My twin sister was the only person in the world I thought I’d known inside and out. Apparently, I was wrong.

Twin sisters share a unique bond, one that can't be broken by miles, time, or even death. Hannah and Hope Morton are no exception. When Hope takes her own life, Hannah loses a sister and a best friend, a catastrophe she isn't sure she'll survive herself.
With her family in ruins, Hannah is slowly disappearing, drowning in a sea of misery. Even her wild, energetic best friend can't pull her out of her grief. Desperate to help Hannah, her brother comes home from college, bringing his best friend Julian along, the first boy to break Hannah’s heart. None of their efforts are enough to pull Hannah off her self destructive path, though. Julian is the only one who can get through to her, working his way into her frozen soul with cocky remarks and genuine love that warms her from the inside out.
As Hannah works to find answers, she continues to uncover new secrets and people that reveal a side of Hope she had never shared with her twin. Alone now, Hannah must make a decision of her own: move on and start a new life with the people she has left, or let the weight of her grief drag her down with her sister.

Character Profile: Julian

Nicknames: Juli, Jules
Full Names: Julian Aaron Grey
Age: 19 years old

  • Resurrecting the dead and dying of all metal beasts, his favorite being the ancient pick-up he affectionately calls Betsy
  • Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia ice cream, although he has been known to steal a bit of Hannah's Chunky Monkey as well.
  • Green eyed blondes, preferably ones he's known his whole life *wink, wink*
  • Rescuing damsels in distress, although his methods sometimes get him into trouble.
  • High action, high body count, guy flicks. If it has Bruce Willis in it, he just has to see it.
  • His father planning his whole life out for him.
  • Peas
  • Other guys scamming on his girlfriend. Yeah, Julian can be a little on the jealous side, which lands him in hot water with Hannah every now and then.
  • Romantic comedies. They just aren't realistic, or so he says.
  • Using the "emergency" black card
  • TEA
Julian is a fixer. He sees someone in distress and he just can't help but reach out to save them. His methods, however, could use a little refining. Instead of analyzing a situation and stopping to think things through, he allows his emotions to lead him and charges right in, which can sometimes get him into trouble.

Karla J. Nellenbach divides her time between dayjobbing, writing, and indulging in her Winchester (Sam and Dean, that is) obsession. The rest of her day is spent playing butler to a cranky old man masquerading as a housecat and two rambunctious puppies that closely resemble small horses.

Born and raised in the wilds of Michigan, she knows two immutable facts: (1) it is entirely possible to live in a thumb, and (2) you definitely can go home again…you just might not survive the winter. Having resided in the sunscape of Florida for the last decade, she’s still on a quest to see a real live alligator outside of the “petting” zoo.
  Karla is currently at work on her next novel. You can find more information on Karla and her work at her website, The Last Word: http://www.karlanellenbach.com/
