With the bookshop where she works about to close, Laura Horsley, in a moment of uncharacteristic recklessness, finds herself agreeing to help organise a literary festival deep in the heart of the English countryside.
But her initial excitement is rapidly followed by a mounting sense of panic when reality sinks in and she realises just how much work is involved especially when an innocent mistake leads the festival committee to mistakenly believe that Laura is a personal friend of the author at the top of their wish list.
Laura might have been secretly infatuated with the infamous Dermot Flynn ever since she studied him at university but travelling to Ireland to persuade the notorious recluse to come out of hiding is another matter. Determined to rise to the challenge she sets off to meet her literary hero. But all too soon she's confronted with more than she bargained for.
Dermot the man is maddening, temperamental and up to his ears in a nasty case of writer's block. But he's also infuriatingly attractive and apparently, out to add Laura to his list of conquests...
