Love by the Reins: Christian Contemporary Romantic Novella

GIVEAWAY

NOLAN, CATE
LOVE BY THE REINS : CHRISTIAN CONTEMPORARY ROMANTIC NOVELLA

When David Marlow hires Willa James to give his daughter riding lessons, he's secretly hoping she can work magic. Since her mother's death, Hailey has become a tiny terror, caring about no one and nothing but winning gold medals.

Ten years ago, Willa lost everything when a riding accident stole her chances of Olympic gold. In one night she lost her boyfriend, her riding dreams, and any chance of ever having a family of her own. When she takes on the challenge of training David's daughter, she has to confront her memories and learn to open herself up to life and love again.

Can one not-so-angelic little girl bring a Christmas miracle and a second chance at love for David and Willa?

My Review:

A Christmas novella worth swooning over! I don't know how Nolan packed all the emotional satisfaction of a full length romance into this sweet novella, but I'm glad she did. My little girl heart pitter-pattered over the horse stable setting. Kind of like The Saddle Club for adults. :-) This intense second-chance love story sure packs a wallop. I felt every angst-riddled moment right along with David and Willa. And the not-so-angelic Hailey kept me laughing and wincing.  The perfect holiday read to help you countdown to Christmas.

  4. I'm not entering, Kav, b/c I already got this one. I'm curious, though, Did you read this, b/c of your positive review of her LI book, Christmas in Hiding? Your review is the only reason I had an urge to read the relatively unknown author's book. I'm sure looking forward to her next full length book.

    1. Yes -- I chose to read this novella because I loved Cate's debut LIS book. Hoping she has another one coming out soon. As you probably know, I don't read many ebooks. Pretty much stick to paperback books. I make a few exceptions -- usually authors connected with Seekerville. But when I saw on Facebook that Cate Nolan had a Christmas novella just released, and it was set in the world of horse, well, I just had to give it a try.
