A LAWMAN'S CHRISTMAS
The sudden death of the town Marshall leaves Blue River, Texas, without a lawman…and twenty-five-year-old Dara Rose Nolan without a husband.
As winter approaches and her meagre seamstress income dwindles, she is left with three options. Except Dara Rose won't give up her two young daughters, refuses to join the fallen women of the Bitter Gulch Saloon and can't fathom condemning herself to another loveless marriage. Unfortunately, she must decide, and soon - because there's a new Marshall in town, and she's living under his roof!
With the heart of a cowboy, Clay McKettrick plans to start a ranch and finally settle down. He isn't interested in uprooting Dara Rose and her children, but he is interested in giving her protection, friendship...and passion.
When they say ‘I do' to a marriage of convenience, the temporary lawman's Christmas wish is to make Dara Rose his permanent wife…
AN OUTLAW'S CHRISTMAS
With his wild heart, Sawyer McKettrick isn't ready to settle down on the Triple M family ranch in Arizona. So he heads to Blue River, Texas, to seek a job as marshal. But in a blinding snowstorm he's injured-and collapses into the arms of a prim and proper lady in calico.
The shirtless, bandaged stranger recuperating in teacher Piper St. James's room behind the schoolhouse says he's a McKettrick, but he looks like an outlaw. As they wait out the storm, the handsome loner has Piper remembering long-ago dreams of marriage and motherhood. But for how long is Sawyer willing to call Blue River home?
As the gray skies clear, Piper's one holiday wish just might bring two lonely hearts together forever.
