About the Book 

Simon & Schuster, Simon Pulse
Hardcover, 10/28/14 ISBN: 1481411225

Three plantations. Two gifts. One ancient curse.

All her life, Barrie Watson has been a virtual prisoner in the house where she lives with her shut-in mother. When her mother dies, Barrie promises to put some mileage on her stiletto heels. But she finds a new kind of prison at her aunts South Carolina plantation insteada prison guarded by an ancient spirit who long ago cursed one of the three founding families of Watson Island and gave the others magical gifts that became compulsions.

Stuck with the ghosts of a generations-old feud and hunted by forces she cannot see, Barrie must find a way to break free of the family legacy. With the help of sun-kissed Eight Beaufort, who somehow seems to know what Barrie wants before she knows herself, the last Watson heir starts to unravel her familys twisted secrets. What she finds is dangerous: a love she never expected, a river that turns to fire at midnight, a gorgeous cousin who isnt what she seems, and very real enemies who want both Eight and Barrie dead.

    I would want to know what people want, it would make expectations of me clear and life so much easier. People are not always honest and that would eliminate guessing I would know what they expect or want and if I can give it to them or not. Thank you for hosting this awesome tour and giveaway!!!

  2. The power to read minds and maybe fly! Thank you for the awesome giveaway!

  3. I would want to be able to organize any space within seconds because I am such a mess!

  4. I would want to read emotions or read minds that way if somebody was upset you could try to cheer them up or know if people are lying to you when you ask what's wrong. Thanks for the giveaway!! :)

  5. I would want to teleport so that I could travel anywhere and help people.

  6. (This is Darith L.)

    The gift of flight because I want to fly!

  7. I would want the gift to read the first thought that a person have about me :D
