One look, a passionate love . . . and then they part . . . Forever?

A Christmas season story to fall in love with these holidays.

Before the bestselling and award-winning Wyoming Wildflowers series, there was another love story, one that laid the foundation for all those that came after.

A love at first sight ... Ed Currick's and Donna Roberts' worlds couldn't have been any more different - a rancher from Wyoming and an up-and-coming Broadway musical actress on a national tour meeting by chance in Denver. What could have been a momentary encounter sparks desire . . . and more. But can there be anything but heartbreak ahead when they have only days before their dreams pull them apart?

Readers say of Wyoming Wildflowers: The Beginning:

"Funny, entertaining, and full of surprises" ... "Warms your heart" ... "Joy" ... "Wonderful love story"

This would have been a good story...tired of the language, too much sex!
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
A 120 page free story and beginning of series of a chance meeting between an actress on tour and a Montana rancher in Denver before Christmas. Some obtuse and conversational language with holes/skips in plot of story. Quite a few sex scenes later on. An easy romance read with happiness and stress because of conflicting lifestyles. Three additional excerpts for next in series also provided.

The storylines are all catching and I wasn’t able to stop reading, wanting to find out what happens next. I will be looking for more from Patricia McLinn in the future. The story had all of the characteristics that I like to discover when finding a good book to read: • One or more HOT alpha males • Hot chemistry between heroine/hero • Good story line • Wonderful backup characters • Family • Drama • Romance

Lovely Beginning Ed is in Denver for a stock show. Donna is part of a traveling theatre group. They are each other in the hotel lobby. That moment changed both their lives for the better. Now they get know each and find a way to be together. He's from Wyoming and she has dreams of Broadway.

Loved the charactors and love of ranch life.

Are your dreams what you think they are? I love this book and have downloaded the next in the series ‘Almost A Bride’ which is also currently free at present. Donna and Ed are fantastic, they are both characters who are easy to like and fall for, both got fire when needed and both are stunned and brought to their knees by their attraction. But can they find a middle ground, somewhere where they will both be happy or are they destined to just have days together? As a free download I wasn’t expecting anything amazing from this book, but it was a real treat and a lovely surprise, so glad I tried it.
