HOPE FOR THE HOLIDAYS
Veterinarian Olivia O’Ballivan communicates easily with animals, but men are another story. Especially globe-trotting architect-turned-rancher Tanner Quinn. The grouchy single father just wants to be left alone, but he needs Olivia’s help. His daughter’s pony is sick and he desperately needs someone to care for it.
Olivia is less than impressed by the imposing Grinch, but she can’t turn down an animal in need, especially one so lonely. When Tanner’s daughter, Sophie, comes home in time for the holidays, they conspire together to get Tanner into the Christmas spirit. But Olivia will need to work a special kind of Christmas magic if she wants to heal Tanner’s stone heart. It will take a holiday miracle to transform Tanner into a rancher—and family man—for all seasons.

The daughter of a town marshal, Linda Lael Miller is a #1 New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author of more than 100 historical and contemporary novels, most of which reflect her love of the West. Raised in Northport, Washington, Linda pursued her wanderlust, living in London and Arizona and traveling the world before returning to the state of her birth to settle down on a horse property outside Spokane. Linda traces the birth of her writing career to the day when a Northport teacher told her that the stories she was writing were good, that she just might have a future in writing. Later, when she decided to write novels, she endured her share of rejection before she sold Fletcher's Woman in 1983 to Pocket Books. Since then, Linda has successfully published historicals, contemporaries, paranormals, mysteries and thrillers before coming home, in a literal sense, and concentrating on novels with a Western flavor. For her devotion to her craft, the Romance Writers of America awarded her their prestigious Nora Roberts Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007. Hallmark Movie Channel is developing a series based on Linda's Big Sky Country novels. Her latest book, Forever a Hero, a March 21, 2017 HQN Books release, is the third in her Carsons of Mustang Creek series. Her first mainstream Civil War novel will be published in May 2018. Dedicated to helping others, "The First Lady of the West" personally financed fifteen years of her Linda Lael Miller Scholarships for Women, which she awarded to women 25 years and older who were seeking to improve their lot in life through education. She anticipates that her next charitable endeavors will benefit four-legged critters.
