Taming The Wind by Tracie Peterson

Taming the Wind (Land of the Lone Star, #3)
Taming The Wind by Tracie Peterson

About the Book: 

A young widow nursing the wounds of her past…

A cowboy with demons of his own…

Though grateful for the blessing of her daughter, Carissa Lowe has accepted that widowhood is her lot in life. Bound by fear and mistrust, she feels incapable of opening her heart again.

Tyler Atherton has never forgotten Carissa. When he discovers she’s living with her sister on a nearby ranch, his life becomes intertwined with the lovely widow’s. And Carissa’s daughter, Gloria, seems determined to wrap herself around his little finger. But while Tyler longs to provide a home and future for Carissa, he is haunted by an obligation he feels unable to fulfill.

Challenged by mounting hardships, can Carissa and Tyler preserve their fledgling love in a land as unforgiving and vibrant as the people who call it home?

Meet Tracie: 

Tracie Peterson is the award-winning author of over eighty novels, both historical and contemporary. Her avid research resonates in her stories, as seen in her bestselling Heirs of Montana and Alaskan Quest series. Tracie and her family make their home in Montana. Visit Tracie's Web site at and her blog at

My Take:  I have enjoyed Tracie Peterson's books every since I read the series the Heirs of Montana.  I could not put those books down.  The Same can be said for this book.  Tracie's characters are very engaging and you grow to truly care about these characters as if they were dear friends.  Her characters are not cookie cutter Christian characters either.   They are flawed like everyone.  Carissa wants to cut off all emotions except toward her daughter because of the hurt she has been through.  Tyler has other things to worry about other than Carissa who he saved from her abusive husband.  The book is exciting and has you wondering what will happen next.
I received a review copy of this book from Litfuse Group in exchange for my honest opinion.
