Almost a Bride

“If you love to laugh; love to cry; or love to laugh and cry at the same time,
then you’ll definitely want to read Almost a Bride.”

Almost A Bride by Patricia McLinn


Booksellers Best Award finalist

Dave Currick was everything Matty Brennan wanted for as along as she could remember. Right up until he broke her heart six years ago. Now that she’s returned to Wyoming for good, what she wants more than anything is to save her family’s ranch. Even if that means swallowing her pride and asking Dave to marry her.

Matty’s up to something — Dave knows that much. Just as he knows that Matty needs help, so of course he’ll provide it. Doing what’s best for Matty is second nature. Even when it comes to marrying her in name only. Although he can’t resist one hot-blooded kiss after the I-dos — a kiss as fiery as the flame-red Indian Paintbrush that’s always reminded him of Matty.

Maybe — just maybe — his Matty will become more to him than Almost a Bride.
