A sexy, intriguing stranger arrives unexpectedly at her Wyoming ranch, threatening the one thing Cambria protects more fiercely than her heart – her family.

Bodie’s discovery that he fathered a son 17 years ago starts a search that leads him to the warm and welcoming Weston family. But his response to one member of the family is far more than he ever expected. The sparks between him and Cambria are real … and so is the danger to his hopes for their future if she finds out why he’s really in Wyoming.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

The story is well written and the characters well developed, they have depth and some suspense to it. I loved this book and recommend it highly. I loved the character “Brodie” and the others as well.


I quite simply loved this story. Ms. McLinn has managed to create a wonderfully realistic story about the complexity of relationships, especially the relationships of the heart. If you enjoy a truly heart-warming romance, this book will not disappoint.


A great story about the twists and turns of life, about forgiveness, and letting love and kindness be the best solution to life’s problems.


I love how flawlessly McLinn writes, and her characters are always so intriguing you can’t wait to know them better! In this book, her characters face a number of topical situations with clarity, fear and self-reflection which the reader longs to help them resolve. This book is a keeper! Read it…even a second time!


From beginning to end this book was captivating. A lot of things happening in their lives but a totally good read. Can’t wait to read book two.

About The Author

I’m so proud my readers say my books blend “laughter and tears” with characters who “live and breathe.” That’s what ties together my romance and women’s fiction books as Patricia McLinn ( and now a new mystery series starting with SIGN OFF as P.A. McLinn (

I hope you’ll enjoy my 26 award-winning and best-selling romance and women’s fiction books, along with the non-fiction title WORD WATCH: A Writer’s Guide to the
Slippery, Sneaky and Otherwise Tricky.

SIGN OFF, published in August 2012 under P.A. McLinn, opens the mystery series “Caught Dead in Wyoming.” Elizabeth Margaret Danniher’s high-flying TV news reporter career crash-lands in tiny KWMT in Sherman, Wyoming after she divorced her power network exec. As she tries to find her feet in a new place and new life, she is drawn in to the case of a murdered sheriff’s deputy.

As for me, I had a great Midwestern childhood, though I did run away from home once – heading for Hollywood. Alas, Dairy Queen came before the train station, seriously depleting my capital. Otherwise I surely would have been the only Oscar-winning screenplay writer under ten.

Instead, I followed the normal education track: BA and MSJ from Northwestern. Then, not quite as normal (especially way back then), I became a sports writer. It’s great training for writing – dialogue, character, motivation, conflict, goals. (All that went into my Winter Olympic-set “gold-medal winner” THE GAMES: Medals can be won, careers can be made, hearts can be lost in the sixteen days of the Winter Olympics.) Plus, I didn’t have to get up early.

After being a sports writer for the Rockford (Ill.) Register Star and assistant sports editor at the Charlotte (N.C.) Observer, I moved to the Washington Post. That’s when I started writing novels — it all has to do with dried wallpaper paste. (For the full story, see

A couple decades editing at the Post and two-dozen books published, then I headed back to the Midwest to write full-time and enjoy the unfolding twists and turns of my own plotline.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Patricia McLinn and ENT appreciate it.
