But that won’t be enough now that the Royal Family is about to be ousted from power once and for all. When Prince Arthur has to rely on the one woman in the kingdom who hates him most, he must learn that earning the love of a nation means first risking his heart. Twenty-eight-year-old Tessa Sharpe, a.k.a. The Royal Watchdog, hates everything about Prince Arthur. As far as she’s concerned, he’s an arrogant, lazy leech on the kingdom of Avonia. When he shocks the nation by giving her the keys to the castle, Tessa has no choice but to accept and move in for two months. It’s lust at first sight, but there’s no way she can give in to her feelings—not if she wants to have a career or a shred of pride left when her time at the palace ends… Can two natural enemies find their forever in each other’s arms, or will they ruin each other to save themselves?

Synopsis

TV journalist Elizabeth “E.M.” Danniher will tell you she committed two sins — she didn’t stay young, and she made an enemy of a powerful news executive — her ex. She used to break national news. Now her top story as the “Helping Out!” reporter at dinky KWMT-TV in Sherman, Wyoming is getting a refund for a defective toaster.

Tough, funny and determined, Elizabeth wrestles with isolation, keeping a professional edge, and an evolving self-image. Is Wyoming — the land of cattle, cowboys, tumbleweeds, and fewer than six people per square mile — her new home or a road to permanent obscurity?

Soon she’s in a battle of wills with ex-football player turned journalist Mike Paycik, who sees her as a handy rung on his career ladder. And there’s the matter of a deputy sheriff—missing or murdered? Elizabeth finds herself investigating at the insistence of a girl who’s set on proving her father’s innocence. Not that enigmatic rancher Thomas David Burrell makes investigating easy.

But Elizabeth won’t fade to black without a fight, no matter how final some might want to make her SIGN OFF.

Synopsis

"A don't-miss treat!" -- Rendezvous

ALMOST A BRIDE

Dave Currick was everything Matty Brennan wanted for as along as she could remember. Right up until he broke her heart six years ago. Now that she's returned to Wyoming for good, what she wants more than anything is to save her family's ranch. Even if that means swallowing her pride and asking Dave to marry her.

Matty's up to something - Dave knows that much. Just as he knows that Matty needs help, so of course he'll provide it, just as he has all her life. Doing what's best for Matty is second nature, and part of the cowboy code. Even when it comes to marrying her in name only. Although he can't resist one hot-blooded kiss after the I-dos.

Maybe - just maybe - his Matty will become more to him than Almost a Bride.


Wildflowers have to be strong and resilient to bloom amid the rugged western beauty of Wyoming - and so do the women.

They stared at each other, and Maggie felt the tightness in her middle expand as it shifted, burning its way up… Painful sobs rose in her throat as Colin, his face expressionless now, reached for his mobile and tapped 999.

When three-year-old Olivia disappears from the beach, a happy family holiday comes to an abrupt end. Maggie is plunged into the darkest nightmare imaginable – what happened to her little girl?

Further along the coast, another mother is having problems too. Jennifer's daughter Hailey is starting school, and it should be such a happy time, but the child has become moody and silent. Family life has never seemed so awkward, and Jennifer struggles to maintain control.

The tide ebbs and flows, and summer dies, but there is no comfort for Maggie, alone now at the cottage, or for Jennifer, still swamped by doubts.

Book 1 - Prelude to a Wedding

Book 4 - The Runaway Bride
Book 5 - The Christmas Princess
Book 6 - The Surprise Princess

In the romantic comedy Prelude to a Wedding, charming Paul Monroe has the Peter Pan thing down pat. As an antique toy appraiser, even his work involves play. Which is fine, unless your job is to keep his Chicago business running smoothly and all that charm - and sexiness - is aimed at you.

Organization and reliability are Bette Wharton's hallmarks. She handles the toughest clients with aplomb, until Paul provides a challenge that goes way beyond the office. She has a plan and a timetable and office romance -- especially with this man who even makes the workplace fun -- is definitely not part of it. How can she let herself fall for Mr. Live-for-the-Moment if all he offers is Love-for-the-Moment?

... Paul is the first of the grooms to watch his bride walk down the aisle toward him, but he won't be the last! Find their stories in WEDDING PARTY and GRADY'S WEDDING ... and the newest release, THE FORGOTTEN PRINCE, a new sequel to the Wedding Series.

Synopsis

The award-winning creator and screenwriter of ground-breaking BBC television show, Spirit Warriors starring Jessica Henwick (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Games of Thrones) brings you an action packed thrill-ride in her debut novel which will engage and excite fans of Maximum Ride, Dean Koontz's Watchers and The Last of Us.

It's so easy to take things for granted. Take, for example, trees.

Oaks provide shade and plenty of foliage to protect against sudden showers and prying eyes, but there was also the added bonus of load-bearing lower branches that someone nimble could scramble onto should trouble come calling... and you should know, trouble had me on speed-dial.

Living on the streets wasn't a walk in the park, but it was still preferable to what I had to deal with at home, and after some eight months of being on my own, I'd gotten my routine down to a fine art - a morning dumpster dive followed by a dip in the Central Park pond - when one day I stumbled upon this mangy dog being attacked. It wasn't a big deal to help him, but then he ended up saving my life which is when I realized there was something special about him: Muttface wasn't a normal dog - he was crazy intelligent. I'm talking Mensa levels. And he wasn’t an accident either, having recently escaped from a mysterious lab.

We were just getting to know each other when things took a bloody turn. The vet, Sully, a troubled guy who had recently lost his wife to cancer, did what he could and I guess that would've been the end of our story if we hadn't been attacked by a gang of mercenaries who destroyed Sully's clinic and seemed intent on doing the same to us.

So now here we were, the three of us. On the run across the country against a seemingly all-powerful enemy. Who were they and what did they want with us?

Through the danger, terror, and pain, one thing was becoming clear to me: I had finally found the family I had always wanted and I would do anything to keep them safe - even if it meant risking my own life.


WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"The story masterfully combined various threads and powered along through to an explosive finale. This is sure to be a classic once more people hear of it. Amazed this is the author's first book." - Amazon Customer.

"I was loving it so much... Before I was even half way through this book I went back to this site to see if it listed a sequel... can hardly wait!" - Sheila LS, Amazon Reviewer

"It is a fast-paced and action-packed book with three very different but very sympathetic main characters who will in turn make you laugh, cry and really, really want a dog!" - AlbaR, Amazon Reviewer

"Bandit, Chase and Sully keep this amazing story moving at a fast and furious pace. Do yourself a favor and grab a copy of this hard to put down book." - JMP, Amazon Reviewer.

"Jo Ho’s screenwriting background is clearly evident in the pacing, which takes all of the time necessary to tell the story and describe the setting and characters but wastes no words doing so... I highly recommend it to anybody who’s a fan of YA or even just a fan of reading in general." - Amazon Customer.

Synopsis

Wyoming Wildflowers Trilogy
Book 1 -- Almost a Bride (Indian Paintbrush)
Book 2 -- Match Made in Wyoming (Fireweed)
Book 3 -- My Heart Remembers (Bur Marigold)

ALMOST A BRIDE
Dave Currick was everything Matty Brennan wanted for as along as she could remember. Right up until he broke her heart six years ago. Now that she’s returned to Wyoming for good, what she wants more than anything is to save her family’s ranch. Even if that means swallowing her pride and asking Dave to marry her.

Matty’s up to something – Dave knows that much. Just as he knows that Matty needs help, so of course he’ll provide it. Doing what’s best for Matty is second nature. Even when it comes to marrying her in name only. Although he can’t resist one hot-blooded kiss after the I-dos -- a kiss as fiery as the flame-red Indian Paintbrush that's always reminded him of Matty.

Maybe – just maybe – his Matty will become more to him than Almost a Bride.

MATCH MADE IN WYOMING
When fire ravages Wyoming land, fireweed is among the first plants to return, brightening the blighted area with the joy of its blooms. Can Taylor Anne Larsen pull off a similar miracle for the pain-ravaged heart and disbelieving soul of ranch foreman Cal Ruskoff? Armed with the same grace and grit as the wildflower fireweed, Taylor also has allies – a matchmaking friend, the Wyoming winter, high-octane mutual attraction, and a rescued puppy who slips past Cal's defenses.

Cal might give in to passion temporarily, but from behind the wall he's built around his past and his secrets, he's certain Taylor is all that he can't let himself have. And he'll use all his weapons to keep her out.


MY HEART REMEMBERS
Lisa Currick was once as bright and open as the sunny Bur Marigold wildflower of her native Wyoming. That’s how New York City Detective Shane Garrison has remembered her since she figured in his first investigation eight years ago. But when he arrives in her hometown determined to resolve the final element of that case, he discovers the girl he's remembered has become a very different woman.

England, 1942. After three years of WWII, Britain is showing the scars. But in this darkest of days, three lives intertwine, changing their destinies and those of many more.

Dr Archibald McIndoe, a New Zealand plastic surgeon with unorthodox methods, is on a mission to treat and rehabilitate badly burned airmen – their bodies and souls. With the camaraderie and support of the Guinea Pig Club, his boys battle to overcome disfigurement, pain, and prejudice to learn to live again.

John ‘Mac’ Mackenzie of the US Air Force is aware of the odds. He has one chance in five of surviving the war. Flying bombing missions through hell and back, he’s fighting more than the Luftwaffe. Fear and doubt stalk him on the ground and in the air, and he’s torn between his duty and his conscience.

Shy, decent and sensible Stella Charlton’s future seems certain until war breaks out. As a new recruit to the WAAF, she meets an American pilot on New Year’s Eve. After just one dance, she falls head over heels for the handsome airman. But when he survives a crash, she realises her own battle has only just begun.

Rebecca Dahlgren comes to Far Hills Ranch hoping for answers to her unknown heritage. But from the first moment, she finds foreman Luke Chandler hard to miss. The sexy cowboy with the sleepy eyes that aren't interested in sleeping means just the sort of trouble her patrician grandmother has always warned about.

Luke has his own reasons for wanting to steer clear of anything like commitment. But the secrets behind Rebecca’s dark eyes keep luring him on … even if it means baring his own heart.

"Melt your heart romance" -- Old Book Barn Gazette

Wyoming Wildflowers -- Book 2 -- Fireweed

When fire ravages Wyoming land, fireweed is among the first plants to return, brightening the blighted area with the joy of its blooms. Small-town lawyer Taylor Anne Larsen faces the challenge of doing the same for the pain-ravaged heart and disbelieving soul of ranch foreman Cal Ruskoff. Armed with the same grace and grit as the wildflower fireweed, Taylor also has allies – a matchmaking friend, a harsh western blizzard, high-octane mutual attraction, and a rescued puppy who slips past the defenses of this tough cowboy.

While they're snowbound together, Cal might give in to passion temporarily, but from behind the wall he's built around his past and his secrets, he's certain Taylor is all that he can't let himself have. And he'll use all his weapons to keep her out.

"These characters -- their dialogue, their fears, their complex personalities -- are very real. As a reader, I couldn't help fall under Cal's spell -- a good, troubled, mixed-up man who forces Taylor to confront some of her own demons, even as he refuses to face his own . . . There's a lot of subtle -- and not so subtle -- humor here, the love scenes are at once tender and sizzling, and the emotions and fears of both characters wrap themselves around the reader's heart and don't let go." – Karen Templeton

Wildflowers have to be strong and resilient to bloom amid the rugged western beauty of Wyoming - and so do the women.


Author's note: The collie puppy in Match Made in Wyoming is the alter ego of my much-loved rescue collie Riley ... right down to the inconvenient penchant for opening doors at the wrong moment. Although for Taylor and Cal, it turns out to be the right moment. :-)

Synopsis

"There’s a body in my bed. A dead body."

The call from a friend staying at Sherman’s newest – okay, only – B&B starts Elizabeth Margaret “E.M.” Danniher on a twisting, turning journey where appearances not only deceive, they turn deadly.
When her TV reporter friend Wardell Yardley comes to visit, they take a weekend trip to Yellowstone Park and encounter a surprising set of people. Including a team-building group from social media mega-force VisageTome, a mysterious older couple, and someone from Elizabeth’s childhood.
Elizabeth senses undercurrents in this strange assortment that just about pull her and her friends underwater for good when everyone shows up in her tiny Sherman, Wyoming, town.
Not only is there a murder to solve – and fast – there’s also a new sheriff in town, whose No. 1 rule might be No Sleuthing By Journalists.
Look Live is a TV news term. A reporter appears to be live at a scene, perhaps for an introduction or the toss back to the anchor desk, but in fact the entire report is taped. A misleading perception, carefully set up. Ah, the dangers of deceiving appearances …
Elizabeth, her KWMT-TV colleague Mike Paycik, rancher Tom Burrell, and their supporting staff of idiosyncratic sleuths untangle what happens when it’s not enough to merely … LOOK LIVE.

Synopsis

“Are you sure, baby?”

The father of the bride-to-be noted the concern and confusion on his daughter’s face. Just before her walk down the aisle, Judi Monroe overheard a conversation that indicated marrying Sterling Carroll might be a big mistake. Escaping her socialite wedding in Lake Forest, Illinois, she headed west, covering her tracks as she went. In an isolated corner of Wyoming, she swerved her car to avoid hitting a horse and rider on the road, crashing into a tree. She’s rescued by that lone rider – or Ranger, as she fleetingly recalls -- a rugged rancher named Thomas Vance.

Judi just needed some time, to puzzle out the predicament she’d left behind in Illinois. But here she was in the arms of a doubting Thomas, a man with a strong jaw, deep-green eyes and a commanding presence. When Judi dodges his personal questions, not to mention his penetrating gaze, Thomas’ teenage half-sister Becky suggests amnesia as an explanation. Judi seizes on this foot in the Diamond V door, and stays on as a caretaker for Thomas’ beloved grandmother, who is recovering from hip surgery. Judi finds a family on the Diamond V, even as her masquerade as the home health aide Helga slowly unravels. But as she falls hard for her horse whisperer, she fears her secret will only cause him to bolt from her life. As for Thomas, he knows this impostor is lying, and it wouldn’t be the first time an outsider betrayed his family. Yet he can’t help but trust this sexy, independent, smart woman who has lassoed his heart.

Synopsis

He sees what she's long hidden ... especially from herself.

Meet Josh Kincannon, high school principal, single father of three, and thus, as he reminds himself ruefully, essentially celibate back into misty memory and forward into the foreseeable future.

After three months of trying to work with Vanessa Irish via phone and e-mails on a project to help tiny Drago, Illinois, Josh believes he has an accurate picture of Zeke-Tech's CFO:

Conscientious? Oh, yeah.
Intelligent? Absolutely.
Agreeable? Not so much.

Then he catches sight of her wild, vibrant robe and begins to wonder what other elements might form a portrait of Vanessa Irish. Every time she goes into her I'm-so-boring-I-disappear-against-white-walls act, he remembers that vibrant, wild fabric hanging on the corner of a door and he gets curious.

And the more curious he becomes, the more he discovers about her that has him feeling things a whole lot hotter than curiosity. Things that shake up life as single parent to his three kids, scrape against his career as high school principal and -- oh, yes -- definitely threaten his stretch of celibacy.

Numbers, that's where Vanessa is comfortable. Not all this interaction with people that she's been pitched into. Especially interacting with Josh Kincannon. Why does he insist on drawing her into his small town, his life, his children? And the biggest question -- what kind of man is this, who not only looks at her, but SEES her, when that's the last thing she wants?

... or is it?

Synopsis

"An extraordinary narrative"
"Beautifully told - stays with you long after the last page is sadly turned."
"Carefully pieced together from personal and official documents, oral testimony and material objects"

A true story of love and reconciliation in the aftermath of the Second World War

Minny leaves Germany on a bitterly cold morning in December 1946 and travels to England to marry Jim, a British Intelligence Corps soldier in the Allied armies that defeated the Nazi regime in 1945 and occupied the devastated nation. She has survived British and American bombs and witnessed the destruction of Aachen, her ancient and beautiful city. How will a German woman cope in austere post-war Britain, where she is still regarded as the enemy? Illustrated with almost 100 images and original documents, The Bride's Trunk describes the adventures of an unremarkable piece of luggage and three generations of its owners, whose journeys across Europe are determined by the turbulent events of twentieth century history.

Some comments on 'The Bride's Trunk'

“An extraordinary narrative, pieced together from original documents, about a couple who were determined not to let war defeat them. 70 years ago the British government passed a law allowing British men to marry German women, but little thought was given to the life that those German women would find, in the aftermath of the second world war. This heart-warming tale brings alive childhood and adolescence in pre-war Germany, followed by a new life in the old enemy country."
Jackie Ashley, President of Lucy Cavendish College, University of Cambridge, and journalist

“Scant attention has been paid to the 10,000 or so German women who married British soldiers at the end of the Second World War. In this often moving account, Ingrid Dixon traces the story of her own parents, one a former secretary for the German police, the other a British soldier from the Intelligence Corps, both of whom were caught up in the chaotic last months of the Third Reich and its immediate aftermath. Their story is carefully pieced together from personal and official documents, oral testimony and material objects, including the old trunk which survived the vicissitudes of war to carry the bride’s worldly possessions to her new home in Liverpool.”
Professor Peter Wilson, Chichele Professor of the History of War, University of Oxford 

“A gripping and moving story, with excellent illustrations, which really evokes time and place and is a sensitive treatment of the conflicting feelings associated with war.”
Dr Philip Towle, Department of Politics and International Studies, University of Cambridge

“A great read. The town of Drago has insinuated itself into my heart.” -- Vine Voice

Seasons in a Small Town – Summer

Pretty, popular Jennifer was prom queen in small-town Drago, Illinois, the girl who had it made.

That is, until her no-good ex-husband left her with a child to raise and a household deep in debt. And the family seemed somehow to blame the breakup on her. But Jennifer steeled herself to the challenge and vowed to show them all, especially her vulnerable young daughter. Who knew that a dusty old car dealership might turn out to be her saving grace.

That and Trent Stenner, her ex’s brother and a former NFL football star turned successful executive. He, too, sees value in the car lot that once had been a thriving family business. Jennifer’s goal is to sell the dealership, but Trent has another strategy. He can see the whipsmart Jennifer at the helm of the town’s vital enterprise, but he knows she’ll resist any move seen as charity. And he admires that same independent streak he sees in her athletic daughter.

Can Trent and Jennifer save the family business without losing their wallets – and hearts?

In rural Drago, Illinois, Zeke came by his “the Geek” nickname honest, more comfortable in the world of algebra and algorithms than high school’s social hallways. Though that didn’t keep him from longing for the unattainable prom queen, Jennifer.

The one person who did understand his out-of-the-box brain was Darcie, his best friend. After their high school graduation, Zeke and Darcie for one night jolted from friends to lovers. And then he left town, and she knew he couldn’t look back. What he didn’t know was the depth of Darcie’s feelings for him.

Now it’s 17 years later, and Zeke’s a self-made billionaire founder of a tech security firm, Darcie’s a local cop and Jennifer’s a divorced mom of a tween girl. And their little town is flagging.

At Darcie’s urging, Zeke returns to Drago to boost its economy. Will his new wealth attract the still-beautiful Jennifer? Or will Darcie, the one girl who always made him feel at ease, show him that true love knows no boundaries?

What Are Friends For?, Book 1 of USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn's Seasons in a Small Town series, is a moving, passionate contemporary romance that will captivate fans of Bella Andre, Roxanne St. Clair and Jill Shalvis.

“You laugh, you angst, you maybe shed a couple tears or two … and at the end of it you move immediately onto the next book because - unlike teenage Zeke - you don't want to get away, all you want to do is go back.” – 5-Star Review


Praise for the Seasons in a Small Town series:

“The town of Drago has insinuated itself into my heart and I can only hope there is another installment with this small town as its setting.”

“Strong characters with enough faults to make them human and real” yet “The other characters in Drago all add to the story rather than taking attention from the main action.”

“McLinn delivers a fun, engaging, and emotionally complicated romance.”

“Poignant, heart warming” . . . “Funny and heart-wrenching at the same time” . . . “Passionate and sensual without being distasteful or vulgar.”

Following is an official OnlineBookClub.org review of "The Power of Thanksgiving" by Joyce Addo-Atuah, PhD.]

________________________________________
4 out of 4 stars
________________________________________


The Power of Thanksgiving: A Blueprint for Contentment, Fulfillment, and Well-Being through Gratitude by Joyce Addo-Atuah is a book that truly covers many of the benefits and results from having a lifestyle of thanksgiving. The book describes the spiritual, psychological, physical, and relational benefits of practicing a life of gratitude and being thankful.

The book begins with an explanation of the history of the Thanksgiving holiday and the purpose of giving thanks to God and to the Natives who helped the Pilgrims survive in the new land. The author quickly states that this book would be about living a lifestyle of thanksgiving and not just a once-a-year occasion. The chapters are all divided into different aspects of the meaning and practice of thanksgiving as a lifestyle: the what, why, when, and how of this wonderful attitude of gratitude affecting everything and everyone. Each chapter is sprinkled with quotes, Bible verses, hymns, and the author’s personal experiences. The author is actively living a lifestyle of thanksgiving as her book testifies.

I especially liked that the author not only points out that we should thank God for his goodness and love but also thank the people who have blessed us in our lives. God is able to be good to us through anything and anyone to bless us in our lives. When we develop this attitude of gratitude, we will see and experience even more to be thankful for, including simple everyday things, such as the air we breathe and the water we drink. I really like all the benefits the author mentioned from being thankful.

Being thankful leaves no room for negativity nor having a complaining attitude. A truly thankful person will be pleasant to be around, will have a positive outlook on life, and will be able to be happy for others experiencing blessings and happiness. The author mentions that a thankful person will be a forgiving person and a giving person. She encourages people to get right with family, friends, and neighbors and to not only donate time, talent, and treasure but to express thankfulness to people who have blessed us and to treat all people with dignity and respect.

This well-written book covered so many different aspects of the meaning and practice of thanksgiving in an organized way with plenty of personal examples, quotes, use of Scriptures from the Bible, and hymns that I rate The Power of Thanksgiving 4 out of 4 stars. I cannot think of anything that I didn’t like about the book, except for the several small errors found, such as missing hyphens, quotation marks, and capital letters that were needed. However, I had an overall feeling that the book was well edited as I read it, and these errors did not take away the ease and enjoyment of reading the material. Because of the heavy use of Bible passages and hymns, this book would appeal most to Christians and people who do not mind the Christian viewpoint of living a lifestyle of thanksgiving. However, I think many people would enjoy and benefit from reading this book as a practical guide to practice gratitude and to know and experience the benefits of being thankful.

Synopsis

After shooting and killing his nephew, a gunman runs wild in a London park. What drives Edward to commit such heinous acts? Who will survive yet another of his moments of madness? The action takes place in Jersey, Cornwall, Manchester, London and other places not of this world. Set in 2015, Random Bullets is a crime thriller with a paranormal twist.

If I tell you that I was disinherited by my crazy father, you might understand why I feel a degree of sympathy for Edward. I was interviewed in February 2016 by two BBC Radio 4 producers as part of their Analysis programme on the subject of Inheritance. They’d heard that my book, Random Bullets, deals with the subject of disinheritance and its aftermath.

"Action-packed, thought-provoking, a real ride. I couldn't put it down," "crime with a twist," "An insightful look behind the many faces we wear, and how burning resentments can take you into madness and murder," "Kinetic... really zips along at a pace, I was really drawn in" are just a few of the reader reviews that Random Bullets has received.

Random Bullets is available on Amazon in paperback, Kindle, and audiobook editions.

Colonel John Griffin Jr. is the best kind of military man. He's a good and honorable soldier who's determined to protect Ellyn Sinclair at all costs - especially from himself.

But now Ellyn is a widow, back in Far Hills, Wyoming, living on his family's ranch there with her two young children, and having a tough time. And no matter what it costs him, Grif will do his duty - help Ellyn and her children, while ignoring that he has never stopped wanting her.

Now the Army's sending him back to the western life he knew as a boy, the world of cowboys and cattle on Far Hills Ranch ... and back to the love he knew as a boy. But how can he even be dreaming of second chances, when they should have no chance at all.

View full details

Synopsis

The Gift Saga Trilogy is now in a complete set. Three books: Evanthia's Gift; Waiting For Aegina; Chasing Petalouthes.

Evanthia’s Gift
In the year 1956, Anastacia finds herself pregnant and betrayed, fleeing from a bad marriage. With the love and support of her dear friends, Ana is able to face the challenges of single motherhood. Left with emotional wounds, she resists her growing affection for Alexandros, an old acquaintance. But his persistence and unconditional love for Ana and her child, Sophia, is eventually rewarded and his love is returned. In a misguided, but well-intentioned effort to protect the ones they love, both Ana and Alex keep secrets - ones that could threaten the delicate balance of their family.
The story continues in the 1970’s as Sophia attempts to negotiate between two cultures. Now Greek-American teenagers, Sophia and Dean, the boy with who she’s shared a special connection since childhood, become lovers. Sophia is shattered when Dean rebels against the pressure his father places on him to uphold his Greek heritage and hides his feelings for her. When he pulls away from his family, culture and ultimately his love for her, Sophia is left with no choice but to find a life different from the one she’d hoped for.

Waiting For Aegina
Book Two in The Gift Saga: The continuation of Evanthia’s Gift…
In 1961, five little girls moved into a suburban neighborhood and became inseparable, lifelong friends. They called themselves the ‘Honey Hill Girls,’ named after the street on which they lived. As teenagers they shared one another’s ambitions and dreams, secrets and heartaches. Now, more than thirty years later, they remain devoted and loyal, supporting each other through triumphs and sorrows.

Evanthia's Gift follows the life of Sophia Giannakos. In Waiting for Aegina the saga continues from the perspectives of Sophia and her friends as the story drifts back and forth in time, filling in the gaps as the women grow to adulthood.

Naive teenage ideals are later challenged by harsh realities, as each of their lives takes unexpected turns. Now nearing their fiftieth year, Sophia, Demi, Amy, Mindy and Donna stand together through life-altering obstacles while they try to regain the lighthearted optimism of their youth.

Chasing Petalouthes
The Gift Saga concludes with the next generation coming into the forefront of the story during their tumultuous years between adolescence and adulthood.

Evvie has lived through more tragedy than a young girl should ever endure, having lost both her father and a most beloved grandmother at a young age. Her rebellious ways are her only defense to mask the ever-present pain in her heart. Closing herself off emotionally, Evvie vows to never let anyone into her heart. But will her determination to keep everyone out see her lose the only person who could heal her broken soul?

Over-achieving, focused, talented, determined to succeed. Those are the traits Stella envies in her siblings and cousins. Her insecurities and lack of confidence stunts her ability to realize her own worth. When an older, handsome young man claims her as his own, Stella believes she has finally found who she has been looking for—someone to love her enough to mold her into the best version of herself. But has she fallen in love too quickly for a man she barely knows anything about?

Chasing Petalouthes (Chasing Butterflies) is the coming of age story of two flawed, young women who push their way out from the confines of the cocoons they’d built around themselves and discover how to soar.

The Gift Saga is an homage to family, tradition, heritage, perseverance, and everlasting love in all its many forms. Love—unbinding, unbreakable, undeniable—love is eternal.

Book cover image for Mules; Masters & Mud: The Continuing Story of The Quarry Bank Runaways (Tales of Quarry Bank Mill Book 2)
View full details

Synopsis

WARNING! This book may contain NUTS! (Non-Uniform Text Speech)

In other words speech in what some have called "Olde English Vernacular". It is spoken by characters in the book from the North, the Midlands and the South of England. There is a glossary at the end of the book to help if you can rise to the challenge. It adds shades of colour to this 19th century story that you may not be expecting.

When Mrs Alexander wrote about “the rich man in his castle, the poor man at his gate” and declared that “God made them, high or lowly, and order’d their estate” in the ever popular hymn All Things Bright and Beautiful, she was probably reflecting one of the mores of the times. It would fit in well with prejudices and beliefs of the middle and upper classes that paternalism had indeed been intended by God, thus laws protecting the workers in their fields, mills and factories were not necessary. In the words of Browning so long as “God’s in his heaven, all’s right with the world!”

The continuing story of the Quarry Bank Runaways is about what happened to two cotton apprentices over three decades during the Industrial Revolution; first as qualified young men with hopes and later when they are full grown. By the start of the Victorian period the fates and their ambitions would have collided. Serious events and incidents, both personal and national, were about to impinge upon the lives of Thomas Priestley and Joseph Sefton, who had earlier run away from their apprentice master, Samuel Greg. What would cause a qualified mule spinner to give up his comparatively safe job and risk failure, ridicule or destitution? Ambitious and determined working class individuals like Tommy and Joe had to carefully step through a pathway involving love, loyalty and legal persecution and prejudice, from within the social hierarchy of the times.

The inspiration to write The Quarry Bank Runaways and Mules; Masters & Mud came about after reading The Real Oliver Twist by John Waller, a biography of Robert Blincoe, and acting as a tour guide around the Quarry Bank Mill Museum in England. There to discover the existence of the real apprentices and the lives of many child cotton apprentices during the Industrial Revolution.

Synopsis

She's a prosecutor chasing demons. He's wrestling them. Will they find proof of innocence? Or will the demons win?

Every prosecutor has one – the case that won’t let go, long after the verdict. Maggie Frye’s has just jumped from nightmare to worst-case reality.

Four and a half years ago, she served as special prosecutor in a remote mountain county in Commonwealth of Virginia v. J.D. Carson. Shaking off echoes of the family tragedy that drove her to be a prosecutor, she did her damnedest, despite cards stacked against her. The verdict? Not guilty. A moment that rattled her in ways she’s done her best to bury.

Except now another young woman has been killed in chillingly similar circumstances.

Either Maggie prosecuted the right man and got the wrong verdict or she prosecuted the wrong man and got the right verdict. Either way, a murderer is free to strike again. And there is J.D. Carson -- not only still in town, but far too close to the investigation for Maggie’s comfort.

But Maggie’s going to be part of this part of this investigation, too. Because this time she’ll get it right … no matter what it costs her.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Proof of Innocence, by USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn, will entertain fans of stories that swirl suspense and romance with an ongoing murder investigation in which the man the prosecutor is drawn to might be the one she's trying to catch.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

NOTE FROM PATRICIA McLINN TO CAUGHT DEAD IN WYOMING READERS: Proof of Innocence and its upcoming sequel, Price of Innocence, do not have nearly as much humor as the Caught Dead mysteries, though there is some. (I just can't help myself.) They're a bit grittier and darker ... though not in the deep end of grit and dark. I strongly recommend you read the preview to be sure this is something you would enjoy.

View full details

Synopsis

Lust shouts. Love whispers. Only the heart knows the difference.

When 40-year-old former US navy officer Adam Wild takes up the position of head teacher at St Mary’s Academy for Girls in England, he knows he’ll have his work cut out for him. But what he doesn’t realise is that his greatest challenge will be in managing the all-female staff.

Jenna feels the position should have been hers and undermines his attempts to reform the troubled school. Barbara (Babs) sees him as a romantic challenge, but Lisa, his confidante, believes she knows where his heart truly lies.

Adam’s strict new rules and sometimes cavalier approach set him on a collision course with a contingent of sullen and rebellious students who set out to manipulate and embarrass him in ways that only teenage girls can.

Still recovering from the tragic loss of his wife and two young children in a car crash, Adam is not in the market for new romance. But that does not prevent him from becoming the target of several predatory, repressed, or love-hungry libidos. His virile presence acts as a catalyst that upsets the entrenched order and stability of the school world, and proceeds to pull more than one dark, scandalous secret into the light … And then Nicole, his late wife’s tearaway kid sister returns from Africa - and she is hiding secrets of her own.

Intrigue, scandal and suspense simmer beneath the surface of this light-hearted and humour-peppered romance, where one man’s influence on a school full of wayward girls and their teachers changes their lives in ways none of them could imagine – and eventually his own.

Winner of the best Chick Lit/Women’s Lit category in the 2015 eFestival of Words

If you enjoy feel-good stories then don't miss this happy-ever-after read.

Author Biography

From being a sports writer to editing at the Washington Post to becoming a USA Today bestselling author, Patricia McLinn follows her heart. She writes what she loves to read, and is delighted and humbled when readers love it, too.


One of the things she loves is writing about Wyoming, a passion that started with a free airline ticket and a desire to go someplace she’d never seen before. Cowboys, quirky small towns, humorous characters, and spectacular landscapes – what’s not to like? Now she returns every chance she gets – including visiting through her popular contemporary western romance bundles (Wyoming Wildflowers, A Place Called Home, and Bardville, Wyoming), her western historical romances, and her mystery series Caught Dead in Wyoming.


Readers praise her books for memorable and believable characters, as well as touches of humor added to romance, women’s fiction, and mystery.


Patricia’s newest releases are the romantic comedy THE SURPRISE PRINCESS, the sixth book in The Wedding Series (set in Chicago and Washington, D.C – because she’s not always writing westerns), and JACK’S HEART, the fifth story in the Wyoming Wildflowers contemporary western romance collection.

Synopsis

An epic family saga set in South Africa.

A spurned lover marries for money and ignites a family feud of betrayal and revenge that spans three generations.

It is New Year’s Eve 1924 and the fiery and volatile Charles McGill is devastated when the woman he loves announces her engagement to the mild-mannered Lucas Connelly, his friend and co-worker. Charles drowns his sorrow in drink and seduces Hilde Richter, the spinster daughter of a wealthy businessman.

When Hilde finds she is pregnant her desperate father offers to set up the penniless Charles with his own bakery if he will marry her. Charles readily agrees and, unknown to Hilde, the two men draw up a contract. It is the beginning of a bitter rivalry between Charles and Lucas, and their vengeful former employer, Miles Davenport. A rivalry that fractures families, tests love and loyalty, and comes at a cost that Charles could never have imagined.

The Breadwinners covers six tumultuous decades and leads us through the ruthless and cutthroat business dealings of the three families as they survive the great depression, the war years, the isolation of South Africa and the advent of company takeovers.

Synopsis

FALLEN HERO is about a man who seems to spend his life building bridges. Bridges between his unknown origins and his aspirations in life. Once he finds a tenuous link to his biological father Chris Squires cannot help but follow its path. Despite his misgivings he seeks out his roots.

FALLEN HERO is also about a man who is trying to reconcile the realities of war, and life, with his disappointment over his lost inner hopes for the dad he needed to find.

Two boys about to become teenagers: Christopher, born just after the end of World War Two, grows up in the UK; Fritz, orphaned by a bomb dropped on his German home in that same terrible war, befriended by a US marine. When Christopher discovers he was adopted he seeks to find his biological father. Fritz never gets the chance to grow much older and is found dead in the back of General George Patton's Cadillac at the end of the war.

Chris Squires is a confused man, constantly seeking his hero father-figure. The British baby boomer is surprised to find he has a connection with Fritz. Chris discovers the link through Jimmy Lucas, a GI veteran, who he believes could be his father. But his surprise turns to horror when he learns that Jimmy was involved in the death of both Patton and the boy.

Did he kill General George Patton, one of the greatest Generals of the twentieth century? Did he kill an orphaned German boy at the end of World War Two? If the answer to any or all of these questions is Yes! how will Chris cope with the rest of his life?

A confrontation creates further tragedy for Chris, for Jimmy, and for Walt - the man who had saved Jimmy’s life! Chris panics and retreats back to Britain, trying to forget the incident he caused in San Francisco. Although appearing to lead a mundane and respectable life, for years he is tormented by guilt. He still hopes to find his hero, a guide to some kind of inner peace. And then Walt re-enters his life bringing with him a new bridge!

Synopsis

Where Love Lives:The Inheritance (Wyoming Wildflowers, Book 6)

Six years ago, rodeo cowboy Matt Halderman looked at himself and didn’t like what he saw. Especially not after he ran out on that spunky, wide-eyed student he’d just met. He didn’t run far, falling into conversation with a stranger in the pre-dawn stillness of a Wyoming truck stop. That conversation – along with seed money that mysteriously arrived just when he needed it – turned the course of Matt’s life.

Now he’s received a letter announcing that the stranger he’d met in that diner had been billionaire Harold Hopewell. Hopewell had traveled the world, encountering people and letting their stories touch him. In death, he is giving back, leaving an unusual will filled with life-altering bequests to the people he met along the way.

It turns out the recently departed billionaire isn’t done changing Matt’s life. This time with an inheritance that will allow Matt to go home to do something he’s long dreamed of – caring for rodeo horses at the end of their lives.

Zoe Parisi hasn’t forgotten Matt Halderman or the night he walked out on her. Couldn’t even be called a one-night stand, since the man hadn’t stuck around for the whole night. She lost her head that night, but it’s been squarely back on her shoulders ever since. She’s a doctor now and is on track to take over an established practice in Knighton, Wyoming, the much-loved hometown of her grandparents.

She’d been sure when she decided to settle in Knighton that Matt would never return to the ranch where he grew up. But now, here he comes, waltzing back into town … looking just as good as ever and with a bunch of money.

Zoe wants nothing to do with Matt or his good looks … but his money’s a whole different matter. What does he need with this inheritance when he already has so much? She, on the other hand, knows exactly how to use those funds to make desperately needed improvements to medical care for all the people around Knighton.

Wildflowers have to be strong and resilient to bloom amid the rugged western beauty of Wyoming - and so do the women..

Synopsis

"Mediterranean Noir with a comic twist."

Roy Groves has led a colourful career in business, during which he battled with corporate politics, deception, and even vicious criminals. But now Roy has retired and he is looking forward to a quieter life. He and his wife, Donna, have bought an apartment in an exclusive development on Spain’s Costa del Sol.

He soon learns, however, that there are financial problems: the community is, in effect, bankrupt. Roy is persuaded to take on the role of president of the community, confident that, with his extensive business experience, he should easily be able to sort things out. It soon becomes clear, however, that nothing is as simple as it seems.

As he tries to come up with a rescue plan, Roy discovers that a poorly-constructed retaining wall has begun to collapse, threatening the development with a landslide. And this is just the start …

As the problems mount up, one after the other, Roy becomes entangled with an astonishingly diverse cast of characters: the devious building developer; the vengeful former President; the Russian prostitute, and her mafia minders; the deranged Middle-Eastern doctor; the devastatingly glamorous French girl who moves in next door; and many more ...

Horizontal Living is an illuminating insight into the shenanigans which pervade an ex-pat community abroad: sometimes hilarious, sometimes hard to believe, but sometimes darkly disturbing.

She was present at the birth of a nation.
Her descendants sit on the British throne to this day.
But history does not even record her name…

In ninth century Britain, the Picts and the Gaels fight for supremacy over the North. In one of their rare truces, a young Pict woman is reluctantly married to a Gael warrior, son of one of the great Chiefs of Dal Riata.

Leaving behind her family and the Pict lord she had hoped to marry, she travels west to the household of Alpin, where she is viewed with suspicion by many of her new kin. But it is the collapse of the truce and the indifference of her husband that leaves her position in her new land increasingly vulnerable, as war breaks out once again. Forced to forget her Pict heritage, she fears that one day she will be faced with an agonising choice between the victory of her husband or her father.

Spanning over a decade of turbulent Scottish history, her journey takes her from the splendours of the Fortress of Dunadd to the tranquillity of the sacred Isle of Iona, where even greater danger lurks as the terrifying Norsemen plan their own attacks. However, it seems that her hardest battle will be to win the heart of her husband, the brave, cunning and often ruthless Cinaed as he fights his way towards a destiny that could be greater than anyone imagines…

The man known to history as Kenneth Mac Alpin.

Synopsis

In July 1940, a desperately weakened Britain licks her wounds after the humiliating retreat from Dunkirk.  How can the fight be taken to the enemy?  New Prime Minister Winston Churchill orders the creation of the Special Operations Executive, to 'set Europe ablaze' through subversion and sabotage.  But this most secret of agencies must be kept secure.Guardians of Churchill's Secret Army tells the mostly unknown human stories of the men who were brought into SOE, straight from Intelligence Corps training, to do just that.  They were junior in rank, but far from ordinary people.  They were Australian, Anglo-French, Canadian, Scandinavian, East European and British.  They had been schoolteachers, journalists, artists, ship brokers, racehorse trainers and international businessmen. Each spoke several languages.These men stood alongside courageous agents in training: encouraged them, assessed their character, and tried to teach them the caution and suspicion that might just keep them alive, deep in enemy territory.  But they did much more.  Many became agents themselves and displayed great bravery. All played a crucial role in the global effort to undermine the enemy.  We find them not only in the Baker Street Headquarters of SOE, but also in night parachute drops, in paramilitary training in the remotest depths of Scotland and in undercover agent training in isolated English country houses.  We follow them to occupied France, to Malaya and Thailand under threat of Japanese invasion, to Italy and Germany as they play their part in the collapse of the Axis regimes.  As we do so, we find a world of heroism and commitment so different from our own experience that it is scarcely believable. "A terrific and moving read", Dr Philip Towle, University of Cambridge

It describes her tumultuous years as an art student in Coventry, where vegetarian Mug finds herself living next door to an abattoir and railway shunting yard with David, a fellow art student. Dramatic events follow on from the evening they meet at a student party, when Mug attempts to save David from attempting a very public drunken suicide attempt.

View full details

Synopsis

At once a painful coming-of-age novel, an exciting amateur detective tale, and an intriguing narrative engaging with social issues (immigration and wealth disparity), Money Matters has mystery at its core. This emotionally charged debut novel is firmly embedded in Los Angeles culture during the 2010 mid-term election. Jenny, the 27-year-old protagonist, faced with the tragic disappearance of a friend, assumes the role of amateur detective, and finds herself battling financial tycoons, corrupt politicians, and the treacherous Baja drug cartel in her search to uncover the truth.

Jenny’s investigation also takes her into the liminal world of undocumented immigrants, which leads her to seek the help of the handsome director of an immigrant rights organization to whom she is strongly attracted. But will the deadly enmity of the rich end her budding romance?

Book cover image for Her demonic Angel: and other short stories
View full details

Synopsis

Her demonic Angel and other short stories, published in 2016, is a collection of all of my short stories written thus far. This baker's dozen of short stories have been written in a variety of genres so hopefully there should be something for everyone. Some tales are stranger than others, but all could be said to be different shades of dark. Despite its somewhat suggestive title, Her demonic Angel is not erotica.

To whet your appetite, here are the titles of some of the short stories: ‘The boy they called Dragon’, ‘The day nobody gave a damn’, ‘An email from Jane’, ‘Stuff’, ‘Getting rid of the enemy’, ‘Skin’, ‘Too beautiful’, ‘Philately will get you nowhere’, ‘Mirror, mirror’, ‘In memoriam'.

Available in Kindle, paperback, and audiobook editions.

Synopsis

The Coach and the Professor
Carolyn Trent's logically mapped journey to becoming the perfect professor of English was hijacked the day she became academic adviser to the Ashton University men's basketball team. The hijacker was C.J. Draper, the team's infuriating, irreverent and sexy new coach.

C.J. has never let adversity stop him - if he had he'd never have gotten this far. He's not about to start by letting Professor Trent derail him. If he chose to rattle her ivory tower it was just for the fun of seeing the fiery woman beneath the marble-cool exterior . . . wasn't it?

When logic clashes with ambition in the game of love, who will win?

Synopsis

Prince Karl longs to once more be plain Karl Wethers, Wyoming rancher. Instead, his sense of responsibility, nurtured as a cowboy and honed in the U.S. Army, won’t let him turn his back on King Jozef of Bariavak. But he has a plan. If he can pull it off

Then international media consultant Harmon Reed re-enters his life. The Army brat who liked to juggle lit sticks of dynamite is now a woman who could explode that dynamite in his face. He’s fully occupied with trying to keep her from knowing anything about the complications of his royal life, because he will never trust her again, despite the pull of a love long gone.

For Harmon, what started as a youthful summer fling ignited into a love that shook her to her core. Equally smitten, Karl saw something beyond her beauty and rebellious streak. Then Harmon broke it off – and broke Karl’s heart. They went their separate ways, but no matter how far apart they traveled, the embers of first love remained. And the slim hope of a second chance floated in the periphery.

Oh, yes, these two have a history. A history neither has forgotten … but can they forgive?

View full details

Synopsis

Murder on the Sky Ride, Fiction/Mystery

This novel is full of action and good detective work. It also gives a picture of the diverse ethnic and cultural makeup of Texas. It gives a private view of two Texas families, one whose members range from dope smuggler to successful attorney-politician, and the other ranging from a hot-head Chicano activist to a Texas Ranger.

Some of the characters: Gar Garcia, Texas Ranger under special orders of the governor; Steve Pearce, 21, ex-convict, trying to stay out of trouble but not succeeding; Johnny Diaz, almost, but not quite, bad to the bone; Burke Masters, big man with big money; and Hawknose, career criminal.

The story is set in San Marcos, Texas, at an amusement park located where the San Marcos River, as a giant spring, wells up out of the ground cool and clear. San Marcos is a real city but events and characters portrayed there are fictional. Real people are mentioned, such as Lyndon B. Johnson and Jimmy Carter, but are not characters.

Historical notes about the Texas Rangers are accurate. The mammalian diving reflex described in the novel is accurate, as well as the homicide exclusion in insurance policies, and oil field technicalities, but events surrounding them are fictional.

The story takes place in 1978 when detectives had to work harder than now. They had two-way radios, telephone beepers, but no cell phones or personal computers. Most police departments had no computers at all. Police reports were laboriously typed out by hand over several carbon copies, the last of which were barely legible. Police work was real work. Go along with Texas Ranger Gar Garcia as he works through clues, diversions, and deception.

“Superbly gratifying.” -- CataRomance Reviews

A Stranger in His Own Town, to His Own Daughter

When the bad boy of Tobias, Wisconsin, returns home, the repercussions reach far and deep.
Handsome and charming Zach Corbett left the small town eight years ago to make his own way... and never looked back.
Not at the pregnant ex-girlfriend he left behind. Or at what his departure might mean for his brother Steve, whose wedding was put on hold to raise a baby.
Tensions are high, and there’s only one person who might be able to redeem the Corbetts’ troubled family reunion, a woman who has truly seen Zach since they were kids.
Fran Dalton has always seen beyond the bravado to the pain in those beautiful baby blues of Zach’s. Now, she can see he’s different. And, unlike when they were kids, now she’s grabbed his attention.
If only she can draw Zach into a loving relationship, and prove how much he’s changed, his fractured family might just find it in their hearts to forgive. And heal.

Can Zach and Fran escape the past’s hold to make a future?

View full details

Synopsis

The words in this loosely autobiographical second book in the Mug Trilogy were triggered by the entanglement between Mug, a recently divorced, disinherited, temporarily sex-obsessed woman and Michael. Her Gordian knot was a complex, mendacious, Scottish baggage handler who destiny threw her way late one night in early 2004. She was an honest, too trusting, troubled woman in her late forties. He was an enigma eleven years her junior who was hiding many shocking secrets. Mug's original plan was to write about their unusual story as a present to give to him for Christmas. Little did she know that her gift would almost kill him. She had wanted the opportunity to describe in her book her life prior to their meeting, because it shaped how she felt about him, why she tolerated what others might deem unacceptable. The purpose of Mug's book was to drastically change into a desperate effort to make sense of unfolding bizarre events and to help them both deal with the aftermath.

Being an avid aquarium hobbyist, it is obviously just a matter of time before Neil finds himself travelling by wormhole to a small circumbinary planet in the constellation of Cygnus. Okay, it's probably more relevant that he is the grandson of a woman who had befriended extra-terrestrials at the turn of the 21st century. Having been chosen to broker a peace agreement between Mortian and Earth peoples, he is hampered in his efforts by the disappearance of his Earthling friend, Aysha, the general unpredictability of life on planet Melinda and the sinister chicanery of the chilloks, a species evolved from ants that is bent on overthrowing humankind...

A perfect opportunity to try acclaimed author Patricia McLinn’s contemporary western romance series: a boxed set with the first book of each of three series. The three complete novels in Wyoming Wild are:

-- Almost a Bride, from the Wyoming Wildflowers series

ALMOST A BRIDE

Wyoming Wildflowers

Dave Currick was everything Matty Brennan wanted for as along as she could remember. Right up until he broke her heart six years ago. Now that she's returned to Wyoming for good, what she wants more than anything is to save her family's ranch. Even if that means swallowing her pride and asking Dave to marry her.



Matty's up to something - Dave knows that much. Just as he knows that Matty needs help, so of course he'll provide it, just as he has all her life. Doing what's best for Matty is second nature, and part of the cowboy code. Even when it comes to marrying her in name only. Although he can't resist one hot-blooded kiss after the I-dos of their marriage of convenience wedding.



Maybe - just maybe - his Matty will become more to him than Almost a Bride.



Wildflowers have to be strong and resilient to bloom amid the rugged western beauty of Wyoming - and so do the women.

Synopsis

Ranchers, and Reluctant Royals
In The Forgotten Prince, Book 7 of USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn’s acclaimed The Wedding Series, Prince Karl is more Wyoming cowboy than Bariavakian royalty, despite the high hopes of King Jozef. But Karl, who left the ranch as a young man to serve in the U.S. Army, knows a thing or two about responsibility, and loyalty. For Army brat Harmon, what started as a youthful summer fling ignited into a love that shook her to her core. Equally smitten, Karl saw something beyond her beauty and rebellious streak. Until Harmon broke it off. Now, the slim hope of a second chance at love becomes entwined in a royal scheme. We meet young ranch hand Karl in Not a Family Man, the prequel to The Forgotten Prince and the story of Wyoming ranch foreman Tucker Gates and Jenny Peters, the city-bred new owner of the Double Bar X.
Revisit other characters you’ve come to love in Prelude to a Wedding, Wedding Party, Grady’s Wedding, The Christmas Princess, The Surprise Princess and At the Heart’s Command (from the A Place Called Home series).

Book 7, The Forgotten Prince
They Have a History -- Can It Be Rewritten?

Prince Karl longs to once more be plain Karl Wethers, Wyoming rancher. Instead, his sense of responsibility, nurtured as a cowboy and honed in the U.S. Army, won’t let him turn his back on King Jozef of Bariavak. But he has a plan. If he can pull it off.
Then international media consultant Harmon Reed re-enters his life. The Army brat who liked to juggle lit sticks of dynamite is now a woman who could explode that dynamite in his face. He’s fully occupied with trying to keep her from knowing anything about the complications of his royal life, because he will never trust her again, despite the pull of a love long gone.
For Harmon, what started as a youthful summer fling ignited into a love that shook her to her core. Equally smitten, Karl saw something beyond her beauty and rebellious streak. Then Harmon broke it off – and broke Karl’s heart. They went their separate ways, but no matter how far apart they traveled, the embers of first love remained. And the slim hope of a second chance floated in the periphery.
Oh, yes, these two have a history. A history neither has forgotten … but can they forgive?

Not a Family Man
The Uncommon Love of a Cowboy and a City Girl

To Wyoming ranch foreman Tucker Gates, the only good owner for the Double Bar X was an absentee one. That's how it had been for ten years. And then came divorcee Jenny Peters. Bringing her two whining, spoiled kids and her city-bred fairy-tale views of life – and love – in the West.
Jenny wasn't going to let Tucker scare her away from the new life she wanted to build for herself and her kids. No matter that he could be as hard as the mountains around them. No matter that she found totally unexpected comfort from his rough strength.
But what next? Because Tucker Gates was a lot of things, but he was absolutely clear that he was not a family man.

The Forgotten Prince and Not a Family Man are moving, passionate contemporary romances that will captivate fans of Bella Andre, Susan Mallery and Sarah Wilson.

"Colorful characters, intriguing, intelligent mystery, plus the state of Wyoming leaping off every page." -- Emilie Richards, USA Today Bestselling Author

What readers are saying about the Caught Dead in Wyoming series:

“She writes a little like Janet Evanovich only better.”
“E.M.’s internal monologues are sharp, snappy and often hilarious.”
"A terrific series with a western flair. . . . Great characters that you would want as your friends. Smart, funny, but not perfect."
“Hoping this series lasts forever!”
“McLinn has created in E.M. a female protagonist who is flawed but likable, never silly or cartoonish, and definitely not made of cardboard.”

A Caught Dead in Wyoming cameo

In Ride the River: Rodeo Knights, a new western romance with suspense from Patricia McLinn, Reggie (Regina) Moran is following her dream of becoming an investigator by tracking bank robberies in towns associated with the rodeo circuit. She’s focused on catching this robber … until she discovers her high school sweetheart, rodeo cowboy Chapin Johnson, is a prime suspect.
One of the three rodeo towns they visit is Sherman, Wyoming, so expect some cameos by Caught Dead in Wyoming characters. First-time visitors won’t get lost, though, because Ride the River: Rodeo Knights is a standalone read.'

Synopsis

Her rodeo cowboy ex is back ... as her prime suspect.

After Regina, longing to be an investigator, spots a pattern in far-flung bank robberies, she wins approval to go undercover at three rodeos. The first day of the first rodeo, she runs into – literally – her childhood sweetheart, Chapin.
And has the horrifying realization that W.C. Johnson, one of three prime suspects who fit the robbery pattern, is her Chapin -- William Chapin Johnson.

To keep Reggie from blabbing his name in that first instant, Chapin grabs her and kisses her. One word and she can ruin what he’s been working for.

Chapin is trying to make a comeback on the QT. He’d been on the cusp of stardom as a bronc rider until a nasty injury and botched recovery leaves experts saying he’s done. As far as the rodeo world’s concerned he’s retired and living happily on his ranch. But he can’t let it go. Needing time to work his way back in, he’s been rodeoing far from home, in unfamiliar events, and under the name Bill Johnson.

Now, to keep from being outed just as he’s making progress, he has to take Reggie into his confidence. But even after all these years he knows her too well not to realize she’s keeping a secret from him. What on earth is she up to?

Will Chapin find out what Reggie’s doing? Can Reggie trust Chapin with proof he’s not the bank robber? How will Chapin react if he finds out he’s a suspect? Can they overcome the issues that drove them apart in the first place? Who the heck is robbing banks on the rodeo circuit and can he (or she) be stopped?

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

1 -- Wyoming Wildflowers: The Beginning (Book 1, Wyoming Wildflowers)

Before the bestselling and award-winning Wyoming Wildflowers series, there was another love story, one that laid the foundation for all those that came after.
Ed Currick’s and Donna Roberts’ worlds couldn’t have been any more different – a rancher from Wyoming and an up-and-coming Broadway musical actress on a national tour. What could have been a momentary encounter sparks desire . . . and more. But can there be anything but heartbreak ahead when they have only days before their dreams pull them apart?

2 -- The Christmas Princess (Book 5, The Wedding Series)

The coming Christmas season isn’t looking great for April Gareaux. Her job is uninspiring, her engagement is off, and she has nowhere to live. Then comes an extraordinary offer – spend the holidays in Washington with King Jozef of Bariavak as his possible long-lost granddaughter. Even more extraordinary is the man behind the offer and the one who will be beside her through the coming weeks, Hunter Pierce, a stoic State Department agent with secrets of his own.
King Jozef has known tragedy in his life. As this lovely young woman brings joy to his holidays, he can't resist some royal matchmaking.

3 -- Falling for Her (Book 3, Seasons in a Small Town)

High school principal Josh Kincannon has his hands full as a single father of three, and dating is mostly a misty memory. Then he meets tech executive Vanessa Irish, finding her conscientious and intelligent, but distant and distracted. The more curious he becomes, the more he discovers about her that has him feeling things a whole lot hotter than curiosity.
Numbers, that's where Vanessa is comfortable. Not all this interaction with people that she's been pitched into. Especially interacting with Josh. Why does he insist on drawing her into his small town, his life, his children? And the biggest question -- what kind of man is this, who not only looks at her, but SEES her, when that's the last thing she wants?

Readers Love Wyoming Wildflowers:

"If you love to laugh; love to cry; or love to laugh and cry at the same time, then you'll definitely want to read Almost a Bride."

"Smart, stubborn and irresistible."

”Nothing short of heart consuming and thrilling."

Praise for The Wedding Series:

“McLinn writes a delightful, romantic tale with The Christmas Princess, which holds all the coziness of the holiday spirit. … McLinn is an expert at revealing the layers enveloping her characters. With each reveal, sometimes exquisitely subtle, we are pulled in deeper to be active participants in the emotionally charged, yet heart-melting romance. This is Happy Holidays with a grateful sigh.” – USA Today

“A wonderful series that will make you laugh and cry. Each page is filled with love that will eventually come to the people who so need it. A must read!” – 5-star review

Synopsis

“If you’ve been feeling burned out and let down by category romance, the Wyoming Wildflowers series will remind you how much there is to love in the genre.” — Writers Club Romance Group
- - - - -
Revisit the characters you’ve come to love in The Beginning, Almost a Bride, Match Made in Wyoming and My Heart Remembers in this bundled duo that continues the Wyoming Wildflowers series with JACK'S HEART (Book 5) and its prequel, A NEW WORLD. Wyoming Wildflowers: Box Set 2 contains moving, passionate contemporary Western romances with a touch of humor that will captivate fans of RaeAnne Thayne, Barbara Freethy and Debbie Macomber. The stories revolve around the loves and lives of the good people of Knighton, Wyoming, including those who own the ranches and those in the little town who keep the health clinic, law office, diner, school and flower shop running.

Book 5, Jack’s Heart
Valerie is very pregnant and very lost. Her car is jammed in a snowy Wyoming ditch when a white knight in a cowboy hat shows up. Ranch foreman Jack handles anything that needs handling with cool, quiet competence, including a baby who’s decided it’s time to come into the world.
A few years later, Valerie returns to Knighton to thank the hero who delivered her baby. Okay, maybe she’s wondered about him over the years. How could she not?
Yes, Jack can handle anything. Except this open, energetic, talkative woman and her short-stuff kid who gets under his guard. Because they demand the one thing from him that he can’t handle – love.

A New World
Affaire de Coeur contemporary author of the year finalist
Before Valerie tried to heal a cowboy in Jack’s Heart, she pushed her cousin Eleanor into the arms of Cahill in A New World.
Eleanor refuses to be charmed by the Irish balladeer she hires to strum up business for her Gloucester, Massachusetts, beach restaurant. She's far too practical for a workplace romance ... or to fall for a fantasy-spinner like Cahill. An immigrant with temporary status, Cahill wants to share his future with the strong-minded, too-serious-for-her-own-good Eleanor. But he must convince her of his staying power. And his time is running out

Readers rave about JACK'S HEART (from 5-star reviews):
“Very sweet and sad all at the same time. The gatherings, the glimpses in the Curricks’ life, the way Jack heals the horses, the connection he has with Val and Addie, are all the elements that make this book so lovable. … This is a very distinct book -- like all [the Wyoming Wildflowers books] were. ... The location is amazing, the story of ‘you and me’ is heart-warming, and the grand gesture is the icing on the cake.”
“McLinn is the real deal writer. So satisfying.”
“Exceptionally well crafted … Attention to detail and precise use of the language highlight quality storytelling.”

Praise for the Wyoming Wildflowers stories:
”Nothing short of heart consuming and thrilling. I've loved every one and feel like I know the people personally. I can't wait for the next installment. … Amazing and touching story. … Smart, stubborn and irresistible. … So enjoyable I couldn’t put it down. … Delightful! … Love, love, loved them. Well written, wonderful characters with the most realistic, flowing dialog I've read in a long time.”

Coaches, and a Matchmaking King
In The Surprise Princess, Book 6 of USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn’s acclaimed The Wedding Series, King Jozef of Bariavak continues his search for his long-missing granddaughter, and State Department security official Hunter Pierce is on the case again. This time the clues lead to Ashton, Wisconsin, and the athletic offices of Ashton University.

Draper and tutored by Carolyn Trent. The latter two return in The Surprise Princess as mentors to Katie, and, okay, they might take part in a little matchmaking themselves.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Book 6, The Surprise Princess
A Princess? No Way
Katie is a perfectly ordinary young woman living a perfectly ordinary life in small-town Wisconsin … isn’t she?
The most interesting thing about her is that she works for the men’s basketball office at Ashton. If she considers the biggest perk of the job being around Brad, the assistant basketball coach, that also makes her ordinary, because what woman wouldn’t feel that way? So these people coming around saying she could be the long-lost granddaughter of the King of Bariavak have to be wrong … don’t they?
Brad has a real soft spot for Katie. She stirs his protectiveness, his penchant for the underdog, and, possibly, certain other reactions he’s not about to indulge. So he’s going to do his damnedest to make sure Katie gets all that she deserves, including the crown that might be her right … even though it means Her Royal Highness will never again look at a basketball coach from Wisconsin like he’s the king of her heart.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Hoops (an RITA Finalist)
Before Brad volunteers to be Katie's protector, he played on a college basketball team that had a very special season.

The Coach and the Professor
Carolyn Trent's logically mapped journey to becoming the perfect professor of English was hijacked the day she became academic adviser to the Ashton University men's basketball team. The hijacker was C.J. Draper, the team's infuriating, irreverent and sexy new coach.
C.J. has never let adversity stop him - if he had he'd never have gotten this far. He's not about to start by letting Professor Trent derail him. If he chose to rattle her ivory tower it was just for the fun of seeing the fiery woman beneath the marble-cool exterior . . . wasn't it?
When logic clashes with ambition in the game of love, will anyone win?
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
The Surprise Princess and its prequel, Hoops, are moving, passionate small-town romances that will captivate fans of Bella Andre, Susan Mallery and Sarah Wilson.

Synopsis

Jack and Valerie invite you to share the big day with them and other characters you’ve come to love. Actually, it will be more like their big week, with lots of goings-on at the Slash-C Ranch and in Knighton, Wyoming. Plus visits from characters from the Bardville, Wyoming and A Place Called Home series.
It’s going to be a huge party, with new romantic intrigue and the intrusion of some unfinished business.
If you missed Jack and Val’s story, read it now in Jack’s Heart. And for more background on the Massachusetts side of the wedding party, check out A New World, the prequel to Jack's Heart.
A note from author Patricia McLinn: Each of my Wyoming Wildflowers books is a stand-alone story, with no cliff-hangers. However, if you are new to Wyoming Wildflowers, this latest installment, A Cowboy Wedding, is best read with a little introduction to the many friends and family attending Jack and Val's ceremony. Almost a Bride, my first book in the series, is a good starting point. Or the prequel, Wyoming Wildflowers: The Beginning, provides some back story. I've also included a wedding party and guest list in A Cowboy Wedding to help sort out all the characters. I hope you will join in the fun.

A Cowboy Wedding, Book 7 of USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn's Wyoming Wildflowers series, is a moving, passionate contemporary romance that will captivate fans of RaeAnne Thayne, Barbara Freethy and Debbie Macomber.

Readers’ raves of Jack’s Heart (from 5-star reviews):

“Very sweet and sad all at the same time. The gatherings, the glimpses in the Curricks’ life, the way Jack heals the horses, the connection he has with Val and Addie, are all the elements that make this book so lovable. … This is a very distinct book -- like all [the Wyoming Wildflowers books] were. ... The location is amazing, the story of ‘you and me’ is heart warming, and the grand gesture is the icing on the cake.”

“McLinn is the real deal writer. So satisfying.”

“Exceptionally well crafted … Attention to detail and precise use of the language highlight quality storytelling.”

Wildflowers have to be strong and resilient to bloom amid the rugged western beauty of Wyoming - and so do the women.

Synopsis

Wilda, a single parent, lived in a small town with her son. She saw her husband’s dreams as her targets. She went beyond the chains to fulfill those dreams. Alex was four years old when she lost her husband in an accident. She always felt thankful to him regarding his ‘life insurance’ from which she got some money. Alex was only motivation she was left with; she called him soil of her eyes. It was enough for her to discover a small world to live in.
Though the story line follows Alex's life; where it was started and where it went, throughout the story, author KarmSavi M.S.

But, there is always a story behind the story; why Wilda sold the flower shop and started working in kindergarten…

Book cover image for Rites of Heirdron Duology: Epic Science Fantasy
View full details

Synopsis

“Tactical decision-making under a king's command that reads like a classic Star Trek space battle.”

“A duology that defies easy categorization, but reaches beyond genre definitions to entice readers from military sci-fi, and political sci-fi circles alike.”
-D. Donovan - Midwest Book Review

They poisoned his planet, massacred his people, and violated his mother.

Now, they're coming for him.

A bastard prince, born to a dishonored queen, Zrahnz is the last hope of a dying world nearly decimated after a treacherous interplanetary betrayal.

He was denied his rule, denied his birthright, and denied the one truth that would save his life.

He wasn't supposed to survive, he wasn't supposed to fight, and he wasn't supposed to receive, the
RITES OF HEIRDRON

~D. Donovan, Midwest Book Review "Rites of Heirdron is a powerful fantasy telling. Its dual focus on changing worlds and hearts moves deftly from personal to political realms. It's a recommended pick for readers who like their sci-fi spiced with more than light romance, but who want that romance wrapped in the heavier cloak of sacrifice, duty, and life-changing decisions."

~R Dzemo for Readers' Favorite "Newland Moon has the gift of integrating strong themes like love, friendship, loyalty, faith, and redemption into a beautiful story in a seamless manner. The writing is flawless, crisp, and tight, with vivid descriptions that capture the intense action excellently."

Orbs of Trenihgea: Book II

After an interplanetary betrayal nearly decimated his world, Zrahnz struggled to protect his people and reclaim his legitimacy as their ruler.

Now, he has vowed to defend the Triax planets torn asunder by a corrupt galactic council, and the “shadow whisperers” who’ve manipulated them all.

Allied with First Commander Lezayen and his QuNytwanian fleet, Zrahnz must unite the factions that deceived them in the past. The ensuing battle is for more than the survival of Triaxeyn, it’s for the liberation of the galaxy.

View full details

Synopsis

A runaway bride goes west, and a royal introduction in D.C.

Revisit the characters you’ve come to love in Prelude to a Wedding, Wedding Party and Grady’s Wedding in this boxed set duo. Paul Monroe’s little sister, Judi, leaves her groom at the altar and runs off to Wyoming in The Runaway Bride, Book 4 of USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn’s acclaimed The Wedding Series. In Book 5, the series takes another turn as April Gareaux, who has left Lake Forest, Illinois, the Roberts family and their circle of friends to strike out on her own, winds up alone in Washington, D.C., for the holidays. Who would ever guess that April would soon become wrapped up in royal intrigue?

Book 4, The Runaway Bride
The father of the bride-to-be noted the concern and confusion on his daughter’s face. Just before her walk down the aisle, Judi Monroe overheard a conversation that indicated marrying Sterling Carroll might be a big mistake. Escaping her socialite wedding in Lake Forest, she headed west, covering her tracks as she went.
In an isolated corner of Wyoming, she swerved her car to avoid hitting a horse and rider on the road, crashing into a tree. She’s rescued by that lone rider — or Ranger, as she fleetingly recalls — a rugged rancher named Thomas Vance. Judi just needed some time, to puzzle out the predicament she’d left behind in Illinois. But here she was in the arms of a doubting Thomas, a man with a strong jaw, deep-green eyes and a commanding presence.
When Judi dodges his personal questions, not to mention his penetrating gaze, Thomas’ teenage half-sister Becky suggests amnesia. Judi seizes on this foot in the Diamond V door, and stays on as a caretaker for Thomas’ beloved grandmother.
Judi finds a family on the Diamond V, even as her masquerade as the home health aide “Helga” slowly unravels. But as she falls hard for her horse whisperer, she fears her secret will only cause him to bolt from her life. As for Thomas, he knows this impostor is lying, and it wouldn’t be the first time an outsider betrayed his family. Yet he can’t help but trust this sexy, independent, smart woman who has lassoed his heart.

Book 5, The Christmas Princess
The coming Christmas season isn’t looking great for April Gareaux. Her job is uninspiring, her engagement is off, and she has nowhere to live. Certainly her family would take her in, especially Leslie and Grady Roberts and their circle of friends who have become her extended family. But it’s time she stops relying on them.
Then comes an extraordinary offer – spend the holidays in Washington with King Jozef of Bariavak as his possible long-lost granddaughter. Even more extraordinary is the man behind the offer and the one who will be beside her through the coming weeks, Hunter Pierce.
This is the last assignment Hunter would pick. Determination and grit have moved him beyond his past in Bariavak. Yet, here it is standing in front of him again, refusing to be ignored. … Just like his reactions to April. How can he fight what he’s feeling when they’re together all the time.
King Jozef has known tragedy in his life. Now, comes this lovely young woman bringing joy to his holidays. How can he resist dabbling in some royal matchmaking. Wouldn’t it be delightful if he could give April a Christmas gift she will never forget?
