Can a Christmas crush and their mutual love of rescuing dogs bring them back together?
Russ Johnson has the degree and the experience to run a ranch successfully. Not that it really matters if he doesn’t, because this cowboy billionaire’s bank account can take a hit. Too bad his heart can’t.
When his ex-girlfriend, Janelle Stokes, shows up at Chestnut Ranch with another dog that needs rescuing, they start seeing each other again. She was worried about how her two girls would do with Russ in their lives, so she broke up with him, her lawyerly mind taking the reins from her heart.
But as they work together to expand the dog rescue facilities at the ranch, Russ involves Janelle’s kids in such a seamless way that she thinks she might just give him her whole heart for Christmas.
Except her ex-husband is back in Chestnut Springs for the holidays, and everything gets complicated when he says he wants to try to rebuild the family Janelle once had with him and their children.
Will Russ’s Christmas crush have to stay that way? Or will he and Janelle get their second chance and find a way to build a new brand of family?
