Two Stories wrapped in one volume

First story: Snowbound Cowboy - Rating: 5 Stars


What a heartwarming story, it captured me right away and I couldn't put the book down. Such a sweet romance story and a happy Christmas for everyone in the end. I even cried in the end because of the happy ending.   The author gives a couple of recipes in the book - here is one of the favorites:


A regular box of brownie mix

HERSHEY'S KISSES or Chocolate drops

Crushed peppermint candy canes

"I use heart-shaped muffin tins, but you can use an 8 X 11 pan.  Once they're filled, I push one HERSHEY'S KISS into each of the centers, or squares, then bake as directed.  After they come out of the oven, sprinkle the crushed peppermint on top.  Enjoy, Patricia Thayer"

Second Story - A Bride for Rocking H Ranch - Rating: 4 Stars

Another beautiful story for the Christmas season with lots of cold snowy blizzards and sweet loving romance. This story followed along with the first story only from the oldest sisters perspective and the events that happened during her absence from the ranch. The ending was great with both sister's getting their HEA but the first story was more touching/emotional with the young 5 year old boy involved.

I will say this though, this is definitely a book to read in the winter - the writing style made me feel as though I was right there experiencing everything. The description of the snow blizzard, the freezing tempatures and the electricity going out leaving the characters to survive for warmth by the nice fire place and body heat made me want to curl up on the couch with a nice blanket to stay warm myself.
