Edie Barton is a sucker for tradition, and her favorite tradition of all is closing her guesthouse for one week at the end of May. One week of absolute solitude, to do as she pleases--and first on her list is visiting O’Driscoll’s Travelling Fairground. Every year since her adolescence, the fairground has come to Killymalin, and Edie loves that little has changed. Just as she’s about to close up for the week, an unexpected guest arrives in the form of the outrageously gorgeous and very charming Rohan Kapadia. Edie knows Rohan is running from something, but she cannot possibly imagine that he is a mega-star actor in India’s Bollywood, and that the demise of his engagement to the stunning-but-spiteful Neha Sharma has all but gutted him. Tired of the malicious lies in the gossip rags, Rohan has absconded to Ireland, where he shares a magical night with Edie at the fairground. Unable to deny their burning attraction, Edie and Rohan embark on a passionate love affair. Their sexual bliss comes to a crashing halt with the arrival of Rohan’s ex and a swarm of paparazzi. Edie must decide whether she trusts Rohan enough to disregard the stories in the magazines, or whether their relationship is doomed before it even begins.
