Guest Post - Linda Broday, author of Twice A Texas Bride

I'm pleased today to host my good friend, author Linda Broday!  Linda is a best-selling writer of wonderful western romances, and she has a brand new book, "Twice A Texas Bride," which is being released today! Linda has taken time out of her busy schedule to talk about her new book and her writing!  So, with no further ado, here's Linda!

I’m so excited about the release of TWICE A TEXAS BRIDE. This is the second in my Bachelors of Battle Creek series and features middle brother Rand Sinclair.

I love to write children and animals into my stories because they add an extra layer of depth and emotion. I can't remember one that didn't have some or all of them in it.

Animals have such amazing love and loyalty for their owners. We once had a border collie named Daisy and that dog was willing to die to protect us. I grieved for months when she died of old age.

In this story, six-year-old Toby, whose father is a mean outlaw with a thirst to kill, just wants someone to love him. Callie Quinn is on the run with Toby, desperate to keep Nate Fleming from getting the boy. Rand joins the fight, determined to keep them both safe. He's unwilling to pay the high cost of losing.

Rand and Callie also open up their hearts later in the story to a half-Indian baby named Wren after both her parents die and no one else steps forward to claim her.

Then there's a ragged dog that Rand finds. Toby immediately forms a deep bond with the golden retriever he names Biscuit and those two become inseparable.

Kids and dogs make this story one to remember. I hope you agree.

Here’s a blurb:

Scars of the past run deep inside former saloon owner Rand Sinclair, leaving jagged pain and two certainties. He'll never fall in love again. Never marry.

He finally has the ranch and land he's dreamed of owning and that's enough. But when he finds a woman and little boy hiding out in one of his outbuildings in the bitter cold, he can't turn his back. He offers them a safe haven and the warmth of his fire.

Callie Quinn is on the run from a killer outlaw who vows to see her dead and take the boy. Slowly, Rand uncovers her secrets and realizes the only way to keep her and Toby safe is to push all his chips to the center of the table. He risks everything...his name...and his heart...for the woman who's awakened a fierce hunger for love.

Whoever wants to harm her will have to go through him.

And he’ll go through hell for her.

Join me for this thrilling story about learning to trust again and grabbing hold of happiness with both hands and not letting it slip away. Twice a Texas Bride is available in all formats. And if you missed Texas Mail Order Bride, you can find it online or in bookstores.

About The Author:

Linda is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author. Her interest in reading and history came very early, so it was no surprise she began writing western historical romances. She resides in the Texas Panhandle on land the American Indian and Comancheros once roamed, where ghosts from the past lurk around every corner. Humble roots and the love of family have become focal points of each book she writes.

My thanks to Linda for stopping by the blog!  Watch for my review of "Twice A Texas Bride" tomorrow!

Hi Sharon, thank you so much for letting me tell readers about this book. I'm so excited to have Rand's story out. He's a wonderful hero and his love for Callie very strong. I knew when I wrote him into Texas Mail Order Bride he had a powerful story to tell. I certainly wasn't wrong. I discovered lots of surprises during the writing of this story. He had lots of secrets. But then so did Callie.

Thank you for letting me be blog. It's always a pleasure on Sharon's Garden of Book Reviews!

Oh, Linda, I am a sucker for children and dogs! I write a lot of them into my stories, too. Twice a Texas Bride sounds wonderful, as does Texas Mail Order Bride. I love mail order bride stories, and of course, this is a win-win situation for me--getting to read some new books by one of my very favorite authors about Texas brides and mail order brides!

Hugs, dear friend! And Congratulations!

Another great blog, Linda! I'm loving learning more about you. When I was a kid, all the dogs my family had were border collies (except one which was a blue heeler - a border collie dingo cross). Every one had such different but wonderful personalities. Peggy used to love watching TV and got very excited when a Western came on, and she could bark at the onscreen horses and cattle. I'm looking forward to reading Twice a Texas Bride!
