Cowboys & Mistletoe – Karen Witemeyer

(POST  2 of 3  for Tuesday)

I adore Christmas. It is by far my favorite holiday of the year. Time off from work, family reunited, giving and receiving gifts (I love both!), singing carols, eating goodies, and celebrating the gift of our Savior come to earth. I do my best to stretch the festivities into a full month.

This year, I’ve combined several of those passions into a Christmas short story. This one is filled with joy, romance, and plenty of Christmas spirit.

My True Love Gave to Me

The Twelve Days of Christmas get a romantic Texas twist!

Anna King has pledged her heart to Simeon Shepherd, but her father refuses to grant her hand to the young farmer. Simeon determines to be patient and earn David King’s respect over time with hard work and evidence of his ability to provide. However, when a wealthy new suitor arrives in Bethlehem, Texas to woo Anna with her father’s support, patience is no longer an option. Simeon has twelve days before Christmas to best his rival and prove once and for all that he is Anna’s true love.

A fun, quirky read that is short enough to squeeze into even the busiest holiday schedule.

  1. I once unwrapped a toilet seat as a Christmas gift.
  2. My husband has bought me something cowboy-related every year for Christmas since I published my first western romance in 2010.
  3. The Christmas gift that made the biggest Witemeyer family splash was when I gave my high school daughter a copy of the MLA Handbook.

  1. 1, because I think that might be something you’d give to a male in the house. Of course, it could have been part of a white elephant exchange.

  2. My guess is #3 — The Christmas gift that made the biggest Witemeyer family splash was when I gave my high school daughter a copy of the MLA Handbook.

  3. I think #2 is the lie. #1 is totally believable (something my husband or children would do) and #3 is something I would do.

  4. #…2?
    This is a hard one. Lots of little details that may be false, while the overall “story” could be true 🙂
