TAKEN BY LOVE – Bradens at Trusty #1 by @Melissa_Foster #Romance #Bookreview

Taken by Love (The Bradens at Trusty #1; The Bradens #7; Love in Bloom #16)Taken by Love by Melissa Foster
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Taken by Love is book #1 of the Bradens at Trusty a branch of the popular Love in Bloom series (#7 The Bradens #16 Love In Bloom). Set in Trusty Colorado it is a hot contemporary romance.

Daisy Honey rues the day her parents christened her and their genes gave her blonde hair. At school jealous girls did their worst spreading vicious rumours about Daisy’s morals. She couldn’t wait to get away from Trusty and the harsh community.

Eleven years have gone by, Daisy is a qualified Doctor with high profile job offers, but she is forced to return home when her father takes a fall from his tractor and injures his back. Daisy has taken a temporary job at the Trusty care clinic, a clinic supposedly set up for emergencies as it is a forty-five minute drive away for locals to go to see a personal doctor. However Daisy soon finds that the locals are in need of a doctor for the community.

Luke Braden is a rancher with a bad reputation, yet he was the one person who stood up for Daisy all those years ago. Daisy has never forgotten him, so running in to him in Trusty fulfills her dreams. Luke’s not sure what to make of his attraction to Daisy, he’s never wanted more than a one night stand with any woman, but Daisy takes his breath away. Can he lay his demons to rest? And more importantly will Daisy ever stay in Trusty?

Another good read from Melissa’s stable of hot romances filled with handsome, strong, often vulnerable men and intelligent, intriguing sexy women. Can be read as a stand alone or as part of the series.

We open our tour with Melissa Foster and her chosen book Taken by Love.


Where is your home town?


How long have you been writing romance?

Since 2011

What is your favourite sub-genre of romance?

I love contemporary and new adult romance.

The Bradens are part of a very successful series what is the first book in that series?

The Bradens are part of the Love in Bloom series, which follows several families. The Snow Sisters, Bradens, Remingtons, Seaside Summers gang, and the Ryders. The first book in the series is SISTERS IN LOVE (Snow Sisters, Book 1), and you meet Treat Braden (yum!), the hero in the first Braden book in book three, SISTERS IN WHITE. The Braden series is LOVERS AT HEART.

Did you always intend the books to be part of a series?

Absolutely! I had too many wonderful connections to ignore!

Taken by Love is about Daisy Honey, how much fun do you have with the names of your characters?

Names for my characters are so important to me. Without the right name, I simply can’t write them! Silly, but true! Daisy Honey’s name, IMHO, fit her perfectly. It was one of the things she’d spent her life trying to overcome, and I think it really helped her grow as a character.

What has happened to Daisy in the past and what brings her back to the town of Trusty?

Growing up, Daisy experienced a lot of bullying and teasing because of her name, and her incredibly sexy appearance, which was all natural. Many of us wish we looked like Daisy, and Daisy shows us how uncomfortable it can be. You’ll have to read the book to see why she returns to Trusty, CO

I’ve read several of your books and they can easily be stand-alone books as well as enjoyed as part of the series, do you have a favourite Hero/ Heroine from any of the books?

Oh goodness no! That would be like choosing a favorite child. I can’t do that. They’re all so wonderful!

Tell us what you are working on at the moment.

I’m currently working on The Ryders, the newest addition to the Love in Bloom family. The Ryders have been entrenched in the Seaside Summers, Remingtons, and Bradens series, and it’s time for them to find their happily ever afters.
