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.

The biggest complaint I have lately with Karen Ranney books is the cheesy covers the publisher puts on them. The one on SOLD TO A LAIRD was almost enough to turn me off but I like Karen Ranney enough not to judge a book by its cover and anyway she's not to blame for it. As to the story, the heroine did not strike me as cold, but rather repressed by her upbringing, and the hero is to die for. Sensitive and a hunk. What more could you want? The author develops the romance and love slowly with none of that unrealistic immediate sex in a closet kind of situation. Ranney makes you feel the love developing and it is romantic, not just lustful. And she writes far better than the majority of romance novelists.

She's done it again! Kept my interest from the first two sentences, which grabbed my attention, and kept my interest through the book. I fell in love with the main male character, Douglas, in this story from the first. Self made man, with an easy smile and an open, warm personality. Sarah was so confused and unbending, untrusting, and naive, that I was beginning to wonder if anything would develop between the two! Several twists and turns which is always helpful in a good story. I would recommend Ms. Ranney's books to anyone.

I disagree with the above review. I also love Karen Ranney and there are a few of her books that did not click with me. I really loved this one. The heroine was not cold, she protected herself by reining in her emotions. She was vulnerable and she needed a hero who could break through that shield and get to the person beneath. Douglas was a great hero. The Duke was a bit of a caricature, but it still worked.

I have only recently began reading Karen Ranney, the first being Devil Wears Tartan. And since that book, two more have released and I've rushed out to buy both...A Scotsman in Love (which by the way, is one of my top historical reads. Loved that book!) and now this one, Sold to a Laird.

In Sold to a Laird, Lady Sarah is the daughter of a Duke. Her father raised her with fierce strictness and no love at all. She is forced by her father to marry a stranger, Douglas Eston, in order to spare her dying mother from a trip to her homeland of Scotland. Lady Sarah appears cold and emotionless, but Douglas Eston warms her bit by slow bit. It's a sensual game that Eston plays with Sarah, and one that undoubtedly left me in awe of the amount of emotional intensity some of their scenes are filled with.

Sarah struck me as an honest, innocent young woman. Her fears and emotions towards Eston didn't feel like they were coming from a naive woman, but an unknowing, inexperienced one. I've read books where the heroine had no clue what took place between a man and a woman or the desires that could rise up and consume them and they seemed a bit much. A bit over the top. Not very believable. But in this book, I found myself saddened by, and wholly believing Sarah's lack of knowledge and her fight to deny the passions Douglas begins to fill her with.

This book, as with the previous two books I've read, has such a somber mood that really makes your heart ache for the characters. Douglas was the epitome of heroes for Sarah, holding her and comforting her when she most needed it, simply being there for her, understanding her. He took into consideration her upbringing and accepted her for who she was.

Lady Sarah was a lady in need of saving and Douglas was just the man to do it. As heroes go he fit the bill he took the cautious approach with Sarah and planted seeds of wonder and doubt as to what Sarah's perceptions had been in the past and introduced her to a new and more fulfilling role. The introduction to her family in Scotland added more texture to her personality and brought Sarah and Douglas closer and more complete as a couple. The role the Duke played in the story was pathetic and ended with as it should leaving him to wallow in his degradation. All in all an entertaining story.

This is my first K. Ranney book and even though I feel it missed it's mark by more than a few miles, I'll probably....most likely...maybe give her another shot. About the book- - first, I loved the characters in this book. Loved D. Estons sensitivity, knowledge and wisdom. However the two main characters were vastly underdeveloped. KR could've done so much better giving us more insight into Douglas...(do we even know his age? ..or Sarah's for that matter??) Secondly, what's up with the title"..Douglas is no Laird and Sarah basically wasn't sold. Thirdly, the visit to Sarahs' G'father was confusing at best. Are we to believe Sarah's mother had an incestuous affair?!? Can someone enlighten me???? I still don't know!! I've read and reread the chapter where Sarah meets Brendan, (a cousin that looks just like her)...and his father (Michael) is Sarahs' uncle...so...what gives? Major yuck factor there. Even with the weak plot and story line, even with the under developed characters...I guess I'm a sucker for dumb under developed, weak romance drivel because I did find the book somewhat entertaining to a "2 star" degree.
