Who wants a Long, Tall Cowboy Christmas?

“This goes down like a cup of hot cocoa–warm and sweet.” –Entertainment Weekly

A heartwarming holiday read from USA Today bestselling author Carolyn Brown

Nash Lamont is a man about as solitary as they come. That’s exactly why ranch life in middle-of-nowhere Happy, Texas suits him. So what the heck is he doing letting a beautiful widow and her three rambunctious children temporarily move in? Before he knows it, they’re stringing Christmas lights and decorating the tree… and he’s having the time of his life. But after everything he’s been through, Nash knows this kind of happiness doesn’t last.

Kasey Dawson thought she’d never get over the death of her husband. Nash, with his strong hands and infinite patience, is stirring something she hasn’t felt in a long time. Kasey knows the sexy cowboy isn’t telling her everything about this past, though. And she refuses to risk heartbreak all over again. But her kids have a plan of their own: Nothing will keep them from having a real family again-even if it takes a little help from Santa himself.

“Genuinely sweet.” –Publishers Weekly

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.

Carolyn Brown does it again with a Heartwarming, Sexy read! Nash was in the military and moved to Happy, Texas. He now lives next door to Kasey who lives with her brothers and her children. Her husband was in the same platoon as Nash. Kasey has to take care of Nash when he falls of a ladder and gets a concussion, because of his PTSD, they need to make sure that any hallucinations are cause by the concussion and not the PTSD. Kasey moves into Nashes’  house with her kids until he is released from the doctor. This is where things really start to heat up between Kasey and Nash. He also comes to care greatly for Kasey’s kids. They all get ready for Christmas by putting up the tree and lights. I loved this book and the series. Carolyn Brown is truly a gifted author. I give
Long, Tall Cowboy Christmas (Happy, Texas) 5/5 stars. I recommend this book to everyone!!

“Jud with his slow, Texas drawl is one sexy cowboy who will have readers falling in love with him. His romantic connection with Fiona sizzles. Brown’s modern storytelling and fun-filled plot will engage readers and wrap them up in this sweet, Southern holiday romance.” —RT Book Reviews


‘Tis the night before Christmas and all through the house is the presence of one wickedly hot cowboy who’s come to stay for the holiday. Fiona Logan is downright shocked to return to her childhood home and find that the tall blond stranger who came to her rescue on an icy road will be sleeping just across the hall from her bedroom. Talk about temptation . . .

Jud Dawson never believed the Lucky Penny Ranch would live up to its name until now. Fiona is gorgeous, smart, funny, and everything he thought he’d never find. Now all he has to do is convince her to stick around town instead of hightailing it back to Houston. But with wild weather, nosy neighbors, and a new baby in the family, getting her to admit that she’s falling in love might just take a Christmas miracle.

Merry Cowboy Christmas (Lucky Penny Ranch) is the best yet of the LUCKY PENNY RANCH SERIES! Carolyn Brown is a writing genius! This series has been a joy to read. I love the characters of Jud and Fiona, and the secondary character Truman was great. Fiona comes back to town down on her luck after being divorced for a year.  She meets Jud when her vehicle has a blow out. He stops and helps her to get to her Mom’s house. Fiona is now living across the hallway from Jud and that is too close for temptation, and giving in to temptation has never been sweeter. When their neighbor’s house is lost to fire, they offer their home to them. Now Truman and his wife are living with them and he is a Christmas Grinch. Can they perform a Christmas miracle and have him love the holiday? This is a heartwarming book. I love the way that they treat Truman. I loved this book and series, and cannot wait for the next in the series. I give MERRY COWBOY CHRISTMAS 5/5 STARS.

It will take a miracle bigger than the state of Texas for these two feuding families to survive the holidays!

Opposites might attract…
The Brennans and the Gallaghers put aside their one-hundred-year feud every Tuesday for their weekly poker game. This week, the stakes are sky-high. Goaded to recklessness, Declan Brennan bets one thousand dollars that he can woo the next woman to walk into the saloon. A minute later, fiery-haired Betsy Gallagher pushes through the doors. If Declan can tame this wild Gallagher, he’ll have earned every penny.

If they don’t kill each other first…
Betsy can outshoot anybody in Burnt Boot and loves ranching more than anything-until she falls for Declan. He’s fallen for her too. But when she discovers what sparked their courtship, Declan will need a Christmas miracle to save his hide-and his heart.

“Captivating…filled with love and laughter!” -The Romance Reviews


I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.

A Cowboy Christmas Miracle (Burnt Boot, Texas) is a masterpiece! I love this series! The characters just come alive on the page. Decaln is a Brennan and Betsy is a Gallagher, the two should never be friends or even fall in love with one another. The have been feuding between the families for generations. The families are constantly sabotaging something. One is called the pig war, the shit war, and can you guess what this will be called? Well Declan and Betsy’s brother make a bet at their poker game that the next woman to walk in the bars door, that Declan couldn’t make that woman fall in love and in bed with Declan. Guess who walks in the door? Yep, you guessed right, Betsy! Now, there is one hitch to this bet. Declan has loved Betsy from afar, because a Brennan would date or marry a Gallagher. In true Carolyn Brown fashion, you have humor throughout the book. I recommend this book and series to everyone! I give A COWBOY CHRISTMAS MIRACLE 5/5 STARS.
