Rocky Mountain Cowboy Christmas by Sara Richardson

When bullfighter Tucker McGrath’s mom suffers a minor heart attack just before Christmas, he decides it’s time to redeem himself from the Ghost of Christmas Failures Past. Knowing how much his mom loves the town’s annual Christmas pageant, he agrees to take her place as director even though he has zero experience wrangling kids. That’s not the only complication with taking on the pageant, either. There’s also the tempting but off limits local music teacher Kenna Hart.
.
A year after her husband’s scandalous betrayal and their divorce, Kenna is doing her best to move forward and give her two boys a magical Christmas. When she volunteers to help with the pageant, she doesn’t expect to reconnect with her old high school heartthrob. Tucker McGrath has always been Mr. No-Strings-Attached, so he’s definitely not one to fall for…or is he? The more time she spends with him, the more Kenna realizes Tucker has changed. And now he might just be the cowboy who can make all of her Christmas wishes come true.

We are taken back to the world of the Rocky Mountain Riders series with a quick, delightful Christmas novella for a returning son and a heart weary divorced mom.

Tucker has always managed to avoid returning home for Christmas, even though it breaks his mom’s heart a little more each year.  He has his reasons – are they good ones?  Only Tucker can answer that and this Christmas he’s going to have to come up with something because the Ghost of Christmas Past is right at his doorstep.  After his mother had a minor heart attack right before Christmas Tucker came home to watch over her and to fulfill the promise to take over her spot on the annual Christmas pageant.  Even if he had no clue whatsoever as to what he was doing.

The last person Kenna expected to run into while volunteering for the annual Christmas pageant was her old high school crush, Tucker.  It’s been a rough year for Kenna yet she’s determined to give her kids the best Christmas experience possible.  And if that means dealing with Tucker then so be it.  Kenna never thought that Tucker could be the answer to not only her happiness but her boys as well.

One tough cowboy is about to get his heart handed to him wrapped up in the sweet present of Kenna and her sons.  Now he just has to figure out how to not mess this up for them.

Both Tucker and Kenna have to let go of the past, and the actions of others in that past in order to move on… together.  Rocky Mountain Cowboy Christmas gives us a fun, touching and emotional Christmas novella all about loving who we are now, and letting the past go to make room for the future.  I enjoyed myself very much, loved being back in this world once again.  And would not hesitate to recommend this novella to any reader of Modern Western Romance, Christmas Romance or who has followed the Rocky Mountain Riders series.  You’ll enjoy yourself this Christmas.
