A renowned artist's model, Shay Morrison thinks nothing of exposing her body to inspire great works of art. 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 a shower. Every gorgeous bit of him is immediately apparent -- as is his disapproval of Shay. What isn't so obvious is his profession: Ian is a minister in a very staid community. Challenged and hurt, Shay decides to seduce him. But waiting for her are the traps of her own weaknesses and the potent force of sexuality.

QUESTION: what's more precious than all the Gold in Fort Knoxs' ...?!
ANSWER: a True to life love story, that you can sink your teeth into & enjoy each delectable,delicious tasty morsel bite...yummieee!
Tempest in Eden by Sandra Brown is a gold mine of love you'll forever cherish.

Wow talk about SIN-suality at it's best, I like the Hero (Ian)truly his character spoke volumes oppose to the person he is and was. Especially,when you think of the old adage NEVER JUDGE A BOOK By it's Cover! Can you say HOTTIE...a lover likes to no other...pleazze to me it was even a bigger turn on that he was a man of the cloth so to speak(teehee!)Nor did it take away from the story that the setting was of a another time or age...heyyy that made it all the Better for this Romantic!

What a guy!!! I must admit the beginning of the story did throw me for a loop but this READ is a keepsake. I love how Ms. Brown handle the two lovers head on, in this love story...I'm sooo glad she didn't choke-up or shy away from telling it like it is!
Superbly &wonderful was this classy story told.

Most of all Ms. Brown was True to the feelings of how a man &woman should feel regardless of religion or back ground., with matters of true love are in the mix. I got such a FEEL GOOD feeling ,when Shay...(I love that name!) found herself and grew. You go girl...NOW...that's what I'm talking about...yesss!
I read this Love story twice,and I promise you it wont be my last !!!
THANKS Ms. Brown for the sweet & tasty lovely treat for it fed my fires,passions & desires most complete!"

Shay was a free-spirit. Ian was a conservative minister. They couldn't stand each other at first, but they fell in love. They went through some ups and downs, but eveything worked out. Love scenes were hot and so were the characters. Wish it was longer, but so worth reading.
