In Courting Miss Emma by Linda Broday, Emma Taggart, who runs Heaven's Door orphanage in 1868 Texas, faces challenges when Stone Landry, a guarded ex-army man, becomes her neighbor. Their connection is tested by violent raids and a powerful rancher, Zeke Parker. Emma must find the courage to trust Stone and secure the life she dreams of.

Courting Miss Emma is the second book in the Hangman's Daughters series, focusing on Emma, the younger Taggart sister. She's dedicated to running their orphanage and is known for her stubborn and cautious nature due to her past. Stone, her neighbor, has his own issues and isn't keen on starting a family. Their first encounter is quite entertaining, with some great banter.

The side characters were all amazing. Each of them added an extra layer to the story and were incorporated greatly into the narrative. I also liked how all the characters joined forces to defend their homes, adding some thrilling action to the story. While I would've appreciated a bit more romance, it didn't ruin the experience.

Linda Broday is excellent at crafting action-packed historical western romances that grab your attention right away. Her stories and characters are consistently captivating, which is why I always look forward to her new releases. I have complete trust in her ability to deliver engaging tales.
