The Parable Series Volume 1
by Linda Lael Miller

#1 New York Times bestselling author Linda Lael Miller cordially invites you to Parable, Montana — where restless hearts get a second chance at love…

Big Sky Country
(originally published May 2012 and May 2015 in mass market paperback and August 2020 eBook)

The illegitimate son of a wealthy rancher, Sheriff Slade Barlow was never acknowledged by his father…until now. Suddenly, Slade has inherited half of Whisper Creek Ranch, one of the most prosperous in Parable County. That doesn’t sit well with his half-brother, Hutch, who grew up with all the rights of a Carmody, including the affections of Joslyn Kirk, homecoming queen, rodeo queen, beauty queen—and the girl Slade’s never forgotten. Along with a town to protect, Slade already has his hands full but Joslyn is hard to ignore…

Big Sky Mountain
(originally published July 2012 in mass market paperback and eBook and September 2020 in eBook)

With his rugged good looks, vast wealth and family name, hell-raiser Hutch Carmody is still the golden boy of Parable, Montana. But he’s done some growing up—making peace with his illegitimate half-brother and inheriting half of Whisper Creek Ranch, which should have been all his. And these days, Hutch knows there are some things money can’t buy: like the heart of loving divorcée Kendra Shepherd. Then again, even the most unlikely dreams can come true under the vast Montana sky.

Big Sky River
(originally published December 2012 and August 2018 in mass market paperback & eBook and 10-12-20 in eBook)

Sheriff Boone Taylor has two kids he adores, his job, a run-down but decent ranch, two faithful dogs and a good horse. He doesn’t want romance—the widowed Montanan has loved and lost enough for a lifetime. But when city girl, Tara Kendall, buys the spread next door, Boone’s peace and quiet are in serious jeopardy. Life along Big Sky River is full of surprises…like a cowboy-lawman who just might start to believe in second chances.

Linda Lael Miller's Bio

The daughter of a town marshal, Linda Lael Miller is a #1 New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author of more than 100 historical and contemporary novels, most of which reflect her love of the West. Raised in Northport, Washington, Linda pursued her wanderlust, living in London and Arizona and traveling the world before returning to the state of her birth to settle down on a horse property outside Spokane. Linda traces the birth of her writing career to the day when a Northport teacher told her that the stories she was writing were good, that she just might have a future in writing. Later, when she decided to write novels, she endured her share of rejection before she sold Fletcher's Woman in 1983 to Pocket Books. Since then, Linda has successfully published historicals, contemporaries, paranormals, mysteries and thrillers before coming home, in a literal sense, and concentrating on novels with a Western flavor. For her devotion to her craft, the Romance Writers of America awarded her their prestigious Nora Roberts Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007. Hallmark Movie Channel is developing a series based on Linda's Big Sky Country novels. Her latest book, Forever a Hero, a March 21, 2017 HQN Books release, is the third in her Carsons of Mustang Creek series. Her first mainstream Civil War novel will be published in May 2018. Dedicated to helping others, "The First Lady of the West" personally financed fifteen years of her Linda Lael Miller Scholarships for Women, which she awarded to women 25 years and older who were seeking to improve their lot in life through education. She anticipates that her next charitable endeavors will benefit four-legged critters.
