The Montana Creeds

by Linda Lael Miller

A Creed Country Christmas

Montana, Christmas 1910: For widowed rancher Lincoln Creed, the holiday serves as a harsh reminder of what a tough year it's been – and who he's lost. His ranch has fallen on hard times, and he must find his little daughter Gracie a governess, a lady who can teach and cook – yet won't set her sights on him.

For schoolteacher Juliana Mitchell, the holiday means finding a way to stretch her meager salary to provide food and firewood for the orphaned children in her care. Twenty-five-year-old Juliana has no desire to get married. Yet when she meets the handsome rancher, she can't help but be drawn into his loving home. It's the season for miracles, and fate might bring this family together for Christmas...

An Outlaw's Christmas

With his wild heart, Sawyer McKettrick isn't ready to settle down on the Triple M family ranch in Arizona. So he heads to Blue River, Texas, to seek a job as marshal. But in a blinding snowstorm he's injured – and collapses into the arms of a prim and proper lady in calico.

The shirtless, bandaged stranger recuperating in teacher Piper St. James's room behind the schoolhouse says he's a McKettrick, but he looks like an outlaw to her. As they wait out the storm, the handsome loner has Piper remembering long-ago dreams of marriage and motherhood. But for how long is Sawyer willing to call Blue River home?

As the gray skies clear, Piper's one holiday wish just might bring two lonely hearts together forever.
