Travis had been here at Sutton Station for just over a year. We were technically engaged, not that we’d told anyone. He was happy just knowin’ I’d said yes, and I had some head-clearin’ stuff to work through. Knowing I was good enough for Trav was one thing, but knowing if I was good enough to be a husband and father was somethin’ else entirely.
Life at Sutton Station had never been better. Business was strong, Trudy and Bacon’s little baby, Gracie, was a few weeks old now and as cute as a button, Ma’s health was good, and my relationship with Laura and Sam was in a pretty good place. And Travis? Well, life with him was still all kinds of perfect.
But, to Travis’s dismay, Christmas at the Station was just another day. Another day of getting up before the sun, feeding animals, fixin’ what needed fixin’, and checking water troughs all while tryin’ to keep out of the blistering heat.
And this year weren’t much different. Only that it was Travis’s first Sutton Station Christmas. The fact we didn’t go all out with decorations and celebrations baffled him, and if I was bein’ truthful, it disappointed him too.
Which was why I had to make it a special kind of Christmas…
Welcome back to Sutton Station!
Fans of Red Dirt Heart, you do not want to miss this! When it popped up in my inbox, I had to take a few minutes to calm myself down.
This story takes place between book 3 and 4. There’s no Millie yet, and it’s Travis’ first Christmas in Australia. But the whole gang is there; Ma and George, Trudy, Bacon and little Gracie.
I don’t want to give away too much, just know that there is a lot going on in these few pages. Broken noses, misbehaving wombats, snakes that try to pass for tinsels and a lot of red, red dirt.
But the best part was the sweet, funny and sexy moments between Travis and Charlie, the warm family times and the best of Christmas surprises.
I ‘ve read a lot of great Holiday stories this year, but this one is special and it made me feel like coming home. Recommended, of course.
