Twice A Texas Bride by Linda Broday - Book Review

About The Book:

Callie leaned into him, borrowing his strength. "I'm so tired of being scared, Rand."
"Running away won't change that. Trust me with your secrets. There's no reason to hold back any longer."
She knew he was right. It was time to come clean.
"Start with your name," he said.

Left with emotional scars from his time in an orphanage, Rand Sinclair has vowed never to marry. But when he discovers Callie Quinn and a small orphan boy hiding on his ranch, he can't help but open his home to the desperate runaways.
Callie has been betrayed by every man she's ever known. While she's grateful for Rand's incredible kindness, she knows it's only a matter of time before he shows his true colors. But she needs this safe haven-maybe the outlaw on her trail won't find them here. Yet as Rand slowly uncovers her secret fears, they each come to realize that the only way to keep her safe is for Rand to risk everything to offer her the protection of his name...and his heart.

My Thoughts:

In her second book of the Bachelors of Battle Creek series, author Linda Broday shines the light on bachelor brother/rancher Rand Sinclair and Callie Quinn, the lady who steals his heart and turns the confirmed bachelor into an instant daddy/husband/provider.

As usual, Linda displays her masterful storytelling skills in this romantic and excitingly suspenseful tale. Her characters are people you'd be proud to know (ok, that's a Texas saying!) and I especially loved how she brought in characters (Cooper and Delta; brother Brett, etc.) from the first book and brings readers up to date on their stories. And the setting, the small town of Battle Creek, Texas, is a wonderful example of the historic past in the Lone Star State. And the addition of cute kids and a loveable dog makes this story a must read for western romance fans.

"Twice A Texas Bride" is just a fantastically fun book that grabs the reader and doesn't let go until the very last page. There is romance, suspense, bad guys, good guys, kids, dogs - you  name it!  A little something for everyone!  I highly recommend it and I can't wait for the next book, "Forever His Texas Bride," to come out!
