October 31, 2017
Available in: Paperback, e-Book
Keep a song in your heart this holiday season…
When Beckett McKinley’s twin boys need help preparing a Christmas song for their father, music teacher Ella Baker agrees on one condition: they teach her to ride a horse. Her decision certainly has nothing to do with the crush she has on sexy single dad Beck…
It isn’t disinterest spurring Beck to keep his distance—if anything, the spark is too strong, with Ella reminding him of his ex-wife. But with the holidays approaching, Beck and Ella will have to overcome past hurts if they want to keep each other warm this Christmas…
The Rancher’s Christmas Song originally published November 2017 in Harlequin Special Edition #2581 in mass market paperback and eBook.
Also included, a Cowboys of Cold Creek favorite—The Cowboy’s Christmas Miracle (originally published November 2008 in Silhouette Special Edition #1933)!
Jenna Wheeler’s Christmas is not looking very merry and bright, until her gorgeous new landlord, Carson McRaven, helps her find the Christmas spirit where she least expects it—in his arms.
I’m not one of those people who knew from birth she was destined to become a writer. I always loved to read and throughout my childhood I could usually be found with a book in my hands. To the disgust of my friends, I even enjoyed creative writing assignments that made them all groan. But I had other dreams besides writing. I wanted to be an actress or a teacher or a lawyer.
Life took a different turn for me, though, when my mother made me take a journalism elective in high school (thanks, Mom!). I knew the first day that this was where I belonged.
After I graduated from college in journalism, I took a job at the local daily newspaper and I reveled in the challenge and the diversity of it. One day I could be interviewing the latest country music star, the next day I was writing about local motorcycle gangs or interviewing an award-winning scientist.
Through it all — through the natural progression of my career from reporter to editor — I wrote stories in my head. Not just any stories, either, but romances, the kind of books I have devoured since junior high school, with tales about real people going through the trials and tribulations of life until they find deep and lasting love.
I had no idea how to put these people on paper, but knew I had to try — their stories were too compelling for me to ignore. I sold my first book in 1995 and now, more than 40 books later, I’ve come to love everything about writing, from the click of the computer keys under my fingers to the “that’s-it!” feeling I get when a story is flowing.
I write full-time now (well, as full-time as I can manage juggling my kids!) amid the raw beauty of the northern Utah mountains.
Even though I might not have dreamed of being a writer when I was younger, now I simply can’t imagine my life any other way.
