Having lost her mother and brother, Stella stands on the roof of her building, about to jump. She is stopped by a handsome young man, who jumps first. Somehow, he survives and Stella soon discovers that Conner holds a dark secret and more than a passing connection to her own unhappiness. 
But Conner isn’t the only man to take an interest in Stella. Will is dangerous. He has mood swings, a crazy older brother and the ability to heal abnormally quickly. Stella knows what Conner is, but what exactly is Will – and why does he appear to know more about Conner than she does?

This short story tells the tale of two friends who fall for the wrong guys with devastating consequences. Madison doesn’t like her best friend’s creepy new boyfriend Adam at all. Initially, she considers his friend Rob equally disturbing, but soon finds herself wondering if there is more to him than she first thought.

By Halloween, Madison will know if Rob's attentions are a treat or a hideous trick.
