Summary

A renowned artist’s model, Shay Morrison has posed nude to inspire great works of art. But hidden inside her, where no one can see, is the pain of a failed marriage. Then she accidentally walks in on Ian Douglas – as he steps from the shower. His embarrassment and disapproval of Shay are immediately apparent. What isn’t so obvious is his profession: Ian is a minister in a very staid community.

Challenged and hurt, Shay decides to try to make him fall in love with her. Yet as she plans to capture Ian, her best-laid plans take her into emotional territory where she’s never been... Now a woman with a troubled past tries to understand a man different from anyone she has known before, and the new feelings rising from her heart.

Tempest in Eden review

Christian romance (if you could call it that) isn’t my jam, so this was definitely my least favorite Sandra Brown story I’ve read. Renee Raudman did a great performance of the reading. The distinguish voices that she performed made the story easy to follow. But the story was so long and our heroine was so irritating. Sorry, I would not recommend this book.

Wonderful!

This is the first book of Sandra’s that I ever read and I have reread it many times over the years. The story is about a real struggle anyone could have. It really reached me deep inside. It’s also light-hearted and funny. I enjoyed being able to listen to it as a change. Renee Raudman did a wonderful job. I had never heard her before, and am sure I would enjoy listening to other books that she would narrate. Thank you so much for such an enjoyable time. Marcia

Entertaining

Every once in a while, I like to pick a book from my older purchases that I have not yet listened to. Sandra Brown is always a favorite listen of mine, and this book was just what I was looking for. Shay and Ian are introduced for the first time when Shay goes home to meet her new stepfather. Ian is her stepbrother, and immediately you can feel that tension between them. When it comes to light that Ian is a minister and Shay is a nude model, the tension becomes thicker, but is it sexual tension or disapproval? These two dance around each other and all you can do is smile as you listen to it. I love how Sandra Brown can take the characters like Shay and Ian, and show growth, maturity and acceptance as the book goes on. With circumstances like these two have, and such different lives, it was interesting how things finally come together. Slightly dated in storyline, it still is entertaining. With a narrator like Renee Raudman at the mic, you know you are in for a pleasurable listen.

Religious romance.. Unexpected!

Is this really the same Sandra Brown who penned Slow Heat in Heaven? I'm not interested in Christian romance, and didn't expect it from the author who gave us Cash Boudreaux.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a spiritual person, but I'm just not into romantic religion stories.

The narrator, however, was superb, making listening to it more tolerable. And the short length was appreciated, the action unfolded at a better pace when the book is short.

Not my cup of tea.
