What do a mysterious necklace, forbidden Blood Magic rituals, and a sarcastic Nocturne boy with the face of a fallen angel all have in common?

Me, apparently.

Since I started school at Nocturne Academy, strange happenings have befallen me. The weird key-shaped necklace I found at a flea market chokes me every time I try to take it off. Also, a tall, beautiful, and bitingly sarcastic Nocturne has the lock that matches it.

His name is Griffin Darkheart, and—like this freaking necklace—I can’t seem to stay away from him, though he’s being Censured for mysterious crimes. Among a student body composed of vampires, witches, were-dragons, and fairies, I no longer know what my future holds.

To heck with graduating with honors. I’m just hoping to graduate alive. Nocturne Academy is full of deadly dangers.

And I’ve already got a target on my back…

EXCERPT:
“I wanted it to do a spell called The True Heart Revealed, all right?” I said at last, unable to hold out any longer. “I wanted to know your true intentions towards me before I decided if I should meet you Saturday night or not.”

“Is that so?” To my surprise, Griffin didn’t seem angry or upset about this at all.

“Yes, that’s so,” I snapped. “So now I guess you want this back.” I held out the strand of blue-black hair in the palm of my hand. “So you can keep me from doing the spell.”

“Why would I want that?” Griffin asked, looking honestly mystified. “Actually, I think it’s a really good idea—doing the True Heart spell, I mean,” he clarified when I gaped at him. “And if you do find out my true intentions, please—let me know,” he added. “They’re a mystery to me as well.”

“What? How can you say that?” I demanded. “How can you not know how you feel about me?”

“Oh, I know how I feel about you.” Taking my hand, he drew me to the side of the hallway and looked down into my eyes intently. “I want to be with you every moment, Megan. I want to touch you and look at you and smell your sweet scent. And I wish, most of all, to protect you, no matter what the consequences.”

He cupped my face in his palm and gently stroked along my cheek with the pad of his thumb.

“I even feel the urge to protect you from myself,” he murmured. “Which is doubtless why I am warning you against coming to see me. It is… confusing.”

His cool touch sent a shiver down my spine and I felt like I was drowning in his pale, gorgeous eyes.

“Griffin…” I whispered and then I didn’t know what else to say.

“I have wanted all those things—to be near you, to protect you—almost from the moment I met you, my little witch,” he murmured. “But I don’t understand why.”
