Read an Excerpt

Maggie had the foolish notion that as long as he held her, she'd be safe. She had never had safe. She had control. Or she would have as soon as she pulled herself together, repaired the damage.

"I'm fine...now," she whispered to the top button of Beau's shirt.

Beau barely heard her whisper, but the quiet words etched themselves on his heart all the same. He knew her eyes would write her need on his soul, but he tucked a finger under her chin and lifted her face to his anyway.

"Is it so terrible?" he asked softly, the backs of his fingers trailing along her neck.

She swallowed. "Wh-what?"

"Being this close to the enemy."

"You're not--"

"Good. I'm glad." His gaze lingered on her soft, open mouth. "I don't kiss women who think I'm the bad guy."

Beau waited for his words to sink in, waited for Maggie to pull away. When she didn't, he lowered his lips to hers.

Oh, I almost feel old because I remember reading the series when I was in 6th grade. I had every single book and was always so excited with each new release to see what the twins would do next. Don't know what happened to my collection - but I am just as excited today as I was over 20 years ago to collect this series 'again' for my 6th grade daughter. The books bring up some important issues for impressionable girls and teach great life lessons while 'keeping it clean' Of course, there is a good twin and a 'bad' twin to represent that everyone has a choice to do the right thing and the consequences when choosing to do wrong.
