He’s a former rodeo star who gave up his career to run the family ranch.
She’s an aspiring chef with a food truck, a dream, and no interest in another man coming along to ruin her plans.
Troy Lucas walked away from his winning rodeo career to run the family ranch after the death of his grandfather. Now, being a rancher, a farrier, and even team roping just for fun can’t seem to keep him satisfied. He didn’t think he’d miss his glory days in the rodeo when he came back home – in fact, there’s nowhere else he’d rather be. Still, he can’t deny the hole inside that keeps reminding him he’s longing for something . . . more.
Chef Lark Gibson has only one thing on her mind: opening a restaurant in Portland. Until that day comes, Lark will take her food truck to as many events as possible and make sure her customers are always begging for more. The last thing she expected was to find herself distracted by a knight in dusty Wranglers, until a handsome cowboy comes to her rescue and catches her off-guard.
Will the approaching Christmas season lead this hungry cowboy and ambitious chef to realize that what they think they want isn’t what they really need? Find out in Savoring Christmas, a sweet romance full of humor, heart, and holiday fun.

Jay started putting away the supplies she’d brought and glanced over his shoulder at her. “Tell me more, Lark.”
“More? About what? I told you all there is to know about the runaway steer.”
Jay shook his head as he filled the napkin dispensers. “I don’t care about that. Tell me about this cowboy who caught your eye.”
“He didn’t catch my eye,” she huffed. Her protest seemed a little rushed and forced even to her.
When her brother chuckled, she knew he was aware of her interest in her cowboy-hat-wearing hero.
“Fine,” she admitted. “He may have earned a second glance.”
“Or fourth, from the way you were studying him.” Jay looked over his shoulder at her. “Admit it, you like him.”
Lark shot a hair band at her brother. “I’m not admitting anything, bro. I just met him. I don’t know enough about him to like or dislike him.”
“Keep telling yourself that,” Jay muttered.
Troy is a man who has always put his family first as evidenced by his withdrawing from the rodeo circuit so that he could manage the ranch his family owns. While participating in a local fair he meets Lark when he comes to her rescue and despite all his responsibilities, he knew that she was special.
Lark has plans for her future which include leaving town and pursuing her dream of owning a restaurant despite all the challenges she has overcome so far. Until that can become a reality, she works tirelessly on her food truck, but meeting Troy was a surprise she didn’t see coming.
This is a heartwarming story between two captivating characters. Despite the fact that they weren’t looking for love or a relationship they are about to realize that the best things in life happen when you least expect it.
USA Today Bestselling Author Shanna Hatfield writes sweet romances rich with relatable characters, small town settings that feel like home, humor, and hope.
Her historical westerns have been described as “reminiscent of the era captured by Bonanza and The Virginian” while her contemporary works have been called “laugh-out-loud funny, and a little heart-pumping sexy without being explicit in any way.”
When this farm girl isn’t writing or indulging in rich, decadent chocolate, Shanna hangs out with her husband, lovingly known as Captain Cavedweller. She also experiments with recipes, snaps photos of her adorable nephew, and caters to the whims of a cranky cat named Drooley.
