The steps of a charmingly complex dance—Scotland’s famous reel—are at the heart of Hester Browne’s enchanting contemporary novel of two very different sisters whose dreams may come true at a romantic Scottish ball.

Evie Nicholson is in love . . . with the past. An antiques appraiser in a London shop, Evie spins fanciful attachments to Victorian picture frames, French champagne glasses, satin evening gloves, and tattered teddy bears—regardless of their monetary value.

Alice Nicholson is in love . . . with Fraser Graham, a dashing Scotsman whom Evie secretly desires. As crisply neat and stylish as Evie is cheerfully cluttered, Alice is a professional organizer determined to pull her sister out of her comfort zone—and who presents her with an irresistible offer.

As a favor to friends of Fraser’s family, Evie jumps at the chance to appraise a Scottish castle full of artifacts and heirlooms. What could be more thrilling than roaming the halls of Kettlesheer and uncovering the McAndrews’ family treasures—and dusty secrets?

But crossing paths with moody heir Robert McAndrew has Evie assessing what she wants the most . . . and at an upcoming candlelight gala, a traditional dance will set her heart reeling.

Praise For Swept off Her Feet

"SWEPT OFF HER FEET is a delight! If you're looking for a modern day fairy tale with the perfect edge of acerbic Brit wit, you'll be swept off your feet by Hester Browne!" Teresa Medeiros, New York Times bestselling author of GOODNIGHT TWEETHEART

"A charming example of British chick lit, with a lovable, self-conscious, hopelessly romantic heroine and a dark and dashing leading man, a Scottish castle full of history and romance, and as much appeal and complexity as a Scottish reel." -- Library Journal

“Hester Browne’s latest is a fun read that most assuredly hits the chick-lit/contemporary romance spot. Satisfying in every aspect. -- Bookbitch.com

“Browne's clever modern-day Cinderella story balances a sharp eye for the ridiculous with a genuine affection for the foibles of tradition to tell the delightful story of a woman finding passion--and freedom--on the dance floor.” -- Publisher's Weekly
