He’s a former rodeo star who gave up his career to run the family ranch.
She’s an aspiring chef with a food truck, a dream, and no interest in another man coming along to ruin her plans.
Troy Lucas walked away from his winning rodeo career to run the family ranch after the death of his grandfather. Now, being a rancher, a farrier, and even team roping just for fun can’t seem to keep him satisfied. He didn’t think he’d miss his glory days in the rodeo when he came back home – in fact, there’s nowhere else he’d rather be. Still, he can’t deny the hole inside that keeps reminding him he’s longing for something . . . more.
Chef Lark Gibson has only one thing on her mind: opening a restaurant in Portland. Until that day comes, Lark will take her food truck to as many events as possible and make sure her customers are always begging for more. The last thing she expected was to find herself distracted by a knight in dusty Wranglers, until a handsome cowboy comes to her rescue and catches her off-guard.
Will the approaching Christmas season lead this hungry cowboy and ambitious chef to realize that what they think they want isn’t what they really need? Find out in Savoring Christmas, a sweet romance full of humor, heart, and holiday fun.

With her sweet, soft lips brushing his, Troy wanted nothing more than to sweep her into his arms and forget about everything. He could easily pretend there was no rodeo, ranch, food truck, or horses that needed new nails in their shoes. All he wanted at that moment was to hold Lark and get lost in a mind-blowing kiss.
Instead of surrendering to his desires, he kept his hands at his sides and wished he didn’t feel such a strong responsibility to so many other people.
“Think of that as a little wish for luck,” she whispered, stepped back, and smiled at him before she hurried off toward the stands.
“Do you need an instruction manual, like a detailed step-by-step guideline with pictures of what to do when a beautiful woman kisses you?” Truitt asked as he stepped out of the shadows of the trailer and thumped Troy on the back. “I bet I could create one so basic even you wouldn’t misunderstand what to do with a gorgeous girl when she is clearly into you.”
Troy had to draw in three deep breaths and count to ten to keep from letting his fist fly and lodge itself in Truitt’s nose. A nose that did not seem capable of minding its own business.
