Synopsis from Goodreads:

Billionaire Ryder Blackwell has got it all under control. The wealthiest cattle baron this side of the Mississippi, he’s built an empire for himself in hopes of getting distance from a tortured past. But when a stunningly sexy—and strong-willed—new vet comes to town just in time for Christmas, Ryder knows he’s met the one spirit he just can’t tame…Lara Montgomery doesn’t want to be involved with any man, least of all the rich, infuriating, and unbearably sexy Ryder Blackwell. She vows never to tangle with the charming rancher, but when he offers her the ultimate deal—one weekend at his ranch in exchange for a near-priceless horse—Lara cannot refuse. And as the nights get colder and their attraction gets hotter, Lara’s about to get all she’s ever wanted for Christmas…

My Review:

This novella will definitely get your adrenaline pumping. Baxter tells an inviting and exciting tale that I easily read in a single sitting. Baxter’s writing is very smooth and her descriptions paint a brilliant picture of the ranch. I was amazed at how in-depth the story was considering the short page length. I also appreciated the accuracy in the equine and cattle details in the novel. The author really knew what she was talking about, which was refreshing.

I thoroughly enjoyed the characters that we came to know throughout this novella. Baxter doesn’t simply develop them in the present, but lets us in on their personal and family histories as well. I really felt like I had met these two. I loved that the characters knew each other before the story began, and that they had a connection that came with them into the tale. It made the entire story so much more believable.

As a whole, this was a quick, racy, exciting story that draws at both your emotions and your wildest imagination. It was a great read.
