HE’S THE ONE YOU’VE BEEN WAITING FOR!
In the heart of the Rockies
One white Christmas can change everything.
When firefighter and single dad Steve Springfield moved his four kids to a Colorado Christmas tree ranch, he intended for it to be a safe haven. But he never expected danger to follow them to his childhood home…
Or that he would come face-to-face with the one girl he could never forget.
Folk artist Camille Brandt lives a quiet life. As the town’s resident eccentric, she’s used to being lonely—until Steve freaking Springfield changes everything. Brave and kind, he’s always had a piece of her heart, and it doesn’t take long before she’s in danger of falling for him again. But as mysterious fires break out across the sleepy Colorado town, Steve and Camille will have to fight if they want their happy family to survive until Christmas…

About the Author
A graduate of the Police Academy, Katie received her ice-rescue certification and can attest that the reservoirs in the Colorado mountains really are that cold. A fan of anything that makes her feel like a bad-ass, she has trained in Krav Maga, boxing and gymnastics has lived in an off-grid, solar- and wind-powered house in the Rocky Mountains; rides horses; trains dogs; cross-country skis; and travels to warm places to scuba dive. In addition to her romantic suspense books, she also writes spicier romances under the pen name Katie Allen. Connect with Katie at:
I’m already a fan of Katie Ruggle’s romance writing, and Rocky Mountain Cowboy Christmas is exactly on par for what I’ve come to expect from her contemporary romantic suspense.
Camille Brandt takes the definition of Town Eccentric to its fullest potential. She’s a loner and lonely, being around people makes her anxious. When Steve Springfield returns to town, she’s in danger of losing her heart to him, all over again, as mysterious fires start breaking out around town.
Firefighter and single dad Steve moved his children home to his family’s Christmas tree farm, hoping to find healing and safety after all they’ve lost. When he comes face-to-face with a woman he’s never been able to forget? And she’s in danger?
All bets are off.
Rocky Mountain Cowboy Christmas is a steamy little romance with adorable secondary characters (Steve’s kids are a hoot!), and unforgettable main characters. The mystery will keep you guessing right up until the reveal, with plot twists and little curveballs.
