There’s nothing like a firefighting cowboy to keep you toasty warm this Christmas…

Christmas is coming up, and single mom Sydney Steele is determined to make this a holiday to remember for Wildcat Bluff County. She still has to get those pesky, reluctant―and deliciously attractive―firefighting cowboys to pose for her charity calendar. They claim they’re too busy pursuing an unknown arsonist to take a break.

Dune Barrett has been flirting with Sydney for months, so he jumps at the chance to give her a hand. And when he agrees to pose as Mr. December, she couldn’t be happier. But to really win her over, Dune will have to convince eleven other guys from his crew to exploit their good looks for charity…a task much easier said than done.

I had fun with A Very Cowboy Christmas.  Dune and Sydney make an entertaining couple, each has issues, each has reason to be a bit hesitant to start something between them… but the attraction is simply too strong to ignore for much longer.  As a volunteer firefighter, Sydney knows her way around some very hot men.  Now, corralling them into a photo shoot for a calendar that would provide some much needed financial rewards for the town is a far different thing.  But she’s not giving up and just maybe Dune can help her convince them.  This Christmas is one that Sydney intends to let go of the painful past and focus on her daughter’s enjoyment… and perhaps a romance for Mom as well.  Anything is possible at Christmastime.

I did a lot of smiling with this story, sure there are a few sad moments, that will always be a part of life when you’ve lost a loved one to death… yet life  moves on eventually.  And that is clearly shown here.  Dune feels like Sydney and her daughter are home, are the family he wants… now he simply has to convince them that this is the greatest Christmas idea ever.  I loved the retro themed Drive-In, that brought some definite chuckles.  There’s still an arsonist afoot and keeping him from destroying the newest addition to town will be a challenge.  One that everyone is involved in.  A touch of danger, A bit of nostalgia, L big heaping of Christmas love all combines into an enjoyable story that I’d recommend for any Romance reader who loves that special magic of the holidays.
