More About the Author

I write because people heal. And those are the people who fascinate me.

They heal from pinpricks and catastrophes. They heal seamlessly or with scars, hidden or visible. They heal in as many ways as there are things to heal from, then multiplied by the number of individuals there are in this world.

As a journalist, I witnessed moments of "injury" and frequently found myself asking "How does someone get past that?" - whether "that" was pinprick or catastrophe. That question is also at the heart of my stories. What my characters are healing from frequently falls into the realm of wounds most of us carry. That makes the healing no less fascinating and no less admirable than if a character has troubles few of us will ever encounter. (I am piling on with one character right now, and it's starting to make me feel a little guilty.)

I find people often heal from doses of humor, honesty, and being pushed into situations they've been trying to avoid. Since few people will push themselves into situations they've been avoiding (wg), the characters need friends, family, and community willing to push. So my stories have a lot of those elements.
That's why I'm most pleased that my readers say my books blend "laughter and tears" with characters who "live and breathe." I don't have the most focused writing career - contemporary romance, mystery, women's fiction, historical romance, nonfiction - but those elements unite my 30+ titles.

Some say my stories have happy endings. I like to think of each story as being the process of the main characters getting themselves to a point where they can have a happy beginning. Because they've done a lot of healing.

If you enjoy stories about characters learning, growing, and healing, with some humor, sometimes some mystery, and frequently romance, I hope you'll try my books.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Patricia McLinn tells a great story, and WIDOW WOMAN, set in the 1880s Wyoming Territory, is a prime example of her considerable talents. The passion between Rachel, the widow woman determined to save her ranch, and Nick, the loner cowhand with dreams of his own, is incredibly powerful. McLinn's mastery of the perfect phrase and her ability to evoke the senses and emotions brings the country and its people alive and makes the reader fall in love with them. A wonderful book and a DARN GOOD read.

This is a wonderful story about two very different people who are drawn together: Nick, a tough Texas cowboy; and Rachel, who's is determined to to keep her ranch against all odds. Although there are good and logical reasons why Nick and Rachel should avoid each other, the chemistry between them is just too strong. Their relationship, along with a tender secondary romance and the harsh beauty of the land surrounding them, make this an unforgetable read.

The story of our Widow Woman Rachel and her true love Nick Dusqat is swift moving and power packed. Strong as the ranch she runs, Rachel has been widowed once when she meets Nick. Her husband was a cruel man, and Nick understands cruelty. His father and brother-in-law were both cruel men. That cruelty has scarred him emotionally.

Rachel ends up a widow twice before she finally gets to keep Nick for herself. In between she tries to keep her ranch going by marrying yet another man she does not love. She and her son and her ranch survive through the worst winter in history, at the cost of the horses she has bred for years and loves so dearly.

The other love story is that of Nicks sister Alba and her beau Davis. Alba shows up late in the book. Davis has been learning and growing under Nick's tutelage since the beginning. Their story is much sweeter than Rachel and Nick's, but just as moving.

The characters are so real you come to know them personally. It's a book you won't want to end.

A great story, wonderful characters and plenty of action! Sometimes I felt as though I were watching a movie and other times I felt like I'd landed right in the middle of ranch! If you enjoy Western Historical Romance...or just Cowboys...you'll truly enjoy this read.

Loved it! This book was a breath of fresh air after a long dry spell of choosing books with pitiful writing, little or no evidence of editing, and boring plot lines. You will enjoy this book if you like descriptive writing, interesting plots, romance, and proper editing. Buy it.

I loved it!!! The story line from the beginning was hot. I could not stop reading. I was up late into the night, I didn't want to stop reading. I have read nearly every one of her books. Any not read are on my list.

I can't say enough about this book. It grabs you from start to finish. A total keeper. Nick and Rachel's story has a lot of chemistry but bc of nicks past he is slow to admit he loves her. He wants her but she wants true love this time. Can he risk it all for love, please read.

This book was very well written. Story was very believable, and characters had true to the era issues. Really liked the added story of hero's sister added as a background development within the main storyline characters. This book had backbone and loved the true to life problems of life in the cold weather in this area of th west. Will read more of this author's books. /Stephanie
