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.

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.
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.Read more ›
This first book in Ms. Ranney's series doesn't come close to the two above, but it's still a very sweet read so I'm giving it five stars just because. The story of the young Ian MacRae - half Scottish and half English - forever torn between his heritage with his father being an English Earl and his beautiful mother being the daughter of the laird of the MacRae Clan, one wonders how he will ever find his way through the maze.
Eleven year old Ian and his mother spend two months of each year at the Gilmuir castle, the stronghold of the MacRaes' where he is fast friends with siblings - Fergus, James and Leitus. Young Ian loves Leitus with a steadfast love. Then, during one of their visits, tragedy strikes and Ian's life will never be the same.Read more ›
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.
