Cover of COMPULSION by Martina Boone

BOOK JACKET BLURB: All her life, Barrie Watson has been a virtual prisoner in the house where she lives with her shut-in mother. When her mother dies, Barrie promises to put some miles on her stiletto heels. But she finds a new kind of prison at her aunt’s South Carolina Plantation—a prison guarded by an ancient spirit who long ago cursed one of the three founding families of Watson Island and gave the others magical gifts that became compulsions.

Stuck with the ghosts of a generations-old feud and hunted by forces she can’t see, Barrie must find a way to break free of the family legacy. With the help of the sun-kissed Eight Beaufort, who knows what Barrie wants before she knows it herself, the last Watson heir starts to unravel her family’s twisted secrets. What she finds is dangerous: a love she never expected, a river that turns into fire at midnight, a gorgeous cousin who isn’t what she seems, and very real enemies who want both Eight and Barrie dead.
