Perched between bleak moors and a cold, grey winter sea, the North Devon Riviera Hotel is an unlikely destination for February. But, for the handful of guests gathered under its roof it's just about perfect.
Amy Miller has fallen in love with a married man. A famous married man. And they've been caught. With the tabloid press in pursuit, Amy's gone into hiding, holing up where she's sure no-one will ever find her. Waiting for her lover to call, Amy begins to question their affair, wondering if it's really what she wanted, wondering even if there is a point to love...
But as the hotel prepares for its Valentine's ball and the tabloids circle ever closer, Amy and the North Devon Riviera's other guests are going to discover that love - whether it's young love, old love, shared love or unrequited love, a night's love or a lifetime's love - does indeed make the world go round.
