Editorial Reviews

_ RomanceJunkies.com
"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."
_ RomanceReviewsToday
"If the aim of The Games is to give readers a vicarious Olympic experience that is lively, entertaining, and emotionally satisfying, it hit its mark dead center."
NA NA
"I delighted in the 'real world' look at some Olympic heroes. . . . Ms. McLinn's knowledge added the excitement of the Olympics to her wonderful book."
Marilyn Rondeau
"Written with invigorating, breathtaking passion, I found myself jumping up and cheering for the wins, and sobbing out loud during the defeats. . . . The sensual romance . . . will also have you cheering, sighing, and all choked up throughout this wonderfully compelling read. This is an exceptional read, a winner worthy of the gold, and one I highly recommend!"

    A really cool read

    I was holding on to my copy of Patricia McLinn's book THE GAMES to read next week while the Olympics are on. However, I glanced at the first page and couldn't stop. This is an exciting story about three athletes and their friends/loves. By the end, I was so hooked I hoped every one of them would win a gold medal. I also learned a lot about the Olympics, the events and scoring. Fascinating stuff. You'll love this book anytime you read it.
