Pioneer Hearts , a Facebook group dedicated to western romance, is hosting a month-long Christmas event.

You could at least act surprised. :P) I couldn't come up with a by-the-seat-of-my-pants scene, and Christmas was not a good time for my characters, so I decided to post some real historical romance instead.
