Twenty-year-old Anna Marie was just fired for the third time. She looks like a Goth girl to the extreme, her shock of white hair contrasting her head-to-toe black garb. She's all alone in Jackson, Mississippi, having left her hometown and her crazy strict aunt when Anna Marie accidentally put her boyfriend, Cody, in a coma as they made out. She destroyed both of their lives with a kiss. Her skin, her touch, is death. Then she meets otherworldly James and everything changes. Even though James is secretive about his past, Anna Marie learns he's on the run. To elude his mysterious and dangerous family, James changes his name to Touch and then christens Anna Marie, Rogue. They are harried and hunted, danger at their heels. Rogue must decide if she'll unleash her devastating powers once more in order to save the only man alive who seems truly to understand and accept her.
