Overview

Scheherazade had nothing on her . . .

Maggie O'Schea is fascinated by the American West. Relegated to writing obituaries for the New York Journal, she dreams of telling 1001 tales of gunslingers, outlaws and adventure.

When the orphanage where she grew up is threatened with closure, Maggie knows she must try to save it. A clipping about the famous gunslinger, Ethan King, who has holed up in the Arizona ghost town of Gila City, gives her an idea. She will tell his story and save her childhood home.

Unfortunately, Ethan has no love for the press. They ruined his father's life with their lies. Ethan is in Gila City bent on revenge and he won't let some foolish reporter stand in his way.

When Maggie refuses to leave, he locks her up and demands she tell him a story each night so that he can sleep. Alone together in a town of ghosts, the two learn about life, about death and, eventually about love.

But when the man Ethan has been waiting for arrives, everything they've dreamed of may disappear. Can Ethan's prowess with a gun and Maggie's talent with a story save their newfound dreams?

Loving a Legend is a standalone western written by New York Times Bestselling Author Lori Handeland. If you love the novels of Louis L'Amour or the westerns of Johanna Lindsey, give Loving A Legend a try!

About the Author

Lori Handeland is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author with more than 60 published works of fiction to her credit. Her novels, novellas, and short stories span genres from paranormal and urban fantasy to historical and contemporary romance and, most recently, women’s fiction. Just Once (Severn House, January 2019), her women’s fiction debut, is a richly layered novel about two women who love the same man, how their lives intertwine, and their journeys of loss, grief, sacrifice, and forgiveness.

Lori set her sight on being an author at the age of ten. She remembers sitting at a typewriter before she knew how to type, pecking out a story about a family who went into space. As an only child, her summers were spent with that typewriter, television, and, above all, books. She recalls thinking that if she could write books of her own, she would never run out of books to read. As a young adult, she got sidetracked by the need to make a living. She worked as a waitress and later enrolled in college to become a teacher.

While student teaching, Lori started reading a life-changing book, How to Write a Romance and Get It Published. Within its pages the author, Kathryn Falk, mentioned Romance Writers of America. There was a local chapter; Lori joined it, dived into learning all about the craft and business, and got busy writing a romance novel. With only five pages completed, she entered a contest where the prize was having an editor at Harlequin read her first chapter. She won.

Lori sold her first novel, a western historical romance, in 1993. In the 26 years since then, she has written eleven novels in the popular Nightcreature Novels, five installments in the Phoenix Chronicles, six works of contemporary romance about the Luchettis, a duet of Shakespeare Undead novels, and many more books. Her fiction has won critical acclaim and coveted awards, including two RITA Awards from Romance Writers of America for Best Paranormal Romance (Blue Moon) and Best Long Contemporary Category Romance (The Mommy Quest), a Romantic Times Award for Best Harlequin Superromance (A Soldier’s Quest), and a National Reader’s Choice Award for Best Paranormal (Hunter’s Moon).

Lori lives in Southern Wisconsin with her husband. In between writing and reading, she enjoys long walks with their rescue mutt, Arnold, and occasional visits from her two grown sons and perfectly adorable grandson.
