""Filled with angst, passion and suspense, Ranney's first Wicked Widow tale delivers a carefully plotted story."" ---RT Book Reviews

From the Back Cover

To Dance with the Devil . . .

For Virginia Traylor, Countess of Barrett, marriage was merely the vehicle to buy her father a title. Widowhood, however, brings a host of problems. For her husband deliberately spent the money intended for Virginia and her in-laws, leaving them penniless— unless she produces an heir. Desperate and confused, Virginia embarks on a fateful journey that brings her to the doorstep of the only man she's ever loved . . .

He's known as the Devil, but Macrath Sinclair doesn't care. He moved to a tiny Scottish village in hopes of continuing his work as an inventor and starting a family of his own. He bought the house; he chose the woman. Unfortunately, Virginia didn't choose him. Macrath knows he should turn her away now, but she needs him, and he wants her more than ever. Whatever game Virginia's playing, Macrath intends to win— one wickedly seductive deed at a time . . .

More 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 current adventures between the covers of her books. Karen lives in San Antonio, Texas and loves to hear from her readers at

I've been a Karen Ranney fan for many years. One of my all-time favorite HRs is Till Next We Meet. That's why it pains me to dislike this book, but, for some reason, this story feels a bit off. Too many characters, too much deviation from the main romance plot and a romance that doesn't have enough chemistry.

For this book to work, it's important for the reader to feel the initial attraction and love between the mousy, rich American heroine, Virginia Traylor, and the hunky Scottish entrepreneur, Macrath Sinclair, when they first meet in London in 1869. If you can't (and I couldn't) then the rest of the book won't be very satisfying.

They meet, fall in love and talk of marriage. Her father says no and marries her off to a sickly English earl. Marriage is consummated only once, the sickly earl conveniently dies but inconveniently leaves Virginia, his mother, and his sisters in dire straits, with all monies and properties going to the cousin heir.

What happens next is a lot of unethical, unkind behavior of the H and h to each other. (Review may be SPOILERISH in places although much of this is in the book blurb.) Virginia goes to Macrath in Scotland, hoping to get pregnant and pass the child off as her deceased husband's heir (assuming it will be a boy, that is). She doesn't let Macrath in on this. He just thinks she loves him and wants to be with him.

Then she takes off back to England, conveniently pregnant with a boy. After the baby is born, it's Macrath's turn for execrable behavior. When he finds out about the baby, he steals him and takes him back to Scotland. Then, of course, off goes Virginia to retrieve her son.

I've always wanted to read Karen Ranney's books, but I've never had the chance. When the opportunity came to participate in the blog tour, I couldn't say no! Ranney's The Devil of Clan Sinclair was a delightful read!

I'm a big fan of reunited lovers and Ranney's The Devil of Clan Sinclair doesn't disappoint! Writing was engaging and I loved the banter between Macrath and Virginia. I most particularly enjoyed how Ranney introduced us to the couple and especially how their romance developed and how they were torn apart. Character development was strong, but I couldn't feel much empathy for Virginia especially after she agrees to Enid, her mother-in-law's plan. I know people do crazy things in desperate times, but I just wanted her to show some backbone. Even Enid isn't the strong woman she portrays to be especially when Paul, the Earl of Barrett's former valet comes into play. Paul was a creep of the first order and high-five to Ranney for developing a villain that made me want to hide when he made an appearance. Without a doubt, Macrath steals the show in The Devil of Clan Sinclair! He's a self made man who is happy living his life until an American girl steals his heart. Even after she broke it he still loved her and believed in her until she betrayed his trust.

What I really enjoyed about The Devil of Clan Sinclair is that for once we have a hero who isn't hell bent on revenge when the heroine is right in front of him. Macrath could have turned his heart against Virginia, but he couldn't and I loved that! I loved how quickly the two of them became reacquainted and my heart broke when they were apart. I understand his actions towards the end, which I won't go into detail for spoilers and I don't blame him for taking the stance that he does.

After Countess of Barrett, Virginia Traylor's husband died without an heir, Virginia, his mother and sister were left in desperate straits. All the money Virginia's American father had paid to obtain a title in the family had been spent and tied up into the now entailed estate which would pass down to the Earl's distant cousin. If Virginia could not produce an heir in a short time, she and her female in-laws would be out in the street with no where to turn.

Desperate, Virginia sought out Macrath Sinclair, a self-made Scottish millionaire. The very man she'd fallen in love with while here father had made other plans to sell her for an English title. After seducing Macrath, the man she'd always loved, Virginia left him to return to London whereupon she found she had conceived. Months after her son's birth, Sinclair discovered her betrayal and stole back his son while Virginia was recovering from smallpox. With battle lines drawn - Virginia must try to win her son back and the respect of the man she had always loved.

*** Karen Ranney has always written books with a combination of complex characters, emotional scenarios, and dynamic plots. In THE DEVIL OF CLAN SINCLAIR, she has combined all three into a well told tale that is brimful of lost love, betrayals, deceit, and forgiveness. This was just another example of the genuine creativeness and exquisite prose that seems to flow from the tips of this authors fingertips.

Virginia is at first the innocent and dutiful daughter of a powerfully self made American millionaire, come to England to buy a title - a boastful wealthy man who never thought of his daughter as much more than a tool to satisfy his attempts at grandeur.
