Lauren Jacobs is a journalist with amazing powers. Able to leap cranky receptionists in a single bound. She can simultaneously suck down a doughnut hole, drink a cup of coffee, add info to her iPad and shift gears in her car on the Chicago freeway during rush hour.

A reporter for the prestigious digital news journal Edition One, Lauren has won a number of journalist excellence awards. Her byline has made Edition One a digital news sensation, and her fiery exposés draw a huge readership.

Unfortunately, those exposés usually require her to have the ability to run very fast, meet impossible deadlines, and hope the police never, ever find out who her father is - a con man wanted on five continents, six if you count Australia.

A routine stop for morning coffee and doughnut holes gives her the story of her career and will send Chicago's "dirty" city officials to jail, and a fair number of mobsters into hiding.

With Chicago suddenly too hot for her to be safe, editor Garrett Modesto assigns her to a mundane story on crop circles in England during the rainy season. A nice boring story, until her editor's ex-Marine buddy, who happens to be a crop circle expert, turns up dead in a really ugly way. Lauren learns there just might be more to the crop circles then artwork in a wheat field. The boring story suddenly turns into a harrowing life or death race through England, a secret room at a Midwest Air Force base, and Washington, D.C.

In the midst of the chaos comes Derek Rourke, a reporter from the worst of the "yellow" tabloids - The Lens. The crop circles turn out to be evidence of a vibration frequency weapon being tested by a terrorist group, and Derek seems to be trying to "scoop" Lauren on this story of Pulitzer Prize winning proportions.

Although wrapped in a remarkably good-looking package, with twinkling green eyes, impossibly tantalizing dimples, and a sexy magnetism that drives her crazy. Rourke is the embodiment of politically incorrect and every chauvinistic statement ignites Lauren's temper.

As bullets rain down, crop circles multiply, earthquakes shake London and lightening strikes more then twice, they are forced into an uneasy and very untrusting partnership. With help from Lauren's con artist father and a few good Druids, they might just be able to save the world - if they don't kill each other first!
