Product Description

About the Author

Karen Ranney wanted to be a writer from the time she was five years old and filled her Big Chief tablet with stories. People in stories did amazing things and she was too shy to do anything amazing. Years spent in Japan, Paris, and Italy, however, not only fueled her imagination but proved she wasn't that shy after all.

Now a New York Times and USA Today bestseller, she prefers to keep her adventures between the covers of her books. Karen lives in San Antonio, Texas.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
When Lady Sarah Baines, daughter of the Duke of Herridge, is offered to Douglas Eston, a man seeking investors for his diamond manufacturing process, he sees something in Sarah that makes him go along with the deal. Douglas Eston has worked his way from the gutters in Perth to become a successful man but he's a little out of his depth with Sarah. Is she icy cold or is all her emotion and love invested in her home, Chavensworth, where her dying mother lives?

I like the first part of this story very much, where Douglas and Sarah begin to get to know each other. Douglas is an unusual man in stories like this in that he's fairly passive, allowing Sarah to live her life as she wishes and not pushing her into anything new until she is ready for it.

I felt the second half of the story wasn't as successful, with the action moving briefly to Scotland (although many of the scenes there felt a bit odd) and then a short spell in London with a danger/rescue plot that never felt convincing.

And the title of this book? It has a scottish feel with a tartan on the front cover but our Scottish hero, who shows almost no trace of his Scottish birth, becomes the Laird four pages from the end - and rather out of the blue. This isn't a Scottish book for those who enjoy that side of the novel, it's more of an English Country House story, although with the usual Americanisms to grate at times. Neither character felt particularly convincing, the settings and side characters also felt a little wooden. This was an OK read but nothing to get excited about.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sold to the Laird 3 Jun. 2014
By Fluffy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
She's done it again! Kept my interest from the first two sentences, which grabbed my attention, and kept my interest through the book. I fell in love with the main male character, Douglas, in this story from the first. Self made man, with an easy smile and an open, warm personality. Sarah was so confused and unbending, untrusting, and naive, that I was beginning to wonder if anything would develop between the two! Several twists and turns which is always helpful in a good story. I would recommend Ms. Ranney's books to anyone.
3.0 out of 5 stars sold to a laird was different but entertaining 5 Feb. 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

Lady Sarah was a lady in need of saving and Douglas was just the man to do it. As heroes go he fit the bill he took the cautious approach with Sarah and planted seeds of wonder and doubt as to what Sarah's perceptions had been in the past and introduced her to a new and more fulfilling role. The introduction to her family in Scotland added more texture to her personality and brought Sarah and Douglas closer and more complete as a couple. The role the Duke played in the story was pathetic and ended with as it should leaving him to wallow in his degradation. All in all an entertaining story.

3.0 out of 5 stars "Not Karen Ranney's Best" 13 Jan. 2010
By Stars - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I was disappointed in Sold to a Laird. It moved along to
slowly. There was only one thing that kept my interest.
Therefore, I had to finish the book.

Douglas Eston believed his invention would be profitable.
He went to see the Duke of Herridge, if he would be one
of his investors. The Duke agreed, with one stipulation
if Douglas would marry his daughter Lady Sarah.

Douglas and Lady Sarah are the main character.
They were totally opposites. Lady Sarah didn't have
any physical chemistry for Douglas until the end of
the story. Lady Sarah was a cold dignified person
throughout the book. I liked Douglas he's warm kind
and gentle with lots of patience for Lady Sarah.

I do recommend Karen Ranney other books. I enjoyed
reading they were excellent.

An interesting storyline that made you want to keep reading to find out what was going to happen next. Great characters that you wanted to learn more. Karen Ranney could conceivably write a dozen more novels from this one novel.

2.0 out of 5 stars Weak at best.. 8 Feb. 2012
By Tbascoebuzz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This is my first K. Ranney book and even though I feel it missed it's mark by more than a few miles, I'll probably....most likely...maybe give her another shot. About the book- - first, I loved the characters in this book. Loved D. Estons sensitivity, knowledge and wisdom. However the two main characters were vastly underdeveloped. KR could've done so much better giving us more insight into Douglas...(do we even know his age? ..or Sarah's for that matter??) Secondly, what's up with the title"..Douglas is no Laird and Sarah basically wasn't sold. Thirdly, the visit to Sarahs' G'father was confusing at best. Are we to believe Sarah's mother had an incestuous affair?!? Can someone enlighten me???? I still don't know!! I've read and reread the chapter where Sarah meets Brendan, (a cousin that looks just like her)...and his father (Michael) is Sarahs' uncle...so...what gives? Major yuck factor there. Even with the weak plot and story line, even with the under developed characters...I guess I'm a sucker for dumb under developed, weak romance drivel because I did find the book somewhat entertaining to a "2 star" degree.
