Enhance your purchase
New York Times bestselling author Lori Wilde returns to Twilight, Texas, with a love story filled with the magic of the season, about a couple who discover an abandoned baby on Christmas Eve-Eve.
It’s Christmastime in Twilight, TX. The lights are twinkling, carols are being sung, and the cookies are baking. And this year, best friends Joel and Jana discover a shocking surprise: as they are organizing the living Nativity, they find a sweet little baby in the manger with a note saying the mother will return...soon.
Jana tucks the infant into her arms, and she and Joel make the impulsive decision to take the baby home. Jana is spontaneous, Joel is a planner, but they agree that it’s better to care for this precious bundle for the holidays, in hopes that the mother really will come back by New Year’s.
As the days pass, the pair begins to fall in love with the child and they’re also forced to face facts: their relationship goes far deeper than friendship. As the spirit of Christmas—and the magic of Twilight, TX—takes over, this unlikely couple must open up to the feelings they’ve been hiding from each other all along.

Joel and Jana may be employer and employee, but they've both volunteered to watch the town's live nativity and take the animals back to the barn at the end of the night. There may also be some interest on one or both of their parts, but Jana is a mess of tough complications.
Before they can get the animals back to their homes they find a real, live human baby in the manger. With nothing more than a note asking they look after him, Joel and Jana work together to care for little Gabriel. Jana grew up in the system, so she'll do anything to keep this innocent baby out of foster care. She'll gladly spare anyone the experiences she had, especially an innocent baby.
Of course, this is Twilight, Texas, so something like this doesn’t happen in the small community without most everyone in town getting involved. And as they work together on behalf of Gabriel, Jana and Joel grow closer to each other, but it's not an easy road. Jana’s upbringing influences most everything in her life, and Joel has some serious challenges in getting Jana to lower her walls.
This talented lady knows just how to weave a story that draws the reader in, making her part of everything that happens from beginning to end. Settle in and gird your heart, but prepare to have these authentic, vulnerable characters make themselves at home in it. Sweet, compelling and full of feels, this wonderful heartwarming story will fill you with joy and remind you of the very best parts of the Christmas season.
