    This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in 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 This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in 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.

With her books you are always in for the ride of your life. The Men Of Legend series just continues to satisfy the love of a great saga we all crave. Luke Weston is a wanted man, a hunted outlaw, with a huge price on his head. Josie Morgan after being attacked, tied to a tree, and being unconscious, has no memory of who she is or who she belongs too. Why is she covered in someone else's blood? Is she a murderer and a wanted Outlaw, as her abductors claim? If not for Luke riding up when he did, her time here on Texas soil was about to expire. Can these two lost souls find answers, freedom, and happiness? Or are they destined to live life on the run? Stoker, Houston and Sam Legend want nothing more than for the oldest Legend brother to come home and claim what's rightfully his, the Legend name and his stake in the Lone Star Ranch, but some dreams just might never happen, when you're a wanted Outlaw! Linda Broday has written an exceptional book filled with adventure, gunslinging action, and her trademark heart-gripping ending. This book will have you holding your breath, drying your eyes, while experiencing the true meaning of family. Very few can pull off this genre, but Linda Broday is phenomenal in accomplishing it. So get ready for the conclusion of this exceptional series: Three Brothers. One Oath. No Compromises. The Men Of Legend.

    For some reason I both liked it, and had a hard time focusing at what I read. SO to be honest, did I think it was good or ok? I have no idea. But I fear I will have to go with just ok then.

    This review was originally posted on Addicted To Romance To Marry A Texas Outlaw is a beautiful well written story from a new favorite author of mine. Historical westerns are a bit of a forgotten art, and I love that Linda Broday has brightened up this sub genre in romance and the way she writes these cowboys and ranchers and bad boys of sorts are sexy as all get out.

So what This review was originally posted on Addicted To Romance To Marry A Texas Outlaw is a beautiful well written story from a new favorite author of mine. Historical westerns are a bit of a forgotten art, and I love that Linda Broday has brightened up this sub genre in romance and the way she writes these cowboys and ranchers and bad boys of sorts are sexy as all get out. Now I will say that I do wish I had started with book one and I have no idea why I didn't. *banging head against the wall*. So what is this story about may you ask? well let me tell you the basics. This book features the third brother, who is an outlaw and running from the law. However our hero was framed for a crime that he didn't commit and is on the hunt for the man who can clear him so he can return home.  But when he starts to close in, he stumbles across an injured woman who has lost her memories and is covered with blood. Luke is not the type of man to abandon a woman in need. She doesn't have any idea who she is, and obviously she has suffered a recent trauma. So as they go in search of clues to find out her past and see if anything triggers her memory, they stumble across a young boy and his dog that are on the run from his abusive uncle. Luke is overwhelmed because he is now responsible for a woman and boy who are in danger and his time is running out. I can't say how much I adored this book, it was simply exciting and full of adventure and these road trip adventure romances rock and Linda Broday is one of those authors that are so talented at it. I love the way that this plot develops from the beginning of seeing the hero find the heroine, and then discover a young boy that has been abused and seeing him just grow in healing and become a smart and funny little boy. And the animals.....if you like dogs and cats...this book is definitely for you. Because they were just the cherry on top for this book. A grown up dog and a kitten do NOT get along hehe so seeing them introduced and boy what chaos they create just adds a lighter side to a more serious sided plot of the story. the family that we are introduced to here with his father and his two brothers was so addictive. I just couldn't get enough of this sweet family. I love how even though Luke is the "loner" type, his father and brothers are so protective and never give up on him. We see the way that Luke looks at himself. He was born as a bastard, and so he doesn't consider himself a true member of the family. However what was a plus, was seeing how his family doesn't feel that way. They treat him normally and would sacrifice their own lives for him and I love seeing that family loyalty. The romance that builds between Luke and Josie was engaging and I wanted more of these two. I think what I love is how right they are for each other. Josie isn't a passive heroine. She is progressive, and is smart even though she has lost her memory, she is devoted to Luke and is working her way to convince Luke to give them a chance. Because Luke is so focused on his current condition, of being in danger from the law and doesn't want to risk giving Josie more because he doesn't want her to have to mourn him. So we see a bit of a test of wills between the two and seeing the growth emotionally in their relationship. Now I will say what was unique, was that they have sex earlier on in the book which is rare for a HR western and then the later half of the story the focus is more on the emotional intimacy and the climax of the plot and so much suspense and danger and I was on the edge of my seat, it was simply mind blowing picking up this book and falling so in love with these easy to love characters. Overall....this western sexy romance is thrilling, edgy, endearing and packed of elements that come together in a spendid mix of romance and passion!! [foogallery id="45896"]

And in the process of driving his family crazy with "I can do it myself" stubbornness he picks up a woman who's lost her memory, a kid, a dog and a kitten. And a whole herd of trouble hounding his heels. I liked Luke and Josie. They're both a little wild. They're both a little stubborn. And dangerous in their own ways. Luke's done some questionable things in his days but mostly with good reason so it was hard not to like him. And hurt for him over the fact he didn't feel he was good enough for anyone--to be a part of his family or a part of someone's future. And Josie. The girl's got grit. She'd been kidnapped and lost her memory but didn't fall totally to pieces. Nope. She bucked it up and went full force into figuring things out. I liked them together, too. It's more of a slow burn but it's sweet seeing them fall and mending each others hurt bits. Bits of humor and romance woven into their uphill battle as they tried to avoid the law-- yup, they're both wanted-- and figure out who she really was There were a couple consistency issues but they weren't too bad. All in all, I'm enjoying Broday. The books are a little slower paced even with danger and action twined into the storyline but I like that. It suits the couple, their journey and time.

    After adoring Heart of a Texas Cowboy and getting introduced to the three Legend brothers and their world, I absolutely had to have the final brother's story. Luke needed justice and a good woman. And ah, yes, Ms. Broday provided his perfect match and quite the adventure for the pair of them. To Marry a Texas Outlaw is the third of the Men of Legend series. It builds on what came before with Sam and Houston's stories, but I think it would work alright as a standalone if necessary. Luke is the ille After adoring Heart of a Texas Cowboy and getting introduced to the three Legend brothers and their world, I absolutely had to have the final brother's story. Luke needed justice and a good woman. And ah, yes, Ms. Broday provided his perfect match and quite the adventure for the pair of them. To Marry a Texas Outlaw is the third of the Men of Legend series. It builds on what came before with Sam and Houston's stories, but I think it would work alright as a standalone if necessary. Luke is the illegitimate outlaw Legend brother who has dedicated his life to tracking down the real murderer of the judge so he can get his life back. He dreams of that life being with his family on the Legend ranch and accepted as one of them, but fear, guilt, and a lack of worth eat at him. Bursting onto the scene in glorious technicolor in Luke's life is a woman who may be in just as trouble as Luke. The lady has lost her memories, but it looks like she might have killed a man and is on the run while needing to get answers. Toss in an abused boy and a starving dog and Luke's life just got a whole lot more interesting. Luke tends to be rather an Eeyore through this book and I had the urge to kick him in the seat of the pants to get over it many times- and Josie, the woman who fiercely wants him if he would just take what she's offering, practically does. Good for Josie! But to be fair, Luke has to come to terms with his past and his past choices. Its tougher to accept the good and believe you can have it and deserve it when you've had a life like he did. The romance was a firecracker style with a gun-toting, cussing, hot tempered Josie paired with an introspective, slow-burn, capable Luke. She riles him up and he tempers her impulsiveness. But the sizzle was there and loved seeing them together whether scrapping, loving, or fighting side by side. The action was good and I loved the mystery element as Luke was pursuing a killer who framed him and they were trying to figure out the mystery of Josie's past, hope she's innocent, and help her get her memories back all while the law and some other evil outlaws are on their trail. I loved that their trail eventually led back to Luke's family. I get a bit swoony when the Legend men are all together and fighting for a cause. I'm not sure if this was the last of the series. It felt like it to me. But yes, it was the perfect story to cap it off. Luke's was the story I wanted most and it totally lived up to expectation. In summary, this was a strong, fiery, and exciting historical western by a writer who makes Texas history come alive with romance and adventure. I can definitely recommend the series to western romance lovers. My thanks to Sourcebooks Casablanca for providing the book in exchange of an honest review.

"The Outlaw", Luke Weston, may be the fastest draw in Texas but he also has a huge heart. True he's shot and killed many men but he has also helped many people. He only sees himself as a ruthless outlaw with not much of a future and thinks it's just a matter of time for someone else to get the draw on him. He pushes everyone away not wanting his past to tarnish their lives. Stoker, Houston and Sam Legend see the good in Luke and want him to take his birthright, the Legend name and his right to his share of 'The Lone Star' ranch. Trouble has a way of finding Luke, he's a wanted man and has a price on his head. Framed for a murder he didn't commit of a Federal Judge. He's been on the run for two years looking for the man that can clear his name. He grabs odd jobs here and there trying to repay all the people he robbed over the years. Luke stumbles across a beautiful lady, unconscious and tied to a tree being held by two armed robbers. Josie Morgan awakes not knowing who she is, where she's from, whose blood is all over her and why she's being held captive. Is she married? Have children? Is she an outlaw herself? Will she ever know the answers to all her questions? As the sparks fly between them, Luke reminds Josie, and himself, over and over all the reasons why they could never be together. Will Luke be able to clear his name, accept the love and his legacy of being a Legend or will his past catch up to him and he come across an outlaw with a faster draw? Will Josie ever remember her past and get all the answers to her questions? Can she help clear Luke's name and make him see that he does deserve love and his legacy or will he push her away for ever or die from a bullet? "The Outlaw" will draw you in in the first pages and keep you needing to know more with all its twists, turns and suspense. A must read that will leave you wanting to know more about the Legend men, their family and The Lone Star ranch. I didn't want it to end.

    The atmosphere is somber. Both Luke and Josie are under a death sentence whether guilty or not. Luke finds Josie near death. He needs to ride on but conscience won’t let him leave her. Luke is a Legend and he will live up to the name even though he continues to reject it for himself. Thus, the start of the third book in the Legend Series by Linda Broday. I have loved the other two books, but this one has to be the best of the series. How does a woman fall in love with and then show a Texas Outlaw The atmosphere is somber. Both Luke and Josie are under a death sentence whether guilty or not. Luke finds Josie near death. He needs to ride on but conscience won’t let him leave her. Luke is a Legend and he will live up to the name even though he continues to reject it for himself. Thus, the start of the third book in the Legend Series by Linda Broday. I have loved the other two books, but this one has to be the best of the series. How does a woman fall in love with and then show a Texas Outlaw that it is okay to love and then okay to love her? Josie is a one of a kind woman and the only kind that can convince Luke Weston, aka Rafael Montoya, aka Luke or better Rafael Legend that living and loving are the right choices. But how is she to convince Luke to hang up his guns, to give in to the love for his father and his brothers. Luke knows what loneliness of the soul feels like and does not feel he deserves any better even though he is one of the most caring men that ever walked the earth. He feels he has dishonored his family, both sides. He must pay his retribution before he can claim what is rightfully his. But Luke must learn what real family is all about and what the love of a woman can do to a wounded heart. And lest you think it is all in the pages of the book, you won’t want to miss the ending. What a surprise awaits you. This is one of the most heart rending books I have ever read. I have cried and laughed and could not put it down. This is one of those books I will never forget reading. Linda Broday knows how to write and she has used every one of her talents in this book, “To Marry a Texas Outlaw.” It is the book that you hold close after you finish reading and just let the emotions wash over you and just feel.

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. 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 in exchange for honest review]

    To Marry a Texas Outlaw is the third book in the Men of Legend series and is set in Texas during the year 1879. Outlaw Luke Weston had been running from the law for years and was finally one step closer to finding the varmint who framed him for a murder that he had never committed.

Outlaw Luke Weston had been running from the law for years and was finally one step closer to finding the varmint who framed him for a murder that he had never committed. That was over two years ago and Luke had been on a mission ever since, he was going to clear his name before he accepted his true identity of Luke Legend. Luke did not want to bring all of his problems to his father’s doorstep and he knew if he publicly associated with his family and claimed them as such that would be exactly what happened. He was committed to solving his own problems by himself because he was a man with pride. One problem that he never expected to find in such a pretty little package was Josie Morgan. When Luke came across Josie she was unconscious and tied up. What was an outlaw to do? Well Luke was an outlaw with honor and he soon realized that things were worse for the unconscious Josie than they first appeared. Not only did he have to scare off the men who had tied her up in the first place but when she did waken she had no idea who she even was. Josie had developed amnesia from being knocked out and Luke was not happy about the circumstances. Luke had been on his way to a town where supposedly the fella that had framed him was going to be arriving at. He wanted to find the man who committed the murder he was framed for and bring him to justice but he couldn’t just leave Josie behind. Even though Luke was torn, he decided that he would get Josie to a doctor as soon as possible and hopefully still have time find the scoundrel he was looking for and clear his name. When Josie woke up with no recollection of who she was or even how she came to be tied up and she was terrified. For all she knew she could have been a whore or a murderer herself. What she knew for a fact was that Luke was there and he saved her life and she was grateful. As she struggled to figure out who she was Luke was right there trying to help her. Josie knew that he was an honorable man even though he tried to keep her at arm’s length. What kind of man would give up his goals to help a stranded woman and even stay on trying to help her solve the mystery of her identity. It was because of this that Josie was smitten with Luke and she hoped that she was not already a married woman because she really wanted more with Luke. As Josie started to remember fragments from her life before, it became clear to Luke that there was more to this spitfire of a woman than he ever imagined. She swore like a man, had amazing gun shooting skills, and could use her feminine wiles to manipulate situations. Before he let her go he was going to make sure that he knew all the facts. She was an enigma that he wanted to solve and even though he did not want to let her go he had to because he was an outlaw and that was no life for a woman. As Luke and Josie come closer to the truth of who Josie really is, it becomes clear that the truth is dangerous, especially to Luke. The biggest issue I had with this story was the romance factor. I can absolutely get behind insta-love, insta-lust, insta-anything really as long as it is reasonably portrayed. Josie was already thinking nuptials by chapter three. That was way too soon for me honestly. Luke was smitten as well but he was more into trying to keep her at arm’s length for her own safety. I liked the couple together, I think they fit well, I just felt that it was too much too soon in the romance department. To me, their love was not really based on anything solid. I did enjoy how Josie’s character tried to convince Luke in several ways that she was worth holding on to, that was sweet and hilarious. Overall though, I had fun reading To Marry a Texas Outlaw. Luke was a tormented man and I thoroughly enjoyed his sense of vigilante justice and how he struggled to do the right thing and prove himself innocent. Josie was a firecracker and although her character was a little “too much” at times, I found her to be interesting and a good match for Luke. If you are looking for a historical fiction read that has the wild west feel with a bit of insta-love then I would recommend To Marry a Texas Outlaw to you. This review is based on a complimentary book I received from NetGalley. It is an honest and voluntary review. The complimentary receipt of it in no way affected my review or rating.

    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. Josie and Luke are simply perfect for each other! From the moment Luke encounters Josie the sparks and laughter and disgruntlements abound. As Whew! What a story!

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. Josie and Luke are simply perfect for each other! From the moment Luke encounters Josie the sparks and laughter and disgruntlements abound. As Sierra and Lara before her, I was able to connect with Josie and feel her struggles as she's also falling for Luke. But that girl -- she's somethin' alright -- and that something had me laughing and knowing that in real life, I'd want to be her best friend, just to see what she comes up with next and soak up every bit of life with her! Luke unquestionably has his hands full with his vulnerable spit-fire of a woman. And Luke? Oh that man! He can steal me away with him anytime! He's got such love and loyalty and honor that lives deep within that he has no problem pouring out on those around him but yet struggles to see within and accept for himself. Everyone can see it -- but stink he's a hard-headed man! Luke may have been an outlaw, however that wasn't who he really was - and watching him fully understand that was a remarkable journey. The twists and crimes to solve kept me entertained and guessing. The secondary characters melted my heart as they also provided some wisdom and comic relief at the most ideal of times. And getting to catch up with the entire Legend crew -- LOVED it! Stoker, Sam, Houston and the rest truly lived out FAMILY. This trilogy, while definitely all are standalone books, reads almost better as one big epic story and you just don't want to miss a single moment of any of it.

    I’ve often heard it said that you can’t judge a book by its cover. Sometimes, that’s true … sometimes, not. When the gorgeous cover of To Marry a Texas Outlaw by Linda Broday popped up in my email for review sign-ups, I was immediately enamored. And like Katniss Everdeen, I raised my hand shouted, “I volunteer!” After all, who can resist a ruggedly handsome Texas outlaw framed by the fiery sky of a setting sun? Me, that’s who!

The copy I received for review is an ARC, so I’m not sure how the finished product will look and feel. But I can attest, after stroking this bad boy, it feels good balanced in your hands. That sounds a bit naughty, doesn’t it? Well, I can confirm there are one or two naughty love scenes between the gorgeous covers of this romantic western. And that’s all I’ll say about that, thank you very much! *Fans Self* Ahem…what was I saying again? Oh, yes. I wanted to tell you what endeared me to this book right off the bat. I don’t know about you, but I love reading the Dedication and Acknowledgements pages of every book I read. Broday writes a lovely dedication for this book. “I dedicate this book to all the forgotten and abused children in the world who have no voice, no one to stand up for them, and no voice…” I simply adored that. As a mama, Broday’s dedication warmed my heart. The fact is, I really enjoyed Broday’s voice and writing style. I found her writing to be engaging, her world building enthralling, and the storyline of this book quite entertaining. It seems to me that the yucky fall and winter months are the perfect time to pick up a copy of this book and give it a good read. After all, there’s nothing like Spring time in Texas. And that’s the very season in which we meet the MC, Luke Weston, the gorgeous Texas outlaw bad boy who happens across a damsel in distress while on his way to deliver vengeance to the person who’s caused him a whole peck of trouble. Talk about getting sidetracked! Ah, well, I’ll leave the rest of the story for you to discover yourself. Y’all know how much I hate to give spoilers. Besides, this here romantic western deserves to be caressed lovingly with your peepers, yo! Linda Broday spins a yarn, and then uses it to knit a romance that will leave you unraveled! Go grab a copy! Grab one for your friend, too. ‘Cause you’re gonna wanna discuss this one when you’re done!

For more, follow me: To Marry a Texas Outlaw is the book 3 of Linda Broday’s Men of Legend series. It was my most anticipated installment of the series because of how much I adored the H, Luke. Since being introduced in book 1, I’ve been waiting for his story. Sadly, have to say it wasn’t how I expected it to be. Much like Bachelors of Battle Creek, the other series of Linda Broday that I read and loved, Men of Legend focuses on a family or a ‘band of brothers’ if you can call them. Even though, the brothers of Bachelors of Battle Creek series weren’t brothers by blood, these Legends brothers certainly are! The first book focuses on Sam Legend, a former Texas Ranger, who was estranged from his family because of the demands his job used to put on him. Houston is his older brother and shoulders the responsibility of the huge Legend ranch called Lone Star. They met Luke, a brother they didn’t know existed, in Sam’s story. Sam had enjoyed his job as a Texas Ranger until he thought death had finally caught up with him. A pretty terrifying description is given at the beginning of book 1, To Love a Texas Ranger, when he’s almost hanged by a group of outlaws. When he thought he was done for, a known outlaw he’s been chasing, Luke Weston becomes his unexpected savior. Luke has been so elusive that Sam had a tough time tracking him down, unable to catch him even once despite Sam’s expertise. Yet there was this odd game was being played between the two where Luke seems to chase Sam just as much as he did. And they enjoyed it as well. Why, he couldn’t tell. Until the day Luke saved his life, Sam wouldn’t have thought he’s capable of any good deed. Now he’s willing to rethink his opinion of the outlaw. The whole experience left Sam in depression, battling nightmares and PTSD. His boss sends him home to recuperate but Sam was caught in a different battle when he saves a beautiful girl named Sierra Hunt from another band of outlaws. While he was taking her away from danger, Luke Weston somehow catches up with them. He’s eager to help and Sam can’t even arrest him cause he owes his life to this guy. However their journey towards Lone Star, where Sam meant to shelter Sierra until he could figure out her troubles and how to save her, was fraught with danger so Luke’s help was more than welcomed. It seemed he was also keen on checking out Lone Star. But why? When they finally reach Lone Star is when things began unraveling. Luke’s real identity is revealed as Stoker, their father’s, first born from an affair. Well, they were in love but Stoker couldn’t marry Luke’s mother because of her own people. She was Mexican and they were against a marriage with a white guy. It was a tragic tale where Stoker never knew he’d fathered a child. Back in his ranch, he’d married Houston and Sam’s mother, even loved her as best as he could, but his Mexican senorita had always been in his mind. Now seeing his son, all grown up, tall and big with the Legend looks and temperament, Stoker could only apologize and ask Luke for a chance to be a father to him. A father Luke desperately needed with dangers dogging his every step. It left Houston and Sam in a big dilemma. Though they were unhappy about their father keeping such a huge secret from them, soon they realized they wanted Luke around, most especially knowing his circumstances. Luke’s mother was abandoned by her family and she brought him up in utter poverty. She was the one who told him about Stoker and given him a keepsake that only Stoker would remember. She requested him to go to his father for a better life. After his mother passed, Luke had followed Sam, knowing full well he’s his little brother. It was no wonder he was there to save his a$$ that fateful day! While Sam was sorting out Sierra’s trouble, we found Houston already engaged to a girl from the neighboring ranch called Becky. It seemed they were in love and couldn’t wait to get married. In fact, their marriage was an event coming soon; as soon as they could manage. No wonder I thought Houston was already settled. Unfortunately, as is revealed in book 2, The Heart of a Texas Cowboy, Becky is murdered on their wedding day by a man turned out to be her lover! Not only that, the man claimed she was pregnant with his child, but refused to marry him because he had no money or station in life. So Houston was her easy way out. All the words of love from her to Houston had been an act to snag him. Poor Houston, my heart went for him instantly because he was totally smitten with his beautiful fiancée and so looking forward to his big day! The pain of her murder, the shock of her betrayal soon turns into extreme anger towards everything. Houston lost interest in life and the living, ignoring his loved ones and drowning himself in alcohol. Stoker knew something had to be done for his son cause he couldn’t let him suffer any longer. In desperation, he and a rancher neighbor come up with an idea to give Houston a purpose in life and they knew Houston was the right person for it. You see, whereas I found Sam to be the rebellious one, Luke to be the reckless, Houston was the responsible one. Even when they didn’t know Luke, and Sam was away, Houston stayed behind as the big brother and worked shoulder to shoulder with Stoker. It’s even said in book 3 that he looked more like Stoker than any of his other bothers in his height and buff build. Sam was a tad shorter and I presume, had their mother’s look. And Luke had a stronger trace of his Latina mother’s looks mixed with Stoker’s eyes and height. Houston had been trained to take the reign of Lone Star. Not only he was responsible, but also, he was fiercely protective of what he deemed was his own. Well, I guess all the Legend brothers had that trait but Houston would never ignore a responsibility, and if it came with someone in need of his protection... Stoker knew his son well and how to appeal to that side of him. So he made up a story and threw Houston a lifeline; something Houston didn’t even know he needed badly. The appeal worked and Houston agreed to marry the girl sight unseen, just because he thought it’s going to help their ranch. But when he heard of the girl’s plight in life, he felt the need to protect her instantly. Lara had been raped by a ranch-hand a few yrs ago, and had a child as a result. She was homebound but her father, the above mentioned neighboring rancher, was anxious to see her have a better life than how she was living. The a$$hole who raped her had fled but she was always worried that he may show up to stake a claim of her little girl... I won’t go in to the details of the ‘plot’ Stoker and he hatched, but it was a life changer for both her and Houston. They thanked their lucky stars, and their fathers, later on for bringing them together. Because otherwise, Houston would’ve never known Lara, let alone marrying her. She certainly had no idea what her father up to, but married Houston mainly for the safety of her little girl. This story had everything, but mainly the budding romance between an already married couple where Houston had done his utmost best to gain Lara’s trust and return her self-confidence. She began believing in herself, falling in love with her husband each day. Also some suspenseful moments with enough actions and adventures. To me, Houston was the most surprising of the Legend brother because initially I didn’t even expect that he’d have his own book! He was a gentleman through and through, but when the occasion called for it, he could be a savage to protect the ones he loved. Soon, Lara and her daughter Gracie were included in that list. Houston and everybody else fell in love with that little girl and Gracie took to Houston like she’d never done before. I absolutely loved it, and now that I’ve read book 3, would say that that was my favorite book in the series. :) To Marry a Texas Outlaw was my most anticipated installment because despite everything, I leaned towards Luke. I found him hot and intense; an outlaw with a heart of gold that no girl can ignore. I was eagerly waiting to see who wins Luke’s heart. He’d long buried all his tender feelings since the death of his beloved mother and his first love and wife, Angelina and whoever it was would have to REALLY work for it, right? Apparently not. LOL In the first 2 installments, bit by bit Luke’s past life with his mother as the single parent, the hardship he’d endured and what pushed him to become an outlaw, had been carefully put together. You get to know a lot about him by the time he gets his own book. Yet, I couldn’t tell who was the lucky girl to be paired with him. There were a few hit and miss secondary characters that I thought would be his heroine, but neither of them did. So, in that sense, Josie, the h was an entirely new character. I didn’t know her as well as Luke but I can’t say I was very fond of her anyway. Since Luke has gotten to know his family he hadn’t had to shoulder his burdens alone anymore. Both his brothers, who’d welcomed him with open arms, had offered help. So did his father, who had shed tears never knowing he’d had a son with his first love. He tried his own way to amend it by wanting to help Luke out of his troubles, mostly stemming from his wild ways and outlaw days. Hell, Luke has a bounty on his head, which is why he has to hide away as much as possible; these days often at Lone Star. But Luke was also a very proud man and he didn’t want his family get mixed up with what he deemed was his own ‘sins’. He definitely thought he should take care of his own problems. Lately though, Luke’s strong resolve had been floundering. From not really having a loving family –though his mother loved him more than anything else in the world, she died when he was very young—to a family full of love, Luke didn’t know how to handle it all. It was overwhelming, and frankly, scary for a loner like him. Though he’d known Stoker and his bothers’ existence, Luke spend a big part of his life hating the fact that he was left to fend for himself when he could’ve had smooth sailing. Now, after spending a few years with them, Luke knew better. Knew that had Stoker known about him, he’d had brought Luke home for sure. He’d also seen to just what length his brothers and his father would go to help him, save his sorry hide so Luke had no doubt that he’s loved. But still, his proud self wanted to clear his own name so he can call himself a Legend without anything tarnishing his name. Luke was working his way to find the man who was the actual the murderer. He also knew that the murderer framed him for a reason. But why? Luke thought he knew who it was, all he needed to do was to find the man and wrestle a confession out of him but things would turn out to be much more complicated that he could’ve ever expected. On the way to investigate, he comes across a scene where a girl was tied to a tree and being taunted by some outlaws Luke knew and despised. He had to save the damsel in distress, which he does. Seeing her all bloody and messy, he got anxious of her safety, but the Miss in question lets him know that it’s not her blood. She also lets him know that she can’t remember a damned thing about herself. Not a single thing, not her even name, let alone how she got herself into this debacle! Knowing it’ll slow him down Luke takes up on her. He had no other safe place to take his damsel but to Lone Star, so despite all his misgivings, he plans to ride there. Soon, it was also smitten with the tall blonde. TBH that kinda killed the fun for me because it all seemed way too....easy? Convenient? It was definitely lust at first sight for both. Definitely not like how I thought Luke’s story will go. He was smitten and wanted the girl but he knew he had to take care of her messy business first; at the least find out who she was. Then there was his own business that’s still not resolved. Though in a few days she could recall her name as Josie, it also became clear that trouble was dogging her steps. There were quite a bit of trouble they had to wade through before they finally reached Lone Star. In there, Stoker welcomes Josie. But soon, the need to investigate more starts bugging both Luke and Josie, who was dying to know her true identity. The attraction between them was also growing but Luke was still being a gentleman. Though I would’ve liked Josie’s identity being revealed before they became intimate, that doesn’t happen. Luke wanted to ride out himself, preferring to keep her safe, but Josie who is as stubborn as a mule and stupidly impulsive, would not be left behind. She begins stomping her feet so she can also accompany Luke. From earlier experience, he already knew what kinda trouble she was so he decides it’s better to take her than leave her here. That way he could keep an eye on her, even if it makes them both more vulnerable than he’s willing to acknowledge. On this journey though, they wade through even more trouble, some of them Josie making (looks like Luke was forever rescuing her from one of her dumba$$ moves :/), they finally end up having sex on one night. I can’t give you an accurate description of all that happened because, TBH, by then I was simply skimming through to finish the book. For me, Josie seemed waaaay too problematic than she was worth it and, to me, it seemed like Luke put up with her just because she was a beauty and he was insanely attracted to her. Also, I often wondered, how is that for all the problems she’d gotten themselves into, Josie remained in far better shape even though Luke finally ended up taking a bullet to his gut that could’ve ended his life. Yep, once again to save her from trouble. Even when I was worrying over Luke, I was going ‘good God, not again!’ I don’t know what happened, but I do acknowledge that I had a different vision for Luke’s story and Josie wasn’t the type of h I envisioned for him. His falling for her was too convenient, difficult to believe for a hardened guy like him. Even though I always loved and admired the Legends, their love for each-other and everything else in the story, romance-wise it was underwhelming for me. I couldn’t like anything about that part even though I tried my best. :( I’m not saying the author rushed through it, cause she put considerable amount of effort in this story to weave a tale with Josie’s troubles with Luke’s own problems leading to a believable conclusion. Still, I was not fond of Josie and couldn’t wait to finish the book. I do love Linda Broday’s writing and enjoyed her stories so far so I’ll be waiting to see what she’s got up her sleeves next. I think this book brings the end to the Men of Legend series. Thankfully, I read on author’s website there’s a spin-off coming from this series next year (a bit of a long wait for me :(). Some of the characters have been introduced already, and I can’t wait to check it out! Meanwhile, 3.5 stars for To Marry a Texas Outlaw. I’d still recommend it because what bugged me may not bug you at all. Apart from my issues stated above, the story was enjoyable.

    A very well-written western historical romance. This is the story of an outlaw with a conscience and a tough-as-nails, sweet girl with amnesia. Sound interesting? Add in an orphaned boy with a dog, a settlement of unwanted women and an estranged father and you have quite a story. Set in the wild and wooly early days of Texas this story's foundation is family love. A very satisfying read that brought me to tears at the end. A very well-written western historical romance.

I also really loved the side characters like the beer-drinking horse! What a hoot! I was bummed that Luke, the main male character, was not a true outlaw. He was framed for a murder he didn't commit.

It felt like an adventure story with the two main characters liking each other but knowing it might not work out since one of them is on the run and trying to clear his name. I am curious to read the other books! I do recommend this if you need a quick, light read with some action and some romance. I'll give this a 3.

    I have waited a long time to be able to read Luke’s story and what an exciting story it is. If you have read the other men of legends than you know Luke is kind of the black sheep of the family. He was born on the other side of the blanket because his mother was taken away from his father and his father married another. Growing up thinking his father never wanted his mother or him only to find out his father never knew of him. There is a lot of background that is in the first two books. This is I have waited a long time to be able to read Luke’s story and what an exciting story it is. If you have read the other men of legends than you know Luke is kind of the black sheep of the family. He was born on the other side of the blanket because his mother was taken away from his father and his father married another. Growing up thinking his father never wanted his mother or him only to find out his father never knew of him. There is a lot of background that is in the first two books. This is a standalone and you do not need to read the other books in the series to know what happened in the past the author fills you in not leaving anything out. This book takes off with Luke trying to find the man who framed him for murder only to find a team of horses, a lady tied to a tree and the men who tied her. Ms. Broday covers a lot of issues here the most important is family. Luke won’t let his family help him or take the blame he is proud and stands up for what he has done. He doesn’t understand what love means and why people would try to protect him. He is about to learn a very important lesson in this area. What you will find between these pages is one exciting read full of adventure, mystery, romance, love, danger, heart stopping moments and so much more. Josie doesn’t know who she is after being hit in the head she has lost her memory. Once being saved by Luke and understanding he won’t hurt her she has nowhere to go and no home to go to. This is a woman who isn’t lady like at all but stands her ground willing to fight and her mouthy ways would make a saloon girl blush. She is full of fire, has a tempter like no one you have ever seen. She throws sparks from her eyes that would bring most men to their knees. On meeting Luke is throw for a loop good lord this women can curse, she sure didn’t come from a fantasy home. Her outlook on life, her tempter and the fire that is inside of her is part of her charm. She is a mystery and one he plans on working out. Their first meeting has Luke helping a wild cat. its hair, teeth and eyeballs as he tries his best to calm her down. Lord have mercy what a women, a true spit fire after his own heart. Every time they start working on her memory or what they should do something or someone gets in their way. Luke seems to pick up strays like most girls pick flowers. He may be an outlaw wanted for his crimes but he has a heart of gold for women, children and animals. These are the things that truly bring this story to life and wraps your heart around the pages of this book taking you back in time when men knew how to be gentle and strong. They knew how to fight and keep what is theirs why giving back and working the land to make a home. Luke does have another side to him that is wild, dangerous and wicked. He can kill in a blink of an eye and isn’t afraid shoot first and ask questions later. There is only one things he is afraid of and that is to love and let someone in. The attraction really comes off them from the start as they butt heads together time and time again. Both demand and neither willing to step back. Both are strong and proud but so kind hearted and loving. I laughed and chuckled my way through as Josie stole my heart with her wild ways and her helping hands. There are a lot of touch and goes along with a few heart stopping moments when you find yourself talking to the characters. There were times I found myself cheering and others times when my eyes got watery. There are a few shocks in store for the reader as things take place and other times when you would just like to shake Luke because he has too much pride. You find a story of what love and family truly mean and a whole nether world out there that wants in with wonderful characters who aren’t willing to bend until one little lady with a bad tempter shows them the way. The ending had my heart in my throat with tears ready to fall as the author takes you on one tailspin after another. It also makes you laugh at how Josie lays down the law to one very sick man. I love these characters as I am sure you will. Noah is such a dear and said things that will make you laugh. Stoker is one proud pa who really loves his kids and will do what is needed to keep them safe. I really loved to visit with past characters seeing what is new. Lara and her charming daughter from the last book will always be my favorite it was so nice to see them again. 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. I just love the men of legend each one took a piece of my heart as I closed the book and let the meaning of their story sink in. I wonder if this is the end or will there be a spinoff of the ladies in the hideout wanting a place to call home?

    After enjoying my first Broday novel earlier this year, I knew I wanted to read another of hers and was thrilled when I got approved for an advanced copy of this book. Most of the historical romance fiction I've read is set somewhere in the UK with debutantes and rakes, so I love that Broday sets hers in Texas where things are a bit more western and uncivilized. Luke and Josie are both likeable characters and I loved that Josie didn't fit the mold of a typical demure girl of that time.

Most of the historical romance fiction I've read is set somewhere in the UK with debutantes and rakes, so I love that Broday sets hers in Texas where things are a bit more western and uncivilized. Luke and Josie are both likeable characters and I loved that Josie didn't fit the mold of a typical demure girl of that time. She spoke her mind and had a bit of a mouth on her (that went well with her unpredictable temper). Typically I am not a fan of insta-love, and though Luke and Josie fall for each other in less than a week, I liked their relationship and it didn't feel quick or forced. The side characters were enjoyable as well. I haven't read the other two books in this series (which I assume focus on Luke's half-brothers), but I am eager to go back and read their stories. With outlaws running amok and the search for Josie's past, there is plenty of action in To Marry a Texas Outlaw. There is also plenty of heartwarming moments. Broday clearly has a passion for neglected and abused children (they've shown up in both books I've read) and I love how she seamlessly ties them into the story and tugs your heartstrings without making it feel gratuitous. After a second entertaining book, Broday's long list of published books have now been added to my tbr.

Linda Broday has created just such a family in her Men of Legend series, and in her latest novel “To Marry a Texas Outlaw,” she explores how deep a family’s love can go. Luke Weston is the wayward son of Stoker who is an outlaw that is trying to figure out who set him up to take the fall for a murder he did not commit. On his way to a meeting, he discovers Josie Morgan who has been assaulted and left to die, but Josie has no idea who she really is due to amnesia. Together Josie and Luke search for the answers to who she really is while Luke works on putting his past to rest in order to accept the father who has loved him since they met. Linda Broday is the consummate author of Western Romance and she does not disappoint in her latest endeavor. I was given an advanced copy of this book, and all of the opinions expressed in this review are my own.

    It’s no secret that Linda Broday is an amazing writer. Time and time again she produces one amazing story after another. Well, in To Marry a Texas Outlaw she really outdid herself. She went beyond amazing. She was remarkable, incredible, extraordinary! Luke Weston is a man running from not only the law, but also outlaws and his own demons. He never thinks he’s worthy enough to be a son, brother, lover... a Legend. But what he really is, is a man who is more then worthy.

Luke Weston is a man running from not only the law, but also outlaws and his own demons. He never thinks he’s worthy enough to be a son, brother, lover... a Legend. But what he really is, is a man who is more then worthy. He’s honorable, dependable, strong, and oooooh so sexy! Josie Morgan is a feisty spitfire of a woman who can’t remember who she is. But she immediately trusts Luke and allows him to help her. Luke and Josie go through trials and tribulations and Luke finally comes to the realization that he loves Josie and is worthy of her love in return. He realizes that being a Legend is in his blood and he has a right to claim it. This story kept me entertained through the entire book. There was not one boring part. I love how Mrs. Broday can start a story and keep it so enjoyable throughout.

What happened? Luke is trying to clear his name,his real name that he desperately tried to keep from everyone knowing. He's a legend, in more ways than one. Now Josie is with him.

Or are they both just two people trying to find family and themselves? Luke is part of a legend family. There is Sam, Houston (Luke's brothers) and Stoker, Luke's real father. But can the oldest Legend brother finally clear his name, go home and be a part of a family again? The Lone Star Ranch is part his. Right now he doesn't have time for a woman in his life. He denies as time goes on that he loves Josie and Josie loves him Do dreams really come true? The author gives you a love story between what seems to be two wanted outlaws... There is so much action, suspense, the desire to love and want the best for these two outlaws, if they are outlaws. Reading the book, you don't care, but as the book gains momentum, you just want them to live out their dreams, find love and live on the Lone Star Ranch as Legends. Not outlaw legends, but as Luke and Josie Legend.The author has you taking deep breathes, thinking on what family really means and of course, dreams and love. I love westerns, especially with that touch of romance. This book is one of a kind. It's the good guy striving to take down his past, claim his home and become a part of a family, with Josie, his brothers and his father. There's others that Luke takes into his life, but you'll have to read to find out. The only problem I had with the book was it ended. I wanted more of Luke Weston, who was a real Legend! Don't we all love the bad boy! I received a copy of this book from Night Owl Reviews and the author and voluntarily decided to review 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 stor 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. Barb The Reading Cafe
