A scandalous case of mistaken identities, sensuous love scenes, and the razor-sharp wit fans expect from Van Dyken (Summer Nights) combine in this fast-paced romance. When Julian Tennyson falls into a coma after a car accident, his father suggests that Julian’s twin brother, Bridge, impersonate him in order to maintain the public image of their company, Tennyson Financial, of which Julian is vice president. Though Bridge detests his father and has not seen his brother in years, he agrees to the plan in exchange for $2 million. But keeping up the ruse proves more challenging than expected when he begins developing feelings for his brother’s fiancée, Isobel, who isn’t aware of the switch. Before the accident, Isobel planned to call off her engagement to workaholic Julian, but the man who returns from the hospital is far more caring than the one who went in. Isobel begins to hope that they can make their relationship work after all, unaware that her reawakened feelings are for the wrong brother. Van Dyken balances this outlandish premise with genuine emotion and plenty of passion. This steamy series opener is a true page-turner for readers willing to check disbelief.
