Review: Knight on the Texas Plains (Texas Heroes #1) by Linda Broday

Title: Knight on the Texas PlainsSeries: Texas Heroes #1Author: Linda BrodayPublisher: Publication Date: (re-release August 1st 2017 by Sourcebooks Casablanca) 
Book Description:

Duel McClain was no knight in shining armor --- he was a drifter who prided himself on having no responsibilities. But a poker game thrust him into the role of father to an abandoned baby, and then a condemned woman stumbled up to his campfire. The fugitive beauty aimed to keep him at shotgun's length, but obvious maternal instincts belied her fierce demeanor. And she and the baby were clearly made for each other. Worse, the innocent infant and the alleged murderess opened Duel's heart, made him long for the love of a real family. And the only way to have that would be to slay the demons of the past. 

My Review: 


I am not sure what I was expecting when I started reading Knight on the Texas Plains. Besides Diana Palmer, I've actually read very few western romances. This one is set in the past as well so, historical western romance. The description of this book made me want to pick it up ASAP though!

The book starts off a bit slow as you delve into the past and the western world but it quickly picks up the pace when our hero, Duel, gains a baby by the name of Marley Rose in a poker game. Not long after he picks up another stray, Jessie. Unlike the babe though Jessie is more of a mystery, and one covered in blood.

However, as a man who has no clue what he is doing with a baby Jessie is a godsend-- Duel doesn't think twice about asking to tag along with him to his old town of Tranquility. It's obvious something bad has befallen her.

Jessie was an incredibly strong woman who had more will than most to survive. How she did, and not come out of it crazy or just plain mean or meek is amazing. She is super compassionate and even though she is skittish at first it becomes obvious that there is a spark between her and Duel.

Jessie is not the only one with a past though and it is not easy for Duel to overcome his either.

I was crying by the end! More than once author Linda Braday had me tearing up with the love and hardships these two have to overcome. I could not have asked for a better ending, and I am looking forward to reading more by her!

I would recommend Knight on the Texas Plains to anyone who is a Diana Palmer fan. In a way it puts off the same vibe but it is also historical so you get the best of both world! I will be adding book two to my bookshelf!
