She wasn’t looking for a family

But one seems to have found her! Madison Belle can’t have children and has resigned herself to a solo life running her family’s ranch. That’s before she finds a young girl and her baby brother hiding out in her barn…and before she meets their tough but tender father.

As the only law in High Cotton, Texas, Walker is struggling mightily to juggle his job with single parenthood. But his kids need a mother, and Maddie has a way of making them all feel like a family again. The beautiful rancher is even starting to make Walker believe in miracles. Until his ex-wife shows up, claiming to be carrying his child…

Does Maddie have what it takes to fight for the man-and the family- she loves?

Walker smiled that gorgeous grin and Maddie’s knees felt weak.

They weakened more as his eyes traveled over her.

“Do you know how good you look?”

“I just put on warm clothes.”

“They’re certainly warming me up.”

She thumbed toward the fireplace. “It’s the fire.”

“Not unless it has blue, blue eyes, a curvy body and blond hair.”

They stared at each other for a long moment. Almost in slow motion his hand circled her neck and pulled her forward. His lips touched hers tentatively at first and then the warmth of the room, the warmth of each other engulfed them.

Rave Reviews

“MADISON’S CHILDREN (4.5) by Linda Warren: When Madison finds town constable Walker’s kids in her barn, she gets on the phone to the lawman. Having been attracted to him since their first meeting, Maddie is determined to help him with his children, who are increasingly troubled since their mother ran off with another man. This charming tale looks at the power of love to heal wounds. Both Maddie and Walker have obstacles to overcome, and Warren’s depiction of their healing is spot on.”
-Alexandra Kay

“MADISON’S CHILDREN bubbles over with love that is given without reservations for and to all from Gran Dorothea to baby Valentine and all the others in between.  Linda Warren gives us a truly “feel-good” romance that I stayed up late to finish.”
Long and Short Reviews –Camellia

“MADISON’S CHILDREN is a continuation of award winning author Linda Warren’s Belles of Texas series set on the rolling range of Texas, in the small community of High Cotton. Ms. Warren has a hit on her hands with this series’ engaging characters with their frailties and problems that tug at our heart strings. She crafts her story with her unique voice that entertains all readers of romance.”
