LOVING LADY MARCIA
Kramer’s unique take on the TV series The Brady Bunch is a delight: funny, sweet, sexy, smart and more charming than the show. With Kramer’s enchanting sense of humor, the blonde, lovely Brady girls and their irascible brothers, loving parents and housekeeper Alice are off on a romp that rivals Shakespeare for a comedy of errors. Readers will be up all night before drifting off to dream of a love story like this.
Lady Marcia is what the ton considers a great beauty, but instead of ballrooms she prefers classrooms — and she has vowed never to fall in love again. When she’s called home, she finds Duncan Lattimore, a friend from her past, waiting. Marcia is surprised by her overwhelming attraction to him. There’s only one problem: his brother cruelly abandoned her. Duncan has no idea that’s why she’s so standoffish. He is determined to woo and win Marcia, not knowing that a rival is threatening her beloved school, or that his brother’s return imperils their slowly growing trust and passion. Loving Lady Marcia isn’t simple or easy but, to Duncan, it’s worth everything. (ST. MARTIN’S, Sep., 368 pp., $7.99)
