Finding true love is the ultimate gift.


Christmas is coming, and Anna Beth is looking forward to a tropical vacation with her friends—anything to help her forget about Corbett. Their relationship had been racing in the right direction...until it went completely off the tracks. All evidence points to the fact that the hunky Corbett is still hung up on his ex. But when she accidently shreds her passport the night before her trip, it suddenly looks as though she'll be staying put. Now it would take a holiday miracle get her in a good mood again. Too bad she misses Corbett something terrible...


For Corbett, the holidays this year are anything but happy. His family will all be away, forgoing family tradition. Even worse, the beautiful, vivacious Anna Beth tells him she doesn't want to see him anymore. All thanks to an unfortunate mix-up with his ex-fiancée. Corbett is all out of holiday spirit. But he's hopeful that if he can just get Anna Beth to talk to him, he might just change his mind about the holiday tidings.

Can the right woman tame this cowboy's restless heart?


When a fire erupts at a local restaurant, Austin Holbrook rushes into the burning building to save the life of a woman trapped inside. Afterward, the low-key cowboy tries to avoid the fuss and attention of being labeled a hero. He doesn't want to talk to the press, but he isn't prepared for the heat between him and Savannah Brewster, the reporter pursuing the story for the local paper. Savannah is smart, determined, and beautiful. And she refuses to leave without her story. As his attraction to Savannah grows, he must decide whether it's time to reconsider his aversion to long-term relationships. After watching his parents' marriage go down in flames, he has turned his back on the possibility of finding lasting love. So why is his heart telling him Savannah just might be the one?


After moving to the sleepy town of Harper's Grove, reporter Savannah Brewster's first story is covering a fire and a dramatic rescue by a local rancher. At first she isn't happy about doing a puff piece about a small-town heartthrob, but at least the story will take her mind off her recent breakup with her boyfriend. She isn't prepared for her instant reaction to Austin, the hunky, hot commodity who's just as handsome and mysterious as his reputation suggests. Too bad he's a closed book and not exactly known for serious relationships. She's determined to get the scoop no matter how much he wants to dodge the spotlight. There are moments when he's open with her, and the sparks fly as she sees a different side to the man. But as things heat up, she finds out she has a rival for Austin's affections who just might end her career for good...
