Book 3 in the Brides with Grit series is now available!

Hilda Hogties a Horseman by Linda K. Hubalek

She bought his homestead out from under him with her horse race winnings…and now he wants it back!

Hilda Hogties a Horseman the third book in my new historical western romance series, Brides with Grit, is now available on Amazon in both ebook and paperback.

This clean, sweet historical romance set in 1873, continues the story of the Wilerson and Hamner families as the meet and marry on the Kansas prairie.

Ranch woman Hilda Hamner spent her youth traveling with her Swedish immigrant family as they drove cattle from Texas up to Kansas cow towns in the 1870s. Hilda decided to get off the cattle trail and bought an abandoned homestead in Kansas with her horse race winnings. She plans on raising horses—and finding a husband that doesn’t mind her tall, lanky body that’s usually dressed in men’s clothing.

Noah Wilerson planned to bring his intended bride from Illinois back to the Kansas homestead he started for them, but found out his fiancée had already married someone else when arriving at her father’s doorstep. After traveling back home, Noah finds a woman has taken over his claim, leaving him homeless and jobless.

Hilda realizes she needs help to make her horse ranch successful, and decides that Noah is the right man—to promote from horseman to husband on her ranch—if he’ll treat her as a special woman, and not just a ranching partner.

Noah wants his homestead back, and the woman who has transformed the simple soddie into a family home. Between family dramas, outlaw danger, and butting heads, which one will hogtie the other to get to the church altar first?

Enjoy my latest story about women living and loving on the Kansas prairie!

Next in line will be Cora Captures a Cowboy. Look for it later this spring.

New Book Release- Rania Ropes a Rancher

Written by lindahubalek on . Posted in Blog, Brides with Grit series, western romance

A new book, a new series, and new genre.

Rania Ropes a RancherRania Ropes a Rancher, the first book in my new historical western romance series, Brides with Grit, debuts at midnight tonight.

I smile every time I think “I just finished writing my twelfth book!”

It’s a long process for me to go from an idea to the finished book. I start writing the story—and the characters take over. Their dialogue continues in my brain during my dreams, on walks…and usually when I’m not right at my computer so I have to remember them later and try to reconstruct their conversations.

And then the editor makes some suggestions on her first read through…and the characters throw in another thought or two…but that’s the joy of creative writing, it just keeps flowing and adding to the story line.

I knew the series name I wanted to use, but the individual titles did not come to me until—crediting my editor again —she made a suggestion, which triggered my thoughts in a new direction.

If I change Greta’s name to Rania…the title could be Rania Ropes a Rancher.

So the first book in the Brides with Grit debuts tomorrow, and I have the titles and story lines for the next seven books outlined too. My mind has already written half of Millie Marries a Marshal. Now my fingers need to get busy typing Millie’s story.

Please download the ebook verison or order the paperback to start the story of the Wilerson and Hamner families. The year is 1873 and the setting is near the famous cowtown of Ellsworth, Kansas.

Enjoy my latest story about women living on the Kansas prairie!
