Karen & her adopted son are flown to Israel by Hal's father so that Hal can meet his son in case he doesn't make it. this meeting gives Hal an incentive to live & he is LIVID when he finds out what Kirsty did. I don't want to give it all away, but there is a HEA!
FROM THE BACK COVER: He had robbed her of everyone she loved

To Karen Aylward, newspaper magnate Hal Chissolm was a monster. He'd refused to marry Kirsty, her pregnant twin sister, so that Kirsty had given up their son at birth--to be adopted by Karen.

Then Kirsty was fatally injured in a terrorist attack. And from her deathbed she had told Hal about their child. It was the first Hal had heard of him.

He wanted the son he had never known and he threatened to take him away unless Karen agreed to marry him. To her he had seemed to be a man of no feeling, yet clearly he was--and the feelings he aroused in Karen were equally intense ....

MY THOUGHTS: As usual my first thoughts were, ugh, hero gets it on with BOTH sisters? How in the world will Emma Darcy make this alright? Well, what can I say, she was able to remove the distate with her worderful storytelling. I don't want to spoil it for you but I really liked this book. The hero was definitely conflicted and even though the premise was what it was, I didn't really hate him for it. It was just an unfortunate incident the way things happened. As for the heroine, she was great. I like her devotion to her sister and her capacity to forgive. I like that she was not a ninny. She had backbone. I like that Darcy didn't focus so much on the nitty gritty relationship between hero and sister. If she did, then it would just put too much pictures in my head of the hero "whatevering" two sisters, lol. There was a couple of scenes/line where I was like, wow, hero actually said that. For a harlequin presents, LOL. The love scenes were kinda hot too =) Anyhow, a really good story and a keeper for me.
Karen Aylward had only two important things in her life--her twin sister and her son. Being twin sisters, Karen and Kirsty were sometimes able to read each other's thoughts or feel each other's pain.
Karen feels Kirsty is in terrible pain one night. She knows who Kirsty is with but she can't get to her soon enough and feels Kirsty die.
The following day, Karen answers the door to Owen Chissolm, father of Hall Chissolm, who was the man in Kirsty's life and who also was with her when she died. Owen tells Karen that before Kirsty had died she had confessed the one secret she swore to Karen she would never tell--that she, Kirsty, had given birth to Hal's son and given him to Karen to adopt without ever letting Hal know he had a son.
Agreeing to travel to the Middle East where Kirsty died in a terrorist attack and Hal was seriously injured, Karen took her son to meet his father for the first time in his life. Once there, she couldn't stop from exchanging bitter words with Hal causing him to swear he would do whatever it takes to get his son back.
Back in Sydney, Karen tries to go on with her life knowing Hal was going to do what he swore but the solution Hal had when he finally showed up was one she never thought he'd come up with--marry him and be the mother of his son and future children or give him up in a custody battle. Knowing she didn't have the resources Hal and his father had for a custody battle she agreed to the marriage knowing it would be a real marriage...not a marriage of convenience.
Karen and Hal were both wonderful in this story, both were strong individuals made stronger for their love for each other. Emma Darcy never fails to write a heartwrenching story that will tug at any mother's heart and soul.
