HER CHRISTMAS WISH
The last thing rodeo cowboy Daniel Baron needs is a commitment. After a lifetime of feeling like an outsider among his larger-than-life step family at Roughneck Ranch, Daniel is ready to leave the ring—and Texas—behind forever. Except he can't stop thinking about the woman he just met—beautiful, bighearted…and pregnant.
Of course Nicole Bennett is attracted to strong, sweet Daniel—he's pretty much perfect. But he made it clear that he doesn't want a family, the one thing Nicole's dreamed of her whole life. Now, just as that dream is coming true, Nicole could lose the only man she wants to share it with…unless Daniel can find the courage to open his heart.
This is the last book in the Baron family series. Each one of the books was written by a different author. Something that I found fascinating was that this a very blended family. Not all of the babies belong to a Baron (at least not to begin with) and not all of the blended families have blood ties. It was quite lovely because blood isn't the most important thing...love is.
There are some truly epic KISSES in this book. Daniel can kiss, wowza. Nicole appreciates his skill, and I really enjoyed reading them!
Daniel has seen the rest of his blended family find happiness. The family farm is saturated in it. But he has other plans. He will not be sucked into happiness, no he won't. But, as this is a Harlequin, we know that his plans are about to be derailed, big time.
Nicole has wanted a loving family for her entire life. With no man on the horizon, she goes to a clinic and finds the right donor...and now she's pregnant. She's busy with her boss, who is being reunited with the family she was forced to leave. This is the same family that Daniel belongs to. Lots of characters in this one, characters who had their own books in this series. But you don't need to have read those to be caught up here.
I thoroughly enjoyed these characters. I liked how they worked things through...and the Christmas theme was lovely to read. Yes, I'd like to read more from this author.
*Thank you, NetGalley and Harlequin, for the opportunity to read this book.
