The Elliotts series, book 4.
From the Elliots series. Book #4 - Scarlet Elliott's story.
[Review from the Romantic Times website]
After his engagement to one of the Elliott twins is unexpectedly broken, John Harlan doesn't expect to find the other twin on his doorstep -- or in his bed. But impulsive Scarlet Elliott has been in love with buttoned-down John for a long time and wants to comfort him. While a battle wages over control of the family business, Scarlet and John try to keep their relationship under wraps until they know where it's leading. Opposites attract in Susan Crosby's The Forbidden Twin (4), a delightful and heartwarming addition to the Elliott family saga.
Great fast read, like all of the Elliott family series.
