It’s been almost eight years since her parents died leaving her to leave college to take care of her brother. Now he’s fifteen and bordering on alcoholism just like their father and she’s drowning in debt trying to keep a roof over their heads.
Then in walks Gage Cooper. The only man to ever break her heart is back and trying to make amends. Layla desperately wants to send him on his way but doesn’t even have the fight left in her to do that… does she have enough to protect her heart?
What I liked: This is probably my favorite Christmas book so far and definitely my favorite Christmas Christian Fiction. I loved the characters and the plot & writing felt so real I wanted to help! Besides, gotta love those cowboys ;)!
What I didn’t like: Now I have to go buy all of the others in this series!!!

Okay, now to first person because a third person bio sounds like someone else wrote it about me, and is just license to create flowery prose about myself.
I grew up on a farm in the Ozarks. It was long ago and far away, in a land before cable TV, video games and the internet. To pass the time we read books, watched (gasp) network TV that rarely came in clear, and had friends over on weekends to play music on the front porch, or card games in the dining room.
The result of growing up ‘country’ was an active imagination. For fun I wrote stories to entertain myself and I dreamed of being an author. Oh, but first, before writing, I wanted to be a jockey.
Writing won out over being a jockey. In the spring of 2006 I got the call that made those dreams come true: the call that welcomed me into the Steeple Hill family of authors.
The moral of this story, never stop dreaming.
