Duel McClain buries his wife and infant son, climbs in the saddle, and rides off. Locked in grief, he drifts from one Texas town to another as the months pass. He rides into a border town and gets in a card game in the saloon. On the last hand, the opponent across from him runs out of money. The man reaches down for a baby and plunks her in the center of the table. Whoever wins the pot, gets her too. After Duel wins with the Deadman’s Hand, he tries to give the baby back. But when the man tells him he’ll sell her, Duel keeps his prize.
On the way back to his home, he runs across a woman covered in blood. She only says her name is Jessie and the blood isn’t hers. The deep fear in her eyes touches Duel and he has to do something. He strikes a bargain—he’ll take her anywhere she wants to go in return for helping with the child.

Jessie sees honor, respect, and kindness in his eyes. And the moment she holds the baby in her arms, her heart melts. Once they reach Duel’s home, she confesses she killed her husband and tells him the law will come. Desperate to save her, he offers marriage and she accepts.

They settle in and love develops. But each day grows more tense. Lawmen are coming and they can’t stop them. Soon, she’ll face the hangman’s rope.

Praise for Knight on the Texas Plains:
“Broday (the Men of Legend series) has a knack for capturing the hesitations of both Duel and Jessie and unfurling a twisting plot without resorting to melodrama. Through carefully deployed flashbacks, she slowly exposes the horrors of Jessie’s marriage, culminating in a truly grisly image of depravity without overwhelming the tender love story. Fans of historical romances will be pleased.”  ~~ Publisher’s Weekly
“The instant a sweet baby girl, an abused woman, a stray dog, and a reluctant hero meet, readers are drawn into a tender and tough love story that touches many emotions and will have them believing in the healing power of love.”  ~~ Romantic Times 4 ½ Stars Top Pick!
“Broday’s latest is a tender romance to touch the heart.”  
~~ Bookpage
“This story is simply endearing, packed with powerful message of humanity and the true healing power of family and love!!” ~~ Addicted to Romance  
Throughout the well-paced story, there was suspense, tears, fear, revulsion, and no shortage of laughter and joy. I didn’t want the story to end.” ~~ Teresa on Goodreads

Linda Broday, Historical Western Romance Author  I’m a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of 8 full length historical western romance novels, with another set to release 2017, and 10 short stories. Watching TV westerns during my youth fed my love of cowboys and the old West and they still do. I reside in the Texas Panhandle on land the American Indian and Comancheros once roamed. At times, I can feel their ghosts lurking around every corner. Texas’ 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. I’ve been accused (and quite unfairly I might add) of making a nuisance of myself at museums, libraries, and historical places. I’m also a movie buff and love sitting in a dark theater, watching the magic on the screen. As long as I’m confessing…chocolate is my best friend. It just soothes my soul.

  1. Hi Missus Gonza…..Thank you so much for having me back and being a stop on this latest Texas Book Tour! I loved sharing just a few of the pictures that tell of my journey through life. I’ve had so many unbelievable experiences and good fortune–things people would give their eyeteeth to have. And I appreciate every joy, every trial, and every milestone along this road because it made me who I am. This book Knight on the Texas Plains was inspired by a true event from my childhood when I learned my playmate had been won in a poker game. Although I was only about ten or eleven years old, I was shocked and I promised myself that one day I’d give her a happy life even it was in fiction. I think she’d be pleased.

    This is the first book of my Texas Heroes series. it first released in 2002. Book #2 The Cowboy Who Came Calling (also a re-issue) comes out in Feb. 2018.) I’m very happy Sourcebooks allowed me to write the third book to finish this series–baby Marley Rose’s story when she’s grown–and it comes out in July 2018. Marley Rose is shattered to learn the secret Duel has kept all those years. She feels her whole life has been a lie.

    Thanks again for having me. I look forward to seeing you down the road with other book tours.

    Love your scrapbook, Linda. All Texans and those who love Country Musoc Stars will be so impressed that Willie Nelson read your book. I hope he read all of it. If he did, I am sure he wpuld be hooked on your writing because you wrote Romance, but you are a master Western storyteller who adds in stories reminiscent of the greats like L’Amour and Grey!
