E.E. Burke's Best of the West: NYT Bestselling Author Linda Broday brings us a Texas Star!

The son of a notorious outlaw, Roan Penny yearns to make his life count…but heroism comes with a price. Left badly injured, only the kindness of a gentle stranger can save him. He longs to be with the woman he calls his Texas star—but he knows he’ll bring her nothing but trouble.


Marley McClain has lived a charmed life, and she’s determined to spend the rest of her days at her quiet hero’s side…but she isn’t what she seems. A life-long secret threatens to destroy everything she knows—and everything she could hope to be. As dangerous men threaten to pull her back into the shadows, Roan rides hell-bent for leather to save her…before he loses her light for good.

Here's an excerpt: 

His thoughts drifted until he felt her lean over him, felt a strand of hair brush his shoulder. He opened his eyes to find himself staring into her pretty brown gaze just inches away. For a second, he barely breathed for fear it was a dream and she’d vanish.

Her close proximity did strange things to his heart. Dark curls framed her face and her eyes glistened like diamonds shimmering in a stream. Air got trapped in his lungs and the wanting was so powerful, it sent throbbing pain through him.

Like a man wandering too long alone, he reached to capture a strand of hair between his thumb and forefinger. The texture was like satin and he couldn’t move, couldn’t think, couldn’t speak. Her soft breath whispered against his newly shaved cheek and unexpected hunger rose.

He became aware of the length of her eyelashes, her heartbeat, the pulse in the hollow of her elegant neck. He’d long searched for a woman like Marley, never once thinking she existed.

Her mouth was so close. Just a slight move forward…

But to what end? He wouldn’t tease her, make her think they could have more when in truth they could have no future at all.

Marley Rose McClain was everything a man like him could never have and to even wish for a life with her was a big mistake that could only lead to bitter disappointment. Best to remember his place and that he nothing to offer—not to her or any woman. But maybe for just a moment he could pretend.

 “You have the silkiest hair I’ve ever felt.” His voice was low and full of yearning. He released the strand and brushed a finger lightly across her cheek. “I’m afraid you got a poor bargain when you patched up my rotten hide.”

“Let me be the judge of that. There is nothing wrong with your hide.” Her soft statement wound around his heart like a stubborn trumpet vine. She adjusted her angle, cleared her throat, and moved back a fraction. Her attention once again on his jaw, she applied the razor’s edge to his stubble. “I’m glad I found you.”

MEET THE AUTHOR


Watching TV westerns during my youth fed my love of cowboys and the old West and they still do whenever I can catch one. 

Here in the Texas Panhandle, I reside on land the American Indian and Comancheros once roamed and at times I can hear their voices in the wind. This state’s rich history is one reason I set all my stories here. I love research and looking for little-known tidbits to add realism to my stories. When I’m not writing, I collect old coins and I confess to being a rock hound.

Q: Do you write for yourself or for your readers?

I mainly write for me. I’m actually entertaining myself and writing feeds my soul. It’s a bonus when readers like my books too.

Q: What is your most interesting writing quirk?

I always start a story with some kind of huge jolt that often seems like the black moment. In this book, hooded riders gallop from the darkness and kill my hero Roan Penny’s friend. That sets the stage for the rest of the book.

Q: What is your writing Kryptonite?

Children. When I’m writing about children, the words can’t flow out fast enough. I feel their fears, hopes, struggles right along with them. If I get stuck in a story, I add a child and boy does the story take off.

Q: What is the first romance you remember reading?

I was a sophomore in high school. The title was Angelique by Sergeanne Golon. They were a French husband and wife team and they wrote this series about a young girl whose father sold her to a horribly disfigured man that she was terrified of. Of course, he was very kind and she fell in love with him.

Q: What sound do you love?

The crunch of leaves under my feet in fall and the gentle swishing sound they make as they fall from the trees. It makes me happy to be alive and I get all warm inside.

Q: If this book was made into a movie, who would play your characters?

Without a doubt, Scott Eastwood would play Roan Penny. And Jennifer Lopez would be perfect for Marley Rose. I get goosebumps thinking about it.

Q: What inspired you to write the opening of this book with the hooded gang and them leaving Roan half-dead in the cold?


One time my husband and I were coming out of Jacksboro, Texas about sundown when this cop car zoomed around us. It was in winter and freezing cold. Some distance from the city limits sign, the cops pulled onto the shoulder and jerked this young man out of the backseat. The man was in shirt sleeves and they just left him standing at the side of the road with no houses around and a long way to the next town. I always wondered if the man found shelter or what happened to him. That became the opening of this book. Roan was left for dead.
