Book Description

For Katie Matthews life held no promise of true happiness. Life on the prairie was filled with hard labor, a brutal father, and the knowledge she would need to marry a man incapable of truly loving a woman. Men didn’t have time to dote on women—so Katie’s father told her. To Katie, it seemed life would forever remain mundane and disappointing—until the day Stover Steele bought her father’s south acreage.
Handsome, rugged and fiercely protective of four orphaned sisters, Stover Steele seemed to have stepped from the pages of some romantic novel. Yet, his heroic character and alluring charm only served to remind Katie of what she would never have—true love and happiness the likes found only in fairytales. Furthermore, evil seemed to lurk in the shadows, threatening Katie’s brightness, hope, and even her life!
Would Katie Matthews fall prey to disappointment, heartache and harm? Or could she win the attentions of the handsome Stover Steele long enough to be rescued?

Sweet romance, clean. Morality is still important. True love, not about one more sexual experience that was better than all others before. The characters have some depth. It's not insipid, just interesting and sweet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Caution: Hankies needed! November 28, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked this book very much. (Despite the crazy names- I still loved the characters). Katie was such a great h and Stover was a GREAT H... More Heroes should be like Stover, he was so sweet and respectful but he still had a certain sex appeal. Jared and Pillar were fantastic too, my heart went out to Pillar each time she became self-concious about her "deformity"... This whole book was just filled with great characters- minus Katie's father and Hillary... Both couples relationships were so sweet to read.. and it BROKE my heart towards the end... DEFINITE TEAR JERKER!! One reviewer mentioned it but never would I have thought THAT would happen..I was screaming at the computer (Kindle PC is amazing)with tears in my eyes.. The author pulled it off magnificently :) LOVED the epilogue

**POSSIBLE SPOILER**

Although I really liked this book it left a few things open.. What happened to Hillary after their last incident? Was it ever said why the murderers killed the girl in the other town?

This was my first book by this author but it wont be my last.. Ive already went onto her website and ordered another book (P.S. Does anyone know when more of her books will be on Amazon?)

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Swoonworthy Romance! May 29, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This was such a delicious story - from beginning to end. I love reading Marcia McClure because I can always guarantee reading some of the juiciest kisses imaginable whilst being wrapped up in the snuggly feeling of romance. Even now, I'm sighing heavily because this story has left quite an impression. I love the way Marcia captures those tender moments between two people, especially as sparks are beginning to fly and I love her stories that are set in historical time periods. I wasn't always a fan of westerns... but I'm telling you - I love this authors cowboys.

Set in the old west, in a small US town on the prairie, Katie dreams away her day waiting for her prince to come and rescue her from the drudgery of her life. Living with an abusive father, she doesn't hold much hope for escape and with the slim picking of decent, eligible men in town, Katie is somewhat discouraged. This all changes though with the arrival of sexy Steel Stover (sigh doesn't his name sound magnificent!) Straight away he captures her attention and with the cutest triplet sisters, she makes quite the impression on him as well. He takes one look at her dressed up in wild flowers and whether he'll admit it or not, Steel is SMITTEN.

This wonderful story takes you through those breathless moments where they flirt back and forth and Steel endeavours to put a blush on Katie's cheeks. One of my FAVORITE scenes is when he catches her up in the tree house, spying on her older brother "sparking" and being the man to never let a golden opportunity to go by, Steel uses it to teach Katie a thing or two on kissing. Totally swoon worthy and those magical kisses are just one of many in the book. I love the way he pursues Katie and the great feeling you get as you watch two fun characters fall in love.

1.0 out of 5 stars Kiss and tell July 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
You know, I hardly EVER give a book one star. But this book...*sigh* where do I start?

First off, I'm not against light reads. I read my share of them and most of the time find them enjoyable. But there's light and there's light. This is dandelion fluff light. So light that the plot seems to have blown away into thin air.

M. L. McClure has her share of devotees but I should have listened more closely to the reviews. Very few comment on the plot. It's just "all about the kissing". And folks, seriously, it is. I mean, there's little else. It's like the author draws two characters(so they can kiss) Oh no! Make it four; (you know, more to kiss); there. Ok, now where can they kiss? Lets see...how about a prairie kiss? Then lets go to the river and have a river kiss? Hey, meet me by the barn and we'll kiss again! And have you seen the tree house? Well, let me SHOW you! *kiss kiss*. It was THE WHOLE STORY!!! And each kiss (and lead up) may be two or three PAGES!.

Hey, I like romance as much as the next person but give us a REASON TO CARE.

And it was so Disney. Enter poor clumsy heroine and hero hunk. Hero hunk loves poor clumsy heroine over all others (though he can have his pick) for no reason other than she's adorable and he's older and wiser (and can teach her to kiss). He rescues her non stop through every scrape. She falls in a mud puddle. Guess who's there to pull her out? Enter abusive Daddy, Prairie Prince to the rescue!
She's being chased by murderers, have no fear, Prairie Prince is here (on his stallion no less).
*SPOILER* They kissed.

The one redeeming feature of this book is it's short. And free.

Still, I can't believe I read the WHOLE thing...

Another quick, clean and easy romance by Marcia Lynn McClure. I always look forward to reading her books and am so glad they have been released for the Kindle! I liked the secondary story of Jared & Pillar a lot too.

Great story, only thing I don't like is how often the women have to be rescued. That is why four stars instead of five.
