One summer can change everything.
Jacinda Prescott spent one life-changing summer in Sweet Breeze Bay, New Zealand, and left disaster in her wake. Since then, she’s thrown herself into her music career, and her life in LA. But when the price of fame threatens to become more than she’s willing to pay, the distant bay calls her back.
Liam Ward walked away from everything he knew after the death of his talented brother, the guy Jacinda loved and lost. When he finally returns to the bay, looking for closure, she’s the last person he expects to find—and the last woman he should fall for.
Stuck as neighbors for the summer, their off-limits attraction is hotter than the South Pacific sun. But the secret that ties them together is the one thing that could destroy her career, and break their hearts all over again…if they let it.
Serena Clarke writes feel-good contemporary romance with sweetness AND heat. Readers have described her books as engaging page-turners, with sigh-worthy happy endings that’ll leave you smiling.
Her own story? She’s lived in thirty-nine houses, in seven cities, in four countries. She’s been a riding instructor, edited a medical journal, worked in a London law firm, and taught English as a second language to wayward teenagers. And now she’s found her own happy ending – near the beach in beautiful New Zealand, writing the kind of sweet, hot books she loves to read. She hopes you’ll love them too!
