Overview

Who Is Montgomery Fairfax?

Though she possesses remarkable talents and astonishing insight, Veronica MacLeod knows nothing about the man who appears from nowhere to prevent her from committing the most foolish and desperate act of her life. Recently named Lord Fairfax of Doncaster Hall, the breathtaking, secretive stranger agrees to perform the one act of kindness that can rescue the Scottish beauty from scandal and disgrace—by taking Veronica as his bride.

Journeying with Montgomery Fairfax to his magnificent estate in the Highlands, Veronica knows deep in her heart that this is a man she can truly love—a noble soul, a caring and passionate lover whose touch awakens feelings she's never before known. Yet there are ghosts in Montgomery's shuttered past that haunt him still. Unless Veronica can somehow unlock the enigma that is her new husband, their powerful passion could be undone by the sins and sorrows of yesterday.

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.

    Wonderfully Heartwarming and Sensual Romance ~ Loved it!

    A Borrowed Scot, the final book in her Tulloch Sgathan trilogy, is probably my favorite story to date by USA Today Best Selling Author Karen Ranney, and that's saying a lot since I love her thoroughly eloquent style of in writing and the heartwarming, emotional tales she tells. But there was just something uplifting about this story that tugged at my heartstrings and left me feeling wonderful. It included several of my favorite subject themes: a marriage of convenience, culturally diverse people of different backgrounds and traditions, a heroine that's a bit unusual, the poor relation and the reluctant hero ~ that the author neatly blended together to make for a terrific storyline. I find a good reluctant hero simply irresistible, especially when they're the type of guy who's willing to step up to the plate and "do the right thing" whether they want to or not-because the core of their being is bound by firm moral principles, honor and integrity. They're perfect husband material. Montgomery Fairfax was a solid and honorable guy and a great reluctant hero. He was a southern gentleman that came from a well respected Virginia plantation family, but who had suffered through unforgettable life-changing events and terrible personal loss as a direct result of the American Civil War that had finally ended after 4 years of turmoil and devastation. Yet now, after the ink has scarcely dried on his claim to the title of Lord Fairfax and through no fault of his own, marriage to a total stranger was suddenly being thrust upon him; and because he is an honorable man, he reluctantly accepts the responsibility of saving a woman from social ruin or worse. He never planned on the marriage so in the beginning he's a little cranky and resentful about his sacrifice and not above voicing his irritation to Veronica. At the start, Montgomery and Veronica have some trouble settling into their unexpected marriage, but as the story progresses we witness the characters slowly starting to grow closer. The author shows us how they're first drawn together by physical attraction, with a healthy dose of lust, but the blazing heat of passion and desire gradually melds into something more, and we see it give rise to deeper feelings of tenderness, devotion, and love. Veronica learns the secrets of the marriage bed under Montgomery's passionate, but gentle tutelage, and finds them to be exciting and wickedly delightful, unlike anything her aunt had told her to expect. Montgomery learns he's married to a woman of surprisingly fiery passions and also finds solace in Veronica's warm, welcoming embrace. Ms. Ranney writes her character's physical intimacies and love scenes, or as Veronica calls it "relations" in a way that is completely and superbly romantic, refreshingly honest and tasteful, yet, substantially detailed to satisfy the more sensualistic of readers. I can tell you Montgomery and Veronica weren't thinking of England or the Queen while they were making love, and neither was I. :) With each other's help Montgomery and Veronica face their personal demons and begin to heal old wounds. Soon their sense of anguish, guilt and sorrow starts to fade, and as hearts begin to mend, hopefulness gently tiptoes into edge of their consciousness allowing them to see a light at the end of the tunnel. a flicker of optimism and the twinkle of a brighter future together as man and wife. We readers are there for that too and we revel in their happiness.

    Highly Recommended

    1866 is a very good year. A BORROWED SCOT takes us from the streets of London to the beauty & wilds of Scotland. We meet Veronica Moira MacLeod and Montgomery Fairfax in a most unexpected and intriguing situation. Veronica quickly became a favourite of mine. She is adventurous and spirited. While Montgomery is bold and direct, though troubled and haunted by his past. The interactions between the two are honest, amusing, frustrated and seductive. The story dips into some very interesting areas of history which I relished. A BORROWED SCOT is a delicious read.

    Virginia gentleman reborn in Bonny Scotland

    "A Borrowed Scot", by Karen Ranney, begins with a daring rescue, and the story line remains well-paced. Montgomery Fairfax, native of Virginia, now finds himself the reluctant 11th Lord of Fairfax. When a mission to find information suddenly becomes a rescue mission, Montgomery has no honorable choice other than to save lovely Veronica MacLeod from her own dangerous misstep. He soon finds himself a disgruntled bridegroom, pressured by Veronica's family into making her his wife. Veronica has long wanted to escape her suffocating and controlling relatives. Marriage to Lord Fairfax is a way out of her situation, but what issues will she face as the wife of her sometimes silent and secretive new husband? Veronica's "gift", her ability to read the inner emotions of others, shows her that her husband is a man in deep emotional conflict. She is as attracted to Montgomery as he is to her, and his passion as a lover makes her long for a deeper connection with the man she has married. Will the "borrowed Scot" stay in Scotland and claim his heritage, or will the call of the land of his birth be to strong to resist? Karen Ranney has written a passionate and touching romance. Once you have your "borrowed Scot", you will be most unwilling to let him go!
