New Coventry, Virginia is a quiet, peaceful town. The people are friendly, the streets are safe, and hardly anything ever happens until the mysterious Jayne family moves into the creepy old house in Dinwiddie Hills and begins pedaling medical miracles in the form of hypnotism and New Age medicine. Something about the Jaynes and their handsome, inscrutable sons, Van and Sable, is not quite right.
Still reeling from the tragic death of her mother, Aurora Geller feels like something is missing in her life, and the Jaynes might be the solution. But when she meets Sable and runs into his terrifying brother, Van, Sable warns her away from his family. By then, it's already much too late. She can't stop thinking about Sable and the strange, breathless feeling she gets whenever he is near. She just wants to be close to him, and she isn't going to let him stop her. When she starts seeing Mariah Jayne to treat her depression, she hardly notices when she begins to change. Sable does, and he'll do anything to keep Aurora away from his mother.
Then the bizarre deaths begin, and Aurora begins to suspect the Jaynes aren't exactly as they seem. She's right. They're monsters. The police might be baffled by the freak accidents, but there is something sinister about these deaths, and the Jaynes aren't the only suspects. Sable is trying to discover the killer and stop the deaths, but he is sidetracked by the human girl he can't stop thinking about and who loves him despite his secrets. Though they're forbidden from being together, Sable and Aurora are in love, but they must stop the monster responsible for the deaths, hide from a malicious Van, and escape his parents before one or both of them is killed or they are torn apart forever.
