Allan Tengerdie tumbles down easy ski slopes so often that he doesn’t believe Mark McAvoy’s assurances that he’ll enjoy cross-country skiing. Allan didn’t come to a fancy ski resort to trudge on the flats, but if a soft-in-the-middle chef has a chance to keep up with his ski patrol lover, he really ought to try.

Allan and Mark have a great time on the trails, but it’s pleasure for which Allan pays dearly. How will Mark convince him to go again?

All it takes is a little time and he’s going to Cross the Mountain.

PD Singer is a new to me author. I’m glad I picked up this short story. From page one, I was immersed in the story and needed to know what would happen next. Though a short read, the characters are interesting and well-rounded.

Allan had an accident on his skis and is hesitant to give the sport he loves a second go. He’s leery to trust and leery of himself. Mark isn’t about to let Allan wallow. Nope. He’s strong and gutsy. He sees the best in Allan, even if Allan doesn’t see it himself. I liked how these two played off of each other and how even when Allan faltered, Mark was there to buoy him. He also gave the needed swift kick in the pants.

This is a sweet story, but one not to be missed. Grab a copy today.
