Overview

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 he even dream of second chances at love, when they should have no chance at all.

Author Biography

From being a sports writer to editing at the Washington Post to becoming a USA Today bestselling author, Patricia McLinn follows her heart. She writes what she loves to read, and is delighted and humbled when readers love it, too.

One of the things she loves is writing about Wyoming. Cowboys, quirky ranch towns, humorous characters, and spectacular landscapes – what’s not to like? She returns every chance she gets – including visiting through her popular contemporary western romance bundles (Wyoming Wildflowers, A Place Called Home, and Bardville, Wyoming), her western historical romances, and her mystery series “Caught Dead in Wyoming.”

Readers praise her books for memorable and believable characters, as well as touches of humor added to romance, women’s fiction, and mystery.

Patricia’s newest releases are the romantic comedy THE CHRISTMAS PRINCESS, the fourth book in The Wedding Series (set in Chicago and Washington, D.C – because she’s not always writing westerns), and JACK’S HEART, the fifth story in the Wyoming Wildflowers contemporary western romance collection.
