Guest Post with Giveway ~ Knight On The Texas Plains by Linda Broday

What Are You Reading Right Now?

The book I’m deep into is a little out of the ordinary for me but I’m loving REDEEMING LOVE by Francine Rivers. This inspirational romance came out many years ago but for some reason I never had the urge to read it even though several of my friends encouraged me to pick it up.

Am I ever glad I finally did. What a story!

Sarah lives with her single mother who is kept by a man who refuses to acknowledge his daughter. He says despicable, hurtful things to Sarah and tells her she shouldn’t have been born and that he hates her. Sarah is only eight years old when her mother dies and she’s given to a pedophile who inducts her into a world of horror. He gives her the name of Angel.

As Angel gets older, she tries several times to escape but is caught and faces horrible consequences. When she becomes a young lady, he tires of her and sets her up in a house of prostitution where she’s the star attraction. She sees her life as a waste and believes she doesn’t deserve anything better. Her soul is so scarred and dirty, she thinks it can never be cleansed and becomes very bitter.

Then Michael Hosea enters her life. He hears G-d tell him that Angel is the woman he should marry. A man of great faith, Michael never questions G-d. From there it’s an unforgettable story of redemption and love that has deeply touched me and I’m not a huge inspirational reader. My heart simply breaks for Angel. And Michael too.

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…

 lindaThough I now reside in the Texas Panhandle, I grew up in a small town in New Mexico. From an early age, I was lucky enough to discover wealth didn’t exactly pertain to money. Though my parents could barely afford the necessities, they managed to instill deep rooted values and a thirst for books. My favorite memories are the yearly road trips we made to California on Route 66 to visit grandparents. We’d stop at museums, trading posts, ghost towns and anything else that held our interest. I’m sure that’s where my love of history and the Old West was born.

I’ve been a “writer in training” my whole life. As young girls, my sister and I became obsessed with books. Many nights long after the house grew dark and everyone else was asleep, we’d lie beneath our covers and read by flashlight until we either reached the end of the book or our eyes got too heavy to see the words. Books opened up entirely new, exciting worlds that seemed limited only by our imaginations. I never imagined in a hundred years that I could create my own worlds. That undertaking seemed as far-fetched as scaling Mt. Everest. But write I did. It took me five years to finish that first novel and it will never be anything more than fire-starter material. With a small measure of confidence though, I wrote others that found their way onto an editor’s desk and then into bookstores.

Cowboys have always fascinated me so it’s no wonder that I love to write about them and their ladies and the struggles they endure in trying to carve out a small place to call home. It took some awfully tough men and women to settle this great country of ours.

I grew up watching TV westerns and hated that the cowboy always rode into the sunset all by his lonesome. I vowed to write stories that gave the cowboy someone to share his life with besides his trusty horse. I wanted him to marry that pretty woman he fell in love with, not leave her behind. That’s what I’ve endeavored to do and I think in that aspect I’ve succeeded. If I can capture one small portion of his grit and determination, that’s an added bonus. I want to show in my stories people who might’ve lived at one time. They’re ordinary, but they have more guts and more backbone than anyone.

Western romance is my passion. I feel truly blessed. Humble roots and the love of family have become focal points in my stories. I sincerely hope readers enjoy the characters and tales I strive to bring to life on the printed page.
