The Trove of the Passion Room by Marcia Lynn McClure

Sharlamagne Dickens cherished her family, was intrigued by the past, adored antiques, and enjoyed working at the antique store owned by her parents. Her life, like most, had been touched by tragedy and loss, yet she was happy. Though her life was not void of romance, it was void of a certain emotional passion. Still, she was young and assumed that one day some man might manage to sweep her off her feet. Sharlamagne did not expect to be entirely bowled over, however. And the day she first set eyes on Maxim Tanner, she was!
Elisaveta Tanner’s grandson, Maxim, was the dreamiest, most attractive archetypal male Sharlamagne and her sister, Gwen, had ever seen! Tall, dark, and illegally handsome, Maxim Tanner possessed not only fabulous looks, money, and the sweetest grandmother in the world but also a fair amount of local fame. He was gorgeous, clever, and pathetically out of reach for any average girl.
And so Sharlamagne went about her life happy and satisfied—for she had no idea what sort of emotional intensity the right man could inflame in her. She had no conception of how an age-old mystery and one man could converge to unleash a passion so powerful that it would be either the greatest gift she had ever known—or her final undoing.

Tifferz Take-
I have been waiting for this book forever and it was given to me as a gift from my mom. I was so excited to read this book. So, this story was just okay for me. This story did not reflect the great story telling that Marcia is known for.
I honestly think some of names did me in. I also felt that Marcia needed to develop Maxim character more and the drama in the story was anti-climactic. The story just did not come together for me. Lots of little things did not add up. I loved all the kissing! This story is clean like all of her books are. It does contain a few swear words. Marcia is an awesome writer and I hope her next book will reflect the great storytelling she is known for.
