Seventeen year old Natasha Johnson is having a rough year. Her twin brother, Sean, died last summer after a car crash, and her parents decided to pack up and leave the only home she’d known all her life. It’s a lot to take in, and Nat has decidedly given up on the world, until moving to Stetson Valley and meeting high school ‘outcast’, Chace Owens.
Chace’s dark and mysterious aura is not exactly seen as ‘normal’, but Nat already knows that not a lot of things are of the norm when it comes to her life. She soon finds herself unable to resist Chace’s strange pull on her heart, unleashing a sudden attraction to the unnatural forces that have always been burning within her. But with uncovering her true self brings forth great danger, as Nat learns that her brother’s death had a lot more to do with the side she’s unable to resist.
Can Natasha calm the blazing flames and withstand the threat of danger, or will this new found power destroy her?
I felt someone’s eyes watching me intently. The feeling unnerved me and I just had to find the source.
I didn’t have to search long, as his presence blocked out everyone else’s. He gave me the impression he was around my age, seventeen. He was also remarkably gorgeous, and sitting by himself at a table close to the window. Was he there when I walked in? No, I would’ve seen him. His presence was too demanding to miss.

I turned my attention back to the book fast and pretended not to be bothered. However, he aroused me. I wanted, needed to see if he was still staring. I lifted my head slowly, but just my luck, he was gone.
“Who was that guy?”
