It was my turn to choose a book for our book club to read a few weeks ago.
Deciding to support a fellow indie author, I went in search of someone who wrote well, had interesting tales to tell and was affordable.
I was excited beyond words to discover Marcia Lynn McClure’s books.
For our book club, I chose “A Crimson Frost.”
That turned out to be a very good decision. Her writing style is fun and lively and… clean! I so appreciated not being lambasted with foul language and tawdry scenes. She is a very talented writer with a gift for keeping you engaged in the story while creating a sense of intimacy with the characters.
This particular book is set back in medieval days. The Scarlet Princess Monet is loved by her father and the people in their Kingdom of Karvana. Monet is prepared to serve her kingdom at no matter the personal cost to her, including marrying whomever her father decided would be strong royal alliance. The first knight of the kindom, the handsome, raven-haired Crimson Knight, was all she could want in a man, even if she could not choose him.
When war is raged against Karvana, Monet’s father charges the Crimson Knight to protect the kingdom’s most valuable possession – The Scarlet Princess.
Forced into marriage and exile, the sparks fly between the two as they fall in love.
A wonderful, engaging read, I highly recommend this book.
I plan to choose another book written by Marcia to read soon. I have a feeling I am about to become a devoted fan. She writes everything from medieval love stories to contemporary romances.
Give one of her books a try if you like reading clean fiction.
