Lissette Moncrief thought her life couldn't get any worse.
She got married much too young to a cowboy who was more
interested in taking risks and fighting for his country
than being a husband and father, then said husband was
killed three months ago, now she finds out her baby is
going deaf and there is nothing she can do to help him.
Lissette is doing everything she can to try and keep it
together, she has to make her plan to expand her baking
into a successful business so that she can pay her son
Kyle's medical bills, therapy sessions he will need, and
specialized education he will require. She just has to
keep it together a little longer, just a little longer and
all will be okay, right?
Raferty Jones is on a mission, he is going to find his
half-brother Jake's widow and give her the check for Jake's
pension which should have gone to her in the first place.
Raferty knows she has a child and can't understand why
Jake would have made him the beneficiary instead of his
wife and mother to his child. Raferty knows what it is like
trying to care for a family on his own. His mother's
bipolar disorder meant she was either drunk or high most of
his life. It wasn't until recently that they discovered it
was mental illness that made her the way she was, he got
her into rehab and with her medications she is now doing
much better but too late to be much of a mother.
A COWBOY FOR CHRISTMAS brings readers back to Jubilee,
Texas for a holiday story that will grab your heart and
have you weeping alongside Lissette. When Raferty shows up
on Lissette's doorstep the last straw holding her together
breaks. Before her eyes is the brother in law she didn't
know about looking tasty as one of her baked goods while
she might like a bite, anger infuses her that Jake would
have given everything to this stranger. Raferty is
breathless, how is it possible the beautiful woman before
him was the one his brother had abandoned, if she was his
he would never let her go. A COWBOW FOR CHRISTMAS is the
ultimate holiday story; it delivers the perfect mix of
heartbreak with joy. The only problem with this book is
that it is the last in the Jubilee, Texas series, I for one
will miss these characters. On the brighter side author
Lori Wilde delivers us her new Cupid, Texas series in May
Lissette Moncrief has had a tough stretch. Her late
husband left his life insurance to a half-brother sheâ€™s
never heard of. Now her son needs a series of tests that
require plenty of time and money--two things sheâ€™s very
short on. At the end of a very long day, the last thing
she needs is to get into a fender bender with a cowboy. Of
course, that was before she had any idea how quickly that
cowboy could change her life.
Rafferty Jones was blown away by the beauty of the woman
in front of him--even if she had backed into his truck.
She was clearly having a bad day, and all he wanted to do
was take her troubles off her hands. But putting himself
out for others had long gotten him nowhere, and he had a
life to get back to in California...as soon as he returned
the life insurance money heâ€™d had no business receiving.
But when the woman from the parking lot and the woman he
feels he robbed turn out to be one and the same, Rafferty
knows he just might be in Jubilee to stay...and just in
time for the holidays.
