4 stars-- To Love a Texas Ranger (Men of Legend #1) by Linda Broday

Soo. Yall know I don't read blurbs. And for a while I kept thinking oh please be a menage!
"Weston, tell me this: Why were you on the train?"

"Wanted to make sure you got home. Knew you were still struggling, that you couldn't do your job. In the months of you chasing me and having to use all my wits to stay free... I don't know... I guess a bond of some sort or another formed. The chase became the game."

It certainly hadn't been a game to Sam. But Luke was right about growing close. Something deeper ran between them. "You noticed it too? The bond, I mean?"

"Yep." Luke licked his dry lips.  
I mean, seriously!! Tell me. Would you be thinking...mmhm. We're gonna have some historical naughtiness right here. lol But, yeah, no. Totally innocent on that front. Heh. Anywho...

The Gist: Sam's been forced to take some time off from being a Texas Ranger after a near death experience. But saving people? It's in his blood. When a damsel in distress crosses his path there's no way he can turn her down even if it means taking on the help of the outlaw he's spent years hunting to do so.

I loved this trio. Sam, Sierra and Luke are all a bit damaged and broken by life. And all dealing the best they can and fighting to survive. Sam's honorable and just a good man struggling after a nearly dying. Sierra's full of heart and strength. Luke's a complicated law breaker who tries his best to hid his good side.

It was a bit harrowing watching them cross Texas as they make their way to Sam's family ranch and safety. Dangers everywhere including those hunting Sierra. I enjoyed my time with them and watching them interact during their travels and while dealing with the pain and comfort family can bring.

Sam and Sierra's romance was sweet and touching. Slow burning and lovely to watch as they grow closer and start to heal. There's just a little bit of heat added in, too.

Overall, I enjoyed To Love a Texas Ranger. It's a bit slower paced even though there's danger lurking everywhere and things are...eventful during their travels. But it was an easy read that pulled me along and entertained. There were some nice surprises and teasers that have me excited to spend a little more time with the Legend men.

Gravely injured on the trail of a notorious criminal, Texas Ranger Sam Legend boards a train bound for his family ranch to recuperate...only to find himself locked in battle to save a desperate woman on the run. Determined to rescue the beautiful Sierra, Sam recruits an unlikely ally. But can he trust the mysterious gunslinger to fight at his side?

Sam is shocked to discover his new ally is not only an outlaw, but his half-brother. Torn between loyalty to his job and love of his family, Sam goes reeling straight into Sierra's arms. Yet just as the walls around his battered heart begin to crumble, Sierra is stolen away. Sam will risk anything to save her-his life, his badge, his very soul-knowing that some bonds are stronger than the law...and some legends were born to be told.
