The power might be out…but the heat is on.

Every year, free-spirited Frankie Sylva banishes her holiday loneliness with good deeds. This time, she’s rescuing a truckload of neglected reindeer—until a blizzard sidetracks her scheme, and now she’s stuck…literally.

Local sheriff Red LeClair is shocked to find a very cute, half-frozen woman trespassing on Three River Ranch in a ditched rig, with a suspiciously empty trailer. Is she a horse thief? Is she on the run? Is she out of her mind? He has no choice but to take her back to the ranch and keep an eye on her.

But when the power goes out, Red and Frankie are forced to depend on each other in a way that both have avoided for years. The sheriff’s quiet holiday is suddenly festive: a crackling fire, candles, carols, and an irresistible stranger…who might be a felon.

Isn’t the cover just the cutest ever??

If you are looking for a cute, short, Christmas story this is it. If you like humor, you got that too! If you like insecurities, getting rid of bitterness, Les Mes, costumes, trying to do the right thing, red caribous that might make you think of Rudolph the red nosed reindeer, singing and making up words to songs, having a cause, meddling housekeepers and neighbors that crack you up, or if you need a little pick me up of holiday happiness, and of course finding a little romance then this is for you.

I was cracking up through this book. Frankie is on a mission to save the “reindeer” that was heading for the meat locker. So she heads off with a “borrowed” vehicle to take them to Three River Ranch where the “reindeer will be safe”. It’s just that Frankie gets stuck and the Sheriff comes in and saves the day.

Sheriff Red is a quiet, sad and maybe a little bitter after his divorce. He is caught between enforcing the law and seeing what really is going on. He finds himself intrigued with the quirky Frankie. He finds himself singing again too because Frankie brings out the best of him.

They are stuck in a snowstorm and find that they aren’t alone anymore. And maybe even find that this is more than just being together to wait out the storm and be on their own ways. So what are you waiting for? Go buy the book. This book makes you warm and fuzzy inside and smile and laugh!

“She tossed a handful of snow at his face, then shrieked as the wind whipped it back into her own.
Red hooted. "Karma's a boomerang, sweetheart. Don't forget it.”

Before she was a novelist, Roxanne was an aerobics instructor (fired for insufficient coordination), a cosmetics salesperson (lacked that go-for-the-throat sales attitude), a dog-trainer (they all died*), a tax consultant with H&R Block (yeah, that was before Quicken and TurboTax), taught dog and cat breed names (she's a font of useless information) and most recently, wrote content for an interactive romance/mystery video game (still can't master Windows 8.)

Now she explores all kinds of careers from the safety of her desk, through her characters. It's better for everyone that way.

*It was 15 years ago, people! It's not like they died because of her!
