“Linda Broday’s heroes step right out of her books and into your heart.” —JODI THOMAS, New York Times bestselling author
He married her to keep his ranch, but she just might save his heart in this emotional historical western romance from queen of the genre, USA Today bestseller Linda Broday.
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.
Three Brothers. One Oath. No Compromises.
Men of Legend:
To Love a Texas Ranger
The Heart of a Texas Cowboy
To Marry a Texas Outlaw
Broday returns to the tough but tender men of Texas's Lone Star Ranch in her thrilling second Men of Legend 19th-century western (after To Love a Texas Ranger). Houston Legend shuts himself off from love after his fianc e's death exposes how she deceived him. Then his father loses some land in a poker game, and to get it back, he arranges for Houston to marry Lara Boone, the daughter of his poker rival. Lara was assaulted by the villainous Yuma Blackstone, who left her scarred and pregnant; Houston honorably gives her child the Legend name. Newly wed, Lara and Houston set out on a cattle drive across unforgiving and dangerous land, and soon discover that Yuma is stalking them. When he starts killing off Houston's men, the Legends seek the help of friendly Cherokees, a polygamist family, a libidinous young couple, and others as they rush toward safety. Broday brilliantly captures Lara and Houston's hesitations and growing love. At times it's hard to reconcile Houston's extreme gentleness toward his wife and daughter with his furious rage at Yuma, but the combination makes him a very desirable hero. The exciting plot, rich setting, and superb writing will delight fans of historical romances.
