Lizzie Nichols has a problem, and it isn't that she's blowing her college graduation money on a trip to visit her long-distance boyfriend Andy in London.
She just can't keep anything to herself, including her indignation at finding out her beloved boyfriend wasn't completely faithful to her during their separation. She's now out on the streets with no money and a non-changeable airline ticket home for exactly a month away.
Fortunately, Lizzie's best friend, Shari, comes to the rescue. She's spending the summer in the South of France catering weddings in a romantic sixteenth century chateau, and she's able to sort Lizzie out with a job. One glimpse of the gorgeous Chateau Mirac, not to mention the equally gorgeous son of the owner, and Lizzie is hooked.

When Lightning Strikes
When Lightning Strikes by Meg Cabot
Just because her best friend wants to exercise, Jessica Mastriani agrees to walk the two miles home from their high school. Straight into a huge Indiana thunderstorm -- and straight into trouble.
Not that Jess has never been in trouble before. Her extracurricular activities, instead of cheerleading or 4-H, include fistfights with the football team and monthlong stints in detention -- luckily, sitting right next to Rob, the sexiest senior around. But this trouble is serious.
Because somehow on that long walk home, Jessica acquired a newfound talent. An amazing power that can be used for good...or for evil.
