He just never dreamed it would be a lullaby…
Nate Hunter went to college for a business degree, but he
prefers working as a bartender and enjoying his small-town,
single life. Then a dying ex-girlfriend tracks him down to tell
him he has a daughter he never knew existed.
Nate doesn’t know the first thing about being a father, but
one look at Autumn and he’s a goner, so he agrees to take
care of her until her aunt returns at Christmas.
When he asks no-nonsense librarian Maxine Abbott to move
in with him and help take care of his daughter, she agrees –
but only if he’ll pretend to be her boyfriend and get her
mother off her back.
Their relationship of convenience works perfectly at first, until
real feelings begin to chip away at their fake romance. Then
Autumn’s aunt shows up early, and everything changes. Will
Nate and Maxine’s budding love end in heartbreak before
the last leaves fall?
