Everyone assumes that Joelie Baudelaire lives a charmed life. She has a generous benefactor in Warren Jardine, and a glamorous lifestyle in the exciting city of Las Vegas. Everyone is wrong.

When Warren is arrested, Joelie has the ability to escape the emotional jail he's held her captive in for two years. Her father's house should be her refuge, but it's another kind of prison altogether. All Joelie wants is a normal, peaceful life. Discovering that she is one of The World Elite, a genetically superior race, puts a whole new set of shackles on her life.

Her destiny is planned, and her future marriage is pre-arranged. While Joelie still remembers her childhood crush on the Elite, Sender Stelle, it isn't easy to accept a betrothal to a man she barely knows beyond his photograph.

Warren doesn't want to release his control over her. The World Elite would force her to fulfill her destined duty, and Sender has gone from resigned acceptance to benign co-operation with the powers that be.

Freedom is just out of reach. All Joelie must do is defy some of the most powerful people in the world, and survive.

She had been second guessing everything about the past two years, just like Sender had guessed. Warren was controlling, possessive, jealous, and untrusting. He rarely let her out of his sight, and he always knew where she was. It was leading her to believe her parents, and some of her friends, were on to something when they held their ground that he was simply not good for her, and she needed to get away from him.

What she didn’t understand was that if Warren had some mystical power over her, then why had she never been in love with him as he wanted her to be? She had too many questions running through her mind. If her grandmother or her father didn’t uphold this psychotic theory, and give her some form of proof, she would insist that Sender be seen by a professional.

Hours later, Joelie awoke startled, gasping from the distressed dream she’d had. She sat straight up, searching every corner of the large dim room to find it empty. The sun was just starting to rise, causing the pale grayish-blue hues across the sky.

She was nearly panting from her labored breathing. She’d had another Sender dream with puzzling messages and mysterious meanings that seemed to cause anxiety, night after night. This time, she had woken up in the dream with Sender sitting on the bed. She was so startled that she woke up for real. There was no question that their conversation from a few hours ago had instigated the dream, as he was the last thing she was thinking about before she finally fell asleep.

It was disturbing, just the same. The reoccurring Sender dreams were severely unsettling, even though there was nothing threatening about them. Since the day they met, he’d been in her dreams, promising safety and protection. Tonight, however, it had taken a more intimate turn. He was just about to kiss her when she woke up within her dream to find him sitting beside her, causing the alarm that actually did wake her.
