Product Description

Product Description

Excerpt: Autumn gasped as she looked up to see the third cowboy, slumping in his saddle. Blood was streaming from a wound in his left leg and had begun to dry on his chaps. His shirt was soaked with blood at the left shoulder, and more dried blood was matting the hair on his forehead, eyebrows, and cheek.
“My apologies, mister,” the cowboy mumbled.
“Nothin’ to apologize for, son,” Ransom said. “But you better get on down here so Doc Sullivan can look you over.”
“Yes, sir,” the cowboy said.
Then, as he attempted to dismount, the full depth of his weakness from injury and no doubt blood loss was evident as he fell to the ground and groaned.
Autumn, owning a character twin to her mother, was not only prone to mischief and clumsiness but also thoroughly steeped with sympathetic compassion and empathy. Thus, instantly and without thinking, she dropped to her knees and moved the poor cowboy’s head to rest in her lap.
“He needs to breathe, for one thing,” she mumbled as her father hunkered down beside her.
Tenderly she tugged at the brown bandana covering the man’s nose and mouth, gasping when he opened his eyes and looked at her.
Autumn Lake’s heart skipped a beat—it skipped several beats—as she gazed into the deep blue of the man’s eyes…
As the cowboy gazed at Autumn a moment more, he smiled and said, “Heaven’s got better-lookin’ angels than I expected.” But it wasn’t his fevered mind’s words that astonished her. It wasn’t even the fact that the man obviously thought he was at death’s door, or beyond it. It was the sight of his smile—his broad smile, his unusually white teeth—and more than anything, it was the clefts he bore on each cheek—the bewilderingly attractive dimples the man owned—that left Autumn breathless and staring at him. This wounded cowboy was flabbergastingly handsome! He was violently attractive, and Autumn had to inwardly whisper to herself to draw a breath…

4.0 out of 5 stars Sequel to Ransom Lake 20 July 2013
By Kew
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a sequel to the book, The Visions of Ransom Lake. In this tale we follow the adventures of Ransom and Vaden's daughter, Autumn. We again meet the same small town characters from the previous book, so I enjoyed catching up with them again, especially Myra and Dan! I didn't enjoy this book quite as much as the first but it is still a good read. There is plenty of romance, adventure, and, of course, kissing. If you want a light, escapist, clean read; then the books by this author fit the bill perfectly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical to my senses! 1 Dec 2011
By loves to read - Published on
Okay girls Marcia out did herself this time, wow there are so many wonderful kissing scenes I could swoon lol. I love all her books, but this one is amongst my top favorites. Marcia has such a way with words such a gift that we get to be blessed to see come to life in print."Yes, the season of harvest and respite was a woman in Miss Autumn Lake's bountiful imagination-auburn-haired, with ribbons of pumpkin orange and sage green woven through. Her eyes were the color of ripe green apples and her lips such a perfect bittersweet that all men who looked at her desired to kiss her." I call that word candy for my senses. That is just the beginning of many, many beautifully written passages. Along with all these beautiful words we also get more of Handsome Ransom from "The Visions of Ransom Lake" and Vaden. I loved that they were in this story so we could see first hand how their lives unfolded. This story is mainly about their daughter Autumn, and she is quite a beauty inside and out. She longs to find that perfect man, that will cherish her and love her like her father loves her mother. She doesn't know if it will ever happen.....then a handsome stranger is wounded and in need of care. Autumn and her family help nurse him back to health. From here they build their relationship and love for one another. There is also a threat to Autumns well being, and a haunting ghost to add even more excitement to this story. I loved Autumn and her passion for life, and people, she is so sweet, and good. Her Handsome Cowboy she nurses back to health is strong, full of chivalry, flawed, had a rough up-bringing which makes him rather endearing. I loved that we were able to hear a lot about his thoughts! Great story to curl up in a blanket with hot coco and be caught up in the romance and kisses!

mild language
clean romance

I love all of Marcia's books and this one was as good as all her others! I only wish it was longer. I finish her books so fast - I can never put them down! It makes me sad to finish them so quickly because I never want the story to end! I loved reading about Ransom and Vaden's daugher and am so glad Marcia decided to give us another piece of their delicious love story!
Well done as usual!

1.0 out of 5 stars Big yawn... 29 Oct 2013
By tinan - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved Marcia Lynn McClure, but this novel was filled with nonsense. Dead boring, and overly sweet with unbelievable cuteness... Extremely corny and goose bumps worthy, not the good kind.

It's a bout a gorgeous girl met and fell in love with a gorgeous guy, and had gorgeous babies. Don't forget the gorgeous grandparents.. .. And.. Seriously, how many times can the author use the word 'bosom'?

I adored this! I actually read Gentry and Autumn's story before I got to Vaden and Ransom, but it worked out just fine. I love the descriptions of the fall season and I want my own Gentry James! :)
