REDEMPTION

Desperate to escape her dark past, Laurel James agrees to wed the mayor of a small east Texas town. With him, life will be quiet. Respectable. Safe. It should be everything she ever wanted.

And it is. Until Shenandoah rides back into town.

Shenandoah never thought he would find the woman he's loved and lost...and he certainly never dreamed she'd be pledged to his brother. He knows he should step aside-he has nothing to offer a woman like Laurel James-but the moment their eyes meet, Shenandoah is lost. He can only find peace in her arms...but can redemption be more than a dream for a man who has known nothing but war?

"Broday...brings strong characters and deep emotions into a very realistic Western romance that pulls no punches." -RT Book Reviews for Redemption
"Fans of classic Western tales will delight in the rough-and-tumble world Broday creates..." -RT Book Reviews for To Love a Texas Ranger

In an East Texas town called Redemption, actual redemption doesn't come easy.Laurel James has finally escaped her scandalous past to settle in the small town of Redemption, where she works in Ollie's Café and is engaged to respectable Murphy Yates. Murphy doesn't know that during the Civil War, Laurel was abducted from her family by a villain named Will Taft and sold into prostitution in St. Louis. Known there as Lavender Lil, she did what she needed to in order to survive. Yet a Confederate spy named Shenandoah promised dreams of rescue before he disappeared and left her heartbroken. Now, in 1869, the man she once knew as Shenandoah has mysteriously reappeared. In fact, he is Murphy Yates' brother, Brodie, and he holds the power to uncover Laurel's disreputable past. Brodie is opposed to the marriage, of course, but he can't say whether it's because of Laurel's deceit about her identity or his own buried feelings for the woman he left behind in St. Louis. He gives Laurel one week to break off the engagement to Murphy, with a veiled threat to expose her. Before she can come up with a plan, Murphy is shot during a bank robbery and comes dangerously close to death. Suddenly, both Brodie and Laurel feel a renewed loyalty to him, all the while embarking on an escapade to seek outlaws and knowledge of their own hearts. Author Broday's charming mix of Texas vernacular, history, and storytelling, along with her earnest characters who care about family above all, makes this an enjoyable if somewhat long romantic adventure. The chemistry and attraction between Laurel and Brodie feels authentic, and their love scenes are fun and sensual, though at times they can get bogged down with clichéd language. Great for fans of history, romance, and some good old Texas grit.
