TO MARRY A TEXAS OUTLAW BY LINDA BRODAY


Genre: Western / Historical / Romance
Date of Publication: November 7, 2017
Pages: 384


Synopsis: 

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

Top Ten List: 

My Top Ten List of Movies
By Linda Broday

When I want to relax and forget everything, I go to the movies. There’s something about sitting in a dark theater, watching the magic on the screen as the story unfolds and totally losing myself. And I also watch TV movies when I can’t get to the theater. The story medium doesn’t make too much difference—as long as it’s satisfying. I do require a happy ending.

Here are my top ten movies:

The Longest Ride – In this movie, a bull rider falls I love with college girl and he has to decide which he wants more. This is adapted from the book by Nicolas Sparks. Oh man, I love this movie so much I bought it. It stars Scott Eastwood and Britt Robertson. Can never watch enough.

Hidden Figures – This movie is about a group of black mathematicians who work for NASA and provide vital help on the space program. Such a really good movie with Octavia Spencer and Janelle MonĂ¡e.

To Kill a Mockingbird – Another adaptation from a book, this time by Harper Lee. It examines racial injustice in the old South and is one of Gregory Peck’s finest performances.

Lonesome Dove – A western adapted from the book by Larry McMurtry.  I can’t tell you how many I’ve watched this. I’m a huge Robert Duvall and Tommy Lee Jones fan.

The Cowboys – A western starring John Wayne. When he can find no men to hire for drovers on a cattle drive, he hires a group of boys. I always cry in this movie. Those boys are so little and scared, but they saddle up and leave their home and parents behind. One of the best.

Unforgiven – This stars Clint Eastwood, an aging gunslinger who tries to fight injustice in a small town. I loved his need to help a soiled dove whose face was horribly slashed by a mean customer. He was ready to die to avenge her.

I Saw the Light – A movie of the life of Hank Williams. Tom Hiddleston does a magnificent job portraying this country music icon. It brings back memories when I was a little girl and sneaking into my grandpa’s room and listening to this song on his old radio.

Desperado – This western stars Alex McArthur who plays Duell McCall, a drifter who’s quick with a gun. I think he made six of these TV movies. I named my character Duel McClain who’s in Knight on the Texas Plains after Duell McCall. Loved him!

Open Range – A western with Kevin Costner and Robert Duvall.  They fight against a corrupt sheriff and a cattle baron who try to control the land. These two are great together.

Beauty and the Beast – A timeless classic with great songs. This 2017 rerelease was exceptional with Emma Watson. She is indeed a beautiful lady.

Sadly, there are lots more that I didn’t have room to list. The common denominator of the these is that they all tell wonderful stories. I can’t wait to see what comes next. Maybe you’ll check some out. And my Men of Legend series.


About the Author: 
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.
