Not welcome . . .
Stacy Storm has hit rock bottom.
Once a world-renowned psychic with a top-rated television show, he's lost both his credibility and his career after he was exposed as a fraud.
And once a New Yorker with a plush Manhattan apartment to showcase his success, he's taken refuge in a notorious "murder mansion" in the genteel village of Bonfire Beach, South Carolina.
No one wants him out in the world.
And no one wants him in Bonfire Beach, either.
All he has left is his own determination to prove that he's not a fake, and thus reclaim the life he once had - but in doing so, he'll lose the few people who think he's worth more without it.
Now he has to choose between those he loves . . . and those he hates.
It should be an easy decision, but nothing has ever been easy for Stacy - especially when it comes to them. They are the only ones who can give him what he wants. And yet the price they demand is way too high: his very soul.
All Stacy has ever yearned for is a place to belong. He figures he's been around enough to decide for himself where that is, and he resents anyone who tries to change his mind. But then he discovers that nothing - and no one - is nearly as black and white as it seems. And everything he thought he knew really isn't so clear after all.
Sometimes that's a good thing.
Sometimes it's bad.
Sometimes only time will tell.
And sometimes only they will.

Not like the others . . .
Bonfire Beach, South Carolina. The exclusive beachfront community is old money, the best of everything, and its genteel residents don’t take kindly to those who aren’t like them.
And to say that Stacy Storm isn’t like them is an understatement.
For one thing, he’s a disgraced reality TV star and tabloid fodder.
For another, he’s a world-renowned psychic proven to be a fraud - at least in part.
For a third, he’s moved into the notorious McClean mansion - the very mansion whose relevance in Bonfire Beach history all would prefer to forget.
And that’s just what the people of Bonfire know about.
From childhood on, Stacy has been different. Neglected by his mother and bullied by his peers, he learned in his teens that he is, in fact, very much wanted in another realm, of which very few others are even aware. His gift is a double-edged sword, bringing him validation and approval by way of a daily nightmare that stars only Stacy - and them.
He hates them. He fears them.
He needs them.
And he's in Bonfire Beach to find them.
This is the beginning.
