Savannah Colbert has never known why she's so hated by the kids of the Clann. Nor can she deny her instinct to get close to Clann golden boy Tristan Coleman. Especially when she recovers from a strange illness and the attraction becomes nearly irresistible. It's as if he's a magnet, pulling her gaze, her thoughts, even her dreams. Her family has warned her to have nothing to do with him, or any members of the Clann. But when Tristan is suddenly everywhere she goes, Savannah fears she's destined to fail.
For years, Tristan has been forbidden to even speak to Savannah Colbert. Then Savannah disappears from school for a week and comes back…different, and suddenly he can't stay away. Boys seem intoxicated just from looking at her. His own family becomes stricter than ever. And Tristan has to fight his own urge to protect her, to be near her no matter the consequences….

When Savannah is suddenly dropped by all her friends and new husband, Tristan, in the fourth grade, it feels like her world is ending. She gets no explanation or warning and in the space between one day and the next she goes from popular to ridiculed.

High school is no different. The kids in the Clann who were once her closest friends still tease and torment her, shout names and make life intentionally difficult for her. Except Tristan. Tristan pretends she doesn’t exist, which somehow feels even crueller.

But things are changing for Savannah. When a bad case of what she thinks is the flu leaves her bedridden, only her estranged father can clue her in. She is a half vampire, and is going through the change. And her change comes with some rules. Don’t make eye contact, unless she wants people to become obsessed with her. Keep clear of the Clann kids. And under no circumstances should she go anywhere near Tristan.

Too bad some rules are meant to be broken…

Told in alternating view points between Savannah and Tristan, this book is a great new twist in the YA market. Crave is a paranormal Romeo and Juliet tale of forbidden love, defying parents and growing up. The first in a brand new series that is sure to be an amazing hit!
