Christmas arrives early when a fateful encounter leads two strangers to unexpected love in this holiday romance from New York Times bestselling author Jessica Clare.
Christmas may be coming, but it's just another day at the ranch as far as Eli Pickett is concerned. Someone has to take care of the herd and that means no holiday vacation for him. But that's just the way he likes it--it’s not like he has a woman to spend time with anyways. Most women don't want the ranch life, or the surly, silent cowboy that comes with it. Fine with him. He'd rather have the quiet of a roaring fire and the company of his dogs.
Cassandra Horn is trying to make it to her parents' winter cabin in Wyoming before the blizzard hits. She desperately needs a vacation from the chaos of Manhattan...and her boss’s boyfriend, who is making her life miserable. But Cass never makes it to the cabin.
A raging snowstorm causes her car to crash, where she's found unconscious by Eli. When Cass wakes, she has no memories of who she is. Eli takes one look at Cass's big blue eyes and dark curls, and like a Christmas miracle, falls head over heels in love. But while the attraction is mutual, can she give her heart to this cowboy if she’s not sure it’s hers to give?
Doesn’t everyone want a cowboy for Christmas? All I Want for Christmas is a Cowboy by Jessica Clare was a sweet, sexy trapped in a cabin romance with a neat little twist. Grab your hot cocoa or peppermint mocha and enjoy this tale filled with Christmas magic.
New Yorker, Cassandra Horn is looking to escape her employers touchy-feely, cannot take the hint, celebrity boyfriend. She has tried telling her boss who laughs it off. So with her boss out of the country, she decides a few weeks alone at her folks Wyoming cabin is exactly what she needs.
Rancher, Eli Pickett understands that animals don’t stop eating over the holidays and volunteers to be the only hand to stay behind during the holiday. He is looking forward to the quiet time alone and seeing to the animals care.
But a snowstorm and a tree have other ideas. Poor Cass crashes her car and ends up with amnesia. Lucky, Eli and his dog find her. With a blizzard bearing down on them, he takes her to his ranch. The tale that unfolds was sweet, sexy and offered moments of humor and cute puppies!
Clare mixed in heat and character growth as these two lonely people find their slice of happy. It was wonderful watching Eli, who is such a loner, open-up and take a chance. When he ate Cass’s pancakes I found myself smitten with this sexy cowboy. A little humor, stolen kisses and holiday magic await you.
From ranch life to trimming the tree All I Want for Christmas is a Cowboy, delivered a fun, predictable holiday romance that had all the elements to make you smiling this holiday season.

Reading this book contributed to these challenges:
Nobody wants a calm and quiet cowboy companion? Has he met me before? 😛 I really like the sound of the two characters being lone wolves but finding solace in each other. Sounds like the perfect read for this season <3
LOL. Yes I like quiet companions too.
Wonderful review Kimberly. Christmas, cowboys, dogs and romance?? What’s not to like. Sounds like a great one.
Thanks Carla, and yes this was a fun one.

I love those trapped in a cabin scenarios to be honest, they are some of my favorites to read during the Christmas season. And I love this author so I gotta grab this one up. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
I love them any old time, but agree they seem to be a little more magical this time of year.
I love trapped in a cabin romances. Never know what’s going to happen.sherry @ <a

This sounds like a cute story – and I love pancakes 🙂
You will get a laugh out of the scene then.
Definitely going on my “TBR” list! Thanks for the post.
Enjoy. I like a snow storm romance.
Sounds like a good holiday read. Gorgeous cover.
It was. Yes, I like the cover too.
Another sweet, cute and adorable Christmas romance. You have me curious about the pancake eating.
Oh my goodness that was a funny scene.
This is one of the Christmas reads I have lined up, so I’m glad to see you enjoyed it! 🙂
I hope you enjoy it.
Oh man! This does sound fun and I hesitated when it was offered. I’d already picked four other cowboy holiday romances, though. LOL Guess I love them. Maybe for next year…
There ya go. Yep, I am pretty much Christmas booked out.
Okay, you sold me, Kim. I want one. I’m a sucker for stranded in a blizzard romances. Excellent review!!
Hehe..that is what drew me to this one.
The amnesia is never a plot device I enjoy. Otherwise, it sounds fun. Anne – Books of My Heart
It isn’t a personal favorite for me either.
I agree, who don’t want a story like that?
Cowboys, beautiful settings and puppies!
I haven’t read her in any of her incarnations but this sounds super sweet. I love the heroine getting amnesia and you’ve got my interests peaked Kim. And yes I agree who doesn’t want a cowboy for Christmas 🙂
This was my first under any name,
i hope he calls her parents to let them know that she’s safe! or at least tell me she’s not that amnesiac
He can’t. She doesn’t know who she is and the storm has cut of all communication. The roads are impassable.?
Oh no! Poor parents!
A cowboy for Christmas sounds like a reasonable wish to me 😛 I admit I don’t particularly like predictable romances, but this sounds like a nice holiday read, and it’s hard to say no to a cowboy 😉
The trope is an old one, so you know the gist of the story. The author added her own spin,
