Merry Christmas from your new friends in Holiday, Texas:
The most celebratory town in the South!

When Jinx Jacobs's motorcycle breaks down outside Holiday, Texas, the last thing she wants is to get stuck in the cheery little town, especially during the holidays. The whole place has gone Christmas crazy, but all she has to do is stay out from under the mistletoe—and do her best to keep that unnervingly attractive cop off her back.

Single dad and sheriff’s deputy Cash Walker doesn’t have time for romance, and yet something about the tempting loner twists his stomach up tighter than a tangle of tinsel. He may have finally found the missing piece in his life…but with Jinx so determined to avoid putting down roots, convincing her to stay may just take a Christmas miracle.

Jinx breathed in the scent of pine trees. She’d expected Texas to be full of tumbleweeds and cactus, not beautiful rows and rows of pines. She raised her gaze to enjoy the view of Cash riding a few feet in front of her. Unlike her, he was an absolute natural on a horse. He swayed back and forth in the saddle, instinctively matching the horse’s gait with the movements of his body. He must have felt her gaze on his back; he twisted in the saddle to shoot a smile her way.

Her breath hitched. She’d never been this happy before. Never thought she deserved it. He brought out feelings in her that she didn’t know she was even capable of.

“Kenzie thinks she found a tree.” He pulled up, stopping his horse until she caught up. “Do we have enough ornaments for that?”

Jinx followed the line of his arm, her gaze resting on a giant pine that towered over its neighbors. “You’ve got to be kidding. That’s got to be at least, what, twelve feet tall?”

He shrugged and climbed out of the saddle. “Let’s measure. If we put it in the front room, we’ve got the height.”

“Yeah, but how in the world are you going to get that home?” She swung her leg over the saddle, trying to find the ground. Cash slung an arm around her waist, catching her before she tumbled into a heap.

“Need a hand there?” He slid her foot out of the stirrup and set her upright, both feet finally firmly planted on the ground.

“Thanks.” The tree appeared even taller now that she wasn’t sitting six feet off the ground.

“It’s perfect!” Kenzie trotted in circles around it on the back of her pony. “It’s the most perfectest Christmas tree ever.”

“You sure you don’t want to look at one of these?” Cash gestured around them to the sea of five- to six- foot trees.


He smiled an apology at Jinx, a dad clearly wrapped around his little girl’s finger. “Let me get the saw.” He passed both sets of reins to Jinx. “Can you tie them up to a tree or something? They shouldn’t run, but they might not like the sound of the saw when I get it going.”

Jinx took the leather leads and loosely draped them around a branch of a tree. “Yeah, we’re going to need more ornaments.”

By the time Cash had sawed through the thick trunk of the tree, the sun sat directly overhead. “Y’all want to take a break for lunch before we head back?”

“Lunch?” Jinx wondered where they’d be able to grab a sandwich with nothing but trees and fields around them.

“Daddy and I packed a picnic.” Kenzie pulled something out of a pocket on the side of her saddle.

“When did you have time to do that?” She helped Kenzie spread out the blanket.

Kenzie beamed. “Are you surprised?”

“I sure am. You’re definitely making this a day to remember.”

Cash joined them on the blanket, spreading out the picnic feast. “PB&J, grapes, and Rice Krispies squares.”

“Perfect.” She meant it. The sun overhead, the man she’d been waiting for all her life next to her, and the promise of many tomorrows between them filled her heart with a joy she didn’t know she had the capacity for. “I think this is going to be my new very favorite best day.”

Kenzie giggled. “What’s a very favorite best day?”

It was a game she had played with her dad. She hadn’t thought about it in years. Hadn’t had a reason to. “Every time you have a really good day, you have to think to yourself…is this the very best day? Better than all the others? If so, then you can declare it as your new very favorite best day.”

“How many new very favorite best days can you have?” Kenzie picked a few grapes off of the bunch.

“As many as you want. But you can only have one at a time. That’s why it has to be the most very favorite best day ever.”

“And today is yours?” Cash asked.


“Well then, it’s mine too.” He leaned across the blanket and kissed her on the lips.

“I want it to be my new very favorite best day too,” Kenzie whined.

Jinx laughed. “I already called it. You two have to find your own days. This one’s mine.”

“That’s not fair.” Cash nudged Kenzie. “What do we do when someone’s not being fair?”

Kenzie didn’t say anything, just sat there like she was thinking too hard. “We tell a grown- up?”

Jinx laughed again while Cash shook his head. “Not that kind of not fair. Jinx isn’t being fair because she won’t share her day. What do you say we tickle her?”

Kenzie’s eyes lit up, and she attacked, her fingers ready to deliver some serious tickles. Jinx tumbled over to the blanket, laughing so hard she snorted. This was the first. The first of her new very favorite best days. Her decision to stay with Cash and Kenzie meant she had an unlimited number ahead of her.
