Sleigh Bells Ring in Romance
Rancher Jess Milne lost his wife years ago, but he’s finally ready to give love a second chance. It’s a shame the one woman in Romance who captures his interest is a prickly, wasp-tongued she-devil. She used to be one of his closest friends until he asked her out. Her v...more
Jess and Doris were a breath of fresh air with their continuous banter.
I loved the extent Jess embarked in getting Doris to realize they were meant for one another and still young enough to love.
Blayne and Brooke were great in helping this romance bud.
Who knew pink underwear and socks might be j ...more

Enjoyed this sweet story of two best friends, who have lost their spouses years ago and are now denying their feelings for each other. Loved the characters, the romance and the humor written in this book. I love that the author was able to write how true the feelings are, of the guilt of falling in love with another. I especially loved the little piglet, Pigtails. Will be following the series. JudyE

They've been neighbors and friends for decades. He's a widower, and she's widowed. He's ready to find love again, and thinks he has with Doris, but ...more

Another fun Christmas novella by Shanna Hatfield!
I really enjoy stories where the hero is completely in love with the heroine and not afraid to let her know. And handsome Jess was in love with Doris. The fact that their families had been close made this even sweeter, in my opinion.
It was clever and fun the way the author carried on the pig theme from her previous book set in Romance. Doris’ grandson, Blayne, and his new wife, Brooke, sti ...more
I’ve said it again and again, I haven’t read a book by Shanna Hatfield that I haven’t loved. Her new release “Sleigh Bells Ring in Romance” did not disappoint. This book releases on November 1, 2018 and can be pre-ordered here on Amazon
I love romance, yet often in fiction books the characters are young. Shanna introduces “love at any age” is beautiful. This book is just that kind of story. You’ll met Jess, who is persistent in his pursuit and Doris, who refuses to even think about ...more
This book contains a lot of humour, Doris and Jess throw barbed comments at each other, that could offend if they weren't really old friends! This book is the start of a new series set in the town of Romance, and features couples from the former series set in this town, but in no way does this affect the enjoyment of the story if you have not read these b ...more

Wow! This was a great story! So great I got nothing else done today as I couldn't put it down lol
Jess...I can picture him almost as a Sam Elliot type of guy! Still a hunk even in his 70's. Doris reminds me of Shirley McClain...spunky, snarky and a little bit of a firecracker lol
I can understand Doris' reluctance at wanting to pursue a relationship with him. She felt she was betraying her deceased husband, Glen's memory. Thanks to the help of her grandson Blayne and his wife, th ...more

Great job Shanna Hatfield.
In addition to blogging and eating too much chocolate, she is completely smitten with her husband, lovingly known as Captain Cavedweller.
Shanna creates character-driven romances with realistic heroes and heroines. Her histor ...more
