The Rancher's Christmas Baby by Arlene James
The quiet holiday season Dixon Lyons had planned is abruptly derailed when his long-absent mother appears at his doorstep with a baby and stunning beauty Fawn Ambor.

Christmas Eve Cowboy by Lois Richer
Dr. Elizabeth Kendall moved to Snowflake, Montana, wanting nothing more than a fresh start for herself and her daughter, Zoey. But when handsome local rancher Brett Carlisle convinces Elizabeth to lead the kids' Christmas Eve choir, she discovers the idyllic town has a lot more in store for her—and her heart—than she ever imagined.
Two sweet Christmas stories in one, delivering the cheer of Christmas with strong messages of forgiveness and trusting God with the side of romance and family matters.
In The Rancher's Christmas Baby by Arlene James Dixon Lyons struggles with his childhood issues of abandonment. Facing his mother again, after years of separation, he has to look at the past, his childhood, with the eyes of a grown man. Leaning on God's guidance, he seeks for peace for his mind and finds room in his heart for much more than he expected. The adorable romance developing between Dixon and Fawn, the relationship between Dixon and his baby sister, and the Christmas activities bring the lighter side to the poignant story of grace and mercy Dixon and his parents have to experience to be able to move on with their lives.
Christmas Eve Cowboy by Lois Richer is the story of Dr. Elizabeth Kendall and rancher Brett Carlisle who both are starting a new face in their lives. The Christmas spirit is high in Snowflake Montana, and it radiates from each page of the story.
Both Elizabeth and Brett have to learn to trust in God in a new, comprehensive way. Elizabeth was mentally abused and berated by her ex-husband, leaving scars in her mind and soul. She has to find her inner strength again and to realize, she is enough.
Brett put his dreams aside to help his father years ago. Now there is a new chance to seek the fulfillment of those dreams and goals, yet his heart is troubled by his father's health and having to leave Snowflake behind, especially now that Elizabeth and her daughter has begun such a big part of his life, capturing his heart, and making a home there. Can they trust in God's guidance, will they be able to fulfill their dreams and still walk in His plans for their lives? A thought-provoking tale that made an impact, for sure.
Both stories deliver a strong message of faith in the Lord while sharing an abundance of Christmas joy and jubilee, putting the family in the focus and sharing stories of delightful, sweet romance.
