Contemporary Western Romance

Descendents of the legendary McKettrick family, the Creeds are renowned in Stillwater Springs, Montana—for raising hell…
After years of wandering, Logan Creed, a cowboy with a dusty law degree, has returned home. To put down roots, to restore his family’s neglected ranch… to have kids of his own proudly bearing the Creed name.

Divorced mom Briana Grant has heard the stories about her gorgeous neighbor. So Logan’s kindness with her young boys is a welcome surprise, especially when her ex reappears. And when an unknown enemy vandalizes her home, Logan shows Briana—and the folks of Big Sky country—just what he’s made of.

Meet the Creed cowboys of Montana: three estranged brothers who come home to find family—and love.

My Review
It starts out in the Present Day and takes place in Still water Springs. Logan is the oldest of three sons of a drunk and hard father, Jake Creed. After Jake is killed all of the three sons leave Stillwater Springs. Logan has a law degree, taking a active role as a rodeo cowboy, and ends up getting married twice and divorced, and coming to the realization that he wants to turn his life around. The Creed's are descendants of the McKettrick Clan. For many years, the Creed's haven't had a legacy like the McKettricks have had, and Logan makes the decisions to make that happen. On his way home however, he comes upon a abandoned and poor dog and Logan against his better judgement decides to take him in. He then comes to his ranch and walks to the cemetery where his mother is buried and comes upon a young women with two young boys and a dog.

Briana Grant is divorced with two young boys, Josh and Alec. She works at the local Casino with a management position, takes care of Dylan Creed's home in exchange for being able to live there, and home schooling her children. Briana thinks her life is going pretty good, every now and then she takes her boys to the cemetery and they weed and take care of it, and have a picnic. She then notices a handsome, man who captures her attention in that same cemetery and she knew her life would never be the same. As Briana and Dylan get to know each, a unsuspecting danger will come and sneak upon them.

As I was reading Logan's story, I was utterly entranced into the catpivating story in Montana. I have always loved Montana, the valleys and mountains are gorgeous, and Miller portrayed it so well, the story was made alive within the readers eyes. The main characters were vivid and enthralling. The plot was filled with love, passion, mysterious intrigue, and a story that kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. Although it did have some parts in it that were confusing, and weren't eventually explained, and there were some of the relationships between the main characters and sub characters that I felt should have been more connected. But overall it was a well written and enjoyable read. I am looking forward to read Dylan's story next.

My Grade for this book is: 
4 Blossoms

Others books in the series:
