The Lone Star State doesn’t have to be lonely during Christmas time!

These authors combine their talents and excel at creating atmosphere and complex characters which infuse these stories with Texas history and evoke the grandeur of a bygone era and the indomitable pioneer spirit of the region.
Prepare to be swept off your feet by these heroic cowboys who will stop at nothing to make sure this Christmas is one to remember. Ideal for gift giving, The Cowboy Who Saved Christmas will be the fan-favorite collection of romance for the 2020 Christmas season.

When I met Trapper in the first story in this collection, Father Goose, I was hooked. I immediately could tell what kind of man he was by the way he thought about the part he played in the Civil War, as well as what he remembered of his family and childhood. Such great characterization was created in a few paragraphs, and I especially liked that it was done without the “grocery list” of physical descriptions.Jodi Thomas has a deft hand with establishing her characters.
When Trapper wins a poker game, the prize from one player is the opportunity to drive a wagon from Jefferson, Texas to Dallas, the big surprise is the cargo. Five young rich girls who are returning home from school for Christmas. The teamster was hired to haul the wagon, but he’d rather keep the advance money and stay safe. Here’s what he says to Trapper, “You’ll need a lady’s maid, a few men to ride shotgun, and probably a cannon to get them to Dallas. Every outlaw within a hundred miles is probably heard of the girls coming home and plans to ransom them after they leave you for the buzzards.”
Not an auspicious start for Trapper, but as the story unfolds, it’s clear that he is more than man enough for the challenge.
Then there is Emery, the shy cook and server in the saloon where Trapper has been gambling and eating his dinner since coming to Jefferson. He has not noticed her in any significant way, but she has noticed him. The way their lives intersect after she finds the treasure in a small storage room in the saloon is perfect.
What a wonderful story of Christmas hope and love.
