Cowboys are a different breed…
They work hard, play hard and love harder.
It’s all about the ride, until the right woman
makes them fall.

Cord Dixon, Mr. Laramie in the world of western clothing modeling, loses his job because he refuses to sleep with his female boss. Christmas is coming, and his bills are due, so he takes the only job he can find. A mall Santa. Socialite wedding photographer, Hope Carlisle’s life disintegrates when she ruins the wedding of the year. In one fell swoop, she loses her best friend, her business partner and her fiancé. Unemployed and needing a job fast, Hope takes a job as an elf photographer at the local mall. She is not looking forward to her new job, until she meets her sexy Santa. Individually, Hope and Cord’s lives seem to be a hopeless mess. But with the magic of Christmas in the air, they work together to reclaim their lives and find love in the process.

Hope For Christmas was originally included in the holiday anthology Santa Wore Spurs. This novella launches The Cowboy Way series.


I started and finished this book in one day because I could not put it down. This is the first book that I have read by Becky McGraw and it will not be my last.

Cowboys, socialite, models, mishaps and Santa all lead to a fabulous story of about guilt, family, loyalty, jealousy, love, and learning to trust.

Cord Dixon left his family ranch home to become a model for Laramie Jeans and due to him saying no to a certain proposition he finds himself jobless and dressed in a Santa suit and not sure if he would be welcome back home. Hope Carlisle meets said Santa as she is his elf photographer because of a certain mishap in her past. On Hope’s first day Cord loses it and decides to quit which leaves Hope without a job till she has a brainwave and makes her own offer to Cord – which he accepts.

This story held me captive with the ups and downs of Cord making amends with his family, the budding romance/attraction between Cord and Hope, both frightened to say how they felt and what they wanted. The show of friendship from Cords friends to help him repair his family home, throw this all together and it all lead to an amazing love story that give you that feel good factor after finishing a book. Congrats Becky McGraw – LOVED it. 5 stars.
