Would love to read more of how things are going now with the Creed Brothers!! The two main characters meet, have a long night of hot? Except standing on the same patch of land as his estranged brothers. It's youngest brother Tyler Creed's turn to take center stage in this book. And I still skip the sex scenes, so I can't comment on those, can only say there were just a few. And one day magic happens. I have a problem there! But that has changed, and she's back, needing to right some wrongs, even though she wasn't to blame. Boone and Tara are endearing, they are human and they make human mistakes.
I was blushing while reading it. Linda exploresthat turbulent time in The Yankee Widow. She was rich, priviledged and, admittedly spoiled. In 2007, the Romance Writers of America presented her their Lifetime Achievement Award. I took a moment just now to peruse some of the other reviews of this book.
They both made sense throughout the book, which I appreciate, as consistency helps a story to be believable to me. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. Maybe 13 years ago that would have been acceptable, but what's wrong with a no-tell motel for the 30-something duo? It's like the author can't bear to write in any sort of struggles for her characters, and we the readers end up suffering for it. Lily returns home to Chicago to sort out her affairs and get things ready to move. But I love this familiar aura in those books. While he has friends who support him and a community that believes in him, he remains in an eternal funk. Tyler asks Lily out, and before you know it, he's asked her to marry him.
We meet him in the parking lot of Walmart where he is swapping his brand new Escalade for an old man's This was my first book by Linda Lael Miller and I'm not quite sure what I should say. I know she has written a zillion books so I'm aware she is quite popular but this one. It took me forever to be able to tell the two half-brothers, Slade and Hutch, apart. Considering how many books Linda Lael Miller has written, you'd expect some books to be better than others, but wow. Reinventing herself and living a girlhood dream are worth the hard work.
Miller has established a foundation, the Linda Lael Miller Scholarships for Women. There are tons of ups and downs and the set up for book four is great. It's youngest brother Tyler Creed's turn to take center stage in this book. They get cracked, those cups, and even broken. It's important to note that this series should be read in order. Overall, the book wasn't awful but suspending disbelief became a serious struggle. That is, until she meets quiet shop owner Wes Whitman.
An orgasm induced by his mere proximity in the supermarket. But lately, he's been feeling a need to return to his roots and to do some serious thinking. There's a lot of mis-concepts to put to rest. Maybe all they need is a grand affair—just in time for Christmas. But I imagine it was not or is not much different than the 1st and 2nd which I am currently reading. I don't care for that, but fortunately it never lasted.
And when Joss and Slade finally get together, there are sparks enough to ignite the town. Not once is his betrayal mentioned or remembered. Tyler finding out he might have a teenage son and all the things associated with that. Edited to add: I skimmed through to the end. All in all, there's a lot of sex, a little mystery, some danger, and a lot more sweetness than I'd have expected in a cowboy story about an ex-rodeo man with an alcoholic and abusive father. Linda lives in Spokane, Washington. All those things made the story rather engaging for me.
Wes is drawn to fierce, beautiful Maria, but how could a firecracker like her care for a shy man like him? Miller is an expert at believable passion and she writes a beautifully paced story. Fifteen years later, Charity and Luke meet once more. And, what does she do, she agrees. Of course she assumed he didn't love her, but he assures her it was quite the opposite -he drove her away because he didn't want her to be near Tyler. It gets a question mark, because there's not a second of worry that the characters will actually get hurt, there's no emotional turmoil, and they wanted to bulldoze the cabin anyway! Then there's the horribly convoluted plot.
