Healed by Love by Melissa Foster & GIVEAWAY

Book #1 The Bradens of Peaceful Harbor, Book #13 The Bradens series, Love in Bloom #25

Meet the Bradens of Peaceful Harbor and fall in love with Nate Braden & Jewel Fisher in Healed by Love.

Nate Braden has loved his best friend’s younger sister Jewel for as long as he can remember, but between their age difference and his respect for Rick, he’s always kept his feelings at bay. Now he’s back in Peaceful Harbor, and Jewel is no longer sixteen years old—but there’s an even bigger obstacle standing in his way. Nate and Rick joined the military together eight years earlier. Nate came home a hero, but Rick didn’t make it out alive.

THE BRADENS AT PEACEFUL HARBOR are one of the newest additions to the Braden series and the LOVE IN BLOOM family.

My Thoughts…

I love this branch of the Bradens.   They are the cousins of Hal’s family and just as scrumptious.   Nate is a military man, YUM!, and is dealing with the loss of his best friend, Rick.  After two years of being gone he has returned home to the place he has avoided, Peaceful Harbor.    I felt for Nate.  Nate and Rick  went to war together, Nate came home a hero and Rick did not make it home at all.    The guilt is overwhelming.   Add to that guilt that fact that you are in love with his little sister and it could do a weaker man in.    Thank God for his strong family.    The Bradens, no matter which branch of the tree they come from, all have that in common.   They are strong, loyal, and fierce in protecting each other.    

Jewel, Rick’s little sister, has loved Nate forever.   Now that he is home she knows that she has to have him.    She doesn’t want a one night stand she wants forever, until Nate shares his secret.   It could be enough to tear them apart or it could pull them together. 

Anyone who has read Melissa Foster’s books before know that they should expect strong characters.   Both Jewel and Nate are incredibly strong.    They have their beliefs, know what they want, and know where they want to end up.   The fun is how they got there. 

I cannot believe this is book #21 in the Love in Bloom series(#13 in the Braden part of the series), I have read them all and keep falling in love with all the characters.  I cannot wait for more from Melissa Foster.
