Here comes another first for me – Alissa Callen. And she caught my interest with my first read of her WildFlower Ranch Series.

Winter and silver skies, tinsel and lights, hot chocolate and gingerbread, mistletoes and Christmas trees, second chances and love – is what “Her Mistletoe Cowboy” (Book 2), is all about. Corporate Analyst, Ivy Bishop comes away to the little town of Marietta to heal her heart and decide the next phase of her life. Falling into the magic of Christmas and she never expects to get a surprise package of love in the sexy Rhett Dixon.


Rhett Dixon happens to be her knight in shining armor, when she needed help the first time she couldn’t get into her ancestral home and lands on the threshold of Rhett Dixon. Ex- Rodeo rider Rhett has some ghosts to exorcise and a promise that needs to be fulfilled. Ivy was never a part of his plan, and yet once he sees her, all he can think is of her.

With a past connecting both Rhett and Ivy, with sparks igniting between them, and stolen kisses under the mistletoes, both get carried away to a magical land called love. Alissa Callen does such a charming job with Rhett and Ivy. Sometimes it’s so lovely to read stories with just the protagonists and a handful of supporting characters.

This is a wonderful love story of two people, believing in second chances and trusting each other to get past their insecurities and build a future. Very warm, sweet and a perfect happy read!
