After a devastating accident, Barret Atkins has accepted a quiet, solitary existence. His life is turned upside down, when he finds the badly injured Kansas Smith, left for dead in a case of mistaken identity. As Kansas begins to recover, Barret must face some deep scars of his own. When the couple begin to fall for each other, their lives spin into a revival of past hurts, jealousies, and betrayals, causing Barret to put a halt to their budding relationship.

Barret’s hesitation causes his best friend-turned vicious rival, Duncan Craig, to pursue a friendship with Kansas. Where will this leave Barret? Can they all hold on long enough to escape Kansas’s attacker, and will they ever conquer their own inner demons intent on keeping them apart.

Barret climbed onto the bed, and slid his arms around her, pulling her against his bare chest. “Don’t be afraid.” He kissed her hair. It smelled of lilacs and jasmine. He closed his eyes, he held her tight. “It’s okay, Kansas,” he murmured. “You’re safe, perfectly safe.”

"Aislin is cursed. A regular college student at night and a swan during the day, Aislin can only break the curse by finding her true love. But when her beloved discovers the truth, will his fear override their love? This modern adaptation of Swan Lake will help you discover what love really means."

~ Amazon ~ Amazon UK

The summer before we turned thirteen, Aislin and I got to spend a whole month away at camp. It was one of those all-purpose places that had a name worthy of Thoreau or a retirement home. The camp had something for everyone, from hiking to skits, but they stuck Aislin and me in different cabins and we rejoiced. Aislin was in Bunk 3 with Jill and Bekah, who taught her how to sail and talk to boys. I was in Bunk 9 with girls who wanted to try makeup and fawn over Derrick Ferrell. They traded diving lessons for eyeliner tips.

New friends aside, we couldn’t stand ignoring each other, so we ate dinner together and teamed up for canoeing. We once swapped bunks and would have gotten away with it if Aislin’s counselor hadn’t noticed that I had been cured of my hay fever.

Just after the Fourth of July, disaster struck. Aislin’s counselor pulled me aside to ask where she was. I hadn’t seen her and the same went for her friends and counselors. I headed to my bunk after dinner in case my sister turned up there.

Shortly after dark, Aislin started throwing rocks at my screen. I snuck out of the bunk and found her hiding behind a birch tree. She was crying and naked and promised to tell me everything if I could bring her some clothes and a tampon. I brought both of them without asking questions and while she got changed, I sought out Nina, her counselor.
Aislin told the higher-ups that she’d gone skinny-dipping on a dare and someone had swiped her clothes. Terrified that someone from camp would see her, she’d hidden in the woods until night. Nina was sympathetic to the awkward teenager, but skinny-dipping and going MIA were both against the rules. Aislin got kitchen duty for her infraction and got told that the next time, parents would be called.

Once we were alone, Aislin told me that she’d spent all day with wings and the conviction that she’d gone bonkers. I had no reason to doubt her, but I witnessed her transformation the next day to prove that it wasn’t a hallucination. After seeing my twin sister’s hands sprout feathers and watching her shrink to swan size, I’d wondered if I was bonkers too.

When Aislin went missing again, I knew exactly where to find her, but there was no way I was telling Nina. So I shrugged miserably and said I hadn’t seen her that day.

The camp director decided that both of us had problems with authority. My parents didn’t believe that, but they didn’t argue when we were asked to leave camp early.2-3 small snippets from your story
