Love Inspired Editors Share Which Holiday Titles They Are Excited About!
Set in Colorado in the 1880s, Cowgirl under the Mistletoe by Louise M. Gouge is a romance between the town pastor and the female deputy. Being taller than most men and able to outride and outshoot most of them, as well, Grace Eberly has long been taunted or avoided by the boys she grew up with, so she’s developed a thick skin. Still, she enjoys Micah Thomas’s friendship…until she realizes to her dismay that she’s growing a bit too fond of him. The only solution is to find him a wife, someone more ladylike than she and therefore more suited to being a pastor’s helpmeet…even if it means breaking off their special friendship. Readers will love this strong heroine who discovers her softer side while falling in love with the pastor—and still catching a band of escaped outlaws—just in time for Christmas.

Who can resist a Christmas baby? Certainly not me, especially when it comes with a tall, dark and handsome cowboy, a down-home Texas setting and a sweet, absolutely charming romance. Deb Kastner packs all that into her delightful story Mistletoe Daddy.

Love may not be what either of them were seeking, but the best Christmas gifts are always the unexpected ones, right? I hope you love this story as much as I do!

So why do none of the elegant young women of his acquaintance stir his heart like the feisty tomboy deputy? As they work to bring peace to the community, will Grace and Micah finally see that they make the perfect team?
