Overview

One scandal was never enough . . .

After four long years, Morgan MacCraig has finally returned to the Highlands of his birth . . . with his honor in shreds. After a scandal, all he wants now is solace-yet peace is impossible to find with the castle's outspoken new maid trying his patience, challenging his manhood . . . and winning his love, body and soul.

Jean MacDonald wants to leave her past behind and start anew, but Ballindair Castle, a Scottish estate rumored to be haunted, hasn't been the safe haven she envisioned. Ballindair's ancestral ghosts aren't as fascinating as Morgan, the most magnificent man she's ever seen. Though their passion triggers a fresh scandal that could force them to wed, Jean must first share the secrets of her own past-secrets that could force them apart, or be the beginning of a love and redemption unlike anything they've ever known.

Meet the Author

Karen Ranney began writing when she was five. Her first published work was The Maple Leaf, read over the school intercom when she was in the first grade. In addition to wanting to be a violinist (her parents had a special violin crafted for her when she was seven), she wanted to be a lawyer, a teacher, and, most of all, a writer. Though the violin was discarded early, she still admits to a fascination with the law, and she volunteers as a teacher whenever needed. Writing, however, has remained the overwhelming love of her life.

    3.5
    Set in mid 1800s in Scotland, this love story is about an Earl and a Maid in his ancestral castle after five years of absence. SCANDALOUS indeed but the scandal came even before they have met each other.

    Morgan MacCraig had finally come home to Scotland after five years of living in London with his wife, now EX-wife. It is within his rights to divorce but no one dare to ask what happened to him in London. Except for a witty, ghost-hunting maid whom he ran into (literally).

    Jean MacDonald is not without secrets or scandal in her past. She and her sister, Catriona was taken in by her aunt to work as a maid in Ballindair Castle. Though as simple looking as Jean is, she is smart, well educated and one with a good heart. And because of those reasons, she unintentionally captured an Earl's heart.

    This book reminded me of the movie Maid in Manhattan with Jennifer Lopez. A simple maid thriving to do what she does to the very best of her ability had met her knight with shining armor. And like wise for the knight, finding the one to save him from his lonely existence.

    Morgan and Jean were perfect for each other. They were funny, sweet and complimented one another. Though they were pushed together by an unfortunate event, their romance was not rushed. and their story warmed my heart.

    Ms. Ranney had me laugh out loud, sigh with approval, annoyed at the villains, and cheered for the hero and heroine. This is a very charming love story and I would recommend it to anyone seeking a great, feel-good novel to delve into.

    Love Karen Ranney's writing. Had not read her until I bought The Virgin of Clan Sinclair then couldn't wait to get online and order more. Picked plain Jean's story just because I liked the reviews on it. Now can't wait to read her sister, Catriona's story.

    Really enjoyed it!

    About 260 pages. Story moves along quickly. Good character definition. Well written. A little different than the usual formula romance novel which is nice. Few brief sex scenes but lots of romance.

    A smashing good read

    Finally a 'romance' novel that's a love story with excellent writing and characters who shouldn't have the reader screaming because the characters are too stupid to exist!
