A Good-Lookin’ Man by Marcia Lynn McClure
However, in an instant—in less than a breath or the bat of an eyelid—the elusive pepper spray hiding somewhere in her purse was all but forgotten. For standing before her—right there before her, not three feet away—was the best-looking, most gorgeous, handsomest man she had ever seen in all her life!
“No, seriously,” she thought out loud with lingering bewilderment at how perfectly stunning the man standing before her was, wearing a worn pair of Levi’s, dusty cowboy boots, and a short-sleeved, plaid-print, snap-up shirt that hung open, revealing a bronzed, perfectly sculpted torso that was simply a mass of muscles. She was so unsettled by the man’s appearance that she wasn’t sure whether she was whispering aloud to herself or her car.
Either way, the man asked, “Beg your pardon, ma’am?”
“Oh…oh, nothing,” Fairlee said as she began rummaging in her purse again. But the man’s presence and appearance had entirely rattled her. As her awe-inspired brain obviously quit sending out instructions to the rest of her body, Fairlee felt her purse slip from her hands—watched in humiliated dismay as its contents tumbled out and scattered over the shoulder of the road.
Marcia Lynn McClure’s intoxicating succession of novels, novellas, and e-books, has established her as one of the most favored and engaging authors of true romance.

A wife, mother, grandmother, family historian, poet, and author, Marcia Lynn McClure spins her tales of splendor for the sake of offering respite through the beauty, mirth, and delight of a worthwhile and wonderful story.
My Review: a Good-lookin Man
I give it 5 STARS because at the beginning Marcia wrote that she wanted a good lighthearted romantic escape that would give her and others a book to giggle through. She succeeded.
I was smiling through the book. I could not believe some of the things that Fairlee would say right in front of Lash Lantry.
Fairlee is a college student who has come to stay with her Aunt and Uncle during the summer and help them. She talks to herself when she is alone or even when she is not. She is funny and warm.
This is the book to read if you want a short book that is a fun romance. It leaves you smiling from reading it. The characters are happy and bring laughter to each other and the reader. It is a clean romance.
At the back of the book Marcia tells where she got inspiration for certain scenes in the book.
After the couple of books that tore at emotions and were on deep issues it was so nice to read a fun romance.
Most of the book takes place on a farm were Fairlee is visiting in Colorado. Where Fairlee the city girl is glad to enjoy the farm except for eating the animals she has fed herself. Some things I knew about living on a farm and others I enjoyed learning about.
The pace of the book was good and fast.
I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review of it and be part of its Blog tour.
