Jennifer Jane Watson has spent the past ten Christmases in a maximum security prison. The last thing she expects is to get early parole along with a job on a secluded Canadian cattle ranch serving Christmas holiday dinners to three of the sexiest cowboys she's ever met!

Rafe, Brady and Dan thought they were getting a couple of male ex-cons to help out around their secluded ranch. The last thing they expect is an attractive and very appealing woman fresh out of prison. In the snowbound wilds of Northern Ontario, female companionship is rare. It's a good thing the three men like to share...

They're dominating, sexy-as-sin and they fill JJ with the hottest ménage fantasies she's ever had. Suddenly she's craving Cowboys for Christmas and wishing for something she knows she can never have...a happily ever after.

I got this book as part of the "A Touch of Menage" box set by Jan Springer when it was on sale for 99c because I'm a naughty, naughty girl and I do like a good menage story.

This story was relatively well written and I thought that it was very interesting that Jan Springer made her heroine a convicted (though wrongfully) murderer. It was interesting that in the 10 years that JJ was incarcerated that she still was able to remain nice and sweet, and did not turn rough, mean and jaded.

The story opens with JJ getting paroled and getting a job housekeeping and cooking for three cowboys in the wilds of Northern Ontario. Of course, the cowboys are gorgeous and it's attraction and lust at first sight (isn't that they way with erotic romances?).

As the story progresses, we get to see Brady, Rafe and Dan as three hardworking and principled guys who have a growing attraction to JJ, which is reciprocated by JJ, but JJ being afraid to jeopardise her job and being thrown back into jail doesn't act on the attraction until a little outing she has with the guys. Of course, after that, all bets are off and the guys plot the best way to get her into their beds, individually and together.

What follows is plenty of sexy times between JJ and the guys, which is relatively well written except for the fact that Jan Springer uses the term "creamed" a lot when describing JJ's arousal. That's just gross. I can't remember the number of times that I read the phrase "she creamed" in the story but it put me off every time. Memo to Ms Springer: that's not sexy, in fact, it's rather disgusting actually. Of course, this could be just me, any others might find it a perfectly acceptable descriptor.

I would have also liked the last and only menage scene to have been a little longer and more detailed. I thought the ending was rather abrupt.

Overall, this was an enjoyable and easy read.
