The Friendly Beasts of Faraday

by Shanna Hatfield

There are times when I have way too much fun dreaming up new stories and writing them.

Such was the case with my brand new sweet holiday series — The Friendly Beasts of Faraday.  Set in a fictional town in Oregon, the books were inspired by the Christmas carol The Friendly Beasts.

These four romances are fun! Honest! And full of laughter, goofy, scheming animals, and couples who will just touch your heart.

She needed a change of pace. . .

No one said anything about a friendly camel or a hunky mechanic

* Scent of Cedar (Book 1) - A woman in need of a new beginning finds herself tormented by a camel and captivated by the town's bad boy. Can she overcome her fears to embrace a sweet holiday romance? 

Will a donkey, an adorable puppy, 

and a big-hearted man

Prove tidings of Joy last beyond the holiday season? 

* Tidings of Joy (Book 2)- Only one woman can draw a shy mail carrier out of his shell, but it will take the help of her donkey and puppy to make it happen. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07K813H3M/

He’d never met a more annoying woman. . .

She’d never met a more intriguing man

* Boughs of Holly (Book 3)- A free-spirited nurse winds up on a ranch with a stubborn cowboy and his matchmaking grandpa. Will love triumph over her need to roam? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07K8RGNKK/

The last thing she needs is a romance 

The first thing he intends to do is make her fall in love 

* Wings of an Angel  (Book 4) - Will a fun-loving teacher convince a woman sworn off romance to give love a second chance? He'll need a hand from her son and his furry, feathered friends. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07K8R6VQ1/

And just a reminder:

November 1 through December 24, ten percent of the net proceeds from all my book sales will be donated to the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund. The JCCF is a non-profit organization that assists rodeo athletes who’ve sustained catastrophic injuries and are unable to work for an extended period.

I decided to donate to JCCF after writing the first book in the sweet Rodeo Romance series that centers around rodeo athletes. Now in the fifth year, the Read a Book, Help a Cowboy campaign generates funds through book sales made during the holiday season and raises awareness about JCCF.  For more details about the campaign, please visit my website:

After spending her formative years on a farm in eastern Oregon, hopeless romantic Shanna Hatfield turns her rural experiences into sweet historical and contemporary romances filled with sarcasm, humor, and hunky heroes.
When this USA Today bestselling author isn’t writing or covertly hiding decadent chocolate from the other occupants of her home, Shanna hangs out with her beloved husband, Captain Cavedweller.
