The Billionaire Cowgirl’s Christmas (book 5)
Playing the lottery was just for fun, but with the one-billion-dollar win, life gets complicated.
It’s been nearly a year since widowed Texas rancher Ava Tomlinson won the lottery. And while her four adult sons have found love, Ava feels unsettled as the holidays approach. She’s adjusting to giving her sons more privacy and lonely due to a rift in her once tight circle of friends. Romance is the last thing on her mind when a handsome, younger survey geologist arrives on the ranch to work through the holidays. Their friendship is unexpected and delightful, but she won’t risk a broken heart by starting a romance with a man who’s hitting the road soon – even if she could trust he’s not a gold digger.
North Rabe’s career keeps him on the road. His plans of working through Christmas are derailed when Ava includes him in family dinners and holiday events in Last Stand. For the first time, he has a glimpse of a family life long missing. Ava is sweet, smart, generous and hard-working, and he’s quickly smitten. Is it finally time to put down roots? And if so, how can he prove he wants Ava’s heart, not her money?
This is a holiday book, so they eat well! At Thanksgiving, that includes “three kinds of pie and a sopapilla cheesecake.” Here H‑E‑B shares a Texas Thanksgiving Menu with a sopapilla cheesecake recipe.
“All of these books have been marvelous.”
“This book proves you’re never too old for love. This is a well written story with great characters. It is a story about family, friends and love. This book is the perfect way to end this series.”
“I’m a grandmother, or near enough with Daisy’s baby,” Ava said.
She could hardly believe it. Maybe because it had happened so quickly, her youngest falling in love with a lovely young woman who already had a baby. But she wasn’t especially young to be a grandmother. Her older boys had simply taken their time settling down.
“That’s a good thing, right?” North asked.
“Oh, of course. It’s just I’m turning sixty soon, and I don’t feel sixty.” Her face heated, but she wanted to get that out there in case he had any incorrect notions about her age.
“How old do you feel?”
She pondered the question as she watched the milk swirl in the pot, turning darker as the chocolate melted. Life had rushed by, decades gone in a blink. Inside she still felt like a young woman, even if the outside didn’t match.
“Twenty-seven?” she said. “Except at twenty-seven I had young children and I was frazzled and sleep deprived all the time. Eighteen? But I was completely different then, full of hope and nerves and dreams of starting a family. When I was fifty my husband died, and that was the worst year of my life.” She gave a reluctant laugh. “Maybe I do feel sixty, because maybe this is how sixty feels.”
“I guess all of those ages are still inside you.”
Who wouldn’t want to be a billionaire? Turns out winning the lottery causes as many problems as it solves. Get the Accidental Billionaire Cowboys sweet romance series in print or ebook.
