The Lawman

Marshal Shay McQuillan has a lot on his hands -- stagecoach robbers to hunt down, a murdered fiancée to avenge. He certainly doesn't need an identical twin brother he never knew existed turning up out of the blue and telling him what to do. Even less does he want pretty Aislinn Lethaby trying to rescue him from danger. Because, to tell the truth, Aislinn is a

A really good book. I loved both stories and enjoyed getting to know the characters. Emotions, steaminess, action, some suspense, full and strong characters, written well, and great HEAs. These stories were colorful, full and fun to read. Great for anytime reading. Enjoy!

In case you haven’t noticed, I’m a huge Linda Lael Miller fan-girl and I love her work. Two Brothers is two novellas about, well, two brothers. Per usual, her characterizations are strong and their motivations are logical and clear. The reason I didn’t score this title higher was because both stories felt a little flat to me. Miller’s work normally has a sense of joy or humor and it was missing for me. Even with that said, Two Brothers is a solid read though I’d recommend either the Creed or Mc ...more

This was a wonderful book, both stories. This kind of writing and captivating story is why I love Linda Lael Miller's, books so much. In the first story, you will not just fall in love with Shay, but also his twin, Tristan. It's a good thing they were both in the same book, so I could go right from one brother's story, to the next. You won't regret reading either of them."

This was two books in one. The first, The Lawman, was much better than the second, The Gunslinger. The storylines overlapped - it was two identical twins separated at birth discovering each other after 30 years. Both books were good, but I enjoyed the first more than the second.

This book was twofer. Two Novels in one; each one representing a twin. Ms. Miller never disappoints. Her imagination just amazes me.
The first story The Lawman was enjoyable. However, I found myself skipping through paragraphs of The Gunslinger just to get finished as I found myself not really caring about the characters. There was no chemistry between them at all.

Reading one of the books that my wife had read is always a gamble. But this one was an enjoyable read. The first story about Shay was almost as good as a typical L'Amour tale. The second one with Tristan was good, but not quite as interwoven as the first one.

Recommends it for: linda lael miller fans, wild west romance fans
Ok, so I finished with the Lawman. It was cute and I liked how the prologue tied together the history of both Shay and Tristan. I think I may have liked Tristan just a smidge better but there was something about Shay that you just wanted to hug. Like the Shay says - people either liked him or didn't. I liked him, I admit. Aislinn - the love interest is not bad, she's a bit too soft and innocent for me but by the end of the book she really comes into her own. It threw me for a loop for a whole of ...more

I'm not usually a big "romance" novel type of reader. I find the sex scenes vague and unrealistic and the constant whining and anticipation of the characters annoying. But, that being said, this one wasn't bad. I liked the beginning journal passages and would have realy enjoyed expanding on that story. I liked the idea of twins seperated at birth. I enjoyed the time frame of the wild west and appreciated the fact it stayed true to the code of conduct back in those days. I snickered when I read a ...more

The prologue would have been an interesting story in itself as Mattie Killigrew wrote in her journal of her marriage and cross country move with her new husband into uncharted territory by wagon train.

The trip was gruesome for a very pregnant young woman. The day of her last entry in her journal was the day her husband was killed by indians and the very same night she went into labor giving birth to twin boys. Realizing that she would soon be joining her husband, she gave one son, Shamus, to a c

Interesting dual novels

This book is an interesting way to tell the stories of two men born within minutes of each other, yet raised in vastly different enviroments. The characters were well developed and the stories well handled. I would have given 5 stars, but I had just a little difficulty accepting the female lead in the second story. Still a good tale, but it requires more "suspension of reality" than I prefer.

Twin brothers, Shay McQuillan & Tristan Saint Laurent were separated at birth because both of their parents died on the same day. Years later, Tristan, aided by their mother's remembrance book, locates Shay. Together, they fight the bad guys and discover the love of good women. Two delightful stories!

I really enjoyed these two books and like the fact each brother had their own story. The romance was good, characters were well done and plenty of emotion from all. I rarely give five stars but maybe I was in the mood for a good historical western or the not-so-perfect but exceedingly handsome heroes that made this a very enjoyable read.
this book w3as romantic in country style long time ago. it was a good book but ill recommend to my aunt.HAA HA. it's a more majure book. to tell you the truth it was sort of booooring.i jusrt read it beacuse it was alittle bit interesting

Shelves: historical
Set in old West late 1800's with the requisite town saloon, drunk and whores. 2 brothers separated at birth. Book is two novella's. The brothers are young men and each find love. I liked the visual descriptions of the town and country. I wanted to inhabit the world Ms. Miller created.

This is really two novellas in a single binding. The first story was more well developed, but still, as with most novellas the characters were only superficially developed. The second "story" I simply skimmed.
I liked this pairing of books. I also appretiated the fact that they are two distinct and full length books and not two stories cramed into one book. The charachters are wonderful and exciting though I felt that The Gunslinger was a little rushed and underdeveloped toward the ending.

Hot twin brothers in one story? What can you ask for? This book takes you back in the conservative way of living, western style. I gave it 4 stars because the story is a little predictable. Yet, still a good read! Actually owned this book since it was on sale.

My sister picked up this from a flee market for a quarter. I needed something mindless to read by the pool. It was worth a quarter.

Two in one? Yes please! Good book from Linda Lael Miller but was there ever any doubt? She is one of my favorite authors, she does not disappoint.

I loved how there were 2 books in one - she combined the brothers' stories seamlessly... loved this! I don't know why I'm getting into these romances set in the Old West, but I am ;)

Definitely fell short compared to other LLM books. Slightly entertaining but totally forgetable. I was disappointed. Cool story idea twisting two twins stories together though...

I was actually fairly disappointed in this book. I usually REALLY like Linda Lael Miller but I just couldn't really get into either of these books and had no interest in the main characters.

I pretty well liked this book. Twins do sometimes get seperated at birth and grow apart later to find each other again. Good read, glad I invested in it
