She’s all he wants for Christmas.
Stranded in the middle of the road in big sky country, Wyoming, at eight months pregnant isn’t exactly what Sofie Pennington had planned when she decided to pack up and surprise her sister. Fly Creek is a fresh start for her, one where she’s finally free from her controlling ex and can figure out this whole single parent thing. First, though, she needs to get there. To her shock, her rescuer comes in the form of a frustratingly handsome cowboy.
Dan Rigby is on his way out of town—for good—when he stumbles across a very pregnant Sofie. She’s the most obstinate, exasperating woman he’s ever met…and the most appealing. She drives him crazy, in more ways than one. When her sister suddenly has to leave, and Dan becomes Sofie’s welcoming committee, they find themselves growing closer despite their desire for conflicting things. Can Dan convince Sofie that Christmas miracles do happen?

Occupation: Rancher who helps run Sky Lake Dude Ranch
3 likes in no particular order: Sofie Pennington. Playing my guitar. Laney Bowler’s tarts (any flavor)
3 dislikes in no particular order: Men who mistreat women. Being taken advantage of. Pineapple.
Drink of choice: This time of year, it’s my homemade hot chocolate, especially if Sofie is drinking with me.
Favorite food: Normally it’s anything made by the ranch’s cook, Laney, but now it’s sugar cookies made by Sofie. They melt in your mouth (and she melts my heart.)
Favorite (Christmas) song: Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. Who doesn’t love Judy Garland, and I happen to know Sofie adores the song. Maybe I should sing it to her?
Choice of transportation: Horse, although horse drawn sleigh has some definite perks if Sofie is snuggled up beside me.
Favorite way to spend an evening: Sitting with Sofie in front of the fire while she reads to her unborn child.
Best memory to date: Finding a fired-up Sofie on a cow-covered Fly Creek road, in the middle of the night. Who wouldn’t fall for an angel who thinks a simple cowboy can make a herd of cows move?
If you could have a do over, what would you do differently? I wouldn’t have tried to kiss Peyton a few months ago. She was always meant for Ryder, and well me, I think I was meant for Sofie.
Is it possible to survive tragedy and find happiness again? Absolutely! Just look at Emily and Adam Conley. Their love story is one for the ages.
Most romantic gesture: Playing a song in front of the whole town to let Sofie know how I feel about her.
Words to live by: “There’s only one thing more precious than our time and that’s who we spend it on.” ~Leo Christopher
