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.

    Captivating.

    Karen Ranney is one of the few writers of this time who can keep you guessing as well as hold your attention throughout the whole story.

    A Cherished Romance

    Alisdair MacRae returns to the ruins of his families castle to find a woman,Iseabal Drummond in need of rescue from a fall. He finds that her father has taken over his families land and is willing only to sell it to Alisadair if he will marry Iseabal. Alisadair does not want a wife, but agrees to the bargain with the idea to obtain an annullment in England. While he is in England he becomes the Earl of Sherbourne and finds that his 'Scottish' marriage is not legal in England. He finds that he has truly grown fond of Iseabal and asks her to marry him again. She accepts and the relationship blossoms into a wonderful love as well as friendship. This is a great book. I read it in 2 days. I highly recommend it.

    enjoyable Scottish historical romance

    In 1775, Nova Scotia ship builder and sea captain Alisdair MacRae learns that Magnus Drummond absconded with his ancestral lands in Scotland when no MacRae claimed the property. Though he had no plans to even see the estate, Alisdair decides to reclaim what is his heritage. To regain the MacRae estate, Alisdair must buy it back from Magnus, but the stipulation includes marrying the laird¿s daughter Iseabal. <P>Alisdair does not want a wife, but accepts the terms. Iseabal sees Alisdair as her hero enabling her to escape from her abusive father. She knows he plans to dump her in London by annulling their vows, but instead of folding she campaigns to earn his love and more important his trust. As Alisdair and Iseabal fall in love, her father pulls one more dastardly deed that leaves the couple wondering can they entrust their soul with the person whom has their heart? <P> Fans of Scottish historical romances will enjoy the passion of the lead characters set in a richly textured eighteenth century Scotland. Iseabal is a wonderful protagonist while Alisdair is a reluctant hero in every sense of the word though he cares intensely about Iseabal¿s plight. The story line is typical of the sub-genre except that the historical depth enables the key duo to turn the pages into a compassionate reading experience. As with the first book of the Highland Lords ONE MAN'S LOVE, WHEN THE LAIRD RETURNS showcases Karen Ranney¿s ability to hook her fans into deeply feeling responsibility for what happens to her characters. <P>Harriet Klausner
