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.

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 could not put this book down. Along with a great love story the author entertains us with the history of the old West which I found very interesting.

A lot of *I kiss you* I will never kiss you again*I kiss you*I will never kiss you again!*I make love to you*That will never happen again*I make love to you*That will never happen again!* until it does and it does and it does and she ends up pregnant. At that point, he decides it's time for him to leave for an unspecified amount of time or forever because he doesn't want to ruin her life, not knowing he's going to be a daddy because who knew all that not-having-sex could result in a baby! Then he returns and the whole *I will*I will not* cycle starts with *I will NOT love you* which, of course the poor dunce does. He takes the strong, silent type beyond belief.
I would have enjoyed the story a lot more without all that back & forth "suspenseful" will he/won't he? - and if the descriptions of their sexual encounters weren't so poetic and flowery. It's sex, not the dawning of a new creation.
Oh yeah, at one point, he "sent his eyes to her!" Wonder if that was by FedEx or UPS??? Hope he got a receipt!

In the author's defense, I seem to be overly critical when it comes to westerns. That I was able to finish this one was good for me. There was something missing that I can't quite put my finger on. The plot held me, but seemed a bit thin in places. The characters were likable but somewhat contradictory. If you love western romances, you'll likely enjoy this title. If you're really into historical romances, this may not be what you seek.
