Review and Giveaway: The Creed Legacy by Linda Lael Miller

First line: Ranching, Brody Creed thought, shifting in the saddle as he surveyed the sprawling range land from a high ridge.

From the back cover: Rough-and-tumble rodeo cowboy Brody Creed like life on the move. Until a chance encounter with his long-estranged twin brother brings him "home" for the first time in years. Suddenly Brody is in Creed territory - at thirty-three, he's a restless bad boy among family with deep ties to the land and each other. And a secret past haunts him as he tries to make plans for his future.

Carolyn Simmons is looking for Mr. Right in Lonesome Bend, as the ticktock of her biological clock gets ever louder. Then she falls for gorgeous Brody Creed, the opposite of everything she wants. Until lassoing his wild heart becomes everything both of them need.

My thoughts: This is the third in the Creed Cowboy series (which is, in fact, part of her Montana Creeds series) and it was a fun, quick read. I had never read anything by Linda Lael Miller before reading this trilogy and I have to say that I enjoy her writing and I can see myself going back and reading some of her earlier works.

The Creed Legacy is a story of second chance love. Filled with doubts about herself stemming from years as a neglected foster child, Carolyn cannot allow herself to trust. Brody must come to terms with a secret that up until now, he's been unable to discuss and he must set aside his guilt in order to be the man Carolyn needs. Watching Brody and Carolyn dance around their feelings was quite emotional at times and of course, all the matchmaking attempts of busybody neighbors, friends and family only added to their story. In time, they both realize that "everything worth doing involves risk." We also get to catch up with some old friends as well as meet some new ones in this story. Seeing Conner become the overprotective father-to-be was touching as well as comical at times. I enjoyed getting to know the Creed men and women and hope to read about them again soon!
