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…

A tomboy out of necessity, Willa had never had a beau and never expected to at this great age, though she’d once cherished such romantic hopes.

The thought of the handsome stranger circled around in her head like a pleasant dream. Pleasant, yes, but too much trouble. Whiskey at nine in the morning?

Then there was Papa, always looking for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and full of wanderlust without a bit of sense for money. The fact that he’d come west for the ’89 Land Run and then promptly headed for the rumored gold discovery was proof of that.

Men, in general, did not impress.

The Malone sisters were on their own.

Mercy’s doctoring was usually repaid with jars of jam or a slab of meat. Rarely a coin crossed her palm. Savannah had her mending.

Willa, as usual, felt useless. She’d tried hiring out to farmers. She could plow and plant and work cattle as well as any man, but her offers were refused. After all, she was naught but a woman.

She took heart that in a few years’ time the homestead would supply their needs.

But they didn’t have a few years. The bank loan hung over their heads like a noose.

Her gaze fell to the wanted poster.

Suddenly, a new resolve came over Willa. A chance to finally and forever have a home of her own that no one could take away. A chance to avenge her father’s death.

“I’m going after him.”

“What? Who?” Two furrows appeared between Mercy’s sleek ginger eyebrows. “Whatever are you talking about, Willa?”

“Him. Charlie Bangs.” She stabbed a finger against the outlaw’s handlebar mustache. “I’m going after Papa’s murderer.”
