The sudden death of the town marshal leaves Blue River, Texas, without a lawman; and twenty-five-year-old Dara Rose Nolan without a husband. As winter approaches and her meager seamstress income dwindles, she has three options. Yet she won't give up her two young daughters, refuses to join the fallen women of the Bitter Gulch Saloon and can't fathom condemning herself to another loveless marriage. Unfortunately she must decide;soon because there's a new marshal in town, and she's living under his roof. With the heart of a cowboy, Clay McKettrick plans to start a ranch and finally settle down. He isn't interested in uprooting Dara Rose and her children, but he is interested in giving her protection, friendship and passion. And when they say I do to a marriage of convenience, the temporary lawman's Christmas wish is to make Dara Rose his permanent wife.
Bestseller Miller adds a fourth chapter to her McKettricks of Texas saga (Austin) with this heartwarming holiday story set in the early 1900s. Clay McKettrick, the new marshal of Blue River, Tex., is waiting until spring to start building a ranch. In the meantime he'll live at the marshal's house-displacing the previous marshal's family. Clay offers to marry widowed Dara on paper so she and her daughters can stay, and soon their romance blossoms. At times, the characters are a little too good and generous to be true, but fans of romantic Christmas westerns won't mind a bit. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
