As promised...the reviews!

Alright, here's my reviews of "The Whispered Kiss" and "The Light of the Lover's Moon." Both by Marcie Lynn McClure.  I can't tell you enough of how much I loved these books.  

"Light of the Lover's Moon" Review
I first found this author by accident and I'm so very thankful that I did! "The Whispered Kiss" was my introduction to Ms. McClure and I have now started to work my way through all her delightful books! In "Light of the Lover's Moon." You find a childhood friendship that comes to mature love that transcends distance and time. The characters, Stoney and Violet are not only relatable, but hilarious and exciting. The plot moves smoothly with a grace that makes reading a luxury. The editing was great, I didn't find any errors, and basically the story drew me in like a vortex. I read it, then read it again simply because it was THAT good. And I appreciate that while Ms. McClure is FANTASTIC at spinning a passionate moment, the moments are tasteful and don't progress to anything that makes me want to skip pages. Thank you! It's hard to find an author that has the romance aspect of writing so powerfully written while abstaining from the more risque.

"The Whispered Kiss" Review
Ok, if you've read the product description, no offense to it's author, but it's no where near where it needs to be in describing the fantastic writing and story line of this book. I almost didn't purchase the book based on it's description, and I'm thankful I disregarded it and bought it anyway. This is honestly one of the best books I've read in a long time. The characters were fantastic, well thought out and easy to relate to. The passion was intense but nothing that made me skip pages. (Thank you.) I loved the redemptive storyline that allowed one to see how bitterness and anger can turn even beauty, into a total nightmare of a beast. I read the book three times within three days because I enjoyed it so much, then loaned it out to my sister who devoured it. So, honestly, this book is worth every penny.

Next in line for me is "The Rogue Knight" by the same author...don't worry, I'll keep you posted on that one too!!!
