'Tis the night before Christmas and all through the house is the presence of one wickedly hot cowboy who's come to stay for the holiday. Fiona Logan is downright shocked to return to her childhood home and find that the tall blond stranger who came to her rescue on an icy road will be sleeping just across the hall from her bedroom. Talk about temptation . . .

Jud Dawson never believed the Lucky Penny Ranch would live up to its name until now. Fiona is gorgeous, smart, funny, and everything he thought he'd never find. Now all he has to do is convince her to stick around town instead of hightailing it back to Houston. But with wild weather, nosy neighbors, and a new baby in the family, getting her to admit that she's falling in love might just take a Christmas miracle.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Brown’s latest Lucky Penny Ranch novel (after Hot Cowboy Nights) shows that love can be found in the most unexpected places. When Fiona Logan returns to her hometown of Dry Creek, Tex., for a family Christmas, she’s surprised to discover that gorgeous Jud Dawson is living at her family’s home. Though she is very attracted to Jud, she is leery of getting involved with a man, since she spent a long time broke and alone after her ex divorced her. As Fiona and Jud spend nights talking in his room, she becomes more drawn to him than ever, and she needs to decide whether to give in to their mutual lust. A captivating cast of characters fills the pages of this sweet and funny novel, which highlights the ups and downs of life in rural small town Texas. Agent: Erin Niumata, Folio Literary. (Oct.)

Gotta love those cowboys when their hearts are all aflutter! Where can you find a hot looking cowboy with a big heart clearly displayed on his sleeve, the patience of a saint, the fortitude to take on the town Grinch and the warmth of a sunny day when held in his big arms? Why in one of Carolyn Brown’s Christmas romances, of course! MERRY COWBOY CHRISTMAS is a Christmas romance junkie’s dream as one young woman comes home to gather her wits and lick her wounds from a disastrous marriage and life in the big city. Fiona hadn’t planned on staying in town, too small, too many people know your business, your past, and well, your entire life. She also hadn’t planned on Jud Dawson lassoing her heart and turning her world upside down with his warmth and charm, either. It was his friendship that really did it though and his sincere willingness to be a sounding board that had her rethinking her plans, of course, it would be nonsense to think she could fall in love again, so easily, right? Jud was a goner for the fiery Fiona, but he had to tread very carefully or he knew he would spook her and this filly would go running right out of town. Meanwhile, he is able to soften the crustiest old man around with a plan to break down the walls of his family’s biggest naysayer in town. Can you say, do you have any more family like you? Carolyn Brown has created a sweet and lovely romance just in time to celebrate Christmas, miracles and love. Admit it, we all will sneak in a little Holiday Happiness, even if we don’t admit it! Ms. Brown has taken a small and gossipy town, a devastating fire, the love shared in a family and created the spirit of Christmas sprinkled with love, passion and some pretty cute moments…yes, cute….trust me! A delightful read to sweeten and warm up your reading pile like marshmallows in hot chocolate! I received this copy from Forever in exchange for my honest review.

Fiona Logan comes home on Thanksgiving. This time, however, it’s to start her life over after a horrible divorce that forced her to leave her job. Almost to her family home, she loses control of her vehicle and meets Jud Dawson, who comes to her aid. I’m not huge on contemporaries (movies or books), but for some reason I will binge-watch Christmas movies and find some Christmas stories to read. I just love the holiday spirit. This book encompassed everything I love about those movies. Fiona is a strong woman trying to start all over but hating having to come home and admit everything she’s been through. Jud is a hawt knight in shining armor who just wants her to love him. The author does a great job of giving you that small-town feel, inflicted with a lot of faith. I really loved the book and highly recommend. **I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review

It is unbelievable to me that Carolyn Brown has only been writing books for 19 years. Of the 80 books she has already published, I've read almost all. Brown's ability to have me exploding with laughter is only overshadowed by her ability to have me in tears at so many tender moments. She is able to draw you into the life of the characters and will have you rooting for the couple very quickly. I especially love her ability to portray senior citizens. She writes some of the feistiest seniors and though they are secondary only, they are totally fleshed out. I would love to see her do a novel where the two main characters were seniors having a second chance at love. I always look forward to the release of a new Carolyn Brown novel as I know we'll be introduced to another awesome couple and get to watch them falling in love while one or both are kicking and screaming to stay single. Fiona and Jud were an awesome couple. Jud was ready for marriage while Fiona was damn sure she neither belonged in a small town or with a cowboy. I love that this story takes place at Christmas and especially loved seeing Fiona's family Christmas traditions. As always Brown's small town setting feels so similar to my own. We too were a dry county until only recently and with a mostly Southern Baptist community, many people had to store their beer in an ice chest rather than their frig so as not to offend older family members. Simply said, this is another super read by Carolyn Brown and the only thing that makes it bearable to finish is knowing that she'll have another one waiting to be read in a few months. Thank goodness she is such a prolific writer and has many more HEAs to reward her readers with.

Wow! This is my favorite of the Lucky Penny series! Carolyn Brown hooked me again. I loved this book! "Merry Christmas Cowboy" by Carolyn Brown is book number three in the "Lucky Penny" series. This is Jud Dawson and Fiona Logan's story. Jud is one special cowboy! You can't help but fall in love with him. Fiona is going through some rough times. Jud is perfect for Fiona. Will they take a chance on love? I don't know how Carolyn Brown does it but you feel a connection to her characters. The characters become your friends. I loved the side story of Dora June and Truman. I couldn't put this book down until I finished it. It was worth the lack of sleep! Loved it. If you love romances with cowboys, ranches, and Christmas, then you will love this book. If you haven't read any books in this series, you are missing out. Plan on a reading marathon because you will not be able to put any of the books in the series down. "Wild Cowboy Ways" is book one. "Hot Cowboy Nights" is book two. "Merry Christmas Cowboy" is book three. FYI, includes mature content. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley/Forever (Grand Central Publishing) in exchange for an honest review.

Ms. Brown exposes more of herself with each story she writes. Her stories transport readers to a more simple time, when caring was not a chore and hope was only a heartbeat away. Jud may be small town but he's much deeper than he looks. He yearns for his own chance at finding a place that fits. Love, family and happiness are his hidden dream, yet his reality is proving to be anything but. That is until a sassy filly touches him in all the right places. Merry Cowboy Christmas is perfect. Home, holidays and humour combine to create an endearing, nostalgic story of love. Truly felt like coming home.
