“Linda Broday’s heroes step right out of her books and into your heart.” —JODI THOMAS, New York Times bestselling author

A Former Texas Ranger on a missionA determined woman slowly losing her sightA love neither could have predicted…and a danger that may steal their happy ending before it can even begin.

Glory Day may be losing her vision, but that doesn’t mean she’ll ever stop fighting. Determined to provide for her struggling family, she confronts an outlaw with a price on his head. But when a mysterious cowboy gets between her and her target, Glory accidentally shoots him instead. Flustered, she has no option but to take the handsome stranger home to treat his wounds.

Former Texas Ranger Luke McClain didn’t plan to fall in love, but there’s no denying the strength of Glory’s will or the sweetness of her heart. But Glory’s been burned before, and Luke will have to reach into the depths of his own battered soul to convince her to take a chance…

And trust that love is worth fighting for.


“One riot, one Ranger” that is how the saying goes. But in “The Cowboy Who Came Calling” written by Linda Broday, the second title to her latest series “Texas Heroes” published under Sourcebooks Casablanca (February 6, 2018). We come to learn that even a Ranger needs assistance now again.

Luke McClain from an early age, knew what and who he wanted to be. A Texas Ranger, a person who brought the lawless to justice. But with one ambush, those dreams were torn in two. Now, he must find the person responsible to clear his name.

Along, the way he runs into Glory Day a young woman who struggles to support her mother and two younger sisters when her father was accused of robbing a bank, caught and sent to prison.

She knows that there will come a day when she would be unable to help the one she loves like she use to. However, she must march on, especially, if she wants to save the homeland before she loses her vision. To do this,  she must first track down and bring a dangerous criminal to justice…ALIVE.

I loved how Linda Broday built the characters, by the third chapter it was like you knew these characters for years. The courage and strength that Glory demonstrated were inspiring. Luke though on the run, found the time to do what he does best, help when help was needed, even at the risk sometimes of his own life. This story had some wonderful secondary characters as well, you couldn’t help but fall in love with them.

The wonderful moments between Luke and Glory was done superbly. Inserted at the correct moment throughout the story, which kept the book in a nice rhythm.

The Cowboy Who Came Calling an inspirational tale of strength and courage in the old west. How nothing is insurmountable when you have love of family standing by your side.

Linda Broday



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 and blog there every third Tuesday of the month. You can also find me at 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.
