In the breathtaking Blue Ridge Mountains, Ash Grove High School for the Performing Arts draws the brightest and most talented teens. But beneath the peaceful surface, supernatural forces are at work…
Available in ebook and paperback. In book one, The Shadow and the Rose, ordinary Ash Grove junior Joy Sumner never expected a classmate’s dare to bring brooding teen model Tanner Lindsey into her life. Falling in love with Tanner can only lead to heartache and danger, because his mentor is the seductive, powerful Melisande, a seemingly ageless supermodel who may not be entirely human.
While Joy fights to free Tanner from Melisande’s grasp—and from his own self-doubt—she struggles to cope with her father’s cancer and the discovery that her school crackles with paranormal energy. When Tanner’s love for her puts him in danger, Joy must find the strength to confront both supernatural danger and her own unexpected pregnancy… and to save Tanner’s life.
