A COWBOY CHRISTMAS MIRACLE (Burnt Boot, Texas #4)
Opposites might attract...
The Brennans and the Gallaghers put aside their one-hundred-year feud every Tuesday for their weekly poker game. This week, the stakes are sky-high. Goaded to recklessness, Declan Brennan bets one thousand dollars that he can woo the next woman to walk into the saloon. A minute later, fiery-haired Betsy Gallagher pushes through the doors. If Declan can tame this wild Gallagher, he'll have earned every penny.
If they don't kill each other first...
Betsy can outshoot anybody in Burnt Boot and loves ranching more than anything-until she falls for Declan. He's fallen for her too. But when she discovers what sparked their courtship, Declan will need a Christmas miracle to save his hide-and his heart.
This story opens up with the guys playing poker at the bar that is off limits to fighting. The game is slowing down and an argument ensues between Declan Brennan, and Tanner Gallagher and it involves the next girl that walks through the door. In walks Betsy Gallagher, Declan has always liked her but because of the feud they cannot be together. He must be with her in order to win the bet but at what cost. Now Betsy knows something is up in the bar but can’t figure it out. When the two of them come together later that night by chance they decide to come up with a plan to save the Christmas pageant since each family destroyed the other ones. Having to sneak around to get items only puts them together more and at same time they find out that they like some of the same things. The more time they spend together they begin to wish for the feud to be over. They come up with more ways to get together and you begin to route for them. This is a very good story that makes both families look at one another and decide what is important. I thoroughly enjoyed their time making a snowman, and also as you get to the end. A very good story that goes along with this series. I got this book from netgalley. I gave it 5 stars. Follow us at: www.1rad-readerreviews.com
