Baseball star Hudson Mitchel is sick of paparazzi, sick of groupies, and sick of women throwing themselves at his feet. His playboy lifestyle has fueled a rash of bad publicity and his errors during the championship game is making matters worse. He needs to duck out of the limelight until things calm down. Dodging reporters, paparazzi, and ex-lovers, he shaves his trademark beard and checks into a golf resort near Black Moose, Vermont under an alias. The place is so remote his cabin doesn’t even have wi-fi. Which is just fine with him.
Sileen Wright has time for everyone but herself. She fights red ink at her granddad’s aging golf resort and chairs the Black Moose Chamber of Commerce. She’s even thinking of running for mayor. But first things first—she needs to get the fairground’s transformer replaced before the Fall Festival. If the event’s cancelled, tourists and their dollars will land at the upscale resort outside town and the business owners of Black Moose will be in for a hard winter.
What Sileen knows about baseball could fit in a thimble. She certainly has no idea the national superstar voted “Sexiest Sports Idol” is hiding out in one of her cabins. Sure, the guy’s handsome, but he’s a city boy through and through, useless when it comes to evading a mama bear.
It only seems right for Hudson to strike up a friendship with the woman who saved his hide from an angry bear. Being liked for himself—instead of for his body and fame—is a long-forgotten experience. Hudson’s enjoying Black Moose and its down-to-earth residents. And he’s falling for Sileen. Could it ever work out between them? She doesn’t have a deceitful bone in her body and Hudson’s been lying to her since they moment they met. He hasn’t even told her his real name! Sileen’s life is firmly planted in Black Moose, while Hudson’s career keeps him in big cities and on the road. Maybe they’re destined to be two ships passing in the night.
If you’re looking for a sweet story inhabited by characters so real you could swear you know them in real life, I highly recommend Perfect Fall.
