Book Description

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

Ellice Traylor has a secret. Beneath her innocent exterior beats an incredibly passionate and imaginative heart. She has been pouring all of her frustrated virginal fantasies into a scandalous manuscript. But when her plans for her future are about to be derailed by her mother's matrimonial designs, she takes matters into her own hands.

Ross Forster, the Earl of Gladsden, has spent his life creating order out of chaos. He expects discipline and calm from those around him. What he does not expect is a beautiful, thoroughly maddening stowaway in his carriage.

But when Ross discovers Ellice's secret book, he finds he can't stop thinking about what other fantasies the disarming virgin can dream up. He has the chance to learn when a compromising position forces them to wed. But can the uptight Earl survive a life with his surprising new wife? And how will the hero of Ellice's fantasies compare to the husband of her reality?

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.

‘The Virgin of Clan Sinclair’ is the third book in the Clan Sinclair series, and we finally get a better look at Ellice Traylor, sister-in-law of Virginia [Traylor] Sinclair who was the heroine of the first book, ‘The Devil of Clan Sinclair’.

I must say I was a bit put off by this heroine. At times I liked her naiveté, and at times I found it irritating. For some reason I just couldn’t get the ‘feel’ of her. She was cool, yet warm; serious, yet funny; virgin, yet knowledgeable enough of sensuality to write some ‘steamy’ stuff. In the end I had to admit to myself that while I admired her tenaciousness and determination to write and publish a book, a very naughty book, I had a very hard time understanding her fully.

Ross Forster, the Earl of Gladsden is one of those heroes that are Alpha with some of the Beta tendencies that are hidden way beneath their exterior, making him much more complex and interesting. For someone like him, who values order and peace in his life, something he actually worked hard to do despite his personal family problems, meeting Ellice and discovering the woman beneath the virgin was something he didn’t expect nor want, yet couldn’t help but give into the overwhelming attraction to her.

Bottom line, I liked the story, but not as much as the first two books, even though this one did make me laugh out loud more than the other two. If you’re a fan of this author, this is a must read, but if you’ve never read her before, I’d suggest you start this series with the first book, that way by the time you get to this novel, you’ll be familiar with her writing style and voice, so you’ll enjoy this story more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous ending to the series. My favourite! June 4, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
ARC received from the publishers in exchange for my honest review, and as part of the blog tour.

The Virgin of Clan Sinclair is the third in a series by Karen Ranney. I’ve read them all and loved every single one. This one more. Some readers found that they lost interest as the stories progressed, but I’m seem to have thought differently. At the end of my review for the second book, The Witch of Clan Sinclair, I did say Ellice Traylor was next and that she was the quiet one, but that usually the quiet ones were the ones to watch for. And I was right!

Ellice is timid, reserved and basically―I’ve thought throughout the series―a wallflower. She has reason to be, though, as I would have. No one likes being compared to the ‘wonderful’ dead sister. No one would like to constantly be told that Eudora would always act the lady; Eudora knew exactly what to do in any situation; she was just made of gold―blah, blah, blah. Seriously, Enid actually started to grate on me. It infuriated me that Ellice kept quiet for so long throughout the book, but I guess in the end, one always respected one's parents, but still. She resented it, deep down inside, and hated every single word uttered by her mother regarding Eudora. Which mother would do that to a child? I actually held a grudge toward Enid, one that even by the end of the book had not dissipated in the least. That’s okay, because I didn’t read the book for Enid, I read it for Ellice’s story.

In this installment, Enid decides it’s time to find Ellice a husband, something she’s not at all keen on. She has a secret, and quite a scandalous one.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great end to the series! May 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Originally published at Rookie Romance.

The Virgin of Clan Sinclair is the third book in the Clan Sinclair series, and I have thoroughly enjoyed all of them.

Ellice is an absolutely delightful heroine, and so utterly relatable. She's intelligent and has a vivid imagination, which leads to her writing a rather erotic book and she dreams of publishing it. Ellice is used to being scolded and lectured by her overbearing mother, who unfavourably compares Ellice to her deceased sister, Eudora. This affects how Ellice sees herself, but doesn't stop her from being the funny, insightful and passionate woman she really is when she meets the right man- Ross.
Ross is a man with tight control on his emotions and avoids scandal at all costs to try to restore the reputation of his title after the tarnishing his father gave it. Ross was hurt in his previous marriage and has no inclination to remarry, until he's caught in a compromising situation with Ellice. Ross is a passionate man, who can be gentle and teasing when his defenses are lowered. He doesn't want to be ruled by his carnal urges and end up following in his father's footsteps, which is something he fears with Ellice.

I loved the chemistry between Ross and Ellice. They steamed up my kindle when they were together and even surprised themselves with the force of their passion. I loved how Ellice is so innocent sometimes but this sensual side of her is released around Ross.

This is a delightful romance that I had really been looking forward to, and is a great way to finish off the series. I loved the glimpses we get into the lives of Mairi and Logan, and Macrath and Virginia, who were in the previous books.
Karen Ranney does a wonderful job of bringing life to these characters and making them so darn likable. I can't wait to see what is next from this author.

*I received a review copy from the publisher, via Edelweiss, for my honest opinion. Thank you!

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
