Mistletoe, holly, and cowboys, oh my! Christmas in Texas has never been sweeter.

Years ago, Chase Morgan traded in his dusty cowboy boots for the shimmering lights of New York City and a fast track up the corporate ladder. But when his shiny life is turned on end just in time for Christmas, Chase knows he needs to reevaluate even if that means going home to Texas to endure his least favorite holiday.

When Mr. Tall, Dark, and Smoking Hot walks through her door at the Magic Box Guest Ranch, Faith Walker sees just another handsome, rich exec looking to play cowboy for a week-at her expense. She’s sure the grumpy, but sexy as hell Scrooge will put a crimp in her holly jolly plans. Until a sizzling kiss has her seeing him in a new light.

Chase is haunted by secrets, and even though it goes entirely against her “hands off the guests” rule Faith is tempted to help him leave the past behind. As the magic of the season swirls around them, she is determined to succeed because now she is certain one sweet, cowboy Christmas will never be enough

Isn’t it funny how one minute something’s seem like the most important thing in your life; your job, your Victoria Secrets girlfriend, a multi-million dollar super bowl ad campaign…and then in a heartbeat or in Chase Morgan’s case the lack of one, his whole life changes and he is winging his way to visit his cousins in Sweet TX.
Faith run’s the Magic Box Guest ranch, after her uncle became ill. She has had dealings with NYC slickers of Chase Morgan’s type. Only when he finally arrives, he is not who she though he would be. And the misconceptions go on…until finally Chase’s truth comes out.
Now the air is clear, Faith and Chase become close; that is until memories and decisions of the past, threatens the future.
This is such a sweet Christmas novel; you really can’t help but fall in love with Chase and Faith and the rest of the crew at the Magic Box Guest Ranch. I am still chuckling at Bull’s opening lines to Chase. This book will make you laugh, smile and a few times’ groan “what are you doing you muppet!”
Sweet Cowboys Christmas is very well written and ties in to the series beautifully. I found no plot holes, the book flowed and it was descriptive enough, that I felt like I was there searching though Chase’s stuff along with Faith ;-)
I give Sweet Cowboy Christmas a well-deserved 9 out of 10.

“Anger and regret don’t change anything,” he said. “Haven’t you ever heard the saying, ‘the best revenge is to live well and be happy’?”
“You’re not at all who I think you are,” she said, her eyes squinting. “Are you?”
“I hope not.”
For a long moment, they stood there, gazes locked, the air around them thickening.
He took that last step closer to her. Simply because he couldn’t have stopped himself if he’d tried.
Then he did exactly what he’d promised himself he wouldn’t do. He reached out his hand and gently cupped her cheek. Her thick, dark lashes fluttered as she looked up at him. But she did not pull away. Unable to fight the desire burning through his blood, he lowered his head and pressed his lips to hers.
To his surprise and absolute satisfaction, she slid her hands up his chest, wrapped her lovely arms around his neck, and leaned into his kiss.
As she lifted to her toes, her full breasts pressed into his chest, and a hot zap of lust spiked deep in his groin. His arms went around her, pulling her closer just as her moist mouth parted and let him in.
When their tongues met, a surge of pleasure so different from anything he’d ever felt before lit him up inside. Kissing Faith was like the Fourth of July and Christmas morning all rolled into one. In the warm recess of her mouth, their tongues tangled, danced, and made love. Chase could have stood there all day, holding her in his arms, kissing her until she moaned with the need of something more.
When she did just that, he gathered his wits and ended the kiss by once more pressing his mouth to the center of her luscious lips, then one to her forehead.
With a sigh, she stepped away, and his arms were instantly void of the pleasure of her warmth.
“Why did you kiss me?” she asked.
“Because I wanted to. Why did you kiss me back?”
She grinned. “Because I wanted to.”
He returned the gesture. “Then we’d better be prepared. Because I’m guessing there are probably more where that one came from.”
She flashed a come-and-get-me grin as she spun on the heels of those worn-down boots, and said, “A girl can only hope.”
