There’s a legend in Twilight, Texas. If you sleep with a kismet cookie under your pillow on Christmas Eve, you will dream of your one true love.
She saw him in her dreams . . .
It’s impossible! Naomi Luther was standing face-to-face with the man she’d dreamed about over a year ago. Was it the magic of kismet Christmas cookies that brought him to her? Or is there an even greater force at work? All Naomi knows is she is falling, hard and fast, for the one man all good sense says she should not have.
She was his buddy’s sister . . .
Rebellious Mark Shepherd found order in the Marines but chaos on the battlefield. In a mission gone wrong, Mark is injured and one of his fellow soldiers loses his life. Haunted by guilt, he arrives in Twilight to keep a solemn promise. But when the Luthers mistake him for their handyman, he’s swept up in playing Santa to his buddy’s orphan son . . . and falling hard for Naomi’s irresistible bright spirit and sweet, sexy smile. But what will happen when she learns the truth?
Wilde's latest Twilight, Texas contemporary western romance (after Cowboy, It's Cold Outside) is an absolute crowd-pleaser. Former Marine Mark Shepherd comes to the town of Twilight to honor the wishes of Clayton Luther, a man under his command who died in Afghanistan, and return a cherished possession to Clayton's family. Clayton's father, pastor Tom Luther, mistakes Mark for a handyman he has hired, and Mark can't bring himself to tell the man the real reason for his visit. As Mark works on projects for the church, he falls under the spell of Naomi Luther, Clayton's older sister, and Hunter, Clayton's orphaned son. Mark tries to keep his distance from Naomi, feeling responsible for Clayton's death, and Naomi attempts to ignore the sizzling heat she feels in Mark's presence, as she believes that raising Hunter leaves her no time for love. The magnetism between Naomi and Mark is breathtaking and real, and the magic of Christmas enhances their romance. Readers will cheer for the wounded warrior who may just have found a place to call home.
