Release Day Review: A Man of Legend by Linda Broday

Series: Lone Star Legends #3 Genres: Historical Western Romance

Famous across Texas, the Legends stand ready to take on any challenge that comes their way...

Crockett Legend has always loved Paisley Mahone, but a family feud sure can ruin a romance. When her father waged a war against the Legends, Paisley took her father's side. They've never seen eye to eye, and the rift widened when Paisley's brother was killed in prison--after being sentenced by none other than Crockett.

Now Paisley's father is dead too, and she's headed home to mourn with the rest of her family when she runs into Crockett on the train. But when the train is held up by outlaws, it comes to Crockett and Paisley to save a young shooting victim. She never thought being close to Crockett could make her feel anything but revulsion ever again, but some second changes are worth the risk...

A Man of Legend is the third book in the Lone Star Legends series. The main character Crockett is Houston and Lara's son, whose story was told in The Heart of a Texas Cowboy. The majority of this book takes place on the Lone Star Ranch, so you'll see a lot of familiar faces appear if you've read any of Linda Broday's other books. It was such a delight to see how everyone was doing and I could really feel the love between all the members of the Legend family. This book is a second-chance historical western romance. Paisley Mahone is Crockett's love interest. They broke up when both of them went their own ways to pursue a career. Crockett became a judge and Paisley a nurse. At the start of this book, Paisley doesn't want anything to do with Crockett because she thinks he had something to do with all the bad things that have been happening to her family. However, the longer she's is around him the more she can't deny the feelings she still has for him. Crockett is straightforward and tells Paisley that he never forgot her and decides to pursue her.

A Man of Legend was a great addition to the series and I enjoyed being reunited and seeing what all my favorite characters were up to. I also loved the banter between Crockett and Paisley, and thought they were a great match. Paisley is a strong and independent woman, and I really enjoyed seeing her protect her family. This book was fun and romantic, but it also had a couple of action-packed scenes that had me on the edge of my seat. Linda Broday is always able to find the right balance between romance and suspense. She is able to keep me intrigued and hooked until the end. I am also always very connected to the characters and feel like a part of their family. Linda has become one of the authors whose books I automatically pick up without having to read what the book is about. There aren't many authors on that list so I really enjoy the stories Linda writes and trust her to deliver great plots and characters every time. I already look forward to her next book.
