Ballad Beauty



After years apart, schoolmarm Jenny receives a letter from her father which instructs her to join him in Texas. However, she has no idea that he’s become Famous Sam McShan, the Robin Hood of the West. Unfortunately, she arrives to find Sam already gone. However, he left instructions for Jenny to hire a guide and rendezvous with him in Nevada.

Texas Ranger Noah Daniel Webster knows Sam personally because his father, Pistol Pete Webber, was Sam’s longtime partner in crime. When Pete is killed during their last big score, Noah requests the assignment to bring Sam to justice. Going undercover, he volunteers to act as Jenny’s escort across the dangerous prairie. He uses her to track her outlaw father’s location.

As they journey through rough country, love blossoms—but Noah knows the second he arrests Sam, his betrayal will kill Jenny’s love for him. Should the lawman do his duty as a Ranger, or should he let love rule? The choice Noah makes will change their lives forever.

Book Reviews:

“Overall this was an enjoyable read and I look forward to reading future books by Ms. Linwood. If you like stories with action and romance, then Ballad Beauty will be one you’ll want to read. Happy reading!”

“The attraction and building love between the main characters is swoon-worthy. Grab a beverage, some snacks, maybe a couple of tissues and get ready for a thrilling and compelling story. It will curl your toes and warm you heart! Enjoy, because I certainly did.”

“The second a new Lauren Linwood book comes out, I know I’m in for a treat. And Ballad Beauty is a book that kept me HATING whenever I had to put it down. It was so good!!”

“Betrayal, crime, redemption and romance run rampant in this story and, as a result, it’s so hard to put down. With two compelling leads and a cast of colorful characters filling its pages, this novel is a must read. I can’t wait for Ms. Linwood’s next classic!”
