A Princess? No Way

Katie Davis 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 University. If she considers the biggest perk of the job being around assistant basketball coach Brad Spencer, that also makes her ordinary, because what woman wouldn’t feel that way? So these people coming around saying she could be the long-missing 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. 

The Surprise Princess, Book 6 of USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn's The Wedding Series, is a moving, passionate contemporary romance that will captivate fans of Bella Andre, Susan Mallery and Sarah Wilson. 


You'll meet a young Brad Spencer in Hoops, the prequel to The Surprise Princess.that tells the story of Ashton University basketball coach C.J. Draper and academic adviser Carolyn Trent.


Revisit the characters you’ve come to love in Prelude to a Wedding, Wedding Party, Grady’s Wedding and The Christmas Princess. In fact, you’re invited to join Katie and Brad in helping celebrate the wedding of April and Hunter (The Christmas Princess).

Everything can change … except murder.

In the television production world, a body brace is used to shift the weight of the camera to the operator's shoulder. This allows for smoother shots and reduces stress and tiredness. And, at the small-town Wyoming TV station KWMT, cameras are older and bulkier than those used in network news-gathering. Almost as old as some of the equipment used in a historical re-creation that draws Elizabeth and friends into another investigation. When there’s rumbling underfoot, a body brace helps keep what’s important in focus.

Body Brace, Book 10 of the Caught Dead in Wyoming series, is a smart, surprising, fast-paced cozy mystery with humor. If you like quirky characters, hints of romance and twists you won’t see coming, then you’ll love USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn’s page-turner.

"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

"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:

 “McLinn's mysteries set in Wyoming are addictive. The writing is excellent, the twists and turns keep the brain engaged, and Elizabeth's wry commentary keeps a smile on my face.”

 “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."

“There's a real love for wide-open spaces in McLinn's writing, and it's a pleasure to visit the world she so beautifully creates. Can't wait for the next book(s)!”

 “McLinn has created in E.M. a female protagonist who is flawed but likable, never silly or cartoonish, and definitely not made of cardboard.”

Ho Ho Uh-Oh! Can They Make the Best of an Accidental Noel?

This wasn’t the Christmas either Kiernan or Bexley expected. Snowbound in a shoddy convenience store with the least hospitable storekeeper in the state of Wyoming, two other stranded travelers, four kids forgotten by Santa – oh, yes, and each other.

Because there was that thing that happened last summer. A mistake. They both thought that… though for different reasons.  And agreeing it was a mistake didn’t make it any more comfortable to run into each other at the ranch of their mutual friends, the Curricks of the Slash-C Ranch. Especially when those same friends suggest, nudge, and push them into traveling East together to join their respective families for Christmas by spending eighteen hours in a car together.

Except they never made it out of Wyoming, thanks to an early-arriving blizzard.

And now their choice is to have one of the least festive Christmases on record or work with what they have and each other to make this a real Christmas for those kids … and maybe discover what Santa has in mind for them.

Making Christmas, another installment in USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn's Wyoming Wildflowers series, is a fun, feel-good, moving contemporary romance that will captivate fans of RaeAnne Thayne, Barbara Freethy and Debbie Macomber. Fans of the Wyoming Wildflowers series came to know Kiernan, younger brother of A New World’s Cahill, in A Cowboy Wedding – and even had a hand in determining the young Irishman’s romantic future. And for more holiday cheer, read the love-at-first-sight story that planted the wildflower seeds in Wyoming Wildflowers: The Beginning.

Readers’ raves of A Cowboy Wedding (from 5-star reviews):

“Wyoming Wildflowers series is full of joy, sadness, letting go, coming together, love, and the true meaning of family.”

“Even if you never read the other books you'll love this one. … Great read; love all these characters like family!”

“Love the story! Ms. McLinn continues to impress me with her creativity and characters!”
