His Christmas Cowgirl by Alissa Callen

Headstrong cowgirl Peta Dixon has put her life on hold this Christmas to prove she can run her ranch as well as any man. There isn't anything she can't ride, fix, or stare down, and the only things to scare her are long hemlines and sky-high heels.

Self-made rancher Garrett Ross normally doesn't take orders – he gives them. But when asked to step in to act as a temporary foreman on a Montana ranch over the holidays, he can't refuse.

Yet when Garrett meets the beautiful and stubborn ranch owner, he realizes he's signed on for a whole lot of trouble. Cynical and jaded, he has no time for feelings. And when Peta meets the man she's to share her life with until Christmas, she discovers she no longer wants to be the person others expect her to be...

Will the rancher finally listen to his heart and admit he can't live without a certain straight-talking cowgirl?

Cowboys, a Cowgirl, Christmas in Marietta recipe for a wonder book. Yes it is. Oh my goodness it was so good to catch up with so many of my favorite friends from Marietta. The Dixon family is pretty big and everyone it seems like is getting married except Peta. Nope she IS running her ranch or will be once she gets back from her vaca in Europe. Not her fault goAl her foreman broke his hip right. But handsome Garrett is able to take over. Oh my there is more to Garrett than meets the eyes. I do enjoyed this book. Loved catching up with so many of my old friends all over Marietta. Visiting so many of the sights like Grey's and Sage 's . There's the Christmas Stroll on how I wish the one in my town was closer to Marietta' s stroll. What a warm living book that for me shows strength of character and personal strength.

When a cowgirl butts heads with her temporary foreman, more than opinions collide. Secrets and stubbornness threaten to derail their hearts in this Christmas romance.

Peta Dixon returns to Marietta Montana after a month long vacation to find her temporary ranch foreman Garrett Ross. Peta is determined to get him out of her house and then back to where he came from. Garrett thinks Peta is like every other woman he has met and is only worried about her social calendar. It doesn't take long for Garrett to realize he was wrong about her. But can they keep everything businesslike between them or will there hearts get involved. I really liked this story from seeing all the old characters show up to seeing a hardworking cowgirl realize what she wants. Alissa Callen knows how to write an entertaining story for sure.

I enjoyed reading this Christmas story and knowing more about Peta. She is a strong, hard-working woman and makes no excuses. While she is gone the new foreman overseeing her ranch, makes himself at home, in her house! You could almost cut the tension between her and Garrett when she returns. Their strong personalities make for a great story. I received an advanced copy from the author and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

Peta returns to find that the temporary foreman is moved into her ranch house. Garrett is helping out as foreman for an old friend and is determined to remain until he recovers. These two strong willed people learn to stop and discover the depths of each other and compromise. This is part of the Wildflower Ranch series of Montana and well worth the read. Pull up a comfortable chair and prepare to be whisked out to the Big Sky Country. Ebook from Netgalley and publishers with thanks. Opinions are my own.

Peta Dixon is a strong willed cowgirl. She knows how to run her ranch and will always be the one in control. When she clashes with Garrett Ross, sparks fly. He won't give in to this woman. He knows that beauty means betrayal. I loved seeing these two work together and learn to trust. Their chemistry is powerful and they become involved. That is until the past comes between them. Will Peta follow her heart? She hates to be in the spotlight. Garrett knows that she's strong but Peta isn't sure. Garrett has known pain and he guards his secrets. He's learned the hard way that people will use you for their own gain. I really wanted these two to have a future together. I like these characters and wanted the best for them. I enjoy visiting Marietta and Paradise Valley with its Wildflower Ranches. Here the people are old friends and the Christmas Spirit is plentiful. Alissa Callen has written a lovely romance that made me smile. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Peta Dixon reruns home to the Bluebell Falls Ranch after a month away in Europe with her sister, Kendall, to discover that the man who her foreman had employed to run the ranch (after he himself was injured appears) to have moved into her home! Garrett Ross is acting as ranch foreman because he cares for Hal, her foreman, not because he needs the job or doesn't have anything better to do. Hal was important in helping turn his life around when he was a teenager and Garrett will do all he can to help him however he can. First impressions count and overcoming them can take time and effort, even when these impression are the complete antithesis of what a person is really like. Peta and Garrett had never previously met and their initial impressions of each other certainly aren't favourable! However, their mutual attraction and growing respect for each other might not be enough for them to give their love a chance. There are secrets, personal experiences and much more to be overcome before this couple can attain their HEA together! This is another story set in the small town of Marietta and I’ve loved every story based there that I’ve read so far - it is a great place to escape to in a story. As usual, even though this is the sixth book in this particular series, it can easily be read as a standalone as each book has a different couple as the main focus. However, if you’ve read other novels in this or any of the other related series, it is a great opportunity to meet up with some of the characters from other stories by other authors but all centred around this endearing town and community. I was gifted an ARC of this novel via NetGalley with no obligation or requirement to review it. This is my honest review after reading the ARC.

Misperceptions quickly righted Perceptions are so off sometimes and classic examples are at the beginning of this story.... Peta is returning from a trip to Europe with her sister and has indulged in items she never usually enjoy's, manicures, dress, makeup, etc..... Garrett is a a mega bucks guy hiding out or more realistic filling is as a ranch foreman, but is worth millions as paparazzi like to follow him around.... Both misjudge the other but are quick to correct their perceptions, but take forever to admit their feelings for each other.... a little uncertain about the way the paparazzi are dealt with but really enjoyed this story and how all the other wildflower couples joined in it.

"His Christmas Cowgirl" by Alissa Callen is book number six in the Wildflower Ranch" series.  This is Peta Dixon and Garrett Ross' story. Garrett as a favor to Hal has agreed to fill in as foreman on Peta's ranch until Hal recovers from his injury.   When Garrett and Peta meet their first impressions are not so good of each other.  As they work side by side things begin to change.   This is a sweet story but the romance was slow in coming.  The first half of the book was pretty slow but the second half was much better.

I so enjoyed this Christmas story that takes place in Wildflower Ranch. When ranch owner, Peta returns home after a European vacation and she finds her new ranch foreman, Garrett living in her house, first impressions are all wrong. Peta is a very strong woman, nothing stands in her way. She is not afraid of hard work. Garrett sees her as a girly girl but soon, Peta will be changing his mind or is Peta enjoying the girly girl. As they soon learn to work together, a budding relationship begins. I highly recommend this story during the upcoming Christmas season.

Peta Dixon has been that one character I have been wondering about as I have read the series. She is an independent and such a strong woman, it would take a special person to win her heart. And Garrett Ross fits the bill perfectly. Together they have such a chemistry and magic it nearly outshines the Christmas lights. I loved how the ranch life got a good part in the story, as it is Peta's heart and soul. The cowgirl's life was so well twined into the vine of the tale, into how Peta and Garrett got to know each other, how they learn to see the other as they truly are. And all the better that Hal and Garrett had that connection through their lives, the whole series was all coming together in a beautiful story that captured my heart. There's the guaranteed Marietta, Montana Christmas traditions, and weddings, and the Grey's making it all feel like arriving home, visiting family and friends. Yet the developing relationship between Peta and Garrett took the center stage, and it wasn't necessarily an easy to be in the spotlight. They share so much, have so much in common, yet they have lived such a different lives it takes hardship and adjustments to get where they want to be. His Christmas Cowgirl is an alluring, charming, even dazzling love story that has both elegant high heels and comfortable boots. It is a story where dreams come true even though through some aches and concerns. The story had me longing for Christmas, family, friends, love all around, the lights, the joy, the cheer, and Peta and Garrett made me sigh and smile even had a tear with all the unpredictability of love. What a delightful tale! ~ Four Spoons with a teaspoon on the side

I really enjoyed reading His Christmas Cowgirl by Alissa Callen, book six of the Wildflower Ranch series. Peta Dixon returns from her European vacation with her sister Kendall to find Garrett Ross, her temporary ranch foreman, living in her house, overstepping his boundaries. Garrett takes one look at his “boss” and thinks Peta is just like all the other women he has met, only after social status not hard working. It doesn’t take long for these two of them to realize how wrong those impressions are. Peta loves her ranch and it shows in her everyday involvement. Garrett drops everything to help out when the man who’s always been there for him, Hal the Bluebell Falls’ ranch foreman, breaks his hip and needs Garrett’s help. As Garrett and Peta get to know each other more than the ranch is at risk, namely their hearts. This was a sweet, fun and entertaining story with very likeable and authentic characters that you want to cheer on, hoping for that happy ending. The characters were well written with complex characteristics. The story line was riveting and kept my attention to the very end. I enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down, reading it in one day. I recommend this book to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

Peta Dixon's life goal was to run Bluebell Falls Ranch on her own and prove to her father that she could run it as well as any man. While she was on a European vacation with her sister, her ranch foreman, Hal, got injured and ended up in the hospital. Hal called the one man he knew that could handle taking over his job until he was back on his feet again, Garrett Ross. Garrett knew the ins and outs of running a ranch even though he now made his money buying and selling ranches. But when Hal needed his help, Garrett didn't hesitate to rush to his aid. Peta didn't have time for a relationship, but from the first moment she laid eyes on Garrett, all sorts of thoughts went through her mind. Garrett's first impression of Peta was that she reminded him of every other materialistic woman from his past. But her looks were very deceiving. Once Garrett got to know Peta, he realized she was a down to earth country girl with all good intentions. she valued her ranch, the livestock and everyone who worked for her. Together, Garrett and Peta learn to open up and trust each other and accept whatever the future holds for them. I could tell the author did a lot of research on this book with all of the ranch scenes, especially the cattle drive. She did a great job integrating it with Peta and Garrett’s romance. I also enjoyed reading about Ivy and Rhett’s wedding

This is my first book by Alissa Callen but it won't be my last, as I'm anxious to read more of the Wildflower Ranch books. I liked the meet-up between Peta (love this unusual heroine's name!) and Garrett and their first impressions of one another. Peta is running the family ranch and loving it, except for the loneliness that comes with being a female rancher in her home town, where everyone sees her as just one of the guys. Garrett is in town to help an old friend and doesn't want to start anything with his temporary boss, even if she sparks something inside of him. Their romance starts slowly but I liked that about them. They are both cognizant for the pitfalls of a relationship between them. But they just can't fight the chemistry. The ending was sweet, the secondary characters fun and interesting. I look forward to visiting Paradise Valley Montana again soon!

Loved this one! Really enjoyed revisiting some of my favorite characters from the previous Wildflower Ranch books. This one can easily be read on it's own though. Peta Dixon has always wanted to run the family ranch. Never a girly girl, she's comfortable with her place in the world. She must admit though, seeing all her siblings finding love and their HEA's has her wanting a love of her own. Ranching doesn't really give many opportunities to meet new people though. Returning from a trip with her sister, she learns quickly she has a new ranch foreman. It appears that due to a bunkhouse flood, the foreman is staying in the main house with her. Will this turn out to be a problem or an opportunity?? She did want to meet new people, right?? A fun read and one I highly recommend.
