An Outlaw's Christmas

amazon barnes & noble Goodreads
On his way into town Sawyer McKettrick, the incoming interim sheriff is shot and winds up right on the doorstep of the local schoolteacher, Piper St. James.

The poor girl.

She sees nothing to it but to help him inside and mend him – knowing full well that by doing so she’ll lose her teaching position but that by not doing so he’ll end up frozen in the snow.

Now, to try and keep this a secret…

Hott Review

What I liked: So much fun! Not much for the Spirit of Christmas but a wonderful Christmassy tale none-the-less. I devoured this and enjoyed every second!

What I didn’t like: The steam felt a bit forced into the story. It was all at the end as a culmination of the tale but it felt like it was an afterthought.

Learn More About Author Linda Lael Miller:

Linda Lael MillerAs the daughter of a town marshal, Linda has come home to the western lifestyle that gave birth to one of today’s most successful authors. She left Washington years ago and pursued her wanderlust, living in Arizona and London and traveling the world. Now the author of more than 100 novels, the “First Lady of the West” is glad to be back home, writing contemporary and historical stories that have earned her awards and placements on all the national bestsellers lists.

Linda traces the birth of her writing career to the day when a Northport teacher told her that the stories she was writing were good, that she just might have a future in writing. Later, when she decided to write novels, she endured her share of rejection before she sold FLETCHER’S WOMAN in 1983 to Pocket Books. Since then, Linda has successfully published historicals, contemporaries, paranormals, and thrillers before coming home, in a literal sense, and concentrating on novels with a Western flavor. For her devotion to her craft, the Romance Writers of America awarded her their prestigious Nora Roberts Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007.
