Book Description:
On A Snowy Christmas Night
This cowboy will keep her very warm… After serving in the air force, cowboy Jesse McAllister has returned to the Montana countryside where he grew up. But the Sundance Dude Ranch just doesn't feel like home anymore. That is, until Shea Monroe arrives for the holidays…and sends him for a tailspin. Desperate to escape her family—and the human race—the ranch is sweet relief for a loner like Shea. But hot cowboys… What was she thinking? Worse yet, she's having delicious thoughts about one who seems just as alone as she is! All it takes is one night—and one very blustery blizzard—for their attraction to ignite big-time. One night where the only thing to do is give in….

One Night in the Ice Storm
The ice will melt between them...in one hot night. When Rachel arrives back in her hometown for the Christmas holiday, she doesn't expect to be stranded alone in an ice storm with David Harris. David is her brother's best friend, and she's known him all her life. She lost her virginity to him. And he's the one man she can never forgive. Despite all of the reasons she knows not to trust him, she finds herself falling for him again as they try to keep warm in the storm. No matter how irresistible she still finds him, she definitely plans to resist. But everything changes in only one night.

His Christmas Bride
The billionaire's bride--by Christmas! Blossom was not the type to attract eligible rich men and keep them--her marriage lasted six months before her husband dumped her--on Christmas Eve! So when Zak Hamilton--a billionaire businessman--demanded a date, she was determined not to get involved. But Zak found Blossom's modesty a challenge. In fact, he decided he would claim her as his bride--by Christmas!

What did you think of the book? (Why this book?, New Author? Read more by author? Keeping? Thoughts on Hero? Heroine?)
On A Snowy Christmas Night
Gotta love them cowboys who ride to your rescue... or fly in this case. Really cute story about a very shy girl who goes to Montana to volunteer with rescued animals rather than spend the holiday with her overbearing and spiteful family.

It really is a dream like story. Going off to help out only to come face to face with a handsome cowboy who saves your life and wants you all for his very own.

Good story!

One Night in the Ice Storm
Really sweet short story about a small town girl who is hurt as a teenager when the boy she loves sleeps with her and then doesn't speak to her again. She's hurt and it carries over into their adulthood when they are thrown together during an ice storm.

Is there more to the story than Rachel knows?

I really enjoyed this story and would recommend it to just about anyone. It wasn't overly sweet but was just the right amount of a good Christmas romance.

The Night Before Christmas
I love Christmas stories so I really hoped this would be a good book and it was a decent one. I can't say I loved all the stories but some of them were better than others.

"White Knight Christmas" by Lori Foster was a little short and abrupt. Felt like the author needed some more pages to really get the story off the ground. Still not bad.

Loved "Snowed Under" by Erin McCarthy. Great story about a little sister who gets the opportunity to seduce her brother's best friend who she's crushed on for years.

"Ms. Humbug" by Jill Shalvis was a little too much. Once fat girl, likes hot guy she works with and can't believe he'd want her even though he's persistent. And she's OCD which gets a little annoying.

"I'll Be Home for Christmas" by Kathy Love was actually rather cute. It was a tale of two people who feel in love young but split because of stupidity on the man's part and they find each other later only for Rob (the stupid guy) to realize just exactly how stupid he was to let Erica walk out of his life in high school.

"Seducing Scrooge" by Katherine Garbera is cute tale of two accountants. Our Scrooge is a workaholic who doesn't like the holidays but is going to be blackmailed out of it by a sassy woman who won't take no for an answer.

"The Good Girl's Guide to a Very Bad Christmas" by Kylie Adams was also pretty cute. Aspiring actress and coffee shop barista gets the guy of her dreams after making out a naughty Christmas List that he finds and plays Santa.

Cute stories and entertaining book.

His Christmas Bride
Blossom is at her twin sister's home to help out with the children because her sister is in the hospital. A knock on the door changes everything when Blossom comes face to face with her brother-in-laws boss who decides upon meeting Blossom that she is the girl for him.

Blossom had been hurt badly and she wants no part of men and their lies but Zak won't take no for an answer and comes out and tells her he'll wait until she figures out he's trustworthy.

Blossom spend a world-wind time with Zak only to get a job opportunity that makes her decide to break Zak's heart and her own in the process.

I like that this book was basically about learning to trust again especially when the real thing is standing in front of you.

A favorite.
