About this ebook

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

4 star Review Match Made in Wyoming (Wyoming Wildflowers #2) by Patricia McLinn Audio Review: Both author Patricia McLinn and narrator Julia Motyka are new to me. Although the second book in the series it can be read/listened to as a stand alone. I enjoyed the story and felt that Julia Motyka did a great job in her narration. . A sweet and entertaining story that captured my attention and kept me invested. I really loved the interactions of Cal and Taylor with the rescue dog Sin, it made for some heart warming moments throughout the book. Can Taylor break through the walls that Cal has built around him, or is he destined to be alone?

I loved this book about how different people can come together and fall in love. Life challenges to deal with the overcoming of resentment and distrust, hardships happen to everyone but the courage to accept and move on is the greatest you will receive in any relationship is the love that is given freely without anything but the love you have to give to that person.
