This is three cowboy Christmas romance novella. I loved two out of three of these Novellas. I love Diana Palmer's and Marina Adair's Novellas, but I really did not like Kate Pearce's Novella. Remember that with novellas the romance moves fast and sometimes leave things up in the air. I was kindly provided an e-copy of this book by the publisher (Zebra) or author (Diana Palmer, Marina Adair, and Kate Pearce) via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review about how I feel about

Christmas is my favorite time of the year and I always look forward to reading holiday romance reads. This is such a good book because we get three stories/novellas all in one. I have read all the authors involved before and I really enjoyed all the stories. They each pull at your heartstrings and make you feel the magic of Christmas with each of these romance stories.

Mistletoe Cowboy is probably my fave in this book. The characters are so different and they really challenge each other while als

Adair, Pearce and Palmer prove that love is more than a seasonal occurance. Christmas Kisses with My Cowboy plays the heart like a fiddle with stories that give emotions something to sing about. Palmer and Adair stir up trouble while finding their heart's desire.

Mistletoe Cowboy is a fascinating tale of unique characters, heartbreaking tragedies and new beginnings that come with a number of twists. (4 stars)

Mistletoe Cowboy by Diana Palmer
Unfortunately, this story wasn’t really my cup of tea. The beginning and ending both read like a laundry list of information, and the dialogue was cheesy and unnatural. I didn’t really connect with the characters, either. There were also some plot and character inconsistencies that took me out of the story several times. Overall, this story just wasn’t for me. 1/5 stars

In this book, you get three different stories with the theme being Christmas. In the first one, a widowed mom with her daughter has left the East Coast after her husband was killed while being deployed. Now taking over his family's ranch she is looking for a new start and hoping that she and her daughter can get closer as well. Does not start off good when the daughter goes missing chasing a horse and is found at a neighbor’s ranch. There she meets horse whisper, Parker. He is more than a horse ...more

I read this because I love Diana Palmer but I like finding new authors to read as well so the other two stories in this book sounded good, but all of the stories in this book were great. But I especially like Mistletoe Cowboy by Diana Palmer. Parker was hard to get to know at first but Katy and her daughter seem to bring him exactly what he needs. Parker is more than he seems because he's not just a horse wrangler, he's smart and has the schooling and military time behind him to prove it but peo ...more

Horse whisperer Parker doesn't drink, smoke, or gamble, and he doesn't have much to do with women, either. Until he meets winsome widow Katy, and her sweet child. Could Christmas kisses under the mistletoe bring the handsome wrangler the gift of his very own family?

To claim his slice of the family ranch, Texas Ranger Noah is forced back to Tucker’s Crossing. All he expects to find is a tractor load of painful memories—until

Christmas Kisses with My Cowboy

Three Christmas cowboy romance novellas with a Hallmark happily ever after for three lucky couples made this a warm feel-good read.

Marina Adair’s BLAME IT ON THE MISTLETOE had me chuckling at the quips and humorous thoughts and one of the first that happened early on was when Texas Ranger Noah Tucker saw a woman in an elf costume decorating a tree and thought, “…sexiest elf on the shelf he’d ever seen.” For some reason that tickled my fancy and I knew it might be

Always love holiday stories, especially with cowboys. I originally read this book for Ms. Pearce’s story, but enjoyed the other two as well. In Mistletoe Cowboy by Diana Palmer, we meet Parker who comes across as ‘just’ a cowboy when in fact, he is so much more. He has a reputation as being a ‘horse whisperer’ as he has a special bond with animals. But he has this sorta secret life as a government…let’s call it agent, if you will…as he is absolutely brilliant. He meets up with Katy, and her daug ...more

Christmas Kisses with My Cowboy was a light, heartfelt, enjoyable anthology of 3 holiday-themed stories. Even though all 3 were clearly part of a larger series, the only one of which I have read is Kate Pearce's Morgan Ranch series, I followed along just fine and plan to check out more of Diana Palmer and Marina Adair's backlist.

As novellas, these stories moved at a fairly quick pace but were perfect for a rainy, dreary day snuggled under a blanket on the couch with a cup of hot cocoa.

This was a cute book with three novellas by Diana Palmer, Marina Adair and Kate Pearce. It's hard to follow a romance through a novella as there really isn't enough time for trust to fully materialize. But I feel all three of these did as good a job as possible.

The first story by Diana Palmer dealt with a widowed mom and her young daughter who have moved near a bachelor native american. Their paths cross and they fall in love. Was it too soon too fast? yes, but since it was a novella, I

A trio of sweet romantic western tales by talented authors
Diana Palmer's Mistletoe Cowboy pairs Katy, a recently widowed mother of a young girl with Parker, a Native American horse wrangler. She develops her characters fully, with backgrounds that explain their action/reactions and weaves a sweet story of love at first sight, between all three.
Parker help them both with their adjustments and problems, and he just wants to be with both...always.

Oops, I did it again. So, I happen to love Kate Pearce and Marina Adair. I remembered that I didn’t have the best relationship with Diana Palmer’s books, but just couldn’t pass this compilation up when 2/3 of the stories would be by favorites of mine. After reading the first story in this book, Mistletoe Cowboy by Diana Palmer, I decided to do the same thing as last time I read a compilation in which she was involved…save the review of her story for last.

I read this anthology for Kate Pearce's Mistletoe Detour which is part of her Miller's of Morgan Valley series that I've really been enjoying. I really liked Marina Adair's Blame it on the Mistletoe part of her Sweet Plains series and will have to dig for more of that. Then there was Diana Palmer's Mistletoe Cowboy that I was just bored reading. Sorry Diana, you did not float my boat. Anthologies give you a taste of authors and their series and this one was interesting.

Who doesn't want a cowboy for Christmas?

This mixed trio of Christmas cowboy romances has something for everyone. Two of the three were absolute winners in my book, so I highly recommend this set.


Parker and Katy chart a predictable path to their HEA as he helps her daughter learn about horses while Katy gets them settled on her late husband's family ranch. There's an abundance of social commentary in this story, unencumbered by subtlety and with a clear directive

I read this book because I've been enjoying Kate Pearce's Morgan Valley stories. Also within this book is Diana Palmer's Mistletoe Cowboy, part of one of her series and a short story in Marina Adair's Sweet Plains Series. I really enjoyed Pearce's & Adair's stories. Palmer's story I found plodding and chuck full of social issues that was not my cup of tea.

Mistletoe Cowboy by Diana Palmer is about Parker, a 1/2 Crow American Indian and 1/2 Scot animal whisperer who works part time for NASA in se

Parker is a horse wrangler on a large ranch. During the summers he uses his mathematical genius to work for the government. When widow Katy and her daughter Teddie move in to the ranch next door and adopt an abused horse, Parker helps in the rehabilitation and teaching Teddie about horses.

Katy has some early history which makes it hard to connect with people, including her daughter. Parker is able to help

Mistletoe Cowboy – Diana Palmer

This is a favorite author of mine but for some reason the story fell a little flat for me. While collections like this have shorter stories and therefore a little tighter of development, this just didn’t work for me. Also there can be formatting issues in an advanced reader copy that could explain why I had to go back and read a couple of sections as I coul

Blame It On The Mistletoe by Marina Adair was Amazingly AWESOME! It is a feel good, warm your heart, perfect for Christmas-time story. Noah returns to Tucker Ranch to fulfill requirements set forth by his deceased father, only to find memories of the ranch weren’t all that bad. Noah finds it was his dad’s abusive behavior, not the ranch itself linked to his bad memories. While reconnecting with his brothers, Noah meets an “angel” by the name of Faith.

Diana Palmer brings us Parker, a cowboy who worked on a huge range in Benton, Colorado. Being part Crow often led to stereotypes from those he came in contact with who did not know that he graduated with a degree in physics, joined the military, and did government work during the summers. Parker meets Katy and her daughter Teddie when Teddie is chasing a horse galloping down the trail. We get to follow Katy and Parker as they get to know each other better.

Mistletoe Cowboy

Was not a fan of this story. I did like Teddie she was a fun character with a lot of spit fire and drive to learn as much as she can and make something of herself even at a young age. I was not a fan of Parker he came off as whoa is me I’m a victim. The author has him as this ex military guy, with smarts like no other, but he comes off as a whimp and kind of a jerk. I feel like Katy could have done way better. I was sickened by the fact that it seemed Katy could not even stand u

What a great festive collection to get readers in the spirit of the season!

Mistletoe Cowboy
This one was, unfortunately, my least favorite of the novellas in this collection. Parker, a horse whisperer, and Katy, a single mother and widow, find a connection with each other. I enjoyed reading about Parker and Katy's daughter Teddy. I liked their relationship with each other. Katy, however, just kind of rubbed me the wrong way. I just didn't connect with her.

Christmas Kisses With My Cowboy by Diana Palmer is the misleading title of this book, which is actually three books: Mistletoe Cowboy by Diana Palmer; Blame It On the Mistletoe by Marina Adair; and Mistletoe Detour by Kate Pearce. The first two are definitely cowboy romances; the third is about a mechanic but he lives in a cowboy town and all his friends are cowboys, so... These are three very cute stories with happily-ever-afters. The first is about a lonely man who meets a little girl who need ...more

One of the best reasons to read an anthology is catching up with stories from favorite series. The other is to discover a new authors who may become one you want to read full novel that they write. Christmas Kisses with My Cowboy by Diana Palmer, Marina Adair, and Kate Pearce does both of those. Kate Pearce give the reader another Morgan Valley story while Marina Adair is a new author for me to read a novella written by.

This is a sweet Christmas story by Diana Palmer.  Katy and her daughter Teddie move to Colorado following her husband's death overseas. When they stumble across an abused horse, they take it in. When it breaks through a fence, they meet Parker, a horse wrangler with a degree in physics. Parker agrees to help take care of the horse and teach Teddie how to ride.

Mistletoe Cowboy 4 stars

I really enjoyed this book a lot more than I expected. I really liked Parker's character. He was so chill. I was surprised at how Katy reacted to Ron's suggestion. She seemed like much more of a fighter than she appeared at that time. I kind of felt sorry for Katy and her inability to be close to Teddie. Also, when she had to suffer through the cold shoulder from people. Brutal.
What a lovely compilation of wonderful cowboy romances this book is! Diana Palmer, Marina Adair and Kate Pearce have all written a short story in this compilation called Christmas Kisses with my Cowboy.

Diana Palmer wrote Mistletoe Cowboy. Her leading male, Parker is one of the good guys. He is strongly principled and falling for Katy. He has agreed to help with riding lessons and has helped their rescue horse get well. Katy has never really had anyone to stand up for her, and struggled to show h
