A Cold Creek Christmas Collection
Enjoy these three heartwarming Cowboys of Cold Creek holiday romances by New York Times bestselling author RaeAnne Thayne, together for the first time! A Cold Creek Christmas Surprise Hardened rancher Ridge Bowman has long told himself he has no need for love—just work and his little girl are enough to get him through. But when his “cleaning lady,” Sarah Whitmore, gets injured on his staircase, well, of course he has to invite her to spend the holidays with him. It’s only the responsible thing to do. Only, Sarah isn’t really there to work on his house. She came bearing precious artwork belonging to Ridge’s late mother, and possibly a secret that could devastate them both. But as Christmas draws closer, so does Ridge—and Sarah convinces herself that she will tell him what she knows as soon as the holiday is over. She might be the key to his past—if only he could be a part of her future…. The Christmas Ranch Hope Nichols has never felt as if she belonged anywhere, except her hometown of Pine Gulch.
