Sandra Brown - Tempest In Eden book description:
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.
