The Right Mr. Wrong-Cindi Myers
The Right Mr. Wrong
Harlequin American, Feb 2008, $4.99
Maddie Alexander was a member of the U.S. Olympic ski team with a reasonable chance of medal when the accident ended her career. Though her dreams were smashed along with her body, Maddie has moved on. She has just begun work as a rookie ski patroller at the Crested Butte Mountain Resort in Colorado.
When she meets experienced peer Hagan Ansdar, Maddie is attracted to him, but adheres to her competitive days mantra to never mix romance with skiing as that is an avoidable wipe out. He feels the same way as she, but goes out of his way to avoid her when he can or cynically rip her when he cannot. On a gut level he recognizes the threat she poses to his lifestyle as she commits to passion while he prefers to remain an unattached ski bum hitting on the tourists. However, as they work together, they fall in love, but can Hagan commit to a relationship for the first time in his life?
THE RIGHT MR. WRONG is a superb contemporary romance starring two individuals who seem like opposites, but share two things: a love of skiing and a love of each other. The story line is fast-paced, filled with unexpected but delightful twists and twinkling with humor. Sub-genre fans will enjoy patrolling the ski sloes of Colorado with this pair.
