When your boyfriend hands you the gift addressed to his other girlfriend…
Well, that’s a doozy of a Christmas downer. Rather than cry or pout, Annabelle’s determined to make a new tradition and what better place than Paradise Valley, Texas on a ranch, where a large family and a happily married college girlfriend are ready to brighten her spirits.
Case Dalton’s been living and working on his uncle’s ranch alongside his cousins for two years now. In the typical holiday spirit, chaos breaks out and he’s designated chief hospitality officer, seeing to a curvy gal who has all the right moves, if only she’d get into the holiday spirit… or him.
When Case lays on some of that down-home Christmas charm, Annabelle can’t help but be smitten by how sweet and attentive he is. Horse-drawn wagon rides, hot cocoa in front of a roaring fire, and her favorite holiday movies go a long way toward creating that new tradition she so craves. But when too much rum hits her eggnog, she finds herself standing beneath the mistletoe with Case poised to do the honors. What she never expects is learning a brand new meaning of holiday cheer.
