Vie had no idea when she descended into the small town of Newcastle, Wyoming that she’d find herself mesmerized by the mysterious and alluring eyes of one Carter Stone. And Carter believed he knew everyone that lived in his rural town until the day he locked eyes with Vivian Thorne. He couldn’t help but wonder what was different about this girl he had known all of his life.
He was right, Vie was the beautiful young Guardian that had been sent to their world looking for Carter and she did so merged in the vessel of the Thorne girl. Their meeting sparks a passionate romance between the two and soon after they embark on their journey to uncover the secrets of a past that they begin to realize they both shared. Their forbidden connection unleashes a war with disapproving parties and the lovers find themselves on a mission to uncover the truth of their not wholly human existence and their unbreakable bond. Darkness falls as Lucian returns to settle a score with them and their lives take a thrilling and terrifying turn. The only way for Carter to stop Lucian and save the one he holds most dear is to unlock the secrets of his past and unleash the powers within him. What are the chances that two raindrops, flung from the heavens, will merge on a windowpane? Gotta be fate!
When Vie and Carter set out to complete their mission, neither could have ever imagined being separated from each other.
Vie is feeling completely alone in The Gates, just barely going through the motions. Gabriel, her closest friend, tries to distract her with the news of a possible traitor in their own backyard. While Vie longs to be back on Earth with her love, she knows the danger that this traitor could bring, and sets her mind to drawing them out to protect the people she loves.
Carter is left alone on Earth clinging to the empty vessel that used to contain his love, unable to let go and move on. Carter starts putting the events of the past few weeks together and realizes something more is going on.
All the while Lucian is working up a plan to keep Vivian’s soul and get everything he's always wanted, including revenge against Vie and anyone she’s ever loved.
With both Vie and Carter working to find out what is going on in their respective worlds and defeat Lucian, will they ever be able to find their way back to each other?
