For Katie Matthews life held no promise of true happiness. Life on the prairie was filled with hard labor, a brutal father, and the knowledge she would need to marry a man incapable of truly loving a woman. Men didn't have time to dote on women-so Katie's father told her. To Katie, it seemed life would forever remain mundane and disappointing-until the day Stover Steele bought her father's south acreage. Handsome, rugged and fiercely protective of four orphaned sisters, Stover Steele seemed to have stepped from the pages of some romantic novel. Yet, his heroic character and alluring charm only served to remind Katie of what she would never have-true love and happiness the likes found only in fairytales. Furthermore, evil seemed to lurk in the shadows, threatening Katie's brightness, hope, and even her life! Would Katie Matthews fall prey to disappointment, heartache and harm? Or could she win the attentions of the handsome Stover Steele long enough to be rescued?… (more)

Portions taken from the back cover of the book because it says it so well: "For Katie Matthews life held no promise of true happiness. Men didn't have time to dote on women - so Katie's brutal father told her. To Katie, it seemed life would forever remain mundane and disappointing - until the day Stover Steele bought her father's south acreage. Handsome, rugged and fiercely protective of four orphaned sisters, Stover Steele seemed to have stepped from the pages of some romantic novel. Could Katie win the attentions of the handsome Stover long enough to be rescued?

This was a "feel good" story. You get done reading and you feel good because there is a happily ever after at the end. It is filled with romance, not just with Katie and Stover, but also with Katie's brother and Stover's oldest sister. The twins were also a delight to the story. I liked the fact that when Stover fell in love with Katie it wasn't out of pity, but because of her "joy of living, her disregard for what people thought, and the amusing nature of her silly antics. It was her love for her brother, her determination not to let her rotten father ruin her." It was because she was a lovely young woman who had a huge capacity to love. If you want to "get away" and enjoy a delightful romantic story, then pick up "The Prairie Prince" and sit back and get carried away to Custer Creek and a small cabin on the prairie. Enjoy! ( )

‘The Prairie Prince’ is just one of Marcia Lyn McClure’s many literary masterpieces.

This is was extremely talented author. Through her writings, she causes intense emotional, passionate feelings to arise within her reading audience without explicit details. It is very “cleanly” accomplished.

This is a romantic, historic fiction drama with a little action. It is a story of two specific families. A dysfunctional family from an arranged, loveless marriage, in a small town is one, the other a brother with three sisters to care for after the death of their mother, then their father. Difficult as that is, three of the sisters are the same age.

This is a story of the experiences of these families and in small town living. One family has an hardworking, unloving, violent head of the household. The other family contains a strong, self-assured, hardworking, loving household head. Can these two families sharing a property line merge as friends? Will they be able to unite with the people in the town area?

Points of interest of novel: romance, love, violence, criminals, friendship, unity, historical small town living. ( )

Katie Matthews had a difficult life. Her father is harsh to her and her mother to the point of abuse when he's been drinking. She survives by running to a particular place on her father's property where she can daydream and feel at peace. She's devastated when her father sells it off. Soon though she meets the new owner, Stover Steele. They are drawn to each other right away but Stover thinks she's a little young and he still has his three little sisters to raise and Katie believes that someone like Stover would never be interested in her. Stover finds himself, however, coming to Katie's rescue quite a few times. He sees her gentle spirit and it angers him at how harsh her father is with her. Will Stover and Katie have the chance to find true love or will fear and danger find them first?

This was a really great romantic read. Katie was such a sweet girl and you truly felt bad for her and her mother having to live with such a harsh and loveless man. One thing I thoroughly enjoyed about this story was Stover's three little sisters. They were so active and always getting into innocent trouble. It just made me smile wide! I also loved the secondary story between Stover's sister Piller and Katie's brother Jared. It's almost like having two stories in one. Hillary was a girl in the story who was trying to win the attention of Stover away from Katie by not be honest. I really appreciated that Stover saw right through her antics. Many times a 'smart' hero will fall for the lies and that makes me frustrated. There was a big gasp at the end right before a big sigh! If you're looking for a total 'get away from your troubles' type read then try The Prairie Prince. It comes complete with lots of great kissing scenes and a shirtless hero nicely tucked inside a very clean romance. Who could ask for more? ( )
