Sweet Cowboy Christmas and The 12 Days of Sweet Blog Tour & Giveaway


 Sweet Cowboy Christmas 
Sweet, Texas # 3.5

Mistletoe, holly, and cowboys, oh my! Christmas in Texas has never been sweeter.

Years ago, Chase Morgan traded in his dusty cowboy boots for the shimmering lights of New York City and a fast track up the corporate ladder. But when his shiny life is turned on end just in time for Christmas, Chase knows he needs to reevaluate even if that means going home to Texas to endure his least favorite holiday.

When Mr. Tall, Dark, and Smoking Hot walks through her door at the Magic Box Guest Ranch, Faith Walker sees just another handsome, rich exec looking to play cowboy for a week-at her expense. She’s sure the grumpy, but sexy as hell Scrooge will put a crimp in her holly jolly plans. Until a sizzling kiss has her seeing him in a new light.

Chase is haunted by secrets, and even though it goes entirely against her “hands off the guests” rule Faith is tempted to help him leave the past behind. As the magic of the season swirls around them, she is determined to succeed because now she is certain one sweet, cowboy Christmas will never be enough.

12 DAYS OF SWEET BLOG TOUR—Candis Terry

DAY 3:
Abby Morgan Wilder (from Sweetest Mistake)

Firemen are undoubtedly hot. Jackson Wilder might lead the troops in the hot and sexy department. But that doesn’t mean he isn’t a whole handful of trouble. Doesn’t mean he isn’t worth it either. While he does love his sweets, he’s more of a cake and pie kind of guy than a chocolate fanatic. I discovered this recipe and he really seems to like it. Or maybe he just likes the whipped cream that he always seems to find to use another way. I’ll let you use your imagination.

  6. Sweet potatoes with marshmallows. I have never been able to understand how anyone can eat them. (Although I have become a fan of sweet potatoes in other ways, especially fries or fried with tempura batter.)
