    Danger and emotion

    I usually stick to the lords and ladies of England when it comes to any historicals that I read but every once in a while something else will catch my eye. And I have to say I’m really glad that something was this book. Things have been really, really hard for both Tally and Clay (and their friends). Horrible circumstances and maybe some bad decisions by themselves and/or others have led them down a difficult path. Clay’s life as an outlaw has left him with a price on his head but he’s intent on starting over and creating a new life for himself. One that involves a woman to share it with. Unfortunately Tally has her own demons to fight and she brings a bit of trouble with her to Devil’s Crossing. I loved that both Clay and Tally are determined to find a way to have a good life. They don’t turn away when things get difficult, or if they do they quickly figure out that they need to stand up for themselves and what’s right even when it’s challenging. Neither of them are coming to this relationship whole but they know they want better and they are willing to work at it. There are people that depend on them and they are making a new family, a new life, together and it requires them to learn to trust each other and work together. Broday doesn’t make things easy for anyone here but she definitely gives readers a page-turner of a story. With every new hardship or threat that comes knocking at their door, Clay and Tally do their best to meet it head on. They’ve had rough times in the past and the future isn’t coming easy, but they are going to face it together. Moments of danger kept me glued to the pages but so did the more tender moments as they work together to make a family of their little band of misfits. It’s as heart-warming as it was suspenseful, and I look forward to having Broday take me for another ride. (Note: This is the first in this series, which is a spinoff of an existing one. It can stand alone but I’m curious how much I would have already known about these characters if this wasn’t the first book I’d read by this author. I don’t think it impacted much but may have added some depth.) **Review given honestly and freely after receipt of a reader copy. This opinion is completely my own and was not influenced in any way.**

    Love in the West

    Be still my heart! I have fallen in love with western historical romance and just cannot read enough! Linda Broday is a master at developing a sense of time and space where you almost feel you are there and with her in depth character thoughts and descriptions, they come alive off the page. Once I started, I could not stop, so set aside some time when you begin because it will pull you in quickly! Clay and Tally both have pasts they want to forget and begin life anew as husband and wife. Clay was a previous outlaw that has tried to build a town but it seems he cannot catch a break. As his mail order bride arrives, he knows she might turn around and leave when she sees how the town has been burned. Tally has escaped from an insane asylum, where she was wrongly held and brings with her a little girl Violet that escaped with her. These two just warmed my heart and pulled me into their emotions. Tally just wanted someone to protect her and Clay was up to the challenge. An endearing story that I did not want to end, but in turning the last page I had to remind myself there are other books in this series to come! I highly recommend!

    One of my favorites by Linda!

    "She was tired of settling. She wanted to be all of someone's world, not just a small part. She yearned to fill a man's heart so full that his love for her spilled out all over the place." The Outlaw's Mail Order Bride is about Clay, who I was introduced to in The Heart of a Texas Cowboy. He was a bit mysterious in that book, and that made me curious about him. I am always happy when side-characters get their own story/HEA. And I think he found his perfect match in Tally Shannon, who escaped a psychiatric hospital in which she was wrongfully detained. She is very independent and doesn't trust easily, but she's also very practical. She is strong and can definitely take care of herself. I love these type of women in my Historical Romance books. Clay is a great guy and has turned his life around, he doesn't want to be an outlaw anymore. He was very caring and patient, especially when he first met Tally face to face. He knows he has to be cautious in not making Tally regret agreeing to marrying him. She doesn't come alone. She brings along Violet, a little girl, who is even more afraid of strangers and especially men. Clay has to do his best to win her trust. The scenes between Clay and Violet were my favorites. She was just the cutest. "Sometimes, if we're lucky, there's a crack in the darkness and light seeps in. You're my light, Tally. My hope, my salvation, my future." I adore Linda Broday's Historical Western Romances. She does such a great job in writing complete characters with intriguing stories. She doesn't rush anything, and this results in great character development. I do have to admit that her stories are bit on the longer side than what I usually read, but I don't really mind it in my Historical Romances. This book had plenty of romance, action, humor and some emotional scenes as well. The development in Clay and Tally's relationship is amazing, and I loved seeing it grow. They were a team and had each other's backs. They weren't perfect and made mistakes, but they knew have to fix those and learn from it. I highly recommend Linda's books to everyone who loves Historical Romances (HR). As for readers who haven't read any Western/Frontier HR, I hope you'll give it a try because you don't know what you are missing out on.
