It’s golf, but not as we know it.

When Jennifer Gates drives to Sea Breeze Golf Club to kick off date-night with her boyfriend, the last thing she expects is to find Golf-Pro Jack giving one of his lady students a private—and very personal—lesson in bunker-play.

Lucky for Jenn, her best friend gives her the keys to the Culhane family’s beach shack on the white-pepper shores of Western Australia’s Geographe Bay. Jenn hopes a weekend on the coast with her young son will give her the space she needs to rebuild her confidence after Jack’s betrayal.

But she’s not the only person seeking sanctuary by the sea. Brayden Culhane is there too, and Jenn can’t look at Brayden without remembering the tequila-flavoured kiss they shared on the shack steps years ago.

As long-buried feelings are rekindled, and a friendship is renewed, Jenn knows it is more than lazy summer days bringing her mojo back. Romantic sunsets, ice-cold beers and the odd round of golf can only go so far, because this time, trusting Brayden with her heart won’t be enough. Jenn has to learn to trust her body, too.

“Are you Jennifer Gates?”

“I am.”

“Happy Valentine’s Day.” She gives me a wide, generous smile. “Please sign here.”

She holds out a device with a screen and a pen. Tucked under her other arm is a tall, clear, cylinder containing a single, perfect yellow rose.

I sign, and she hands over the rose and the card and wishes me a lovely day before she runs to her delivery van.

Valentines’ Day. I hadn’t given it a thought.

In the kitchen, I open the cylinder and put the stem in the tallest glass I can find.

My fingers fumble as they prise open the card.


I always thought a yellow rose about to open was the most beautiful thing in the world.

Then I found you.


I read those words for a very long time, stunned by the simplicity, the beauty—by the way the note unfolds so much more than paper and ink to me.
