Rain is forbidden. As a matter of fact, any teen romance is quickly snuffed out by the Administration due to the high S.L.A.G. (symptomatic latent autistic gene) rate. But that isn’t going to slow Orion down. He wants Rain, and one way or another, he’s going to get her. The problem? She isn’t interested in the hunky new boy who struts into her Geography class right after an earthquake strikes Province A. New students are rare in the Provinces, and much to Rain’s dismay she must show him around for three long days.
But there’s much more to Orion than what meets the eye. The cocky boy has secrets, not only about his family but about Rain’s as well. When a romance finally develops, Rain and Orion must find a covert hiding place so the Administration’s prying eyes won’t find them. But will it work? The hedge gap seems the perfect place, until Orion mysteriously disappears, leaving only one cryptic clue. The letter K. Heartbroken, Rain feels the loss of Orion viscerally and is determined to find him. Eventually, after giving up on Orion, Rain settles into a normal routine with her new family, trying to forget about him.
But Rain soon discovers that she has the biggest secret of all, and if the Administration finds out, there is more at stake than just a teen romance. Left on her own, Rain must face the biggest decision of her life. There are only two paths to follow. Which one will she take?
Book 1 in the Blue Spectrum Chronicles will keep you tethered to your seat, waiting to turn each page to see what happens when a young couple bravely dares to fall in love at a time when it is strictly forbidden.

I stopped kicking.
The lights from the teen center cast a shiver of orange light on his face, and I couldn’t help but stare at the pure perfection of it.
Smudge cocked his head to the side, and still holding me, his lips lightly brushed against mine. I struggled to breathe, then, as his lips hungrily pressed harder, moving slowly and deliberately with such emotion and intention I couldn’t help matching his movements with my own, the blue mist of his eyes circling us together and swirling us around in a cloud that seemed about to burst.
Orion nodded his head up and down, his eyes gazing off into the darkness of the hedge, uncrossing his long legs and stretching them out in front of his body. “I know you might not believe me, especially after yesterday.” He was quiet again, his jaw clenching firmly, the muscles in it popping out like inverted rivers. I wanted to take invisible fingers and massage them back to normal. To take those same invisible fingers and with a click, make all of this disappear.
But there were no invisible fingers, and my stomach roiled into knots.
