They were sisters...and strangers. Each had always yearned for the sister she never really had...never knowing how to reach out to the other...until it was almost too late.

Alexa - As the star of nighttime's hottest soap, Alexa has it all-beauty, fame and fortune. Yet her nights are lonely. When she falls in love with a powerful man who cannot promise her more than secret nights of pleasure, she accepts this compromise without question, not knowing that her clandestine passion will drive a wedge between herself and Catherine.

Catherine - A shy, talented pianist, she lets her music shield her from the world. When she learns she is not Alexa's true sister, Cat is devastated and keeps the truth a terrible secret. Searching for the answers that will lead her back to her past, she finds herself on the shores of a glittering Mediterranean isle...and in the arms of a man who will make her whole.

Desire. Heartbreak. Triumph. Love, Alexa and catherine must each embark on a journey of the heart before they can truly be sisters and claim the happiness waiting for them both at the end of their Rainbows.

From Library Journal
Stone's ( Roommates, Twins) hardcover debut--the story of two beautiful sisters who both rise to the top of their professions and find the men of their dreams--has many of the elements of a fairy tale, i.e., a wicked prince, a beautiful princess, a valuable necklace, and two babies given away at birth. Alexa Taylor is a wildly successful but sweetly humble actress, star of the hit series Pennsylvania Avenue . Her sister Catherine is an insecure but extraordinarily beautiful concert pianist. The plot concentrates on their relationships with the men in their lives (all of whom are rich, powerful, and handsome) and how they earn the right to their soulmates. The pacing is fast and the prose leans toward the purple (her emerald eyes speak to his sapphire ones with recurring monotony). In spite of some stilted dialog and a sense of unreality about the goodness of these characters, this is fun to read and sure to circulate well in the popular fiction collection.
