About 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.

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. *ARC provided by publisher

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.

Love the fact that she first meets the hero as she is ghost hunting! It was endearing they became sortof odd ball friends before lovers.

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.

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!
