Review: A Creed in Stone Creek by Linda Lael Miller
When single attorney Steven Creed becomes guardian of an orphaned five-year-old boy, he trades his big-city law firm for a ranch near his McKettrick kin in the close-knit community of Stone Creek, Arizona. Taking care of little Matt and fixing up his run-down ranch house with its old barn loosens something tightly wound inside him. But when Steven takes on the pro bono defense of a local teen, he meets his match in the opposing counsel — beautiful, by-the-book county prosecutor Melissa O’Ballivan. It’ll take one grieving little boy, a sweet adopted dog and a woman who never expected to win any man’s heart to make this Creed in Stone Creek know he’s truly found home.
- Let me start off by saying that I love Linda Lael Miller’s work. If you are looking for engrossing, intelligent Western romances then you might want to start with her work.
With that said, I wasn’t blown away by A Creed in Stone Creek. The heroine is somewhat off-putting and the only attraction I ‘felt’ was strictly physical between the hero/heroine. Even through they end up together at the end of the book, it didn’t feel like a relationship that would last. The heroine’s feelings and motivations felt muddied. Series titles need to stand on their own but in this case the book doesn’t. In order to understand Melissa one needs to read the previous titles. ~ Ana, www.ireadromance.com
