Wrestlin’ Christmas with Shanna Hatfield


It’s a pleasure to be here with you today sharing a little about my sweet holiday romance Wrestlin’ Christmas the second book in the Rodeo Romance series.

Cort McGraw lives up to the cliché of tall, dark, and handsome with a head of cropped black hair, liquid silver eyes, and a dimple in his chin that draws the attention of nearly every female he passes. A world-champion steer wrestler, Cort can’t quite come to terms with a career-ending injury leaves him sidelined. Shanghaied by his sister and best friend, he ends up at a run-down ranch owned by a wary yet entirely beautiful widow.

K.C. (Kaley) Peters possess a lifetime of experience in the school of hard knocks. After the death of her husband, she gives up on the slightest possibility of ever knowing a happy future. The silence of her little boy, Jacob, echoes in her ears, reminding her of all she’s lost. Just when she’s ready to give up all hope, her neighbor sends over a friend to help her out on the ranch.

Within five minutes of meeting Cort McGraw, Kaley wants to chase him off the place. He’s much too handsome, charming, and engaging for her tattered emotions to handle. Ready to send him packing, Jacob has other ideas…


In this scene, Kaley has just met Cort at her house. She retreats to the kitchen to gather her composure while Cort takes his horses to her barn:

She took a deep breath, fighting the urge to call Tate and Kenzie Morgan and give them each a tongue-lashing.

The pastor at church put out feelers with the area ranchers to see if they might know anyone interested in temporary work. Aware her summer workers returned to college, the kind man knew she needed help. As much as she wanted to run the ranch alone, it was more than she could handle.

Tate Morgan called the previous afternoon and said he knew someone experienced willing to work for what she could pay. Unable to believe her good fortune, she expected a grizzled old ranch hand in his retirement years, not a good-looking giant of a man in his prime.

Tall and brawny, Cort McGraw happened to be one of the most handsome men she’d ever seen. From his silvery-gray eyes rimmed with black eyelashes to the dimple in his all-too-attractive chin, she wished Kenzie had given her some warning. If she’d known what he looked like, that he was so young, rugged, and hunky, she would have told Tate not to bother sending Cort to her place.

Mercy, he smelled good, too. Even now, his manly, musky fragrance filled her senses. Annoyed with herself for savoring his heady scent, she brushed at her nose, hoping to chase away the lingering aroma of his aftershave.
