By: Katie Lane, Emma Cane & Jennifer Ryan

Blurbs
What’s better than Christmas? Christmas and Cowboys. Contemporary romance stars Emma Cane, Jennifer Ryan, and Katie Lane join together for a holiday anthology to remember.

“The Christmas Cabin” by Emma Cane
Sandy, recently diagnosed with MS and abandoned by her husband, is determined to make Christmas special for her five-year-old Nate. While they’re trooping through the woods to cut down their Christmas tree, a snowstorm arises, and a mysterious old ranch hand points them toward an abandoned cabin. Little do they realize, the ranch hand also guides cowboy Doug Thalberg to the same place…

“Can’t Wait” by Jennifer Ryan
Before The Hunted series, Caleb and Summer had a whirlwind romance not to be forgotten...
Caleb Bowden has a lot to thank his best friend, Jack, for - saving his life in Iraq and giving him a job helping him run his family’s ranch. He also introduced him to the most incredible woman he’s ever met. Too bad he can’t ask her out. You do not date your best friend’s sister. Summer and Caleb share a closeness she’s never felt for anyone, but the stubborn man refuses to turn the flirtatious friendship into something meaningful. Frustrated and tired of wishing to be happy, Caleb tells Jack how he feels about Summer. With his friend’s help, he plans a surprise Christmas proposal she’ll never forget - because he can’t wait to make her his wife. 

 "Baby It's Cold Outside" by Katie Lane
Alana Hale is tired of irresponsible beach bums whose only plan for the future is catching the next “awesome” wave. So when she tries her luck with an internet dating service and ends up hitting the Responsible-Sensitive-Man jackpot, she wastes no time accepting Clint McCormick’s invitation to spend the holidays on his family’s ranch. But when an unexpected blizzard strands Alana, she’ll be forced to find refuge in the arms of a womanizing rodeo cowboy who knows how to take the chill off a cold winter night. Now Alana will have to make a choice between the man who heats her blood and the man who touches her heart. Or will she? Mistaken identity will give Alana the man of her dreams and a very “Marry” Christmas.

My Review
The Christmas Cabin by Emma Cane
Sandy just wants to make Christmas perfect for her son Nate. Last year his father left them and Christmas wasn't to good. They go out to look for the perfect Christmas tree. Once they find it they realize they are lost in a snow.storm. A stranger points her in the direction of a cabin. Once they make it there she starts a fire hoping to get survive the storm. Another stranger tumbles in half frozen and she learns he owns the cabin. They are snowed in and as  Christmas comes closer Sandy tries to make the best of it. Doug hasn't been feeling the holiday spirit but Sandy gets him in the mood. He soon realizes she has showed him so much more than what Christmas is about.

I really liked this story. Sandy is so strong and sweet. She may have an illness but she doesn't let it get her down. She and Doug have something special growing between them and you get to see it bloom. They share a simple few days snowed in but it shows them what they truly need. Nate is such a sweet boy you love him right away. I love how this book brought back simpler times. You don't need fancy things to have a wonderful Christmas and you never know when you will find love.

Can't Wait by Jennifer Ryan
Summer has been in love with her brother's best friend for a while. She just can't get him to see how she isn't just his best friends little sister. Caleb wants Summer but would never cross the line and anger his best friend. He would rather leave than take a chance on being with Summer. It's hard to fight wanting her when she lets it known over and over she is crazy for him. Will he ever let Summer get close and show her he loves her as well.

Summer is a character you will love. She knows what she wants and will stop at nothing to get him. She still plays it cool around her brother as she doesn't want to cause problems. She wants to help Caleb get over the ghost of his past and show him she would be the perfect wife.  Caleb is a gentleman and it really shows. He is so afraid to let his love show. He works hard and once he makes his mind up you see how romantic he is. I love how he teases Summer. This is an adorable story about two great people who try to do the right thing even if it will keep them apart. I love the ending and think it is perfect for this book.

Baby It's Cold Outside by Katie Lane
Alana goes online looking for the perfect man. She thinks she has found him in Clint. She decides to surprise him by going to meet him for Christmas. Along the way she gets stuck then snowed in with a hot cowboy. While she can't keep her hands off him she soon finds he is Clint' s brother. The brother who likes to play the field. She knows she has to end things with Clint and say goodbye to the cowboy who heats her up.Not everything is as she thinks and she will soon see she may have a great Christmas after all.

This is a great story as you get sizzle, laughs and more. I kinda figured out what was going on but I have to say I loved Clint' s reaction near the end. Alana is awesome and can throw a mean snowball lol. I have to say one brother does seem like a jerk but I really liked Clint. They are a perfect match and you just wait for them to work things out.

Overall
I will say this book is wonderful as it has three fantastic stories each one gives you a great Christmas feeling. You get love, heart warming, laughs sizzle and hot cowboys. How much more could you ask for. I know I wouldn't mind being snowed in with any of these cowboys. I look forward to getting more books by all three authors as they are all great writers and you want more of there books. Looking for a fantastic Christmas book here it is.
