Rose has been waiting for years for Rob to kiss herand#8212;and when he finally does, itand#8217;s perfect. But then Juliet moves back to town. Juliet, who used to be Roseand#8217;s best friend. Juliet, who now inexplicably hates her. Juliet, who is gorgeous, vindictive, and a little bit crazy...and who has set her sights on Rob. He doesnand#8217;t stand a chance.andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt;Rose is devastated over losing Rob to Juliet. And when rumors start swirling about Julietand#8217;s instability, her neediness, and her threats of suicide, Rose starts to fear not only for Roband#8217;s heart, but also for his life.

Synopsis:

A thrilling retelling of the star-crossed tale of Romeo and Juliet, from the New York Times bestselling author of the Morganville Vampires series.

In the Houses of Montague and Capulet, there is only one goal: power. The boys are born to fight and die for honor and—if they survive—marry for influence and money, not love. The girls are assets, to be spent wisely. Their wishes are of no import. Their fates are written on the day they are born.

Benvolio Montague, cousin to Romeo, knows all this. He expects to die for his cousin, for his house, but a spark of rebellion still lives inside him. At night, he is the Prince of Shadows, the greatest thief in Verona—and he risks all as he steals from House Capulet. In doing so, he sets eyes on convent-bound Rosaline, and a terrible curse begins that will claim the lives of many in Verona…

…And will rewrite all their fates, forever.
