Nico and Dai are mages who are also two-thirds of a Sacred Triad. For many years now, they have been searching for the woman who will be the third member of their triad and together their powers will combine and save their world from being forever dark. All Nico and Dai know about the mysterious woman is that many years ago, something so horrible happened that she shed her magic – magic the Nico and Dai are holding until they can return it. Now finally, they might have found a trail that will lead them to the woman who will make them whole.
Twyla has been living on her own ever since the night her life was destroyed. By her hard work and after many years of travels, Twyla has finally found a home that she can stay for awhile. But when two handsome strangers suddenly show up, at first Twyla is scared to death and ready to run. And yet her body is reacting in a way it never has – with passion and not towards one of them but both. That can’t be normal, can it?
Nico and Dai have finally met the woman who will become their third and their entire beings are ready to mate and become a real Sacred Triad. However, that will not be as easy as it sounds. The past hurts and fears that Twyla have must first be overcome. She will have to learn to trust Nico and Dai before they can fulfill their destiny. Day by day, Twyla is learning to accept Nico and Dai until the passion that simmers between them all cannot be ignored any further. Fulfilling their destiny is only a part of the future that awaits all of them because while Nico, Dai and Twyla were learning about each other, they also learned about the men who tried to destroy Twyla so long ago. Settling the past will be part of their loving future.
A woman terrified of passion will learn that with the right partners, passion can lead you to a loving future in Twilight. Nico and Dai are a strong and loving duo searching for the third of their triad. Twyla’s strength was proven by how she managed to live after the horrible attack in her past. Nico and Dai are strong warriors in their own right and when they finally found Twyla, that strength was proven as they took the time for trust and passion to be learned. My heart went out to Twyla as I learned about just what had happened to her and how she overcame it. Yet, I wasn’t surprised when Twyla began to fall for Nico and Dai. I was very happy to see that this triad was able to not only fulfill their destiny, but also found a way to become a loving trio that will last for many, many years to come. I also have to say that seeing some justice come to Twyla also told me that all three of them would be able to overcome the past. Twilight took parts of suspense and old horrors, wrapped them up in a healing passion, which allowed this triad the loving future that had been foretold so long ago to come true.
