Three Brothers. One Oath.

No Compromises.
The MEN of LEGEND
 
One bullet is all it takes to shatter Houston Legend’s world. He swore he’d never love again, but with the future of the Lone Star Ranch on the line, he finds himself at the altar promising to love and cherish a woman he’s never met—a woman whose vulnerable beauty touches his heart.
All Lara Boone wants is a name for her baby. The best she can hope for is kindness and acceptance. She never expected to fall in love with her own husband—or any man—after the heartache she’s endured.
In an effort to save the Lone Star Ranch, Houston decides to drive two thousand longhorns up the Great Western Trail to Dodge City. The day before he leaves, the cook quits. When he can’t find another on such short notice, Lara offers to go along and fill in. Over his best judgement, he lets her. Three days out, he notices riders trailing them. Things go from bad to worse and it’s an all-out fight to try to save themselves and the herd.
And when Lara’s troubled past catches up with them, Houston will move heaven and earth to protect his bride…and discover depths to a marriage of convenience neither realized could be theirs to claim.
I will admit, I am an easy sell when it come to a hot cowboy on the cover….I mean, come on, did you SEE this cover!?!? I was like GIMME, GIMME, GIMME!!

The book starts off with a bang, literally. I don’t know why I wasn’t expecting it especially with that foreshadowing at the beginning but I wasn’t and I was unsure about how we could go up after such a tragic down. Thankfully Linda is a pro and took this tragedy and makes it up with an action packed adventure and the swooniest, sweetest romance ever. Two broken people, brought together by necessity, find protection and companionship in each other. As the story progresses, they gradually fall hopelessly and helplessly in love. It was really a wonderful read.

“This compassionate, poignant marriage-of-convenience love story demonstrates Broday’s ability to bring a wide range of emotions to her characters in a fast-paced plotline without losing a bit of the powerful love story. Add this to your Western romance collection!” ~~Romantic Times

Linda Broday, Historical Western Romance Author
I’m a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of 8 full length historical western romance novels, with another set to release 2017, and 10 short stories. Watching TV westerns during my youth fed my love of cowboys and the old West and they still do. I reside in the Texas Panhandle on land the American Indian and Comancheros once roamed. At times, I can feel their ghosts lurking around every corner. Texas’ rich history is one reason I set all my stories here. I love research and looking for little known tidbits to add realism to my stories. When I’m not writing, I collect old coins and I confess to being a rock hound. I’ve been accused (and quite unfairly I might add) of making a nuisance of myself at museums, libraries, and historical places. I’m also a movie buff and love sitting in a dark theater, watching the magic on the screen. As long as I’m confessing…chocolate is my best friend. It just soothes my soul.

  1. Hi Margie……..Thank you for the making me feel so welcome and for taking Houston Legend and Lara Boone into your heart. They truly had an amazing love story to tell. I have to say that I used up a lot of Kleenex while writing this. But I also laughed. There are so many funny moments with baby Gracie and Henry and the rest of the Boone brothers.

    Readers might like to know that Book #3 of this series – To Marry a Texas Outlaw – will follow this November. The outlaw brother reveals a multitude of secrets.

    Thanks again for having me and for this wonderful, heartfelt review.

    Wow, what a fantastic book review and I agree with Margie all the way. You started us out with a bang and it just kept delivering. Your talent amazes me Linda Broday.
