A Cowgirl's Christmas (Unabridged)
For years Callan Carrigan has been her father's right-hand man, so when her dad's will names city slicker Court McAllister the new owner of the Circle C Ranch, Callan feels betrayed on every level.
Then she and her sisters find their mother's diaries, hidden from them by their father since their mother's accidental death 18 years ago, and the shocking revelations explain a lot. Reeling, Callan seeks refuge in the local saloon, where it seems no one can reach her until Court offers her a challenge.
If she agrees to be foreman at the Circle C for one year, he'll deed the ranch back to her and her sisters. The deal seems too sweet at first - until Callan realizes Court has his eyes on something she protects even more than her family's land: her heart.
A Cowgirl's Christmas
This had a good start then failed to deliver a good climax or a believable love story. Too bad.
