Love, passion, danger, and betrayal amid the glitter of Manhattan . . .
As Melanie gazed into the golden pond of champagne, her reflection shimmered back at her in honey ripples.
Her reflection and another.
“Do you know the legend of Narcissus?” he asked.
It was a taunt, a reminder of her vanity.
Yesterday’s gentle early-morning moments in the park were a mirage, after all.
“I'm not admiring myself.”
“Neither was Narcissus. He was a twin. He and his sister looked very much alike. When she died he spent endless hours gazing at his reflection because it reminded him of her.”
“I always thought . . . wasn’t there something about a wood nymph named Echo?”
Charles smiled. “There are two versions of the myth. The mythologists are divided to this day.”
“Poor Narcissus. What a bad rap. Hard enough to be a twin.” Melanie spoke without thinking. Here she was, telling Charles Sinclair the truth again.
“Hard enough,” he agreed easily.
Brooke and Melanie Chandler are sisters, and twins. But they could not be more different. Brooke is a serious, driven, ambitious New York City prosecutor. Melanie is a golden, glamorous, sophisticated supermodel.
The twin sisters were close, once upon a time, until the realities of life - and their differences - tore them apart. They are living in Manhattan now, pursuing their careers and falling in love. There are complicated pursuits for both of them. And each woman is wondering, too, if the closeness she once shared with her twin might be possible again...or if jealousy, separation, bitterness, and betrayal have irrevocably shattered the bond.
The wishes of their hearts are perilous enough. But there is true danger for the sisters. An obsessed and brazen killer has them in his sights.
