Karen Ranney

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Karen Ranney's books have been described as evocative, intensely romantic stories featuring characters who leap off the page.

Karen Ranney is the daughter of an Air Force officer and lived in places around the world. She began writing when she was five. In first grade, she wrote a short story called "The Maple Leaf," which was chosen to be read over the school intercom.

After writing her first novel, ABOVE ALL OTHERS, Ranney found an agent. While her agent was trying to find a publisher willing to purchase the novel, Ranney continued writing, finishing TAPESTRY and beginning to write a third novel, A PROMISE OF LOVE. Approximately three years after she had begun writing the first novel, Kensington agreed to purchase both of Ranney's completed works as well as the novel in progress.

Most of Ranney's novels are set in Scotland and feature "believable characters, careful plotting, and simmering sexual tension." She has been nominated nine times for a Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice Award and won a Romantic Times Career Achievement Award in 2002 for British-set Historical Romance. Ranney has also been on the USA Today Bestseller List as well as the New York Times Bestseller List.
