the premise was interesting but right off the bat the heroine lacked the courage of her convictions. She was all embarrassed about being racy and saucy as soon as she found out he was a minister. If you're comfortable with who you are then you would be comfortable no matter who you were speaking to.

Shay's mother marries Ian's father. They meet in the bathroom as Ian is stepping out of the shower. Shay is a nude model while Ian is a minister. She teases, taunts, and tempts him tenaciously. He keeps showing his ministerial side and proving Shay right. Eventually he acknowledges his feelings for Shay, and they begin seeing each other. When emotions are about to explode one night, Ian asks Shay to marry him. While life is good for a while, Shay takes a job and Ian blows up. Will they make their way back to each other or go their separate ways?

I enjoyed this story. Shay just keeps on getting under Ian's skin as he does hers. It was delightful to watch their differences make them more attracted to each other. Shay had her doubts about the two of them together, but it works until she takes the job. I understood Shay's reaction. They never talked about her job before they married. Ian was judgmental towards her job and, as a result, her. Shay is a good, generous person. She sees needs and finds ways to meet those needs. She does it without Ian telling her this is what a minister's wife does. She is spot on and able to step in when Ian is not there. I liked her a lot. Ian needed his behind kicked once or twice.

This book was written in 1983 when romances were getting hotter. The love scenes did not end at the bedroom door but instead went into the bedroom. The language was getting away from euphemisms. This is a book that goes from the tame stories of the early 1970's and back to the more realistic books of today. This is part of the history of the changes of romance novels. The story is as contemporary as anything today, but it shows the evolution of romance novels. A choice read! ( )

I actually wanted to read this book because some of the reviews on it were so bad.. The premise of the book sounded interesting enough Shay Morrison, a nude model for artists, and Ian Douglas, a conservative minister. Her mother and his father had married and wanted everyone to meet at a cabin so everyone could get to know each other. Shay had not yet met the man her mother had married nor knew much about his son. They get off on the wrong foot when she catches him coming out of the shower and gets an eye full.. And that causes some conflict between the two (some funny).. She is also very attracted to him but after her first marriage ended because he wanted her to be something she wasnt she is very sensitive to thinking Ian is judging her and nothing could come of there attraction.. There journey from there is very sweet - with Shay still having alot of insecurities about the relationship.. There is a line from Shay that she was thinking about as she was waiting for Ian on there honeymoon - She longed for an adventurous sex life. But she didn't expect Ian to share her desire for variety and experimentation (cause of him being a minister). Boy was she wrong :)

Tempest in Eden by Sandra Brown
Shea is a nude model and she drives to visit with her mom and her new husband. She also now has a brother via her moms marriage and she likes what she sees as he steps out of the shared bathroom at her moms house.
Over the weekend they become friends and even more than that as the wine flows freely. She goes back to the city and he comes to visit and she attends his service to find out about his job.
Ian is a minister.She can not see the relationship going anywhere, He, on the whole is against her profession and he is a man of God. ( )

Typical contemporary Brown. The characters make or break her books. ( )
