I fell in love with a mortal, promised her my heart and soul, but when it came time to give up my immortal life, I walked away and left her to die.

Cassius, the god of love, is cursed for his selfish mistakes by his own mother and left as a demigod with a quiver full of arrows and job to do: Fate one thousand mortal souls to make up for the one he left behind.


I can’t stop painting him, canvas after canvas, his broken reflection stares back at me with cracked marble skin and despair in those golden eyes.

Zarah copes with the darkness of her past by painting a colorful world that feels more real than the one she lives in. When Zarah’s paintings begin to come to life, she realizes that this handsome stranger and all the danger he brings with him are more than her imagination…they are her memories.  

“Fate didn’t do this to her, dear boy…you did.”

Cassius and Zarah are more deeply entwined then either of them could have imagined, and there is more than Fate’s plan standing in the way of their chance to discover the meaning of true love. 

A reimagining of Cupid with heart-pounding action and romance.

Insight: The Gift of Seeing Things You Cannot Change

Micah hates her ability to “see” things when she touches people: fears, loves, moments that shape their lives. She has no idea if what she sees has already happened, will happen, or is simply a hope that has settled in the other person’s mind. She’s terrified of relationships, holds on to guilt over the death of a classmate she saw in a vision, and has no idea what to do with the new things she’s seeing from Landon. She feels him falling in love with her, but Micah doesn’t do friends, much less relationships. And besides, she hardly knows the guy.

But the curious side of her…the side of her who has never let herself fall for anyone, wonders what it would be like to be with someone that way.

Enter a spooky history project about a tragedy from three-hundred years ago, and now she can’t stop her mind from imagining moving shadows in the woods around her house.
As her friendship with Landon grows, so does her trust to tell him about what she sees. His curiosity brings a lightness to her gift that she never imagined.

Suddenly, the visions of both herself and the people she cares about are turning deadly, and just as Micah and Landon race into action to prevent her dark visions from happening, they realize that they may be the cause.
