Will the magic of the season bring love to a jaded lawman and cautious woman who doesn’t believe in second chances?
Hawkins DeBell has been through hell, and lived to start a new life. Leaving his bounty hunting days behind to become a deputy in Splendor, he allowed time to heal from the pain of his past. With no plans to remarry, Hawke enjoys a quiet life, the comradery with fellow deputies, and occasional excitement from his work. Until the day a stunning blonde catches his attention.
Nellie “Beauty” Crawford has survived more than one attempt on her life. With money in the bank, a job, and house near her best friend, Francesca, she wants for nothing. Except perhaps the company of a surly lawman with a painful past.
Christmas is always a joyous time in the frontier town. Families make the long ride from their ranches and farms. Laden with food, those attending Christmas Eve service also look forward to the marriage of Zeke Boudreaux and Frannie O’Reilly. And Hawke looks forward to spending as much time as possible with Beauty.
What they’re not expecting is the biggest blizzard to pass through Splendor in years.
A Very Splendor Christmas, book seventeen in the Redemption Mountain historical western romance series, is a novella with an HEA and no cliffhanger.
