When jaded and overworked Los Angeles literary agent Daniel Ashe hires Annie Doherty, an Irish dog walker, he’s simply looking for someone to care for his dogs so he can focus on landing a dream client and save his career. He certainly doesn’t expect to come home each night to find Annie has left him a new and fantastical story about the secret lives of his dogs—or that she’s cast him, a man who doesn’t believe in love, as a romantic hero. Now his nights are spent in a fantastical sea world, a magical circus, and the kingdoms of wonder and discord where these characters live.

Each morning Daniel writes Annie a letter, asking her the questions he needs answered to get her off his mind, and each evening he finds himself more entranced than the night before. When his personal life and professional one collide, Daniel must ask himself how much he really knows about his dog walker and whether he’s truly incapable of falling in love after all.
