What’s better than Christmas? Christmas and Cowboys. Contemporary romance stars Emma Cane, Jennifer Ryan, and Katie Lane join together for a holiday anthology to remember.
“The Christmas Cabin” by Emma Cane
Sandy, recently diagnosed with MS and abandoned by her husband, is determined to make Christmas special for her five-year-old Nate. While they’re trooping through the woods to cut down their Christmas tree, a snowstorm arises, and a mysterious old ranch hand points them toward an abandoned cabin. Little do they realize, the ranch hand also guides cowboy Doug Thalberg to the same place…
“Can’t Wait” by Jennifer Ryan
Before The Hunted series, Caleb and Summer had a whirlwind romance not to be forgotten... Caleb Bowden has a lot to thank his best friend, Jack, for - saving his life in Iraq and giving him a job helping him run his family’s ranch. He also introduced him to the most incredible woman he’s ever met. Too bad he can’t ask her out. You do not date your best friend’s sister. Summer and Caleb share a closeness she’s never felt for anyone, but the stubborn man refuses to turn the flirtatious friendship into something meaningful. Frustrated and tired of wishing to be happy, Caleb tells Jack how he feels about Summer. With his friend’s help, he plans a surprise Christmas proposal she’ll never forget - because he can’t wait to make her his wife.
“Baby It's Cold Outside” by Katie Lane
Alana Hale is tired of irresponsible beach bums whose only plan for the future is catching the next “awesome” wave. So when she tries her luck with an internet dating service and ends up hitting the Responsible-Sensitive-Man jackpot, she wastes no time accepting Clint McCormick’s invitation to spend the holidays on his family’s ranch. But when an unexpected blizzard strands Alana, she’ll be forced to find refuge in the arms of a womanizing rodeo cowboy who knows how to take the chill off a cold winter night. Now Alana will have to make a choice between the man who heats her blood and the man who touches her heart. Or will she? Mistaken identity will give Alana the man of her dreams and a very “Marry” Christmas.
What is better than three fabulous Christmas novellas from three fabulous authors? Three fabulous novellas that each bring something different to this wonderful Christmas anthology. Get your mistletoe ready because once you read these stories, you'll be off on your own hunt for a hunky cowboy before you can say "Merry Christmas!"
"The Christmas Cabin" - This sweet story is the prequel for Emma's Valentine Valley series. All of her favorite characters are gathered around to listen to the story of how mom and dad met. I loved this one for the simple fact that its a sweet story about reminiscing of times gone by. My favorite part of the story was Nate. For a little fella, he sure was wise beyond his years. I definitely added the series to my TBR and I look forward to reading it in the coming months.
"Can't Wait" - I absolutely loved this story! I've been wanting to read Jennifer's Hunted series and now that I've read this novella, I bumped it up my rapidly growing TBR. The chemistry between Caleb and Summer was off the charts. I loved how loyal Caleb is to his friend even though it is killing him not to be with Summer. The build up between the two was incredibly sweet. Things went to sizzling hot once Caleb got Jack's approval to be with his sister. Yum!
"Baby It's Cold Outside" - This novella was freaking hysterical. I loved the banter between Alana and Clint. Poor Alana has got to get her priorities in order. She has a list of attributes she wants in a match and ripped abs aren't on her list. Girl, that just won't do. Clint was a naughty boy for not telling her the truth. The chemistry between Alana and Clint was sizzling. Even without the alcohol, I don't think she stood a chance. Oh, but what a way to go!
All I Want for Christmas is a Cowboy has something for everyone. Cowboy lovers get three incredibly fine specimens. Christmas lovers get three fun stories that'll keep you warm. Romance lovers get three adorable stories of incredible chemistry. What's not to love?
EMMA CANE grew up reading and soon discovered that she liked to write passionate stories of teenagers in space. Her love of “passionate stories” has never gone away, although today she concentrates on the heartwarming characters of Valentine, her fictional small town in the Colorado Rockies. Now that her three children are grown, Emma loves spending time crocheting and singing (although not necessarily at the same time), and hiking and snowshoeing alongside her husband Jim and two rambunctious dogs Apollo and Uma.

KATIE LANE started writing in fifth grade when she wrote a fictional story about being a skirt.(yes, you read that correctly. The story was told in first-skirt rather than first-person.) Since then, she’s stuck to telling stories about people. Going Cowboy Crazy is her first novel in the Deep in the Heart of Texas series. Katie lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico with her high school sweetheart and can be contacted through her website www.katielanebooks.com.
