In USA Today bestseller TAKEN BY LOVE...
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.

Love this Story5 star

Taken by Love might be my new favorite book by this author! When Daisy Honey returns to her hometown it is with an end date. She is just staying to help her Dad while he recovers from an injury and she considers the job offers from hospitals in 2 large cities. Daisy still has vivid memories of the teasing she endured in High School because of her name and blonde hair. She is sure that small town life is not for her. “I love you, Daisy, and people who love each other do whatever it takes to help each other be the best they can be and achieve their dreams.” Luke Braden has a few things from his past that he needs to work through before he is ready to consider a serious relationship, but he open minded and willing to work for what he wants. He is definitely a swoon-worthy hero, thinking of Daisy and what may be best for her. I listened to this on audiobook and I really enjoyed the narration. I loved all the characters in Trusty and I can’t wait to return there for more stories. -4.5 Stars!-55


Great Read5 star

Taken by Love was another great read by Melissa Foster. This is The Braden's at Trusty, CO #1). I loved reading Daisy and Luke's story. They are character's that you can completely relate to. Daisy returns to Trusty, CO after becoming a physician. She meets Luke again and it can change her life completely. I cant wait to read more of The Braden's.55
