~~~ Wildflowers have to be strong and resilient to bloom amid the rugged beauty of Wyoming – and so do the women. ~~~ “A don't-miss treat!” -- Rendezvous Dave Currick was everything Matty Brennan wanted for as long as she could remember. Right up until he broke her heart six years ago. Now that she's returned to Wyoming and her small-town home 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 did all the time they were childhood sweethearts. Doing what's best for Matty is second nature. Even when it comes to agreeing to a marriage of convenience. 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 beauty of Wyoming – and so do the women. ~~~ "Melt your heart romance" -- Old Book Barn Gazette When fire ravages Wyoming land, fireweed is among the first plants to return, brightening a 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 cowboy Cal Ruskoff. Armed with the same grace and grit as the wildflower fireweed, Taylor also has allies - a matchmaking friend, a Wyoming blizzard, high-octane mutual attraction, being snowbound, and a rescue dog 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. "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." – 5* review Match Made in Wyoming delivers romance, humor, and emotional impact in the second book in the contemporary western romance collection Wyoming Wildflowers from award-winning and USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn. ~~~ Get all the blooms in the Wyoming Wildflowers Series!

Divorce a husband, lose a career …grapple with a murder. 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 defective toaster repaired. 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 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.

Far Hills Ranch has bound the Susland family for nearly a century and a half. For just as long, there’s been a legend that the ranch and its family are cursed. Now, says the legend, the current generation is the last with a chance to break the curse. 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. Once, he’d rejected a young Ellyn’s advances, because he could not give her the life she deserved. Instead, Grif stood up as best man when Ellyn married his best friend. He became a member of the family, a safe friend to her, the godfather of her children. But Ellyn is a widow now, back in Far Hills, Wyoming, living on his family's ranch there with her two young children, and struggling as a single parent to give her children what they need. 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. 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 Grif even dream of second chances at love, when they should have no chance at all. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ “A beautiful, emotional story that cuts right through the reader's heart.” Rendezvous “A touching and believable love story.” Romance Journal “Characters and a story that will stay with you long after you read the last page and the book is resting comfortably on your keeper shelf.” Writers Club Romance Group "Grif is a hero of the most wonderful kind" - Road to Romance ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Grif’s adventures in At the Heart’s Command, by USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn, form the second book in the contemporary western romance series A Place Called Home.

A rodeo producer, dead in the bull pen. Accident or murder? Elizabeth "E.M." Danniher, 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 bucking bulls — of a rodeo producer preparing for Sherman’s annual Fourth of July Rodeo catches the attention of Elizabeth and her KWMT-TV colleague Mike 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 Mike 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, Elizabeth receives a murderous introduction to the world of rodeo.

The writing is excellent, the twists and turns keep the brain engaged, and Elizabeth's wry commentary keeps a smile on my face.” "She writes a little like Janet Evanovich only better.” “E.M.’s internal monologues are sharp, snappy and often hilarious.” “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.” “While the mystery itself is twisty-turny and thoroughly engaging, it's the smart and witty writing that I loved the best.” – Diane Chamberlain, bestselling author

A Free Spirit and a Reformed Badboy -- a Perfect Match? Maddy, Christine and Amy are thrilled that their old college suite-mate has written a bestselling book, How to Have the Perfect Life--until they realize she used them as examples of how women let fear screw up their lives. The worst part is...it's sort of true. Together they make a pact: they each have one year to face down their fears--and maybe show Miss Perfect a thing or two! Book One: Almost Perfect Maddy was always the artistic one of the group, full of life from her saucy red curls to her vintage hippie skirts. Her challenge, the friends decide, is to get her artwork accepted at a gallery. A job as arts director at a summer camp near Santa Fe--with its thriving art scene--seems like just the thing. There's just one catch: The camp is run by Maddy's high school flame, Joe, whose heart she smashed when she chose her art over marriage to him. His anger over the breakup hasn't cooled one bit. But neither has their attraction. Old desires burn hotter than ever as Joe makes it clear there's only one way back into his heart: She has to get serious about the art career she once valued above all else. But will falling in love help or hinder Maddy as she struggles to meet her challenge? "Entertaining and touching."--Booklist "Ms. Ortolon is a gem of a new author."--Romantic Times
