Working with elephants in their natural habitat has always been Eric Phillips dream. Getting what he’s always desired introduces him to Tyaan Bouwer, the bush pilot that flies in his supplies, and Eric discovers the allure of South Africa goes beyond the wildlife and the scenery. But in an area where bushveld prejudices and hatred bleed across the borders, realising their love will be a hard fought battle. Keeping hold of it might just kill them.

New to me author but I'll be reading more. I got sucked into this very quickly and spend several late nights reading as I couldn't put it down. Realistic characters, including side characters. Also loved the elephants - they were characters in their own right.  The settings were well drawn, and helped to bring the story to life, very easy to imagine.

Coming out can be very difficult for many in the LGBT.  So much is at risk, especially when you have lived your truth in private for so long, that it nearly kills you to face being out.  It was great to see Tyaan come to terms and give in to what he desperately needed in his relationship with Eric.  Great characters and setting.
