Scene -- Glacier Ridge Montana Christmas Eve family dinner
at the Malloy Ranch. The entire Malloy family gathered
around the table resplendent with the gourmet feast
prepared by the family cook Yancy. Everyone in attendance
starting from The Great One, Gram Gracie to the assorted
nephews and wives.
Stop right there. Well almost everyone. Colin Malloy was
all set to finally come off the cold range and enjoy this
wondrous dinner with family and if he was being totally
honest -- which of course Colin was -- with the lovely Dr.
Anita Cross the recent newcomer to Glacier Ridge who
definitely caught this long time bachelors eye.
A COWBOYS CHRISTMAS EVE is the third story in the ongoing
almost fable like tale of the Malloy family. R.C. Ryan
decided to handle Colin's story in a delightful novella
that takes place entirely on that one special night of the
The weather outside was frightful -- a little fanciful but
accurate. It was causing all types of problems and so the
end result was that instead of sitting down at the family
feast Colin finds himself back on the road to the clinic
to pick up Dr. Anita. You see a doctor in a small town
where patients become friends and practically family does
not have the luxury of very much free time. Anita and her
uncle had arranged for a doctor to man their clinic so
they could attend the Malloy Christmas Eve dinner but he
never made it before this storm hit.
So Christmas Eve was fated to be at the clinic with Anita
handling various medical emergencies as they popped in and
Colin. Surely not the most romantic setting for two people
who had their eye on each other but in true R. C. Ryan
style it couldn't have worked out better.
What a way to kick start a relationship.
Welcome to Christmas Eve R.C. Ryan style. A COWBOYS
CHRISTMAS EVE novella is a short little tale about good
people doing what comes naturally. A delightful reunion
with some of the wonderful characters of the Malloys of
Montana series. Smiles are guaranteed.
Silent Night, Snowy Night . . .
Colin Malloy enjoys spending Christmas with his family at
the Malloy ranch. But this holiday, what he really wants to
do is to get closer to the alluring Dr. Anita Cross. So when
a blizzard conspires to keep her from joining the Malloy
family's festivities, neither snow, sleet, nor spun-out cars
will prevent Colin from reaching her side.
As the new doctor in town, Anita is wholeheartedly devoted
to her patients. So when a little boy needs her on this
snowy night, she doesn't hesitate to care for him and send
him home in time to spend Christmas with his family. An
evening with a certain sexy cowboy will have to wait-or so
she thinks. When a breathless Colin Malloy shows up at her
clinic, Anita finds her cold, lonely night quickly heating
up. And no crisis or well-meaning relative will stop them
from making this a Christmas to remember . . .
