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?

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.


Thanks to author Linda Broday and Lone Star Book Blog Tours for providing this opportunity to review To Marry a Texas Outlaw. I received the novel free in exchange for my honest review.



Praise for To Marry a Texas Outlaw:

“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

“Whew! What a story! Good thing Linda Broday didn’t struggle to find words for her story the same way I’m attempting to find words to express just how much I love not only this book, but this entire series as a whole. To Marry a Texas Outlaw is a thrilling conclusion to a delightful and much-loved story of the Legend family that delivered so many emotions.” Michelle, Goodreads Reviewer

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.

    Hi, Chapter Break! Thanks for having me and your kind words about the book makes me smile. I’m glad you liked Luke and Josie. They were a great couple, in fact, one of the best ones I’ve written. I think readers will enjoy riding along as they try to figure out life and claim their love. I start a brand new series that I think will release this time next year. It’s actually a spin-off of this one as Luke and Josie form a mail order bride service. It’s called Texas Outlaw Legends.

      Thanks for the great books, Linda! And I loved the set up at the end for the new series. I’m looking forward to reading that as well!
