She feels an unmistakeable connection to him through all three books.

Jenny is first seen in the first book, walking down the street to buy a game for her boyfriend Tom, as it is his birthday. Two men, described as the 'tough guys' are following Jenny, so she enters an unusual shop, with a door saying, "More Games." This confuses Jenny, but she enters anyway. Someone speaks to her, and she turns around to find a beautiful boy talking to her. Jenny is dumbfounded, so the boy speaks to her again, saying, "Can I help you?" Jenny likes the boy and thinks his eyes are very blue. Jenny tells him that she is buying a game for her boyfriend Tom. Jenny says that she needs a game that lots of people can play, as there will be about seven people at Tom's pool party that Jenny is organizing. The boy gives her a game, "Mystery, Danger and Seduction", which he reveals is titled, "Temptation". Jenny buys the game, but things go quickly from a night of fun and friendship to one of terror and obssessive love for Jenny and her friends. Julian reigns as Prince of The Shadows...and that is only the beginning.
