Summary: Seventeen-year-old Anastasia Lockhart has never led an easy life, but when she starts getting into serious trouble, she’s sent to live with her grandparents in Cedar Falls. The small, picturesque town hasn’t changed since she visited four years ago, with one exception – the presence of a handsome, mysterious boy named Frost. Despite warnings from her grandparents and friends to stay away from Frost, Anastasia can’t deny their attraction, and the more time they spend together, the deeper in love they fall. Unfortunately, Frost has a secret that is beyond Anastasia’s wildest imagination, and she soon finds herself in the midst of a supernatural legend that has haunted Cedar Falls for years. Can Anastasia and Frost’s love really overcome anything, or are their fates much darker?
Anastasia knew that her grandfather was being irrational, and it looked as if the situation would soon get out-of-control. In an attempt to prevent the impending fight, she hurried out of the car. Then suddenly, she stopped dead in her tracks.
The most gorgeous boy Anastasia had ever seen was coming out of Rural Mart, carrying a bulging bag of groceries. He was tall – at least six feet – and very well-built with broad shoulders and a straight posture. His striking, chiseled features and unruly dark brown hair gave him a unique appearance that was rugged and manly. Nonetheless, Anastasia sensed that he wasn’t that much older than her, and with heightened curiosity, she watched as an expression of concern washed over his face as he hurried to Mr. Stone’s side.
“My past is none of your business,” Mr. Stone snapped, finally getting as angry as Mr. Lockhart.
“Maybe not, but your shady business practices concern me and Rural Mart,” Mr. Lockhart shot back.
The two men stepped closer to each other, but before anyone could throw a punch, the boy placed his hand on Mr. Stone’s shoulder and urged him back. The boy said nothing; instead, he gave Mr. Stone a serious look.
Mr. Stone stared silently at the boy for a few seconds and then returned his attention to Mr. Lockhart. “Get out of my way, Fredrick,” he seethed, before taking leave of the situation.
The boy followed Mr. Stone, but before entering a truck marked Stone’s Hardware, he stopped to look at Anastasia, as if noticing her for the first time. His gaze was intense and unwavering, like he was savoring everything about her, from her eyes to her lips and even her very soul.
With a quickening pulse, Anastasia stared back at him. He was so undeniably sexy, but it was his eyes which made her breath catch in her throat. Shining a light shade of blue, they instantly drew her in and refused to let go. The sudden urge to get closer to him was so strong that she unconsciously took a step forward.
Anastasia turned around to see that her grandfather was already in the car, and from his expression, she easily guessed that he wasn’t happy with her.
“Stay away from that boy,” Mr. Lockhart ordered Anastasia as she entered the car.
“Grandpa,” she began, wanting to ask if he was alright after his encounter with Mr. Stone.
In response, Mr. Lockhart turned on the car radio and increased the volume.
Anastasia took the hint.
