Litfuse Publicity Tours Presents: Taming the Wind (Land of the Lone Star, #3) by Tracie Peterson

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?

My Review:

Things have changed so much since these characters were introduced in the first two books. You can read this one alone, there are enough facts presented to follow.
William and Hannah Barnett are ranching her families land, and Tyler Atherton is working there. He has been unable to get his land back. They want to drive cattle from Texas to Kansas and have asked Brandon to help.
Carissa Lowe and her precocious two year old Gloria are now living with her Sister Laura, Brandon and baby Daniel. Laura is expecting their second child. Life is relatively good now for Carissa, and she is enjoying her daughter.
When Tyler reappears Carissa finds herself falling for him. He is so good with Gloria, and out of the blue calls him Papa Papa Tyer.
Will Tyler return her feeling, or is he interested in Ava? They have a long trip ahead on the trail. Tyler has to deal with his hate of Indians, and forgive the one who murdered his father.
I love how most of the characters in this story rely on the Lord. What all need to do is find the forgiveness that is freely given, and allow forgiveness.

I received this book through Litfuse Publicity Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
