Lily Grace has escaped the confines of the Scottish village where she grew up, and is at college in Newcastle. She loves her student life and hopes to stretch her wings even further by working on a cruise ship. The only cloud on the horizon is the blunder she made when she kissed her lecturer. Then a trip to Ireland for a family funeral changes everything. There she meets student Dara Ryan, and her brother Declan is smitten by the gorgeous Ava. Lily and Dara fall in love but she is fearful that a long-distance love affair is doomed. When her father makes a shocking confession, Lily realises that a kiss is the least of the problems she must solve before summer’s end.
