Aaron O’Donovan is a rational man prone to reflection, used to being proactive and finding a solution for every problem. He’s spent the past few years taking care of his sister and running a pub that he owns with his friends, after setting aside his passion for music. Aaron is a constant presence in the lives of the people who surround him, a rock you can count on; but Aaron is a lonely man who has given up his own ambitions. Someone with a difficult past behind him. His experiences have made him cynical, unable to believe in anything – especially in love.
Ciara Doyle works as a tour guide during her final year of an Art History degree. She’s young and full of life. Her world is made up of light, colour and limitless dreams. She believes in people, in love and in happily-ever-after, even though there’s only space for one man in her heart — the only man she shouldn’t want.
Aaron has known Ciara since she was a child and has always thought of her as a sister: he’s watched her grow up before his eyes, maturing into a beautiful, sexy woman, so headstrong and proud. A woman who knows what she wants. And Ciara wants Aaron.
Aaron tries to resist her, but the passion between them explodes, forcing him to give in to something that he has denied himself for years. However, giving in to her would mean the end of her dreams – because Aaron isn’t capable of love.
He can never be her Prince Charming.
