Stephanie lost her memory due to a head injury when the bomb sank the yacht. Max tells her that she is his wife though Stephanie feels something is wrong with this. She yearns for the two children she left behind with her husband Garth. She keeps her distance from her "husband" and meets a artist named Leon with whom she falls in love. She then learns that Max is a smuggler and people come looking for him and kill him. She stays safe with Leon until her sister shows up.


Sabrina, living as Stephanie Anderson has fallen in love and married her sister's husband (they both thought he was widowed.) Together they raise Stephanie's children, Garth and Penny. Garth is the head of the genetics department at the local university, Stephanie is starting out a designing business that is similar to what she did in London as Sabrina. They are in the early gooey stages of love--all fights end with hugs and kisses. When "Stephanie" gets a phone call stating that "Sabrina" might be still alive she goes to France to find her.

France and London

The Twins reunite and together they find that Sabrina's ex-husband was behind the bombing. More important they figure out a way to keep the lives and men they love.
Best part of story, including ending: I enjoyed seeing the characters from Deceptions again. I really enjoy Sabrina Longworth.

Best scene in story: I love the reunion between the twins. After Sabrina had mourned her sister and even throughout all the worries of what would happen next she was truly overjoyed to see her twin.

Opinion about the main character: Stephanie makes me annoyed because she is so weak. I like Sabrina for her strength and her ability to cut through the BS.
