The Cowboy's Christmas Baby!
Christmas might really be two months away but think cold snow, the smell of sugar cookies baking in the oven, warm sweaters, crackling fireplaces, shiny ornaments on the tree, Christmas songs on the radio and holiday specials on television. Think Christmas parties and a big spread of all your favorite holiday foods...pecan tarts, that special punch with just a little bit of kick, pumpkin dip and southwest pinwheels.
Natalie and Lucas welcome all y’all to Cedar Hill Ranch in Savoy, Texas. Population less than a thousand with friendly folks, ranches, sexy cowboys, sassy ladies, and a snowstorm promising the first white Christmas in nearly twenty years.
Christmas is that time when love is in the air, as much or maybe even more than Valentine’s Day. It’s hustling about, cooking, and keeping secrets so that there can be surprises on Christmas day. It was the perfect time for Lucas to meet Natalie in person, the woman that he’d been visiting with via the Internet for almost a year.
He thought he’d surprise everyone when he arrived home two days early, but it was Lucas who gotthe surprise. Natalie had already arrived so that she and Hazel, Lucas’s elderly housekeeper, could
surprise him when he came home. Imagine how he felt when he rounded the back of the house and there she stood, with a dead coyote at the toes of her boots, three hound puppies at her heels, a pink pistol in one hand, and a baby cradled in her other arm.
And poor old Lucas didn’t know a thing about a baby!
And so begins a rocky relationship that began as an
and Lucas in internet relationship with Natalie in Silverton, Texas . He didn't have a problem with the pistol, the pups or the dead coyote but the baby...now that was a whole different story altogether. But Natalie wasn't ready to concede the war to Lucas...not without a fight. Kuwait
