Racing Christmas by Shanna Hatfield
She’s racing to save the ranch
He’s struggling to win her heart. . . again
Brylee Barton has just one goal in mind: win the barrel racing world championship. Not for the glory, but for the attached cash prize that could save her family’s ranch. When an injury leaves her at the mercy of the very same copper-headed, silver-tongued cowboy she once vowed to loathe forever, she has no choice but to swallow her pride and accept his help.
Fun-loving, easy-going Shaun Price has a million dollar smile, more charm than he can channel, and a string of ex-girlfriends rumored to have started their own support group. When the one woman he’s never quite managed to get out of his head or heart needs his assistance, he jumps at the chance to help. Little does he realize how challenging it will be to keep from falling for her all over again.
With the holiday season fast approaching, will Shaun and Brylee discover the gift of forgiveness, and experience their own happily-ever-after?
This sweet Christmas romance warms the heart, lifts the spirit, and touches the soul with its message of forgiveness, hope, and redemption. Don’t miss it!

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Back in 2013, I was researching details for the first book in the Rodeo Romance series. In the story, the hero sustains an injury at a rodeo. In an attempt to get my facts straight for the story, I reached out to the Justin Sportsmedicine Team®. Their responses to my questions were extremely helpful and I was so impressed with them, I wanted to do a little something in return. So I launched a campaign to donate a portion of my book sales to the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund.
Racing Christmas is the sixth book in the series and continues to promote awareness of the help JCCF brings to injured rodeo athletes with a portion of the book sales donated to the organization through Christmas Eve.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
The hero, Shaun Price, was briefly introduced in a previous book in the series. He needed a sweet, tough woman to balance his personality and that's when Brylee Barton was created.
One of the other barrel racers waved at Brylee and motioned for Brylee to join her and two other girls. Brylee bit back a sigh and handed the lead rope to Shaun. “If you’re sure you don’t mind?”
“Not at all. You go do the girly chat stuff,” he said with assurance then waved at the girls.
Brylee walked out of the arena and over to where the girls sipped coffee. “Good morning.”
“Morning, Brylee. How’d you talk the bronzed Adonis into helping you?” one of the girls asked.
Brylee glanced back to where Shaun walked Rocket around the arena. She shrugged. “He volunteered.”
“After the ad I saw yesterday, it’s a wonder you don’t have guys following your every footstep,” another girl commented, giving Brylee a teasing smile.
“I’m nobody important. If they don’t know that already, they will soon enough.” Brylee forced a smile. “Is there something you girls needed?”
“No, we just wanted to watch him do that.” The third girl pointed as Shaun broke into a jog and ran alongside Rocket.
Between the muscles, tanned arms, long legs, and early morning sunlight glinting off his hatless head, Brylee’s mouth suddenly went dry.
One of the girls bumped her with her elbow and offered a smug smile. “You’re welcome.”
