Overview

The next sizzling romance in New York Times bestselling author Karen Ranney's Clan Sinclair series

Logan Harrison is looking for a wife. As the Lord Provost of Edinburgh, he needs a conventional and diplomatic woman who will stand by his side and help further his political ambitions. He most certainly does not need Mairi Sinclair, the fiery, passionate, fiercely beautiful woman who tries to thwart him at every turn. But if she's so wrong for him, why can't he stop kissing her? He is completely bewitched.

Mairi Sinclair has never met anyone like Logan Harrison, the perfect example of everything she finds wrong with the world. He's also incredibly handsome, immensely popular, and impossible to resist. His kisses inflame her and awaken a passion she can barely control.

Can two people who are at such odds admit to a love that would bind them together for life?

Even readers who believe that “there’s no more stirring sight... than a Scot in a kilt” will find that the meandering second Clan Sinclair historical—which, despite its title, has not the slightest touch of the supernatural—leaves them wanting. In 1872 Scotland, Mairi Sinclair, editor of the Edinburgh Gazette, is denied entrance to the Edinburgh Press Club due to her gender. The do-nothing response of Logan Harrison, Lord Provost of Edinburgh, encourages Mairi to pen a combative broadside, which results in a loss of subscribers and intimidated sources. But when Mairi arrives at Logan’s house to confront him, she inexplicably meets Logan’s dare to view the “truss” under his kilt, beginning a rather odd flirtation that leaves Mairi, Logan, and the reader wondering what is going on. After Mairi spends the night at Logan’s not once but twice, she still refuses his marriage proposal, suggesting a heroine with a muddled understanding of what she wants. (May)

Meet the Author

Karen Ranney wanted to be a writer from the time she was five years old and filled her Big Chief tablet with stories. People in stories did amazing things and she was too shy to do anything amazing. Years spent in Japan, Paris, and Italy, however, not only fueled her imagination but proved she wasn't that shy after all.

Now a New York Times and USA Today bestseller, she prefers to keep her adventures between the covers of her books. Karen lives in San Antonio, Texas.

The Witch of Clan Sinclair was a fantastic historical romance. It had a strong heroine, a charming hero, a mysterious saboteur. And, I loved every bit of it. Mairi was a lovely character. She was strong, determined, and caring. My only problem with her was that I didn't understand why she was so hesitant about Logan, when he definitely proved himself as a good man. I got that she had a bad experience with a suitor before, but I think it stretched out too far. Overall, though, I really liked her. Logan was super sweet. He was a very clever, loyal, and determined man. Nothing was going to stop him from winning over the woman he loved. I really liked how intent he was on winning Mairi over. I totally adored him. I thought he was perfect. The romance was great. Mairi and Logan were so sweet together. Both were determined and strong and they definitely met their match in each other. And, the sparks were constantly flying between them, whether they were fighting or...something else ;) There was definitely a lot of chemistry there. I thought they were lovely together. The plot was fast paced and I was hooked the entire way through. There were tons of thrills as our couple tried to find out who was sabotaging Mairi and that kept me riveted. I suspected who it turned out to be, but the full extent of it was still a surprise. I really enjoyed the story and I thought the ending was lovely. Can't wait to read more from this wonderful series! The Witch of Clan Sinclair was a brilliant historical romance. I really enjoyed reading it. Everything from the romance, to the mystery was all wonderful. Romance lovers, this is a book you have to read.  *I received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

Karen Ranney does a great job of creating stories that make me smile! The conversations are entertaining, and the love scenes romantic without being lewd. It doesn't read as a fairy tale, but you still want the same romance in your own life.

Loved this one and can't wait to read the third, even if the first wasn't as good. I may not have thrilled over the first in the series but this one, well, Karen knocked it out of the park. I loved it. Mairi Sinclair is a woman before her time. She’s working in a man’s world in a man’s job and must hide behind her brother’s name in order to do so, but the success or failure of the Edinburgh Gazette is hers, and hers alone. When confronted with a man’s world reaction to wishing to enter a man’s domain to hear an author speak, her reaction is one which starts something she never expected – a revolution of change and a change of heart about love. Logan Harrison has a high respect for society, and for women, but everything he believed he knew about women flies out the window when he encounters the stubborn and incorrigible, Mairi Sinclair. Planning a continuing future career in politics, as the Lord Provost of Edinburgh, Logan believes he must find the perfect politician’s wife but when his attraction to the least likely candidate keeps him entangled, he knows his heart must lead the way if he can convince her of the same. THE WITCH OF CLAN SINCLAIR by Karen Ranney had me hooked from the first pages and kept me turning the pages as these two incredible characters both denied and pursued one another, and their uncontrollable attraction to each other. I loved the strength and passion of Mairi Sinclair, and the incredible gentleness of this amazing man, Logan Harrison, who commanded respect and wielded power effortless. Karen created a story which, while it centered on Mairi and Logan’s relationship, like the spokes of a wheel, the secondary characters had their own trials and tribulations, which gave the story depth and humility. When trouble ensues, it’s not just one who siphons out the culprit, or culprits but instead, it’s as an extension of one that the many discover the truth. The cast of THE WITCH OF CLAN SINCLAIR make this story rich, full, complete, and allow a very romantic happily-ever-after for Mairi and Logan. I highly recommend THE WITCH OF CLAN SINCLAIR, book two of the Clan Sinclair series by Karen Ranney. If you didn’t read the first book, it’s okay, this one works well as a stand-alone but if you truly want to know the characters as a whole, and understand the dynamics of the many, it will make the reading of this one so much better. THE WITCH OF CLAN SINCLAIR will entertain, inspire, outrage, and leave you feeling so contented and happy for Mairi and Logan, you’ll want the story to continue long after it’s finished. ***print copy courtesy of the author without a promise of review but this is my honest and unscripted review.

What I love most about this book is the main character. Sometimes you read books and you can't connect with the characters, but Karen Ranney did just that! I also love the back stories on who she based her inspiration on towards the end of the book, too! A definite must read!!!!!

A yummy, stubborn and political KILT wearing Scotsman tangles horns with a rude, argumentative and antagonistic Scottish female newspaper Editor and Edinburgh will never be the same! Mairi Sinclair is a driven and determined woman who is living her dream of running the family's newspaper, The Edinburgh Gazette. She is the editor, writer, lone reporter and anything else that needs to be done. Mairi lives with her Cousin Fenella (who is her companion and only friend), her cranky and penny pinching Cousin Robert and her driver, James, who is also her brother's spy. She wants to make a difference and has also hated when MALES think they control the whole world. Mairi has decided the woman's right to vote will be her cause and joins the SLNA, Scottish Ladies National Association, to do it. Logan Harrison is the Lord Provost of Edinburgh and loves his life, but he misses his privacy and day of simply nothingness. His secretary, Thomas, outlines and plans all his days with his duties, meetings, committees and even his social calendar. Logan wants to run for Parliament and he decides a wife is a must. His wife needs to be intelligent, socially gracefully, demure and biddable, but love isn't necessary or even wanted. These two collided at an all-male Edinburgh Press Club and she is so angered by his rudeness and controlling maleness that she writes a rude poem about his all-male attitude and prints it for all of Edinburgh to see! Logan counters with a very Official Lord Provost call to The Edinburgh Gazette and they are nose to nose, toe to toe and insults fly! When they are in the same room, that room has a "JUST DO ME" vibe for all to see and feel. Logan calls her ignorant, narrow minded, fixated, prejudiced and belligerent! Mairi calls him pompous, rude, a male idiot and hopeless. Logan thinks she is beautiful, has stunning blue eyes that he can't forget, a body that he craves and has a chin as stubborn as a battering ram. Mairi thinks he is sexy Highlander of old, with a sword, has tousled and sexy hair, lips made for kissing and when he wears a KILT she wants to run her hand underneath to feels what under it. When Mairi is attacked at a SLNA, he takes her to his home, calls a doctor and gives her all his tender loving care and then drugs her. They fight, rip one another's clothes off, fight some more and when push comes to shove, Mairi flees the city. Will Logan finally realized that Mairi is other half? Can Mairi ever stop running from her past? How will Edinburgh react to Mairi and Logan together? Who is the crazy madman terrorizing Mairi with letters? When will Scottish woman get the right to vote? This was the second book of the Sinclair clan. The hero and heroine were like a propane tank and blowtorch, explosive and great fun to read about. Mairi was a great WOMAN of the 1860 and demands the equal rights of women and to vote just like a man can. Ms. Rainey sparked me to Google to learn the history of Women Suffragettes in Scotland and ladies it sucked royal! You should Google it yourselves and see what all the females of the past did to easy the road for the females of today. Logan was a amazing KILT wearing hero with a strong sense of responsibility and, I think, a male who actually believed in the equal rights for all, whether man, woman or child. The sexual tension rocked in this book, but I wanted a few more and steamier scenes. Ms. Ranney had a great storyline, a hero and heroine that would either kill one another or were jumping one another bones, an evil nemesis and a great cause with Women Rights, but the ending was to easy and predictable. Ms. Ranney is still one of my favorite authors, but this isn't one of her best book. I give the book a score of 3 fibers up and 7 toes.

Loved it The Witch of Clan Sinclair is the second book in Clan Sinclair series.This is the fourth book I am reading by Mrs. Karen Ranney and love it.Logan Harrison, the lord Provost of Edinburgh is looking for a conventional and diplomatic wife to help him in his future politic ambitions.Mairi Sinclair is a beautiful, passionate and stubborn heroine with broken heart from her first love.Logan is so adorable and perfect hero but I still enjoy how Mairi thwart him at every turn. The story written so beautifully that you don't want to put the book down. One of the quote that I love in this book" It is time for women to stand in the sunlight to say to every single man," Look at me, I count, I matter, I think,therefore my thoughts should be heard." Thank you Mrs. Karen Ranney for writing great books
