Overview

To Marry a Texas Outlaw by Linda Broday

"Linda Broday's heroes step right out of her books and into your heart." —JODI THOMAS, New York Times bestselling author

An outlaw intent on clearing his name,
A frightened woman determined to remember her past,
A threat neither can survive alone...
Welcome back to LEGEND country.

Outlaw Luke Weston survives by his wits. On the run for a murder he didn't commit, the last thing he needs is to go looking for more trouble. But when Luke stumbles across a fiercely beautiful woman struggling against two heavily armed men, it's obvious that trouble has found him.

After all, he never could resist a damsel in distress.

Josie Morgan's distressed, all right—and hopping mad. She has no idea why she's been kidnapped...or who she is...or why her body melts for the mysterious gunslinger who saved her life. But as the lost memories come tumbling back together, Josie is faced with the stark reality of why she and Luke can never be...even as her heart is telling her she will always be his.

To Marry A Texas Outlaw is a satisfying conclusion to Linda Broday's Men Of Legend trilogy. Luke 'Weston' is an outlaw who has lived on the wrong side of the law most of his life. He is the oldest son of rancher Stoker Legend, a father and family he knew nothing about until his mother told him on her deathbed. At his core he is a man of principle and honor. He has worked on paying back what he has stolen over the years and often steps in to defend those who can not defend themselves. Framed for the murder of a judge, he has spent the past few years trying to find the real murderer and clear his name. Until that happens, he refuses to claim his name, his heritage, and the family that has accepted him. On the trail of a good lead to the man he seeks for the murder of the judge, he comes across a wagon in the middle of nowhere and a woman gagged and tied nearby. What follows is a rollercoaster ride of a story with murderers, questionable friends, detours, personal and family crises. In 'Rose,' the woman he finds tied near the wagon, he has found a good match. She is anything but a soft spoken lady and definitely not a quiet, cooperative woman. Her language and take no prisoners attitude take a bit of getting used to. While the main plot threads of this series are tied up nicely, the door is open for future spin-off books. The ladies of Deliverance Canyon have deserved to have their stories told since they first appeared in the series. They briefly make an appearance in this book in testament to Luke and the good he has done. A conversation between Luke and some outlaw friends at the end of this book hint at a future for these ladies. It would be a book or series I would like to read. This was a good book to sit and read on bitter winter days. I have been trying to find the time to read this book for quite a while. Too bad it took a bout of the flu to make it possible. This has been an enjoyable book. It gives you a good feel for Texas of the late1870's. The depiction of the people and who they are at the core is well done and shows how careful one needed to be back then. So much depended on the trust you put in friends and the manipulations of those around you. Reading this series will be an enjoyable way to pass long winter days and nights.

Endings are inevitable! And with the last title of Men of Legend, it’s also hard to say goodbye. Not too many series in the genre of Western Romance, we as readers get so engross with characters that they feel like family. But, when I turned the last page on To Love a Texas Ranger, I was determined to find out more about these mysterious men. About the time I completed the 2nd book The Heart of a Texas Cowboy, I couldn’t get enough, I was addicted to their stories. However, one brother stood out more than the others…. Luke Weston. He was a mystery that I wanted to learn about. What made him tick? What made him become the man he was? And so many other questions, that if I had to list them all, I might have to write a book myself. Well in the last installment to Linda Broday’s Men of Legend series “To Marry a Texas Outlaw”. All those burning questions were finally answered. We learn that Luke’s Weston life was certainly no bed of roses growing up, even though his mother tried. But with one act of cruelty against the one person that he counted on most. Outlaw Luke Weston life was set in stone. He survived life by his wits. He was also, determined to find the person reasonable for having a bounty placed on his head for murder. So, certainly, he wasn’t out looking for love or having the responsibility of taking care of someone else. Especially one Josie Morgan. The Men of Legend series started off with one gravely injured Texas Ranger and ending the series with one man finding justice and finally a home to hang up his guns. Whether or not it’s for good would be determined by Linda Broday or the children of the Men of Legend. I was a huge fan of a television show “Castle” and a speech was spoken by one of the characters. “There is a universal truth we all have to face, whether we want to or not, everything eventually ends!” ....

To Marry a Texas Outlaw is a page-turning, sexy, historical romance. Most importantly, it is a joy to read. Our heroine Josie is a real spitfire. From the moment we meet her, she’s cussing up a storm and fighting for her survival. Having been knocked on the head, she has no memory of who she is or why she is in trouble. That doesn’t stop her from fighting for what she wants. I find that her strength of character really shines throughout the novel. She’s fierce, loyal, and brave. She plays poker, shoots guns, and rescues kittens. She is willing to put her life in danger for those she around her, with little concern for her own safety. Ms. Broday has created quite the heroine in Josie; one I could easily spend time with. Luke is technically an outlaw, running from the law and any man willing to call him out for the reward. But truthfully, to me, and Josie as well, he’s more of a hero than an outlaw. He calls himself a killer, but he’s really serving his own brand of justice. He defends and saves women and children, writing wrongs along the way. In the previous books, he looks at his family from the outside; in this book, he finally becomes a part of the family he longs for. He also has a great horse, Major John, who happens to have an affinity for beer. The horse manages to get loose and drink multiple barrels full of beer. The scene with Luke retrieving Major John from the saloon is quite hilarious to the town members, as well as this reader! Josie and Luke make a well-balanced team. She helps him realize the importance of family and what he should be striving for. He helps her laugh more and find a supportive family. Sparks fly between these two right away. This is exactly the kind of couple I like to read about in novels. They are both strong, individual, characters, who can disagree, support, and then grow to love each other. I enjoyed revisiting the characters from the second book in the series. I always love reading updates on characters from previous books in the series. The Legend family and the Lone Star ranch are no exception. To Marry a Texas Outlaw is a great conclusion to the stories of the Legend family with happily ever afters all around. Well-written, with great characters and a believable romance, To Marry a Texas Outlaw is worth the read as a stand alone, or as the conclusion to a great series.

I've been looking forward to Luke's story since we met him in book 1 of the series. I really loved Josie and Luke together. I think Broday did a great job of balancing out their personalities. You would definitely need a strong personality to go up against the hardened Luke Weston and Josie was just the girl for the task. Josie saw the man that Luke was and not the man that he thought he was which was what he needed to be able to move on in life and with his family. Broday ended the story with what I hope ends up being a teaser for upcoming books in the series or for a new spinoff series. Whatever she ends up doing, I know that I look forward to reading it.

To Marry a Texas Outlaw by Linda Broday is the 3rd book in her Men of Legend series. This book reads very well as a standalone, though it is best to read the earlier books to learn more about this wonderful family and the Legend men. When I read my first book (Texas Plains) by Broday, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed that book, since I usually do not read westerns. Now having loved To Marry a Texas Outlaw, I will be reading anything by Linda Broday, as she writes beautiful heartwarming stories, with wonderful characters. In To Marry a Texas Outlaw, Luke Weston, our hero, is on the run, as he is trying to clear himself from a murder charge, which he did not commit. Luke is also known as a famous gunslinger, and is always looking over his shoulder at those trying to kill him. When he comes across a wagon, he sees a woman tied up and two men hurting her. He comes to her rescue. Josie Morgan, our heroine, at first thinks Luke is one of the men who kidnapped her, but she learns quickly that he was rescuing her. When Luke tries to get information from her, she cannot remember anything, including her name; something which will be revealed in a short time. As Luke takes her to friends for protection, they both begin to feel an attraction to each other. Josie is determined to find out who she is and why was she kidnapped? She also learns about Luke, and believes in his innocence. But both of them have issues that would stop them from acting on their feelings; Josie worries she might have done something bad, and Luke wouldn’t accept her. Luke already feels his life is too dangerous for Josie or his family to be part of. Two tough and determined people, who are falling in love….will they find a way to stay together. What follows is an exhilarating and exciting adventure that will bring Luke’s family (Stoker (father), his brothers, Sam, Houston and their wives) into a large part of the story, at the Lone Star ranch. They all try to convince Luke that he is part of the family no matter what, and they want to help him. He is stubborn, determined to leave and keep them safe. Josie & Luke will also bring to the family a young boy and his dog, who they saved from a abusive uncle, and he too will become part of the Legend household. The last half of the book has them all fighting against hired gunslingers to save the father, and in turn save Luke. Josie was a strong and tough heroine, who was able to rise above her kidnapping and memory loss and step fully into the battle to help them. She will also open Luke’s heart to a possible future of love and family. This was such a heartwarming and emotional story that has us unable to put the book down, and a fantastic ending. Very well done by Broday. What follows is a unique and wonderful story of two people, one on the run and the other having lost her memory, who will find love for each other . I loved when they got to the family ranch, and Luke’s family was great. I can’t say enough how much I enjoyed this heart wrenching story, and the wonderful characters Linda Broday has created. If you enjoy heartwarming western romance adventures, wonderful couples and families; I strongly suggest you read Linda Broday’s books.

I really enjoyed this romance. I just discovered Linda Broday a few months ago when I read Knight on the Texas Plains and knew I wanted read more of her writing so I jumped on the chance to read this book. This is the third book in the Men of Legend series and I was a bit concerned going in since I have not read the earlier books. I had nothing to worry about and can assure readers that this book works well as a stand alone. I am so glad that I decided to read this wonderful little story. This book opens with a bang. Luke finds a woman tied up and her captors flee. He has very important business to take care of but he just can't leave her. She is covered in blood and has no memory of who she is and what has happened. Luke is a wanted man and it seems that the woman he rescued may be in the same situation. Luke and Josie were wonderful characters. Luke may be a wanted man but he was always thinking about how his actions affected others in his life. He really was a very caring man. Josie doesn't remember anything about her life but it was obvious what kind of person she was right away. She was very strong and I was eager to find out more about her. I thought that Luke and Josie were wonderful together. They seemed to really compliment each other and were always able to be open with each other. The chemistry between them was intense from the very beginning of the book and only got stronger as I continued to read. There was a lot going on in this book. I had a great time learning more about how Luke became an outlaw and how Josie ended up in the situation she was in at the start of the book. Add in a little drama with a child they run into who happens to know Josie and some problems at the ranch and you have a really exciting story. There was never a boring moment in this book. I would recommend this book to fans of western historical romances. I had so much fun reading this one and am really excited to go back and read the earlier books in the series. Linda Broday has created a wonderful family of characters in this delightful series. I received an advance reader edition of this book from Sourcebooks Casablanca via NetGalley.

To Marry A Texas Outlaw is the third and final book in the Men Of Legend series! You know a story is gonna be good when you have this handsome outlaw by the name of Luke Weston, discovering a bloody woman, with no sense of who she is -- and that happens in just the first few pages of this book! You soon realize that the bloody woman is Josie Morgan, and she is wanted for the murder of a man. But look out; nothing is what it seems. As Josie slowly starts to regain her memory and with Luke falling hard for her, you start to get the sense that something bad is gonna happen. But, you won't be prepared for what will happen in the end. It's those last few chapters that will get your heart racing as you see what's going down, but I can promise you that the ending will perfectly wrap-up everything that has happened over the past three books and will leave a tear in your eye! I have grown to love Linda Broday's books over the course of this year, and if you're like me, this one will make you love them even more! I have read only the second book in the series (The Heart of a Texas Cowboy) and this third book, so now I must go back to read the first book (To Love a Texas Ranger) to get the completely know what has happened to this family. The only thing that bothered me about this book and series is this: why hasn't there been a movie made from it yet? Seriously, it needs to be made into a movie or even a tv series just to see everything play out on the big screen! Thank you to Linda Broday for writing the most perfect ending to this great series, and I so can't wait to see what is coming next! I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book from Lone Star Book Blog Tours!

To Marry a Texas Outlaw will resonate with me for a while. It was the best book I've read in months and I'd be happy if this my last book of the year.  To Marry a Texas Outlaw could have gone any direction when it literally starts with the blank slate of a memory loss. I was nervous that it would be like so many others that I've read before, but it was not. The author included the memory loss as another element to the story and didn't create it as the sole pivot point. She introduced so many interesting little facets that created turmoil, angst, and mystery. The dimension of this story is captivating. The background elements that were slowly introduced that took methodical steps forward throughout till they were all forefront and fitting together perfectly by the end. I enjoyed that you got a glimpse into Luke's internal dialogue and knew how hard it was for him to open up to this idea of being loved and belonging to a family, then to see him slowly melt under his father and siblings persistent display of affection throughout the book. The family element was heartwarming. Also, the relationship forged between Luke and this mystery woman was not solely sexual tension, but humor and heart which was beautiful. It was a real bond that I could relate to and fall in love with. The frisky back and forth banter and the defiance and apprehension that all relationships hold.

My Thoughts Luke Weston is a man torn by thoughts of his past, worry for his present and fear for his future. A hunted outlaw since he was barely out of his teens the man’s gruff exterior hides a heart that yearns for a better life, a life filled with love of a strong woman like his mother, a family of his own and most of all the acceptance and love of the family he grew up wishing to be a part of but never thought he stood a chance to do so. Josie Morgan is a woman without a past, she cannot remember her own name until a lucky circumstance changes that for her. She was found by Luke tied up and bloody then the pair My favorite quote/thoughts were at the end of the book and hope they remain in the final copy when released, “In Texas, some Legends were made, some were born, and some were created by destiny. This was the way of things. This was his legacy. This was the mighty Lone Star Ranch. As a huge fan of Historical Western Romance this book was a pleasure to read and it’s characters enjoyable representations of the indomitable human spirit it took to survive what was still wild territory in late 1870’s Texas. Despite having not read the first two books in the series feel this third installment was an excellent stand-alone as it focused on Luke and his personal growth and eventual acceptance that there were plenty of people who needed him and loved him so he could learn to love himself. It was a great look into just what it took for a bad man to see the good in himself that others already saw. Though of course at this point a lot of the back story for Luke and the rest of the Legend men remains a mystery to me. [EArc from Netgalley]
