Winning Maura’s Heart
by Linda Broday

A handsome stranger on her doorstep!

Texas, 1876. Maura Taggart is an outcast. She is the daughter of a hangman and tainted by association – no reputable man would ever want her as his wife. And now she is homeless, along with her sister and the group of children in their care. But Maura has grit. She finds a nearby mission where the nuns agree to take them in and set up an orphanage. But trouble is just around the corner . . .

The Calhoun brothers are identical twins but on opposite sides of the law. Cutter is a deputy Marshal, Jonas an outlaw. When Cutter attempts to break his brother out of a notorious gang, they are shot, and Maura finds one of them wounded, close to the mission – but which brother is it?

As the stranger regains his strength under Maura’s care an attraction between them grows, but there’s a question over his identity. Can he be trusted and why has his presence brought danger to their door? With the orphanage under threat can Maura trust this handsome stranger both with their safety and with her heart?

Linda Broday

Linda Broday is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of over thirty historical western romance novels and short stories. A third generation Texan, she finds lots of inspiration for her fictional cowboys on the West Texas short grass plains. She grew up watching TV westerns and fell in love with the strong men and women who settled this wild country. Those TV episodes, visits to museums, and countless books taught her the values, the strength it took to survive and the tremendous will to keep going when things got tough. On a still day, she swears she can often hear the voices of ancestors whispering in the wind. Writing is her passion and drives her to keep penning stories that focus heavily on children and family. In her family, she’s the storyteller, the one who records ancestral history. Linda comes from a long line of poor but prideful people and she’s happy with that. It’s her legacy.
