Saddle maker Ben Radcliffe grew up with a verbally abusive, overbearing father. This experience convinced him to avoid marriage as well as siring any children, for fear he will turn out like his old man. To ensure he never puts any children through what he endured, he undergoes a vasectomy. Hired by Jack and his siblings at the Last Chance ranch to make a custom saddle for their mother's seventieth birthday, Ben delivers it in person. It is close to the holidays and Ben is invited to stay with them. His only other choice to spend the holidays alone, Ben takes them up on their invitation and is captivated by the closeness and love this family exhibits. But it is their visiting cousin who really draws his attention.

Molly Gallagher is a history professor whose love for genealogy has sent her on a visit to her cousins at the Last Chance ranch, trying to get them to help her with her genealogy research by supplying information about their branch of the family. She is enjoying her time there, especially after Ben arrives. Their bedrooms are the only ones occupied in that section of the house and hearing him play the harmonica brings back sweet memories of her grandfather who used to play the instrument to put her to sleep when she was young. As much as she would love to stay longer, she is due to leave in four days. She has no intention of missing the big Gallagher family Christmas celebration in Prescott. Having attended the event faithfully for the past twenty-eight years, her record is spotless. Molly doesn't count on coming back to Wyoming again in the near future, so she knows she should just forget about Ben. But just seeing the man fills her with desire.

After things turn hot and heavy between Ben and Molly, she has a choice to make; does she stay at Last Chance to see where her relationship with Ben takes her, or leave to attend her family's annual celebration? Between Molly, the close-knit family at Last Chance and Christmas magic, will Ben change his mind about never having a family of his own?

New York Times bestselling author Vicki Lewis Thompson's latest release, A LAST CHANCE CHRISTMAS, is a sensual, holiday story that lovers of contemporary romance won't want to miss. As the most recent of Ms. Thompson's SONS OF CHANCE novels, this heartwarming tale is certain to put readers in a holiday mood. Ben and Molly are two hardworking people who came from different backgrounds. Ben was raised in an abusive environment while Molly's family is close, but these two could not be more perfect for each other. When these two meet, it doesn't take long for the sparks to fly.

Snowstorms, Christmas, passion, family dynamics, ranch life, humor, romance and love are just part of what makes this story so captivating. Although it is part of a series, this book can be read as a standalone, but I am sure that readers will find it hard to stop at just one and will seek out the rest. Do not miss this wonderfully heartening tale. It is a must for the holidays and all year long!
