For times when I need just a bit of fluff to read, I love to have books like A Prairie Christmas Collection, because the novellas are short enough to fill a bit of time and complete in one sitting. This collection is no different. My favorite was the Buckskin Bride by Vickie McDonough. Mattie, Millie, and their sister, Jess, were living in a teepee on Donall's land and waiting for their father to return from hunting. He's been gone a while and the girls miss him, but they know what to do to protect themselves. In hiding from someone approaching their campsite, Jess gets hurt and Donall and his family offer their hospitality while Jess recovers from her broken ankle. This story takes twists and turns to finally get Mattie and Donall together.
