Lauren’s senior year is going exactly as planned. Her craft blog is getting more visitors every day, and she knows what she’s going to do with her life after graduation: get her associate’s degree, marry someone fabulous, and live happily ever after.
Sure, she doesn’t know what she’s going to get that degree in…and there’s no Prince Charming on the horizon yet. But, still, that’s the plan.
At least, it is until Harrison Neeley shows up at her kitchen table one evening and derails everything…
Kira Dawson has the power to burn vampires to a crisp. The problem is, she doesn’t know it yet. The even bigger problem is, she’s dating one.
When Kira Dawson moves to South Carolina, she meets Luke, a blond goofball who quickly becomes her best friend, and Tristan, a mysterious bad boy who sends shivers down her spine. Kira knows they’re keeping secrets, but when she discovers Tristan’s lust for blood and her own dormant mystical powers, Kira is forced to fight for her life and make the heartbreaking decision between the familiar comfort of friendship and the fiery passion of love.
People are going to look at you differently after you read this book. They’re going to wonder what your secret is. And they’re going to ask for your Mexican food again, and again, and again.

Author Patrick Calhoun lived in Mexico for two years, soaking up all the bits and pieces of the world’s most distinct cuisine. This knowledge has been distilled into a friendly, step-by-step primer that’s loaded with hundreds of color photographs to help accelerate the learning curve.

Not too long from today, a new, highly contagious virus makes its way across the globe. Most who get sick experience nothing worse than flu, fever and headaches. But for the unlucky one percent – and nearly five million souls in the United States alone – the disease causes “Lock In”: Victims fully awake and aware, but unable to move or respond to stimulus.

Not only is she being trailed by an anonymous stalker, but she’s also reunited with the love of her life, a relationship that she cannot seem to stop self-sabotaging.
