The Creed Legacy by Linda Lael Miller

The Creed Legacy

About the Book:

Rough-and-tumble rodeo cowboy Brody Creed likes 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 tick tock 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.


“…I was referring, my prickly friend, to the bare-socket electricity arcing between you and Brody all evening. I’m surprised all our hair didn’t stand on end, and our skeletons didn’t show through our skin….”

“…because the nooky-ban obviously isn’t working any better for you than it is for me—which is to say, not at all….”

My Review:

            Linda Lael Miller does it again with this novel. I was looking for something light hearted to read with (sorry) a definite good ending and this book did not disappoint. It was funny and serious. We always expect funny, caught off guard scenes from Linda; but this book had a sad note to it as well. In the end, the cowboy’s heart as well as the cowgirl’s heart will mend with the help of their love.

            Brody Creed, downright handsome and boasting the sexiest blue eyes this side of the great Mississippi, bears a striking resemblance to his brother, Conner. There’s a reason for that, they are twins. Having lost their parents as babies and they were raised by a devoted aunt and uncle.

            The Creed twins have each suffered their share of tragedy and along the way find wonderful women who match them in spirit and that is what seals the deal with this trilogy. I enjoyed the Creed Legacy and you will too. I definitely recommend it.
