The cowboy and the baby
When Rafferty Evans goes out in the pouring November rain to help a lost tourist find his way off his land, the rancher doesn't expect to return with an expectant mom. Jacey Lambert isn't just pregnant—she's about to give birth.
Five hungry cowboys looking for a home-cooked meal aren't what Jacey imagined when she set out for the Texas Hill Country. Neither is having her baby delivered by Rafferty, a handsome widower who offered her shelter from the storm.
With an alluring cook in the kitchen and an irresistible infant in the bunkhouse, it's beginning to feel more like Christmas at the ranch. But mother and daughter have to move on eventually, and when—if—they do, Rafferty knows his fragile heart will break all over again. Unless Rafferty can convince Jacey there's only one thing her new family is lacking—him!
