Book can be read as a stand-alone.
Elizabeth Rose Murphy is the manager at Beacon Point Resort in Duluth. Elizabeth is a twin. She believes to be the less unattractive twin and has scars from past relationships that have diminished her confidence in herself. Neither of her previous two boyfriends loved her enough to keep her around and her fear of failure keeps her from pursuing her dream job.
Marshall is a devilishly handsome, confident and successful business man who owns two Absinthe Distilleries, one in Duluth, the other in Minneapolis. Having the reputation of an unattainable ladies man, Elizabeth keeps her distance. It isn’t until she gets to know him that she learns he has a very heartbreaking past.
When Elizabeth is forced into conversation with Marshall, after years of purposely avoiding him, she realizes that things aren’t always what they seem. The chemistry between them is strong and unavoidable, though her insecurity and his complicated past threaten their chance at a future. Following a violent attack, they become painfully aware that their lives are intertwined in an unexpected way. This collision of past and present has the potential to drive them forward together, if they can avoid letting it break them apart.
