Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

When a violent carriage accident renders young widow Mary Kate unconscious, she ends up in the care of the notorious Earl of Sanderhurst, a man with a wicked reputation and a mysteriously missing wife. The Earl's suspicions that Mary Kate knows something about his wife's disappearance, Mary Kate's unusual "dreams," and a dash of pure evil add to a convoluted plot that combines the darker issues of madness, incest, and murder with the lighter aspects of passion and romance to produce a fast-paced, quite readable story. Ranney's (A Promise of Love, Zebra, 1997) works might also appeal to fans of Mary Balogh.

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.

My Wicked Fantasy is the fourth Ranney book I have read. The first novel was only average and made me shy away from future Ranney purchases. Fortunately when I begin reading a new author, I usually buy at least two of her books to truly test the author's writing capability and style, AND to discover if her style fits my taste in romance reading. I am so glad I purchased that second book. I loved it and the last three Ranney books I have read have all been five star reviews. My Wicked Fantasy is just that - somewhat wicked and certainly a fantasy of the heroine's prior to her meeting the hero.
To truly enjoy this book, you have to suspend reality and just go with believing that the dead can speak to the living. Supernatural novels are usually not my style (although I have loved Dara Joy's books) but this book is only slightly supernatural and well worth ignoring that aspect if it bothers you. This is a historical English novel that involves a penniless widow, Mary Kate Bennett, and a hermit earl, Archer St. John. Mary Kate is searching for remnants of her long lost family and Archer is searching for his wife who disappeared a year ago. These two meet by accident, literally, when the earl's speeding carriage collides with the public coach carrying Mary Kate on the road to London. Mary Kate is badly injured but the earl is not hurt and he stays at a local inn supervising and paying for Mary Kate's medicinal care. During Mary Kate's recovery, she begins to have visions that she knows concerns the Earl of Sanderhurst. Eventually the earl begins to believe that Mary Kate is some sort of con artist in partnership with his missing wife. After all, no one has heard from his wife this past year and their marriage was not a great one.

An amazingly well written novel with mystery, suspense, romance, sex and comic relief. Very intense story and the author eloquently leads us into the lives of the characters as if we are sitting in the same room with them. She describes the surroundings /environment/geography in such detail that it is a moving picture. I read a lot of romance novels and this one is by far and away the best I've ever read. Not just your typical and predictable story line. My only complaint is with the title -- I think that "Wicked Fantasy" has extremely sexual innuendo. The sex was NOT at all predominant -- actually quite restrained. Please don't miss this book!

If this was the first Romance novel I had ever read, I'd be hesitant to read another one soon. Now that makes this book sound terrible, which it wasn't. It just had such slow spots that I just wanted to jump into the story and shake them all. Mary Kate was good hearted but basically a weak-willed wimp. Archer, as the tortured hero, wasn't believable when he finally was smiling and happy. Bernie was my favourite character but she wasn't strong enough to hold the story up. Too long, too drawn out, TOO WORDY. I'm going to try Ranney's earlier books - maybe they were better. Read this if you like slow, tortured Regency.

This was my first Karen Ranney book.

This book could have been a 5 star book if not for 2 flaws. One-the horrible title-My Wicked Fantasy-ugh. Besides the obvious insipidity and predictability of the title-it had nothing to do with the story- the characters were not each other's "fantasy" nor were they all that wicked.

Second-the author is obviously talented but WAY too prosy, too over the top wordy. Meaning-everything that was description was flowery/metaphor filled, BUT the characters conversations were that way as well. They never just talked like normal people do. Everything was a "war of words". Which, can be fun, but like candy, too much is sickening.

That being said-the book was still enjoyable enough to recommend-while I wouldn't pay full price for it, and enough of an inducement to try this author again.

4 stars.

From the very beginning, this book is hard to follow. The transitions from the perspective of one character to the next are so abrupt that it is difficult to know whose thoughts you are reading until several sentences later. I am also not a fan of the paranormal, and this aspect of the book was not contained in the summary I read. However, the author did a great job of developing the romance between the two protagonists, and I enjoyed that portion of the book.

"...but she would walk into the fire gladly, for the sheer joy of being able to remember the flames." Page after page, it's not just Karen Ranney's writing style that haunts the reader, but also haunting character information comes together like puzzle pieces. Pain, romance, sensuality, tenderness, love that transcends time and place...and a mother-in-law who tickles your fantasies. Long after the last word is read, the characters tug at the reader's memory. Haunting...

Many romance readers have become spoiled by zany characters and overly detailed sex scenes. This book works because it tells a simple story. The characters are divine, all though I was disappointed by decisions made by the heroine late in the book. I believe you will enjoy this book.
