This book is Johanna Lindsey at her best: the characters, Sharisse and Lucas are engaging and fun, and the reader easily begins to care about what happens to them. The wild west setting is perfect for all romantics who like the idea of a rugged hero, with a city slicker's heart, falling in love with a city born young socialite - two worlds seemingly at odds, coming together. I immediately fell in love with both brothers, Slade and Lucas, and couldn't decide which brother Sharisse should be with...which is a good thing (read the book and you'll find out why). However, I realised something wasn't right about Lucas and Slade's story, and guessed it long before Sharisse did (another winner in story-telling, always keep the readers guessing and make them feel like they've guessed the truth before the character has). Perhaps the old adage 'love is blind' is fitting here, otherwise I'd be tempted to say Sharisse was a touch slow in realising what was literally staring her in the face.
I enjoyed the romance and pace of this book and if you're looking for a classic Johanna Lindsey novel that doesn't disappoint, this one is for you. It's better than a lot of her more recent publications, so if you haven't read this, don't bother with the more modern books: give this one a go. It's one of her best books and I should know, I've read all of them!

Sharisse Hammond is set to be married to a man she doesn't love. She is shocked to discover that Stephanie, her younger sister, does love him and has arranged to become a mail order bride because she can't bear to see her sister marry the man she loves. When Sharisse discovers that Joel is in love with her sister, she agrees to change places with Stephanie and sets out for Arizona. Lucas Holt agrees to give his bride time to get to know him before their wedding. The truth of the matter is that he doesn't plan on marrying this woman. He just needed her temporarily until he and his twin brother Slade can settle a score with the man who had their father killed. But Lucas is undeniably attracted to her. Sharisse is drawn to Lucas. His kisses leave her breathless, but she is only here to hide until it is safe to go home. Then Slade, a ruthless gunslinger, shows up. She knows that she is only attracted to him because he looks so much like Lucas, who she realizes that she is falling in love with.
I really enjoyed this story all the way up until their separation. I would have rather the discoveries in the story take place in Arizona rather than have Lucas and Sharisse split up for so long. The chemistry between the two characters was wonderful. And when Slade entered the picture, I actually got chills. A good book overall.

My goodness what an awful read. I was so very disappointed. The heroine is beyond stubborn, selfish, self-centered - needless to say, I did not like her. The hero - I started out thinking he was ok, but he deteriorates quickly. I absolutely hate it when they "reveal all" in the last 2 or 3 pages of the 370 or so page book. What a disappointment.

"Tender is the Storm" is a clever Western romance that involves a mail-order bride from New York and the gorgeous horse trainer in Arizona who sends for her. Both have big secrets.
I really enjoyed this book and its personable characters. The heroine, Sharisse, has NO idea what it's like to rough it in the desert as she's accustomed to maids doing everything for her, including removing her clothes. It's hysterical to see her attempt to cook. As for the Holt brothers - yummy. Identical twins, one is charming and easy going, the other an ominous gunslinger. It's fascinating to realize that Sharisse wants them both!
The plot is straightforward, though there are twists aplenty. I read it in one day, and realized it was just as good now as it was the first time I read it more than 10 years ago.
FYI: Other great Westerns romances by Johanna Lindsey include "A Heart So Wild" and "Heart of Thunder," as well as the marvelous "Savage Thunder."

This is a prime example of why I stopped reading Johanna Lindsey's books in the 80s. I would hazard a guess that her fans like to read the same story over and over and over and over. What else would explain the huge sales for her books, when they are virtually identical? This book is just like Fires in Winter, which is just like A Heart So Wild, which is just like... Well, you get the idea. Face it: Ms. Lindsey writes by template. She uses one plot, changing only the details such as names, places, physical characteristics. The first time she wrote the plot, it was great, then she wrote it at least 10 times in the 80s alone, and probably more than that in the 90s. It wears thin. But, hey, the masses apparently like endless repetition. Personally, I'd rather read a writer who bothers to try different plots, not one who writes a formula every time. If I could give all of her books no stars, I would.

I think, sad to say that I really can't remember, that this is the 2nd book by Johanna Lindsey that I have read. I am an avid romance reader, especially historical romances. I found this book somewhat lacking in many respects. First, both Lucas and Sharisse each fall for one another based on lies. They're not even the people they actually claim to be. Second, why Sharise never questioned Lucas as to why Slade and himself were never in the same room together is beyond me. I also found that alot of important things that supposedly happened were cut out of the book to make it shorter. We were never shown the actual nuptials that took place between Slade and Sharisse or the birth of their daughters. These were all things that just happened without it being written. I prefer to read it while it's happening, not after the fact. I think this book could be taken out of the library rather than purchased.
