hero, Ruairi Urquhart. I also felt great sympathy for the feisty Fliss, felt her loneliness and was glad everything worked out for her in the end.

From the Author

I'd like to thank you for taking the time and trouble to check out my debut novel Tall, Dark and Kilted. I've worked hard to make it the best novel I can and I hope that when you turn the last page you'll feel that everything draws to a satisfying conclusion. Most readers have expressed a desire to travel to Scotland after reading Tall, Dark and Kilted and to check out Men in Kilts for themselves. Whether they'll find their own Ruairi, I couldn't say.

More About the Author

If you have a dream - go for it.
Life is not a rehearsal

With Scottish, Irish, and Brazilian blood in her veins, it's hardly surprising that Lizzie Lamb is a writer. She even wrote extra scenes for the films she watched as a child and acted out in the playground with her friends. She is ashamed to admit that she kept all the good lines for herself. Luckily, she saves them for her readers these days. Lizzie's love of writing went on hold while she pursued a successful teaching career, finishing up as a Deputy Head teacher of a large primary school. Since deciding to leave the profession to realise her dream of becoming a published novelist, Lizzie hasn't looked back. She wrote Tall, Dark and Kilted - which echoes her love of her homeland in every page, not to mention heroes in kilts - and published it. Lizzie loves the quick fire interchange between the hero and heroine - like in old black and white Hollywood movies - and hope this comes over in her writing.
For her second novel: Boot Camp Bride (available now on all amazon sites) she's had enormous fun researching VW camper vans, the Norfolk Marshes and the world of journalism. Not to mention falling in love with a delicious new hero - Rafael Ffinch. She is currently working on her third novel, where she will be returning to her homeland: SCOTLAND.

I enjoyed Tall Dark and Kilted for the characters in it - especially the gorgeous Ruairi - and feisty Fliss who struggles against all odds to make her way in the world. The Scottish scenery was a character in its own right, misty, mystical and mysterious. I liked the way the author wove Scottish history into such a contemporary story and thought the push/pull of sexual attraction between the hero and the heroine definitely sizzled. Tall Dark and Kilted will stay with me for a long time.

I do love to see men in kilts! No matter how skinny their legs and knobbly their knees in "real" life, when under a kilt mens legs take on a new muscular, athletic life. This novel is a little like that :)

Lizzy Lamb has managed to take a traditional romance and invest it with the flavour of Scotland, a country I love. All the usual suspects are there - the badly behaved family, the best hero's best friend, the ex-finance who - fleetingly - appears to try and reclaim what she has discarded and of course, the tall, dark and devastatingly handsome hero. The heroine is feisty but not, as in so many romance novels, so "over-the-top" as to be a pain in the bum. Ms Lamb has had the good sense to make her heroine realise how she has contributed to the drama.

The ending was good and strong and I was smiling when I finished the story and am eager to read the next of Ms Lamb's works.

What greater compliment for an author can that be? :)

This book was full of different things - sadness, happiness and some comic relief. Didn't take long to get thru it. Totally enjoyed it and the description of "Tall, Dark and Kilted" was right on!!

Tall, Dark and Kilted is set in a castle in the Highlands, with a sexy laird, a spit fire heroine and his crazy family. It is a delightful story with all kinds of crazy twists and turns; interference at every turn from the family to add frustration and humor to the range of emotions suffered by the laird. It is a wonderful story of conflict, humor, frustration, plot twist and best of all love. For a first novel it is first rate ~ WOW!

Tall, Dark and Kilted
Tall, Dark and Kilted: Notting Hill Meets Monarch of the Glen]]
I have just finished Lizzie Lamb's first book and must say it was not what I expected. Knowing that Lizzie wrote romance with her group of fellow romance authors, I was expecting a flaky type of romance story...you know the type: girl falls for guy, guy treats her mean, girl dumps guy, guy then realises what he has lost and changes his spots to be girl's true love and hero.
But Lizzie's book is far more involved than this. The story is definitely very much like Monarch of the Glen and I must say I was pleased there wasn't too much of the Notting Hill in it! The younger Scots were far from nice girls and didn't make such fun reading, but once Fliss the main character had arrived in the highlands, the 'real' story took over.
Would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys an indepth story with romance and a touch of magical dreams coming true for the main character.
Looking forward to Lizzie's next book in the new year

I absolutely loved Lizzie Lamb's "Tall, Dark and Kilted." Great read! It is the British/Scottish version of 50 Shades of Grey but written much better. The main character (Fliss) isn't a pathetic twit and she actually has ambition and intelligence. It is enjoyable to get inside her head during the story and not at all annoying! The characters in this book seem so real and that put me on an emotional roller-coaster with them as I empathized with their situations. Other comments mentioned that they couldn't get into the book but I think the build-up in the story is exactly what kept me up during the wee hours reading, when I really should have been sleeping. The best part of this book is definitely the engaging story with great vocabulary but it is still very easy and enjoyable to read. Can't wait for more from Ms. Lamb! Buy her book now before she becomes too famous and her kindle version is $9.99 instead of $2.99!

I loved this novel! It had a fresh and flirty voice with just the right amount of thoughtful introspection to give it real depth. The Scottish Highland setting is beautifully described, so much so that I felt I was really there, and the eccentric cast of characters made this an absolute delight to read. I understood the motivations of each and everyone of them, even when they behaved badly or did the wrong thing.

The main character, Fliss, was a wonderful amalgam of both bloody-mindedness and tact. From a humble background, she finds herself drawn into the world of the upper-crust super-rich, through a series of manipulations, and although she's attracted to it, she never loses her integrity and strong sense of self. Nevertheless, there are still lessons for Fliss to learn, the first being that there's more to people than meets the eye.
