A Lawman's Christmas by Linda lael Miller

It's been awhile since I have read a book by Linda Lael Miller, makes me want to dig out my other books by her and reread them. Definately read more books of hers.
Clay McKettricks want to start his own ranch so he moved away from his family to texas. Clay plans to mark time over winter as a new sherriff in town. Thier is a small house that comes with the sherriff job, but the last sherriff widow and two daughters still live thier. Soon as Clay gets his horse of the train Edrina comes up to hold his reins so he can help the train conducter shut the car up. Edrina is up on the horse bareback when Clay turns around. I love Edrina she is smart,nice and funny at age 7. She tells Clay that now he is thier they will have to go to poor house.
Clay tells Dara Rose for now he will bunk at jail. The mayor tells her she needs to be out after Christmas if the new sherriff does not want it the town will sell the house.
Dara Rose does not know where to turn. Her choices are to be a ranch housekeeper and cook than after a year the ranger might marry her, but girls are not welcome. The other choice is work at brothel and girls cant live her. Thier is no way she is leaving her girls.
When Clay hears what the Mayor says he proposes marriage to Dara Rose right now it will be in name only and hope that one day will be a real mariage.
I like this good christmas story. I was given this ebook in exchange for honest review.
