It's Christmastime in Jubilee, Texas, but Lissette Moncrief is having a hard time celebrating . . .

Especially after she accidentally smashes her car into Rafferty Jones's pick-up truck. Yes, he's a whole lot of handsome—from the tips of his boots to the top of his Stetson. But he's no Christmas present. Lissy's not about to let herself get whisked away by his charming ways and words . . . only to watch him drive away in the end.

But what Lissy doesn't know is Rafferty's in town just to meet her—and to give her a share in a windfall that doesn't rightly belong to him. At first, he just wants to do his good deed and get out. But one look at this green-eyed beauty has him deciding to turn this into a Christmas to remember . . . making promises he's determined to keep—whether she believes in them or not.

My Review:

I don't think that Lori Wilde has ever let me down. All of her books that I have picked up have been an utter joy to read. This one is no different even though my tolerance of Christmas themed anything is extremely low all year round.

I loved Lissy from the moment we met her while she was in the supermarket having a minor meltdown in the baking aisle--I've been there. She was strong and smart although she did have a tendency towards being a pushover. But as the book went on, she got stronger and grew a backbone. I really liked her development in that respect. I absolutely adored Rafferty as well. He is one of the best cowboy heroes I have come across in a good long while. He was just a good guy and he may have landed himself a spot on my favorite heroes list. 

I loved this book. I really did. Lissy and Rafferty were perfect together and had such a sweet chemistry. I also loved Kyle and I am not even close to being a "kid" person at all. The presence of the obligatory "adorable child" has the tendency to turn me off to a book but I really enjoyed Kyle's presence and the sweet connection that formed between him and Rafferty. And I really appreciate that there was no "exhibit the child" type of showboating. He was important to the storyline and that's probably why I liked him so much. I really enjoyed this book. It was sweet and full of small town charm and just about everything that I like.
