Creed's Honor - Linda Lael Miller

Conner Creed knows exactly who he is: a hardworking rancher carrying on his uncle's legacy in Lonesome Bend, Colorado. Maybe a small-town cowboy's life isn'this dream, but he owes the man who took him in as a kid. Until the identical twin brother he's been estranged from for years reenters his life.

Conner struggles with identity issues as he gets to know his wilder brother. And then he meets Tricia McCall, a beautiful woman who knows a thing or two about living someone else's dreams. Together, they just might find their own dreams right here in Lonesome Bend….

The next book in the Montana Creed's series follows Connor Creed.  Small town rancher Connor Creed has always done the right thing.  Holding on to the family ranch while his wilder older brother travels the rodeo circuit, drinks and has a multitude of women at this disposal.  Tricia McCall has a life in Seattle that she loves, friends that she adores and a man that she...tolerates.  Coming back to Lonesome Bend to settle her father's estate and sell off his properties is just a little hitch in the road, until she isn't sure Seattle is her home anymore, and not sure where her home actually is.  With the help of a matchmaking dog, a nosey goddaughter and a meddling grandmother, Tricia can't help but fall in love with the country side and the cowboy, right??

Notable Quote:
"...he likes her, too.  You can tell buy the way he looks at her.  It's the same way my dad looks at cheeseburgers."

I adored the first in this series, but this second on kind of fell flat for me.  The main characters didn't even talk to each other until about page 100.  It seemed very slow to get to the point and when the point was made it was a rush to the end.  I liked the characters individually but together I am not sure they had chemistry, and that could be because there wasn't a lot of the book that revolved around them being a couple, just their own battles that needed to be won.  I am very much looking forward to Brody's book though, hoping this is just a little bump in the road.
