I've learned that not everything is what it seems. If you start to look too close, you uncover things people don't want you to see. It's why I hide. It's why no one knows the real me. But he sees me. He sees the darkness in my heart but he's not afraid, because he's like me. They say opposites attract, but we're proof that like-and-like are a far more potent combination. Novalee Clarke is hiding from a past she wants to leave behind, and Jacen Kensington is running from his. The thing about hiding and running is eventually the thing you're trying to escape catches up to you. And when it does? It changes everything.
