Aurora Keys has dreamed of the Vanderlind Castle ever since she was a little girl. But the fiercely private Vanderlinds keep the massive structure strictly off limits to visitors. Until one night, the wealthy family throws a party, and Aurora's best friend, Blossom, devises a foolproof plan for the two of them to sneak in . . . At first, everything goes smoothly-but then the handsome Jessie Vanderlind sweeps Aurora into his arms, crushing her to his chest and whispering, "I knew you'd come back to me." Aurora understands it is a case of mistaken identity, but she feels connected to him somehow. And the boy is so beautiful, she believes she would be happy if he never let her go. However, once Jessie realizes he is mistaken, his smile quickly changes to a scowl. "You must leave," he tells her in a low, urgent voice. "Immediately. Come! I'll find a way to get you out." Unbeknownst to Aurora and Blossom, they have snuck into the home of one of the most prestigious vampire families in the world, and it is doubtful the two young women will ever be allowed to leave. Aurora's resemblance to Jessie Vanderlind's lost love just may be the only thing keeping them alive.
