A Ranger. A Cowboy. An Outlaw.
Men of Legend

The Texas Ranger
Gravely injured on the trail of a notorious criminal, Texas Ranger Sam Legend boards a train bound for his family ranch to recuperate…only to find himself locked in battle to save a desperate woman on the run. Determined to rescue the beautiful Sierra, Sam recruits an unlikely ally. But can he trust the mysterious gunslinger to fight at his side?

Sam is shocked to discover his new ally is not only an outlaw, but his half-brother. Torn between loyalty to his job and love of his family, Sam goes reeling straight into Sierra’s arms. Yet just as the walls around his battered heart begin to crumble, Sierra is stolen away. Sam will risk anything to save her-his life, his badge, his very soul-knowing that some bonds are stronger than the law…and some legends were born to be told.

To Love a Texas Ranger is the first book in Linda Broday’s Men of Legend series about a band of siblings and the ladies who will soon come to love them.

I don’t know whether my Kindle or life was attempting to disclose something to me. Each time I attempt to pick this book to start it, either my Kindle was dead or only had two bars left or life sets in.

Either way, making sure that the Kindle fully charged and the outside world was left outside. I made sure that nothing interferes with me starting and completing To Love a Texas Ranger.
I attempted to get into the romantic tale of Sam & Sierra, yet for reasons unknown, they wouldn’t let me. Both were just too damaged. I ended up instructing them to get over it. I was trusting that some place, amid the course, of the 448 pages that they would resigned themselves.

In any case, I found something to like about this book. For example, I found that it was bound for me to have perused Houston’s book. I enjoyed Houston’s character or what little foundation that we saw in the brief timeframe. I also need for it to be November as of yesterday. Yes, I am wishing my summer away before it even arrives to make sure I could buy a book and read about a fictional character that I come to love. The woman who comes to love Luke will have her hands full.
This story was alright not awesome like the second book. But, by reading this series out of order. I came to realize that these books could be read out of order of publication. By no means will you find yourself missing anything regarding to storyline. However, by reading this story I learned something that I never thought I wanted to know…the birthing order of the three Legend siblings.

Biography

I’m a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author and make my living writing western historical romance. I am truly fortunate to live in the Texas Panhandle on land where the American Indian and Comancheros once roamed. I’m inspired every single day. I’ve always been fascinated with cowboys and the American West way of life because to me these men and women embody the spirit and strength I want in my characters. My desire to keep history alive is what drives me. Also, these pesky characters in my head that refuse to go away! I can’t imagine writing anything else. My wish is to touch a reader’s heart in some way and have them coming back for more. If I can do that, I’ll have succeeded.

I’m a regular contributor at http://www.PetticoatsandPistols.com and blog there every third Tuesday of the month. You can also find me at http://www.casablancaauthors.blogspot.com. I think it’s important to promote western historical romance any way I can and that’s what I strive to do.

My Best to each of you! May you always find a book that takes you on an unforgettable adventure.

Three Brothers. One Oath.
No Compromises.
The MEN of LEGEND


The Cowboy

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. She never expected to fall in love with her own husband—or any man—after the heartache she’s endured. Yet when her 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.

With one bullet this story began. Houston Legend was looking forward to getting married. Cut, of a finger and blood, is flowing, something bad will happen. Houston Legend didn’t believe in any of that. This was a joyous occasion for him and nothing and he means absolutely nothing will spoiling that for him, not even a shallow cut, of a finger.
The groom is ready the music starts to play. The woman of his dream is walking down the aisle. He’s not nervous. One brother is beside him where is the other. He looks up there he is. He turns, he smiles at his soon to be wife. A shot is heard his bride goes down, his life is changed, forever.
With that one instance, Houston swore he wouldn’t love again. Until he founds that his father put the Lone Star Ranch up for collateral in a poker game. Now he stands before a priest swearing to love and cherish a woman that he’s never met, a woman he learns that was attached a born a child from that atrocious day.
Lara Boone wants nothing more than a name for her baby. She never hoped that any man would except her baby as his own. She never thought she would grow to love the man that she calls husband.
When I read the synopsis of The Heart of a Texas Cowboy, the plotline sounded good and since it has been awhile that I even picked up a cowboy romance. I thought I give it a try. Well, this book surprised even me how good it was.
Normally when the action takes place at the beginning of the story it seems very hard for some authors to maintain that flow of excitement throughout the book. However, Linda Broday seems to have no problem. The Heart of a Texas Cowboy was actioned packed throughout the entire book. The characters grew on me, especially the younger brother Henry. I just knew that something bad was going to happen to him. I am not going to tell you if something did or not that is your mystery that you must solve.
The romance between Houston and Lara was beautifully written and progressed naturally. What I loved about this book was Houston he was attentive and very protective of his little family. Even when Lara past came knocking Houston was there to answer the door.
Since I didn’t get the chance to read Sam’s book I just should. If his book was anything like this book, must catch up with the Legends before Luke’s book comes out. Now, that book is the one I will be anxiously waiting to read. If what I’ve read in this book, Luke is one dangerous hombre.

The Heart of a Texas Cowboy comes out May 1, 2017. Thanks for stopping by to read this review. Leave a comment if you want to know anything more about this book, before its debut.
