Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Ranney excels at creating Scottish-set romances filled with delicious plots and complicated, engaging characters. Her take on a Cinderella twist may seem familiar, yet Ranney infuses her story with depth of emotions and sensuality.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
“A riveting fairy-tale story in a beautiful castle in the Scottish Highlands in 1861…The development of…romance is intense and captivating as Alex and Lorna discover mutual passion…This promising series inception is sure to garner attention from fans of historicals.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“A unique and enchanting riff on the age-old Cinderella tale. Readers who can’t get enough of hunky Highland heroes will love this enticing.” Booklist
“[With] Ranney’s ability to create unusual and complex characters…both are charmingly flawed, and both grow during the story. There are also several secondary characters with interesting story arcs, such as the dowager duchess and the maid, Nan, who is a true friend to Lorna.” Kirkus Reviews
“Tim Campbell’s agreeable narration should satisfy a wide audience looking for a tale with both seductive scenes and classic romance…Campbell succeeds in depicting each of the characters uniquely with appropriate accents and pitch during dialogue…Come for the explicit scenes but stay for a conventional love story reminiscent of Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew.AudioFile
