    • About 8 pm last night a wonderful surprise was awaiting me. An email from Marcia that contained a Kindle version of The Trove of the Passion Room. Despite being caught up in the middle of two other books I just had to start this one! And is always the case once I start a Marcia Lynn McClure book I have a hard time putting it down! Sleep was sacrificed and cleaning and errands had to wait so I could read this.The Trove of the Passion Room is classic Marcia Lynn McClure. I was not disappointed. Ev [...]


    • This has become one of my top 5 Marcia books. Don't get me wrong I actually love and have read and own all of them ( don't remind my husband). This is one of Marcia's contemporary stories mingled with the old, which I love.Sharlamagne works in her parent's small antique boutique shop along with her sister and parents. Sharlamagne loves people, is kind, sweet, and she loves old things. She loves old things not just because they are old but because of their story and the people behind the objects. [...]


    • I find I really struggle with Marcia's modern books that are written with no conflict in the relationship(besides a little self-doubt here and there), and also where she writes the story more about or for close friends. I think there is such a thing a puting too MUCH passion in a story, and that is what I feel she did here. You can tell Marcia is passionate about antiques, so that is ALL the story is about. I like a story to be more REAL with struggles and misunderstandings and jealousy, ect. Bu [...]


    • My review is to come but can I just say this. Marcia has always dazzled me with how swoony and delicious her men are and the kisses that make my knees melt. I went into this book expecting the same and was left with the following statement: "HOT DAMN!" I really feel that she has FAR outdone herself with this book. She's gone from swoony to SEXY swoony and it wasn't just my knees that were melting. Not only was Sharlamagne endearing but Maxim was compeltely edible and OOZED sexuality. I really fe [...]


    • (10/14) I re-read this again for Swoon Fest and I would have to agree with my previous review--it was a really fun story without much conflict. I did enjoy Maxim's thoughts and once again, the ball was my favorite part! There was some swearing and talk of sex (mostly about waiting until marriage and fighting to do so), along with some pretty passionate kisses. I would consider it technically clean for an older reader.(9/11) This contemporary story is about Sharlamagne, an antiques dealer, and th [...]


    • November 2011: Once again, I ended up liking this one more the second time around. Maybe because I knew what to expect? Anyway, it's a fun story and I really liked the characters. I liked that we were able to "hear" things from Maxim's point of view. Lots of great kissing and great chemistry between the two. A conflict free relationship, which is fun to read once in awhile.August 2011: I thought this was an enjoyable story. The main characters are likable and their relationship progresses w/o an [...]



    • When one of Marcia's books come out I just buy them. Yep. I don't check them out from the library and read them first because I know I will fall in love and end up buying them anyway. This is another treat I fell in love with. How dang cute is that slightly crazy, have to love her just as she is Elisaveta? She is the darling grandmother that every kid wants to grow up with. Lucky Maxim! I lovvvved him. I was thoroughly disgusted by his parents and had so much empathy for his somewhat shallow lif [...]


    • I might actually rate this 3.5? I really LOVED the first half of this book!!! I loved the back and forth between Max and Shar. I thought it was so great. I even squealed a couple of times!!! I do wish there would have been a little bit of a better ending. There were a few things, in my opinion, that needed to be wrapped up a little better. Like Max's parents. I think there could have been more to that. I was a little uncomfortable about what Max's grandma's dream.who wants their grandma dreaming [...]


    • Ok so I love all her books, this one included. But there were some minor annoyances that could have easily been remedied. Some of the story felt like filler, a lot of repeating the same information over again in a slightly different way. It started off a lot slower than I am used to her in her books, not a bad thing, but I am used to jumping right in to the action. This book takes a bit before getting to the "passion." The passion bits were good though. Some friendly farm language, didn't really [...]


    • I have been waiting for this book forever and it was given to me as a gift from my mom. I was so excited to read this book. So, this story was just okay for me. This story did not reflect the great story telling that Marcia is known for.I honestly think some of names did me in. I also felt that Marcia needed to develop Maxim character more and the drama in the story was anti-climactic. The story just did not come together for me. Lots of little things did not add up. I loved all the kissing! Thi [...]


    • This book is another new favorite of mine from Marcia Lynn McClure! She truly knows how to write a book that pulls you into the story and makes you feel as if you just made new friends with these characters. I loved everything about this story. The passion with this couple was amazing, and fit the story so well. Very well written, and I hated to see it endeven though I loved the ending as well! Just when you think she can't possibly top the last book she wrote she does it again, and I love it!!


    • OH MY STARS FOR THE LOVE OF LIZA!!!!!!!!One of the best book by Marcia Lynn McClure!!!!! I am in love.ank you so much for sharing the story with us. i loved the characters.loved the WWII dance.(would really want to go to one now) All the kissing made me have the thrill of being kissed.(that what i love about all her booksey all do the same thing.) so all in all Love, LOVE, LOVE this book!!!!!!!!


    • Oh, I loved this little treasure of a book! I loved all the antiques and the stories and the history. I loved the sweet steamy romance of Sharlamagne and Maxim. Their romance is how it should always be. I loved it! Girls if you haven't read this your missing out! Marcia, thank-you again for making me sigh and smile. I love your work and shall never grow tired of reading it!:)


    • I loved this one! LOVED! I love the antiques. I love the WWII stuff. It reminded me of my Grandpa who was a WWII vet. I love the main characters. I love the passion room. It sounds so s-word-y. :) It is obvious that McClure is passionate about this story. I think the where McClure is passionate about her subject matter it really takes the story to a whole new level.


    • Hmm I have mixed feelings about this book. It took me longer to really start feelin' it than most of Marcia's other books. But I liked that Maxim and Sharlamagne both had standards. But I liked the passion shared between them as well! Mrs. Tanner was like the coolest grandma ever. And the whole hickey thing made me laugh. It was a good book, but just not my fave. 3.5 stars


    • I have been waiting months ands months for this book to be released! I laughed, I cried and I found myself smiling throughout most of it! What a great story of passion on so many levels! Certainly, it is a treasure trove in and of itself! I am such an addict of Marcia's books! Loved the journey!



    • Loved it! So me! I loved all the vintagy-ness about it! And I am sooo jealous of the main character! It was just as wonderful as all her other books!



    • This is probably one of my favorite contemporary novels that Marcia has written. I am a big fan of Marcia Lynn McClure and almost always start my reviews with “this is a favorite of mine”. That being said though, I always prefer her historical over her contemporary novels. I just find the romance more believable and intriguing in historicals but I must say that this book was amazing! I completely bought in to the romance and loved every sweet and passionate second of it! The way the story is [...]


    • 4/29/14 - Re-read it and feel about the same as before. A little too much passion and language for me to truly enjoy it. 8/1/12 - Hmmmmmm.I had to let this marinate in my mind a little before giving it a review.Things I liked: the story, the characters, the kisses :o)Things I didn't like: Ok, I know people swear, and I don't mind a few in a book, but this was a little more than average, for a McClure book. All of her books have passionate kisses, but this book pushed the limits a lot for a "clea [...]


    • So good! Did I expect anything less? Answer: Nope-not really! While this wasn't my absolute favorite (Pirate Ruse being number one) it's still definitely on the top ten list! I love that Marcia can write a book for any time period! If it's olden days it's a lot of longing or smoldering looks and brief touches. If it's one of her modern books it super fun dating situations. From westerns to old english to modern day each book holds something special! In this particular book I loved the message of [...]


    • Not one of my favorites of Marcia. I struggle when she writes a modern story. She is so talented at the historical and western I wish this was a book set in Europe late 1600's. I get distracted with her use of modern terms like 'shorty' that loose me right away because it s not flowing right. I also struggle with the instant fall in love. In her first books it was all about the developing of a relationship like Shackles of Honor or Heavenly Surrender. They may have been instantly attracted but n [...]


    • Oh my (fanning myself) I love Marcia's books! This one was a little more passionate with much much more "s" word appeal ;-) LOVED IT! Talk about ssssteamy. Loved the characters, I laughed and cried but right now I have a permanent goofy grin I can't wipe off my face. Holy moly was that HOT and steamy! Keep those amazing books coming Marcia! U da bomb, and that book was exploding with passion! (As passionate as it can be and still be clean);) <3


    • Loved it just like I've loved all Marcia's books. In the beginning, I struggled with how much all the women characters "giggled". There was a lot of giggling. I have no objections to the actual giggling process, I just got sick of that word and the air-headedness it connotes in my head. But, I kept reading and the characters got less giggly and more real and I found myself laughing and crying with them. Loved this story!


    • I guess I'm more a fan of Marcia's earlier books. Her historical fictions are great! I haven't loved her modern romances much. There was absolutely no plot in this book- just a lot of antique talk and nonstop kissing for the second half. She didn't need to make excuses for her farm language. Repetition was tedious at times too. MLM has three more books coming out soon. I hope they are better. She is such a talented writer and one of my favorites!


    • I enjoyed this book more the second time. It's true my heart is in more of the western' s and such however there's just a deep truth to this book that I can't put my finger on. I read the authors notes this time around (which I have learned to absolutely love by the way) and I understand it more. Thank you for that.


    • I absolutely loved this book! I could not put the book down. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a good clean romance. It reminded me so much of how life was when my husband and I were engaged. The title of the book makes it sound like it is gonna be a trashy romance novel, but since I've read other Marcia Lynn McClure books I knew that it would be a clean read.


    • Wow! I loved it. I was a little skeptical at first because of the Title, but no, I loved it and now the title makes sense and I can love that to. I loved the main characters in this book. I loved the story, and the flow.
