Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

na - K.L Frizzell
Tempered Hearts is well written and a pleasant surprise from the normal contemporary romances of sex and mayhem. 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. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a good book, with faith
na - Jill Nicholson
Tempered Hearts has the most realistic characters I have read in an inspirational
romance to date. It is a nice change of pace with its real-life characters.
na - Tracy Tracy
TEMPERED HEARTS is an outstanding story of true love and the obstacles you have to overcome to realize loves permanence. Tamara and Craig were believable characters to whom I had no trouble relating. Unlike some inspirational romances, TEMPERED HEARTS does not rely on a lot of bible gospel to tell the story. The main focus is on the characters and their relationship without becoming overly preachy. I truly enjoyed TEMPERED HEARTS and believe Ms. Thibodeaux has an outstanding career ahead.

This rated at an average read... sorry but I was disappointed! Even though by most of the content you would feel as though you are reading a christian based book... I hate to point out, but it was lacking in christian morals. There were several times the language was an issue for me. Not to mention the fact that the guy ( a jerk of a cowboy) who I guessed claimed to be a christian atleast towards the end.. he makes several statements about "beating" the girl... ?? Not sure what was happening with that. Also he kept trying to sleep with her, sorry but pre-marital sex don't really cut it with my veiws! I understand passion and the natural feelings that arise when you fall in love.... but it felt a little more like lust only, as I read some parts...

What I enjoyed most about this book is the characters, and while I do enjoy reading inspirational novels, this one had a more realistic resonance because of those characters. As the novel starts, readers see the worst sides of both characters, but it's almost like two magnets drawing together, and it's definitely hard to stop reading because you want to know how they get past those flaws and who they will become once they do. I think that's the biggest reason I like to read--to see who the characters will become and hope that by sharing their journey I find myself changed. While I'm probably just as bad about picking up books based on cover art, I wasn't really fond of this cover so I'm glad I gave the blurb a chance. It's definitely a gem worth reading, and I'm looking forward to starting on the next book in the series.
