Debut-novelist Jenny Elliott’s thrilling romance, chosen by readers, writers, and publishers for the first list in the new Swoon Reads imprint, pours on the tension and danger in an addictive combination that will keep you turning pages!

Something strange is going on in the tiny coastal town of Liberty, Oregon. Cara has never seen a whale swim close enough for her to touch it—let alone knock her into the freezing water. Fortunately, cute newcomer David is there to save her, and the rescue leads to a bond deeper than Cara ever imagined.

But then she learns something about David that changes everything, and Cara is devastated. She turns to her best friend for support, but Rachel has changed. She’s suddenly into witchcraft, and is becoming dangerously obsessed with her new boyfriend….

Cara has lost her best friend, discovered that her soul mate is off limits, and has attracted the attention of a stalker. But she’s not completely alone. Her mysterious, gorgeous new friend Garren is there to support her. But is Garren possibly too perfect?


Halloween night, Cara woke often and thrashed about during nightmares filled with blonde witches, black-eyed demons, and sea monsters with giant white teeth. Seaside students had Friday off, but rather than staying in bed, she gave up the battle for rest while the sky was still black outside her bedroom window. She might be sleep-deprived, but she had big plans for the day.

He stepped closer to her. "I hadn't planned to get involved with you during the school year." He tapped her nose with his finger. "At first, I decided to wait until the summer to see if you were still interested. I knew you'd be leaving for college, so I figured if I moved to Seattle, I'd have time to try to win you over."

She couldn't believe she was hearing such magical - no - providential words.
