Christmas at Copper Mountain

Montana Born: Tule Pub. (Copper Mountain Christmas). Dec. 2013. 88p. ebk. ISBN 9781940296074. $2.99. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
Harley Diekerhoff couldn't have been more pleased when the agency placed her as housekeeper for the Brock Sheenan ranch in Marietta, MT. Leaving behind all her misery in California, Harley finds this temporary position working for a brusque widower offers no emotions and no holiday celebration, which is exactly what she wants. Harley is managing just fine until Brock's two children escape from their New York boarding school and arrive at the ranch's front door. Children are the last thing her broken heart can handle, so she plans to leave Marietta as soon as possible, but Brock, the kids, and the ranch hands need her more than she realizes. The growing physical attraction between Harley and Brock is enough to melt his tough exterior. Harley just needs to move beyond her sadness and accept the love that will be the greatest Christmas gift of her life.
VERDICT Prolific modern lit and romance author Porter (Flirting with Forty; Take Me, Cowboy) unites with a band of romance authors to form Montana Born Books, an imprint of Tule, which features novellas that take place in the fictional town of Marietta, MT. This latest "Copper Mountain Christmas" offering (e.g., Katherine Garbera's A Cowboy for Christmas; Melissa McClone's Home for Christmas) is a feel-good shortie, perfect for the season, that provides a bit more grit than your stock holiday romance.
