eARC Provided by publisher through Netgalley
Silent Night, Snowy Night . . . Colin Malloy enjoys spending Christmas with his family at the Malloy ranch. But this holiday, what he really wants to do is to get closer to the alluring Dr. Anita Cross. So when a blizzard conspires to keep her from joining the Malloy family's festivities, neither snow, sleet, nor spun-out cars will prevent Colin from reaching her side. As the new doctor in town, Anita is wholeheartedly devoted to her patients. So when a little boy needs her on this snowy night, she doesn't hesitate to care for him and send him home in time to spend Christmas with his family. An evening with a certain sexy cowboy will have to wait-or so she thinks. When a breathless Colin Malloy shows up at her clinic, Anita finds her cold, lonely night quickly heating up. And no crisis or well-meaning relative will stop them from making this a Christmas to remember . . .
I love Colin. He's kind of been in the background in the other books in this series. He gave up a lot to help care for his three nephews. Now that they are grown he's 40 and wondering if it's finally time for him to have a life to find love. Just so happens Dr. Anita Cross moved to town and he can't help himself around here. He's drawn to her. When a snowstorm keeps her at the clinic to care for patients he volunteers to pick her up and bring her to the ranch. The snowstorm isn't going to make it easy and instead he gets stuck with her in town with blizzard conditions and no power. Totally sigh worthy novella. You know a novella is good when you wish it was a longer. This one made me wish for more and more and more. More Colin and Anita. Hopefully it we will get to see more of their relationship in the next book in this series. The Malloy's are such big and caring family that look out for everyone. A feel good Christmas story for sure!
