Amongst the New York elite and socialites, Schuylar Van Allen just doesn't fit in, nor does she want to. Even though there's no real reason why she doesn't. Afterall, she comes from a highly respected and well to do family, the Van Allen's - a family who, at one time or another, owned most of Manhattan Island. So what's standing in her way? Maybe the lack of highly priced designer threads, she prefers thrift store finds. Maybe it's not being surrounded by a group of people just because they make you look good, she prefers true friendship, the kind she has with Oliver.

Things suddenly start to change when Jack Force, the most popular guy around, starts flirting with her outside of a club. Jack Force has never even glanced in her general direction, let alone actually spoken to her. But from this point, a series of events moves Schuyler from the nobody list to the quasi-somebody list, and it all starts with an innocent invitation to The Committee's next meeting. Contrary to what Schuylar thinks, the Committee isn't just a group of New York's upper crust looking to take the world. They're Blue Bloods - age-old vampires who have, not only taken over all of Manhattan, but are one a mission to keep who, or rather, what they are under wraps.

That means ... Schuyler Van Allen is a blue blood (literally, at the age of fifteen or so Blue Bloods show the first outward signs of who they really are creatures that have actual blue blood pulsing through their bodies), and someone or something is hunting her. After being attacked by some creature, another Blue Blood she supposes, Schuyler finally believes in what she is. And seeks to find the truth of who she, the Blue Bloods, and this creature really is. With the help of Oliver, new-found friend Bliss, and quite possibly the irresistibly good-looking Jack Force, maybe she'll be the one to save the Blue Blood nation ... or maybe she won't.

Waiting.”

“She nodded... and was about to turn away. Then, as if she thought better of it, she reached out and grabbed his arm. "Jack."
"Yes?"
"I. . ." she faltered. She knew what she wanted to tell him, but she couldn't bring herself to say the words.
It turned out she didn't have to. Jack put a hand to his heart and nodded. "I feel the same way about you.”
