Can a man who resents the hand he’s been dealt and a woman who spends her days grateful for every little thing find true love in each other’s arms—or are their differences stronger than both of them? Find out in this funny, sexy, heartfelt romance, and fall in love with Grant and Jules on the sandy shores of Silver Island, home to coffee shops, boat races, and midnight rendezvous. My True Love is a USA Today Bestseller.
Even war heroes need a little help sometimes...After spending years fighting for his country and too damn long learning to navigate life with a prosthetic leg, Grant Silver returns to Silver Island to figure out a future he couldn’t fathom without fatigues and a gun in his hand. He’d almost forgotten how a man could suffocate from the warmth and caring community in which he’d grown up, and if that weren’t bad enough, his buddies’ beautiful and far-too-chipper younger sister won’t stop flitting into his life, trying to sprinkle happy dust everywhere she goes.
As a cancer survivor, Jules Steele knows better than to count on seeing tomorrow. She doesn't take a single moment for granted, and she isn’t about to let a man who used to be charming and full of life waste the future he’s been blessed with. She's determined to get through to him, even if it takes a few steamy kisses...

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

I enjoyed every moment of this story. A note of warning: if you are a reader who tears up while reading emotional stories then you will need a box or two of tissues. Foster outdone herself on this one.

My True Love centres around Grant Silver and Jules Steele. Grant has returned home to Silver Island after losing his leg in an explosion while serving his country. The accident and the resulting consequence changed him. Depressed and angry, he withdrew himself from his family and friends. He avoided social activities and anything which required any form of interaction with others.

Jules decided enough was enough, and she made it her duty to pull Grant out of his current state and restore his once vibrant personality while reconnecting with his family and friends.

My heart grieved for Grant. I wouldn’t understand what it means to lose a limb, but it was clear he was not in a good place. Stir in unresolved issues from the past and you have a bomb ready to explode. However, Jules storming into his life proved the perfect defuse.

Jules optimistic approach to life made her a hit with everyone. She tries to find the good in a bad situation. Therefore, it came as no surprise when Grant became her new project. Soon she would wear him down with her adorable attempts.

If given the choice in choosing my favourite Melissa Foster couple, Grant and Jules would top the list. Their interactions which had me smiling and tearing up and many times throughout the story. What a treat to see them both work through their issues together.

Readers who love their romance hot and sweet will be in for a treat. My True Love had the perfect blend of heat and sweetness.

Foster creates secondary characters one cannot help but love, and this time was no different. They added life to the story with their pranks, teasing and advice.

In this captivating and inspiring story that pulls the reader into the lives of the characters, readers are reminded that love is a powerful emotion that facilitates healing and restoration. My True Love was simply a beautiful story of healing, love, and finding one’s purpose.

A must read for fans of contemporary romance.

Tempted by Love (The Steeles at Silver Island, Book 1)

Enjoy heart-meltingly beautiful and toe-curlingly sexy romance in Tempted by Love, an emotionally riveting story about a man who has lost it all and carries a torturous secret, a porced single mother who has everything to lose, and the little girl who helps them heal. Fall in love on the sandy shores of Silver Island, home to coffee shops, boat races, midnight rendezvous, and the sexy, sharp-witted Steeles.

Years ago, bestselling author Jack “Jock” Steele lost his girlfriend and baby in a horrific accident that drove a wedge between Jock and his family, keeping him from sharing a devastating secret. An aging philanthropist saved him from the brink of despair, and for a decade Jock cared for his ailing friend who became his family. Now his friend has passed away and left him a fortune—on the condition that he publishes another book. Jock is floundering, unsure how to rebuild the life he’d walked away from, much less find his muse, have another relationship with a woman, or even think about having a family of his own. But he can’t get his sweet, sexy new friend, single-mother Daphne Zablonski out of his head, and her adorable toddler must know something he doesn’t, because she wraps her tiny fingers around his heart and won’t let go.

Daphne has been through the wringer with her ex-husband and doesn’t believe true love is in the cards for her. Friends she can handle, but letting a man see her mom bod naked? Especially someone as strikingly handsome and unbelievably sexy as Jock? No, thank you. Besides, she has a toddler to chase after and enough fictional boyfriends to fill her lonely nights. If only her book boyfriends could make her body tingle the way one look from her mysterious neighbor does.

As Jock and Daphne’s friendship turns to something too tempting to deny, their lives take an unexpected turn. Can a man who has lost everything find redemption with a woman who has everything to lose? And then there’s that secret…

Archer Steele is one of the leading vintners on the East Coast. He’s arrogant, aggressive, and has never been interested in settling down, which is what makes his hookups with his sister’s beautiful blond best friend, hair and makeup artist Indi Oliver, the perfect escape. But Indi’s toying with moving to the island, and when she ends their no-strings trysts to focus on her business, Archer isn’t ready to let her go…

  1. I’m so happy you enjoyed the book. I’m not much of a lover of books that make me weep as I read to escape reality so I like ones that give me that thrilled feeling or make me smile. Great review.

  2. I have really wanted to try this author Nadene but this looks like the book that will have me clicking some buy links. Thanks 🙂
    ps. I’ve been awol for awhile because my husband had a stroke two weeks ago. He’s doing well, recovering at home but things have changed in my life once again. I know they say God only gives you what you can bear but I think I have reached my limit. xo
