Jessica is a normal high school teenager, stressing more about the prom than homework, about whether she should 'do it' with her boyfriend... or at least when is going to suggest it? and then suddenly there's someone new on the scene. Someone tall, dark and mysterious. Someone she is drawn to and repelled by. As Jessica tries to sift through her confused adolescent feelings, the reason for the stranger's appearance is revealed. Jessica isn't who she thought she was, and Lucius is the man to whom she was betrothed at birth, in a country far away, and to an inheritance she is too bewildered and frightened by to claim. Finally, can Jessica shun everything she thought she was and become the person her destiny says she should be?
