In this story, the wild and imaginative Vaden Valmont moves with her sister to the untamed West where her aunt and uncle need help with their mercantile. While she immediately catches the eye of Jerome Clayton, the well-mannered, ideal gentlemen and perfect beau of the town, Vaden's only interest is the mysterious and brooding town hermit, Ransom Lake, whom she continuously trips up, but whom eventually wins her heart.

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. Romantic angst seeps off of every page! 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 on her website and worth every penny. Spread the word, because Marcia is entirely too underrated and overlooked.

Marcia is the best romance writer around! Her books are clean, but oh, be still my heart! The Visions of Ransom Lake is my favorite so far. I couldn't put it down.

I absolutely love all of marcia's books. Vaden grows learns how much love can hurt, when you're hearts desire is not reciprocated. My favorite of her books, however is Shackles of honor.

10 STARS!!! I really loved this one! Vaden's zest for life and her being intrigued by the town "hermit" are so believable and heartfelt. I could feel the things she felt and could understand her frustrations, her excitments, ect. I loved the fall setting of this book. I enjoyed the situations where Ransom would be kissing her one day and then scowling at her the next - to me it made sense why he would do that. I am a sucker for a story where a man wants to keep himself distant from a woman for some reason, but struggles with doing that. I loved Vaden's Uncle, and also her relationship with her sister was so fun and cute and believable as well. Just a great story that I couldn't put down and would think about all day with my heart going pitter-patter, so anxious to get back to reading it again! Another favorite is Shackles of Honor by Marcia.

Clean with no yucky suprises. Lots of yummy kisses. This is my favorite "Marcia" book! Shackles of Honor is a close second. What can I say there is nothing like MmmmmmmmmMarcia's books. Read one and you have to read them all, again, and again until the pages fall out. Not exagerating at all. My litte sister got me hooked on her books. She can't write them fast enough as far as we are concerned.

When I want a romance story, I want more then just fluff. I want action, adventure, surprise, plot twists....and I get all of this when I read a Marcia McClure romance story. I am never disappointed, and again "Visions of Ransom Lake" holds up to this standard set by Marcia McClure. Bravo! Thank you for a well written story that captured my attention and delighted my senses.

Marcia Lynn McClure is one of the best authors I have found who write "clean" romance. I loved all of her books. This book was not my favorite (Dusty Britches and Heavenly Surrentder tied for that spot) Here is the basic overview of the book (taken from Marcia's website)...................
Youthful beauty, naive innocence, a romantic imagination thirsting for adventure...an apt description of Vaden. Vaden Valmont, who would soon find the adventure and mystery she had always longed to experience...in the form of a man.
A somber recluse, Ransom Lake descended from his solitary concealment in the mountains, wholly disinterested in people and their trivial affairs. But somehow, young Vaden managed to be ever in his way...either by accident or because of her own unique ability to stumble into a quandary.
Yet the enigmatic Ransom Lake would involuntarily become Vaden's unwitting tutor. Through him, she would experience joy and passion the like that even Vaden had never imagined. Yes, Vaden Valmont stepped innocently, yet irrevocably, into love with the secretive, seemingly callous man.
There were other life's lessons that Ransom Lake would inadvertently bring to her as well. The darker side of life...despair, guilt, heartache. Would Ransom Lake be the means of Vaden's dreams come true? Or the cause of her complete desolation?

I have read this book over and over! It is my absolute favorite MLM book! I love that I can imagine the beautiful settings, and that much of it takes place in the fall. Ransom is one of my all time favorite book characters because he is such a mans man. I love how rugged he is (in my mind!) but how tender and sweet he is, also. MLM sure knows how to create a good story!

It was a good story and the H was very troubled. I just kept thinking, that had he been more honest the whole issues would not have happened. Also Vaden was somewhat childish. It was hard for me to belive Ransom real could have feelings for such an immature girl.
