There are some summers you’ll remember forever.
Fiery chef Élise is determined to make this summer one of them – but, with the grand opening of her café falling apart, it looks like it might be for all the wrong reasons. Until Sean O’Neil comes back to town.
Last Summer Élise and Sean shared one hazy whirlwind night together and Élise is looking forward to repeating their encounter. As long as she can stick to her one-night-only rule and listen to her head rather than her heart. After all, Sean hates life in his home town and is planning on leaving again as soon as he can.
But recapturing last summer’s magic could change everything…

He slid his hand behind her head and brought his mouth down on hers in a hard, demanding kiss that stirred up a raw hunger. A kaleidoscope of emotions ripped through him but the prime one was need. It spread through him, not slowly, but like wildfire burning everything in sight. Gripped by it, Sean powered her back against the railing and trapped her there.
Last time, she’d started it. Now it was his turn.
He felt the softness of her body pressing through the thin fabric of his shirt, the erotic slide of her tongue against his, and desire escalated to a dangerous blaze. Her arms went around his neck and she purred deep in her throat like a thoroughly contented kitten.
His brain blurred. No other woman had made him feel like this. No other woman had stirred this intense, desperate hunger that wiped all thoughts from his head.
Maybe it was because she didn’t want anything from him but this and knowing that meant he could relax and give in to it.
Rock-hard, he felt her tug his shirt out of his trousers and slide her hands over his skin, greedy to touch him. And he was equally greedy to touch her. His fingers were on her buttons, loosening them, giving him access to the smooth creamy skin revealed by the lace of her bra.
His body craved hers. It was a visceral, physical need that drove all thought from his brain.
And then she stilled, placed her hands on his chest and drew her mouth away from his.
Sensing the change in her he stopped himself from dragging her back. “What’s wrong?”

Coffee & Cake with… Sarah Morgan
We managed to grab the author of Suddenly Last Summer, Sarah Morgan, for five minutes to talk Macbeth, gerberas and the potential existence of ghosts...
What coffee would you like?
Cappuccino please, really hot with chocolate on top and a teaspoon so I can poke at the foam.
And which cake can we get you?
What’s your earliest childhood memory?
A ballet class. I remember wearing pink tights.
If you could invite 3 people, dead or alive, to a dinner party…
I’d invite the chef Jamie Oliver so he can cook the food, Queen Elizabeth and Richard Armitage.
What’s your favourite quote?
‘Come what come may, time and tide run through the roughest day.’ Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
The best thing that can happen to a person.
What achievement are you most proud of?
I asked my family this. My husband said it was marrying him, my kids said it was having them - I think it’s probably being a published author. It’s my dream and I feel very lucky to do this job.
Do you believe in ghosts?
I was going to say no, but then the lights went off as I was typing this and I decided maybe I do!
Who’s your favourite writer?
I find this a hard question. If I could only pick one I’d probably say Nora Roberts. I think she is a gifted storyteller and she’s also a lovely person!
What’s your favourite flower?
Gerberas. They always make me smile.
Who would play you in a movie about your life?
The perfect man must have…
If he’s living with me then he’s going to need a sense of humour, patience and be calm and strong in a crisis (which will probably be of my making).
