Tierney’s smile broadened as she read the front of the card aloud. “A special day demands a special gift…a gift sent with loving intent. Therefore, for you on your special day, I present to you…” Tierney paused long enough to open the card and then read, “One Classic Latin Lover with a very special message. I love you, baby sister. Alec.”
As fast as she could, Tierney tore the wrapping paper on the front of the tall package to reveal a plastic handle attached to the box with the words, Pull This, written nearby.
Pulling on the handle, Tierney gasped as the front of the box broke away to reveal Alec’s gift—one classic Latin lover!
There inside the large box stood a man—not a cardboard cutout man but a real man. And, oh, what a man it was! Tierney’s mouth hung agape as she studied the man standing in the box. He was literally tall, dark, and incredibly, incredibly handsome! Dressed in a high end white shirt, black tuxedo, and black bow tie, the man owned black, loosely swept back…
I’m sure my reviews are completely biased when it comes to Marcia Lynn McClure. I absolute adore her and everything she has written. Her books are pure guilty pleasure reads for me. I love the kissing and swooning and old fashioned values the permeate all her books. When I read I see Marcia and get to know her better through her books as she pours a part of herself in to each and every one of them.
Again my only complaint with this one was that it ended too soon. I can never get enough of Marcia’s characters and storylines.
If you have not read Marcia before I don’t recommend starting with this one. Start with Visions of Ransom Lake, A Crismon Frost, Shackles of Honor or The Heavenly Surrender. Or if you prefer contemporary try Kissing Cousins or An Old Fashioned Romance.
Marcia has captured the swoony feeling of young love which when combined with the playful back and forth bantering of the characters makes for a delightful read. A great holiday read but could easily be enjoyed any time of the year.
