Headstrong cowgirl Peta Dixon has put her life on hold this Christmas to prove she can run her ranch as well as any man. There isn’t anything she can’t ride, fix, or stare down, and the only things to scare her are long hemlines and sky-high heels.
Self-made rancher Garrett Ross normally doesn't take orders – he gives them. But when asked to step in to act as a temporary foreman on a Montana ranch over the holidays, he can’t refuse.
Yet when Garrett meets the beautiful and stubborn ranch owner, he realizes he’s signed on for a whole lot of trouble. Cynical and jaded, he has no time for feelings. And when Peta meets the man she’s to share her life with until Christmas, she discovers she no longer wants to be the person others expect her to be...
Will the rancher finally listen to his heart and admit he can’t live without a certain straight-talking cowgirl?
Peta Dixon has been that one character I have been wondering about as I have read the series. She is an independent and such a strong woman, it would take a special person to win her heart. And Garrett Ross fits the bill perfectly. Together they have such a chemistry and magic it nearly outshines the Christmas lights.
I loved how the ranch life got a good part in the story, as it is Peta's heart and soul. The cowgirl's life was so well twined into the vine of the tale, into how Peta and Garrett got to know each other, how they learn to see the other as they truly are. And all the better that Hal and Garrett had that connection through their lives, the whole series was all coming together in a beautiful story that captured my heart.
There's the guaranteed Marietta, Montana Christmas traditions, and weddings, and the Grey's making it all feel like arriving home, visiting family and friends.
Yet the developing relationship between Peta and Garrett took the center stage, and it wasn't necessarily an easy to be in the spotlight. They share so much, have so much in common, yet they have lived such a different lives it takes hardship and adjustments to get where they want to be.
His Christmas Cowgirl is an alluring, charming, even dazzling love story that has both elegant high heels and comfortable boots. It is a story where dreams come true even though through some aches and concerns. The story had me longing for Christmas, family, friends, love all around, the lights, the joy, the cheer, and Peta and Garrett made me sigh and smile even had a tear with all the unpredictability of love. What a delightful tale!
