    fine historical take of Cyrano

    In 1761 Canada Catherine Dunnan loves the romantic letters her military deployed spouse Harry sends her. Unbeknownst to Catherine, Harry is too busy womanizing to write her let alone read her replies. Instead trying to do a good deed, his leader Colonel Moncrief responds pretending he is Harry. Catherine comes to Scotland to surprise her Harry.--- However, Moncrief informs her Harry died. Stunned and filled with grief, Catherine overdoses with an opiate; Moncrief saves her life. As they become acquainted, he offers her protection by marrying her. As Moncrief and Catherine fall in love, apparently Harry¿s ghost wants to keep them apart though the Colonel wonders if the culprit might be more mortal like one of the deceased philanderer¿s lovers. --- This terrific Georgian romantic suspense combines a mystery with a Cyrano like plot as the audience ponders paranormal or human and what will happen to the relationship when (readers will expect the ethical Moncrief will tell the truth) the hero reveals his secret. The lead couple is a likable pair as Catherine has fallen in love with her letter writing ¿spouse¿ and Moncrief reciprocates even before they have met. Fans will enjoy this fine historical take on the Edmond Rostand classic.--- Harriet Klausner

    This is How Powerful Love Can & Should Be...

    This is the first book by Karen Ranney that I have read. I was really pleased after finishing ¿Till Next We Meet¿ as it contained all the elements I like: passion, intensity, deep character development, an entertaining plot and sizzling love scenes. A few things I found the most compelling in this story were: 1) How the book focused heavily on the letters written between heroine Catherine and her husband Harry (or so she thought) while he was away in North America doing military work. The letters were passionate and deep and beautiful. They progressed from barely strangers as husband and wife to soul mates via this correspondence. 2) I liked how realistic Captain Moncrief/The Duke of Lymond our hero¿s emotions were. He was oozing loneliness from his childhood and adult life and the letters he secretly penned to Catherine in place of her husband opened up his heart and mind in ways he never believed. I especially enjoyed his ¿honest¿ reaction to meeting her the first time: she was gaunt, pale, high on laudanum and had stringy brown hair and empty brown eyes ¿ she was not the beauty he pictured in his mind. Moncrief was appalled at the woman he found. Not his dream gal. I liked this touch by the author ¿ it made Moncrief a very much a real man. For once¿she wasn¿t the perfect princess of every man¿s fantasy. Fortunately¿as the book went on, the real Catherine re-emerged from the fog of pain, drugs and loss and she became greater than any dream Moncrief could ever imagine. She became everything he ever wanted. He was not a rake, rogue, scoundrel, gambler, womanizer or debaucher of young gals. He was truly what a man should be when you hear the word, ¿hero¿. 3) The love scenes between Catherine and Moncrief were wonderful. I liked how she didn¿t want to be intimate with him in the beginning because she couldn¿t let go of the past and her late husband but, Moncrief very wisely played with her mind more than her body and that caused interest and attraction to begin. Once they did get together, the fireworks flew like the fourth of July. The scenes were tastefully written, powerful and believable. The other situations going on in this book of who really wrote the love letters, what is going on with Catherine¿s housekeeper/friend Glynneth and who might be trying to poison Catherine were all worthy side plots in this story. If you have ever had a man write love letters to you - you understand the power of the written word! I give this book a hearty two thumbs up or as ratings go¿.4 plus stars! I would like to give it 5 stars but, I am picky with giving a perfect rating to any book. I only give that to really, really rare finds. This book came close though! If you have not read this author before, do pick her up. This one was definitely worth the lack of sleep I got reading it all night long¿sigh! Enjoy!

    Excellent!!

    Karen Ranney just keeps getting better and better. Having read and enjoyed the entire series about the MacRae family, I was hoping her latest offering would not be a disappointment. Far from it - I am now looking forward to the next one!!
