TEXAS CHRISTMAS (4) by Nancy Robards Thompson: Pepper Merriweather’s family’s fall from grace right before the holidays means she needs a job, pronto. Rob Macintyre may be a billionaire, but he’s never forgotten his simple roots. Past hurts and a disabled son make him mistrustful — until his new employee, a certain fallen society princess, breaks through his barriers. Featuring both new and familiar characters from past tales, Thompson’s holiday romance will stay with readers long after the end. Her protagonists are clearly meant for each other from page one, and you’ll love how she brings them together.
