Intro: I am so sorry for my absence on the blog. My dog, Rambo, had a bit of a health scare. I was terrified. He was fine. So to distract myself, as usual, I read and I read a lot. I’ve been reading many Highlander romances—because I have also become obsessed with Outlander both the TV show and the books. And I did love Scotsman of My Dreams. Quite a bit.
Heroine: Minerva-I really liked her. She was so lively and opinionated. She never bored me which I can’t say about many heroines. But she had layers and I found her very complex and interesting to get to know.
Hero: Dalton-I absolutely loved him. He was a rake and a bit of a scoundrel who came back wounded from the Civil War. I found him to be one of the more interesting heroes that I have come across in a good long while.
Chemistry: They had a little bit of the Beauty and the Beast type storyline going. And I am a huge fan of that. They weren’t quite angsty but had a sort of “hate to love” thing going and it really worked. They started in a bad place but grew to love each other.
Conclusion: I absolutely loved this book. As I do many of Karen Ranney’s books. It was the perfect distraction during a particularly difficult time and I think that made me love it even more. I am a particular fan of the “hate to love” romance trope so this one was just perfect.
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.
