On her way to town early one morning, Marley Rose McClain finds a man unconscious and bleeding at the side of the road. She loads him in the wagon and takes him to her family ranch.

Drifter Roan Penny fights for his life, his one goal eating at him—to find the ones who murdered his best friend. As he recovers, he finds himself falling in love with Marley. She’s everything he wants and dreams of making her his wife even as he knows it’s impossible.

A terrifying stranger appears and a long-kept secret shakes Marley to the core. Roan helps her through very frightening times and they pledge their love for each other.

As Roan hunts down the hooded men who killed his friend and grows closer to learning the truth of the stranger’s identity, he finds both himself and Marley being stalked.

Shocking events unfold, secrets come to light, and a love refuses to be denied in this cat and mouse game where danger lurks around every corner. Will Roan and Marley survive to see the future they plan?

Sometimes a series comes along that takes on a life of its own and that was the case with Texas Heroes. They’re about the McClain family, their struggles and joy as they carve out a life for themselves in 1800s Texas. Each of these stories resonate with readers of all ages.

Knight on the Texas Plains – Book #1 – Duel McClain wins a baby in a poker game and she gives him a reason to live. That night camped outside of town, Jessie Foltry, stumbles into his camp covered in blood. He makes a deal with her—her help with the child in exchange for taking her wherever she wants to go. That baby girl gives both Duel and Jessie a reason to live.

The Cowboy Who Came Calling – Book #2 – Luke McClain has been framed for a crime he didn’t commit and on the trail of the man responsible when a beautiful woman shoots him. Glory Day takes him home to patch up and he discovers she’s slowly losing her eyesight. She’s the sole support of her mother and sisters so he has to help—even if Glory doesn’t want it.

To Catch a Texas Star – Book #3 – Marley Rose McClain, the baby from the first book, is grown up and looking for love. One morning, she finds drifter Roan Penny badly wounded. As she nurses him back to health, she falls in love with him. But secrets threaten to destroy her happiness and danger lies around every corner. Will a stranger take their lives before Marley and Roan reach their dream?   

Linda is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of full length historical western romance novels and novellas. She’s published over twenty books and short stories and resides in the Texas Panhandle on land the American Indian and Comancheros once roamed. On a quiet day, she can often hear their voices whispering in the wind. 

The love of this state and its people runs bone deep and she instills that into each book she writes. She sets all her stories in Texas because of the rich history and interesting people.

A mother, grandmother, and soon to be a great grandmother, Linda finds research fascinating and always looks for little known tidbits to add realism to her stories. When she’s not writing, she collects old coins and confesses to being a rock hound in addition to making herself a nuisance at museums, libraries, and historical places which inspire her.

  1. Kristine, thank you for putting together an exciting tour and letting me tell readers about my brand new book To Catch a Texas Star. This is the perfect ending to a series about men who stood tall and fought injustice wherever they found it. I'm so passionate about these McClains. And Marley Rose got hers as well. I couldn't have told these stories better. I hope readers will discover this for themselves.

    1. Linda, it is ALWAYS a pleasure to promote your books -- no one is ever disappointed with your stories.
