    1. Classic McClure: lots of kissing. Sometimes I need to read something that I absolutely know will have a happy ending. This was a marriage of convenience story with a really creepy bad guy. With a bit of a gothic atmosphere this was a story I have read before and just for fun read it again. Definitely a keeper.

    2. I always have mixed feelings for this one. I’m a sucker for marriage of convenience stories; in this case Renee’s father is dying and asks Roque to marry his young daughter, but not consummate the marriage until she is eighteen (which is in about ten months). Renee thinks Roque was forced into marriage by both their fathers and Roque thinks she hates him for being like his father. There is some good chemistry and tension between the two. Roque’s father is a total creeper though; he is obse [...]

    3. This was Marcia's second book she wrote. I thought it was amazing but you could tell it was a premature version of her. I have heard people say she writes sappy romances! Im sorry but I like a good sappy romance. If you dont like the fairytale stuff then Marcias books aren't for you. I enjoy reading a good clean romance with a smile on my face and actually giggling through the whole thing! Loved it!

    4. Very enjoyable read. Holding this up to "Marcia" standards, this is more a 4 star, but since it is only her second book to write and she only did it for friends, and compared to other romance out there, it stands as a 5 star to me. The ending with the general I thought I had figured out what was going to happen, and then I was like, oh I guess not, and then, bam, it did! Liked how I got thrown off like that!

    5. This is my second time reading this book and just like the first time reading it I got sucked into the book. This book caught my attention on the very first sentence. Love books like this!

    6. The Author's Note reads:Written more than ten years ago, it is one of the stories on which I, “cut my teeth,” making it a treat for readers who enjoy a glimpse into my past. So, as I hold my breath,anxiously awaiting your response…enjoy!My response: I loved this short story! (It is short just 47 pages but it's full of everything I've come to love about MLM's writing) I've yet to read anything written by Marcia Lynn McClure that I didn't love. Since there are only about a half dozen of her [...]

    7. I just re-read this story in Romantic Vignettes. I felt kind of confused when I read the names "Roque" and "Renee." I didn't remember reading those names. Once I read the author's note it all made sense. Even though Merrick is a great name, I really like the name Roque, too.I enjoyed the story, but I'm with everyone else; that general really was a creeper. The rest of the characters made up for his creeperness. I especially like the scene where Renee "Madalynne" smashes the breakfast food on Roq [...]

    8. 10/12/14 - This one is a little more "lewdish" than her other onesbut still enjoyable8/12/12-Short and sweetisht the parts with the General of course, but a good romanced of course too short. Moral Note: Some passionate kisses, lustful thoughts & innuendos. Talk of heirs and "bedding" women.

    9. First I love Marcia Lynn McClure's novels, well at least everyone I have read but this one. The first few pages I was totally stocked thinking that this is going to be another great one for me. It didn't take long until I found the story disturbing. I just didn't care for the General and the fact that Rogue would stay and subject Renee to that type of lifestyle.

    10. WOW!Another of Marcia's books has brought respite to my world. This "lewd" book took me away for a bit. Loved the plot, the characters, and most especially, of course, the kisses!

    11. "The lewd book," as McClure dubbed it, is a fantastic historical romance novella. I absolutely loved how the characters were written. I'm a huge McClure fan, and this book didn't disappoint. Another 5 stars!!!

    12. This book made me shudder. To think, to have a father like that! It creeped me out, but the romance was so intense. And the herog is all I can say. An interesting way of taking a romance. I always liked a new view.

    13. This was a good book and I did enjoy reading it. The only problem is it is really and I mean really short and it just makes me feel like there is so much of the story missing. I hope to someday see a longer version of this book.
