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 :)

I could have done without the novella at the end of this one, ON THE RUN WITH THE LAWMAN, although it wasn't terrible, but if I had to rate the novella alone it might only be three stars. I don't read novellas as a general rule because I like to get involved with the story. I like to get to know the characters and feel like I'm almost right there, a part of things. I don't get that with novellas, I guess because they're so short. This one did have a lot of action, though, and it was a good story ...more

I'm sure this was a fine book. I skimmed it because I just don't like books where the hero and heroine are old lovers who broke up and then meet again years later. Sometimes I can read them if I'm in the right mood or if they are just phenomenal. This one he didn't really seem to love her so I just couldn't get into it. It also bothered me that she didn't have kids but wanted them and he had one with a floozie. I guess I felt too sorry for her.

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.
I don't know how I really feel about this one. Having stopped in Montana on a 3 month road trip around Canada and the US, I was drawn to this one. It was definitely one of my top 5 place in ou big round trip. We stayed in the Missoula area for a few days and were in love with the valleys and mountains. I was a bit disappointed that there weren't more details on the small town and the area. I found the characters had good chemistry, but on the other hand, they were also annoying and a bit stupid. ...more

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

Took me a long time to get to this one as I'm still waiting for the first book in the series (Logan). I could wait no longer. This is a typical Linda Lael Miller story, set in Montana, with the rich cowboys for heros. The cowboy in this book is Dylan Creed and his girl interest is Kristy Madison. Boy and girl are teenage lovers through high school. They break apart after graduation only to be reunited after a few years, when both return to their home town. I alway, like happy endings.

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

I loved this book!!!!! I am a huge fan of Linda Lael Miller, she writes series books like no other!! Her stories are so rich, the characters are so developed that they become friends. I get totally immersed in her stories and feel like I am part of them. I can picture myself in the small towns visiting the places and people from the book. I never want them to end and anxiously await the next book in the series. With this note I am on to the next book in the series, Tyler. Happy reading!!

I really enjoyed this book from the start to the finish. Like the first book in this series, The first half made it sound like a romance-drama but then the last half was a romance-mystery so you got a little of everything in this book. The characters were all easy to get to know. I listened to it on CD and the guy that reads it to us did a pretty good job at changing tones and voices to suit the situation in the story.

I would not recommend this for an advanced pre teen as it does hav
