A one-night stand showing up at your weekend away? It must be karma.

Professor Oliver Ballard is already reeling from the blow of missing out on a promotion. But when he checks into a country hotel to find that the guy he ghosted after a night of passion is not only staying down the hall but also stole his dream job, he can’t decide if fate loves him or hates him. Especially when his commitment to the single life starts to waver.

Craig Hofstader isn’t sure if it’s good luck, bad judgment, or jet lag that lands him at the feet, and in the bed, of his professional crush. He’s already doubting whether a relationship is worth the trouble – especially while juggling taking care of his son, navigating his professional obligations, and interpreting Oliver’s mixed signals.

With serendipity’s guiding hand – and a little help from the residents of Podlington – Oliver and Craig get a second chance to make a first impression in the ancient Somerset village where the magic of romance is all too real.
