Can one magical kiss seal a young girl’s heart forever?
Since the loss of her older brother, Davy, fifteen-year-old Katie McCullough must face the reality that she's alone in the world, except for a bitter, controlling aunt that is now her guardian.
After her brother’s funeral, Katie escapes to the nearby lighthouse to grieve. While there, she's surprised by a young naval officer, Max Sawyer, who comforts her with one tender kiss, then abruptly leaves.
Max promised Davy that he’d look out for Katie if anything ever happened to him. A task that should be easy, except Katie’s aunt has refused to let him anywhere near her. With only one week stateside before his deployment overseas, Max has to figure out a way to keep his promise to Davy, while keeping his identity a secret from Katie.
