Sixteen year old Arelia LaRue lives in New Orleans where the music is loud, voodoo queens inhabit every street corner, and the ghosts are alive and well. Despite her surroundings, all she wants is to help her Grand-mere Bea pay the rent and save up for college.
When her best friend Sabrina convinces her to take a well-paying summer job at the infamous Darkwood plantation, owned by the wealthy LaPlante family, Arelia agrees.
However, at Darkwood strange things start to happen, and gorgeous Lucus LaPlante insists that he needs her help. Soon, the powers that Arelia has been denying all her life, come out to play and she discovers mysteries about herself that she could have never imagined.

Not sure if a teenager wrote it or not, but that's what this story reads like.
Very good book for its genre
This book is never boring, making you plunge into the lives of the main characters. You quickly get caught up in Arelia's discovery of her powers and how she feels about them... And you can't help but be drawn to the mysterious, old-fashioned Lucus... Add Sabrina, Arelia's rich friend and attention wanter, and you have all the sparks that you should need... But throw in a haunted plantation, New Orleans magic and a few more notable characters and you have a book that will want you reading more..!!
Great story but I'm extremely annoyed that suddenly it cuts off. There was no warning that this was a sample or preview. Horrible marketing ploy. I've taken note of the author and publisher and will never purchase anything from either.
