(PDF/EBOOK) [The Virgin of Clan Sinclair]
D despite writing a sensual work of art she is a virgin and has zero xperience when it comes to making love However she does have uite a imagination and I loved how this author added a few snippets that were so addicting that I just wanted Ellice knows that she won t settle for anything less than passion and love She sees what her brother has and craves it for herself She is very independent sweet and fun loving Now the herosexy Scot who wears a kilt at times and takes up the steam level a few notches He is sensuality personified He is alpha likes to be obeyed and refuses to answer uestions unless he wants to I loved how determined he is and I wouldn t mind having this man at my side any day of the yearTheir relationship was fun and playful at times and others very intense I loved the variations in the story that just kept me Eyes engaged and at the same time keeping me flipping through those pages as soon as I had read them The story just came alive with stunning scenes heart wrenching characters and a story that stole my breath and tugged at those heart strings Emotionally riveting from beginning tond a romance that I never wanted to nd A nticing mixture of passion witty humor and adventure SIMPLY MAGICAL I just dare you to pick this one up and NOT adore itReceived a ARC copy in Sinner's Heart exchange for a honest review I ve given this a C at AARThis is the third book in Ms Ranney s Clan Sinclair trilogy of novels set in Victorian Scotland I haven t read the previous two books but this works perfectly well as a standalone anyone who has read the others will no doubt be pleased to note that the couples from those books appear in secondary roles in this one The Virgin of Clan Sinclair isntertaining nough but possesses two or three rather large flaws which prevent me from rating it highly Ellice Traylor has spent her ntire life in the shadow of her older and utterly perfect sister Eudora Even though Eudora has sadly passed away Ellice s mother continues to compare Ellice unfavourably never letting her forget that she is a huge disappointment her behaviour and deportment are not as good as Eudora s and while there would have been no problem finding her beautiful sister a husband Ellice s plain brown hair and brown Spirit of the Wolf eyes will make it much difficult to attract anligible suitorEllice is obviously tired of her mother s strictures but finds herself obeying them because it s too difficult and would cause too much of an uproar to attempt to go against them But she rebels in secret having penned a scandalous A Vineyard Christmas erotic novelntitled The Lustful Adventures of Lady Pamela in which the Een Bijzondere Vorm Van Osteosclerose eponymous heroine details many varied sexualncounters and the course of her relationship with the love of her lifeNow this was something I found very difficult to credit that a well born virgin in the 1870s could possibly have gained nough knowledge from reading Tom Jones Fanny Hill and listening to servants gossip to have written rotica that was not only anatomically accurate but which people who were sexually xperienced could find arousing and which could cause the hero to decide that Ellice can t possibly be a virgin It s obvious that Ellice has a very passionate nature and is naturally curious about the whole business of what goes on in the bedroom and it s stated often that she has a very vivid imagination But I still can t believe that a young woman brought up under the strict social and moral s of the Victorian ra could have come up with such a thing almost ntirely from her imagination The Victorians were prudes when it came to young women the upper classes and it s an undisputed fact that prostitution was rife at this period the double standards applied to the women men married and the ones they used for sex were massive women in the former category were sheltered and kept in a state of ignorance when it came to matters of sexuality I ve always thought rotica must be challenging to write well Math Basics 6 even for people who know what they re writing and the idea that a virgin could conjure up those ideas and importantly describe the feelingsxperienced during sex just didn t wash for meRoss Forster Earl of Glasden is an upright rather stuffy young man who is doing his best to restore his family name and pull it up from beneath the huge pile of scandal heaped upon it as a result of his father s reputation as a man who would shag anything in a skirt Determined not to fall prey to his passions in the manner his father did Ross has worked diligently to restore his family s fortune and now spends most of his time overseeing his massive Voyage to the Underworld (Star Wars Missions, estates and campaigning for hislection as Representative Peer Obviously he s never heard the The First Ghost expression about all work and no playHis initial meeting with Ellice she had attempted to stow away in his carriage with the intention ofscaping her mother and taking her book to Edinburgh for publication is an inauspicious one and one I confess that tempted me to throw my Kindle at the wall Their verbal sparring isn t so much banter as it was a series of unending uestions and vasion that became irritating very uickly I realise that deflecting unwanted uestions by asking uestions is a character trait for both Ellice and Ross but that xchange made me want to spitAnother issue I had with the storyline was when ross insists on trying to prevent when Ross insists on trying to prevent of Ellice s book because of the fact he bears a resemblance to the hero and that anyone reading it would immediately assume it was based on a real love affair between him and Ellice It s not that I wondered at his attitude given his circumstances it s because a the idea of Ellice publishing the book under her own name didn t make sense it would have ruined her socially and b details of the hero s appearance could be asily alteredIn spite of my criticisms I didn t dislike the book After suspending my disbelief at Ellice s ability to write an rotic novel I found her to be an ngaging heroine who just wanted to live her own life and to be able to xpress herself on her own terms She s clever funny and one of those people who on finding what she wants throws herself into it headlong Humanism even though that may not perhaps be the wisest course I liked that she isn t missish or backward about letting Ross know she desires him and that s she s not afraid to challenge his behaviour towards herWhen he isn t acting as though he has a poker up his arse Ross is considerate and has an attractive playful side that is uite delightful but he doesn t do himself any favours when he prejudges Ellice at the beginning of the story and again later when he abruptly and hurtfully dist. E about to be derailed by her mother's matrimonial designs she takes matters into her own handsRoss Forster the Earl of Gladsden has spent his life creating order out of chaos Hexpects discipline and calm from those around him What he does not xpect is a beautiful thoroughly maddening stowaway in his carriageBut when Ross discovers. ,
The Virgin of Clan Sinclair is one of the most light hearted offerings I ve read by Ranney and I loved it With the characters the way they were it made sense for the book to have a sweeter less angsty feelEllice is a woman living with her sister in law belittled by her mother and bullied by her housekeeper To most she is a simple waif with few opinions of her own In her private fantasies however she is a vivid dreamer with a taste for rotic romance and drama all of which she Placing Memory either plays through in her head or writes in a manuscript While some readers were skeptical of how Ellice would come up with therotic fantasies that she did because I was forewarned going in it didn t bother me I think some people are born with a knack for writing Lasombra erotic literature and with Ellice being observant and a voracious reader I decided that she was one of those rare gifted people and rolled with it Ross was a nice foil to Ellice s dreamer Ross was desperately trying to resurrect his family s good name after his father dragged it through the mud with his profligate ways Where Ellice is dramatic whimsical and innocent Ross is somber practical and jaded Despite their differences the two cannot keep their hands offach other and by coming together they mellow ach otherThe story is slower in pace and there is no villain but I really njoyed it Some of Ellice s daydreams were silly but for the most part fun to read I loved reading about the mystical Huntley Ross home and about Castle Drumvagen Ellice s home before she married This story had a fairytale feel to it with Ellice being somewhat of an ugly duckling who turned into a swan once she found love Ross saw who she truly was from the beginning and their chemistry flew off the pages Despite Ellice s Wanton Nights erotic imaginings there weren t many sex scenes Instead the story focused on a slow building of a relationship through toughxperiences conversation and While My Soldier Serves everyday lifeThis story bless Karen Ranney also came with a nicepilogue I love when stories have pilogues It is a sweet finish to a story and really nails home that the lead characters got their happily ver after Ranney delivers hereOverall I really ಪರಿಸರದ ಕತೆ Parisarada Kathe enjoyed this one There was some silliness in Ellice s imaginings but for the most part the characters acted like adults talked toach other and chose not to deny their feelings An The Fiend Next Door enjoyable read As a note this book could be read stand alone I ve not read the other books in this series but I found this wonderful anyway This was a very fun book to read I really liked both Ellice and Ross Ellice has spent the last several years pretty much under the thumb of her mother Nothing that she does is right and she is constantly being compared to her dead older sister She finds itasier to just go along with what her mother wants in public but in private it s a whole different story Ellice has a pretty vivid imagination and has been writing a novel that is highly rotic When her mother decides it s time to find Ellice a husband Ellice decides to run off to her friend who is a publisher and get her book published She tries hiding in a visitor s coach but is discovered before she can get anywhereRoss had stopped for a visit just to see what had been done with the house that his profligate father had started to build He has spent the five years since his father s death trying to repair the reputation of his family When he meets Ellice and discovers that she is the author of the scandalous manuscript he found in his coach he is horrified He is also intrigued He can t believe that an innocent young woman is capable of such writing and is sure that she is writing from personal xperience Though he is determined to stay away from her fate has other ideasI loved the interactions between Ellice and Ross When she s away from her mother Ellice has a pretty sharp tongue and doesn t seem to be afraid

Ances himself from herThe book is well written and paced for the most part although I was frustrated by those sections in which Ellice drifted off and began to think in terms of how her heroine would act in this or that situation and began basically to write in her head because it disturbed the flow It s not an infreuently used device and with the longer passages I confess I was tempted to skip them because I wanted to get back to the actual storyThe hero and heroine are strongly characterised and I njoyed the way the author revealed the similarities between them gradually as their relationship developed I m a fan of compromised into marriage plots and that aspect of the novel was nicely doneOverall The Virgin of Clan Sinclair passed the time AI Weiwei: Beijing Photographs, 1993-2003 enjoyably and anyone who has read the other books in the trilogy probably won t want to miss it If you re new to the series perhaps it isn t the best way to make the acuaintance of the Clan Sinclair This has to be the most lighthearted Karen Ranney book I havever read Usually when I pick up a Karen Ranney book I The Bubble Economy: Is Sustainable Growth Possible?
