Till Next We Meet
In a departure from her nationally bestselling Highland Lord series, Karen Ranney brings us another emotionally intense and passionate story that will speak to her fans.
When Adam Moncrief, Colonel of the Highland Scots Fusiliers, agrees to write a letter to Catherine Dunnan, one of his officers' wives, a forbidden correspondence develops and he soon becomes fascinated with...more
I read this book in response to one of the prompts for the AAR Days of the Week Reading Challenge, which was for Wednesday - Read an epistolary novel, or a book where letters, phone, text or email messages are relevant to the story.
I like epistolary novels in general – I’ve read several classics like Fanny Burney’s Evelina or Laclos’ Les Liaisons Dangereuses, but I haven’t read too many when it comes to more recently written titles, so this was a prompt I was keen to take u ...more
Catherine Dunnan pines away at her Scots estate for her husband of one month Harry, who is fighting the wars in North America (the French and Indian War as it's called in the U.S.). Harry is a bounder in every way, and he cruelly ignores the heartfelt letters she constantly sends. Harry ...more
De esos libros en los que lo importante es la evolución de los sentimientos y de la relación entre ambos
Una grata sorpresa
You're like a mirror, reflecting me
Takes one to know one, so take it from me
You've been lonely
You've been lonely too long
We've been lonely
We've been lonely too long
This was kind of a reverse Love in the Afternoon (by Lisa Kleypas) situation. Catherine Dunnan is in Scotland and she writes to her husband who is off fighting a war in Quebec... except she's not. Because her husban ...more
I loved the hero, Moncrief! He was such a fantastic man! He's not totally alpha, he has no caveman tendencies, but he's still deliciously commanding! But he's also very tender and very honorable! Loved, loved him!!!
Also the heroine, Kate, was great! She started like a grief stricken woman: she was suffering the death of her love. That he was not her love was beside the point. That I'll discover only later on. I didn't liked how much self-destructive her grief was, but ...more
No sé si es que no he logrado conectar con la historia o que la verdadera aventura empieza más adelante y la primera parte es más "lineal" por así decirlo, pero lo cierto es que ha habido momentos en el libro que me han chocado muchísimo y que han hecho que no vea el libro con muchas ganas. Es posible que la culpa sea mía, porque hay muchos lib ...more
Love love love this book!
Love the story and the characters. Love the letters, written or the ones that Moncrief wrote in his head. The longing was heartbreaking but the love scenes were scorching!
A great read for me!
In Sandra's book, decent guy married to lovely lady and stationed overseas gets killed, and his friend ends up with her letters to her husband, falls in love with her by way of them, and comes back stateside to find and woo her. Only he's a total cad that she's read about and loathes, so he doesn't tell her who he is or how he's fallen for her, and it all explodes into pain and angst at the end, whic ...more
I figured out Glynneth's secret almost as soon ...more
The cons: there were a lot of subplots. I felt they were unnecessary and d ...more
Looking back over my book updates while reading this novel, it strikes me that I had more negative to say about this story, than positive. This is odd to be, because realistically, this book didn't bring a wrathful hatred to my reading mind. There were definitely some serious issues within, but not all was for not.
The writing style, in general, was very well done. From both ...more
In the beginning, the Heroine is a bit pathetic, grieving so heavily (six months, unable to eat or get out of bed, on the cusp of possible suicide) for a husband she knew for only a few months before he left her -- of course the readers know isn't worthy of her love.
Ah, but I was intrigured by the plot (so romantic ...more
This is the best I could find on my TBR shelves for something about a writer. The hero and heroine are letter write ...more
Catherine Dunnan is devestated when her husband goes off to war; and treasures his heartfelt letters- prompting her to write in kind.
Moncrief, in favor to another officer, agrees to write warm and loving missives in a fellow officer's name; never expecting to fall in love with the woman who answered them- a woman he has never met. Returning to England to assume the title of duke, Moncrief is drawn to Catherine and the promise of her love. ...more
Although I've primarily written historical romance, I've also written contemporary romantic suspense, a murder mystery, and I'm having a wonderful time writing about a vampire who is being challenged by her new state of being. (The Montgomery Chronicles: The Fertile Vampire and The Reluctant Godd ...more
