THE HEIR AND THE SPARE
Though somewhat predictable (the good twin/bad twin scenario has been done before), Rodale nevertheless pens a compassionate, sensitive and sensual love story about a young man fighting to be his own man and the young woman who follows her heart and shows him the meaning of love. This is a most satisfying book for a summer day.
Then Emilia learns about the identical twins and that it's Devon who holds her heart. But Devon has demons of his own to fight when the old animosity he had for his twin returns. Devon is the spare, Phillip the heir, but their world is soon to turn upside down. (Berkley sensation, Aug., 293 pp., $6.99)
