Their Texas Christmas Gift

Dear Reader,

There are times when it is easy to know what to do. Others, when trying to figure out what is right, is a lot more elusive.

This is the situation that Faith Lockhart Hewitt and Lt. Zach Callahan find themselves in. Faith has been fostering five-month-old Quinn ever since his birth mother died. She is days away from adopting him when Zach Callahan arrives. The Navy SEAL has just discovered he has a baby boy, and he very much wants to be part of Quinn’s life. But there is a hitch. He is still active-duty military and will not be there to care for his son. The only fair thing to do…the only right thing… is to let Faith help him raise Quinn.

Unfortunately, their plan is not as easy to implement as they hope. Before they know it, they are married. That, too, seems simple enough. They won’t be together more than a few weeks or months a year. So it ought to be easy to just be co-parents, and friends, and leave it at that, right….? 😊

I hope you enjoy this Christmas story as much as I enjoyed writing it. Happy holidays to everyone!

Best wishes,
Cathy Gillen Thacker

Their Texas Triplets

Dear Reader,

Families. Both a blessing. And a burden. When we need them and they are there for us, helping and supporting, we are incredibly grateful. But when they don’t agree with what we’re trying to do….it is way too easy to become irritated.

No one knows this better than cowboy/rancher Cooper Maitland. He loves his little sister dearly and was even her guardian for a time. But he’s never agreed with any of her plans. And he really doesn’t like it when she leaves her one year old triplets in his care—without even asking first! After all, what does he know about babies?

Luckily, his next door neighbor and former nemesis, Jillian Lockhart, knows a lot about little ones. She is much more understanding about what his sister has done. Plus, she doesn’t mind doing the neighborly thing and helping out with the kids. Even going so far as offering her home for them to stay in.

Cooper is grateful for Jillian’s help. He really comes to depend on her friendship. But when their attraction for each other flames wildly out of control, things start to get really complicated. Was it love drawing them together, or merely the false intimacy that comes from weathering any sort of trauma or hardship together? Only time, and their hearts, will tell.

I hope you enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoyed writing it!

Best wishes,
Cathy Gillen Thacker

The Twin Proposal

Dear Reader,

I always welcome an opportunity. You never know what will come of it.

Mackenzie Lockhart feels the same way. Orphaned at age 10, she suffered through a time in which she did not have any choices. She was separated from her seven brothers and sisters, living in foster care. Luckily, Griff Montgomery, then 14, was also in the system. Declaring himself her unofficial big brother, he showed her how to protect herself emotionally from hurt, (by shutting down when necessary). How to forge a Can Do attitude (that would enable her to build an independent life, that no one else could take away).

Thanks to that, Mackenzie is able to build the business and self-reliant life of her dreams. Griff is still working toward his goals. To fully achieve them, she realizes he needs her help. So, she makes an impetuous proposal that shocks them both.

Quickly, he agrees, and they begin a journey together that takes them far beyond their wildest expectations.

I hope you enjoy reading this third installment in my 8 book miniseries, LOCKHARTS LOST AND FOUND, every bit as much as I enjoyed writing it!

Best wishes,
Cathy Gillen Thacker
