A Christmas kiss from a cowboy…
Ben Radcliffe reckons it’ll be a cold day in hell before he considers a serious relationship or family of his own—with good reason. When he delivers a “secret” present to the Last Chance Ranch, however, Ben catches a glimpse of what family could be. And suddenly this lone cowboy finds himself under the mistletoe…planting one heck of a kiss on a stunning woman!
Genealogist and academic Molly Gallagher is all about family. And even if Ben’s secrets make him as skittish as a wild mustang, there’s nothing Molly loves more than an enigma. Especially a ridiculously sexy one! But the magic of Christmas—and the Last Chance Ranch—might not be enough to wrangle a cowboy who can’t trust himself…

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.
A LAST CHANCE CHRISTMAS is a heartwarming, fast read. The characters and storyline are well-developed. Ben comes from an abusive family and he has decided to not get married or have kids. He does not want to be like his father. When he delivers a custom-made saddle to the LAST CHANCE RANCH, he meets Molly. Molly is there to get information for her family tree. She loves her family, and one day have one of her own. When she meets Ben , sparks fly between them. A wrench is thrown into Molly’s plans on returning back to Arizona Monday when a blizzard hits the area and shuts down the airport. They return to the ranch for the Christmas celebration and Molly shows him that he is not anything like his Dad, and would never beat his kids. He is very patient with the children on the ranch and when one of the kids decides to make the saddle look better with a marker, he does not hurt the child. This proves to him that he is not like his father, and he might just have a chance at a family. This is such a heartwarming tale of lust(love) at first sight. I always love Vicki Lewis Thompson’s books, and give this one 5/5 stars.
