Books by Linda Lael Miller

C-
The Marriage Charm

I’m not a huge fan of any story that has to do with a commitment-phobic character. They always seem to dance around the issue of love (which is at the heart of every romance novel) and too often this drags out the book for another superfluous fifty pages or so. Reading The Marriage Charm was the f ...

Big Sky Country

What’s worse than anticipating a favorite author’s new book and then have it not live up to expectations, even disappoint? The first book in Miller’s new series is a case in point for me. Illegitimate son of a wealthy Montana rancher, Sheriff Slade Barlow isn’t particularly ...

The Creed Legacy

The last of the Creed trio, this one featuring good-old-boy Brody, the rodeo champion, who collects winner's belts and women’s hearts, is the best of the bunch as far as this cowgirl’s concerned. At least he’s more approachable than his twin brother Connor or his cousin Steven, even though Bro ...

Montana Creeds: Dylan

It should come as no surprise to most romance readers that Linda Lael Miller has a tremendous number of books on her backlist. As this represents my first book by the author, you may wonder why I chose to begin at this particular point in time and the answer is quite simple: It was the synopsis. I ...

The Man from Stone Creek

I have more than a few Linda Lael Miller novels on my favorites list. Since her name is in a bigger font than the title of this book, it is probably a safe bet to say that she shows up on many people's favorites lists. It is disappointing that The Man from Stone Creek will not be added to mine. ...

Don't Look Now

A person can't help but be intrigued by a book which opens with the line, "I didn't kill Harvey Kredd; somebody beat me to it." From there we learn how Claire Westbrook's distinctly unpleasant boss met his end. Actually, the reader also learns quite a bit about Claire as she proceeds to give a brief ...

High Country Bride

If High Country Bride were a mainstream novel, some of its story elements would be laughed off the page. We have an only-in-a-romance will, wild west prostitutes who stay beautiful and never come down with STD's, and a heroine who is supposed to have gone to good schools, but comes off as a clueless ...

Springwater Wedding

Linda Lael Miller's latest novel, Springwater Wedding, is a modern-day sequel to her Western Historical series, named for the town of Springwater, Montana. Not having read the previous books in this series, I was a little apprehensive about taking this one on for review. Soon, however, I was practic ...

Courting Susannah

The title of this book is a puzzler, since Aubrey Fairgrieve, the hero, spends relatively little time actually courting Susannah. Instead, both of them are constantly Remembering Julia, Aubrey’s late unlamented wife and Susannah’s childhood best friend. It’s an off-center focus in an unremarka ...

The Women of Primrose Creek: Skye

I became very angry as I was reading this book. Angry that I was wasting my time, angry that these characters were so stupid, and above all angry that a well-known author could write such a silly, derivative and cliched book. The best thing about Skye is that it is short. Skye is ...
