Winter Countdown Blitz Day 4

USA Today bestselling author Shanna Hatfield is a farm girl who loves to write. Her sweet historical and contemporary romances are filled with sarcasm, humor, hope, and hunky heroes.


When Shanna isn't dreaming up unforgettable characters, twisting plots, or covertly seeking dark, decadent chocolate, she hangs out with her beloved husband, Captain Cavedweller.

A focused cowboy, a distracted executive, and a hilarious quest make for an unforgettable holiday . . .

Wyatt Nash is a professional tie-down roper, a good ranch hand, and not too shabby when it comes to attracting women. But according to his five-year-old niece, he needs to work on both his roping skills and his dating game. His sister thinks he needs to settle down. And don’t get him started on the advice he gets from well-meaning friends. When his rodeo sponsor, billionaire Jon Sinclair, asks for his assistance in tutoring a clueless city girl about Sinclair Industries, Wyatt doesn’t feel like he can say no. Then he discovers he’ll be teaching none other than the one woman on the planet who wants nothing to do with him.

Ashley Jarrett would do almost anything to turn her small publicity firm into a huge success. When Jon Sinclair expresses interest in working with her, she readily agrees to his crazy idea to have her learn about his company through hands-on projects. Not only is she forced far outside her comfort zone, but the man documenting every bumbling misstep she takes is an infuriating cowboy she’s determined to ignore.

Packed with small-town charm and the wonder of falling in love, Roping Christmas is a sweet holiday romance sure to bring laughter and infuse hearts Christmas cheer.  


Author Interview:

1. What is your favorite Wintertime Activity? When I was younger, sledding was my absolute favorite thing. We lived on a hill and I could grab my sled and go for a ride within a few steps of our back door. A close second would have been ice skating because we had a pond at the bottom of the hill and my brother kept the snow swept off it because he enjoyed skating, too. Now, my favorite thing is to cozy up by the fire with a good book and a cup of tea. 

2. How many unpublishes / half-finished books do you have in progress? I have one I'm working on right now. Once I start I book, I have to finish it! 

3. What was the most surprising thing you learned when creating your book (in research or in yourself?) For Roping Christmas, the heroine has to complete a bunch of challenges to earn the business of a billionaire tycoon. The hero helps her with the tasks. One of the challenges was to make her own pair of boots. It was fascinating to research what goes into making a pair of boots and the time involved to create them.

4. Tell us about the greatest Christmas gift you ever received. That one is easy - my husband! We met on a blind date the day after Christmas and we married a year later, a week before Christmas. He is by far the best gift I've ever received. 

5. What did you edit out of your book? (Such as a cut scene or an idea that just wouldn't fit?) Roping Christmas features many laugh-out-loud scenes. I could have added a dozen more because I was just having so much fun with the story. 

6. What inspired you to write this novel? Every holiday season I run a campaign called Read a Book, Help A Cowboy. To help kick off the campaign, I like to release a book in my Rodeo Romance series, which Roping Christmas is part of. Beyond that, I just thought it would be a lot of fun to write a story about a city girl faced with several challenges only a country boy could help her get through.
