Note i received this book through netgalley.com for my honest opinion and review.
Creed's Honor due out May 31, 2011
I've been a fan of Linda Lael Miller's for quite some time. I think it started when i read one of the McKettrick books with the four original brothers Holt, Rafe, Kade and Jeb (love those names). After i finished those i started looking at the rest of her books and have enjoyed quite a few. She is the very best at writing cowboys i think. Creed's Honor is the 2nd in her latest cowboy trilogy. If you've read Linda at all you know this is not her first trilogy of book on the wonderful Creed men. One of the things i like about her books is they inter-relate is some way fashion or form and i love those glimpses you get to past character from other books. A Creed in Stone Creek is the first in this series and i reviewed in here on the blog here. In that one we met Steven Creed cousin the Creed twin brothers Connor and Brody. We get to see a little of Steven and his now wife Melissa with his new family in Creed's Honor. In this book we get to focus on Connor Creed. Connor and his twin brother Brody parted ways years ago over a incident with a girl. Connor is the responsible brother and stayed in Lonesome Bend Colorado to run the family ranch while his twin just runs wild. No one really is sure where Brody's been or what he's been doing.
Connor Creed knows exactly who he is: a hard-working rancher carrying on his uncle’s legacy in Lonesome Bend, Colorado. Maybe a small-town cowboy’s life isn’t his dream, but he owes the man who took him in as a kid. Until the identical twin brother he’s been estranged from for years reenters his life.
Connor struggles with identity issues as he gets to know his wilder brother. And then he meets Tricia McCall, a beautiful woman who knows a thing or two about living someone else’s dreams. Together, they just might find their own dreams right here in Lonesome Bend…
I liked Steven well enough but i think so far Connor is my favorite in this series. Connor Creed is the responsible twin and runs the family ranch. He seems pretty content with his life even though something is missing. Tricia McCall has put her life on hold to come to Lonesome Bend to sell her fathers property a old Drive in and lodge or sorts. He saved the land and businesses for her thinking they would be worth alot of money someday and he'd have left her something worthwhile. No one seems to want to buy the property though until Connor twin brother Brody arrives and announces he's sticking around for good and bids on the property. Connor and Tricia slowly get close and you wonder if Tricia's going to stick around for Connor or leave once the property is sold. I like how in this and the first book in the series you get the seeds to the next book. In this one you get a peak here and there into the third book "The Creed Legacy" Brody's book. Lovin the cowboys! Check out this book and all the books related to this series here on Linda Lael Miller's website. I give Creed's Honor 4 out of 5 Modokker Book Pick stars. Another great bowboy romance for Linda lael Miller.
