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 re-evaluate even if that means going home to Texas to endure his least favourite 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...
It is no secret that I love Candis Terry’s Sweet, Texas series. Cowboys, family, and a sweet romance make this series delightful. Terry makes it all the sweeter with her small-town Texas, setting. Therefore, it only makes sense that I had to add Sweet Cowboy Christmas to my Ho-Ho-Ho read-a-thon reads. I am so glad that I did. Chase and Faith were sweet, and despite it being, a novella Terry gave us a sweet slow-building romance.
Espresso review of Sweet Cowboy Christmas
Chase Morgan traded his cowboys boot for the big city and big dreams. A health scare reminds him of Christmas past and he heads home to Texas to reassess life. Not sure, he can handle going home to the family homestead and its memories, he books a cabin at the Magic Box Guest ranch where he meets proprietor Faith Walker. The tale that unfolds shows them both the meaning of Christmas and just how sweet life can be. I loved the banter and chemistry between them. Terry weaved a slow-building romance with tender moments. She weaves in a little heat and some romantic cuddles by the fire. Perfect for a light, feel good holiday read by your fire.
Sweet Cowboy Christmas is a short, sweet novella that will get you in the holiday mood. Even though this is part of the Sweet, Texas series it will work as a standalone. It’s the perfect way to try out the series/author.
