After a traumatic experience at home in Chicago, sheltered Daisy Lock visits her aunt and uncle, believing she is safe in their country home. Until a favor is asked. Dark, mysterious Christian Stone is turning twenty-one and needs a date for the sinister birthday ball. Daisy is the only one who can deliver. As Christian’s birthday nears, strange things occur…horrific things. The town of Golden Hills, IL doesn’t celebrate twenty-first birthdays like other towns.
An aching attraction to Christian forces Daisy to consider leaving everything behind, no matter the cost. And the cost is high. Christian fights darkness that craves his soul, but not his heart. Fate has been set long before Daisy was born. Secrets and lies have created her false life.
Time is ticking. Will she get out in time or forever be part of the Golden Hills legacy?
