Having called on Cupid for some Valentine’s Day loving, Adara is more than a little surprised when Thor is thrown into her path. The prickly Senior rescues her after she runs her car off the road, and what she’d always thought was an intense dislike of her, turns out to be something more. Is it possible that Thor more than likes her? What’s a girl to do when the guy of her dreams suddenly takes notice?

I slowly walked back to my car, not really paying attention to where I was going, until I slammed into someone. Looking up, I realized too late that I’d unwittingly run into Thorvold Sokki, the one guy in school I wanted to avoid.
“Watch where you’re going, Adara,” he growled, lightning snapping in his eyes.
I’d always convinced myself it was a trick of the light, but there were times I wondered. I tipped my head all the way back to look into his stormy gray eyes, forcing myself not to flinch at the anger I saw in their depths.
“Sorry, Thor. I have a lot on my mind and wasn’t paying attention.”
He grumbled something and pushed past me.
With a sigh of relief, I walked over to my car, looking over my shoulder once. I was surprised to find him watching me, an intense look in his eyes. If only I knew what it meant. Thor wasn’t someone to toy with. While I didn’t think he’d ever hurt me, he also had a reputation at Waite Hills High, a bad one.
I unlocked my car and slipped inside, a shiver shaking my body from head to toe, and it didn’t have anything to do with the weather. After I started the car, I backed out of the parking space and headed home, anxious to get away from Thor and the odd feelings he always evoked in me. Dealing with my neurotic mother was better than dealing with Thor.
