A family on the brink of falling apart and fighting tooth and nail to save their livelihood, their family relationsips, and for their happily ever afters. It's not always the pretties and fluffiest of reading but goodness so worth it.
Yall give Nicole a big welcome and hit those comments (and maybe grab some tissues)! ~anna
In my current release, TRUE-BLUE COWBOY CHRISTMAS, Thack Lane is a young widower trying to raise his seven-year-old daughter, Kate, with the help of his not-always-helpful father. When Kate meets the new neighbor, Summer Shaw, Kate knows just what she wants for Christmas. So, I thought it would be fun to write Santa a little letter from Kate’s point of view.
I have been very good this year! Well, mostly. Sometimes I get a little bored. I just want to explore! Daddy says it’s very dangerous, but sometimes Grandpa pretends to sleep and let’s me sneak out. Daddy gets mad, but if I didn’t sneak out, I never would have met Summer! She looks just like the fairy queen in one of my books, and I think Daddy likes her an awful lot. Daddy smiles real big at her and sometimes they even hold hands.
I really want a fairy queen doll, a new fairy wand, and some new fairy books for Christmas, but most of all I want Summer to move onto the ranch with us. She can marry Daddy and I could call her Mom since mine died when I was a baby. She could sing fairy songs and Daddy can tell my fairy stories every night.
It wouldn’t be a present just for me. Summer makes everyone happy. When Summer is around, Grandpa plays his harmonica and Daddy doesn’t work quite so hard, and he even lets me explore more.
I think we make Summer happy too. She made the cookies we left for you, so I hope you really like them!
Thank you, Santa! I’ll be extra, extra good next year if I get Summer for Christmas!
Christmas spirit? Bah, humbug.
With Christmas right around the corner, Summer Shaw is searching for somewhere to belong. When her neighbor's young daughter takes a shine to her, she is thrilled. But Thack is something else altogether. He's got walls around his heart that no amount of holiday wishes can scale. Yet as joy comes creeping back to the lonely homestead, Summer and Thack may just find their happily ever after before the last of the Christmas miracles are through...
