Previously released as part of the Stranded with a Hero anthology. Now available individually! 

The power might be out…but the heat is on.

Every year, free-spirited Frankie Sylva banishes her holiday loneliness with good deeds. This time, she’s rescuing a truckload of neglected reindeer—until a blizzard sidetracks her scheme, and now she’s stuck…literally.

Local sheriff Red LeClair is shocked to find a very cute, half-frozen woman trespassing on Three River Ranch in a ditched rig, with a suspiciously empty trailer. Is she a horse thief? Is she on the run? Is she out of her mind? He has no choice but to take her back to the ranch and keep an eye on her.

But when the power goes out, Red and Frankie are forced to depend on each other in a way that both have avoided for years. The sheriff’s quiet holiday is suddenly festive: a crackling fire, candles, carols, and an irresistible stranger…who might be a felon.

My Opinion  3 STARS
**Copy Provided by Netgalley and Entangled Publishing, LLC for an honest review**

This is a fun, sweet and flirty holiday romance that you can't help but breeze through the pages.

Frankie is a very loveable character who is just trying to save some animals from cruelty when she gets stuck in the snow.  She is a drifting teacher who has a love of animals and has no-one close to call a friend or a family member to be with for the Christmas holidays.

Sherriff Red LeClair is a lonely divorcee who is spending his first Christmas alone and has agreed to look after the Three River Ranch whilst the owners are on holiday.  He is doing the chores when he comes upon a very suspicious looking Frankie.  It doesn't help that she is dressed as an Elf.

Forced together with worsening weather, both stay at the ranch and look after the animals and keep each other company.

They kind good company, lust, attraction and good humour with the other, not only some interesting lyrics to well known characters that pop out.

A short visit to the Three Rivers Ranch, but well worth the light-hearted read.
