Every student at the elite St. Joseph’s College in the UK is familiar with the two time-honored student associations, the Ravens, and the Lions. Their glamorous matching balls – the Matching Nights – are the stuff of numerous legends. Nineteen-year-old Cara isn’t actually interested in them at all. She has her hands full working two part-time jobs to pay for school. But when the Ravens unexpectedly offer her free housing, she doesn’t hesitate for long. Her acceptance in the association, however, is tied to one condition: At the next Matching Night, Cara has to take part in a competition with one of the Lions as her partner. If they win, she receives a scholarship that will put an end to Cara’s financial worries once and for all. When Cara finds out that her Matching Night partner will be Josh, the unapproachable son of the president of the United States, of all people, her emotions finally spin out of control. Hot sparks are already flying between her and Josh, even as Cara is increasingly drawn to her classmate Tyler.
Soon Cara notices that this is the least of her problems because much darker things are going on behind the scenes. What really happens at the extravagant balls thrown by the Ravens and Lions? And what is behind all the rumors about a girl who disappeared and hasn’t been seen since the last Matching Night?
