HITCHED BY CHRISTMAS
As teenagers, Luke Lydell and Claire Buchanan harbored feelings that they never acted on. Growing up on the Lost Springs Ranch for Boys, Luke never felt good enough for the daughter of one of the towns wealthiest ranchers. Now Claires engaged to a son of a neighboring rancher. Her sisters have other plans, though, when they purchase Luke from the bachelor auction so Claire can have a last fling. At first, Claire only wants Luke to help her find her now-missing fianci. But when feelings resurface, it becomes questionable if she will be HITCHED BY CHRISTMAS (3). Talented author Jule McBride has once again created unforgettable characters, but the story is a little weak and jumpy.
