Overview



Celebrate the holidays with the Creed forefathers—Montana men who built the family homestead and established a legacy of love…

In the unforgiving Montana wilderness of 1910, widowed rancher Lincoln Creed is up against more than rustlers, wolves and the coming winter storms. His young daughter has needs beyond the beans and bacon he can barely cook. Lincoln must find little Gracie a governess, a lady who can teach and cook—yet won't set her sights on him.

Disowned for her refusal to marry, twenty-five-year-old Juliana Mitchell shares the love in her heart with her young students at the underfunded Indian school. When she meets Lincoln and Gracie, her response to the handsome rancher makes her realize she's not against marriage after all.

She longs to help, yet the two orphaned brothers in her care need her. But in the season for miracles, Providence just might find a way to bring Juliana, the boys and the Creed family together for Christmas Eve….

Publishers Weekly
Miller delivers a holiday heartwarmer her fans are sure to adore. When Juliana Mitchell runs out of money, she loses the Indian school she runs in 1910 Montana, and the four children in her care are left with nowhere to go. Lucky for her (and them), she meets rancher Lincoln Creed, whose daughter is in desperate need of a governess. But things don’t work out exactly as Creed envisioned, and it turns out Juliana could fulfill a much larger role in the Creed home. Things look like they’re turning out well for everyone, but an Indian affairs agent might upset the happy if unconventional setup. Mitchell makes for a sympathetic heroine, and in Creed, Miller has moved beyond the usual quiet frontiersman to create a sensitive, loyal gentleman that readers will love. (Nov.)

A Creed Country Christmas (Montana Creeds Series) 4.1 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 73 reviews.

Reading about Juliana the teacher,romantic heroine in the Montana countryside of the early 1900's is very sweet and compelling. I enjoyed how she kept her courage in some very tough conditions. It reminds one of the debt we owe our forebears. It also let you look at racial prejudice/neglect at that era. I believe it appeals especially to people of Indian ancestry. To observe what ranchers went through in their daily worklife was interesting.Parts of the story made me very emotional because the lack of communication between family members caused unnecessary pain and hardship.The arrival and handling of the Indian angent was a very nice touch. I very highly recommend this book as a easy enjoyable read.

Linda Lael Miller has introduced the Creeds through multiple books, each an enjoyable read. This Creed Country Christmas was equally wonderful. Almost as good as chocolate.

I just loved this book. I will read it again every Christmas. While being very romantic and truly heart wrenching it reminds you of the true meaning of Christmas. I love Linda Lael Miller's books. After reading the other books in the Montana Creeds series I really enjoyed getting the feeling of how this family evolved and came into the present. I usually read only at night but I had started this book and found that I had to finish it the next morning to know the outcome. Had I known this book was so absorbing I would have given it as Christmas gifts.

In Ms. Miller's A Creed Country Christmas we get to meet the ancestors of those bad boy modern day ranchers Tyler, Dylan and Logan of Silver Springs Montana from Linda's Montana Creed series. Be prepared to spend Christmas in the wilds of Montana just after the turn of the last century and meet some of the most memorable characters you ever will in this touching and heart wrenching story of Lincoln Creed and Juliana Mitchell. Linda brings her characters to life with her descriptive dialogue as well as the bitter cold and blizzards of the Montana ranchers life where her words paint pictures for her readers so clearly that you can see the worry and joy on her character's faces. And not only her hero and heroine but all the characters are so well developed they could easily star in a story of their own. Her story line/plot is as always about family and how they came to be, about hard work, about love and about sacrifice that make her readers turning pages without stop. Her love scenes are tender and sweet and sensual. And the love story between Lincoln and Juliana is right out of the pages of our history books where widowed rancher finds and falls in love with schoolmarm. Only this schoolmarm has been teaching at the Indian school which has been disbanded and what she does with her students, well to find out you'll have to read the book. And read you will in this page turner historical romance by one of America's top romance writers. Be prepared to laugh and cry to stomp your feet and want to knock some sense in some of our characters. But most of all be prepared to fall in love with the forefathers of the Creeds.

This time with the Creeds, a trio of handsome, gentlemen who happen to be brothers and the beautiful, loving ladies they call their own. So, this is sure to be a treat, as we're still getting to know this family, this will be their First Christmas with all of us!!! Thank you so much Ms. Miller from a fan and grateful reader in Tucson, AZ

This Christmas novella features heartening drama on the frontier. I haven't read any of the other Creed books, so this introduced me to some of the characters in the series. I'll definitely want to check out more of Linda Lael Miller's books! In A Creed Country Christmas, Juliana Mitchell is at her wits end about what to do with the four Indian children left in her care after the government Indian school closed down. Disinherited by her brother for refusing to marry, she gets no help from him. Lincoln Creed has had no luck placing advertisements for a governess or housekeeper to help care for his daughter. He's even desperate enough to marry somebody, as long as it's just a marriage of convenience. Lincoln thinks he can help out Juliana and she might just agree to stay and care for Gracie. Snowed in at Lincoln's ranch, Juliana thinks this could work out, but what happens if she actually fall in love with him? I enjoyed the secondary stories and the fact that there weren't any loose ends, so this is good as a stand-alone story.
