When Cooper Mason left Gold Valley, Oregon behind him eight years ago, he told himself he wouldn’t be back. But when a Christmas promise sends him home to face his demons, he’ll find that not everything is as he remembers—especially family friend Annabelle Preston, who’s somehow morphed from childhood pest to full-grown, hot-blooded and oh-so-tempting woman.
Growing up, Annabelle had built a lot of dreams around the ruggedly gorgeous Cooper—dreams she’s long ago learned to put behind her. Until a chance encounter with Cooper leads to a night neither can forget, and all the old feelings come blazing back to life. Now, Annabelle has a week to prove there’s more between them than a no-strings holiday fling…and with a little Christmas luck, she just might convince Gold Valley’s favorite cowboy to come home for good.
We all know that I super biased towards author, Maisey Yates. Her Copper Ridge series is fantastic so you know when I found out she’d discovered more hot cowboys in Gold Valley, I was all over that. And she starts with a really good one!
This introductory novella was the perfect Christmas bite!
Annabelle has always had it bad for Cooper Mason. She followed him around as a kid because he was her hero. Her one true love. But Mason left Gold Valley and has hardly come back or looked back in years. Of course, he has his reasons—pretty damn good reasons—but this year he’s back to spend time with his family. And the town who won’t let his family forget their biggest tragedy.
One night at the only watering hole in town he spots her. A sexy little number he could lose himself in for the night…only after a super hot orgasm does he realize who she is.
So that’s Cowboy Christmas Blues in a nutshell but that’s just what happens. This story is fun and a little bit sad, and filled with holiday hope. Annabelle is all grown up and she wants Cooper for herself. Or just while he’s in town. The point is she wants him and watching her try to navigate new feelings mixed with the old hero worship and his own warnings against developing feelings for him, was exciting. A casual, hot affair is just what she thinks she wants or needs, but come on, who can keep it casual when your childhood crush is tall, dark, handsome and just a little bit broken?
Certainly not me, and definitely not Annabelle either!
There were some great secondary characters that I look forward to getting to know better, but if the rest of the stories are anything like Cowboy Christmas Blues, then there are many more cowboys in my future!
What a great day! Writing a novel is always a process and sometimes that process goes so smoothly you’re sure that you must have missed something, left out a key story element or accidentally deleted a chapter.
Then there’s how 2017 has been for me. Busy. Insane. Filled with surprises, both good and bad. Even though I have spent the past few months freaking out that the world of romance readers might forget me if I didn’t get Best Of My Love completed and out into the ether. But I also allowed myself to take my time and make it as good as it can be without those pesky errors that make reading difficult.
The story of Dre and Erick came to me a while ago, while I was writing Feels Like Love but it was kind of emotional so it took me some time to really dig in and get these characters right. Especially Dre who is, acerbic and sarcastic. She has a sharp tongue and she’d not afraid to use it when necessary. But she’s also pretty damn scarred and terrified to trust in love again.
