Part One in the riveting romantic thriller about a family on the run from a deadly past and a first love that will transcend secrets, lies and danger…

Sarah Spencer has a secret: her real name is Tessa Carson, and to stay alive, she can tell no one the truth about her psychically gifted family and the danger they are running from. As the new girl in the latest of countless schools, she also runs from her attraction to Tristan Walker—after all, she can’t even tell him her real name. But Tristan won’t be put off by a few secrets. Not even dangerous ones that might rip Tessa from his arms before they even kiss.

Clara Kensie knows how to write an emotional thrilling romantic mystery! It's a good thing that this is a digital book, I believe I would have ripped pages if it was on paper! I couldn't read fast enough, Tessa's story is so deep and personal. You will not be able to put this down and you will definitely be craving to get to parts 2 and 3 right away...

Tessa's whole life is based on lies. But she has no choice. The lies keep her and her paranormal family safe from the bad man. They must flee every time he gets too close. New names, new home, new school... secrets must be kept and the family rules must be obeyed: never be left alone, do not attract attention, do not leave any traces behind. No one can ever know who she is, or her family's powers.
No one.

And then she meets Tristan.

Can Tessa allow herself to trust someone outside of her family? Can she let herself relax and enjoy a little bit of peace that she has finally found in her chaotic world?

This is definitely a story not to be missed!!!

Part Two in the riveting romantic thriller about a family on the run from a deadly past and a first love that will transcend secrets, lies and danger…

Tessa Carson has unlocked her heart and her secrets to Tristan Walker—but Tristan has secrets of his own, and his might just mean the end of Tessa’s family. Unaware, Tessa embraces falling in love and being herself for the first time since she was attacked when she was only eight years old. But secrets can’t be run from forever, and sometimes love is too good to be true.


And the riveting story continues!!!
I don't want to say too much, because I'm afraid I may slip with spoilers - but I promise, this is totally spoiler free!!!...

This time, Clara Kensie brings on the swoon and romance between Tessa and Tristan. 
We get to see Tessa relax and be more of herself around Tristan. She is smart and determined to finally try to let some of the past go and enjoy her life, finally.

But can Tessa really trust Tristan?
And, it seems that Tristan has a few skeletons in his closet too!!!

The suspense is unbelievable!
And unpredictable!

I really didn't see the cliffhanger ending to this one coming at all! It was a really good slap to the face! But it had to happen! And I am so thrilled with the story twisted with all of these surprises and where it ended up! The suspense is killing me!!!

You will definitely not be able to stop here! The third part is needed instantly! Don't wait!!!

Take deep breaths! You really need to prepare yourself for this part!!!

Can she handle this all alone???

Such a bittersweet ending.
Clara Kensie's writing is out of this world! I couldn't swipe the pages fast enough - I was so frustrated! I wanted to throw my ereader across the room! Such a page turner!!!

Things tie up nicely at the end, and gives us a lead into what the next three parts will be about
- and I cannot wait to


Clara Kensie grew up near Chicago, reading every book she could find and using her diary to write stories about a girl with psychic powers who solved mysteries. She purposely did not hide her diary, hoping someone would read it and assume she was writing about herself. Since then, she's swapped her diary for a computer and admits her characters are fictional, but otherwise she hasn't changed one bit.

Today Clara is the author of super-romantic psychic thrillers for young adults. RUN TO YOU, the first serialized novel from HarlequinTEEN, begins February 1 2014 with weekly releases. The sequel, also a three-part serial, begins June 1 2014.

Her favorite foods are guacamole and cookie dough. But not together. That would be gross.
