The free spirit.
The best man.
The last bachelor.
The free spirit: Paul Monroe 
Charming Paul Monroe has the Peter Pan thing down pat. As an antique toy appraiser, even his work involves play. Which is fine, unless your job is to keep his Chicago business running smoothly . . . and all that charm -- and sexiness -- is aimed at you. 
Organization and reliability are Bette Wharton's hallmarks. She handles the toughest clients with aplomb, until Paul provides a challenge that goes way beyond the office. She has a plan and a timetable. How can she let herself fall for Mr. Live-for-the-Moment when all he offers is Love-for-the-Moment?
The best man: Michael Dickinson
Michael Dickinson is delighted to be best man at his friend's wedding - but there's one complication. Tris Donlin is a bridesmaid. He's wanted her for longer than he cares to remember, but to her, he's just good old Michael - college pal, confidant, best buddy ... Would a few days of wedding celebration let him finally get her out of his system once and for all?
Her cousin Paul's wedding party has Tris's head and heart full of memories of college days with him, Michael and their friend Grady. Grady was her college crush and Michael was her buddy. Now that they're all grown up, my how things have changed.
She's certain she's found the best man for her . . . if only she can convince him.
The last bachelor: Grady Roberts
Grady Roberts has never been the marrying kind -- and he still isn't. But after watching his best friends walk down the aisle and start families, flipping through his little black book and ordering take-out for one suddenly seems boring ...and lonely. Yet the one woman who intrigues him keeps him at arm's length.
Leslie Craig is human. She feels the full effect of handsome, intelligent, wealthy, successful Grady's attraction . . . and his loneliness. It's the last element that snags her heart. She's developed a knack for helping people with problems and sorrows without ever revealing her own. Can she do that for Grady?
Or, if he discovers the truth, will he hurt her so deeply she'll never recover?

He grew up a cowboy. He became a prince. But he was the most unforgettable man she's ever known. THE FORGOTTEN PRINCE by @PatriciaMcLinn #amreading #newrelease #romance #western

the-forgotten-princeToday's Revolving Book is #NEW RELEASE  - THE FORGOTTEN PRINCE:
They Have a History — Can It Be Rewritten?

Prince Karl longs to once more be plain Karl Wethers, Wyoming rancher. Instead, his  sense of responsibility, nurtured as a cowboy and honed in the U.S. Army, won’t let him turn his back on King Jozef of Bariavak. But he has a plan. If he can pull it off.

Then international media consultant Harmon Reed re-enters his life. The Army brat who liked to juggle lit sticks of dynamite is now a woman who could explode that dynamite in his face. He’s fully occupied with trying to keep her from knowing anything about the complications of his royal life, because he will never trust her again, despite the pull of a love long gone.

For Harmon, what started as a youthful summer fling ignited into a love that shook her to her core. Equally smitten, Karl saw something beyond her beauty and rebellious streak. Then Harmon broke it off – and broke Karl’s heart. They went their separate ways, but no matter how far apart they traveled, the embers of first love remained. And the slim hope of a second chance floated in the periphery.

He's tough. He's a loner. His life is all about ranching. She's a socialite. She's soft. She's the new owner. NOT A FAMILY MAN by Patricia McLinn #cowboy #western #romance #amreading

nafm_ebook_NOT A FAMILY MAN is a 5-STAR MUST READ!
"I have never read a book by this author that I didn't love and want to read again. This story pits a crusty cowboy against a socialite who has escaped a stifling marriage and wants a better life for her children. The story pleases on all levels. The characters grow, change, explore and finally recognize the rightness of their choices. Highly recommend!" - Amazon 5-Star review

“… Well-fleshed-out characters, true-to-life adventure and sensuous love scenes. This is the kind of book you read more than once just for the nice, warm feeling it leaves with you.” — Rendezvous

— Rendezvous

“I’ve become a huge Patricia McLinn fan.”
— 5-Star review

With one exception, the rooms Jenny glimpsed as their ragged procession trailed Tucker Gates’ long strides were clear of all extraneous decoration. In fact they were lifeless. Sheets covered large shapes that could be a sofa, a chair, a dining-room table, but in the dim light they resembled huge, wily beasts — or an overcrowded graveyard with blank headstones. The drapes were closed, the walls bare.

With no offer of help with their luggage from either Tucker Gates or Deaver Smith, they’d each grabbed the overnight case Jenny had insisted they carry on-board “in case.”

She’d been thinking along the lines of lost luggage, not a sojourn in the Addams Family mansion.

NOT A FAMILY MAN
Not a Family Man, the story of Wyoming ranch foreman Tucker Gates and the new owner for the Double Bar X, divorcee Jenny Peters, is the prequel to The Forgotten Prince, the upcoming Book 7 in USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn's acclaimed Wedding Series.

Tucker was skeptical of Jenny's city-bred fairy-tale views of life – and love – in the West. But she wasn’t going to let him scare her away from the new life she wanted to build for herself and her kids. No matter that he could be as hard as the mountains around them. No matter that Jenny found totally unexpected comfort from his rough strength.

But what next? Because Tucker Gates was a lot of things, but he was absolutely clear that he was not a family man.

Patricia McLinn's THE CHRISTMAS PRINCESS is an "utter delight". #amreading #weddings #romance

the-christmas-princessTHE CHRISTMAS PRINCESS  is a USA Today Must-Read romance!
In its “Recommended Romance” column, USA Today says:
“McLinn writes a delightful, romantic tale with The Christmas Princess, which holds all the coziness of the holiday spirit. The Wedding Series continues with April and Hunter and the unusual assignment — pretending to be a princess — that stands between them. While the request may seem straightforward and doable, especially from Hunter’s perspective, the exercise of turning April into this fantasy ignites emotions and feelings that can render him speechless.
"McLinn is an expert at revealing the layers enveloping her characters. With each reveal, sometimes exquisitely subtle, we are pulled in deeper to be active participants in the emotionally charged, yet heart-melting romance. This is Happy Holidays with a grateful sigh.”

THE CHRISTMAS PRINCESS
In Book 5 of USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn's Wedding Series, the stories shift from Chicago to Washington, D.C., and wrap in a little royalty, beginning with the enchanting "The Christmas Princess."

Christmas isn’t looking so jolly for April Gareaux. Her job is uninspiring, her engagement is off, and she has nowhere to live. Yes, her family would take her in, especially Leslie and Grady Roberts and their friends who have become her extended family. But it’s time she stops relying on them. Then comes an extraordinary offer – spend the holidays in Washington with King Jozef of Bariavak as his possible long-lost granddaughter. Even more extraordinary is the man behind the offer and the one who will be beside her through the coming weeks, Hunter Pierce.

Determination and grit have moved Hunter beyond his past in Bariavak. Yet, here it is standing in front of him again, refusing to be ignored. … Just like his reactions to April. How can he fight what he’s feeling when they’re together all the time?

King Jozef has known tragedy in his life. Now comes this lovely young woman bringing joy to his holidays. How can he resist dabbling in some royal matchmaking? 

A vibration started at the base of April's skull and zinged down her spine. “You’ve been watching me.”
Hunter's eyelids lowered and rose once. That was it. One blink. Otherwise, he could have been a lump of granite — albeit a nicely shaped lump.
