About Karen Ranney

All of Karen Ranney's books published on Smashwords were originally published between 1995 - 1999 by Kensington Publishing.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Karen Ranney was first published in 1995. Since then, she’s gone on to write dozens of historical romances, most of them set in Scotland.

Her books have been described as evocative, intensely romantic stories featuring characters who leap off the page.

As an Air Force brat, Karen lived all over the world. In addition to being trapped in East Berlin and lost in Russia, she also numbers among her early adventures having her first date in Paris and traveling the entire route of the Orient Express.

She wanted to be an archeologist, a Foreign Service Officer, or a violinist. Instead, she became a decorated Navy Wave, a journalist, and the somewhat bemused mother of two sons. She’s also moderated a daily radio program, been a motivational speaker, and admits to having had more than six careers, among them Purchasing Director, Help Desk Analyst, Marketing Director, and a Human Resources Manager.

However, it is her love of books and a fascination with writing that have remained constant throughout her life. Writing allows her to live vicariously, travel to other centuries and answer that one eternal question – What if?

Review by: sandy haber on June 09, 2013 :
This short story about a Vampir and a not attractive young woman, underscores the old maxim about beauty only being skin deep. Louisa is wanted by her would-be suitors for her money only as she is not the typical waif-like debutante but a mix of her parent's features. Douglas is a Vampir who gets his strength not from blood but by taking part of a person's energy. An interesting twist.

Review by: DeeAnn Szymanski on June 08, 2013 : (no rating)
A Dance in the Dark is about two less-than-perfect people who find they have much in common. It was an enjoyable read and kept my interest thru the story. I will be reading more of this authors books.
