Christmas at Copper Mountain by Jane Porter

Harley Diekerhoff couldn’t have been more pleased when the agency places her as the housekeeper for the Brock Sheenan ranch in Marietta, Montana. Leaving behind all her misery in California, this temporary position working for a brusque widower offers no emotions and no holiday celebration, which 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 on leaving Marietta as soon as possible, but Brock, the kids and the ranch hands need her more than she realizes. The growing physical attraction is enough to melt Brock’s tough exterior. Harley just needs to move beyond her sadness and accept the love that will be the greatest Christmas gift of her life.

Prolific modern lit and romance author Porter (Flirting with Forty; Take Me, Cowboy) unites with a band of romance authors to form Mountain Born Books, an imprint of Tule, which features novellas that take place in the fictional town of Marietta, Montana. This fourth Copper Mountain offering is a feel good shortie perfect for the season that provides a bit more grit than your stock holiday romance.
