THE COWBOY'S CHRISTMAS PROPOSAL is a tender Christmas short romance that is heart-warming with a holiday theme in the background. Judy Christenbery creates great characters, a detailed ranch scene and captivating plot in this romance. Penny Bradford lost her parents in a car accident. Her father had treated her like a princess, protecting her after the death of her brother. With her parents gone, Penny must learn to run the ranch by herself. Jake Larson isn't too happy about the advances his boss Dexter's wife makes. He is a man of integrity. When Dexter recommends him as ranch manager to Penny, it seems both get what they want....except the growing attraction between them puts a kink in their daily life. Can Penny and Jake work together to tackle all the needs of the ranch and still find time for love? THE COWBOY'S CHRISTMAS PROPOSAL has a touching portrayal of a small town's support for its residents and for Penny's love for her father as she steps into his shoes. This theme also highlights the tenderness and worthiness of the hero Jake. Readers will appreciate the nicely detailed issues facing cattle ranches. Judy Christenberry integrated them into the romance, not just as description but as the center of the characterization and plot. This Harlequin Romance read had a younger and gentle feel in the heroine which will appeal to both adult readers seeking variety and to younger readers. The steam factor is mild (and appropriate for younger readers). The hero and heroine provide good role models and good reading as the author shows them liking their job and good to each other despite the miscommunications and uncertainties that occur. THE COWBOY'S CHRISTMAS PROPOSAL shows both the daily practical side of ranching and the way a ranch reaches out to the local community --- a very appropriate Christmas theme. By focusing on the theme of giving, holiday traditions, food and the Christmas tree, THE COWBOY'S CHRISTMAS PROPOSAL creates the wonderful atmosphere for a Christmas read while also being subtle enough in its holiday theme to build organically throughout the novel with one's knowledge of the characters. Some very heart-warming moments!

If this is how she writes other books, I will not seek her books out for future reads

Maybe I didn't give this story enough of a chance but the writing was very immature sounding, definitely not what I expected from Harlequin. And I'm not talking about sexually, I didn't get that far. It read like a See Jane Run type of book. Words were repeated in two and three sentences in a row, which is a pet peeve of mine. The female lead sounded like a naive, uneducated twit. Very disappointed, I was looking forward to reading a good cowboy Christmas romance...this was not it.

Easy reading, good way to spend an evening. Not to deep or complicated.

Review by Jen: sweet, fast read. Penny has inherited her family ranch after her parents' tragic deaths, but she has absolutely no idea how to run it. She hires Jake to be the ranch manager, but is wary of his "ladies' man" reputation. However, long hours working together and the Christmas season bring them closer and allow them to find love. Ms. Christenberry is a new author to me and I found that I enjoyed her book. She brought a smile to me lips and tears to my eyes. In a book with less than 200 pages, she managed to develop her characters, have an interesting plot with enough tension to make the romance worth the read.
