Fletcher Lockwood hopes to rediscover his muse at a northern California retreat.
What he doesn’t expect is to fall in love.
After weeks of zero inspiration and no new music, Fletcher’s manager suggests a break. Time away from the studio and city noise. Two weeks at an exclusive retreat on the Pacific coast. With nothing to lose, Fletcher packs his bags, hops on a plane, and leaves life behind.
On the first night, Fletcher spots her on the other side of the room. The quiet, demure beauty lost in her own thoughts. A brittle sadness in her facial expression and body language. And he can’t look away. Until he gets caught.
But that doesn’t stop his wandering eyes. Or his indescribable need to know this woman.
Once he summons the courage to talk to her, Fletcher and Madeline share two incredible weeks at the retreat. Form a connection to rival others. Without effort, their relationship blooms into the unexpected. Until Madeline leaves the retreat early without notice.
No way to keep in touch.
On tour a year later, Fletcher looks up from his guitar to spot the woman always on his mind. Madeline. With one look, the inseparable bond they shared reignites. Within days, their connection eclipses all others.
But there is something Madeline has yet to share. Her heart belongs to another.
Will Fletcher be able to win Madeline’s heart?
Or will the ghost of her past keep her from moving on?
