Hello to everyone at Fresh Fiction today! I’m so glad to be here for a visit with all y’all today. It was absolutely wonderful to see you guys in California at the RWA Conference this past summer. At that time the release of A COWBOY CHRISTMAS MIRACLE seemed so far away but it’s on the shelves now. With each book in this series, it became more and more difficult to create something the readers liked as well as the previous book. As the books found their way to the shelves, I kept wondering how on earth I’d end a feud that had been going on for a hundred years between the Brennans and the Gallaghers. Then in ONE TEXAS COWBOY TOO MANY someone wondered aloud what would happen if a Gallagher fell in love with a Brennan. I’d never written a Romeo and Juliet story but as Declan and Betsy talked to me (yes, I hear voices and they tell me the most wonderful stories) it all started to come together. Betsy wanted to make her cousin happy with a Christmas play at the church. Declan needed to win a bet he made with Betsy’s cousin. My eyes misted when I finished writing A COWBOY CHRISTMAS MIRACLE. Betsy had a soft side and Declan wasn’t nearly the tough guy he’d been in the previous books. I’d come to love these characters with their feuding and their passion so much that it was hard to end the series. But like one of my readers reminded me recently, the stories never really end because they can be reread over and over again. To all my amazing, wonderful readers—keep your boots on. There’s more cowboys on the way and a Luckadeau and an O’Donnell are about to vie for a particular ranch down in north central Texas next March in TALK COWBOY TO ME. And September is triple dippin’ month for my stories. About the time you finish A COWBOY CHRISTMAS MIRACLE, THE LULLABY SKY, a romantic women’s fiction will be on the shelves (Sept. 13). Then on September 27, MERRY COWBOY CHRISTMAS, the third book in the Lucky Penny Ranch series, hits the market. Two Christmas books in one month, makes me think of Christmas Carols…so get out the holiday CD’s even if it’s still three and a half months to the actual Ho-Ho-Ho day and think snow, hot chocolate, sugar cookies and snuggling up with sexy cowboys! Do you read holiday books all year or just during the months that they are published? What’s the one that you read over and over again every year?

Burnt Boot, Texas #4

A Cowboy
Christmas Miracle

Fourth in bestseller Carolyn Brown's hot series: When these two feuding families come together, all bets are off!


When tempers flare during a poker match, Declan Brennan bets Tanner Gallagher that he can sweep the next woman to walk in the bar off her feet. All heads turn when Tanner's fiery and stubborn cousin Betsy bursts in. Declan isn't one to shy away from a challenge, but wooing a Gallagher? He certainly has his work cut out for him.

It only gets worse when Declan falls head over heels in love with her, and Betsy finds out about the bet. Now it'll take a Christmas miracle to put them together and end the hundred-year-old feud between their families...

I prefer to read them mid fall thru Christmas. To me Christmas
is a special time & if it is always there, then it isn't as
special. You can still talk about those special moments, but
that isn't the same as getting into the holiday spirit.
