Review

"A writer of rare intelligence and sensitivity." -- Mary Jo Putney

"Karen Ranney writes with power, passion, and dramatic flair." -- Stephanie Laurens

"Ranney is a rich, rare find!" -- Judith Ivory

About 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.


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 karen@karenranney.com.

Customer Reviews

The plot was simple and predictable, even the characters seemed a bit one-dimensional.
Neilisa
Karen Ranney is a wonderful author and sub-genre fans will enjoy her opening gamut in the Highland Lords series.
Harriet Klausner
This book showed a great respect for the history of the Scottish people, while telling a beautiful romance.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
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.

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 him and his beloved dead.

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.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
From the very first pages you will be caught up in the emotional maelstrom of this historical era. I've been known to weep during and at the end of a book - but from the very first pages - oh my God I was hooked. On his eleventh birthday, young Ian MacRae half English, and heir to a British Earldom, and half Scot would never be the same. His mother had been brutally assaulted and killed during her yearly visit to her family. On that day Ian would renounce his Scottish heritage for the brutal clan wars that claimed his beloved mother as the latest casualty.
Years later in Scotland 1746 - after the slaughter at Culloden - the English forces under the command of Cromwell are still persecuting the defeated Scots. Ian, now known as Colonel Alec Landers has come to take over the command at Fort Williams. The clan MacRae that once totaled over 300 was now a mere handful, but in that handful of survivors was the first girl he had ever kissed - Leitus MacRae. She was still the most beautiful girl he had ever seen nor did she recognize the grown up man who had been her childhood friend. She only recognized the hated English uniform and not the man who wore it. Alec/Ian could not come out and let Leitis know who he was as it could cause him his very life if the English knew he was half Scot, and as her enemy she was sworn to hate him. In order to save her uncle, she agreed to become the Colonel's hostage to ensure her uncle's life. But this strange, and though she hated to admit it, handsome and kind man was not easy to understand. He was supposed to be the `Butcher of Inverness' sparing no Scotsman - yet he showed compassion that confused her and his nearness aroused passion she was ashamed of.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book was absolutley wonderful!! I read reviews here on Amazon about Karen Ranney and decided to giver her Scottish Lord's series a try. So, I bought all four of them and couldnt wait to start them. I was not dissappointed! One Man's Love is a beautiful story. The ending, while bittersweet, couldnt have ended any other way than it did, and it brought tears to my eyes. Ian and Lietus are a beautiful couple and shared such an intimate history that more than once it made my eyes misty. I felt for Lietus, when she didnt understand her attraction to The Butcher and her love for Ian. To feel that way for two men has to be a disconcerting feeling, to say the least. Mrs. Ranney made me feel like I was a part of the book and like I was there going through it all with the Scots. The loss of Lietus's family and Ian's mother made me remember that at a time in history things like that actually did happen to the Scots. This book showed a great respect for the history of the Scottish people, while telling a beautiful romance. A great read and another to add to my never ending pile of favorites. Now on to book two of the Scottish Lord's series!

I'm going to confess at the outset that I avoided this book for awhile. I must've known it wouldn't be an easy read, especially judging by the mixed reviews. It is the first book in the Highland Lords series but I'm glad I didn't read it first, else I might've been tempted not to continue. It isn't a light, easy read but it is very real and it describes a particularly difficult time in Scottish history.

+++Minor spoilers+++
One of the negative reviewers laments the inconsistencies of the H's dual character but for me, the author does a great job of explaining why the h didn't see them. She developed the relationship between the H and h well and relied heavily on their pasts.

I cried at the very beautiful ending and I'm now going to go on and read the others in the series.

This story oozes love. You know the mother loves Alec, you know Alec loves Leitis, and you know the MacRaes love their Scotland. You are never in doubt.
Alec is tormented from the battlefield and battles within himself. Leitis is tormented by her losses. The clan is tormented by the threat of extinction. Everything and everybody come together in a desire for preservation.
Ranney treats the characters and the setting lovingly and respectfully. The reader leaves the story educated about the historical period, awed by strength of the Scottish people, and warmed by the love Alec and Leitis share.
