Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she’s struggling to conceal her power and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps, and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever.
Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town’s oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.
In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.

When I started this book I realized I tried to start it before. So I was just going to give up after the second page. I am so glad I didn't it was cute, romantic, funny and oddly frightening. I love the reference to other books and the story line is interesting totally out of the norm. And way refreshing considering all the Vampire books out right now. The twists in the story are not in any way minor. They make you question everything you thought was going to happen in the book. All in all, AH-mazing!!!!! I imagine i'll read it again one day. Can't wait to read Beautiful Darkness in a few days!
