Vittorio Medina is 16 years old when he leaves the Taylor farm where he grew up and where his mother works as a cook. He takes a job at the neighboring Crawford-Devlin ranch to keep away from temptation in the form of 12-year-old Nora, daughter of David and Jessie Taylor. Vito returns to the Taylor farm on Christmas Day and sparks fly. When Nora's heart is broken, her mother gives her the perfect gift in the form of a glimpse into her future. Will Jessie's revelation lead to happiness or put everyone in danger? We'll have to wait and see.
Nora comes from a special family. Her mother can "see" things before they happen and her Uncle Tye is "sensitive" to what other people are feeling. These characters, along with Nora's extended family, have previously featured in the author's "Texas Devlins" series. While some details seem irrelevant to this story, I'm sure fans of the "Texas Devlins" series will be glad to catch up with some old friends.
This novella gives us a lovely insight into how Christmas Day was celebrated in 1885, especially with respect to the types of presents the children received, and in relation to the specific roles of the men and women. I was pleased to see the author not only concentrate on the developing romance between Nora and Vittorio, but to also portray the loving relationship of the older married couple, David and Jessie Taylor.
This is a nice introduction to the upcoming romance novel featuring Nora and Vittorio as adults. A glossary of the Spanish terms used would be helpful.
I received this book in return for an honest review.

Since the books are sold separately, I leave this review on the book as a whole and not on any individual story within. Try it and discover some amazing new authors while at the same time enjoying the tales of familiar ones.
If you are looking for westerns, with strong heroes and heroines tough enough to hold their own, along with a Christmas story, I recommend Silver Belles and Stetsons.
Review for The Drifter's Proposal-- I love books like this. I became so invested in the characters that they're like people you'd want to be friends with! I smiled, I laughed, and at one point I teared up. Adaline is in so much trouble when the story begins, and Malloy--with his long time crush on her--is more than willing to step in and help. But she's not the only one who needs saving! This is a well written story that drew me in with its charm. I'd recommend this book to anyone.

The story lines were almost duplicates. Found myself skimming to get through the book, thinking the next one would be different. Not horrible reads, just dull.Published 17 days ago by Tall Lady NC

Great set of stories. I was sorry to be at the end of them. I have checked on the writers and ordered other books by them.Published 2 months ago by Patsy Mouller
The writing seemed stilted and uncomfortable, which made believability difficult for me. The conversations seemed forced, the story lines a little too short. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Kindle Customer
These were some of the best love stories I've ever read. Some of them were actually Christmas miracles because they didn't think they worthy of love.Published 3 months ago by Kindle Customer
