Christmas Stories by Kristin Holt

A Sweet Historical Western Holiday Romance Novella (Rated PG)
Holidays In Mountain Home, Book 2
Sometimes even an old-fashioned courtship needs a deadline.

Colorado 1899
Luke Finlay intends to court Effie O’Leary as soon as she puts aside her widow’s weeds. He’s in no hurry…until August Rose, a beau from her youth, steps off the train in Mountain Home wearing a federal badge.
Effie’s not sure if August–Gus–tracked her down to face criminal charges, or because he’s still sweet on her. Either way, Gus’s arrival causes her all sorts of grief. If Gus isn’t underfoot in her tailor shop, then Luke is. It seems the two men have decided she’s a prize to be won…and the escalating competition between the two leaves her torn.
She survived one disastrous marriage, so why would she accept either Gus or Luke? But these two can be most persuasive, and have a way of showing her that maybe this Christmas it’s time to open her heart to love.
MAYBE THIS CHRISTMAS is a sweet (wholesome) historical western holiday romance novella of approximately 35,000 words (130 paperback pages).


The Marshal’s Surrender

Holidays in Mountain Home, Book 3

A Sweet Historical Western Holiday Romance Novel (Rated PG) of 42,000 words.


He’ll surrender his tattered heart. And his life…

Colorado, 1900

Sheriff August (Gus) Rose is a one-woman man. Too bad the only gal he’s ever loved is married… again. Even if he were ready to court someone new—which he’s not—Noelle Finlay would be his last choice. After all, her brother stole Gus’s bride-to-be last Christmas.
The holiday season evokes unwelcome memories and he’s almost glad an unruly gang provides a distraction. But petty vandalism rapidly escalates to hanging crimes—and the marauding bandits have targeted Noelle.
With his reputation as a lawman under fire and his tattered heart tangled up in Noelle, he discovers he’s not only capable of loving her… he’ll willingly die to save her.
