Book Review – Lust and Love with a Scottish Laird

A Dance With The Laird (The Baxter Sisters Book 1)A Dance With The Laird by Dora Bramden
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Natalie and Angus are beautifully drawn characters. Both have good reasons to avoid commitment, but this is a romance book…so of course I’m expecting a happy ever after by the time we get to the last page!

Angus is almost too good to be true. But he’s written in such a way he comes across as quite believable. He is gorgeous, self-confident but not arrogant. He’s even able to share Natalie’s pleasure in Jane Austen’s world. The story comes to life in richly described settings throughout the United Kingdom.

I don’t often read romance books, but I really enjoyed this story of two commitment-phobes falling in lust, and then in love. I’m sure lovers of happy-ever-after romance set in contemporary times will really enjoy it.

This is Dora’s lovely debut novel. She can be found at her website

In addition to writing herself, she is the coordinator of the Melbourne  Romance Writers Guild.  After meeting Dora at last year’s Romance writers conference, I sent in my application and joined the group earlier this year. My aims were to enjoy the company of other writers and to learn more about writing romance.

I couldn’t be happier 🙂 Dora and all of the members are a delight to be with. They share their knowledge and experience freely, understand the ups and downs of a writer’s life, and delight in one another’s successes.

I’m sure this is the first of many novels for Dora and I wish her every success 🙂
