‘Tis the season for hunky cowboys and Brown has delivered one right to us! Creed Riley is as handsome as he is hardworking, and he certainly knows how to haul hay. The vivid canyon descriptions work in perfect harmony with the snowy Christmas setting, painting an idyllic portrayal of life on a ranch. While Creed is an old-school cowboy through and through, Sage certainly knows how to shake things up with her smart mouth and take-no-prisoners attitude. With its authentic Texan characters and winter backdrop, Mistletoe Cowboy is a holiday treat to be savored.

After Creed Riley buys a ranch from a sweet old lady, he plans to familiarize himself with the place while enjoying some peace and quiet. Instead, what he gets is the old woman’s granddaughter, Sage Presley, a spitfire who’s none too pleased about the recent change of ownership. When the two get stuck in a snowstorm for two weeks, sparks and insults fly as they catch a case of serious cabin fever. However, when combined with a stray cat and dog and a few sprigs of mistletoe, Creed and Sage soon have the makings of their own Christmas miracle. (SOURCEBOOKS, Oct., 352 pp., $7.99)
