Sweetest Sweet Cowboy Christmas novella! Candis knows how to touch the heart. Chase Morgan has left the stress of New York City behind to take his cousin, Abby Morgan, up on an offer to come visit Sweet for a little rest and relaxation – yes, that’s the same Abby Morgan who is marrying the handsome and adorable pain in the ass, Jackson Wilder. She has arranged for him to stay at the Magic Box Guest Ranch in Sweet, Texas and although, being back in Texas isn’t his most favorite thing in the world, especially at Christmastime, Sweet is better than going home to Stephenville. He just needs some quiet time to reassess his life, where he’s going, what he’s doing, and how to keep from dying in the process. Faith Walker loves Christmas and she especially loves it because it means she won’t have any snobby high-roller guests hanging around the ranch, only the underprivileged kids she makes Christmas for every year. It’s definitely the best time of year, or so she thought until her sister Paige called and begged her to open up one of the cottages for one New York City guest. If he weren’t a cousin of their best friends, Abby and Annie, she would’ve refused but she just couldn’t do that to friends. She decided he’d just have to make do with the bare necessities of the ranch – nothing special. Of course, the last thing she expected was to have her ‘unwanted’ guest turn out to be the most handsome man she’d ever seen and when he didn’t ask for anything special, except her...well, surprises come in all sizes. Let me just say that Candis managed to pack just as much of a wallop into her Sweet, Texas novella as she did into her full-length novels in the series. I guess I should have expected as much since her past novellas have always touched me to my heart. Whereas, perhaps, the core of this novella is more light-hearted than say Paige and Aiden’s in HOME SWEET HOME, which first introduced us to Sweet, Texas but all the same, it hit me with a whammy and yes, I ended up leaking tears at the end. I’m not going to tell you when or why my eyes started leaking because it would spoil things, but suffice it to say – it’s a sweet, Sweet, Texas ending as only Candis can conjure. SWEET COWBOY CHRISTMAS by Candis Terry is everything fans of the Sweet, Texas series expects from this wonderful writer of contemporary romance. With her words, she paints a picture of a ranch donned in Christmas lights, decked with holly, and wreaths, and conjures characters that make you smile, cry, laugh, and say aww! – all packed into a novella. Amazing! I highly recommend SWEET COWBOY CHRISTMAS, a Sweet Texas novella by Candis Terry for every reason imaginable for reading a romance novel…it’s that good. Treat yourself to a gift of love in this delightful, heartfelt romance, which will lighten the spirit, and bring some holiday cheer into your mind and heart through Chase and Faith’s story as only Candis can manage to do. ***purchased for my own personal reading but sharing my honest and unscripted review.

This sweet novella shows how not to judge a book by its cover. I don't mean the actual book cover, lol, but I mean stereotyping a person based on what he/she is wearing. I enjoyed Chase and Faith's story more than I thought I would. I wasn't sure how a country boy turned city slicker would rediscover his love for the land when he'd been away from his roots for so long. And I also wasn't sure how Faith would overcome her past to see Chase as Chase, not as the man who'd hurt her. It took a little bit of time, some conversations, and a few kisses for these two to see how well they could be together. I liked that Ms. Terry made Chase imperfect. On the outside, he was as gorgeous as a model. Inside though, it was a different story. A health scare prompted his leaving NYC for calmer pastures, and what he found was Faith and her ranch Magic Box Guest Ranch. They tug at each others' facade until they reveal what lies beneath: hearts of gold and a love that overwhelms, and heals, them both. This is a terrific story for anyone really. It's short but it doesn't leave the reader feeling like something's missing. Well-developed characters, well-written scenes, and an even pace helped to make this book an enjoyable read for me. Ms. Terry's latest addition to her Sweet, Texas, series can be read as a standalone and will warm your heart and soul with its messages of opening your heart to love and to see the person behind the clothes. ***Received from Edelweiss via Tasty Book Tours for an honest review***

4 star I was pulled right into this short story. The story flowed well I read it in one sitting. The story has laughs, and sweet love. This is Faith and Chase’s story. After a health scare Chase comes to Faith’s Ranch as a guest. She pulls him into decorating the Ranch for Christmas not knowing that he has a horrible memory of the last Christmas that he celebrated. Can she help him make new better memories? Will he tell her why he is there and that he enjoys the ranch life way more than the city life? Can Faith make Chase believe in the magic of Christmas again? I loved these two and they were both sweet together. I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read. I recommend this book and this author.

Once again Candis Terry has written a heart warming, full of passion story. This is a novella but packed full of emotions that you will love. Chase, sexy anti Christmas has returned home to Sweet Texas for a little Rand R time to reevaluate life after a health scare. Faith, the owner of Magic Box Ranch thinks Chase is a rich playboy who wants to play cowboy for a week. Things soon change with Chase helping out at the annual Country Christmas fund raiser to help support the summer camp she provided for underprivileged children. there was a mutual attraction between these two right away, which I loved. Chase for many years has viewed Christmas as his enemy but Faith has helped him opened his eyes and heart to what Christmas should be like. This is part of a series but can be completely read as a stand alone. So, grab your cup of hot chocolate and settle down for a wonderful holiday story.

A Holiday novella in Candis Terry’s Sweet, Texas, this was a wonderful and heartwarming story in which a ‘cleaned up cowboy’ returns to his roots to ‘recharge.  At just 100 pages, this story packed plenty of punch: Chase is coming back to Sweet after a health scare: his years in the city have polished off the rough edges. Now he looks, and speaks like a successful east-coast businessman, unable to tell which end of the horse to feed.   At least that is the impression that Faith has when she first sees him. Well, after her appreciation of the stunning specimen on her doorstep.  Yes, insta-lust runs strong here – but then, we start to see the magic of Sweet working on these two… With humor and some serious sizzle, these two have you ping-ponging back and forth between laughing and squirming, the banter is fast-paced and the pheromones are wafting from the first page.   The second “Sweet Texas” novella that I have read (the first was in an anthology) I enjoyed the journey and will come back for more.   I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via Edelweiss for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

3.5/5 stars I don't normally read a lot of novellas, as they are simply too short for me, but when I saw Candis Terry was coming out with a Sweet, Texas one I knew I HAD to read it! I'm so glad I did too! I love this series SO much (it's my favorite adult romance series!) so I was excited to go back and spend some time in Sweet during the Christmas season. This novella really focuses on Faith and Chase, so we don't see TOO many of our Sweet favorites. That's okay though- the one scene we do see them (with Chase and the Wilder boys at the party) was enough for me! I really enjoyed reading Faith and Chase's story. While they might not start off on the best of terms, things quickly heat up between them in the short time Chase is staying at the ranch. Chase embodies everything Faith hates- he is a wealthy, successful businessman coming out to the ranch for some 'pampering'. However, as a favor to a friend, she agrees to let him stay. I liked Faith a lot. She doesn't put up with any bull and is really her own woman. She has been burned before by love and that is why she is so abrupt and skeptical of Chase. She sees wealthy businessmen and assumes they are just like her ex. Not too dissuaded, Chase really teaches her the meaning of not judging a book by its cover. While Chase may have been living in New York City, he is no pampered city boy who doesn't know his way around a ranch. Having grown up in Texas himself, but having left due to painful family memories, he really surprises Faith with his laid back, genuine persona. Chase is also a really great guy. Having had a bit of a health scare, his life has been totally turned upside down and it's not easy starting from scratch to find yourself and your purpose at this point in life. He likes Faith, but he is afraid to get in too deep with her because he's at such a crossroads in his life. She is such a strong personality though and he can't help but gravitate towards her and want to spend time with her. I liked their romance. It was cute and sweet and gave me plenty of feels. With the addition of the Christmas spirit, it really was a perfect read for this time of year. Lots of kissing, sexy times, sweet getting to know you moments, and a HEA... Sweet Cowboy Christmas was definitely what I needed.
