A BABY IN THE BUNKHOUSE
Christmas is a time of great emotion—and if you are very lucky—great joy. But what happens when all the happiness has been sapped from your life and you can no longer experience the bliss you once felt during the yuletide season?
This is the dilemma facing rancher Rafferty Evans. As a child, he loved everything about the holidays. That’s no longer the case. Thanksgiving and Christmas serve only to remind him of a tragic loss. His plan to survive the season? Work doubly hard, and avoid all holiday celebrations—even if it means being dubbed a modern day Ebenezer Scrooge.
At least that’s his plan until one dark and stormy November night, when Jacey Lambert finds herself stranded on Lost Mountain Ranch.
Despite an unexpected turn of events that has left her without a job or a place to call home, Jacey loves life. She loves the holidays. And most of all, she loves the child she is carrying inside her. Jacey knows there is always something to celebrate. And soon, she decides, with her help, Rafferty Evans will recapture his Christmas spirit and realize that, too…
This story, dear readers, is my gift to you. I hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
