"Linda Broday's heroes step right out of her books and into your heart." --JODI THOMAS, New York Times bestselling author
He'll do whatever it takes
To keep them safe
Duel McClain has lost everything he's ever loved: his wife, his son, his sense of self. But when a strange twist of fate--and a poker game he'll never forget--leaves an innocent little girl in his care, Duel vows to defend his new family to his very last breath. If only he knew a single thing about taking care of babies...
Just as Duel swears his life can't get any more complicated, a beautiful woman stumbles into the light of his campfire, desperate for help. Jessie Foltry is hungry, tired, and running for her life. She agrees to help Duel care for the child in exchange for his protection, even as she fights to guard her broken heart. But Duel will do whatever it takes to make Jessie see that the Texas plains have more than one kind of knight, and perhaps their salvation is closer than either of them could have dreamed...

Romance: Highland homecoming
A Highland warrior returns home in Never Kiss a Highlander by Michele Sinclair. After years away, Hamish MacBrieve heeds his brother’s call to return and protect the family holdings, even though painful memories reside there—the woman Hamish loved fell for his brother and married him instead. But once he returns home, another woman grabs his attention. Mairead MacMathain, whom Hamish only recalls as a little girl, has grown up and is a tempting distraction even for a man who believes himself incapable of falling in love again. Mairead knows her heart—and soon Hamish has it—but there’s danger for the clan if Hamish can’t vanquish a brutal enemy who wants Mairead for himself. Family meddling adds another layer of trouble for the pair, and there is more than one secret plan afoot. A Highland frolic starring a feisty heroine and a hero with brains and brawn, Never Kiss a Highlander is great fun.
A resilient pair meets with tribulations and triumph in Knight on the Texas Plains by Linda Broday. In 1880, grieving farmer Duel McClain finds himself encumbered with a baby girl and a woman in desperate need. Since he has no experience with caring for children, Duel and the mysterious Jessie Foltry make an agreement to travel back to his family together. Once they arrive in Tranquility, Texas, Jessie finds an ease she’s longed for. Although she’s ready to be a wife in name only, she marries Duel after sharing her darkest secret with him. They are working toward a productive and loving marriage when Jessie’s past catches up with them—in the guise of Duel’s own brother, a Texas Ranger. Now the new family is put to the hardest test of all, and while Jessie trusts her Western knight, she knows that fate isn’t always on the side of what’s right. Broday’s latest is a tender romance to touch the heart.
