Christmas at Copper Mountain by Jane Porter

Taming of the Sheenans - Book 1

Since the loss of her family in a plane crash, Harley Diekerhoff has led a quiet life and keeps to herself. Taking the temporary job at the Copper Mountain Ranch as widower Brock Sheenan's housekeeper seems perfect for her. But her calm cocoon is invaded with the arrival of Brock's pre-teen twins, Mack and Molly who've never experienced a proper Christmas and before she knows it, Harley's determined to make their holiday perfect.

Annoyed at first by Harley's interference, Brock is secretly pleased she's changed Mack and Molly's world. It doesn't hurt that he finds Harley incredibly attractive, fierce, smart and passionate. It's also an added bonus that she's not afraid to challenge him and get his blood heated! But when sparks fly and the attractions sizzles between them, Harley's not so sure she can handle something permanent with this dark, taciturn cowboy who doesn't know how to let her in. But Brock is determined to hold on to her and praying for a Christmas miracle...

This is a touching Christmas story which warms the heart. Harley takes a job at a ranch in Montana to escape the trappings of Christmas. Three years prior she lost her husband and children in a plane crash and holidays are too hard. Brock lives with strict rules and lost his interest in Christmas, despite raising two children on his own after his wife died when they were babies. Harley wins over the ranch hands by being herself and doing things her way, which seems to go fine until Brock's kids arrive unexpectedly. Harley's first thought is to bolt--she can't handle kids, because she loved being a mother--but life has a funny way of warming the heart. Harley helps Brock to see he needs to be a more demonstrative father to his children, and Brock and his kids push their way into Harley's grieving soul. As Harley and Brock start falling for each other, they realize there's a little bit of Christmas magic, and a guardian angel pushing them to find a new life, and love together.

A beautiful story written with a lot depth and emotion. This story would make a great Christmas movie. Harley Diekerhoff lost her husband and children three years ago to a horrendous plane crash. She still grieves for them. Not able to bear the holidays this year, she decides to skip Christmas with her family and goes to Marietta Montana to fill in on a temporary job working as housekeeper for Brock Sheenan on his ranch. It's only for three months. That should get her past the holidays so she doesn't have to be reminded by her family of what she has lost. She enjoys her job until unexpected guests arrive and causes a lot of memories to creep back up on her. She was just trying to work and forget her past and pain. Little does she know Christmas miracles are real and they do happen to people when they least expect it. Many angels have been working on this one. Will Harley accept the gift that has been given to her and Brock or will she quit her job and go back home just to avoid her feelings?

posted originally on dec 5, 2013 Christmas at Copper Mountain by Jane Porter Love holiday reads and was happy to learn this one was free on the first few days of it's release. Harley Diekerhoff works at the Copper Mountain Ranch for the holiday season to keep her distance from her family in CA. Her gruff Boss Brock Shennan had hired her via a temp agency. They needed a housekeeper that knew the work and did it well. He had lost his wife after 1 1/2 years and he didn't want a chatty housekeeper. It'd be a perfect fit. She has had her own tragedy and we learn of it as the story goes along. She is really concerned when the biggest storm of the year hits and her boss is out in it. to track down some lost cattle. The other ranch hands won't go look for him-the boss would have their heads. Love that she cooks for them all. She gets the surprise of her life later that night and confronts the boss when he arrives.. is she going to leave or can she stick it out? Love that their feelings on many topics come out of their shells and how they've kept them hidden so long.

Get your tissues ready!! Only 97 pgs. But boy, alot can happen in that time. I didnt want to put it down, finished in one setting. Harley took a job mostly to keep busy after the loss of her loved ones. Brock hired a temp to clean and cook. Thinking she would look like a liinebacker with a name like hers..Two lonely people trying to deal with grieve in their own way. Must read!!!

I loved this. The only dislike was how she kept hinting at what happened to her deceased kids. Just spit it out. Overall a fun quick read about a donna reed type housekeeping for a surly john wayne type. Lots of sass.

This shorter novel was a potential tear jerker. It was a little difficult to stay with in the beginning. It didn't make sense until almost the end. Worth sticking with.

Wonderful read. Lets one experience a wide range of emotions. Certainly worth your time. Will read another book by this author .

An emotional but ultimately heart warming read. All the characters are well written and pull an immediate emotional response from you, both good and bad, like or dislike, making them real characters you can relate to. A cute story line with some heartbreaking moments, Harley and Brock have both travelled a very bumpy road to reach the point they are at now and both carry huge amounts of baggage, but together they can begin to heal and heal Brock's strained relationship with his children. Yes they fall fast, but this is fiction and fantasy and that is what makes it nice to read and escape into.....we don't want practical and real life! I really enjoyed this, it is the first I have read by Jane Porter and I will be reading the rest of the series.

Really enjoyed this story of a Christmas miracle of love. Good beginning to the series of ranch life on Copper Mountain. Would be a great Christmas read. Only drawback is how very short the story is. It just gets good and then its over. So must read the rest!

This Christmas novella features a second chance at love for widower Brock Sheenan and widow Harley Diekerhoff. She has taken a job at the remote ranch to get away from memories of her husband and children who died in a plane crash. However, the quiet life on the ranch is upended when Brock's young twins arrive home from boarding school unexpectedly. This wasn't what Harley signed up for, and she doesn't know if she can make this Christmas special for the twins without dredging up old memories and having her heart break again. This story is a tearjerker, but who wouldn't want to spend Christmas at a snow-covered Montana ranch with a stoic, handsome cowboy and a couple of precocious kids?

At only 90 pages, this book was quite pricey. Not much of a plot.
