This heartwarming romantic Christmas story from bestselling author Carolyn Brown shows that even the most unexpected situation can prove to be a true gift.
Snowed in with an attractive stranger? Not what either of them expected for Christmas.
Sage Presley's Western paintings are in big demand. She should be at her gallery's holiday show, but instead she races back to Palo Duro Canyon in a desperate effort to prevent her grandmother from selling her ranch. Even though she doesn't spend much time there these days, Sage can't imagine the rest of her life without those roots, not to mention the feeling of not having a place to come home for Christmas.
Sage arrives at the ranch to find that Grand has gone off to visit her sister and Creed Riley in residence. Creed's a seasoned rancher, and he's ready to take over. The fact that he's so attractive only irritates Sage more. She's devastated, and to make things worse, she's now stuck at the ranch with a blizzard closing in, no electricity, and a stranger taking up space.
Soon Sage finds the house filling up with stray animals fleeing the blizzard, and the handsome stranger turning out to be just the company she needed. It may not be how she pictured, but Christmas at home has never felt so right.
