Taken by Love by Melissa Foster & Giveaway


Book #7 The Bradens, Love in Bloom Series #15

TAKEN BY LOVE is the first of six hot, wealthy, and wickedly naughty Braden cousins, and the newest additions to the BRADEN series by New York Times & USA Today bestselling and award-winning author Melissa Foster.

Daisy Honey fled Trusty, Colorado, after years of battling rumors sparked by her gorgeous looks and lust-inducing name. Now a physician on the brink of a promising career, she reluctantly returns home when her father is injured in a farming accident. Daisy expects the small-town girls who hurt her in the past to take cheap shots again—but she’s completely unprepared for a run-in with tall, dark, and wickedly sexy Luke Braden, the only man who has ever stood up for her—and the man she’s never forgotten.

Luke Braden is handsome, wealthy, and the best damn gypsy horse breeder in the Midwest. After a restless youth, he’s finally ready to settle down—only connecting with women is nothing like connecting with horses, and he’s never met a woman worth the energy. After an arrest in a neighboring town, Luke’s past comes back to haunt him, and he realizes that his inability to find love runs deeper than he ever imagined.

A chance encounter sweeps Luke and Daisy into a world of passion. For the first time ever, Luke feels a connection, but Daisy’s life in Trusty is anything but permanent, and Luke can’t manage a future until he puts his past to rest.

THE BRADEN COUSINS are the newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series.

I was so happy to learn that Melissa Foster was going to introduce more books to the Love in Bloom series. I loved The Bradens the first time and although this part of the series features the cousins of the original Bradens they are still mentioned or featured in the books.

Luke Braden is the youngest of Hal Braden’s sisters children and is one of the main characters in Taken by Love and he is such a lovely man and wonderful character, owning a ranch and loving his horses like they were his children, his other love is the gorgeous Dr Daisy Honey, who has just came back to Trusty as she has just qualified as a doctor in family medicine and her father had a bad fall it is the perfect opportunity while she figures out which job to apply for.

That is of course until Luke takes her heart and she realises that the demons she had been facing since a teenager at school should have been left just there and to give people a second chance. Luke was also facing some demons that he needed to quell too.

I absolutely loved how this book progressed, and how the characters progressed it all flowed so smoothly.  Love is a beautiful thing and as you read Taken by Love you will notice that it can happen at the most unexpected time.

Another great addition to the series, I have been hooked to each and every book and cannot wait for the next one.
