    1. This review can also be found at Carole s Random Life.4.5 Stars This book was one of the best historical romances that I have read in a very long time I read a large variety of books and I really like to mix things up so I don t read all that many historical romances any Historical romance can sometimes be a little bit predictable but that did not apply to this book at all This book made me question why I don t read historical romances often This book is set in Scotland during the time of the A [...]

Once when you were mineI remember skiesReflected in your eyesI wonder where you areI wonder if youThink about meOnce upon a timeIn your wildest dreams.bAs I read this book, I kept thinking of the Moody Blues lovely ballad Once Upon a Time Later I read on Karen Ranney s website that the song s lyrics reminded her of Glynis and Lennox s story and inspired this book s title Karen Ranney delivers a passionate second chance romance, international espionage, and a solid history lesson in her latest bo [...]


    3. I have tried to read Karen Ranney s books several times, always ended up being disappointed I don t think I have given than 1 1 star review to a writer before This is my second for Karen Ranney I don t know how one could tell a story like she does Going here and there and everywhere without a clear aim of what needs to be achieved in the chapter She has a lot of secondary characters and the lead characters are as character less as water They simply have no taste Glynis and Lennox had a second c [...]


    4. Could not get very far with this one The story takes place during the American Civil War and the Civil War is an important component of the story, even though it is nominally set in Scotland The hero builds ships to break the Union blockade of Confederate ports, and is basically on the side of the South The bad guy works for the Union government Ranney describes the hero as disliking slavery at this point I had to set the book away throw it away, in fact Ummm, no, there is no liking or disliking [...]


    5. This book was such a chore to get through because it was so boring I kept hoping things would pick up but they never did I don t think that top shelf for it should be historical romance because this book was about the mill and the shipyard and the American Civil War and the romance was simply a subplot The American Civil War is the centre of the story even though it s happening an ocean away and there s no one from the story directly involved in it Oh, and nearly ever single person the reader me [...]

    8. I ve given this a B for narration and a B for content at AudioGals, so let s say 3.5 stars.In Your Wildest Scottish Dreams is the first in a new series from this popular author, and is set in Scotland in the 1860s As well as having an intriguing historical background, it features a second chance romance, which is a favourite trope of mine and the audiobook version is narrated by Ralph Lister, someone I ve listened to before and wanted to hear again.Glynis MacIain has been in love with her brothe [...]

    10. Good second chance story with a bit of mystery and a different background than most historical romances I really enjoyed the setting of Glasgow and the merchant classes as a break from London and the nobility I also learned some things about the American Civil War that I didn t know before I love it when an author does the research to ensure that their stories are accurate.Glynis and Lennox had grown up together as neighbors, with Lennox being her brother Duncan s best friend When she was eighte [...]


    11.

    14. DNF at 17% Chapter 7 I like historical novels One of the things that I like is the predictability of the story and plot I love the unique characters in the familiar stories I do not like westerns though or stories about the American Civil War There is nothing romantic about war While the cover led me to believe that the story was about Scotland, I should have paid closer attention to the synopsis of the novel This book takes place during the American Civil War with that as a major plot feature T [...]


    15. Why oh why did I not delete this book from my phone Uggggggh Was this thing written by the Riddler Every single sentence is a question After a statement we get like 3 questions and then some late addition and then another question A new history romance has been started Will it be the same as the other ones Will there be some innovation introduced by the author Will these characters be reliable and internist Maybe I should buy it and find out But what if it turns out to be horrible disappointment [...]


    16. Just needed some Scottish accents in my life so I listened to this audiobook I had a hard time at first with this story since the good guys in this story were definitely fighting for the Confederates in Americans Civil War It turns out that the Scots were well known for building ships and helping the wrong side of history The story was entertaining but it was so hard to read this tale.


    17. I enjoyed the story though I felt that the two characters didn t spend enough time together the only thing that made their love really seem real was that they knew eachother before But I did enjoy it though some of the characters were hard to keep up with in the beginning and there were a lot of view points.

    19. Mmmmmm Lennox Cameron, what a hunk of man flesh I can certainly understand why Glynis MacIain spent most of her life in love with him but not why she let pride chase her away, and into a loveless and bizarre marriage to an English diplomat Karen Ranney has created a really nicely balanced world The once wealthy Maclain cotton mills are unable to weave because the blockade during the American civil war is preventing the raw cotton getting to Scotland Yet the civil war means ships, so Lennox Camer [...]

    23. Le roman de Karen Ranney a manqu quelque peu de passion Il est dommage d attendre si longtemps que le couple se rapproche, a encore je passe dessus car ce n est pas le plus important, pour que la suite de l histoire se d roule presque dans la pr cipitation Dommage que les personnages centraux n aient pas eu de personnalit plus int ressante, m me s ils sont intelligents et qu ils sont agr ables N anmoins le contexte de l histoire n est pas trop mal Ce qui tourne autour des bateaux, le pass de Gly [...]


    24. Last year I was introduced through the means of reading to Ranney After the introduction I haven t looked at a romance novel the same way The author is a rare storyteller Her stories are beautifully woven, the plots are unique and the heart of the tales are true to the heart of any romantic.At the beginning of this book I wasn t sure that the Lennox, the hero and I would get along very well By the time I reached his company I had already sympathized with Glynis, the heroine Most of the time I co [...]

I was so happy to read this one by one of my favorite authors Ms Ranney has outdone herself with this splendid tale of lost love You get a sense of how things change in one s life never to capture it again.I liked the characters and how they responded to one another They are not perfect and that is what makes it real for me When Glynis MacIain made a foolish mistake and declared her love to Lennox Cameron, she was devastated She was only 17 at the time and felt it was time to tell Lennox she lov [...]
