Twilight is a mystical time, where wondrous things can happen. Lakota Native Cade Montana is a horse whisperer who manages a small spread in Wyoming. His love of animals has always created a peace in Cade.

Dr. Lee Donaldson remembers vividly the first time they met and his instant attraction to Cade’s strength and ability to tame wild horses. Over time, the men become friends and lovers.

Cade’s introduction into his new abilities makes him sadly aware that there is no room in his life for Lee. The penalty of revealing the truth to an outsider is death and Cade would rather break Lee’s heart than to cause his demise. While Cade plans to keep his distance, Fate has other ideas and won’t allow the lovers to suffer forever.

Carolina Valdez takes us to the picturesque Mountain Valley, Wyoming for a delightful story about love and acceptance. Lee is a good man with a heart filled with love for Cade and the animals he works with. Cade understands horses, and working on the ranch, he knows the dangers of predatory animals first hand. It was hard to side with either man during some of their conflict, because both had valid points. While I could understand Cade’s fear of telling Lee and reluctance to continue with their relationship, I was unsure if being alone was the right decision. Fortunately, part of Cade understood that sometimes you just have to trust the one you love.

Twilight is a well-written story, which encompasses a sound plot, brilliant setting, and fantastic characters that pull you into the thick of things. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the story and believe those who read this genres will be elated they bought the book.
