Linda Lael Miller may not be one of my absolute favorite authors, and her books may not make my Top list, but they are still very enjoyable, easy reads. You know what you are going to get with LLM when it comes to her intertwined McKettrick/Stone Creek/Creed series.

Summary:
Ashley O'Ballivan has watched her older brother and older sister marry and start happy lives while she sticks to her life as a bed-and-breakfast owner and general homebody and continues a lingering off-and-on affair with myste...more

Once again LLM captured my heart with one of her tales. We first run into Ashley O'Ballivan in The McKettrick Way. She is a lesser character, but you wonder what happens to her and her hansome B&B guest Jack McCall. But in this book Jack shows up after a dangerous mission to save a 7 yr. old girl from her drug lord father that has stolen her. While rescueing her he is injected with some kind of toxin, and is very ill. In his delirium he only knows that he wants to get back to Ashley. But goi...more

I enjoy how Linda Lael Miller creates families and then revisits them with new installments. You get a chance to catch up with familiar characters who already found their special someones and get to know some of the ones who are still waiting. While I have read two of the other books in this series they were published a while back and the characters were not all that fresh in my mind. Luckily Lael Miller included refreshers on who was who and what had happened in their pasts. This story is about...more

I have read others of this family of Linda Lael Miller's series. This one like so many of hers was a let down. With a little work this story could have been fleshed out and expanded on. There was some action but it ended so abruptly, I kept asking myself is this how it really ends? I have read the other ones for this family and they were ok. A woman twice burned by the same man, is not going to immediately fall into bed with that man no matter how much she loves him. I have almost given up on th...more

Yawn. I didn't even remember finishing this the next morning. And that's only partly due to the ambien.

Linda Lael Miller is a favorite author of mine. I liked "At Home in Stone Creek" because Linda has a way of sweeping me away from my personal life and transporting me to a new realm in tune with the characters in her books, who are often times bigger than life. It adds some excitment to this ordinary life in rural Oklahoma.

A wounded soldier of fortune makes his way back to a woman he fell in love with a few years back, and whom he left without a word of explanation. She has turned her home into...more

A continuation of the Stone Creek series with the O'Ballivan family stories. This story has Ashley and Jack. Ashley runs a bed and breakfast out of her house. Jack McCall is a security expert working for the DEA. He has to leave frequently on jobs and is worried that the jobs he runs could follow him to Stone Creek and bring harm to Ashley and her family. He is always leaving without telling her anything. Finally, Jack gets really sick and has to come home to Stone Creek and Ashley.

A different spin to the series

A different spin to the series

Stone Creek sounds like a nice place to live with nothing but peace and quiet and meddling family. This story tested that promise with a lot of drama in the way of Jack. I

Wow !What a read

I love LLM books and this one was one of the best ,A great read full of exciting twist and turn , I gave the book 4 stars because it could always be better. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a great read.

Didn't really like this one. Compared to the last book I read it was very prude-ish for a romance novel. It's like number six in the series or something but it gave me no interest to read the others. I didn't like the main or supportive characters at all. The main couple were so in love but he was like a spy guy and she didn't even really know anything about him except how he was in the sack! Plus the main lady was described as wearing long skirts, french braids, baked tarts and was like my age....more

Goodreads should have a steaminess rating for romance novels. This one would be a 5/5. I was going to pass the book on to my mom or grandma but to be honest it makes me squeamish to think about them reading certain scenes.

Also this may be an odd comment but I liked how even though this is a romance novel the main characters points out the leading man is the only person she has ever been "intimate" with. Sometimes romance novels don't always have role model leading ladies. It's nice to know (eve...more

Jack McCall left Ashley O'Ballivan without saying goodby. He returned months later, sick. He was also being threatened by a drug lord. Can Jack and Ashley fight off these threats and find happiness? A pleasant story with the O'Ballivan family fully involved.

I liked the story and thought it was well written. Also like the characters.
Janet Horton
Well, I read this one out of sequence but it was just as good just the same even though I already knew what had happened to others - and these characters. It was still a little mystery and a lot of romance. There were funny parts and a lot of family bonding. As usual, it was a good "feel-good" book.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. Expected a love story with not much substance but was wrong. Quick read but had a plot as well as a love story. Loved the 2 main characters-- Jack and Ashley as well as the other members of her family. Look forward to reading more books about them.
Marleen
I love most of LLM's books and I think she's a great Western romance stories writer. However in this story in the Stone Creek saga, I find Ashley, the lead female character too whiny & weak. Overall, the characters are not too deeply developed, which is a disappointment.
Ashley
Loved this story! It was a real true romance not so etching that came out of nowhere ....they loved each other before and still did : ). I've read this series backwards haha I just have to read Brad's story and start on the creed twins
Laura
Enjoyable story of forgiveness, adds nicely to the Stone Creek/McKettrick families. I love how the author crafts characters you would actually want to know and it's always nice to revisit past book leads.
Megan
This book wasn't as good as LLM's other books, but it wasn't bad either. I'm glad I finished the series. LLM writes great western romances, both historical and contemporary.
Gail
A very good story about true love and a woman who would just about anything to hold onto the man she loves even though he had already broken her heart.1
Michele bookloverforever
I like ms. miller's gentle (usually) love stories. sometimes she spices it up with a little drama and danger.sometimes she does not.
Teresa Snyder
This was somewhat different from most LLM books. Apparently I really liked it, given I started and finished it the same day. Good book.
Gizzard
OK series romance. It was a bit far fetched and the couple books I read in this series don't really stand alone very well.
Necole
5/11 Started the book..hope it is good.
5/13 Finished the book. It was good. I really hope the other twin Melissa finds love!
Germaine
An interesting hero, but a wimpy heroine and waaaay too much of heroine's meddling family.
Sharon
A little too unbelievable. A little too easily wrapped up. Still, I enjoyed it.
Tracy Sandler
Linda Lael Miller is always good for a fun, lighthearted bedtime or beach read.
Amy
Cheesy. Which is kind of what I expected for a Special Edition Harlequin.
