Double the Great Reading!
The books are made up of 2 novellas, linked by a commonality. In our case, the stories are about two sisters, set on a ranch in Montana, and at Christmas. I don't know about you, but Christmas stories make me feel all warm and fuzzy, and this is my first ever Christmas release so it's quite exciting.
The first story, Snowbound Cowboy, is the story of Amelia Hughes, hero Boone Gifford, and Amelia's son Jesse, who is cute as a bug's ear. It's Jesse's Christmas wish that really kicks things off, but Boone is holding a secret that could ruin it all. Amelia's the nurturer of the family and she does a darned good job.
My story, A Bride For Rocking H Ranch, is about Kelley Hughes, the sister who hasn't got a domestic bone in her body but is great at running the Rocking H. She's volunteered to make Christmas dinner though, since Amelia has her hands full with Jesse and looking after their ailing Grandmother. Mack Dennison is a bit of an unlikely hero for a tough cowgirl, but he's exactly what she needs.
Of course it all winds up with two happy endings and hopefully a happy sigh for the reader.
If nothing else, writing this book made me hungry. Mack is a chef and I spent a lot of time looking for recipes, cooking, talking about cooking...I just added a few of those recipes to my website at www.donnaalward.com/recipecorner.htm.
We hope you enjoy our stories in this special 2 in 1 volume!
