New York Times Bestselling Author Karen Ranney’s captivating series concludes with a tale of opposites whose attraction scorches a trail from the Highlands to the glittering halls of London—and courts scandal at every turn . . .
Politics has introduced MP Logan McKnight to many fascinating people, but the lady he encounters on the lands bordering his ancestral Scottish home outshines them all. Eleanor Craig of Hearthmere seats a Thoroughbred like a queen, knows as much about world events as any of his colleagues—and is engaged to one of the worst men Logan knows. She also seems lonely, so Logan brings her a friend. Thus should their acquaintance end, yet it’s only just begun.
The puppy Logan delivers is every bit as irresistible as the man himself. How could this stranger sense the isolation Eleanor suffers among her scheming, snobbish extended family and fiance who control her life? It’s even worse in London—until she begins meeting Logan secretly in a secluded park. Their passionate connection frees Eleanor, body and soul. But discovery threatens disgrace—or worse.
Some authors write their novels, almost as a catharsis of whatever is happening in their lives at that moment. They write no matter what is happening around them........sickness, good or bad weather, a death, flood.......you get the idea. Such are the writing habits of author, Karen Ranney.
Author Ranney has a solid foundation of goodness, believing that we should treat others as we ourselves wish to be treated. It is rare to find an author with such integrity. She believes in the transformative power of niceness and love.....that we have more nice people than ugly ones. She knew from the age of five that she wanted to be a writer. She carried around a big blue book the same as other little girls might have carried a doll.
We all have many conflicts in our lives every day. To be able to defuse those conflicts through the written word is very special to author Ranney. She enjoys throwing her characters into the deep end, showing their flaws, but never having them whine, or having strong women who are not expecting a man to rescue them. And, the men do not blame women for everything wrong in their lives. The author says.......hopefully, my characters always have a deep core of beliefs, but they do not always act in perfect ways...... they are like real people.
