An Old-Fashioned Texas Christmas

In this 2-in-1 novella collection, the Archer brothers return for An Archer Family Christmas. It’s Christmas Eve, 1893, and the entire family has gathered to celebrate the holiday. While the men are off chopping down the perfect Christmas tree, an unexpected request for help leaves Cassandra Archer directly in the path of a dangerous outlaw. Desperate to protect the woman he loves, Jim Archer races to the rescue, only to find that Cassie’s life is not the only one in peril. It will take a Christmas miracle—and the entire Archer clan—to keep a second Archer Christmas from ending in disaster.

Also included is Gift of the Heart. A widow and her young daughter move to Hope Springs for a fresh start, but with no money to secure a home, Ruth must convince a wealthy resort owner to accept her heirloom brooch as collateral. Will the pin that brought love to three generations soften the heart of a wounded recluse and give Ruth a second chance at love as the holidays draw near?

When weary travelers stumble upon a quaint mountain town at the base of Mount Hood, a twinkling star beckons them to an iconic inn run by a possibly elf-affiliated woman named “Angel Rafferty”… and what Angel brings to this trio of beautiful holiday romances is the joy and wisdom of a self-assured and faithful woman. The kind that sticks to her guns and says what’s on her mind… or knows when to let silence do the talking. Join me, Margaret Brownley and Mary Connealy in this wonderful trio of Christmas romance, available in Kindle or paperback… and get lost in a snow-filled, faith-filled Christmas where love abides in the shadow of a magnificent mountain.

Simon’s take-each-day-as-it-comes outlook quickly clashes with the reserved widow’s need for order, but his openness slowly melts her stern façade. 


He and the kids have upended her orderly life.  Will they do the same to her guarded heart?
