New York Times bestselling author Carolyn Brown delivers a sweet cowboy romance with a heart bigger than Texas itself.

This knight in shining armor wears cowboy boots.

Patience was never one of her virtues. After her SUV runs off the road in the middle of a Texas blizzard and her cell stops working, Claire Mason is about to snap. Getting back home to Oklahoma with her four-year-old niece is top priority. And lucky for her, help comes in the form of a true Texas cowboy...

Levi Jackson has always been a sucker for strays. So he can't help getting involved when he comes across Claire and her little niece shivering in the cold. By offering them a place to stay until her car is fixed, he can make sure the two are taken care of - and get to know the sassy Claire better.

What starts as something awkward and temporary starts feeling cozier by the minute. And soon Levi is hoping he can convince Claire she has a permanent place in his heart.

Plus, bonus story "O Little Town of Bramble" by Katie Lane!

All Ethan Miller wants for Christmas is to celebrate in Bramble, Texas, with family and friends. But when his childhood neighbor comes home for the holiday, Ethan realizes that the girl-next-door could be the girl of his dreams. 


Claire Mason is wielding a gun. After being stranded in a blizzard in Texas while with her four-year-old niece, Zaylie, she is already worried about her safety. Her gun really comes in handy, because although they found safety in a cabin, when the door flies open and a huge cowboy dwarfs the doorway, she was never more nervous.

Levi Jackson jumps right in - into the cabin for warmth from the brutal weather, and into the lives of Claire and Zaylie. Levi could never turn a stray away, and in his heart of hearts, that is exactly as he sees them. As it turns out, Claire's car was damaged in the snowstorm. He offers them a place to stay at the ranch where he works.

This is the second story that I have read by Carolyn Brown. I just read Cowboy Bold, the first book in the Longhorn Canyon series, and it was a true delight. I absolutely love her characters, and in this case, I really enjoyed Claire and Levi. Zaylie was a joy as well. Lately I find these young children written into romance to fit in quite well, and the author definitely did a great job with her.

I enjoy reading romances and I always look for the simple formula that is used, and I love it when the conflict and the resolution are practical. I am anxious to read the following books in the series, and they are, Cowboy Bold and Cowboy Brave, which have been released, and Cowboy Rebel and 
Christmas with a Cowboy, which are set for release later this year.

Many thanks to Forever for this ARC to review in exchange for my honest opinion.


New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Carolyn Brown was born in Texas and raised in southern Oklahoma. These days she and her husband make their home in Davis, Oklahoma, a small town of less than three thousand people where everyone knows everyone, knows what they are doing and with whom, and read the weekly newspaper to see who got caught.

A plaque hangs on her office wall that says I know the voices are not real but they have such great ideas. That is her motto and muse as she goes through the days with quirky characters in her head, telling their stories, one by one, and loving her job.

She has been married almost half a century to a retired English teacher that she calls Mr. B and he does not read her books before they are published because she cannot afford a divorce. They have three grown children.—and enough grandchildren to keep them busy and young.

When Carolyn is not writing she likes to sit in the back yard and watch the two tom cats protect the yard from all kinds of wicked varmints like crickets, other cats, spiders and blue jays.
