Rancher Craig Harris and veterinarian Tamera Collins clash from the moment they meet.  Innocence is pitted against arrogance as tempers rise and passions ignite to form a love as pure as the finest gold, fresh from the crucible and as strong as steel.  Thrown together amid tragedy and unsated passion, Tamera and Craig share a strong attraction that neither accepts as the first stages of love.  Torn between desire and dislike, they must make peace with their pasts and God in order to open up to the love blossoming between them.  It is a love that nothing can destroy when they come to understand that only when hearts are tempered, minds are opened and wills are softened can man discern the will of God for his life.


Book 1 in 4 part Tempered Series

Tempered Hearts is well written and a pleasant surprise from the normal contemporary romances of sex and mayhem. It's a gentle read that reminds one of one's faith and morals, with spice added. I like that Miss Thibodeaux makes her point on premarital sex and faith, without shoving it down the readers throat. She doesn't ignore the characters' sexual feelings, they are there, in titillating ways, without consummating. The author explores them with detail, depth and innocence, without losing the story line. Which this reader feels is about lost faith and regaining it in a contemporary way.

I would recommend this to anyone who wants a good book, with faith and a lot of zip. I would especially recommend Tempered Hearts to those teen readers on the verge of becoming adults. This is a perfect book to show love, without the physical act. I would suggest that the story be a bit longer and the scenic scenes given more detail to give the reader a complete view. ~ Reviewed by KL Frizzell for Timeless Tales Reviews posted @ Amazon
