In grey, 1930s England, Bea has grown up kicking against the conventions
of the time, all the while knowing that she will one day
have to marry someone her parents choose - someone rich enough to
keep the family estate alive. But she longs for so much more - for
adventure, excitement, travel, and maybe even romance. When
she gets the chance to spend the summer in Italy with her bohemian
uncle and his fianc e, a whole world is opened up to Bea - a world
that includes Ben, a cocky young artist who just happens to
be infuriatingly handsome too. Sparks fly between the quick-witted
pair until one night, under the stars, a challenge is set: can
Bea and Ben put aside their teasing and have the perfect summer romance?
With their new friends gleefully setting the rules for
their fling, Bea and Ben can agree on one thing at least: they absolutely,
positively will not, cannot fall in love... A long,
hot summer of kisses and mischief unfolds - but storm clouds are
gathering across Europe, and home is calling. Every summer has to
end - but for Bea, this might be just the beginning.
