I admit I'm a hopeless romantic.
This was a wonderful short story. My only complaint is that it was too short. 180 small pages easily read in less than 2 hours. Perfect for a lazy afternoon. Read after Marcia's book Desert Fire since it's about the next generation of McCalls.
August 2010: This was the sequel (kind of) to Desert Fire. It follows the son from Jackson & Annie. I thought it was a cute story, kind of uneventful and a little cookie-cutter. Brynn seemed really similar to a lot of other heroines in McClure books, I kind of wish she h...more
Reviewed as part of the McCall Trilogy:
I love Marcia's books. Romance books set in the 'Ole West are so fun to read. Ah! It was so romantic!! I read the first 2 books (Desert Fire and To Echo The Past) because I'd already read book 3. If you like old fashioned books where the man is handsome and protects the woman he loves, and the woman is sweet but spunky then you'll love these books. These are perfect to read during the month of love. :)
I love how the town store always seems to be the meeting place where the McCall brothers find their gals. The lovely Brynn Clarkston is new to the town and handsome Michael McCall is more than capable of making her feel welcome. It's love at first sight and each time they meet at the store and in other places only makes their fondness for each other that much greate...more
It is a poorly written story of two people falling in love from the olden days. I think this author is obsessed with the boys taking off their shirts, and the couple kissing, along with a bad guy that tries to kill someone and the boy is the hero.
I don't think that she does a good job with the period transition an...more
Brynn falls in love with Michael, but he is 22 and she is only 17. She doubts he can really feel the same about her, because of her age. Then Michael gets in a terrible scrape, and Brynn comes to his aid. Good book!
Pretty lame plot - they meet, they kiss, they decide to get married, the end. Same locations, similar villians. Good thing it was short so you don't waste too much time on it.
I'm still a fan, and I read these books for light, fluffy reading, but she is capable of giving a book more than that.
8/9/12 - Loved it, I just wish it was much longer...I got to the end and was so sad. I love her western books! The men are brave, and rugged, and invincible. Hey, it's fiction!
Moral Note: Passionate kissing, mild violence. No language.
