Imagine that every sixteen years, you died and started over, with no memory of the past. Could true love ever find you? Only if it were immortal.

In 1915, a coven of vampires attacked the town of Fairville, MA, the disappearances making headlines. Sixteen-year-old Lundy Guillory and the boy who loved her, Harlan Wallace, discovered the culprits, so the vampires devised a cruel punishment: Lundy was cursed to die and be reborn every sixteen years, each time retaining no memory of her past lives. Harlan was turned into a vampire, so that, immortal, he would be tortured with the task of finding her again in every new life, and telling her their story. Over ninety years later, Lundy Lawson and her parents move into Fairville, one month before her sixteenth birthday, with desperate hopes that the doctors there will be able to help Lundy, whose health has been diminishing steadily.

But Lundy begins to have strange dreams. First there seems to be a ghost in the library, trying to reach her; then a stranger shows up at her window at night - Harlan, unearthly, impossibly pale and sharp-teethed, and madly in love with her. It's Lundy's first lifetime back in the town where it all began, and this time she and Harlan have their chance to break the vampire's curse.

Reviews:on Vamp Chix:

"I liked this story for the cursed love story that it was. I rooted for Lundy to find a way to stay alive this time."

on Kat's Book Buzz / Goodreads:

"This is an original addition to the vampire genre, with enough action and intrigue to keep me turning the pages."

on Rather Barefoot Than Bookless:

"This was such a great vampire story! One of the better I've read actually . . . it had it all, suspense, romance, a little bit action and drama."
