TAKEN BY LOVE is the newest addition 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.

I have read a number of romance novels, but never anything by Melissa Foster.  On completing Taken by Love I had to ask myself, ‘What took me so long to discover this author?’ I am now compelled to read more of her work.
Taken by Love is a beautiful and heartwarming story of love,
acceptance and forgiveness. It depicts how being able to forgive and letting go
of the hurts of the past lead to greater things in our future.
This is an easy read with characters that  are lovable and easy to relate to.  My favourite is Dr. Honey Davis. She had been through so much as a teenager in the town of Trusty that she was not willing to return after she had completed her medical studies. However, when her dad met with an accident, she returned home all but reluctantly.  It was during this time that she found love with no other than her  high school crush, Luke Braden.   She also was able to move pass the pain of her past and came to the realization that things were not the same as before.  Her power to let go of all the pain and hurt equipped her with the ability to  achieve her dreams in a town she once hated.
The romance between Luke and Honey  was believable and sweet. They just
complement each other so well. They had a history  and I liked how the author built on that in the development of their romance.  
If you enjoy romance, then you need to get yourself a copy of this book.
