Haunted by a childhood trauma that leaves her orphaned, eleven-year-old Grace finds herself on the doorstep of the Duncans, her new adoptive family, broken and unable to speak. Catapulted from a bustling New York City life, she must find a way to call the rural town of Sade, Iowa her new home. Twins Eisav and Jacob Duncan immediately take a liking to Grace, wanting to erase the dark shadows etched on her perfect features.

As the twins vie for her affection, it becomes clear which one makes her smile.

Grace never has a choice for falling in love.

What starts as a way to coax his adopted sister to speak and smile, blossoms into the kind of love that lasts a lifetime.

In this small town it shouldn’t be a crime to fall in love . . .

Isaac Duncan warns his son to stay away from the forbidden fruit. Eisav never listens.

Now an intricate web of lies and secrets stand in the way of Eisav winning back the only woman he has ever loved.

In a place where yesterday’s promises were broken, Eisav must learn what it truly means to love and cherish . . .

But is he too late?



4.5 shinning stars

I am not sure where exactly to start with my review. This story is about two you people who met when they were 13 and 11. But there was an instant need on Eisav's part to make Grace happy again. In reading the book you are watching them grow and flourish. Simply a breathtaking romance with years of entwined vines to hold it together.

The lies and deceit that they endure from what seems to be every angle they turn is unbelievable. What touched me the most was the love the shared for each other and the hope that they used as guidance to lead them to a future they wanted so badly. Sure the twists and turns in the road often felt like all the cards were stacked against them.

Can two young hearts prevail? Can they learn to put the past in the past and move forward as an united front in search of what truly makes them happy?

If you are looking for a quick read this might not be the one but if you want to get lost in a growing love that will hold you captive, turning the pages and hoping with everything for a happy ending, then this is your book.

As far back as R.C. Stephens can remember she was a sucker for a good romance. Of course there had to be a prince charming even if he ultimately was a dark knight and there had to be a happy ending.

She watched the movie Dirty Dancing way too many times growing up and Jean Claude Van Damme movies too. Go figure!

After years of saying she would write a book one day, she finally put pen to paper and carved out the plot line for what would eventually become the best selling Twisted Series. Now R.C. is just finishing up her seventh book and can't seem to stop the stories running through her mind.
