For feisty Cassandra Reed, her strange ability to see people for who they really are, to see right through their facade, makes it difficult for her to like anyone. As if that isn't bad enough, she has to deal with constantly arguing parents and a sister who is always in flight. However, in an unfortunate series of events, Cassandra meets a "Good Samaritan" who kidnaps her in his way of helping her. In the house he takes her to, she immediately dubs him and the other people living with him as lunatics when they claim to be vampires. According to Cassandra, vampires belong in the fantasy world with Buffy.

Unfortunately, the house is not able to contain both Gabe, Cassandra's "savior", and Cassandra, who are constantly fighting with each other. It is in this house that Cassandra realizes that her strange ability is much more than a sixth sense. It is also in this house that she discovers a new ability of hers which made itself known through physical contact with Gabe. Unknowingly to Cassandra, she is linked to Gabe's dreadful past and the two archenemies both share one common enemy who is out to get them. Will Gabe and Cassandra stop this foe? Will their passionate hate for each other blossom into passionate love? And will stubborn Cassandra accept the fact that Gabe and the others are really what they say they are?
