Western Style Hat & ONCE A RANCHER:

Western Style Hat & ONCE A RANCHER:

The sun can be blazing hot at the end of summer, and Linda learned a long time ago it’s smart to protect your face from the harmful rays. So for her August prize she is giving away this fun, physician-endorsed women’s estancia hat. (In the U.S. estancia translates as “ranch.”) The stylish and packable hat can be shaped in Western style (Linda’s choice) or, by adjusting the memory wire in the brim, as a Fedora. The hat is rated UPF 50+ for maximum sun protection—and will come with a copy of the launch book in Linda’s Carsons of Mustang Creek series, ONCE A RANCHER. Three other readers will receive a copy of the fan favorite book.

In October, Linda will treat her readers to the second book in her Carsons of Mustang Creek series, ALWAYS A COWBOY.

On Sale August 30, 2016, but available for pre-order now!


Drake is the middle of the three Carson brothers, in charge of the family ranch. Lately, managing the wild stallions on his property is wearing him down. When an interfering so-called expert arrives and starts offering her opinion, Drake is wary, but he can’t deny the longing—and the challenge—she stirs in him.

Luce Hale is researching how wild horses interact with ranch animals—and with ranchers. The Carson matriarch invites her to stay with the family, which guarantees frequent encounters with Drake, her ruggedly handsome, stubborn and decidedly unwelcoming son. Luce and Drake are at odds from the very beginning, especially when it comes to the rogue stallion who’s stealing the ranch mares. But when Drake believes Luce is in danger, that changes everything—for both of them.
