Oklahoma Christmas Blues
Darryl is on a quest for peace. His chance at fatherhood was taken from him long ago, and an IED in Iraq ensured he’d never get another. In Big Falls, the McIntyre brothers hire him to keep an eye on their beautiful cousin Sophie in case her criminal ex shows up. He doesn’t expect to fall head over heels.
Hang Your Heart on Christmas
Robert “Dent” Hernandez is a U.S. Marshal bent on bringin’ ’em in, preferably upright in the saddle, but draped across it works, too. Less interested in justice than revenge, he uses the badge as a license to hunt for his father’s killers. When an arrest goes wrong and he’s temporarily remanded to quaint Evergreen, Wyoming to act as interim sheriff, he writhes over the delay to his plans. That is, until he meets the very pretty, but suspiciously jittery schoolteacher. What is she so afraid of? Turns out, a lot of folks in Evergreen are keeping secrets—ones that may shake the foundation of everything Dent believes in.
