I'm with reviewer MaryS on this one. Nov. 29 2009
By Old Latin teacher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The biggest complaint I have lately with Karen Ranney books is the cheesy covers the publisher puts on them. The one on SOLD TO A LAIRD was almost enough to turn me off but I like Karen Ranney enough not to judge a book by its cover and anyway she's not to blame for it. As to the story, the heroine did not strike me as cold, but rather repressed by her upbringing, and the hero is to die for. Sensitive and a hunk. What more could you want? The author develops the romance and love slowly with none of that unrealistic immediate sex in a closet kind of situation. Ranney makes you feel the love developing and it is romantic, not just lustful. And she writes far better than the majority of romance novelists.

Disagree Nov. 26 2009
By MaryS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I disagree with the above review. I also love Karen Ranney and there are a few of her books that did not click with me. I really loved this one. The heroine was not cold, she protected herself by reining in her emotions. She was vulnerable and she needed a hero who could break through that shield and get to the person beneath. Douglas was a great hero. The Duke was a bit of a caricature, but it still worked.

Another Touching Love Story! Dec 2 2009
By Amy C - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have only recently began reading Karen Ranney, the first being Devil Wears Tartan. And since that book, two more have released and I've rushed out to buy both...A Scotsman in Love (which by the way, is one of my top historical reads. Loved that book!) and now this one, Sold to a Laird.

In Sold to a Laird, Lady Sarah is the daughter of a Duke. Her father raised her with fierce strictness and no love at all. She is forced by her father to marry a stranger, Douglas Eston, in order to spare her dying mother from a trip to her homeland of Scotland. Lady Sarah appears cold and emotionless, but Douglas Eston warms her bit by slow bit. It's a sensual game that Eston plays with Sarah, and one that undoubtedly left me in awe of the amount of emotional intensity some of their scenes are filled with.

Sarah struck me as an honest, innocent young woman. Her fears and emotions towards Eston didn't feel like they were coming from a naive woman, but an unknowing, inexperienced one. I've read books where the heroine had no clue what took place between a man and a woman or the desires that could rise up and consume them and they seemed a bit much. A bit over the top. Not very believable. But in this book, I found myself saddened by, and wholly believing Sarah's lack of knowledge and her fight to deny the passions Douglas begins to fill her with.

This book, as with the previous two books I've read, has such a somber mood that really makes your heart ache for the characters. Douglas was the epitome of heroes for Sarah, holding her and comforting her when she most needed it, simply being there for her, understanding her. He took into consideration her upbringing and accepted her for who she was. And Sarah, I loved that she never grew angry with the liberties Douglas took, the way he, at times, pushed her. He did it in just a way that gave her time to think through the turmoil of feelings swirling through her.

Another fantastically done, heartfelt and moving romance between two people that need each other, especially Sarah. And Douglas Eston is her perfect match. The two meld together beautifully. This is another book that I'll look back on with a warm heart remembering the gentle, soothing touches Douglas bestowed on his Lady Sarah.

"Not Karen Ranney's Best" Jan. 13 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.

Sweet Love Story Jan. 13 2010
By cb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I liked this book it had depth and the lessons that were given about life and death were very good. This is a historical love story of Lady Sarah Baines and Douglas Eston who have arranged marriage. Sarah father is a heartless Duke who offers to fund Douglas current experiment if he `will take his daughter off his hands'. They marry and slowly fall in love - they make a marriage and partnership and it's sweet and nice. Looking forward to A Highland Duchess due out July 27,2010.
