Christmas may be coming, but it's just another day at the ranch as far as Eli Pickett is concerned. Someone has to take care of the herd and that means no holiday vacation for him. But that's just the way he likes it--it’s not like he has a woman to spend time with anyways. Most women don't want the ranch life, or the surly, silent cowboy that comes with it. Fine with him. He'd rather have the quiet of a roaring fire and the company of his dogs.

Cassandra Horn is trying to make it to her parents' winter cabin in Wyoming before the blizzard hits. She desperately needs a vacation from the chaos of Manhattan...and her boss’s boyfriend, who is making her life miserable. But Cass never makes it to the cabin. 

A raging snowstorm causes her car to crash, where she's found unconscious by Eli. When Cass wakes, she has no memories of who she is. Eli takes one look at Cass's big blue eyes and dark curls, and like a Christmas miracle, falls head over heels in love. But while the attraction is mutual, can she give her heart to this cowboy if she’s not sure it’s hers to give? 

Xmas and could I resist this one? 

Cass is escaping to her parent's winter cabin in Wyoming before the blizzard hits. She needs to escape Manhattan and her boss' boyfriend who will not stop harassing her for sex (ugh - call the police on that jerk). The snowstorm hits before she can make it and she crashes her car. Eli, our hunk of a cowboy, comes to the rescue. There is no way he can take her anywhere but the house on the ranch he works at. She awakes with barely any memories. Things happen and they fall in love. A Christmas miracle for sure. 

This was very, very sweet. Not a lot drama. Even the drama that does pop up is easily solved once Cass can get all her memories back. Poor thing. She needs to file a complaint against that ahole Ken. >_> That is for sure sexual harassment. Not okay one bit. 

It wasn't love at first sight and that made me happy. They grew to be friends and then more and it fit well. I adored Eli but he had a rough, lonely past and he needed time. And Cass has no barely any memories...sooo...

Cass was okay...she was a little annoying. She got better when she wasn't bored and got some more memories back. Empty-headed chits are usually that was to be expected.

The ending was good and made sense especially with the uncertainty. I surprised myself for not being annoyed by Eli being so forgiving. It is a weird situation and so I would find my callous heart forgiving Cass too. It had to be done.

Overall, this was very sweet and a quick read. If you are looking for a good cowboy book with xmas as the back-drop, I recommend this. I'll give this 4 stars.
