But on his first day into the town, he runs into Caitlin and the two find they are the focus of the town's attention. When an innocent dinner fuels the rumors circling the them, people mistakenly think Tristan is Caitlin's fiancé. Word of their engagement gives him a break from the pressure his agent is putting on him to write, and Caitlin provides an enticing distraction to staring at a blank screen.
As they agree to keep up the charade, Caitlin begins to wish they were a real couple. Will the Mistletoe mishap lead to love, or just more disappointment for Caitlin?
