‘Tis the season for…

A pistol-totin’ woman who’s no angel

A tough rancher who doesn’t believe in miracles

Love that warms the coldest nights

After a year in Kuwait, Lucas Allen can’t wait to get back to his ranch for Christmas and meet his gorgeous Internet pal in person.

When he pulls in, there’s Natalie Clark right in his front yard with a pink pistol in her hand and a dead coyote at her feet.

Lucas is unfazed. But wait…is that a BABY in her arms?

A boot scootin’ good time… at Christmas!

I love Ms Brown’s books and this one was a delight to read. The dialogue is snappy and drew me in right away. I couldn’t put it down. Starting with the gun and the dead critter, yeah, she had me fast in my seat. This book is witty and charming–everything I wanted in a holiday read.

Lucas is a wounded man, maybe not in body, but in spirit. He’s a returning soldier and has in his mind what he wants to happen. Fate doesn’t agree and I’m glad. He’s tough and gritty, but I liked him right away. I’d like a Lucas of my own.

Natalie is a real piece of work, too, but in a good way. She’s got a baby that’s not Lucas’s and that could be a real problem. How the author handles this twist is great. Natalie isn’t a wilting violet and that’s what’s great about her. She’s a perfect match for Lucas–once they get done with the misunderstandings.

The words sparkle on the page and the pacing is great. I heartily recommend this book to someone wanting a heart-warming book for the holidays.
