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.

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 fiancée’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. Agent: Gail Fortune, Talbot Fortune Agency. (May)

The Heart Of A Texas Cowboy was not the book I was expecting to read, it was so much better than what I ever thought it would be. You start the story with a huge bang and it only gets better from there. All it takes is one bullet to ruin cowboy Houston Legend's heart, until he gets thrown into a marriage with a young girl with a baby. Lara Boone wasn't looking for love, just a name for her baby after the very troubled past she had to endure. It takes a simple cattle drive for Lara's past to catch up to them and for the both of them to finally discover what they have been missing in their lives. The way this story ended was so perfect for everything that had happened in this story. I never read any of Linda Broday's books before but after reading this 2nd part in the Men Of Legend series, I so want to go read more books by her now. She has this way of writing that makes you feel that you are in the story, feeling every emotion that the characters have. If you are into romance with that old west story-lines, you need to read this series and books by Linda Broday!! Thank You to Linda Broday for writing a great book in this series that turned me into a fan of yours from this day on!! I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book from Lone Star Book Blog Tours!

'The Heart of a Texas Cowboy' by Linda Broday is book Two in the "Men of Legend" series. This is the story of Houston and Lara. I have not yet read the previous book so for me this was a standalone book. Houston was set to marry his childhood sweetheart but in a shot of a bullet that changed. Which that changed came the knowledge that he didn't know the women he was marring after all. Now almost a year later his father gets into a gambling debt that only Houston can get him out of. The debt... to marry a women he has never met and giver her child a name. Lara's father is trying to help Lara give her child a name and has arranged a marriage to Houston in exchange to forgive his father's debt. Lara was brutally raped and hurt about a year ago and is looking only to give her child hope for a future. But when Houston and Lara meet at the alter it appears that there might be more to what will be happening to them than just giving Lara's child a name. *A Book Obsessed Chicks Review Team Selection*
