Relationship shy, when he connects with Nicole, he begins to feel for her things he never thought possible. Then Nicole tells him that she is having a baby and Daniel almost heads for the hills. His family upbringing has made him doubt he could ever be a father, so when faced with the amazing Nicole, he doesn't know what to do.
The Texan's Christmas Baby by Tanya Michaels is the first Texas Rodeo Barons book I have had the pleasure of reading. I found it very easy to follow and enjoy the entire theme and would love to go back and read the previous tales leading up to this one. Nicole is a character I admire so much for her convictions. It's very hard to go it all alone, but her determination is something else. Daniel is a wonderful character, a gentleman who is understanding and a truly good person. He only has to come to terms with his misgivings, and that is what this book is all about.
