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 the grandson of a wealthy client of hers, Maxim Mmmm.Maxim Love that name Sharlamagne and Maxim meet and then don t cross paths again for a few years But when they do, sparks fly Very, very cute story I loved the history and antiques dispersed throughout the story And I especially loved that WWII ball I could totally picture it Terrific descriptions I think my favorite find was the ball gowns Who wouldn t want to be Cinderella for a night I also love how Marcia puts so much of herself and her life into her stories they become so real that way content some mild swearing and some pretty juicy kissing scenes I still consider it clean 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 storyabout 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 beREAL with struggles and misunderstandings and jealousy, ect Bu 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 storyabout 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 beREAL with struggles and misunderstandings and jealousy, ect But in this story it seems she thought up every wonderful dream come true senerio she could think of and incorporated it in the story Not that that s a bad thing if you like a fairy tale, feel good story, but that s just not the kind of story I like to read I found it un realistic that Maxim hung with the crowd he did and was a virgin, and also that Sharla showed up to one party of his and all of a sudden he s a changed man, he never hung with the same girls again I thought that transition should have been slower and it would have given the storyconflict jealousy The one thing I DID like about this story was that, for once, it was maderealistic for a modern romance in that the couple struggled with trying not to go too far physically in the relationship In Marcia s other modern books they can kiss for hours and never seem to be tempted to go too far For Marcia s moderns I much prefer Kiss in the Dark , Love Me , and Kissing Cousins And the best of the best of her books are The Visions of Ransom Lake , Shackles of Honor , Dusty Britches , The Pirate Ruse , The Touch of Sage , The Highway Man of Tanglewood 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 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 feel she turned the sex appeal up HIGH in this book, going WAY beyond anyhing she s written which makes me chuckle because lovely Shar had THE hardest time saying the blushworthy s word.I absolutely ADORED the pairing of these two characters They were AH MAZING and such a perfect fit The sexual tension and chemistry between them built so well and when it exploded between them, it threatened to set my Kindle on fire I was in a constant state of swooning and fanning myself, smiling like a giddy school girl with a crush, all the while getting that rush of excitement I crave when reading romance Did I mention that Marcia ROCKED the romance in this story I seriously feel like a junkie now, shaking for my next fix and having no clue when it s coming It s hard to type this while I m still clutching my chest, sighing dramatically.Oh heck, I might as well write my review LOL When I first saw the cover, I immediately thought YAY, Marcia s released another historical I started thinking about how much I loved Shackles of Honor and The Highwayman of Tanglewood so I was giddy to start I ll admit, I was a little disappointed when I saw it was a contemporary But I ve learned to never doubt this trusted author to deliver so I pushed on and LOVED the story that developed.Sharlamagne is the daughter of an antiques dealer and as a result, loves all things historical, delighting in finding treasures and cherishing the past The story opens with her at a antiques show and meeting with her beloved friend, who has a surprise guest with her Blown away with how handsome he is, Maxim impresses both Shar and her sister, Gwen and they promptly put him on the list of guys they want Unfortunately, tragedy strikes, bringing Shar and Maxim together years later and this is where it becomes magical What seemed to be a friendship of convenience becomes one of need and heartfelt longing, and the attraction between them builds to a fevered pitch insert swoon Sorting through antique treasures, there s a room in the home Maxim inherits called the Passion Room that holds a very serious warning Beware all who enter and spend time because whether it s attraction, lust or a soul abiding love, people are pulled together where their passions ignite Joking around about it, Maxin and Shar enter and HOLY FREAKN COW I would GLADLY have exchanged spots From that moment on, things become intense and I enjoyed being lead to the very end where I was completely satisfied and happy.There are so many wonderful moments in this story Ones where I quickly highlighted on my Kindle for future use and some where I had to immediately share them with my BFF I ADORED the scene where Maxim takes Shar to the dance where they experienced their first kiss It was hard to read because I kept wanting to close my eyes and savor it, tracing my own lips as I imagined it Yep, I might have looked like a fool to those around me but my gosh it was SO GOOD I loved the little touches Marcia added to the story, the quirks and traits that she gave the characters that made them instantly likable You wanted Maxim and Shar to get together, begged for it, willed it and whooped out loud when things went well It really was an interactive read for me LOL I m a sucker for the banter that happens between love interests and I was in HEAVEN with this story The texting was funny and swoony all at once, and it was probably one of my favorite scenes in the entire book.I honestly can t gush enough There were a few things I had a hard time with editing stuff but once I was swept up in the romance of the story, it was all I could focus on and I didn t care I couldn t put the book down until it was over It met every one of my romance loving needs and I wouldn t hesitate to recommend it to others Happy reading everyone Yeesh I need one of those passion rooms November 2011 Once again, I ended up liking this onethe second time around Maybe because I

each other and fall in love w o any drama then you ll probably enjoy this 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

Shar was so much fun I loved her quirky ways and her absolute shyness and reserve downplaying her inner and outer beauty It was great watching their friendship evolve into oh so muchAnd the kissing Well, to quote a famous author friend of mine, It s all about the kissing This one doesn t disappoint The passion is off the charts while still keeping it clean Absolutely drool worthy I think I ll
