Claiming Her Legacy

Title: Claiming Her Legacy

Author: Linda Goodnight

Publisher: Harlequin Love Inspired Trade

Release Date: April 26, 2022

Genre: Inspirational Historical Romance

With her family’s legacy on the line, a woman with everything to lose must rely on a man hiding from his past…

Oklahoma, 1890

Frontier women don’t ride off alone to track an outlaw—not even women as capable as tomboy spinster Willa Malone. But Willa desperately needs the bounty money offered for her father’s killer if she’s to keep their homestead and take care of her sisters. That means she needs an expert tracker's help. Gideon Hartley has the skill, but the handsome trail guide also has a troubling secret…

Gideon has spent years trying to numb his pain with whiskey. Little by little, their quest—and Willa’s belief in him—is restoring the sense of purpose he thought he’d lost. Journeying into the heart of danger, they’ll have to face down the past together if they hope to protect their future…

My Thoughts

I am so very happy to see that Love Inspired is publishing the historical line again, even though it is only temporary. The Historical line is what drew me to read Love Inspired books. Now, they are publishing full length trade books. You will get the same Clean, Christian books, but at full length. 

Claiming Her Legacy is written by Linda Goodnight. It is set back in 1890 Oklahoma. Willa and her two sisters, Mercy and Savannah are struggling to keep their family farm afloat after their father is murdered. Willa, the tomboy and headstrong of the sisters, wants to hunt down her father's killer so that they can collect the bounty that is on his head and save their farm. Willa, does not know a thing about tracking nor the danger that awaits her. 

Gideon is a seasoned trail guide. He is in Sweet Clover numbing the pain of his past with whiskey. When he is first approached to be Willa's guide, he tells her no way, and she is crazy for wanting to do so. However,  Gideon is captivated by Willa. He is battling his own demons and does not feel he is worthy to protect her on the journey. Eventually, he agrees 

The journey that these two take is quite the interesting one. Willa is learning so much and she is tough. Gideon is battling nightmares and trying to keep them both safe. The book is well written, the characters are well developed. This was a great Western Historical Romance. The author has done a fine job with her descriptions of scenes. I love when I can close my eyes and see what I am reading. 

I would love to see the sister's story continue. I am hoping that the author writes their stories also. 

Thank you to the publisher, author, NetGalley and JustRead Publicity tours for allowing me to read a copy of this book. All thoughts are my own.
