A Lawman's Christmas: A McKettricks of Texas Novel by Linda Lael Miller
If you are familiar with the McKettrick series and enjoy holiday novellas, find a copy of A Lawman's Christmas. Clay McKettrick is out on his own to carve a place for himself. Upon entering his new position as Blue River's sheriff, Clay meets widow Dara Rose Nolan and her daughters. She is currently living in the sheriff's house, but he's not interested in uprooting her, just helping her.
The joy and giving of Christmas comes before the holiday and follows through this special time of year. Miller shares the story of Clay McKettrick and leaves openings for further McKettrick clan tales. It's a quick holiday read. If you're not a fan of amorous scenes the epilogue can be easily skipped.
