Unwrapping a Review of THE WITCH OF CLAN SINCLAIR, a Clan Sinclair novel by Karen Ranney

Not too long ago, I read and reviewed THE DEVIL OF CLAN SINCLAIR, book one in the Clan Sinclair series by Karen Ranney. Although my review wasn’t as favorable as some may have liked it to be, it didn’t keep me from moving on to the next book in the series, THE WITCH OF CLAN SINCLAIR, and oh, my goodness, am I glad it didn’t. And how about that cover - it's so gorgeous!

***Print copy received as part of a giveaway presented by the author and I am happily sharing my honest and unscripted review.

Blurb for THE WITCH OF CLAN SINCLAIR:

The next sizzling romance in New York Times bestselling author Karen Ranney's Clan Sinclair series...

Logan Harrison is looking for a wife. As the Lord Provost of Edinburgh, he needs a conventional and diplomatic woman who will stand by his side and help further his political ambitions. He most certainly does not need Mairi Sinclair, the fiery, passionate, fiercely beautiful woman who tries to thwart him at every turn. But if she's so wrong for him, why can't he stop kissing her? He is completely bewitched.

Mairi Sinclair has never met anyone like Logan Harrison, the perfect example of everything she finds wrong with the world. He's also incredibly handsome, immensely popular, and impossible to resist. His kisses inflame her and awaken a passion she can barely control.

Can two people who are at such odds admit to a love that would bind them together for life?

*               *               *              *              *

Mairi Sinclair is a woman before her time. She’s working in a man’s world in a man’s job and must hide behind her brother’s name in order to do so, but the success or failure of the Edinburgh Gazette is hers, and hers alone. When confronted with a man’s world reaction to wishing to enter a man’s domain to hear an author speak, her reaction is one which starts something she never expected – a revolution of change and a change of heart about love.

Logan Harrison has a high respect for society, and for women, but everything he believed he knew about women flies out the window when he encounters the stubborn and incorrigible, Mairi Sinclair. Planning a continuing future career in politics, as the Lord Provost of Edinburgh, Logan believes he must find the perfect politician’s wife but when his attraction to the least likely candidate keeps him entangled, he knows his heart must lead the way if he can convince her of the same.

THE WITCH OF CLAN SINCLAIR by Karen Ranney had me hooked from the first pages and kept me turning the pages as these two incredible characters both denied and pursued one another, and their uncontrollable attraction to each other. I loved the strength and passion of Mairi Sinclair, and the incredible gentleness of this amazing man, Logan Harrison, who commanded respect and wielded power effortless. Karen created a story which, while it centered on Mairi and Logan’s relationship, like the spokes of a wheel, the secondary characters had their own trials and tribulations, which gave the story depth and humility. When trouble ensues, it’s not just one who siphons out the culprit, or culprits but instead, it’s as an extension of one that the many discover the truth. The cast of THE WITCH OF CLAN SINCLAIR make this story rich, full, complete, and allow a very romantic happily-ever-after for Mairi and Logan.

I highly recommend THE WITCH OF CLAN SINCLAIR, book two of the Clan Sinclair series by Karen Ranney. If you didn’t read the first book, it’s okay, this one works well as a stand-alone but if you truly want to know the characters as a whole, and understand the dynamics of the many, it will make the reading of this one so much better. THE WITCH OF CLAN SINCLAIR will entertain, inspire, outrage, and leave you feeling so contented and happy for Mairi and Logan, you’ll want the story to continue long after it’s finished.

Happy Reading Everyone!

Great review Amy!
I happen to LOVE Karen Ranney books, they are just THE best out there for me.
She has a way with her stories that make me feel like I am right there with the characters.
She is my one author who I happen to own all of her historical romance books and this series is proudly displayed on my bookshelf too. :-)
