Having recently been awarded a scholarship to Auburn University, she is set to fulfill her dream of becoming a veterinarian.  However, for a couple of months, she’s been dealing privately with the symptoms of a mysterious illness. Even though her grandmother won’t believe her, Saren knows she’s not pregnant. But, what is wrong with her?  In addition to dealing with the strange and troubling sickness that comes and goes on a whim, she is faced with an unexplainable attraction to Lliam McClellan, a handsome new senior at Rubicon High, who just happens to be in her Calculus class and who won’t quit staring at her with his piercing blue-gray eyes.

Right up until she stumbles into Jude Ryder, a guy whose name has become its own verb, and synonymous with trouble. He’s got a rap sheet that runs longer than a senior thesis, has had his name sighed, shouted, and cursed by more women than Lucy dares to ask, and lives at the local boys home where disturbed seems to be the status quo for the residents.

She lives for wearing the satin down on her ballet shoes, has her sights set on Juilliard, and has been careful to keep trouble out of her life. Up until now.  Jude’s everything she knows she needs to stay away from if she wants to separate her past from her future. Staying away, she’s about to find out, is the only thing she’s incapable of.  For Lucy Larson and Jude Ryder, love’s about to become the thing that tears them apart.
