 Headstrong heiress Sharisse Hammond wants no part of the New York society marriage that has been arranged for her. So she heads west across a vast and dangerous land -- with no intention of honoring her agreement to become the mail-order bride of a rugged Arizona rancher.

But Lucas Holt needs a wife -- any wife -- if his plan to destroy his most hated enemy is to succeed. And this gullible Eastern lady would do quite nicely. However, their separate schemes to use one another are complicated by raw, aching passion. For Lucas's beautiful, unsuspecting pawn was not supposed to be so irresistible alluring. And freedom-loving Sharisse never dreamed she could ever desire one man so much!

My Review

Tender is the Storm is a story about two individuals who for different reasons needed to get married. Both believed that the other was in it for the long haul, but neither suspected that this marriage of convenience would soon turn into a marriage of love. This story has plenty of twists and turns and kept me guessing right to the very end. I am rarely surprised by a book ending, but this one definitely achieved that. The characters are really well thought out and the plot keeps you on your toes from beginning to end. A few catfights here and there along with some surprises from both the heroine and the hero make this a very entertaining read.
