Sheriff Reagan’s Christmas Boots
Charlotte Callahan doesn’t know what to get her husband for Christmas! And then she stumbles over his shoddy boots in the half-light of morning. New boots would be the perfect gift! But she doesn’t have enough money. Nor does she know the right size.
Undaunted, she takes Kin Davis’s advice and decides to use her cache of apples to make pies to sell in Dixie’s Boardinghouse. Reagan is so busy tracking down the town’s latest petty thief that he likely won’t notice. But unbeknownst to her, Reagan has Christmas plans of his own for those apples.
When Kin Davis realizes what’s about to happen, will he be able to change the sheriff’s plans without ruining Christmas for both parties?
Doc Griffin’s Christmas Sleigh
Dixie Griffin had the perfect plan for Flynn’s Christmas present—a sleigh to speed up his medical trips to the logging camps and allow him to carry more supplies. She’d even already ordered it from the Seattle sleigh maker, and scheduled the trip to pick it up.
But then the early arrival of her infant daughter prevents her from being able to make the journey, and the sleigh maker has buyers waiting. What’s worse, all her trips to the post office, have set Wyldhaven tongues wagging in suspicion over her relationship with the postmaster, and Flynn has overheard the gossip!
Kin Davis thinks he has an idea that might save her Christmas present, but now Dixie is more concerned with saving her marriage.
Deputy Joe’s Christmas Saddle
Liora Rodante has Christmas perfectly planned. She’s already bought Joe an intricately embossed saddle to replace his worn out one. It cost her a year’s worth of saved egg and cream money, but she knows Joe will appreciate the comfortable ride during his long hours on the job.
Then Ruby, a former prostitute Liora has been ministering to, runs away, taking the saddle with her. Liora is devastated, but she wants to keep the law out of it so Joe won’t learn about his present. However, when tragedy strikes and Wyldhaven newcomer, Kane Carver, is the prime suspect, there’s nothing for it but to send for the law.
Will Christmas be ruined? And who are the two men Kin Davis has a gun-fight with in the forest?
Marshal Zane’s Christmas Horse
Jacinda Holloway is so excited to get to the train station to take delivery of the Appaloosa colt that she’s purchased for Zane’s Christmas present. He admired the dam and sire while they were on their wedding tour, and she knows he’s going to be thrilled.
But when she arrives at the station, she’s horrified to learn there has been an avalanche! The train can’t get through.
Kin Davis encourages her not to give up. But Jacinda fears that all her plans may be buried under a mountain of snow!
Washington Nolan’s Christmas Watch
Zoe Kastain wakes on the morning she’s to leave to take her teaching exam, with one goal in mind—arrive early for every step of the journey! Thankfully a glance at the clock shows that Washington Nolan should arrive in just a few minutes to escort her and Ma to the station, and they are right on time—half an hour early just like she planned.
However, when her little brother, Aidan, insists he can’t be parted from Ma and must accompany them, things take a turn for the worse. Much worse! And now Wash’s pocket watch, handed down from his great-grandfather, has been ruined, they are still more than a mile from the station, and the train waits for no one!
Wash puts a clamp on his frustration. It’s a good thing he likes Aidan’s sister so much, or he might be tempted to take the boy in hand and give him a few well-deserved consequences.
Zoe feels terrible about Wash’s watch and vows to find someone to fix it as a Christmas surprise—even if that means she has to tread the streets of Seattle alone in the dark. The watchmaker’s shop is only two blocks from their boardinghouse. What could go wrong?
Parson Clay’s Christmas Pup
Aurora McClure tamps down her excitement as she hurries to the church to meet Parson Clay for their weekly service planning. She really oughtn’t be so thrilled, but it’s a whole blissful hour with him! However, when she arrives, he’s not there. And no smoke is coming from the parsonage chimney! On a cold day like today, there certainly should be a fire warming the place.
At the parsonage, she finds him burning with fever. When Doc arrives, he says she must stay there under quarantine! Though concerned over what the town gossips might say about such an impropriety, she’s thankful to care for him—especially when he deliriously mumbles about not getting a puppy for Christmas as a boy. That will be just the thing to cheer him up—despite Kin Davis telling her it’s a bad idea.
Finally on the mend and starting to feel like himself, Preston Clay couldn’t be more baffled when Aurora McClure brings him a puppy. He opens his mouth to tell her to march it right back to wherever she got it, but one look into those captivating green eyes of hers, and he finds himself offering his thanks instead. He really ought to get a grip on himself. A parson shouldn’t be feeling such things for one of his parishioners!
Kin Davis’s Christmas Send-Off
Kin Davis itches to leave Wyldhaven and experience life in the big city of Seattle. He only has one concern. Without Parson Clay’s taming influence, will he degenerate into an abusive drunk like his pa was? The question haunts him.
But there’s no escaping his departure. Word has gone out and his tickets are purchased. He only has to make it through the shindig Zoe organized for the townsfolk to offer their farewells. If anybody else was putting it on, he might skip town early, but he wouldn’t hurt Zoe for all the world. His escape would come soon enough.
Yet, as he goes throughout the day, the kindness of each Wyldhaven family touches him deeply. These are good people. Too bad there isn’t a woman in town who holds his interest.
Then a chance encounter with the pretty niece of Wyldhaven’s new bankers, rocks him to his core. And suddenly his trip to Seattle has lost most of its shine.
Step into the heart of the Old West and journey to Wyldhaven in these Christian Christmas romance novellas that are just the right length for the busy holiday season!
