Logan and his two brothers lost their parents years ago. The three brothers had a fight and all three left home. They inherited their dad's Montana ranch, but it stood vacant for 12 years. Now, Logan returns to the ranch to start working it as a cattle ranch. He also wants to find a wife and start a family.
Two years ago, Brianna's husband abandoned her and her two sons nearby. She has been living in the small house on the ranch. The house is owned by Dylan, Logan's brother. Dylan saw her when she was first abandoned and offered help by letting her live in the house rent free and use his truck. Dylan has been away since then. Brianna got divorced, and she is raising her sons by working in a nearby casino. She meets Logan, they get along, and he likes her boys. Soon, Brianna's ex-husband and his new wife come to town. Problems start happening.
The characters were good, with a couple of bad guy influences for conflict. It reminds me of a typical Harlequin romance novel, nice but nothing special. There was nothing wrong with it. I just wanted to be a little more surprised or delighted in order to give it more stars. I liked it which is my definition for 3 stars. The author has two sequels coming out in 2009, one for each of the brothers: Dylan and Tyler.
Story length: 366 pages. Swearing language: strong. Sexual language: none to mild. Number of sex scenes: 3. Total number of sex scene pages: 7. Setting: current day Stillwater Springs, Montana. Copyright: 2009. Genre: contemporary romance.
Dylan has allowed Briana Grant and her two sons ten year old Josh and eight year old Alec to live in Logan's house since her rat of an ex Vance deserted her, their kids and their dog two years ago in Stillwater Springs. Logan likes the children and is attracted to their mother. When it appears that someone wants to hurt Briana, Logan vows to keep her and her children safe while fixing up the ranch and reconciling with his brothers.
Linda Lael Miller expands her McKettrick universe with their Big Sky cousins: the Creeds. The first tale stars big brother Logan and a courageous single mom who shows how much she cares about people by making it her mission to pull weeds from the nearby cemetery's gravesites. The Creeds are as dysfunctional as a family can be. Ms. Miller uses broken relationships like a master mage. Obviously targeting the McKettrick mob, fans of the author will appreciate her latest entry as the saga grows and two more siblings to follow.
Tired of the rift between he and his brothers, Logan uses the repairs needed on the ranch as a way to get he, Dylan and Tyler back to talking again. Dylan comes around when Logan calls him wanting to know if it's okay to re-place the fencing around Dylan's old nemesis, Cimarron, a rodeo brahmer bull. Dylan doesn't want Logan doing any repairs to his part of the ranch so comes home for a short time to see what needs to be done. Logan also asks about his pretty young neighbor, who is house sitting for Dylan. Logan met Briana his first day back when he went to the old family cemetery. Briana and her boys were there having a picnic, which they did once a week. Briana finding the old cemetery not long after her and the boys moved into Dylan's place. It was overgrown and in a terrible mess so she decided to clean it up and keep it that way.
Briana Grant and her two sons were left stranded by her husband in the Wal-Mart parking lot in Stillwaters Springs, Montana, with only forty dollars to her name. Dylan, in town on business, just happened to see Vance, Briana's then husband, throw the money out of the truck window and speed away. Sizing up the situation, Dylan handed her a set of keys, gave her directions to his ranch house and strolled off. He did warn her to stay clear of Cimarron. The next morning, a load of groceries arrived along with a note from Dylan saying there was an old Chevy truck parked in the barn and she could use it if she coud get it running. Since then, nearly two years now, they'd had no communication beyond the occasional e-mail or phone call. When something needed fixing, Dylan was quick to send a check. Briana was very thankful for Dylan's kindness.
Briana has heard stories of her good looking neighbor, but his kindness with her sons makes her stop and think of what life could be like with the right man. Since Logan and Briana both felt a kind of electricity in their first meeting, a relationship, slow but steady, begins to bloom and holds firm even when her ex reappears and an unknown assailant vandalizes her home.
This story reads so easily that you might think your reading about someone in your own small town community. The very first sentence puts you in the frame of mind that you're the one standing in front of that old sign and not Logan Creed. Anyone having even a slight knowledge of their own family history, will enjoy this book. It's a great comfortable reading story. I was so hooked that I read it one night.
