Meet the Author

Karen Ranney is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of dozens of historical romances, most of them set in Scotland. 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, she also 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 when needed. Writing, however, remains the overwhelming love of her life.

    It wasn't the best novel I have ever read but I liked the how en

    It wasn't the best novel I have ever read but I liked the how entertaining it was because it let me use my imagination. What I did love a lot about this novel was how real the landscape of Scotland was because there aren't a lot of novels that show you what was really happening in Scotland at that time. That part of this book I loved.

    The characters were definitely strong although at times I grew weary of our heroine. Overall though the characters kept my attention and moved the story along.

    I'm definitely going to read the rest of the series.

    well written Scottish historical romance

    In 1746 Scotland, the Duke of Cumberland ordered Colonel Alec Landers to stamp out the Highland insurrection. Alec spent many of his youthful summers here at the home of his mother, viciously killed by another clan. The English earl never forgave any Scot for that murder including the women he still loves and first kissed at eleven (and received a slap for it), Leitis MacRae. <P>Alec uses Leitis as a hostage to keep the area calm, but soon learns the truth behind his mother¿s death. Feeling guilty for his butchery at Inverness, Alec masquerades as Raven to protect his matriarchal people from his sire¿s side. As Alec and Leitis fall in love, he risks everything to keep her safe from a personal enemy who wants he and his beloved dead. <P>ONE MAN¿S LOVE is a well written Scottish historical romance starring a hero caught between two worlds and a heroine filled with love trying to help him choose her side. The story line is exciting though many in the audience will feel they have visited mid eighteenth century Scotland many times before. Karen Ranney is a wonderful author and sub-genre fans will enjoy her opening gamut in the Highland Lords series. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Meet a whole new family

    I really enjoy meeting new families of highlanders. Their stories are always intriguing. You must read this series.

    A little too dramatic for me...

    I read My Beloved (which I'd give 4 stars)and eagerly bought this book, One Man's Love. However, this novel was overly dramatic for me. I want a story to flow with a rhythm of highs and lows, not just make me feel like I have heavy weight on my chest. It appears to be the author's style, so if you like gothic-type romance, Ms. Ranney's for you. She does a good job with interesting facts about the period and really puts you in the climate of the times. I just couldn't get past the overdone melodrama of this particular story.
