Jarrod Thornton is mesmerizing,
but Kate Warren doesn't know why.
The moment the new guy walks into the room, Kate senses something strange and intense about him. Something supernatural. Her instincts are proven correct a few minutes later when, bullied by his classmates, Jarrod unknowingly conjures up a freak thunderstorm inside their classroom.
Jarrod doesn't believe in the paranormal. When Kate tries to convince him that he has extraordinary powers that need to be harnessed, he only puts up with her "hocus pocus" notions because he finds her captivating. However, the dangerous, uncontrolled strengthening of his gift finally convinces Jarrod that he must take Kate's theories seriously. Together, they embark on a remarkable journey -- one which will unravel the mystery that has haunted Jarrod's family for generations and pit the teens against immense forces in a battle to undo the past and reshape the future.

"You don't know the lord, my lady. If he found out you had no one to tend to your bath, it'll be our hides that bear the brunt of his anger."....
"Glenys," I start, for she's obviously the one who makes the decisions. "The reason my lady is so close to tanning your hides herself, is that she likes to attend my bath personally... and, well, privately." I smile, find Kate's eyes, which have grown huge, and add, "We are newly married, after all."....
They leave and Kate spins on me. "You enjoyed that, didn't you?" I laugh and toss her a rough towel. "Allow me to be your chivalrous knight. You go first." She stares at me for a long moment, waiting. "What?" She begins waving at me. I get the message and turn around.
