The Games


Medals can be won, careers can be made and hearts can be lost in the sixteen days of the Winter Olympics.

Tess Rutledge, once an Olympic champion figure skater, returns to the 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 Winter Olympics. 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.”
