Close to Perfect: A Montana Men Novella by Jennifer Ryan

Snowed in at Copper Ridge: A Copper Ridge Novella by Maisey Yates

Mia Landry has always had it bad for brooding cowboy Devlin Grayson. Too bad he’s her best friend’s older brother. But when they find themselves snowed in at Copper Ridge Lodge, Mia finally has the chance to tell the man of her dreams exactly what she wants… him.

Hot Winter’s Night: A Brightwater Novella by Lia Riley

While Brightwater is being covered in snow, Goldie Flint is stuck in her flower shop. She never expected her hero to be Kit Kane, the former love of her life. Kit knows that what he had with Goldie isn’t just in the past and with the help of a little bet, an ornery grandmother, and a lot of snow, he’s ready to show her that what he really wants for Christmas is a second chance.

What's not to love? It's the most magical time of the year and also happens to be my most favourite holiday. I love any story that is centred on Christmas; it’s a time for family and friends to get together.      
This anthology holds three stories, each written by a different author with a different theme, all cantered around the magic of Christmas. All three of these authors were new to me any I really enjoyed their stories.
Close to Perfect: A Montana Men Novella by Jennifer Ryan
This is a second chance at love story. Ripped apart by circumstances beyond their control Dex Manning and Abigail Swain have always wondered “what if”? Abigail went against her strict parents and helped Dex when he needed it the most, for that she was banished from her family and friends. Dex, determined that her sacrifice not be in vain was determined to make a name for himself and give back to the community.
Fast forward ten years and Abigail is finally free to return home, bringing with her a surprise which will rock the foundation of Dex’s life. Finally re united, will they be able to build a future together or will the anger and pain of the past get in the way?
 Snowed in at Copper Ridge: A Copper Ridge Novella by Maisey Yates
What’s not to love about a Cowboy? Mia Landry has been fixated on Devlin Grayson for a very long time, only problem is that he is her best friend’s older brother. When they are snowed in Mia seizes the opportunity to put her feelings for Dev out there, what’s she have to lose?
I loved the vulnerability that Dev showed, although thought of as a player, he is in cares deeply for the innocent Mia but does not want to act on his feelings. 
Initially scared to pursue Dev, Mia soon finds herself out of her comfort zone and going after what she wants. 
Hot Winter’s Night: A Brightwater Novella by Lia Riley
A second chance at love story which I really enjoyed. Kit Kane was the love of Goldie Flint’s life but circumstances separated them. When she is stuck in her flower shop due to heavy snow, it is Kit who comes to her rescue.
This book was filled with humour and was well written. When Kit returns to town, Goldie is unhappy, after all he left her to join the military when she was going through a particularly difficult time in her life and she has never forgiven him.
Goldie is a feisty character that I am sure I could and would be friends with, she refused to lay down for Kit and that was great. Kit and Goldie were meant to be and it was intriguing to watch these two finally come back together. 
I enjoyed all three of these stories and will be checking out other books written by the authors. 
I received a copy of this book through the publisher and Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. 

Jennifer Ryan is the New York Times & USA Today bestselling author of The Hunted Series and The McBrides Series. She writes romantic suspense and contemporary small-town romances featuring strong men and equally resilient women. Her stories are filled with love, family, friendship, and the happily-ever-after we all hope to find.

Jennifer lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband and three children. When she isn’t writing a book, she’s reading one. Her obsession with both is often revealed in the state of her home and in how late dinner is to the table. When she finally leaves those fictional worlds, you’ll find her in the garden, playing in the dirt and daydreaming about people who live only in her head, until she puts them on paper.

After studying at the University of Montana-Missoula, LIA RILEY scoured the world armed only with a backpack, overconfidence and a terrible sense of direction. She counts shooting vodka with a Ukranian mechanic in Antarctica, sipping yerba mate with gauchos in Chile and swilling fourex with stationhands in Outback Australia among her accomplishments.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author MAISEY YATES lives in rural Oregon with her three children and her husband, whose chiseled jaw and arresting features continue to make her swoon. She feels the epic trek she takes several times a day from her office to her coffee maker is a true example of her pioneer spirit. Maisey divides her writing time between dark, passionate category romances set just about everywhere on earth and light sexy contemporary romances set practically in her back yard. She believes that she clearly has the best job in the world.
