Book Description

June 1 1985 Avon Historical Romance
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!

1.0 out of 5 stars A four letter word that rhymes with thumb Feb. 17 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Which Twin Do You Prefer? July 14 2004
By Dakota
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"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."

4.0 out of 5 stars A Perfect Ending! April 2 2004
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is my second Johanna Lindsey book and I really enjoyed it...At first however it was a bit slow for me to climb in to but then I don't typically read a western type historical...but once the details were in place and the characters met, the story soared! The chapters flew and it never lagged... I found my self intrigued by the clever lies each was telling the other in the name of self preservation... I never found their deceptions to detract from the core fact that these two were truly falling in love with each other and their true identities...because you can only conceal so much... actions will always speak louder than words... And I have to say the ending was SO clever! And it all made sense... I love it when I can read a book and be as surprised as the character as they experience the twist!
I am very eager to move on to another of her books...MindyL

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every minute!!! July 23 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I loved the story of Sharisse and Lucas. I felt so terrible for Lucas because of what his family went through. The end was superb and worth the wait. This is another that was added to my rapidly growing pile of favorites!!!

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!

3.0 out of 5 stars It Was Not The Best. Jan. 17 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Love Story to Remember Sept. 17 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
So many of Ms. Lindsey's novels are Regency or Medieval romances, that I hesitated about reading a "Western" novel, since gunslingers and Indians do not appeal to me. Should I have worried knowing what gripping stories Ms. Lindsey always writes? Never again! This was a remarkable novel with a thriling love story which was enhanced by its western background. There is almost always some deception in her novels, between the hero and heroine, and this was no exception. Ms. Lindsey has an uncanny ability to create awesome heroes. Too bad she isn't one of those scientists mixing up DNA to create them for real!
