“Patricia McLinn wins gold with this sparkling romance! The Games is your ticket behind the cameras and inside the hearts of the winter Olympics.” – Carla Neggers, New York Times bestselling author
Today the world will turn its eyes -- and TVs -- to Rio de Janeiro and the Summer Olympics. Medals can be won, careers can be made and hearts can be lost in the 16 days of The Games, as author Patricia McLinn captures in her heart-warming, pulse-pounding romance that follows three U.S. athletes at the top -- and twilight -- of their competitive callings.
Tess Rutledge, once an Olympic champion figure skater, returns to the Winter Games as a coach, encountering her first love — and only heartbreak — and testing her ability to forgive. Alpine skier Kyle Armstrong has made a terrible mistake that could cost her a shot at Olympic gold as well as any hope of reconciling with the man she loves. Biathlete Rikki Lodge thinks she’s just happy to be at the Games, until she meets a hockey player who demands that she do what she’s never done before: put it all on the line.
In The Games, longtime sports journalist and best-selling novelist Patricia McLinn takes you inside the athletes village. Patricia’s award-winning books have gained fans around the world. Of her most recent releases, Booklist said: “beautifully written, richly emotional love stories that are a joy to read.”
Fate could be as cruel as people. She learned that anew in the instant she caught sight of the man staring at her. A man from another world, another time, sitting close enough now that she could see the winter night’s breeze ruffling his blond hair, his too-long-remembered blue eyes piercing into her.
