The two of us have been best friends forever. But one of us is faking it.

Gabe and I are the dynamic duo of Hunter’s Creek and have been ever since we were kids. My bestie is not only sweet and loyal, but he’s totally hot in that flannel-wearing lumberjack way of his. Not that I look at him like that.

Well, not since high school.

Thank goodness we have each other, because life in a small town can bore the socks right off you.

At least that was true until Hollywood showed up, bringing along hottie Joe Turner. The only problem is that Gabe hates Joe and he’s not letting me enjoy my chance at romance.

The Hunter’s Creek Ladies Committee, aka a bunch of women with nothing better to do, thinks it’s because Gabe is in love with me. But there’s no way that can be it.


Could they be right?


A people-pleasing cowboy, the fiery redhead that he plans to tame, and the fake engagement that brings a Christmas miracle.

Timothy Johnson has always done what was expected of him, and since his little brother’s wedding and adoption of their nephew, his parents have put pressure on Timmy to start a family of his own.

After unintentionally finding out a secret about the newest employee at Christmas Tree Ranch, he comes up with an idea way outside his comfort zone. An idea that could just make everyone’s dreams come true, that is if he can convince the alluring redhead that he’s more than her first impression of him. For once in his life, he decides to go out on a limb and play with fire.

Ember Brown has been running most of her life. She’s tired and wants to put down roots. She finds the perfect small town and a job at a local ranch, but the owner's grandson overheard her on the phone with her brother and now he knows her secret. What’s worse is that he’s drop-dead gorgeous.

Every time Timothy visits the ranch, she wonders if it will be the day he exposes her, forcing her to flee once again. The holidays are coming and she wants more than anything to rest, so when he shocks her by proposing a fake engagement, she warily agrees.

Christmas Tree Hill has its own magic, drawing the two together on a Christmas mission that leaves them both realizing more is at stake than they ever thought possible.
