He flips houses. She flips hearts…

Independent contractor Garrett Brown hopes to survive Christmas in Last Stand, Texas, without too much fuss. Not interested in the rancher lifestyle, he plans to flip the house he inherited on Cottonwood Ranch and move onto his next project. Little Cody, the nephew he’s raising, needs stability, and he’s got a home waiting for them in California. The last thing Garrett needs is to become attached to anyone—or any place—or to get involved with silly Christmas festivities.

Kindergarten teacher Nicole Russell adores Christmas and is counting on the holiday to get her through her recent at-the-altar break up. Tired of pitying looks from the townsfolk, she decides to chair the Honeysuckle Holiday Fundraiser. When she reaches out to the new owner of Cottonwood Ranch, the perfect venue site, she expects cooperation, not stonewalling. Undeterred, Nicole makes her case with persuasive arguments that the too-handsome stranger in town cannot dodge and they strike a bargain.

Nicole and Garrett are at odds, but their holiday pact and the power of Christmas may change both of their lives forever.


This sweet Christmas romance is sure to please as hearts are healed and dreams are made! With book two in her emotionally riveting Home to Texas series Charlene Sands delights her reader yet again with MERRY CHRISTMAS, COWBOY. The back stories of the main characters set an emotionally charged setting for their meeting and eventual pact to get through the holiday season and the holiday fundraiser. I enjoyed their stories and their connection.

Garrett has a sad soul and is quick to garner our attention and our sympathies. He’s got a heart of gold, but life hasn’t been easy on him and he doesn’t trust much anymore.

Nicole is a delight. Life has hit her a good one a time or two, but she’s still out there giving it her all and being a great friend to all she encounters.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who loves a sweet romance in a small town filled with kind-hearted characters and the town that loves them.
