When Rain falls for the arcane boy who collects dead animals, his powers don't just bind them together in love, they're slowly killing her.
Xavier Dean collects dead animals. He intimidates everyone in town, but Rain Harper is the only one gutsy enough to approach him. She’s intrigued with his unnatural, green eyes and palpable, dark presence. Drawn in by the warmth that alerts her whenever Xavier’s near, she befriends him despite the fearful rumours surrounding his name. When she begins to sense his heart's reaction toward her, Rain finds herself falling in love with him.
While neither of them know what Xavier is or where his numerous abilities come from, they suspect he’s the source of their growing, unearthly addiction for each other. After all, it’s not normal to feel your heart literally reaching for another. Their world is shattered when they find out the reason for this craving: Xavier’s presence is draining the life from her.
Now Rain and Xavier must fight the urge to be together…even though their hearts won’t quit.
