Staff Review by Tara G.

I am so delighted about Christmas with my Cowboy, and the three wonderful stories that combine the magic of Christmas, the beauty of the west…and three fabulous heroes!

Diana Palmer, Lindsay McKenna and Margaret Way are my heroines! They are the pioneer writers who have helped to mold the romance genre into what it is today. I first started reading Diana Palmer when I got out of college, and began work in publishing. Her books filled me with hope and optimism, and her vision of the western hero was a dream I wanted to experience again and again. It was so exciting that a few years later, I would be her editor! And she has been my dear friend ever since. I love her books, her incredible dedication to her readers, and her amazing talent. So, of course I was honored to be working with her again on The Snow Man—the start of a new series of short stories set in Colorado, and written for Kensington Books.

Lindsay McKenna is my friend and author from way back, as well. Lindsay first started writing in the 1980s, and she wanted to bring the world of the American soldier to readers. She was is one of the pioneers of the military romance genre. She has written just about 200 novels, and thrilled readers with emotional, compelling stories that celebrate the contribution of our military men and women. She often sets her stories in the west. Her short story, Kassie’s Cowboy, combines both and is a part of her ongoing series, Wind River Valley. I loved this story, and how tender Kassie is rescued by former Marine, Travis Grant—a man she’d loved for years.

Margaret Way is best known for her romances set in Australia, the country where she was born, grew up and still lives. Margaret’s love of her native land comes through in all her books, and she features the Australian outback, one of her favorite settings, in Her Outback Husband. Her married hero and heroine live on their family’s cattle ranch, and are gloriously happy. However, one vicious rumor tears them apart, and it is only through the magic of Christmas (and Scott’s mother’s matchmaking) that they are brought back together and their love healed.

I hope you enjoy this amazing anthology as much as I did. It was so much fun to bring three masters of the romance genre together! And at Christmas time, no less. Enjoy!
