review Scotsman of My Dreams MacIain #2 ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ñ [PDF / Epub] ☉ Scotsman of My Dreams MacIain #2 Author Karen Ranney – Helpyouantib.co.uk In New York Times bestselling author Karen Ranney's second novel in her breathtaking series an unconventional woman and a former scoundrel embark The Earl of Rathsmere yet she is intrigued by the torrid rumors she has heard about him and the fierce attraction pulling her toward himDalton does not count on Minerva's persistence or the desire she awakens in him compelling him to discover her brother's fate But when danger surrounds them Dalton fears he will lose the tantalizing thoroughly unpredictable woman he has come to love. As an author Ranney has always been one of my favorites Majority of her books I have loved others I have liked but without a single doubt lingering within my mind I have found Scotsman of My Dreams to be one of best romantic; love stories I've ever readIf you love romance as much as I do than I am happy to reveal that this book is nothing shy except pure passion The attraction between Dalton and Minerva was a spark that could not be denied I absolutely love an author that bring a romance novel to new heights the way that Ranney did this story The plot was eual to the romance with its many twists and turns of mystery I think the mystery within the pages worked well with the balance of the romance because it forced Dalton and Minerva to have to work together It is such special traits rarely found in romance that made me a voracious reader of the genre in the first placeLastly I want to touch briefly on Dalton For the most part he was a different kind of rake I was happy to have found this out because I feel like the theme of rakes is slightly overdone Of course Minerva was not the ideal heroine that I was expecting her to be Instead she was strong willed and was a great match for a man like Dalton Whether or not you consider yourself a larger reader of romance novels I would still recommend this book I loved it and I think you will too Discover new romance reviews at The Bookish The Romantichttpthebookishandtheromanticblogs

I gave this a B at AAR and somehow forgot to post the review hereKaren Ranney’s MacIain series moves away from Scotland for the second book Scotsman of My Dreams a well written and very enjoyable character driven romance featuring a hedonist who returns from war a very different man to the one who went away and the forthright woman who helps him to regain his confidence and find his purpose in lifeDalton MacIain the middle of the three sons of the Earl of Rathsmere was a hellraiser and became something of an icon to the many bored younger sons of the ton who attempted to emulate him Deciding that life as a rakehell wasn’t interesting or exciting enough Dalton decided to go to fight in the Civil War in America and a group of his younger acolytes accompanied him earning them all the nickname of “MacIain’s Marauders” The dozen of them who went chose which side they would fight for on the simple toss of a coin seeing as none of them had any particular loyalty either way; Dalton and four others ended up fighting for the North while the others took up arms for the SouthDalton soon discovers that his dreams of action excitement and glory are just that – dreams – and that the realities of war are far gruesome than he could have imagined He is contemplating a return to England when he is shot; and when after months of convalescence in America and a long sea voyage he arrives home it’s to be told that his older brother Arthur is dead and that he is now the Earl of RathsmereBurying himself away in his London home Dalton becomes something of a recluse The bullet which narrowly missed spattering his brains all over American soil took his right eye and has almost completely deprived him of his sight in his left so he is to all intents and purposes blind He misses Arthur than he could have thought possible and doubts his ability to run the earldom as well as his brother; he’s purposeless and directionless drinks too much and wonders whether he’d have been better off if the bullet had done its jobWhen Minerva Todd the sister of one of his merry band bursts into his home demanding to know what has become of her brother Dalton angrily turns her away The woman is incredibly persistent however and refuses to leave him alone until she gets some answers even going so far as to follow him on the rare occasions he leaves his house Furious Dalton eventually tells her the truth; he has no idea where her brother is and couldn’t care less because the last thing he remembers seeing was Neville Todd aiming a gun at him Minerva is uite naturally horrified and refuses to believe him but Dalton isn’t interested in what she believes – he may now be blind but at the time he could see perfectly well and Todd had attempted to kill himUnbeknownst to Minerva Dalton has already taken steps to find her brother calling in one of his closest friends investigator James Wilson When Dalton tells Wilson that he has recently learned that Arthur’s death may not have been accidental his friend takes the view that Dalton’s life may still be in danger – and having gained an idea of who might want him dead Dalton is inclined to agreeRealising that Miss Todd is not going to leave him alone Dalton throws her off balance by inviting her to act as his secretary of sorts From their encounters so far he has learned that she will not lie to him try to cosset him or sugar coat things; she is straightforward to the point of pain sometimes but that’s exactly what he wants and needs Minerva agrees in spite of herself Even scarred and blind the earl is as devastatingly attractive as ever and she is drawn to him in spite of the common sense that tells her that he presents a serious danger to her peace of mind –and her heartWhile there’s a strong element of mystery to this story the bulk of it is devoted to a very well developed tender and often funny romance and to the rehabilitation of Dalton MacIain He begins the book as a man wallowing in self pity and self doubt and gradually transforms himself into someone who is aware of his strengths as well as his weaknesses and who eventually comes to realise that he is than capable of running an earldom and of taking his rightful place in society His character progression is very well done especially in those moments he is brought to the realisation of what a selfish bastard he had been by small things such as when he wonders whether he ever actually bothered to thank his housekeeper for her excellent work before or when he realises that he doesn’t know the names of his servants and what they all do The fact that he is blind obviously means that he cannot return to his previous lifestyle but it also gives him the breathing space to realise that he doesn’t want to – and that he wants to make something of his lifeMinerva is an unusually forthright heroine even for a genre that is riddled with them She is outspoken and sexually experienced having decided in her mid twenties that marriage was unlikely but that she didn’t want to go through life without having experienced passion; she eschews corsets stays and petticoats whenever she can and even wears trousers well a sort of divided skirt Her real passion is archaeology and she looks forward to returning to a site in Scotland that she visits regularly – but has delayed her most recent trip due to her desperation to find her brother But underneath her tough exterior is a lonely woman who can be easily wounded one with a great capacity for love and affection who spent her life trying to be proper until she realised that propriety wasn’t making her happy This underlying vulnerability together with her no nonsense attitude makes her an attractive and sympathetic heroineThe mystery element of the story is perhaps overly simplistic although it does reach a satisfactory conclusion The romance however is very good indeed Dalton and Minerva are a well matched pair; neither of them cares overmuch for society’s approval and they are both stubborn determined people The dialogue zings with sexual energy and attraction and the genuine friendship that develops between them is every bit as enjoyable as the love story I enjoyed Scotsman of My Dreams very much and am definitely going to be reading the next book in the series
