THE COWBOY’S CHRISTMAS BABY
Readers will be quickly swept up in Brown’s second Cowboys & Brides novel. Featuring a down-home cast of characters that feel more like family than fiction, this story makes for the perfect escape. The sparks fly hot in the romance as the characters deal with some strong issues, yet the end of the journey is more than worth the wait.
As Lucas Allen heads home after a lengthy deployment, the only thing on his mind is getting to meet Natalie Clark, the firecracker he’s been cyber-dating. But when he arrives home to find her on his front porch with a baby in her arms and a coyote shot dead at her feet, at first glance, he thinks she might not be the one for him after all. Of course Natalie isn’t going to let him chase her off because he’s scared of a little thing like a baby. She’s determined to prove the grumpy cowboy wrong just in time for Christmas.
