New York Times bestseller Carly Phillips returns with a delightfully saucy new novel about twin sisters-and the delicious trouble that ensues when one is mistaken for the other.
Ariana Costas has always been the outsider in her huge, crazy Greek family. She also has a twin sister, Zoe, whose personality is very different from her own. While Ariana has always been known as the good girl, Zoe has relished her role as the troublemaker. Now, perhaps due to one of her shady schemes, she has gone missing. But when Ariana is mistaken for her twin and rescued from a bullet by handsome stranger Quinn Donovan, her life flips upside down. Quinn is resolved to protect Ariana, but he is keeping secrets of his own that are destined to complicate both of their lives. Through Ariana, the quintessential loner discovers the importance of family and love. But can Ariana trust herself enough to win Quinn's heart?
Zoe Costas knows trouble when she sees it Zoe's a security specialist and a Costas through and through. Her eccentric, rather dubious family runs an Atlantic City spa that's just this side of legit. So Zoe isn't fooled by the charm or good looks of this Ryan Baldwin when he shows up claiming to be related to Sam, the little girl the Costas family is about to adopt.
But Ryan is Sam's uncle and one of the rich, upright – and uptight – Boston Baldwins. Ryan's search for his sister Faith, the family's black sheep, has led him to news of her death, and to a niece he's never met. But someone else has also tracked Sam down – someone who never wanted the child to be found.
Ryan is determined to protect Sam and find out what really happened to his sister. And Zoe "Whatever-It-Takes" Costas is just the woman to help him do it…

Do you like romances that sizzle? Carly Phillips really turns up the heat in Simply Sexy, her response to reader requests for a story about the sister of Body Heat hero Jake Lowell. It's been a year and a half since her husband's death, and Rina Lowell has finally made the fresh start she's been promising herself. After years of marriage to a wealthy man who loved her but never really understood her, Rina revels in the thought that she can now design her future to suit herself. She's left her big-city life behind and relocated to the small Massachusetts town of Ashford. And her new job there, as a staff writer for the local paper, seems tailor-made – she can observe and report, and enjoy life without risking either her freedom or her heart. You see, while Rina is determined to avoid relationships, she's decided that sex is a different issue – one she plans to explore in her new column called "Hot Stuff." She thinks that a holiday fling with her new boss, sexy sportswriter Colin Lyons, would be a great way to research her first tantalizing topic, "What Do Men Want?" Unfortunately, much as Colin's curiosity is aroused by Rina's proposal, he thinks the failing paper can't afford to waste space on a "fluff piece" like "Hot Stuff"…and their difference of opinion quickly grows heated, both professionally and personally… Sue Stone
