Review: An Outlaw's Christmas by Linda Lael Miller

I love the holidays and the romantic tales spun around them.  One of my favorite holiday writers is back with another McKetterick tale, An Outlaw's Christmas just in time to get us all in the Christmas spirit!

From the Publisher:

Celebrate the holidays with a brand-new McKettrick tale by beloved #1 New York Times bestselling author Linda Lael Miller
With his wild heart, Sawyer McKettrick isn’t ready to settle down on the Triple M family ranch in Arizona. So he heads to Blue River, Texas, to seek a job as marshal. But in a blinding snowstorm he’s injured—and collapses into the arms of a prim and proper lady in calico.
The shirtless, bandaged stranger recuperating in teacher Piper St. James’s room behind the schoolhouse says he’s a McKettrick, but he looks like an outlaw. As they wait out the storm, the handsome loner has Piper
remembering long-ago dreams of marriage and motherhood. But for how long is Sawyer willing to call Blue River home?
As the gray skies clear, Piper’s one holiday wish just might bring two lonely hearts together forever.

My Review:

Sawyer McKetterick is a hero in the true sense of the word and this is a truly likable holiday story that harkens back to a simpler time and a simpler life.  I have to say that this is a very 'proper' romance, so if you're looking for steamy, you'll probably not find what you want in this book, but if you're looking for a little bit of traditional, almost Victorian romance,  you'll find it within the covers of An Outlaw's Christmas!  You'll also get to see what's been going on with last year's holiday hero and heroine, Clay and Dara, from A Lawman's Christmas
