Linda Lael Miller – The McKettricks



Meet The McKettricks of Texas: 

Tate, Austin and Garrett, A new generation of McKettrick men who stake their claim to their land – and the women they love.



Each morning shortly after the sun rises over Spokane, Washington, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author author Linda Lael Miller pulls on her cowboy boots and heads for the stables for a few quiet moments with her horses before she settles in to write her pages for the day.

As the daughter of a town marshal, Linda has come home to the western lifestyle that gave birth to one of today’s most successful authors. With more than 80 novels to her credit, the self-confessed barn goddess left Washington years ago and pursued her wanderlust, living in Arizona and London and traveling the world. But now the “First Lady of the West” is glad to be back home, writing contemporary and historical novels that have earned her awards and placements on all the national bestsellers lists.

This month Linda is excitedly anticipating spending more time with her current favorite cowboys, Tate, Austin and Garrett, the McKettricks of Texas.


She says:

My Dear Reader Friends,

It’s a new year—and a new decade; what an amazing prospect!

LLMlindalaelmiller(157x157)I’m so looking forward to the possibilities that this brings. I’m immersed in my art and have even pulled out my old sewing machine to explore quilting. I’m also excitedly anticipating spending more time with my current favorite cowboys, the McKettricks of Texas: Tate, Austin and Garrett. Look for McKettricks of Texas: Tate   on sale January 26.

Linda Lael Miller


Linda has come a long way since leaving Washington to experience the world. “But growing up in that time and place, in a family grounded in Western values, served me well,” she allows. “And I’m happy to be back home.”


About the first book:



For divorced dad Tate McKettrick, there are barely enough hours each day to run the Silver Spur ranch, do the suit-and-tie thing for his business and run herd on his beloved six-year-old daughters. But time stands still at the sight of Libby Remington. When they were high school sweethearts, the wealthy McKettrick made a mistake that cost him the love of his life. But now they’re both back in Blue River, Texas. And cattle rustlers, a manipulative ex-wife and a killer stallion can’t keep Tate from trying to win Libby again.

Libby has her hands full caring for her mother and running the Perk Up Coffee Shop. Caffeine she needs. Tate McKettrick—with his blazing blue eyes and black hair. No way! Oh, heck—yes! But can Tate and Libby really hope for a second chance?

  11. great video by the way; I love me a cowboy(story that is)and the hero in the story.

    I’m snickering thinking what gossip I’d bring on if I wore that T-shirt. LOL. Rubs hands in glee.
    I come from cowboy country where there are rodeos, brandings, ranches, trail rides.

  12. Linda,
    Love your books. They are very popular at our library. We make sure we get them on the shelves as soon as possible. If we don’t, our patrons let us know about it. I look forward to reading more about your McKettricks.
    By the way, thank you for your wonderful scholarship program. It is such a wonderful thing. Many women want to improve themselves and just need a little help and support. Congratulations on truly worthwhile program.

  13. I have read almost all your books at least once, some more. My only compaint is the cover of Garrett’s book. If Garrett has dark blonde hair in the book why is the cover of the book show a man with very dark hair?

  14. I have read most of your books including the Creeds, all the McKettricks, those of Old,Now & Texas. I cannot wait until you finally join the Creeds and the McKettricks nexy year. The trailers are great, with only one thing wrong you have two Garrets one is blonde(like the character in the book) and one the book cover Garret has dark hair. Love all your books and and can”t wait for more.
