An island castle in Cornwall, a kilt-wearing chef, and a haunting historical legend cook up a magically romantic novel from the award-winning author of Compulsion and Lake of Destiny.

Emma Larsen's mother may have been a best-selling romance novelist, but her own track record with relationships was a disaster even before an accident left her disabled and deeply bitter. Caring for her left Emma no time to think about a relationship of her own. It comes as a complete surprise when Emma's best friend Treave proposes after her mother's funeral, but she agrees to accompany him to a wedding at his family's island castle in Cornwall to see if they could become more than friends.

The Cornish coast is beautiful and wild, and a lost silver bell from the ruined abbey is said to ring whenever a wish will come true. But as tragedy rocks the small community with a tradition of ocean lifesaving that goes back a thousand years, no amount of wishing can change reality. And it isn't Treave but Brando, a handsome Scottish chef with secrets and a troubled past, who tugs at Emma's heart.

Emma doesn't want to hurt Treave, and falling in love with each other is the last thing either she or Brando expected. Neither of them is ready to trust their feelings. But as danger swirls around them, finding the courage to believe in happy endings might be the only way to save each other.
