Trent Edwards has made a promise to himself to find his brother and bring him home, dead or alive. Reports of his sighting lead Trent to rent a house in a mountain community, where he meets Martin Longhouse. Martin is immediately attracted to Trent and wants to help him find his brother. Both men have a few secrets they aren’t willing to share. While Trent being an officer isn’t a deal breaker, Martin’s secret could be too much for the officer to accept.

Will Trent find his brother? Will he leave Martin when the truth is revealed?

Carolina Valdez takes us to a small community where things that go bump in the night have learned to coexist. Trent is a good man who places nothing above his family. He knows something has happened to his brother and only wants the truth to come out. Martin’s solitude existence is tested when Trent hits the scene. He knows that their connection makes him feel things he never thought possible. While it scares him a bit, being without Trent frightens him more. They definitely heat up the pages. The residents of this small community are an eclectic bunch adding a nice variety to the story.

There was something that happened to Trent that left me baffled. If Ms. Valdez decides to give us a sequel maybe I’ll understand how Trent ended up in need of Martin’s service.

Overall, I thought the story was well written. The characters reeled me in and the setting was magnificent.
