    From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.

    The one that got away. Every girl has one, right?
    Mine was a charming, British aristocrat who turned my world upside down one summer.
    From the moment I first spotted Leo in the distance through my binoculars, I’d been captivated. I certainly never expected to find a man showering outside of the property across the bay in his birthday suit.
    Then I noticed his housemate staring back at me with binoculars of his own—watching me watching Leo.
    That made for an interesting conversation starter when I inevitably ran into them.
    Turned out, the handsome Brits were only renting that house for the summer in my seaside town.
    Leo and I formed an instant connection, even though we were technically opposites by all appearances. I taught him how to dig for clams, and he taught me that not all wealthy and powerful guys are pretentious.
    Despite knowing he was totally wrong for me, I couldn’t seem to stay away.
    It was a wild and crazy few months. And before I knew it, we’d fallen in love.
    We both had one wish: more time together.
    But Leo had obligations back home. He lived a life I’d never fit into. And I was going to law school. So, we decided to end it and never look back.
    A part of me always felt like I’d let my soulmate walk away.
    I believed our story was over.
    Until five years later when he sent me a letter that shook me to my core.
    I’d thought my world was turned upside down that first summer?
    Well, I knew nothing yet.
