Two stories by two different authors Nobody’s Lover Cody Everett stopped celebrating Christmas when he lost his parents to an icy road at eighteen. Ever since, he lets the holidays pass as any other time of year. He figures he’ll play a few board games, hit a bar or two for an easy pickup if he gets lonely, and he doesn’t have to worry about his twin brother wanting to do the family thing because Beau feels just as he does about this time year. Everything changes when he rescues Kaleena Morgan. Kaleena can’t imagine finding happiness after painful loss, but she’s decided to rewrite her life and the Christmas holiday, and she’s determined to drag Cody into old and new experiences too. When she shows up at his house unannounced with big plans for the two of them, will he welcome her, or run her off his ranch? At Last Beau Everett loved being a horse rancher and loved Wyoming in the winter. He and his twin brother Cody ran the family ranch like a well-oiled machine. After the loss of their parents, what he didn’t like was the holiday season. Merry Christmas was on everyone's lips, and the town oozed with cheer. What he couldn’t seem to get enough of was Natasha Quinlin. She was an ebony beauty who could ride a horse in a rodeo like a champion and serve up a mean Tom Collin at the local bar and grill she owned. He wanted her to ride him like he was a prize stallion, but Beau knew he was in danger of being roped and branded by the fiery beauty. Natasha loved Beau Everett from the time she moved to Twin Falls and saw him walking the halls of the high school.
Then he was a cocky jock, and now he’d grown up into a sexy as hell cowboy that made her mouth dry. She knew the loss of his parents affected him more than anyone realized, and Natasha was determined this year to show home a few things. With her, Beau could make new Christmas memories, and that her love would be the balm for a scar that never really healed.
