Intro: I took a bit of a break from blogging during the holiday. My family tends to be pretty crazy busy during the holiday with all of the cooking and family flooding the house and such so I figured that would be a perfect time to take a bit of a breather. And then I got an Xbox for Christmas and got majorly distracted by Assassin’s Creed because I am a nerd. I did manage to read Return to Clan Sinclair though and I liked it quite a bit.
Heroine: Ceana-I am not opposed to novellas but sometimes when I read a novella I encounter a character that I wish had gotten the full book treatment. This is true about both Ceana and Bruce. But still, I loved Ceana. She was a compelling heroine with a strong voice.
Hero: Bruce-I loved him so much. He initially comes across as so shallow. I wondered if I was going to be able to find any depth to his character at all. But his backstory is tragic and heartbreaking and…I just loved him.
Chemistry: These two were so utterly perfect for each other in a completely mismatched kind of way. In no universe, would I think that Bruce and Ceana would be good together but they were so perfect. They were the complete opposites but it worked.
Karen Ranney began writing when she was five. Her first published work was The Maple Leaf, read over the school intercom when she was in the first grade. In addition to wanting to be a violinist (her parents had a special violin crafted for her when she was seven), she wanted to be a lawyer, a teacher, and, most of all, a writer. Though the violin was discarded early, she still admits to a fascination with the law, and she volunteers as a teacher whenever needed. Writing, however, has remained the overwhelming love of her life.
