I just finished Kissing Cousins...I have to admit I was a little afraid of the title. I absolutly loved it! Swaggart is my new favorite male lead. I am usually more into your historical romance novels, but this is now my second favorite that you have written (Shackles of Honor being the first). My life has been so hectic crazy lately and I havn't found time to read much. When I saw this book at the library, I grabbed it thinking that I might be able to finish it with in the month's check out time. Somehow I found all kinds of time to read it and complete this book in a matter of days. I am always excited to see when you have a new book out, please keep them coming.

I am completely in love with your books and the characters. They are so drop dead gorgeous!!! I can"t seem to express how AMAZING they are!!! Sadly it is hard to pick a favorite.... because every single one I've read was AWESOME!!! I would probably pick Dusty Britches as my favorite... I LOVE Ryder and I would seriously consider naming my son Ryder if i have a boy. 🙂 crazy I know but your books have influenced me to do so. I FINALLY convinced my friend to read the books. And she is CRAZY about them..... and she thought I was crazy?!! Anyways I want to say thanks for writing these books. I don't know what I would do without them. They are the BEST books I have EVER read in my entire life!! I am not exaggerating. I love to read and I know a good book when I read it. You are the one author I enjoy reading books from. Thanks.
— Madison Kellogg, Santa Clarita, CA
I am a bookaholic. When I start a book, I have to read it all in one go, no matter how thick it is. I've all ways been that way. But when I read one of your books, it is waaay worse. To the point where my house is completely neglected. 🙂
I love that your books are clean. It is so hard to find a good romance these days that doesn't have anything immoral to it. I love that your heroes are protectors of virtue. I love that your characters take time to develop their feelings for each other, and that they aren't like a Disney princess (Beauty and the Beast excluded) and start to declare their love a second after seeing each other for the first time. I love how reading your books renews my efforts/desire to have a relationship with my husband that your characters have (especially Ransom and Vaden). I love.... well I love everything about your books.
Thank you so much for these treasures! Please don't ever stop writing!
— Carolyn, Thatcher, Arizona
My best friend got me hooked on your books, and I absolutely love them. They are my secret escape and I love that they are clean romances which makes it even better. These books have helped set a standard for finding my Ransom Lake. Keep up the good work Marcia, and thank you!
— Jaime Comer, Valdez, Alaska
I can always count on your books to make my life more enjoyable. I love reading, and usually read books several times, but I cannot count how many times I have read all of your books. I was so glad when one of my very best friends first introduced me to your books. I've been hooked ever since.
— Linn S.
I have been having so much FUN reading your books! Romance books are always an escape, but after a while, an author becomes predictable, both in their style and format and in their setting. They get lazy (and I don't blame them!). But you take us all OVER the place, both in characters, in setting, in mood, in so MANY things! But the books are never downers, as the characters seem to share your love of life and of people. I have been having so much fun going on so many adventures with you! I can't wait until the next one! (which I will listen to on my Kindle just as soon as I finish writing this ;o)
— Diana Josephson, Colorado Springs CO
I had to laugh. I'm sending my sister a book or two as a gift for her birthday. I wanted to get her hooked on these like she got me hooked on a series. I started to read down the "On the shelf" list. I found myself saying: "I love that one", "ooooh I LOVED that one". "oh, that's another favorite". "man I love that one". "Love it"!.
Needless to say I LOVE THESE BOOKS, and I'm about passed out from excitment and bitting at the bit for the next two comming. I check everyday. Anyway I sent her to this site to read through and have her tell me which she wanted.
HEHEHEHE, She will be sooooo hooooked.
After all wek were both blessed with Manly men.
— Teya , Idaho
I Love your books! It's great to have nice romances that I can always count on being great books as well as Good books. I love to escape into them and they've gotten me through some pretty tough times. Thank you!
— Temperance Garrison, Syracuse, Utah
I have always been an avid reader but when I discovered your books I knew I had found my favorite author! Your books are unsurpassed in their ability to inspire searching for the unparalleled love you so beautifully describe. Thank you for teaching all women to never give up on their one true love!
— Taci, Utah
Thank you for sharing your gift to a sucker of a good love story, and thank you for keeping it clean! I wish there were more authors like you!
— Tara H.
I wasn't into any kind of romance novels but when my Dad remarried, the first real bonding moment with my Dad's wife was when she introduced to me to your books. The first I read was "Born for Thorton's Sake" soon after followed by "Beneath the Honeysuckle Vine". I have been hooked since. My favourite is still "Divine Deception". Thank you so much for bringing excess joy to my life and a little more romance.
— Sara, Utah
I love your books! My family thinks I am crazy but I love them anyway. Please keep writing! If only there were more books out there that are as good as yours
— Taylor S.
I am ruined for life! I cannot find another author I enjoy reading as much as you! I am now re-reading all your books!!! I've found no other author who can write a truly satisfying story. Please, please write some more knight/ medieval books. Oh my goodness...The Crimson Knight is the best book...I like it even more than Jane Austin's books! I never thought I would ever say that!!! Your stories are complex and mysterious. Your imagination amazes me--thanks for sharing it with us! Also love Saphyre Snow, The Highwayman, Prairie Prince, Old Fashioned Romance, Ransom Lake etc. More...please, more...:-)
— MSW, Alabama
I wanted to thank you for your wonderful books! I was given one to read several years ago and have been reading them ever since! I have tried other authors but they were either too racy with swearing or not romantic enough and just boring! I know you will keep it clean but still keep me interested. Please keep writing so I can keep reading and smiling!
I just love your books! My goodness, they give me thrills and chills and goosebumps and all sorts of other great things. I read The Highwayman of Tanglewood first, and immediately fell in love with the romance and mystery of it all. It joined my list of favorite books very quickly. Now I am having the pleasure of enjoying your other books, and must also add Crimson Frost to my favorites. You have such an effortless way of writing clean, feel good stories, that always leave me happy. Thank you for your talent and for sharing it! I anxiously wait for you to release many more wonderful, romantic tales!
I must also commend you on all your great names! Especially in The Fragrence of Her Name! It's the First time I have read a book with a character that shared my name! It was a wonderful surprise!
— LauraLyn, Arizona
I live for the next Marcia book. She has given me a way to escape my reality for a time and enjoy some good, clean, exciting romance. Marcia can write a kissing scene that will knock your socks off. Thank you Marcia!!
— Beckyg, Utah
I Love Marcia's book! I adore this sweet woman! I feel that she really cares about her fans! Her Meet and Greets are so fun! When I come away from them I feel so Loved and Happy! Thank You to Our Sweet Friend, Diana Jex for introducing Marcia's books! You will be truly missed!
Thank You Marcia for writing clean Romance Books! Thank You for being a caring Author!
— Tanille, Layton,Utah
Thank you Marcia for sharing your wonderful talent! I love your books! They are full of adventure, love and of course lots of kissing!!! I also have to say thank you for writing romance that is clean, That can be hard to find. Last but not least, I am sooo glad to see you in the e-book world, You have always been ahead of the game there! You and your team work hard to get us your books as quickly and easily as possible with many options. Way to follow your dream...and for sharing it!
— Natalee C., Utah
Marcia Lynn McClure is my favorite author! I have been a fan since I have been a teenager.I love romances but only clean ones and I can always read her wonderful books and not worry about any part of her books being dirty. All of her books have great storylines and funny parts in them! I always check her website regularly to see when she sells new books and it seems her books get better and better! Once you read one, you will be hooked!
— Lysha S, Utah
Dear Marcia, I am a new fan and lover of your books. I love that they are clean but can still encourage me to grab my handsome husband in my arms and beg for his kisses. For which I'm sure he is grateful to you as well. Your close friends are so lucky to have you so near to be able to talk your ear off with their own love of each new story. Never stop writing! Like so many I can't put your books down and sadly they are over too quickly!
— Brit H., Utah
The love I have for Marcia Lynn McClure's books I have a hard time describing....but I'll try. First let me say as a young woman I read constantly....historical novels, the classic like all of Jane Austen and biographies and who can forget Sweet Valley High..lol. However as my life changed reading was put to the side. I married and had two amazing children... my husband is my life and I feel fulfilled. Last year 2013 in May I received a Nook HD reader as an anniversary gift. My friends all suggested novels....(all the popular stuff)and I read some of it. Then I discovered" A crimson frost" Wow is all I can say.....next was Sapphire Snow and now I have read every M.L.M book I could find. Every single one! Thats alot of good reading! I found a writer who hears my heart and for that Mrs. McClure I will always be truly Thankful! You rock!
— Vanessa A., California
Ok, so I'm browsing through different kindle books in February of 2011, when I notice a book entitled "The Prairie Prince." I read the preview and got hooked instantly. It only took me a few days to finish it, but after that I was on a MLM shopping spree!! I couldn't read your stories fast enough. How refreshing it is to read a deliciously enchanting love story without all the nasty sex innuendos and potty mouth vocabulary! Marcia, I LOVE your writing style! Your books take me back to the wild West, to medieval times, though the seven seas, and to several beautiful states of which I'm dying to visit! I wanna see the special shapes rodeo! I made your sage cornbread stuffing these past two Thanksgivings and gave out pumpkin pies using your awesome recipe! Orange has been my favorite color for 15 years, so all the pumpkin talk gets me excited about harvest time! I totally want to be an autumn fairy this Halloween! I've never met you, yet I feel as if you are a kindred spirit. And I'm totally an Anne of Green Gables fan! Me and my friends used to have an "Anne Marathon" every Thanksgiving before they all got married and moved away. So, I just want to thank you. Thank you for all the hours you've invested into writing these wonderfully entertaining stories that still give this 37 year old goosebumps and hope that someday my mr wonderful will come along ;0) You are a truly blessed author with a remarkable skill to weave words into magical settings and down to earth stories. May God bless you with more creative ideas to keep me and many others swooning with delight!
— Monica, California
I have alomost every one of your books and have read them all several times! My kids say I am obsessed with reading! I feel like I am cheating on you when I read another author, who is never as good as you. You have a book for every mood it seems and I know i am safe with every book. Thank you for your talent. I am definately a big fan.
— Lyndee Ervien, taylor, AZ
I just want to tell you how much I LOVE your books! I have read every single one of them and have all of your books in soft cover and most of them in ebook form as well! What can I say I am a fan! As long as you keep writing I will keep reading! Your books are well loved by my mom and sisters as well. Please keep these Clean, romantic, feel good books coming!!! The only problem I have with your books is the lack of sleep I get when I get a new one because I can't put it down. And I am always disappointed when I am finished with a book because I just want it to keep going!
— Melanie Cluff, Nevada
As I read each one of your books, I think: this one is my very favorite...However, with "Untethered" you've outdone yourself...worth waiting for!!!!! I love it, love it, love it!!!!
— jet, NM
You are my absolutely positively favorite author. I love to read. I love to read good clean romances and there are not that many good clean romances out there. But your books are exactly just that. They are my favorite. Especially The Highwayman Of Tanglewood and Weathered too young and the McCall brothers. Thank you for writing such wonderfull books.
— Judy Boyer, Price, Utah
I am a huge fan!!! I have read almost all of your books and have never been disappointed. Of course I have some favorites;) thanks for making reading enjoyable!!
— camille, idaho
I just finished reading The Bewitching Of Amoretta Ipswich and I loved it. I cant wait to see what you come up with next. Thank you for every book. They come alive in mh mind while I read them.
— Judy , Orangeville, UT
I know you probably get this a lot, but you are my absolute favorite author! My mother and I have read every single one of your books at least four times. Each time I read them I am blown away by your imagination and your skill with literacy! Your books make me laugh, cry, wish, contemplate, and imagine all at once and I love it!
— Ericka P.
I've read over 300 books on my Kindle Fire and have forgotten most of them, that is until I read Dusty Britches. I have re-read that book time and time again as it speaks to me. I received my first kiss at 12 from a 15 year old boy who said he swas too old for me. Even though I've been married for 47 years to a wonderful man (my high school sweetheart) I have never forgotten that first kiss. Ryder is a special man with such loyalty and honor and love for Dusty. Thank you for such special books. I am reading Desert Fire now and loving it.
— Janet Williams, Cornelius, N.C.
Let me just say how much I enjoy your books! They've really made me romance happy, not to mention they act as a stress reliever when my schoolwork becomes too overwhelming.
— Aileen K.
I am so happy I have found these books. Thank you Marcia for sharing your writing gift . When I start one of your books, I am completely drawn into the story, characters and love they share. Excellent writing! Thanks for "taking me away." 🙂
— Jane P., California
I've never been one to sit and read a novel of any kinds. Now I can't even watch T.V. Your books are wonderful. I start one, and can't put it down. I've missed work on an occasion only because I stayed up all night reading. It was worth the day off. Now I get scared just to start a book on the weekdays because I might not be able to put it down. It's under control now, I think. But again, thank you.
— Maria M.
I hope you know how amazing your books are. They are my ultimate source of escape, and every time I read one, I sigh with happiness. Marcia, you write the best clean, steamy, juicy romance in the world.. Keep bringing more! I can't wait for the next one!
— Bronwyn, Arizona
Marcia I have been a fan for a long time and just wanted to add to what has already been stated......that your books are pretty amazing. They take us away from the hum drum of everyday life and give us a chance to slip away to another world and enjoy a good romance, a good laugh and even a good cry!
Who doesn't like a good cry once in awhile!
Thanks for giving us good, clean entertainment! We are truly the benefactors of your talents! My wish for you is that you will have great joy, love and laughter in your heart, home and family!!!
And lots more stories to share with us for many years to come!!!
It is so great to have an author that is truly inspiring. I laughed, cried and my heart felt full after reading the books. You have such a gift and I am so privileged to reread your stories over and over again.
— Amber P.
I love your books! They are such an escape, a very lovely escape! I have gotten my sisters and mom hooked on your book! Thankyou for you awesome books.
— Alisa F., Arizona
I love, love your books. I started reading them when I was in high school and couldn't read them fast enough. Then my best friend found them and now we talk about your books over and over again. Her favorite is the Highwayman of Tanglewood and mine, I don't think I could choose! I love them all, and thoroughly enjoy your talent and your ability to write a story. Thanks
— Jessica T., Logan, UT
I just can't get enough of Marcia's books!! I love the characters, and especially love the kissing!! I'm so glad there are books that give us the romance and are still clean and are full of true gentlemen to champion the women! I'm Seriously hooked! Please don't ever stop writing!
— Becky, Arizona
Finally!!! A writer who understands, and puts into words, the power and passion of a kiss! Last week a friend introduced your books to me. I borrowed the three books she had, "The Heavenly Surrender," The Visions of Ransom Lake," and Shackles of Honor." I'm almost done with "Shackles of Honor," and I don't want it to end--I didn't want any of them to end. 😉 Seriously, those kisses made me want to attack my husband!! Haha! I'm usually a 'read the book once' kind of person but I already know that I could read your books over and over again and again!! Your books will definitely be added to my library! Thank you for sharing your beautiful talent of writing! I believe in the power of a kiss! 🙂
— Kelli, Idaho
Marcia, I second everything that has been said previously to my comment. You are the best! And one other thing. When reading one of your books, there is so much more to a kiss than on the movie screen because you are able to put thoughts and feelings of the participants into the kiss. It is good to see the kiss, but when reading, we can almost feel the kiss. That is one of the things that makes your stories so real and loved by so many of us.
— Sylvia Anderson, Springville, Utah
You are such a tallented writer - I suppose that should be such an insightful writer. You manage to find the right balance in your heroes of being a man and still understanding what a woman needs. No flopsy heroes nor macho ones! I find I'm devouring your books and someday I'm hoping I'll get to see New Mexico - you make it come alive in your books. Thank you for livening (is that even a word?) up long Scottish winters!
— Alice, Highlands, Scotland
Marcia Lynn McClure captivates the hearts of many with her fantastic stories and devilishly handsome men! She has inspired many, including me, to never give up hope that your love is out there and to always keep fighting for what you want. I will be forever grateful to her. She has brought much joy and giddiness to my life through her novels. I will always read her novels and she will always be my favorite Author. She is that awesome.
— Channing , Colorado
You are my absolute favorite author! I have read all ur books over and over I could never get sick of them. I hope that u never quit writing. I constantly check my email for ur newsletter hoping that it says new book out! I love everything about ur writing and just wanted to say THANK U!
— Adrian Jensen, utah
I LOVE your books. The stories are imaginative and exciting. I pull out your books whenever I need a pick me up. I read them when I want to have a good feeling in my heart. I love the goodness in the stories. They are what every girl could dream of! Thank-you for sharing your talent. It brightens my life. I also want to thank-you for the e-books. I know how you feel about real books and I love them as well, but Ebooks are in my price range right now. This allows me to get more books. So thank-you! Love, Amber
— Amber , AZ
My mom and I love romances! For a while my mom was searching for something appropriate that she could share with her fourteen-year-old. Not the easiest thing in this world! But your books are clean, funny, and hoplessly romantic! I love them. I hope you never stop writing!
— Sarah N., Idaho
I have always loved to read. Espeially romances. i want to someone to love me the way lochlan loves faris in the highwayman of tanglewood or like Johnny loves Vivianna in Beneath the Honeysuckle Vine. I hate how most of the romances today all have pretty bad and gross things in them. But your books make me laugh, cry, smile, sigh, and wish i had a love like that. I am only 19 but i can already see how different i am from other girls my age. I want true love, romance, and lots of sweet, hot kisses. Other girls just want to have a one night stand. i want a love that will last an eternity. you have given me hope with all of your books. Thank you DONT STOP WRITING BOOKS
— Judy Boyer, Price, UT
I can not believe how lucky I was to stumble upon your books. I love them. I have never been a romance novel fan. But I am hooked on your books. They make me smile every time. I truly enjoy them! Thank you for writing books that allowing me to hope there are real Men out there and that I may be able to find one for myself one day. Thank you. 🙂
— Christie , Utah
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE YOUR BOOKS!!!!!!! They are everything I want in a romance and more! The heroes are amazing and everything you'd want in a guy, then the heroines are beautiful and completely wonderful! I can't get enough!!!!!!!!! I've reread all the ones I have while waiting to get more! I love you and your work! Don't Stop!
— T.M. Huffman, New Mexico
Marcia- I absolutely LOVE your books!! You are truly my favorite author of all time. I own every one of your books and enjoy re-reading each over and over again. Your characters are like old friends of mine now that I enjoy going back and getting re-acquainted with. I have also been blessed to meet you and get to know you a bit and know that you are not only an amazing author, but a beautiful person, inside and out! Yours is truly an amazing gift and I am so grateful that you share it with the rest of us! Thanks for all of the fun escapes from the real world! Love you!!
— Jamie H., Idaho
Hello, this is just a thank you for your wonderfully, romantic novels. A neighbor and friend introduced me to them in December and I have been devouring them ever since! They are fun and exciting and clean! Thanks!
— Terri P.
Just wanted to tell you that your books always give me a boost and help me reboot! So you have added tons of sunshine and sprinkled sugar to me in my life whenever I am having a bad day! Hang in there you are an amazing author and for sure my favorite! I read your books over and over and can never get enough so thanks again!
— Terri Hancock, Ogden, UTAH
"FINALLY!!!" That's what I thought when I read my first book of yours (Dusty Britches). A book with a GOOD story line, character's I loved, enough romance to be exciting, but completely clean so as not to be embarrassing and demoralizing, and a VERY important thing to me....A HAPPY ENDING! Thanks for your incredible books and the inspiration and excitement they provide for me!!!
— Emily W., Greeley, CO
I love that I can actually read and reread, and reread your books and they never bore me. I haven't ever been able to do that with any other author! Thank you!
4 yrs ago I was a 9th grader at San Rafael Junior High and i read the Highwayman of Tanglewood and it instantly became my favorite book and then you came to my junior high and i got to meet you and i have loved your books ever since. You are now at the top of my favorite authors list. And the Highwayman is still my favorite book (though The Trove of the Passion Room and Kissing Cousins are a close second and third). Im now in college and i still love them. Thank you for writing these heartwarming books.
— Judy, USU Eastern campus, price, utah
For years my sisters and I would get so frustrated reading romance novels and have to skip over parts that should not be in books! And then we discover Marcia! What a treat! Reading a MLM novel we don't skip over anything... in fact, we usually go back a re-read parts! Thank you so much for sharing your talent! We are life long fans!
— Tamara W., Keller, TX
Wow! I started reading your books this last summer when a friend gave several of them to me. I especially like the older time period books over the modern ones but I must say I really enjoyed the Chimney Sweep Charm. Just finished reading the Rogue Knight. The stories are great leaving plenty to the imagination and I have found that I don't get as much accomplished at home for reading them. Thank you for providing "clean" romance with just enough "extra" to satisfy the bit more. My family looks at me funny when I start laughing while I'm reading and shakes their heads. I read Sudden Storms and laughed thru a great deal of it. Your books are so well written that I can see some of the places in my mind very clearly. After visiting several western ghost towns in Montana last summer your towns and western country are very visible when I read. Thank you and pray continue onward with many more!
— Mary Gouge, Iowa
I have read every one of your books and I just discovered them last year! It is so hard to find clean romances that still have the romance that is desired in them as well. Thank you for providing wonderful escapes with your books. I look forward to your new releases and please keep them coming for as long as you can! In the meantime, you know it's a good read when you enjoy it again and again. 🙂
— Kate, Coastal Maine
I just wanted to say thank you for your books! They are always so enjoyable and I can feel my senses soaring through your characters. In fact I'm always disappointed because I can't put them down, so I always finish them too quickly! I appreciate your work.
— Marcia B.
I never thought that I would have such a love of reading until I stumbled across your books. Every time I read them, it is like for the first time over again. I enjoy them just as much, and I fall in love with them all over again! Your books have made me believe that true love is real. You have shown me a way through brighter pastures of love instead of hiding away and being stubborn on how love should be another way. You have given me hope to dream away.
From the very beginning, I knew that these books were going to change my life forever. And they did! Thank you so much, Marcia! You are an amazing author!!
Marcia, you are my ulitimate all time favorite author. If you knew me, you would know how complimentary that is. I love reading, everyone here in Orangeville think im crazy. I always have a book in my hand and it is almost always one of yours. Whenever someone asks me for a recommendation of a book I say the highwayman of tanglewood or dusty britches or weathered too young.
— Judy , Orangeville, UT
I love to read and love a veriety of books. I have recently discovered your books and I can honestly say I have reread your books over and over again almost exclusively. They way you write is like watching a movie for me!!! Thanks for helping me add more romance to my marriage!!! Thank you!
— Sharon L
I have become somewhat of a zealot. I have found myself divulging my great love and admiration for Marcia Lynn McClure to everyone who may or may not enjoy reading. I LOVE her whimsical way of casting spells of charm, hope and romance...with that perfect dose of whit and humor in her marvelous storytelling skills. She serves up the most satisfying helping of sizzling smooches...ever...and leaves the rest to imagination...which is where it ought to be. I love this lady! I love that she has embraced her talent for weaving tales of ALL kinds...that all deal with the tender heart and provides a perfect "Distraction" through her ink. She is simply delightful in every way! Just like her stories! Can I get an "AMEN!" from the back??? =)
— Nikki, Lehi, UT
I just received my Midnight Masquerade ebook and I am dancing around and cheering! (Quietly, the kids are asleep.) Thank you, thank you, thank you for putting in so much work to make my days a little bit brighter! I love reading them, and I can't wait to get started on this!
— Jenna Kelley, Utah
I have been a Marcia Lynn McClure fan for years now! I have read every single one of your books many times! I know that when I sit down to read one of your books that I will not be disappointed and I never have. I LOVE good, clean romance!! Marcia, keep them coming--you are the best!!!
— Becki K., United States
I"M HOOKED! I've never been an avid reader. Always something more important in my life always busy. Until about a year ago maybe a year and a half. The thing is it's sometimes hard to find good clean fun intriguing books. Well I'm down and have to stay down with my last pregnancy. By compllete chance I came upon Marcia books the first one I read. If I read a book have to be interested beyond the first pararaph, or I put it down.
I have been intranced, bewitched, and absolutely fallen in love with Marcia's books. I intend to read every single one. I LOVE THEM! I WILL TELL EVERYONE POSSIBLE! Clean, fun, mystery, intrigue, Love, crying, laughing out loud litterally. I'm completly hooked!
Thank you for being such a creative, writer and having the courage to put yourself out there, with your beloved characters and heart. It's saving me in this pregnancy.
— Teya Peck, ID
I seriously love every single one of your books. I have read them all multiple times and I just love them! As a teenage girl these are the perfect books for me. Thank you for being a great Author and a writer to look up to for what I want to do in the near future. Thank you for your wonderful books!
— Cassidy , Utah
I just wanted to tell you that I love your books and how good they make me feel. When I'm having a bad day, I love to just pull out one of your books and read it. Thank you so much for being such an awesome writer and sharing your talent with other women.
— Kadie A.
I have read every single book you have published!!! You have a way of story telling that gets you intrigued from the first page and doesn't stop until the end. Very good and well written books!! I love all the kissing too 🙂
— Amber Powell, Nebraska
McClure's books are absolutely the most romantic books ever written! They make me chortle, sigh, and squeal over the delightfully spicy heroines and yummy hero's, much to the annoyance of my family and friends. These books have really given me a sense of happiness, not just because it's garaunteed to be well-written but because it's also a book I can recommend without feeling a tinge of guilt because the book has some nasty scenes. Books with romance and no sex are exceptionally hard to find and as an 18 year old girl it can be difficult not to succumb to the ease of picking a trashy romance novel just because its the new trend.
It's really hard for me to completely express my fervent gratitude to Mrs. McClure for writing these books. They give me such a feeling of worth and remind me that I don't need to find a guy just to have a guy. I know that I'll get that passionate love someday and I can wait patiently, knowing that I don't need to put myself out, reminded that he will find my modesty a treasure and not an annoyance.
There are so many things I can say, such as Mrs. McClure's Author Notes. Mrs. McClure sometimes talk about some really personal things which comfort and inspire me. The first example that comes to mind is in Midnight Masquerade when Mrs. McClure talked about the time in your life when Mrs. McClure started to withdraw from society. I don't know how but this was extremely helpful to me because I have always had problems on behaving appropriately in social settings and picking up social cues. Every day is a challenge that exhausts me. I mess up so often with my sharp tongue, rash actions ( whether for good or ill), and social blunders I have my own little nickname for them: "wince-worthy moments" because looking back I can't help but, well, wince. Knowing that someone like Mrs. McClure suffered difficulties similar to mine and triumphed gives me a last hope.
I just wanted to make sure that Mrs. McClure knows how appreciative I am for all the hard work she had obviously put into writing these fantastic books. Thank you so much. I am incapable of expressing the depths of my gratitude to you. Thank you and please keep writing!

I read my first Marcia Lynn McClure book a few weeks ago and I am hooked, Have read about ten of them so far I only had one I did not Love, about Civil war and ghosts (a sad tell most of the way through), but Seriously, I have been desperately trying to find your books on Audio so I can justify my time, listening in the car, on trips, doing laundry, waiting in lines and at Dr's offices. Please tell me they will go audio and soon? Barb
I love to read and reread all of Marcia McClure books and look forward to read her next one. It makes my day when I can read a clean happy ending book that gives me a fill good filling in my heart. I hope to introduce her books to my dauther and her friends.

There is nothing better than a good romance on a crisp-air day. Opening the windows and listening to the outside while laying on the couch reading a Marcia McClure book. I find myself ignoring my children just so I can see what happens next in every book that I have read. My roommate introduced me to Dusty Britches two years before I started dating my husband. I must say, it is definately all about the kissing and the way your hero is always there when you need him. Thank you for the way you can make the 'zing' between characters ignite with such taste. Keep writing!!!

I have just finished my first of your books (The Visions of Ransom Lake) and I really really enjoyed it. I just wanted to thank you for letting me have a very nice time and making me feel each of the scenes as if I were the heroine. As we say in Argentina "¡¡¡¡Sos una genia!!!!" [You are a genius!]— Soledad, Argentina
Dear Mrs McClure, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your wonderful books! They are full of love and hope and they give such positive vibes to their readers! The first book of yours that I read was "The fragrance of her name" and I couldn't believe how much it touched my soul. Reading your books is the perfect conclusion to a hard day's work. I don't even mind the insomnia! The next day I am full of smiles at my work and with my family. I hope you keep writing for many years to come.

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful talent with us romantics at heart. I love that you have author notes at the end of each...not only is it fun to read interesting facts about the book itself but you share so much about yourself that I truly feel like we are dear friends.
— Nikki B.
Every heroine reminds me of my sisters or roommates in collage. The dialogues, the jokes, insecurities, and the secrets shared with sisters and friends hit really close to home and remind me when I was young. I have read each book 3 times and couldn't fathom picking a favorite. But I can say... Marcia Lynn McClure is my favorite author!
— Katie, Utah

I am hooked on her books. I can't stop thinking about each story I read and I actually wish I could BE in them...there isn't a word that comes close to the praise she deserves for her creativity...AWESOME comes close...thanks so much Marcia!

I love Marcia Lynn McClure! I love historical romance but I don't like the vulgarity or explicitness in so many of them and I'm so excited that I found an author who puts plenty passion and romance into her writing and characters, yet does so with class and honor. Thank you Marcia Lynn McClure!!! 🙂
— Sarah, Micronesian Pacific Islands

I have read and reread all of your books and can't wait for the other 2 to be released some time this year. (The wait is excruciating!!!!) ;0) You are our favorite Author! Thanks for all that you do!

— Wendy Williams, Utah
I love your books! They are beautiful, clean romances, and I've read every one that I can get my hands on. You are an amazing writer. Keep it up! Thank you!
— Celine C., Utah
My first Marcia Lynn McClure book was The Whispered Kiss, and after that I couldn't help but read it again...and again...and again! i also took the time to read five more, including The Heavenly Surrender, my all time favorite book. I love how Marcia can transport me into the book with the characters; I can see and feel everything they can. It's simply magical. But I think what makes Marcia's books so beautiful is the fact that the characters really fall in love, and don't just lust after one another. It really does inspire true romance.
— Alexis H., California
I love these books!!! I just cannot put them down whenever I pick them up. They are so fun and addicting. I have reread them over and over!
— Jasmine H, Utah
Dearest, Marcia. I can't even begin to tell you how incredible "The Stone-Cold Heart of Valentine Briscoe" was. The stories you compose are always uplifting, suspenseful and eye opening. You have really outdone yourself with this one. With every story you write you give your readers so much to look forward to. I myself want to thank you for always bringing light, love, and happiness into my life. Your novels are so much more than just books they are influential stories that stay with you and touch your heart forever. Thank you for sharing your talent with the world.
— Taci , Utah
The only problem when I read your books is that I CAN'T PUT THEM DOWN! You make me happy Marcia Lynn McClure!
— Dawn S.
All of your books are magical adventures for me and each time I reread them, your characters and writing leave me awe. They are very treasured and I can only hope to become half the writer you are. Thank you for sharing your magnificent talent with me.
— Emily P.
I am so Happy that I came across your books in Amazon when I was searching for Historical writers. After reading "Beneath the Honeysuckle Vine" I was hooked and have enjoyed as many books that I can get of yours to read. Marica You have a way of bringing back the good old romance that makes the heart flutter and gives you goose bumps. Thank you so much for such wonderful story lines that actually make you feel you are right there in the story with them. Keep the writing Coming as you make so many Happy.
— Brenda Barrow, Australia
It's always Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!!! ...but in a GOOD way :).
Oh what can I say that hasn't already been said?! I want to say thank you, thank you - for sharing your gift and talent of writing. I thank you for keeping the writting wholesome and worthy of reading! I love reading so much more, when I finish feeling uplifted -- not frustrated by wasted time because the author threw in one passage or another that ruined the whole experience!!! I don't have to worry about that with your writing...I only worry of neglecting all else, when I fall into the wonderful worlds created by Marcia :)!!
— Cate, UT
I enjoy your books and have read most of them at least twice if not more. The Trove of the Passion Room was also another great book. Thank you for your uplifting, clean books!
Oh my heck! My mom introduced me to Marcia in this past April. I read Kissing Cousins first and could not stop! I devoured them, one by one. I have read all of them, all 38 as of today. I love them dearly and I don't know how I'll ever find the right guy because I'll end up comparing them to Maxim, Justice, Swaggart, Broderick, and sooo many more of my favorite, unfortunately, fictional guys. I love MLM!! <3

When I'm having a rough or exhausting day, (or any day, really) there is nothing I like to do better than curl up with a wonderfully fun and romantic book written by Marcia Lynn McClure. I've read all of them several times and can't get enough!
— Stephanie , United States
I received my Kindle Christmas of 2010 and have since become obsessed. After reviewing my 200plus purchases since then I noticed a pattern....I had bought several of Marcia's books. So then I started searching strictly for her books and i'm hooked/obsessed on them. I read two just yesterday while i had a rare day off from college/work/family (i "pretended" to be sick so everyone naturally let me be) These books are so wholesome, light and funny that it's hard not to like them! I'd rather read about a steamy kiss than any of the more detailed (quite raunchy actually) stuff anyday! The way she describes her kisses gets my heart to palpitating! Marcia, i love your books and your views on life. Keep on bringin it girl!
— April Carter, Beech Bluff, TN
I just want you to know how much I enjoy your books. I read them over and over again. It’s my escape. I am amazed that you can think up so many different plots. The details and quirks you give to your characters make them endearing and real.
— Heidi S.
Marcia! I just adore you, and your stories. Ever since I was little I started reading your books at the age of 13. My mom could NEVER get me to read, and my grades were failing because of it. She lent me a book of yours, and I was HOOKED!! After that I wanted every single book. And since then, I have collected every single one you have ever written! I have fallen in love with your writing, your stories, your characters, and most of all, your heroes!! I will never stop reading your books. They have brought so much light to many dark days, and just hope in those moments where there wasn't any. Thank you for being you! Thank you for inspiring me and many others with the written word. <3
— Ashley W, Arizona
I love each and every one of Marcia's books! Just about any romance fantasy you can ever have is covered. A knight in shining armor, check, a pirate, check, a masked hero, check, a handsome cowboy, check, and the list goes on and on. I love how these books are romantic, passionate, and yet clean. They never go over the line. It's almost impossible to find good, clean romantic escapes anymore these days.
