She’s a committed Christian. He’s a dedicated father. Will a chance meeting repair their fragile hearts?

Tessa Scott can’t help but question God’s will. After the animal surgeon’s long-term boyfriend cut loose, she’s all alone except for the goofy, untrained stray she met outside her clinic. But when a trip to puppy school reveals a dashing single father, Tessa wonders if becoming a wife and a mother may be part of her path…

Ben Williams kept most of his feelings inside when his wife left him. Absorbed with his work and raising his son, he’s surprised by his therapist’s prescription to get a new dog to care for. The captivating woman he meets at training class stirs something inside him, but can he move past his painful divorce to open his heart all over again?

As their friendship grows deeper, the challenge with Ben’s rebellious son rises to a whole new level. If Tessa can overcome her doubts and Ben can embrace his future, then they may just find God’s peace after all…

Tender Love is the first standalone book in The True Love Series, a set of contemporary Christian romance novels set in Queensland, Australia. If you like charming characters, faith-filled families, and friendships that become something more, then you’ll love Juliette Duncan’s inspirational second-chance tale. If you're a fan of Karen Kingsbury, Valerie M Bodden, or Jan Karon, you'll love Juliette Duncan books!


Tessa had to walk away from her relationship due to things just turned out really bad after am accident. She's decided that when the time is right God will bring the right man into her life. She's ends up bringing home Sparky who just happens to be exactly what she needed to distract her heart. When a chance encounter brings Ben into her life they have this instant spark. Together they embark on a sweet romance as they both heal from their pasts. 

I love Tessa she's just the sweetest character she has a strong relationship with God which is part of her everyday life. I wasn't sure about Ben because he's got a lot of baggage but thanks to Tessa's best friend he's able to get the help he need to be open to a relationship with Tessa. I like that Tessa made the effort when it came to Ben's son Jaden. 

This is a sweet christian romance I picked it up because I was reading Australian authors so this is my first book by the author. I haven't read a christian romance in a long time so I found this series refreshing the romance is sweet and the story is captivating. I enjoyed the author's writing style and devoured the book in one afternoon. I actually read the whole series one after another because I had to know what would happen next to Tessa and Ben.
