Read an Excerpt

Chapter One

Passionate. that was how Colleen Belmont thought of herself Passionate was definitely good.

Tempestuous. That was how Tolliver Heath thought of her. He also thought she was volatile, unreasonable, and melodramatic. All of which were definitely bad.

As Tolliver pontificated to the staff of The Lakesider, the oh-so-imaginatively-named student newspaper of Lakeside High School, Colleen raised her index finger into the air. She knew Tolliver was watching her, because he was always watching her. The editor in chief had the world's hugest crush on Colleen, and everyone knew it.

He stopped mid-sentence. "Yes, Colleen?"

She smiled at him sweetly. Her loathing for him didn't show a bit. "Well, Tollie," she began, "remember our discussion at last week's editorial meeting about my proposed new paranormal phenomena column for the paper?"

"Yes, what of it?" Tollie resettled his glasses on his skinny nose. He was tall and so thin that his expensive clothes hung on his body as if it were a coat rack. No one had ever seen him in jeans. The entire newspaper staff had an ongoing betting pool -- a confirmed sighting of Tollie in jeans was worth fifty bucks.

So far, no one had come close to collecting.

Tolliver, or Tollie, as he insisted he be called, ran editorial meetings of the school paper like they were Strategic Air Command crisis strategy sessions for global thermonuclear war. Colleen was sure he had never cracked a joke in his entire life. And she seriously doubted he had actual bodily functions.

"Well, Tollie," Colleen went on sweetly, "I've taken the liberty of writing up a few samples of the column -- I'mthinking of calling it 'Beyond Reason'and I thought we could try one out in next week's issue of the paper." She got up and handed a few sheets of paper to Tolliver.

"That's a great idea!" Betsy Wu exclaimed. She was Colleen's best friend and the newspaper's sports reporter. "This school could stand a little excitement. I vote we give it a try."

Tolliver gave Betsy a contemptuous look. "Might I point out that you haven't even read the samples yet."

"They're Colleen's," Betsy said with a shrug. "She's the best writer on the paper, so they must be great. "

"And here I thought Celeste was the best writer on this paper," Brandon Marrow joked. He was a junior who covered music and dance.

"Please don't mention the Curls," Betsy said. "She's out sick, and I for one am thrilled with the reprieve."

"Might we stick to the subject at hand, people?" Tolliver asked.

"We might, Tollie, my man," Kevin Armour replied. "Colleen's idea is great. I say we go for it."

Colleen smiled radiantly in Kevin's direction.

Big mistake. Tollie's nostrils twitched. That was never good.

I You know you can never, ever show attention to any other guy in front of Tolliver, Colleen admonished herself, even if Tollie knows you are going out with the guy to whom you're showing allention, because Tolliver's maggot-size ego can't take the comp.

And she wouldn't have slipped up if it hadn't been for the fact that she knew Kevin actually detested her paranormal column idea. She'd just been completely surprised when he'd publicly supported it anyway.

Colleen and Kevin had been a couple for almost a year. Kevin's parents were both involved in the theater, and they had moved to Milwaukee from their home in New York City to do a year-long residency at the University of Wisconsin's Milwaukee campus and to work at Milwaukee Repertory Theatre. Kevin was much more interested in photography-he was the number-one news photographer for the Lakesider.

Even Betsy, who had been brutal on all of Colleen's previous boyfriends (of whom there had been exactly three since seventh grade), thought they made a great couple. Lots of people said Kevin resembled the tennis player Peter Sampras. He had Sampras's thick, curly, dark hair; electric, dark eyes; and easy, open grin. He habitually had a camera, and sometimes two, around his neck, and was forever telling Colleen that what he cared about was what was, not what might be. That was woo-woo stuff, as he called it. He was the ultimate skeptic.

Colleen, on the other hand, was, if not the ultimate believer, at least the ultimate in open-mindedness. Her Ouija board had been her favorite Christmas gift when she was ten, and she used the same board now to commune with what she called "Other Worlds."

She had the classic petite Irish good looks of her mother, who had come to the United States from Dublin as a little girl. Her bright-red, wavy hair was her trademark-it reached down nearly to the bottom of her back. Her skin was pale and beautiful, her eyes were an intense shade of blue, and she was famous for the antique pins she collected from garage sales and thrift shops.

Colleen loved to write, especially about movies. Her goal was to replace Roger Ebert as the movie critic at the Chicago Sun-Times. She was pretty confident she could do it, too.

So was everyone else.

What she wasn't confident about was whether or not she could get through high school without strangling Tolliver Heath's scrawny chicken-skinned neck. He was utterly, royally, dictatorial and unfair. She hated that.

Tolliver sighed. "Colleen, this is a school newspaper, not a tabloid supennarket scandal sheet full of made-up supernatural garbage."

"My column would not be supernatural garbage, as you so eloquently put it, Tollie," Colleen retorted. She could feel herself getting angrier, the color rising to her cheeks.

Chill, she told herself. You've worked so hard to keep your temper in check lately. You can do it, you can do it, you can do it. You know you can do it...

    Wow What a book

    This book was so good I coulddn't put it down the whole time I was reading it. I usually don't go for this kind of book I like suspence, but this was an amazingly well written book that was both suspenceful and fun to read, the charecters were strong. I really reccomend any book in the Enchanted Hearts series.

    A true love story!!!

    I really enjoyed this book. It portrays how true love can over come anything. It shows how it's ok for people to test relationships in order to be sure that they are right. It keeps you on the edge of your seat, wanting too know what happens next so bad that you say up half the night to finish it.
