Life should be good for Maddie Graves and Nick Winters. The only thing standing in the way of their happiness is stubbornness and doubt.
After surviving an ordeal that almost claimed Maddie's life, and admitting his true feelings (at least to himself), Nick is at a crossroads. He has a girlfriend to break up with, and a move to make. Both tasks are giving him fits.
Maddie is happy to be alive, and thrilled to have her best friend back. She's also panting after Nick - and the early summer heat wave isn't helping matters. Every new encounter is steamy, and every touch is a promise of forever.
When death returns to Blackstone Bay, Maddie's special abilities have her chasing another mystery. Nick is going along for the ride, even though he's afraid for her safety. He knows what he wants, and he's ready to claim the life he's always yearned for. He just has to muster the courage to tell Maddie how he feels.
There's an enemy stalking Nick and Maddie, though, and they're going to have to embrace "together" before they can sample forever.
