Our reviews:  One Night with a Cowboy
                     Two Times as Hot
                     In a Cowboy's Bed
                     He's the One

Casey Harrington will never forget that the Christmas she turned 8 years old she got an Easy Bake Oven instead of the Cowboy Cody doll she’d begged Santa for. It’s a disappointment that shaped her life. Now, twenty years later, she is a high-powered marketing executive living and working in NYC, who can’t cook, doesn’t want to, and has a strange obsession with all things cowboy related. A job offer too good to be true brings her to a Colorado ranch where she is instructed by her new boss to learn the Western lifestyle from Bonner Blue Boyd, ranch manager and living personification of her childhood crush Cowboy Cody.

Bonner doesn’t know what to do with this city girl on the ranch, particularly since he expected “Casey” to be a man. He fights his attraction to her for as long as any man could, and even when he gives in and the sparks fly, both know it could never work for the long run. She’s city and he’s country. To be together either she has to sacrifice the world she’s always known or he does. What they need is a miracle…luckily it’s the right season for those.

Note: This is an erotic romance with a little back door action.

The Top 10 Lessons I’ve Learned from Holiday Movies

#10 From The Year Without a Santa Claus’s Heat Miser and Snow Miser—It doesn’t matter if you do have the power to control the weather, ultimately your mother’s always right.

#9 From The Grinch Who Stole Christmas—It’s hard to stay grumpy while listening to a rousing holiday tune.

#8 From Christmas Vacation (Chevy Chase)— Suck it up. Everyone has to deal with annoying relatives over the holidays. Spiking the eggnog helps.

#7 From A Christmas Story (Peter Billingsley)—Be grateful. No matter how crappy you think that gift you got is, someone somewhere got a worse gift.

#6 From Elf (Will Ferrell)—There’s only one real Santa. All the others smell like cheese.

#5 From A Charlie Brown Christmas (animated)—We all have a domineering, know-it-all “Lucy” in our lives. Just let her talk, and then go ahead and do whatever the hell you want anyway.

#4 From White Christmas (Bing Crosby, Rosemary Clooney, Danny Kaye)— A really fabulous, show-stopping holiday outfit makes everything okay.

#3 From Christmas in Connecticut (Barbara Stanwyck)—You don’t really need to know how to cook if you have a good caterer. We writers fake stuff like that all time.

#2 From Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (animated)—Don’t pick on anyone who is different. You might need them to save your ass one day.

#1 And finally, the lesson I’ve learned from watching every one of the Hallmark and Lifetime Channels’ made-for-TV holiday movies—All of life’s problems can be resolved with a satisfying happily-ever-after within the allotted 2 hours (including commercials).

I wish everyone strength, patience, and good will this holiday season. You’re going to need them all to get through it! And if you’re looking for a holiday diversion to load onto your eReader and escape from the madness for a while, might I suggest my A COWBOY FOR CHRISTMAS. I wrote it during NaNoWriMo while those holiday movies mentioned above played in the background for the entire month of November. It’s one of my favorite books. Little confession—my dream is to see it made into one of those cheesy TV Christmas movies. They’d have to take out all the sex, of course.
