From Emma Cane, Jennifer Ryan, and Katie Lane come three wildly romantic holiday stories featuring snowstorms, proposals, a sleigh ride … and, yes, cowboys.
The Christmas Cabin by Emma Cane
Sandy and her young son, Nate, are Christmas tree–hunting when a snowstorm strikes and an old ranch hand points them to an abandoned cabin. Little does Sandy know he sent cowboy Doug Thalberg to the same place. It's a Christmas all of Valentine Valley will remember.
Can't Wait by Jennifer Ryan
Before The Hunted Series began …
Though she is the woman of his dreams, Caleb Bowden knows his best friend's sister, Summer Turner, is off limits. He won't cross that line, which means Summer will just have to take the reins if she wants her cowboy for Christmas.
Baby It's Cold Outside by Katie Lane
Alana Hale hits the internet dating jackpot when she finds Clint McCormick. He's sensitive and responsible—not to mention wealthy. When he invites her to spend the holidays on his family's ranch, she readily accepts. But on the way there, a blizzard strands her with a womanizing rodeo cowboy who could change everything …
This review is only for Can’t Wait by Jennifer Ryan, the prequel to The Hunted series. I already read the first book, not knowing about this novella but it didn’t lessen my enjoyment and it’s perfect for the holidays!
It’s a sweet romance with two people who become friends before lovers. We come in at the point where Caleb and Summer already developed deep feelings for each other. He’s trying to honor some man code where you don’t date your best friend’s sister. She’s pulling out all the stops to force his hand.
I enjoyed this short, steamy and romantic story with the Christmas season as the backdrop. She’s feisty and when he goes all in, it’s pretty special. The ending was just what I wanted.
