He left to save his family…

Now he’s back!

Nicholas of Mei Solis swore to do anything to protect his home—even going away to fight for it. This meant leaving beautiful Matilda, too. Now Nicholas has returned briefly to lay to rest the ghosts of his past. But one look at Matilda, now widowed and with child, changes everything. Suddenly Nicholas is compelled to stay…and to take back the future they both thought they’d lost…


A historical rendition of lost love reconnecting! With an in depth depiction of several characters who were the best of friends once upon a time, but who now have feelings of betrayal floating around them. Nicholas and Matilda are both quick to grab our attention, and as they begin the slow process of reconnecting and forgiving each other, we get a glimpse of what the future could hold for them. Danger is swirling, but true love is once again beaming a powerful force. Really good read!

Nicholas sacrificed himself and many years of his life in order to raise the money needed to keep his family homestead running and receiving the upgrading that it needed. Now he has arrived home, to confront his past and the ones he thinks have done him wrong.

Matilda was betrothed to Nicholas all those years ago when he left, but when he stopped writing or responding and never returned home, she went on to marry another. Now widowed and pregnant, she’s not sure how to react when Nicholas returns. She’s still angry, yet seeing him brings back those same old feelings.

In the heart of the Rockies
One white Christmas can change everything.

When firefighter and single dad Steve Springfield moved his four kids to a Colorado Christmas tree ranch, he intended for it to be a safe haven. But he never expected danger to follow them to his childhood home...

Or that he would come face-to-face with the one girl he could never forget.

Folk artist Camille Brandt lives a quiet life. As the town's resident eccentric, she's used to being lonely—until Steve freaking Springfield changes everything. Brave and kind, he's always had a piece of her heart, and it doesn't take long before she's in danger of falling for him again. But as mysterious fires break out across the sleepy Colorado town, Steve and Camille will have to fight if they want their happy family to survive until Christmas...


Explosive chemistry, family camaraderie and a surprise twist you won’t expect! With the kick off of a new Rocky Mountain Cowboys series, Katie Ruggle introduces us to the Springfield family and the Colorado town where they reside. The characters are well developed, and the plot has an air of excitement to it as we follow along with the couple as they start a relationship with each other. The surprise twist sort of takes you aback, and the ending and culmination of it all is rather quick and unexpected. Overall, a solid read!

When firefighter and single dad moved his four kids back home to his family Christmas tree ranch in Colorado, he was expecting a low key lifestyle. Instead, he’s getting a sudden life filled with chaos! Kids going this way and that, brothers pestering him, mysterious fires popping up, and low and behold the one girl from his youth that he could never forget!

Artist Camille Brandt enjoys her quiet life as the resident weirdo. She’s socially awkward and keeps to herself as much as she can get away with, but there’s something about Steve and his kids that bring out a side of her that she’s not all that familiar with. A nurturing, loving the family life warm side! As they put up the good fight of attempting to fight their attraction for one another, Steve and Camille figure out that danger is near, they just don’t know who or why!
