For seventeen years, Samantha Marquet has lived with the feeling someone is watching. Everywhere she goes. Until the night she comes face to face with a stranger - her Shadow Watcher - and everything changes....
Now they must work together to protect the past, and save her future.
Her past was a lie. Her present is suspect. Now, The Future is coming for her….
Samantha Marquet knows she’s being watched. What she doesn’t understand is why. After living with the sensation for seventeen years, sometimes she wonders if it’s all in her mind.
Until the night her Shadow Watcher steps across her path, turning her world upside down.
Recognizing his presence immediately, Sam isn’t afraid; she wants answers. But, the handsome stranger doesn’t give her any in their cryptic exchange. When he vanishes again, Sam is left with more questions than ever.
Before his motive is revealed, those the Shadow Watcher is sworn to protect Sam from move to strike. He appears again, in time to save her from a dangerous man. Only, this time Sam witnesses the attack, triggering a memory of seeing him once, before the watching began. At her father's funeral.
And, he hasn't aged a day in the seventeen years since.
With enemies Sam never knew existed closing in, her guardian is forced to reveal his oath to protect the Marquet family, their heirs and the secret they’ve kept safe for centuries. The secret holding the key to his youth – Sam’s inheritance. Something so precious, the most powerful men to live on Earth are willing to risk anything to possess it.
As those fighting to gain control of her inheritance threaten those she loves most, Sam is thrown into a world her parents went to great lengths to shield her from. A world where what seems impossible today is already possible tomorrow.

Book Two: A Shadow in Doubt
Accepting the Society in the Shadow of Civilization as a part of her world, Samantha Marquet knows one thing for certain: what seems impossible today is already possible tomorrow. Returning to her life in Novica, however, reminds her how much else remains in question.
Torn between the man who dedicated his life to protect her and the boyfriend who claims to love her, but, may be working with the enemy, Sam focuses on living as if she has no knowledge of the Marquet family's secrets, the Society, or the danger closing in on her. The Future depends on it.
If only The Future would leave her alone.
A summons to the Society's hidden lair forces Sam back into close quarters with her Shadow Watcher, and a prisoner with connections to his past. While stuggling with moral decisions being made by the Council, Sam also confronts the captive Traveler, who shares disturbing information about the U.C.E.'s plans. Information implying the Marquet family has long been misguided by the one they trusted most....
