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.
An unexpected job offer finds zoologist Eric Phillips transported from the elephant house at a zoo just outside London to the wildlife reserves in the South African bushveld. Being able to work with his own herd of elephants, and analysing their behaviour, more than makes up for the remote nature of the research station. The one bright spot on the horizon, quite literally if the sun hits it at the right angle, is the silver freight plane that brings his supplies and half an hour in the company of Tyaan, the gorgeous but taciturn pilot.
I loved the setting of this book. To be so out there that you have to have your supplies flown in weekly sounds like heaven to me. Lonely but also so exciting. I loved the two young elephants!!
I jumped in feet first on this book because I read somewhere online that it was similar to "Red Dirt Heart" series (which is one of my top three favorite series) only to find out that unfortunately is not even close. I'm not saying it's not a good read because it is, it's a good love story that pulls you in and makes you want these two guys to work. You get where each are coming from the more you read but that doesn't make one right above the other. Loving someone will always mean wanting to keep them safe and that is what Tyaan is trying to do. In the end it's friends, elephants and a love that was meant to be that finally bring these two men together in a world that even the strongest of prejudices can't deny.
