They Took Their Love Where They Could Find It — In Each Other’s Arms

From the back:
It all began with a game, an innocent game. Two young girls — sisters — pretending to be Prince and Princess, clinging to each other for comfort and affection in the face of their lonely lives.
They shared a world cut off from all outsiders—until the night a trusted, older man took Missy by force, stirring her desires and causing her to revile men. It was natural for Missy to run to Holly for comfort.
It was natural for Holly to comfort her in the only way she knew…
Only this time it wasn’t a game. This time it turned into a passion they couldn’t control… a passion stronger than the ties of their blood and which could only lead them to emotional chaos and personal disaster.
