McKettrick Series

I love Linda Lael Miller’s western historical novels so much. I stumbled upon some of her books at Barnes and Noble because her books are always displayed and they are hard to miss. Since I’ve first discovered her novels I’ve tried to get as many of her wonderful books as possible. She also writes contemporary romances but I like her historicals more. I especially like her McKettrick series because it starts in the 1800’s but the series continues for a couple more generations until it’s in the present. You see how the ancesters of the present McKettrick have influenced the whole family line and that is so wonderful the read. I read the series a bit out of line last year but I finally got all the books in the series and have started reading it all from the beginning. The series has 9 novels so far and I think there are going to be more in this series because there are a lot of McKettricks. So I guess you’ve noticed that this week I’ve been reading all the books in the McKettrick series and what a series it is.
The McKettrick Way is the ninth book in the series and continues the story of the stubborn and hardheaded McKettrick family. We are now in the present and we are seeing the children of the children of the first McKettrick men, Angus, Holt, Rafe, Kade and Jeb. This book is about Meg McKettrick who is from the Holt McKettrick line. We met Meg McKettrick in Sierra’s Homecoming because she is Sierra McKettrick’s older sister and well this is her story. I really loved this book and I have to say that it is my favorite of all the books in the series. I thought that Brad O’Ballivan is the perfect match for Meg because besides have a past romantic affair they seemed to compliment each other well. I thought that it was cool that the O’Ballivan family line was strong in the present because I love the Stone Creek Series (I’ll be writing about this series soon). They had to go through a lot to finally find the love that they share is something wonderful and that made the novel some much more exciting to read. This is such a wonderful novel because I can still see the McKettrick and O’Ballivan from the past influencing the McKettrick and O’Ballivan of the present and it just makes me compare how the present McKettrick’s and O’Ballivan’s are just like there ancestors. This book is such a good read that I finished it up in 5 hours and it made me want more. I also think that the McKettrick men pick out very strong willed women to marry and they keep these McKettrick men on their toes and it goes vice versa for the McKettrick women. The end of this book hinted that there would be more McKettrick books to come and even a new series about an extended family of the McKettrick family line. Here is the description of the book from the back cover and picture:
THE McKETTRICK WAY $ 4.99 (Book 9)(248 Pages)

The McKettrick Way by Linda Lael Miller

She wanted his baby…and he wanted her!
Meg McKettrick longs for a baby—husband optional. Perfect father material is gorgeous Brad O’Ballivan, old flame and new owner of his family’s ranch in Stone Creek. But Meg—as strong, proud and stubborn as her ancestors on Indian Rock’s Triple M ranch—wants to do things her way…the McKettrick way. And Brad feels just as strongly about the O’Ballivan way…

Love, marriage, babies and a lifetime to share—that’s what Brad wants. Not a single night of passion, an unexpected pregnancy and a woman who won’t budge. For a rugged rodeo cowboy who never gives up, it’s a battle of wills he intends to win…and nothing matters more than claiming Meg’s wild McKettrick’s heart.

McKETTRICK’S HEART $ 7.99 (Book 8)(315 Pages)

McKettrick's Heart by Linda Lael Miller

A new generation of McKettrick men stake their claim to their land—and the women they love…
Keegan McKettrick has learned the hard way that women can’t be trusted. The only female in his life these days is the young daughter he sees all too rarely, and his sole passion is for his job overseeing his family’s corporation. Until beautiful but mysterious Molly Shields comes to Indian Rock on a mission—and keeping a suspicious eye on her becomes Keegan’s full-time hobby….

Molly doesn’t know why she’s attracted to a man who’s determined to dig up dirt on her, even if he is gorgeous. But cynical Keegan might be the one person who can truly understand her shadowy past—and if the two can risk opening their hearts, they just might forge a brighter future.

McKETTRICK’S LUCK $ 7.99 (Book 6)(378 Pages)

McKettrick's Luck by Linda Lael Miller

A new generation of McKettrick men stake their claim to their land—and the women they love…
Like his celebrated ancestors who tamed the wilds of Arizona, Jesse McKettrick’s Indian Rock ties run deep. The Triple M Ranch is in his blood, along with the thrill of risk. But with his land at stake, Jesse won’t get involved in Cheyenne Bridges’s scheme—despite the temptation she brings.

Cheyenne grew up in Indian Rock and left its painful memories behind to become a self-made woman. Now her job is to convince Jesse to sell his property. Jesse’s not the kind of man Cheyenne could ever forget, but he’s too wild and dangerous for a woman committed to playing if safe. Yet sparks of attraction fly, tempting Cheyenne to lay it all on the line for the passion she sees in Jesse’s eyes.

We are now in the present and we are seeing the children of the children of the first McKettrick men, Angus, Holt, Rafe, Kade and Jeb.

Reading about these two women from both the past and present shows how no matter what century you live in love is a sweet yet complicated emotion.

Sierra's Homecoming by Linda Lael Miller

Tempest—in a—Teapot
When she moved to her family’s ancestral ranch, single mom Sierra McKettrick was disconcerted by the Triple M’s handsome caretaker, Travis Reid.

McKettrick’s Choice is the fourth book in the series and continues the story of the stubborn, hardheaded and very manly McKettrick men. This book is Holt McKettrick’s story and it is one fascinating tale to read because it is one problem after another, which makes the novel so much more interesting to read. In this book we meet other interesting characters that make the lives the the McKettrick men so much more interesting. Holt’s family before he came to McKettrick lands are in trouble and he needs to go back to help them. In the first novel you found out that Angus McKettrick is feeling old and wants his wild sons to settle down and give him grandchildren. So he has come up with a contest which says that the first son to get married and give him a grandchild will have control over the ranch when he has seen fit to retire. This causes a big rift between the brothers that causes them to run in search of wives. Rafe is married to Emmeline and have a lovely baby girl as does Kade and Mandy and Jeb and Chloe. Now it’s Holt’s turn to find his lady love who is going to put up a hell of a fight just like the other McKettrick women.
In comes the stubborn Lorelei Fellows who has been neglected all her life by her father because she wasn’t her dead brother. Holt and Lorelei do not rub each other the right way throughout the book but you know they will end up together sooner or later. This book is such a good read that I finished it up in one day and I instantly picked up the fifth book in the series wanting to read more about these fascinating McKettrick men and women and the trouble they get into.

McKETTRICK’S CHOICE $ 7.99 (Book 4)(359 Pages)

McKettrick's Choice by Linda Lael Miller

When news came that there was trouble back in Texas…Holt McKettrick left a mail-order bride and his family on the spot!
And he never looked back. He just prayed he’d be in time to save the man who had raised him as a son and keep his best friend from the gallows. He knew he’d encounter rustlers, scoundrels and thieves. But he’d never expected to find a woman like Lorelei Fellows.
Setting fire to her wedding dress in the town square probably wasn’t the best way to stand her ground.
But Lorelei had had enough. She was sick of men and their schemes. All she wanted was to stake her claim on her own little piece of Texas. And with Holt McKettrick as a neighbor, things were beginning to look up. The man was a straight shooter with a strong will, a steady aim and a hungry heart.

I'm a part-time aspiring romance novelist, book reviewer and blogger. I've always wanted to travel the world and learn everything I can about other countries. Learning the Italian language is one way of trying to make that dream come true. Traveling will help me with my writing because I'll be learning about the history of the U.S., Latin America, England, Italy, and Ireland, the countries I find so fascinating while reading the romance genre. I read and review romance novels of almost every subgenre along with erotic romance, mystery, sci-fi/fantasy and young adult novels. You can find the reviews at my blogs, Talk About My Favorite Authors and Phoebe Jordan's Reviews. I’ve also started a live podcast show called TAMFA | Phoebe Jordan hosted on Blog Talk Radio. This show is dedicated to everything I love about romance and young adult novels. I love having romance and young adult authors live on my show to be interviewed and showcase their books. I plan to write contemporary romance, romantic suspense, erotic romance, paranormal romance and young adult when I get my writing career started with help from Keta. I'm not sure what genre I'll write to begin with since I love to read so many different romance genres.
