A Cowboy's Christmas Promise by Maggie McGinnis
In a captivating novel spiced with holiday magic—perfect for fans of Rachel Gibson, Susan Mallery, and Molly O’Keefe—a rugged Montana man mends a Northeast girl’s jaded heart.
Boston veterinarian Hayley Scampini tends the city’s pampered pets but dreams of the rural life of a country vet. She’s single and determined to stay that way, convinced that love isn’t permanent enough to trust. Then a vacation to the Whisper Creek dude ranch introduces her to Daniel McKee, a sexy single dad who runs the kind of veterinary practice she aspires to—and rattles her conviction to keep men at a distance.
Managing a thriving practice, coping with the loss of his wife, and fighting a custody battle with his in-laws over his twin daughters, Daniel couldn’t be more overwhelmed. Hayley is a godsend, accompanying him in the field and winning over his girls. It doesn’t take Daniel long to realize he’s falling for this woman, hard and fast. So before Hayley returns to Boston, he extracts a promise: that she will return to Whisper Creek for Christmas. It’s the perfect time and place to show Hayley that the promise of a beautiful life together is something she can believe in.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
First of all I would like to thank NetGalley and Random House-Loveswept for providing us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.
I know its a little late as it being past christmas, but personally I feel that this book would work just as easily as a anytime book as it does as a christmas one.
Hayley is such a cute and fun character, though she has been badly hurt in the past, she finds herself quickly falling in love with Daniel and his girls. Which I must say are awesome little characters. She is playful, loving and very understanding with the girls.
Daniel and what he has been through breaks my heart, there was even one point in this book that I found myself grabbing at the tissues. To be a single parent then have someone try and threaten your happiness after already having gone through so much. But I have to say that Daniel handles himself great during that hard time. To the point that he is able to help Hayley see that she really does belong in Montana with him.
Again even though this is titled like a Christmas story, I highly recommend picking it up and reading it now.
I would give this book five very solid kisses.
Happy Reading... Adri
