Book Review-The Devil of Clan Sinclair-Karen Ranney

Friday, July 4, 2014


My favorite genre is Historical Romance--hands down although I can see where you might get a different opinion from the reviews I've done! Obviously I also love Medical Thrillers, Mysteries, Futuristic (Dystopian), Contemporary Romance and have been known to read everything else as well. But it is really Historical Romance that has always been my first love! So when I read on Teresa Medieros Sweet Treats email where she tells us what books are on sale from authors she and I love! (yes I am subscribed to her email because she is one of my favorite author's). I don't know about today--but yesterday (Sunday) The Devil of Clan Sinclair was on sale for 1.99--I bought it and read it all in the same day. There are a couple of others on that short list that I am interested in but will have to wait. The Devil of Clan Sinclair is the first in a series so I will try to get them first.

This isn't the usual Highland Scotsman--Macrath Sinclair was brought up in Edinborough in a poor family. He decided that he would never be poor again and amassed a fortune first by expanding his father's newspaper (broadsheet) business and then by inventing an ice machine!

Virginia is American, the only child of a multimillionaire who has decided he wants to be the father of a Countess so forces her to cross the sea to find a husband. Macrath and Virginia meet and fall in love-but Dad has other plans. Remember that back then woman had no say in who they married. She marries the man her father specifies, but her heart and soul still belongs to Macrath.

What happens next to these star-crossed lovers--will they ever come to terms with each other? Will she ever tell him the truth? Yes, I know all the answers--but am not going to tell you!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

True love blossoms in the Scottish Highlands in the steamy historical romance The Devil of Clan Sinclair, the first book in a new series by New York Times bestselling author Karen Ranney.

When Countess of Barrett Virginia Traylor’s husband dies without an heir, she’s left in dire circumstances. The estate will go to his cousin unless Virginia can produce a son before the allotted time is up. In desperation, she turns to Macrath Sinclair, the self-made Scottish millionaire she loved before her father arranged her failed marriage.

After a whirlwind affair results in her bearing a child, Macrath discovers he’s become a father and steals the baby away.

While Virginia tries desperately to convince him to relinquish her son, Macrath realizes that he’ll do anything in his power not to give up the son…or the boy’s maddening, irresistible mother.

About the Author: (from Amazon)


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 karen@karenranney.com.

You're just like me. I'm a big Historical Romance junkie and my Kindle is loaded with tons of them. Here is another must read for me. I'm actually going on Amazon right now to download this. I'm sure I'll be done by tomorrow. Thanks for the review.

Holly @ Woman Tribune said...

History, romance, and multi-millionaires! What could go wrong? Haha! This sounds like a really interesting book. I haven't read a ton of historical fiction, but what I have read I have enjoyed, so I should probably give the genre more chances.

I used to read Historical Romances and enjoyed them. I just don't have time to relax and read lately. Hopefully in the fall things will slow down.

Lalia Frolick said...

The book sounds interesting! I don't think I'd ever read it though... I kind of avoid books with covers like these like the plague ;)! Thanks for sharing, though! I love books with suspense and conflict like this.
