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!

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!

Thank you so much for having the courage to right clean and moral stories.
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.

You are great author! I love your books! I just happened to pick up one of your books at the library and I couldn't put it down! Thank you for keeping the books clean too!
— Julie, Utah
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!
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.

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!
