USA Today Bestselling Author Shanna Hatfield writes character-driven romances with relatable heroes and heroines. Her historical westerns have been described as “reminiscent of the era captured by Bonanza and The Virginian” while her contemporary works have been called “laugh-out-loud funny, and a little heart-pumping sexy without being explicit in any way.”


New Releases

To kick off the second annual Cowboys and Christmas Blog Tour and the JCCF campaign,
 two brand new holiday romances will release Nov. 12!

Capturing Christmas CoverCapturing Christmas is the third installment in the sweet holiday western Rodeo Romance series.
Life is hectic on a good day for rodeo stock contractor Kash Kressley. Between dodging flying hooves and babying cranky bulls, he barely has time to sleep. The last thing Kash needs is the entanglement of a sweet romance, especially with a woman as full of fire and sass as the redheaded photographer he rescues at a rodeo.
Determined to capture the best images possible, rodeo photographer Celia McGraw is fearless and feisty. Not one to back down from a challenge, her biggest risk isn’t in her work. Danger lurks in the way her heart responds to one incredibly handsome stock contractor. Will Kash and Celia capture the spirit of the season?

The Christmas Vow CoverThe Christmas Vow is the fourth book in the Hardman Holidays sweet Victorian romance series.
Columbia River Pilot Adam Guthry returns to his hometown of Hardman, Oregon, after the sudden death of his best friend. Emotions he can’t contain bubble to the surface the moment he sees the girl who shattered his heart eleven years ago.
Widow Tia Devereux escapes her restrictive life in Portland, returning to the home she knew and adored as a girl in Hardman. She and her four-year-old son, Toby, settle into the small Eastern Oregon community, eager for the holiday season. Unfortunately, the only man she’s ever loved shows up, stirring the embers of a long-dead romance into a blazing flame. When her former father-in-law, a corrupt judge, decides he wants to raise Toby, Adam may be the only hope she has of keeping her son.

My thoughts...

People who know me know that I'm not a fan of reading Christmas books until the day after Thanksgiving. That tradition worked really well for me before I started blogging. Now...not so much!  

In fact, I've started to like reading them here and there throughout the year, most especially in July! Ha! 

But like I said, since I'm not blogging I've had to change my personal rules just a little bit. Of course being from Chicago usually around the time of the year it's cold and damp so you have at least the feeling of the holidays. Not so much this year. We are in the 70's! I know...what happened! 

See this is why I read them after Thanksgiving!

Okay, I'm done being a baby, now back to my review. I haven't before read anything by Shanna Hatfield but who can pass up cowboys & Christmas? I sure can't and I'm glad I didn't. I really enjoyed The Christmas Cowboy. I found it well-written and very sweet. 

The perfect book to put me in the mood for Christmas! I really enjoyed the characters too. You will enjoy watching the romance bloom between Tate and Kenzie. From their first meeting to the end of the book you cheer them on! 

I really enjoyed the idea of two people seeing each other in a airport and over time become attracted to each other without even meeting. The idea builds up the romance in your mind. 

This is the perfect book...series for for a great holiday read. Make sure to add it to your Christmas list of books to read! Also, add one for a friend or two. 

If you've read The Christmas Cowboy, or any other book by Shanna Hatfield I'd love to hear your thoughts! Don't forget to for Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund Thanks for stopping by and happy reading!
