Romance is all about giving, sharing, and loving, as exemplified by the books featured this month. In these stories, the characters learn the truth of the old adage Home is where the heart is.


Forever Home

In The Texan’s Unexpected Holiday, Lexy Zapata is asking herself if she has found a temporary shelter or a forever home in the coastal ranchland of Texas.


Driven to get her sister and baby niece out of a dangerous situation, Lexy brings them with her to her new job near Damian De La Rosa's family ranch. Now they can stay hidden through the holidays while Lexy plans their next move. But when she starts to fall for Damian, can his ranch become her family's safe haven for good?


This sweet, heartwarming romance is the fourth book in the Cowboys of Diamondback Ranch series.


Jolene Navarro, a seventh-generation Texan, knows that as much as the world changes, people stay the same: good and evil, vow-keepers and heartbreakers. Over thirty years ago Jolene married a vow-keeper who shows her that dancing in the rain never gets old. Her life, much like her stories, is filled with faith, family, laughter, dirty dishes, and all of life's wonderful messiness. When she’s not spending time with her four grown kids or creating stories, Jolene is teaching high-school art in San Antonio.


Home For Good

Rancher Caleb Sutton has had his fill of the nomadic lifestyle of his childhood and is happy putting down roots in Kringle, Texas.


In sharp contrast, his globetrotting, freelance-photographer ex-fiancée Ava Miller just blew back into town and can’t wait to leave again after the holidays. She’s only there to help her parents with their animal rescue. Nothing exciting ever happens in staid old Kringle, Texas—or so she thought, until a special night with Caleb presents Ava with A Perfect Christmas Surprise.


This wholesome second-chance romance is the third book in the Kringle, Texas series.
