What do you get when the new ranch owner is a socialite and the foreman is a tough cowboy? You get a 5-Star Patricia McLinn romance! #amreading #western #romance

nafm_ebook_NOT A FAMILY MAN is a 5-STAR MUST READ!

I have never read a book by this author that I didn’t love and want to read again. This story pits a crusty cowboy against a socialite who has escaped a stifling marriage and wants a better life for her children. The story pleases on all levels. The characters grow, change, explore and finally recognize the rightness of their choices. Highly recommend!” – Amazon 5-Star review

“… Well-fleshed-out characters, true-to-life adventure and sensuous love scenes. This is the kind of book you read more than once just for the nice, warm feeling it leaves with you.” — Rendezvous

“I’ve become a huge Patricia McLinn fan.”

— 5-Star review

With one exception, the rooms Jenny glimpsed as their ragged procession trailed Tucker Gates’ long strides were clear of all extraneous decoration. In fact they were lifeless. Sheets covered large shapes that could be a sofa, a chair, a dining-room table, but in the dim light they resembled huge, wily beasts — or an overcrowded graveyard with blank headstones. The drapes were closed, the walls bare.

With no offer of help with their luggage from either Tucker Gates or Deaver Smith, they’d each grabbed the overnight case Jenny had insisted they carry on-board “in case.”

She’d been thinking along the lines of lost luggage, not a sojourn in the Addams Family mansion.

NOT A FAMILY MAN

Not a Family Man, the story of Wyoming ranch foreman Tucker Gates and the new owner for the Double Bar X, divorcee Jenny Peters, is the prequel to The Forgotten Prince, the upcoming Book 7 in USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn’s acclaimed Wedding Series.

Tucker was skeptical of Jenny’s city-bred fairy-tale views of life – and love – in the West. But she wasn’t going to let him 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 Jenny 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 Christmas Princess is a USA Today Must-Read Romance! @PatriciaMcLinn #amreading #romance #wedding

the-christmas-princessTHE CHRISTMAS PRINCESS  is a USA Today Must-Read romance!

In its “Recommended Romance” column, USA Today says:

“McLinn writes a delightful, romantic tale with The Christmas Princess, which holds all the coziness of the holiday spirit. The Wedding Series continues with April and Hunter and the unusual assignment — pretending to be a princess — that stands between them. While the request may seem straightforward and doable, especially from Hunter’s perspective, the exercise of turning April into this fantasy ignites emotions and feelings that can render him speechless.

“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.”

THE CHRISTMAS PRINCESS

In Book 5 of USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn’s Wedding Series, the stories shift from Chicago to Washington, D.C., and wrap in a little royalty, beginning with the enchanting “The Christmas Princess.”

Christmas isn’t looking so jolly for April Gareaux. Her job is uninspiring, her engagement is off, and she has nowhere to live. Yes, her family would take her in, especially Leslie and Grady Roberts and their 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.

Determination and grit have moved Hunter 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? 

A vibration started at the base of April’s skull and zinged down her spine. “You’ve been watching me.”

Hunter’s eyelids lowered and rose once. That was it. One blink. Otherwise, he could have been a lump of granite — albeit a nicely shaped lump.

“She’s really a very nice girl, despite her rough edges. I’m sure you’ll like her.” MY FAIR PRINCESS by @VanessaKellyAut #amreading #romance #historical #Regency

My Fair Princess 2TODAY’S REVOLVING BOOK is the historical romance MY FAIR PRINCESS by Vanessa Kelly. NEW RELEASE! #REGENCY!

First, Vanessa Kelly brought readers The Renegade Royals. Now, in a delightfully witty new series, she introduces The Improper Princesses—three young women descended from royalty, each bound for her own thrilling adventure . . . 

Despite being the illegitimate daughter of a prince, Gillian Dryden is happily ignorant of all social graces. After growing up wild in Italy, Gillian has been ordered home to England to find a suitable husband. And Charles Valentine Penley, the excessively proper, distractingly handsome Duke of Leverton, has agreed to help transform her from a willful tomboy to a blushing debutante.

Powerful and sophisticated, Charles can make or break reputations with a well-placed word. But his new protégée, with her habit of hunting bandits and punching earls, is a walking scandal. The ton is aghast . . . but Charles is thoroughly intrigued. Tasked with taking the hoyden in hand, he longs to take her in his arms instead. Can such an outrageous attraction possibly lead to a fairytale ending?

EXCERPT:

Aunt Lucy flashed Charles a relieved smile. “She’s really a very nice girl, despite her rough edges. I’m sure you’ll like her.”

Charles kept his considerable doubts to himself.

“Griffin, will you ring for the footman?” Aunt Lucy asked. “He can fetch Gillian.”

“I know exactly where she is,” Griffin said, striding to the door. When he pulled it open, a woman tumbled into the room, landing on her knees.

“Confound it,” she muttered. She hopped to her feet in a swift, contained movement and flicked the skirts of her gown back in place over her slim figure. She gazed directly at Charles with big, sherry-colored eyes, apparently not the least bit embarrassed by her outrageous entrance.

“So, you’re the one who’s going to tame the savage,” she said in a crisp voice that carried the hint of an exotic accent. “What fun for both of us.”

STELLAR REVIEWS For MY FAIR PRINCESS:

“Gillian’s antics imbue her story with energy and some intrigue, but the most affecting part of Kelly’s tale is Charles’s development as he falls in love with Gillian and breaks free of complacency and propriety. This is a fun ride with a colorful, adventurous heroine and a happily disconcerted, formerly perfect hero.” ~Publishers Weekly

“When a scandal-ridden heroine meets the perfect duke, it’s a recipe for catastrophe. Throw in sparkling dialogue and attraction that sizzles and MY FAIR PRINCESS is my favorite book of 2016″ – Bronwen Evans, USA Today Bestselling Historical Author 

For The Renegade Royals Series:

“Kelly combines diverting dialogue, delightful surprises, and finely tuned pacing to make this a winner.” ~Starred review from Publishers Weekly for SECRETS FOR SEDUCING A ROYAL BODYGUARD

 “Kelly pairs a rogue of a hero with a courageous heroine. With a few returning characters, an abandoned infant, political intrigue and forgiveness, Kelly keeps her readers’ attention until the highly satisfying end to a sensual, well-plotted and wonderfully crafted love story.” ~RT Book Reviews, 4-1/2 stars on CONFESSIONS OF A ROYAL BRIDEGROOM

HOW TO MARRY A ROYAL HIGHLANDER kept me in stitches! What I found most refreshing was the unique plot, which is sometimes difficult to find with these historical romances, as the typical trope is so tried and true. However, Highlander definitely had my rapt attention.” ~Smexy Books

     The man who’d murdered her stepfather was finally in her sights.

    Unfortunately, he was still beyond her rifle’s range. Gillian Dryden breathed out a curse that would have had her grandmother boxing her ears. They would need to get much closer to the bandits before taking a shot.

     “You didn’t learn that dainty expression in the salons of Palermo’s distinguished nobles, I’ll wager,” her brother murmured. Like her own, Griffin Steele’s gaze was locked on the small cluster of men in the gorge below them.

      “Indeed not. Their language is a great deal more shocking.”

WHAT IT’S ABOUT:

Prudence Hartley has the usual single mom problems: getting her kids to school on time; juggling a gazillion errands while trying to get a full day’s work done; oh, and don’t forget about dinner.

But Pru’s problems become a tad more complicated and a lot more dangerous when she finds a dead man in her house. Or a dead spy to be exact. Suddenly, a federal agent named David Merrick shows up and whisks her and her kids into protective custody. Pru has so many questions spinning through her brain she doesn’t know where to begin. How is she going to keep her kids safe? What was the dead spy looking for in her house? Why are the spies after her? Oh, and there’s one more question . . . just a pesky, minor thing. Why does Merrick have to be so damn sexy and protective?

EXCERPT:

Maybe he was just doing his job, but Sergeant Merrick was my hero. He coordinated the paramedics, police, ambulance attendants, and an intrepid reporter who came running when three ambulances, an EMT truck from the fire department and half a dozen police cruisers congregated at the hotel. More importantly, at least to me, he calmed Hope and Boone, assuring them that their mother was fine, even if she was sitting with her head between her knees, holding a bloody towel. He got them clear of the chaos and made sure they got safely to their father’s with a police escort.

“I’ll have a uniformed officer stay with them overnight.” he assured.

Once they were away, Merrick signalled the next set of ambulance attendants to help me onto a stretcher.

“We meet again.”

I focussed on the speaker. It took me a moment, but I connected the dots. He checked on us the night before.

“Bob,” he said, in case I forgot.

I nodded. “I remember.”

“It looks like you were wrong,” he said as he helped me onto the stretcher. “Bullet wounds are catching.”

Flashing his badge, Merrick managed to get to us shortly after we arrived at the hospital. He made sure Zeke and I were kept together and stayed with us, even after repeatedly being told by the attending nurses to leave. Then, when we were alone, Merrick asked the big question. “What happened?”

I knew what he was really asking.

“Why didn’t I hide in the bathroom with Hope and Boone? You think I didn’t lock the door properly, but I put the security bar on and everything. I called you as soon as I could. What took you so long?”

I took a dive off the edge of rationality into the deep end of guilt and second-guessing. I burst into tears. I hate it when that happens.

“Give her a break, Sarge,” said Zeke, raising himself up on his good elbow. “She saved my life.”

Merrick, who had taken my outburst calmly, raised an eyebrow.

“Well,” Zeke temporised, “she intended to save my life. She couldn’t know that I had moved out of the line of fire.” He tried to sit up. “I know, I never should have been in his line of fire in the first place . . . probably should stick to the backroom stuff . . .”

In the midst of my sobbing and Zeke’s self-flagellation, Merrick told us to calm down.

Big mistake. That might have worked on Zeke. Don’t know. Wasn’t paying attention. For me, it was like waving a red cape in front of a bull. All my fear and guilt transformed into anger directed at him. I grabbed him by the shirt-front and pulled myself up with the strength that comes with hysteria.

“I’m not a cop. I’m a mother,” I shouted, hopping bare footed onto the cold floor. “I didn’t hide with my children because I figured that whoever it was, they were looking for me. If they found me, they wouldn’t go looking for my kids too. I didn’t know if you’d get there in time to stop Hope and Boone from becoming hostages and I wasn’t going to risk it. I wasn’t going to risk Zeke dying either and I would have done the same for you.”

I spoke in a rush, losing volume and air as I went, losing momentum as I realized the attention I was drawing. Not one of my shining moments.

I started to collapse. I tried to steady myself using my handhold on Merrick’s shirt. He grabbed my shoulders to brace me. He didn’t lose his cool for an instant.

“Call a nurse,” he told Zeke. “She’s bleeding.”

I gave a choke of laughter. There were at least two nurses, an orderly, and three men in uniform ranged behind Merrick.

My vision got blurry. I blinked to clear it, refocused, and noticed that Merrick was wearing red and green plaid pyjamas. I let go of his top and smoothed out the soft material.

“Flannel,” I said, and passed out.

Olympic Gold meets 5 star romance! THE GAMES by Patricia McLinn #amreading #Olympics, #romance

The-Games-by-Patricia-McLinnJust in time for the Olympics! Check out USA today bestselling author Patricia McLinn’s GOLD MEDAL contemporary romance set amidst the excitement of the Olympic Games. THE GAMES is today’s Revolving Book.
“Patricia McLinn wins gold with this sparkling romance! The Games is your ticket behind the cameras and inside the hearts of the winter Olympics.” – Carla Neggers, New York Times bestselling author

Today the world will turn its eyes — and TVs — to Rio de Janeiro and the Summer Olympics. Medals can be won, careers can be made and hearts can be lost in the 16 days of The Games, as author Patricia McLinn captures in her heart-warming, pulse-pounding romance that follows three U.S. athletes at the top — and twilight — of their competitive callings.

Tess Rutledge, once an Olympic champion figure skater, returns to the Winter Games as a coach, encountering her first love — and only heartbreak — and testing her ability to forgive. Alpine skier Kyle Armstrong has made a terrible mistake that could cost her a shot at Olympic gold as well as any hope of reconciling with the man she loves. Biathlete Rikki Lodge thinks she’s just happy to be at the Games, until she meets a hockey player who demands that she do what she’s never done before: put it all on the line.

In The Games, longtime sports journalist and best-selling novelist Patricia McLinn takes you inside the athletes village. Patricia’s award-winning books have gained fans around the world. Of her most recent releases, Booklist said: “beautifully written, richly emotional love stories that are a joy to read.”

Fate could be as cruel as people. She learned that anew in the instant she caught sight of the man staring at her. A man from another world, another time, sitting close enough now that she could see the winter night’s breeze ruffling his blond hair, his too-long-remembered blue eyes piercing into her. Andrei Chersakov.

The pride, excitement, disappointment, relationships, doubt, relief, joy and all of the pressures . . . all come to a head at the Olympic Games.” – Michael Weiss, U.S. Olympic figure skater and three-time U.S. Men’s champion
“The Games is a wonderful book! All of the characters are so dynamic, so believable. The tension of the various competitions is nerve-wracking. The romance going on behind the scenes is explosive. . . . a story you won’t be able to put down, and one you’ll not soon forget.” – RomanceJunkies.com
