The problem, their father's other twin son Percy and daughter Ophelia, their mother Edith, and 2 of Edith's nieces Anne and Sarah reside there. Percy and Ophelia don't want to hand over Gladstone so conflict is always at the forefront where they're involved, but let's not forget the storyline addition of their incestuous natures.
A deal with the Prince will insert Jamie successfully into the earldom but he needs to marry Anne first. Anne agrees to marry Jamie but changes her mind when commitment issues surface. He ends up tying and gagging her at the altar. True to his nature he takes off to London after being married only 3 months breaking Anne's heart. Jack is left to run Gladstone and has developed an interest in Sarah. Their story is another story line the reader wishes to end happily ever after. There are twin love stories involving Jamie and Anne and Jack and Sarah, which allows the reader a wider evolving range of scenarios.
Cheryl Holt's many personable characters have flaws that make them vulnerable. The dialogue is easy to follow, the action intense and the love scenes are explicit which makes Double Fantasy a doubly fantastic page turner.
