Paige McCall didn’t expect to take in her niece and nephew for holidays, and she sure as hell didn’t expect to let Big Jay—Cold Springs biggest playboy—help her out. But boy does she need the help, and it doesn’t hurt that he’s good looking as hell. Except, she’s been burned one to many times by men, so what she needs is a friend, not to fall in love.
After Big Jay delivers a Christmas tree to Lone Tree Ranch’s newest ranch hand, Paige McCall, he couldn’t help but offer to help. Not only that but it might give him a reason to skip out on dressing up in matching ugly sweaters for his traditional family pictures. The only problem is he’s falling for her, and Paige seems to be the only woman in town immune to his charms.
Through all of the chaos of diaper changes, burnt dinners, and crayon drawings; Paige begins to realize that what she’s missing in life might just be this little accidental family. But when the holiday’s are over, so is this make-believe life. Can she get through the holiday’s without losing her heart to Big Jay and the kids, or does she risk giving up her independence for the children and falling in love with the playboy of Cold Springs?
A country girl born and bred, USA Today Bestselling Author Dawn Luedecke, has spent most of her life surrounded by horses, country folk, and the wild terrain of Nevada, Idaho and Montana. As a child she would spend many afternoons reading books, watching western classics, and Rogers and Hammerstein movies. When she grew up she decided to leave the quiet country life for a chance to find adventure by serving a successful tour in the United States Coast Guard. During that time she found her soul mate (and alpha male) and started a family and writing career. She enjoys writing historical and paranormal romance and spends as much time as she can working on her current manuscript.
Once Upon A Time..
...there were two romance authors who wanted to find a way to connect voracious romance readers with the authors who love them. After several conversations (and countless glasses of wine) an idea began to take shape. What if they could create a place where readers could listen to their favorite authors read from their books? But wait, there’s more... What if they could have the chance to chat with them over a cocktail or two? But wait, there’s even more... What if they could make all of this happen from the comfort of their own homes so they wouldn’t even have to put clothes on?
We call that a win - win - win!
As fans of both the romance genre and a well-stocked bar, Dawn Luedecke and Dylann Crush made their vision a reality when they launched Romance Happy Hour in 2018. We hope you’ll join us twice a month for our version of a girls’ night in... beverages and bras are optional, romance novels are required.
