New York Times bestselling author Donna Grant returns to Texas, where a small-town legend just might find the greatest gift of all in The Christmas Cowboy Hero...
’Tis the season for ex-Navy SEAL Clayton East to come home for the holidays—even if the mood at home is anything but festive. His father is ill. The East Ranch is in financial trouble. And now it’s on Clayton, the prodigal son, to make sure his family doesn’t lose everything.
Headstrong Abby Harper is like a mother to her younger brothers, who she’s helped raise since she was a teenager. Keeping them in line is no small task while she’s also working toward her college degree. And now that one of her brothers has been arrested for stealing cattle at the East Ranch, Abby is at her wits’ end. But there is a silver lining: Clayton East. He believes in second chances, and is willing to give one to her brother this Christmas. Letting beautiful Abby—and the inescapable longing in his heart—off the hook, however, is a whole ’nother story. Could it be that the woman of this local hero’s dreams has been back at home all along?
“Off-the-charts chemistry and a breath-stealing plot.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) on The Protector
The Christmas Cowboy Hero is a heartwarming romance from one of my favorite authors, Donna Grant. I loved this book.
Why did I love this book?
- This romance brings together two souls that have had a painful past. Clayton East is an ex-Navy SEAL returning home after learning of his father’s illness. He’s stayed away from the family ranch for years, so coming home means dealing with a painful loss. Abby Harper is headstrong and has been raising her younger brothers since their Mother left them. She’s worked hard to support her brothers, but it hasn’t been easy. When Abby’s brother is arrested for stealing cattle at the East Ranch, she fears her family will be torn apart. But the moment Clayton and Abby meet their chemistry is strong and Clayton gives Abby’s brother a chance to work off the loss. All the characters of this story tugged at my heart. I felt their desperation, pain and ultimately their joy.
- The Christmas Cowboy Hero is a romance with the message of the importance of family. The Harper family’s love and support for each other was moving and genuine. The East family finally heals from their tragic loss. Together, Clayton and Abby overcome their pain and fears, and find the happiness they both deserve.
- This is the first audiobook from narrator Rebecca Estrella. I thought she did a good job and I felt the emotion of the characters.
The Christmas Cowboy Hero is a romance you can enjoy all year long. The romance was sweet and sexy, and the mystery of the stolen cattle was suspenseful. This is the first book for this series and I can’t wait to read the next book.
