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.

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.

"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

A Rodeo Producer, Dead in the Bull Pen. Accident or Murder?



Elizabeth, until recently a top-flight national TV journalist, is regaining her footing after a dizzying demotion to tiny—and entirely foreign to her—Sherman, Wyoming. But her equilibrium faces a major challenge.



The apparently accidental death — under the hooves of rodeo bulls — of a rodeo producer preparing for Sherman’s annual Fourth of July Rodeo catches the attention of Elizabeth and her KWMT-TV colleague Michael Paycik. Not only is it a major story about the region’s biggest event, but it’s being outrageously mishandled by the station’s egocentric anchor.



As Elizabeth and Michael dig, area rancher Thomas Burrell joins the investigation, providing background on suspects — and there are plenty because the victim had many enemies. But Tom has divided loyalties, so Elizabeth doubts his commitment to finding the truth no matter what. Not to mention that both Mike and Tom show an interest in her ... they might be okay with working together in a peculiar triangle, but the points of this geometry is starting to get under her skin.



… From the tip of the rodeo queen’s tiara, to “agricultural byproducts” ground into the arena dust, TV reporter Elizabeth “E.M.” Danniher receives a murderous introduction to the world of rodeo.

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.

Feathered Quill - 2017 GOLD Award - Children's Fiction - Animals
Texas Authors - First Place - Juvenile - Coming of Age
Reader review: A compelling, well-developed plot that will charm and engage young readers. Inspiring tale of overcoming life's challenges with courage and determination.

Twelve-year-old Mary was disabled at the age of four by the same virus that took the life of her mother. While she longs to have a horse of her own, she's limited to reading horse books. A talented artist, she spends her days on a blanket in the grass sketching the horses at the farm next door. She falls in love with one of the foals and is outraged to learn the filly is considered worthless as it was born lame.

Mary befriends and enlists the help of twelve-year-old Laura, whose family owns the horse farm. Against the better judgment of the farm manager, a brief reprieve is negotiated for the foal's life. The girls conspire to raise money to save her, but time is running out. Sadly, it appears the expensive surgery the foal needs has little chance to correct her problem anyway. Mary isn't about to give up. She sacrifices what she holds dear, including the trust of her papa, to gain her heart's desire. Will she lose everything in her struggle to save the foal?

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

Is anyone ever really free of their past? Is it truly possible to start over fresh?



Etta was certainly going to try. After her turbulent undergraduate years, she was getting a fresh start in Marquette and finishing her dream. She’d pour everything she had into a healthy mind, body and spirit and work to become the best writer she could. What a dream spot to do it, along the shores of Lake Superior.



Tom was forging a new vision for his life after a career-ending injury as a power player on Northern Michigan’s college hockey team. The NHL was no longer in his future. But what were his prospects? Where would he find that something he’d longed for, to build a life like his parents had? How could he form what they had found together?



After a meeting of the minds, Tom and Etta create a bond from friendship. That friendship blossoms into romance. But is it really possible to start anew with so much baggage and no clear vision of the future? Do your experiences shape you into someone who can make something pure and clean from the crumbling embers? Or will the past always come looking for you when you least expect it?



Words from another Henrietta, who re-built her life from tragedy, bring the answers that allow Etta to move forward. But is it already too late?



Henrietta is stand-alone coming-of-age romance, which is the first in a three-book series, set in Marquette, Michigan and northern Iowa.



(Contains adult language and content)



Are you tired of romances that are always about a billionaire or a bad boy? Or better yet, the troublemaker who is in reality a good man but nobody knows it? They aren't realistic and after a few of them, they grow old. Patricia M Jackson strives to write romances about people you might meet in real life, people like you and I. They may do somewhat extraordinary things in her books, but their fifteen minutes of fame are quickly gone and they go on to live the lives of a Regular Jane and Joe.

Synopsis

Walk tells the story of a nightmarish scramble along the wild coastline of South Africa by the survivors of the wreck of the Grosvenor on 5 August 1782. Having decided to walk to the Cape of Good Hope, beginning at Lambasi in northern Pondoland, the few survivors ended up in the dune deserts not far from what we now know as
Port Elizabeth.

Walk takes the reader, step by step, day by day, on young William Hubberly’s horrific trek. While indisputably fiction, Walk sails a good deal closer to the historical truth than most nonfiction you will read and is a haunting parable on the meeting of Europe and Africa.
