…and a chance to win a Mistletoe Miracles 3 Day Vacation at Jodi Thomas’ Red River Condo!
When I started my story of the Maverick Ranch for MISTLETOE MIRACLES, I wanted to begin with Griffin. I saw him as a far better man than he thinks he is and I knew by the time readers followed him through the story, they’d agree with me.
Griffin is the oldest of three boys. When his father grew ill, he took over the ranch always making sure that his brothers saw themselves as equal owners.
Isolated and with the weight of the ranch on his shoulders, Griffin knows that he has to do something to save the ranch. In the years since his father and mother died, he’s tried everything and now he’s faced with one option open.
He’ll have to marry for money. Oh, he promises he’ll just need to borrow enough to make the loan payment for the year, then he’ll be back on his feet. He promised he’ll be honest about why he’s marrying and he’ll be good to any woman taking him on as a husband.
But he’s totally unprepared for Sunlan. She’s everything any man, any rancher could want in a wife. She’s beautiful, smart, from an old ranching family, and to Griffin’s surprise, needs to get married worse than he does.
I hope you love Griffin, Sunlan and all the characters in MISTLETOE MIRACLES.
I’m very excited about our new contest for a three day vacation at Red River, New Mexico–either a weekend or during the week. You’ll be stepping into an enchanted place that is very personal to me.
Years ago, my sons were wanting to learn to ski and every time we would go to a little town in New Mexico, it seemed to cost us a fortune. I saw some condos up there and I thought, you know, if we bought a little condo that would solve the problem. Turned out to be the best thing I ever did. Many times a year I go up there whenever I’m reading through a book I’ve just written or if I’m trying to think of an idea. There’s something about sitting out on my patio and watching a branch of the Red River go passing by.
The town of Red River has always been a special place for me. It’s in the enchanted circle in northern New Mexico. Now we have a little bitty place up there, a little bitty hideaway where I go up to write. And It’s always fun. My favorite thing to do in the fall is to curl up in a blanket out on the balcony and watch the Red River go by as I begin a book. Red River, New Mexico is an enchanted place I hope you will enjoy as much as I do.
