I jumped right into this book after finishing the first book in the series. And then I spent most of my free time yesterday reading because this book was just as good - maybe even a little better - than the first book.

Montana Creeds: Dylan is the second book in the Montana Creeds series about the 3 Creed brothers (distant cousins of the McKettricks) who have been estranged for years. I wouldn't recommend reading this book as a standalone or the series out of order. The books are pretty heavily c

He's called "rodeo's bad boy" and he's a man who likes life in the fast lane. But when the daughter he hardly knows is abandoned by her mother, Dylan heads home to the family ranch. Town librarian Kristy Madison is shocked when he turns up for story hour with a toddler in tow. The man who'd left a trail of broken hearts--including hers--is back, and this time Kristy's determined to tame his wild ways!
I just loved this story. Lael Miller brings the west, small towns, and strong knit communities t

Dylan is still on the rodeo circuit and also working as a stunt man when he receives calls from his older brother Logan talking nonsense about rebuilding on the old homestead and putting up fences on his property. But it’s when a one-night stand can’t take being a mother any longer and leaves his two-year-old daughter Bonnie in his truck one night that he even seriously thinks about going home. Once he gets there and sees what Logan has in mind and finds out that his lost love is still unmarried ...more
Another good one. Dylan is back in town with her little girl, abandoned by her mother in a parking into Dylan's car.

He's back to his brother too. I love how Logan and Dylan are working together to be a family again.

And I love all those children and dogs.

Great. I'm currently reading 3rd story :)

Whew!! Another great one by Miller. Rodeo's bad Boy Dylan Creed gets the shock of his life when he leaves a Vegas gambling establishment. His daughter Bonnie, has been left in his truck by her mother. Okay Dylan needs to fess up and become a father so he heads home to Montana to the Creed ranch.

Left behind was Kristy Madison, who Dylan left in Stilwater Springs. She has continued to love Dylan no matter how many years have passed.

Another great one by Miller. How Kristy and Dylan reunite after so
I enjoyed Kristy a lot more than I did Briana in the previous book, but sadly, I think that Dylan wasn't as interesting as Logan. Dylan and Kristy, as a couple, worked better for me, probably because of their past and the connection that was already established.

I might have contemplated 4 stars had the subplots been better fleshed out. Or at least as solid as the relationship. As it is, 3 stars.
Again like the first one I wanted more. It was simply a basic contemporary story. However I loved Dylan and his daughter Bonnie. Kristys ordeal was suspenseful and even though I had a pretty good guess who the culprit was it still was a bit of a shock. I wish there were more details on the death of the drifter honestly. I also still don't understand why the sheriff Floyd decided now was the time to dig up those graves when he knew the drifter was already there. Made no sense because it pained hi ...more
I am somewhat disappointed in these Creed brothers stories. They could be made so much more interesting, but these books are too much of a light read for me. I like the promise of their stories, but not how they come out on paper. I have read so much better stuff by L.L. Miller.
Audiobook. Narrator is good, gets better with each book as I get accustomed to his voice. He uses the same voices throughout the series for the characters, which is nice.
I think I liked this one as much as the first but for different reasons. I liked Kristy and Dylan's characters. I had some issues with the subplot going on with Kristy's parents' house. I didn't like that as much. The Bonnie issue had me nervous at times so that was good in a bad way. I did not enjoy the angst. But it was the s

The second of the series about the Creed brothers in Stillwater Springs Montana. Estranged since their father's funeral and the brawl that happened at the bar afterwards, Dylan has kept his distance from the family ranch in order to avoid his siblings.

One night after a productive night at a poker table in a seedy part of Vegas, he returns to his truck to find his 2 year old daughter sitting in the cab. Abandoned by an ex fling who didn't rate a "girlfriend" classification, he is happy to see Bo

The first book in the series, Logan is better. That's not to say this wasn't a good book, but it was creepier. In this one, (view spoiler). I'll continue to the last of the trilogy, Tyler just so I can see what everyone is up to, although it's already painfully obvious before I even start the book who he's going to fall for, and I havn't even started it yet.

his is the second book in the series. I really have fell in love with these brothers and cant wait to read the 3rd and last book in the series. Although I have to admit I liked / connected with the 1st books characters alot more. Just felt like in this book was all about having kids, and those who don't want kids are considered bad, stuck up, self centered people. That Kinda rubbed me the wrong way. But I know people have their opinions on the subject, just don't feel like that should be one of ...more

This is the second in the creed men trilogy, and I truly loved Dylan about as much as I loved Logan. It start out in Las Vegas, Nevada. Where Dylan comes out to his truck, and finds his two year old daughter "Bonnie", furious that she was left alone; he then finds a note from Sharlene saying that she can't keep Bonnie anymore and that she is heading out with her current boyfriend. He decides that he is going to learn to take good care of his daughter (since Sharlene hardly let him see "Bonnie" s ...more
Again, I'm not CRAZY about how long L.L.M.'s books are! I can get through a L.I. or a Kristan Higgins in 2-3 days, where it takes about a week? for an L.L.M book!!!

I absolutely LOVED Dylan and Kristy though!!! Kristy was relatable. And I felt their chemistry....Dylan's little 2yr old Bonnie was a DOLL!!! I can see her with her dark blonde curls, just like her Daddy, Dylan! She cracked me up with her constant yelling of her only 2 words...POOP! And Daddy!!! LOL!!! Loved ALL the animals!!! Sundanc

Abandoned by the brothers, the Creed ranch had been unkempt for years. Logan, Dylan and Tyler had found success in others areas. Their father’s death, funeral, and the ensuing fight were memories no one wanted to revisit.

Life events have a way of changing your perspective. Dylan, a rodeo circuit champion, now turned gambler was prepared, or so he thought. Leaving the poker game with large winnings was dangerous, especially at late hours. Exiting the back door, he knew something was about to happ

Montana Creeds: Dylan by Linda Lael Miller is the second book in her Montana Creeds contemporary western romance series.

After his daughter Bonnie's mother abandons her in his truck, Dylan Creed heads home to the family ranch in Montana. Dylan is determined to keep custody of Bonnie and to do that he needs his older brother (and lawyer) Logan's help, although he and Logan aren't on the best of terms right now. Back in town, Dylan also rekindles an old romance with Kristy Madison, the town librari
Après Logan, nous découvrons de plus près Dylan, le frère cadet, qui après des années sur la route, est de retour à Stillwater Springs avec une passagère un peu particulière.
De son côté, Kristy Madison mène une vie paisible entre la rénovation de sa maison, son chat et son métier de bibliothécaire. Elle a tout pour être heureuse, excepté un homme et une famille bien à elle. Alors quand Dylan, le premier amour (et le seul) de sa vie, réapparaît avec une adorable petite fille, Kristy est boulevers
Another great book by Linda Lael Miller with plenty of turns and twists along with a great love story. Dylan is forced to take care of his two year old daughter who he has had almost no conttact with. He soon discovers what means to love and have faith in others. Kristy is forced to deal with the demons of the past and how they impact her life in the now. There is some comic relief but not as much as some of her other books still a great read. 3/5 stars

Still intrigued by the Creed & McKettric Saga

Entertaining read. Could not put it down. The life that was evident in each of the characters was absolutely intoxicating.

Sharlene was a despicable human being who only thought of herself and would never be a good role model for her daughter.

Middle child in the rough and tumble Creed clan, Dylan sets off for his Montana home when he finds his two year old daughter had been left in his truck behind a poker dive in Vegas.
Kristy Madison, the town librarian wasn't sure she was happy to know that her old love who had left Stillwater Springs five years earlier was back in town and with him, the cutest little girl she had ever seen. Can Kristy handle the fact that she wanted to be the one to have Dylan's baby? And where is the mother? Can

Whew!! Another great one by Miller. Rodeo's bad Boy Dylan Creed gets the shock of his life when he leaves a Vegas gambling establishment. His daughter Bonnie, has been left in his truck by her mother. Okay Dylan needs to fess up and become a father so he heads home to Montana to the Creed ranch.
I really enjoyed this second tale of the Creed family in rural Montana. There is just something I really like about Montana cowboys. Must be the proximity to mountains.

This one had it all. Illegitimate children, break-ins, blackmail, unexplained deaths, missing persons, long past crimes, old flames, reluctant hearts. You name it, Linda Lael Miller managed to work it into this story line. Yet at the same time it didn't feel overworked or too contrived. Just contrived enough to be somewhat believa
The middle brother of the wild Creed family, Dylan is known for his bull-riding and womanizing. After a game of high stakes poker at a seedy club, Dylan discovers his young daughter abandoned in the cab of his truck by her mother. He knows that Bonnie deserves a better life and stability, so he heads back home to Stillwater Springs, Montana. As word spreads that Dylan is back in town and with a little girl no less, Kristy Madison, the town librarian, tries to keep her cool. Dylan and Kristy have ...more
I really enjoyed Dylan and Kristy. This is my second LLM book and I like her style, although I can see where she uses the same outline for her work. Dylan and Kristy already had a history, so they didn't have to meet each other is this book. But it's apparent that they never stopped loving each other from their teenage relationship. I'm glad they could work through what happened in the past and make a future for themselves. It does take a bit of detective work to remember all the little side plo ...more
The second book in the Montana Creeds saga was delightful. I enjoyed Logan, but Dylan had a lot more humor in it. I found myself chuckling throughout the book. The Creed boys may be ne'er-do-wells and bad boys, but they are thoroughly enjoyable.

Home, Love, & Family

I've always enjoyed Linda's. trilogies. But this particular book had too much graphic sex in it for my taste. The characters are wonderful as always!
Another great read from LLM. When Dylan Creed finds his 2 y/o daughter, Bonnie, abandon in his truck one night, he knows it's time to take action. He has to gain custody before her crazy mother puts her in harms way again. The only way to do that is to take her to the place he's spent most of his adult life trying to forget. With his truck loaded down with newly purchased baby stuff he heads home to Stillwater Springs where he goes in search of old flame Kristy Madison. It doesn't take long for ...more
