An Outlaw's Christmas
Linda Lael Miller
Genre: Christmas Romance
Summary (from Goodreads): With his wild heart, Sawyer McKettrick isn't ready to settle down on the Triple M family ranch in Arizona. So he heads to Blue River, Texas, to seek a job as marshal. But in a blinding snowstorm he's injured—and collapses into the arms of a prim and proper lady in calico.The shirtless, bandaged stranger recuperating in teacher Piper St. James's room behind the schoolhouse says he's a McKettrick, but he looks like an outlaw. As they wait out the storm, the handsome loner has Piper remembering long-ago dreams of marriage and motherhood. But for how long is Sawyer willing to call Blue River home?
As the gray skies clear, Piper's one holiday wish just might bring two lonely hearts together forever.
Review: Years ago I read several of Miller's books about the McKettrick family, so it was fun to revisit them in this cute little Christmas romance. I always enjoy Miller's writing style, and the story was engaging and zippy. The heroine, Piper, is a likeable headstrong woman, who has met her match in handsome cowboy Sawyer. A sweet and heartwarming story full of Christmas cheer.
Rating: 4 stars (for a romance)
