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)
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
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.
