Hunted by lawmen, those seeking the bounty, and other outlaws hoping to become famous for killing him, Luke Weston survives by little more than his wits. He expects the bullet that will end his life to come any day. He’s cheated death too often.

Over the last two years, Luke has been working to right his wrongs and claim his birthright. Only one thing stands in the way of atonement—the murder of a federal judge. Only he didn’t do that. Armed with nothing more than the alias Ned Sweeney, Luke searches for the man who framed him. He’s only an hour away from catching him when he spies a woman bound and gagged in the middle of the prairie.

She looks dead but her eyes fly open at the sound of his footsteps. Worse, he discovers she has amnesia. He can’t just leave her so he tamps down his frustration over missing Sweeney again and loads her into a nearby wagon that bears all the markings of his family’s ranch.

In the weeks of trying to help the woman he calls Rose learn her identity, Luke finds himself falling in love with her. She’s sweet and funny and makes him dream of impossible things. Then they meet a boy and learn her name is Josie.
As her lost memories tumble back, Luke faces his greatest fear. Can he make Josie his wife before he loses everything?

Praise for To Marry a Texas Outlaw:

“A gunslinger who’s better than he thinks he is; a lovely amnesiac; a young, wannabe gunslinger; an abused boy; a scruffy dog; and a sadistic killer make the third book in Broday’s outstanding family saga an unforgettable journey through the Old West.” -- Booklist Starred Review

“This is one author that knows how to tie you in knots keeping you on the edge and making your smile through it all. She gives you death and heartbreak as the west is known for with plot that pulls you in. I couldn’t put this down and had to know what was going to happen next.” -- Cyn’s Reviews

“This densely plotted historical continues Broday’s tradition of well-realized, emotionally rich novels.” -- Publisher’s Weekly

“Broday’s gritty depiction of the Texas frontier will strike a chord in the hearts of fans who long for proud, rugged cowboys and strong-willed women.” -- Romantic Times 4 Stars

“Whew! What a story! Good thing Linda Broday didn't struggle to find words for her story the same way I'm attempting to find words to express just how much I love not only this book, but this entire series as a whole. To Marry a Texas Outlaw is a thrilling conclusion to a delightful and much-loved story of the Legend family that delivered so many emotions.” Michelle, Goodreads Reviewer

“There is one guarantee, with a Linda Broday book, you're going to experience a true heartwarming-Broday story with so much action that it's impossible to put down. With her books you are always in for the ride of your life.” -- Tonya Lucas, Goodreads Reviewer

I’ve often heard it said that you can’t judge a book by its cover. Sometimes, that’s true … sometimes, not. When the gorgeous cover of To Marry a Texas Outlaw by Linda Broday popped up in my email for review sign-ups, I was immediately enamored. And like Katniss Everdeen, I raised my hand shouted, “I volunteer!” After all, who can resist a ruggedly handsome Texas outlaw framed by the fiery sky of a setting sun?

I know I can't!

The copy I received for review is an ARC, so I’m not sure how the finished product will look and feel. But I can attest, after stroking this bad boy, it feels good balanced in your hands. That sounds a bit naughty, doesn’t it? Well, I can confirm there are one or two naughty love scenes between the gorgeous covers of this romantic western. And that’s all I’ll say about that, thank you very much!

*Fans Self* Ahem…what was I saying again?

Oh, yes. I wanted to tell you what endeared me to this book right off the bat. I don’t know about you, but I love reading the Dedication and Acknowledgements pages of every book I read. Broday writes a lovely dedication for this book. “I dedicate this book to all the forgotten and abused children in the world who have no voice, no one to stand up for them, and no voice…” I simply adored that. As a mama, Broday’s dedication warmed my heart.

The fact is, I really enjoyed Broday’s voice and writing style. I found her writing to be engaging, her world building enthralling, and the storyline of this book quite entertaining. It seems to me that the yucky fall and winter months are the perfect time to pick up a copy of this book and give it a good read. After all, there’s nothing like Spring time in Texas.

And that’s the very season in which we meet the MC, Luke Weston, the gorgeous Texas outlaw bad boy who happens across a damsel in distress while on his way to deliver vengeance to the person who’s caused him a whole peck of trouble. Talk about getting sidetracked!
Ah, well, I’ll leave the rest of the story for you to discover yourself. Y’all know how much I hate to give spoilers. Besides, this here romantic western deserves to be caressed lovingly with your peepers, yo!

Broday spins a yarn, and then uses it to knit a romance that will leave you unraveled!
Go grab a copy! Grab one for your friend, too. ‘Cause you’re gonna wanna discuss this one when you’re done!

And so, I hereby grant
by Linda Broday

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. Thank you so much for having me, Books and Broomsticks! And a huge hug for your kind words about my story. I poured out my heart in this book and I think it shows. I hope anyway. Luke and Josie were polar opposites but that's what makes for an entertaining story. He needed someone to make him laugh and Josie does that.

    I'm glad my dedication touched you. I have a real soft spot in my heart for abused and neglected children and animals. All they want is a bit of kindness yet often received a cold hand. I love them all and wish I could take them in my arms.

    Thanks again for the 4 Broomsticks! I love it.
