Darn Good Cowboy Christmas (Spikes & Spurs #3)
by Carolyn Brown
The author of the #1 bestselling Christmas romance in 2010 (Honky Tonk Christmas) creates a new installment in her sexy contemporary cowboy romance series that showcases her amazing Southern voice.
Born and raised in a traveling carnival, all Liz Hanson ever wanted for Christmas was a home that didn't have wheels. After she was old enough to date she added one more item: a sexy cowboy.
She's about given up on Santa ever bringing either one when her father dies and leaves her an ugly house and twenty acres in Texas. Then rancher Raylen O'Donnell walks onto her property...
My Thoughts and review
I enjoyed this book it was simply a fun read with many laughs. Liz all her life has lived the life in the carnival never putting down roots. But, even though she loves the life of it she has grown tired of it and wants to set roots down. Her Uncle has a ranch that she can have if she decides after time that she will want to stay and set some roots down the ranch is a vast estate that comes with pets ! LOL. Liz has not been back to the ranch in quiet awhile but, wonders if Raylen O'Donnell may still be around as he was once the man who haunted her dreams.
Liz's one wish through all this is to have a Christmas tree and a cowboys for Christmas she loves Christmas and all the decorations.Once Liz arrives ti the ranch who does she encounter in her new home but, the sexy cowboy Raylen.
The story was a throughly enjoyable read for me. I found Liz to be and fun loving person with a big caring heart and of those of her friends.I just loved the way she talked and went about stuff her antic's were funny. She was a fortune teller and a belly dancer in the carnival which she was rather good at. She is also a very wealth women who goes to work everyday and does the one thing she loves.She will miss the carnival the friends and the life she has made but, she wants a different kind of life now. Raylen the sexy cowboy has always wanted Liz since they were kids and the sparks fly when they are around each other.These two lovebirds are given a second chance at love.
The chemistry between the two were endearing and so were the sexual encounters. There passionate love scenes are a little more subdued than this writer normally writes but, I found that to be okay because the book had tons of other things to keep you interested in.The other cast members were funny and engaging with all those other sexy cowboys and there flirting and hot looks. As all books have there is always one jealous flirtatious women trying to steal the man you want.Love is never easy but, one thing is for sure she will give it all shes got to get the one thing she wants most for Christmas and thats the Cowboy of her heart!
I just love this author and all her cowboy books they are all different but, connect the characters from one book to the next.The books are all full of life humor and romance all wrapped up into one! A recommended light enjoyable read.
