One night changed them both forever. … As Zoe and Matt tussle over the best use of a billionaire’s bequest, a deeper question looms: Will one night stand in the way of their spending the rest of their days together?

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 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.

Revisit the characters you’ve come to love in The Beginning, Almost a Bride, Match Made in Wyoming,  My Heart Remembers and Jack’s Heart in this bundled duo that continues the Wyoming Wildflowers series with Where Love Lives (Book 6) and its prequel, Rodeo Nights. Wyoming Wildflowers: Box Set 3 contains moving, passionate contemporary western romances with a touch of humor that will captivate fans of RaeAnne Thayne, Barbara Freethy and Debbie Macomber. The stories revolve around the loves and lives of the good people of Knighton, Wyoming, including those who own the ranches and those in the little town who keep the health clinic, law office, diner, school and flower shop running.


Book 6, Where Love Lives

One night changed them both forever. …

Six years ago, rodeo cowboy Matt ran out on a spunky, wide-eyed student he’d just met.  Now, a chance meeting with an eccentric billionaire has delivered an inheritance that will allow Matt to do something he’s long dreamed of – caring for retired rodeo horses.

Zoe hasn’t forgotten Matt or the night he walked out on her --  and tromped on her heart. A doctor, she is back in Knighton, Wyoming, to practice medicine, sure 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.

Where Love Lives is part of The Inheritance, a 12-author project that tells how eccentric billionaire Harold Hopewell's bequests affect the life – and loves – of 12 people he chanced to meet. In Where Love Lives, Zoe and Matt tussle over the best use of Hopewell’s bequest. But a deeper question looms: Will one night stand in the way of their spending the rest of their days together?


Rodeo Nights

Before Matt became a rodeo star, you can see him in Rodeo Nights at the start of his bronco riding career, when he idolized rodeo legend Walker.

Kalli had left her bull-rider husband Walker, unable to bear her terrible fear for him. Or the fear that she might love him too much. But passion wasn't enough to overcome fear a decade ago.

Walker faces down charging bulls every day, but working with Kalli for a summer as they try to save the Wyoming rodeo that means so much to their community, just might break him.

Can the present carry them past the fears and broken trust ... to a future together again?


Readers rave about Where Love Lives (from 5-star reviews):

“Matt, strong, virile, ruggedly handsome and wary. [Zoe] distrustful, hard-working, caring and hurt. These characters’ lives are topsy-turvy due to faulty perceptions, past experiences and little belief in happy endings. With the help of friends and their openness, they move in the right directions. Great book!”

“A delight. Zoe and Matt were lovers and kindred souls years ago for one night. … Their courtship dance, which only they fail to recognize for what it is, is a pleasure to watch. How they gradually work through the hurts and assumptions of the past is real and moving. The little touches of their personalities and character refreshing. The interaction of those in the small community is absorbing. … McLinn is the real deal writer. So satisfying.”

“You will find everything here -- humor, sadness, love, anger, reading how people work through things in their lives for the better.”


Praise for the award-winning Wyoming Wildflowers stories:

“”Nothing short of heart consuming and thrilling. I've loved every one and feel like I know the people personally. I can't wait for the next installment. … Amazing and touching story. … Smart, stubborn and irresistible. … So enjoyable I couldn’t put it down. … Excellent book! I read it straight in one whole day. Recommend it to anyone!  … Delightful! … Love, love, loved them. Well written, wonderful characters with the most realistic, flowing dialog I've read in a long time.”

Book 5, Jack’s Heart

Valerie is very pregnant and very lost. Her car is jammed in a snowy Wyoming ditch when a white knight in a cowboy hat shows up. Ranch foreman Jack handles anything that needs handling with cool, quiet competence, including a baby who’s decided it’s time to come into the world.

A few years later, Valerie returns to Knighton to thank the hero who delivered her baby. Okay, maybe she’s wondered about him over the years. How could she not?

Yes, Jack can handle anything. Except this open, energetic, talkative woman and her short-stuff kid who gets under his guard. Because they demand the one thing from him that he can’t handle – love.

A New World

Affaire de Coeur contemporary author of the year finalist

Before Valerie tried to heal a cowboy in Jack’s Heart, she pushed her cousin Eleanor into the arms of Cahill in A New World.

Eleanor refuses to be charmed by the Irish balladeer she hires to strum up business for her Gloucester, Massachusetts, beach restaurant. She's far too practical for a workplace romance ... or to fall for a fantasy-spinner like Cahill. An immigrant with temporary status, Cahill wants to share his future with the strong-minded, too-serious-for-her-own-good Eleanor. But he must convince her of his staying power. And his time is running out.

Ride the River: Rodeo Knights (romantic suspense, with cameos from Wyoming Wildflowers characters)

From award-winning author Debra Clopton comes the Texas Matchmakers series—about three older women who set off a nationally advertised "Wives Wanted Campaign" to bring women to their small town of Mule Hollow to marry the lonesome cowboys. A far fetched idea that's working—look out fellas, the women are coming one car at a time!

 

Responsible for helping draw attention to Mule Hollow’s national “wives wanted” ad campaign, columnist, Molly Popp’s syndicated column is a must read across the country and hopefully her ticket to a reporting job on Times Square.


But lately she’s been featuring ex-bullfighter Bob Jacobs, reader favorite, more than he’s comfortable with and he’s just put his booted foot down firm…only turns out he’s too late to stop the featured story already coming off the presses. Suddenly Bob-hunting-women are turning up in places they shouldn’t be. And when he gets hurt saving one from a rampaging bull Molly must step in to nurse him back to health.


Bob’s not happy about the circus Molly has turned his life into and now he’s dealing with the sparks that are suddenly heating up between him and Molly, the one woman he’s determined not to fall for. Because if there is one thing his past has taught him it’s that a reporter will give up anything, even love, if the story or the byline is big enough.

She’s a working-class bride. He’s a well-to-do groom. Their botched wedding is only the start of their storybook romance.

Annette Trevetti felt like a modern-day Cinderella as she walked down the aisle towards her first love and the heir to a small fortune. But her wedding day bliss screeched to a halt when an extremely pregnant woman crashed the ceremony claiming her prince charming was the father. Devastated, Annette shakes the dust of her small town off her boots and starts a seven-year climb up the corporate ladder to claim her own fortune. But when her brother gets injured on the job, she has no choice but to return to her hometown and risk exposing the feelings she still has for the man who broke her heart.

Single dad Steve Corbett’s biggest regret is tied up with his greatest joy. When Annette returns to town seven years after she left him at the altar, his love for her hasn't changed one bit. And if his match-making daughter and their one-of-a-kind elderly relative have it their way, they’d pick the romance up right where it left off. Working alongside Annette on her brother’s construction project, Steve senses the flicker of their old flame. But he knows it will take a lot of sweat and tears to rebuild the crumbling trust for a second chance at happily ever after.

With years and heartache between them, can Annette and Steve learn to have faith in each other and rebuild a new future together?

Wedding of the Century is a contemporary romance about second chances. If you like fiery chemistry, precocious children, quirky matchmakers and emotional journeys of the heart, then you’ll love USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn’s small-town romance.

“A great read. The town of Drago has insinuated itself into my heart.” -- Vine Voice


Pretty, popular Jennifer was prom queen in small-town Drago, Illinois, the girl who had it made. That is, until her no-good ex-husband left her with a child to raise and a household deep in debt. And the family seemed somehow to blame the breakup on her. But Jennifer steeled herself to the challenge and vowed to show them all, especially her vulnerable young daughter. Who knew that a dusty old car dealership might turn out to be her saving grace.

That and Trent Stenner, her ex’s brother and a former NFL football star turned successful executive. He, too, sees value in the car lot that once had been a thriving family business. Jennifer’s goal is to sell the dealership, but Trent has another strategy. He can see the whipsmart Jennifer at the helm of the town’s vital enterprise, but he knows she’ll resist any move seen as charity. And he admires that same independent streak he sees in her athletic daughter.

Can Trent and Jennifer save the family business without losing their wallets – and hearts?

Warm Front (Winter)

He’s a country superstar; she’s a small town waitress. When the real world slams into their stolen dream, whose heart will be the one to break?


From NYT and USAToday bestselling Texas romance author Jean Brashear, a new and emotional Sweetgrass Springs story…


Jeanette Carson has been a fixture as a waitress in Ruby’s Cafe ever since high school. Walker Roundtree is country music’s brightest star, known by all for his laid-back charm and irresistible appeal to the opposite sex. Ever since his first visit to Sweetgrass Springs, there have been verbal fireworks between him and Jeanette as she proved to be the only woman immune to his charm. 


Now their paths have crossed in the outside world, and they’re seeing each other in a new light. Fireworks of a very different sort are sparking the sky—but then Walker’s world is upended by a tragedy, and the only one who steps in to help him is the very woman who swore never to put herself at his mercy. For a few days, they have only each other to rely upon, and these two lonely hearts find refuge in each other.


But all too soon, the real world demands its due, and their refuge is no longer private. The days of dreaming, the nights of yearning and hope face the harsh light of reality, and the only question is:


Whose heart will be the one to break?


An original love song, Never Forever, written and performed especially for this story by Eric Dove, is available at online music stores and in the audiobook. 


"Jean Brashear's distinctive storytelling voice instantly draws in the reader. She writes with warmth and emotional truth.” ~ #1 NY Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber
