Far Hills Ranch has bound together the Susland family for nearly a century and a half. For just as long, there’s been a legend that the ranch and its family are cursed. Now, says the legend, the current generation is the last with a chance to break the curse. 

A stranger rescues her, then disappears when she needs him most... Until he knocks on her door, years later and half a world away...

On assignment in distant Santa Estella, hardheaded journalist Kendra Jenner finds herself in the middle of a vicious hurricane . . . and unexpectedly in the arms of a stranger who speaks virtually no English. Fear leads to passion that months later leads to a baby, which Kendra fully expects to raise on her own, since her search for the father is a fruitless one. Three years later, "Paulo" shows up at her Wyoming home, identifying himself as Daniel Delligati. He says he's come for his son -- and for her.

Can they have a second chance at love ... when they never had a first chance?

“A beautifully crafted story revolving around two of the most determined characters you'll ever meet, both of whom want only what is right, and best, for the little boy conceived out of what was perhaps only a desperate affirmation of life in a life-threatening situation ... or perhaps the beginning of a love that runs deeper than fear and self-doubt and recriminations. Daniel is a hero to die for, at once vulnerable and courageous, gentle, and iron-willed. ... A thoroughly enjoyable read."" -- From 5* review by Karen Templeton

"...bursting with wonderful Patricia McLinn romantic touches -- powerful characters, strong interplay and fiery moments". --Romantic Times

    By Skiplayer1
    I loved the story and the characters. There’s a lot of pain holding the characters back from true love. In the end everything works out for a happy couple.

    This review is of Lost and Found Groom by Patricia McLinn. Note: this review contains spoilers! For all of you who have read reviews of this book where the reviewer slammed the heroine Kendra, this review is not like that! I loved this book and Kendra and thought she was fully justified in her actions. And the author did a fantastic job laying everything out. Daniel lied to Kendra about everything from the beginning and when she tried to find him, and even talked to him in one of his other personas, he would not let himself be found. So no, he has no rights and the birth certificate reads “father unknown.” And when he makes an appearance, he is still going behind her back and lying to her. Lies of omission are still lies. I don’t blame her one bit for not trusting him! With that said, this was a wonderful book full of love and trust. Daniel had to go through so much to figure out how to open up, determine what is truly important, and trust and love others. Kendra had already gone through the process, so she could see the changes in Daniel. I hope you love this book as much as I did and stand by Kendra as she protects her son.
  • Enjoyed thoroughly
