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?
This Christmas contemporary is a glorious treat. Eli Pickett planned to spend his Christmas alone with his faithful dogs on Price Ranch: nothing more exciting than caking the cattle, feeding the chickens, and chasing after Houdini, his rebellious cow. Instead, he ends up nursing the beautiful Cassandra Horton after she crashes her car. Although Cass is a horrible cook, has trouble staying focused, and can't remember much about her life, he finds her to be nice, sexy company. Cass was running from her dead-end job, her pampered boss, and her boss's sleazy boyfriend. Although she has very few memories, she is happy to make new ones with the moody, gorgeous cowboy as they spend their days tending to the ranch and their nights focused on each other. When Cass's memory comes back piece by piece, she's horrified by what she recalls of her past behavior, and she must decide whether to return to her life or reveal her secrets to Eli and risk losing him altogether. There's enough chemistry to melt snow, the story's flow is as smooth as ice, and readers will have a jolly good time taking the journey with this adorable couple.
