Marcia Mcclure is one of the best writers of CLEAN Romance I have ever read. The kissing scenes leave you feeling tingly and her heros say all the things that women wish their man would say to them without being all sappy and unrealistic. This story is about a young girl named Angelina "dusty" who falls in love with her father's ranch hand at the tender age of 14. The hand Ryder is quite a bit older so to save himself from being a "pervert" he leaves the ranch and returns a few years later to she how she has grown up. The seperation has left dusty bitter. There are suprises in store for Angelina's entire family as they all learn how to open their hearts to love. LOVE, LOVE, LOVED it!!!!!!!!!

Be sure not to miss Marcia's other outstanding novels. She's the best!!!!!!!!

In this story, Angelina "Dusty" Hunter is now a heartless woman who will have nothing to do with men, save her father. Her heart was betrayed at the tender age of fourteen, when the cowboy she loved, Ryder Maddox, left her fathers ranch. Then he unexpectedly shows up again years later, and many things have changed. There are some bittersweet setups for Dusty's father and her little sister Becca to find romance as well, but Ryder intends to win back Dusty's heart this time, and to stay at the ranch for good. That is, if her heart can be softened and if his dangerous past doesn't catch up with him first.

I would give any of Marcia's books no less than FIVE STARS, because that's what they all deserve. It is absolutely amazing, the writing skill of this woman. She can weave a spell with her magical words and transport you to the exact time and place of the story. It is beautiful historical romance, but without smutty trash or preachy Christian ties. It's filled with sweet kisses, healing kisses, promising kisses. If you're looking for an amazing romance story that will keep you riveted from beginning to end, this is it! Page one will pull you in and you won't be able to put it down till the early hours of the morning. You won't regret buying this book.

If you feel the offers are too expensive or the books are unavaliable, try Googling her name or look for her publishing company, Distractions, Inc. All her books are avaliable for under $20 at her website and are worth every penny. Spread the word, because Marcia is entirely too underrated and overlooked.

Marcia has done it once again! Dusty Britches is one of my all time favorites! The love stories in this book just make your heart happy when you read them. It is so rare to be able to read a romantic love story and be able to actually feel the love and passion of the couple, without all the smut! You actually feel like you are there in the story.. what a great escape! Marcia has a way of describing the kissing scenes so well, because let's face it.. it is in all honesty, "all about the kissing!" Thanks Marcia for this great western love story of Angelina "Dusty" and Ryder!

Ryder Maddox was a farm hand at "Dusty" Angelina's father's ranch. At that time the two young children could play innocently together. However, when Dusty was around fourteen years old, Ryder, meanwhile around twenty, decided that he had to move on because he was sure he wouldn't be able to play only innocently with Dusty. In any case, he broke Dusty's heart and the playful, resourceful and vivid child turns into a hard woman without any self-confidence. After five long years Ryder meets Dusty's father accidentally and accompanies him home only to find out that Dusty has changed. Can he help her to re-discover her true self?

The main characters were well enough developed. Ryder was the perfect hero. His patience and the way he tried to "resurrect" the "old" Dusty was just great. However, Dusty's back and forths were rather tieredsome, especially because her dilemma lasted nearly throughout the whole book! A twist towards the end of the book saved the heroine from being completely unworthy of a man like Ryder.

The plot of this Western Romance was very simplistic and straight forward. There were two further sub-plots involved, which were equally simple. In any case, the whole mix was pleasurable and entertaining - but nothing else.

If you like very romantic Western Romances, were only kisses (and nothing else) are exchanged, you might want to read this one.

I got this book because of its solid five star rating with over 150 reviews, and all I have to say is, what's the matter with you people? The writing is really awful. I can't tell you how many times I rolled my eyes and stopped to read a portion to my husband so he could grimace along with me. And all the exclamation points... completely amateur-level writing.

The premise for this story was completely ludicrous. Oh, my, a fourteen year old got her heart broken! Pardon me while I pull out my tiny violin. I hardly think this is enough for someone to completely give up on life--especially for someone who was supposed to be so full of life before this point. Then the love of her life comes back, and she is oh so scared to love him... just ridiculous hogwash. The bare bones of the story--old love returns and they have to find each other again--isn't a bad idea, it just wasn't written believably.

And then there are the characters. All I wanted to do was slap Angelina Dusty Britches to China and back. And even Ryder was up and down, teasing and angry...why didn't he tell her right off why he was gone so long? I hate books that just drag out the story because people won't talk to each other. It's a boring, annoying, irritating plot device. The best written character was the little girl McKenna.

This was a book I had to force myself to keep reading, so it gets no stars for unputdownability.

The dialogue wasn't too bad when it wasn't just Angelina stammering. That's about the only star I'm willing to give on this one.

Really, people, you need to read a few higher quality books to raise your bar a bit. Clean romance doesn't have to be the bottom of the barrel.

A real disappointment. Shallow plot shallow characters. Redundant descriptions. Not worth the time I gave up half way through hoping it would get better. It just doesn't!

Omg.! I read to chapter 6 and wanted to shoot the heroine! She was so miserable even her own family couldn't stand her. Shame, as the hero had potential! Had enough by then so really if you finish the book good for you...
Would not recommend.

I fell in love with the characters from the start. This wasn't one love story, but three! Each couple has to fight their own inner turmoil to find true happiness and love. I'd definitely read another book by this author.

This wonderful story has some of the most passionate kisses that I have ever read in my life(her 'A Crimson Frost' tops them),and this is in a 'clean' romance book! Excellent job of character development,and a really good story,top off a five-star read IMHO. I don't think any fan of 'clean'[but non-religious] romance fiction would find fault with this book.
