Her sister soon joins the Sunshine Club, a group of beautiful, smart and powerful women who have committed themselves to Aralt,the spirit of a womanizing Duke. Megan and Alexis join, and soon become the women they are expected to be. Alexis changes herself, which angers Carter, however, using the guidance of Aralt, she manages to win him back.

Tashi is missing, and she later finds out she was murdered by Lydia. She finds out Kasey truly took the oath, as she lied before and was not a real member. Tashi, who turns out to be on Alexis' side, left clues for Alexis so Lydia cannot have her way, which was to murder everyone but herself so Aralt could be hers. She leads the oath, the one Tashi and the ghost at the ouija board indicated that she should use, and Aralt leaves every girl except for Lydia. As Megan attacks Alexis, she maims her already injured leg. Alexis plans to burn the sacred book and runs, but is cornered by Lydia. Lydia summons Aralt, thinking he loves her, and is killed by him. Alexis destroys the book, which banishes Aralt. All the other women in the world who relied on Aralt and became famous, now are all frauds, and the judge for the photo contest is fired.
