In Anything for Love…
After Charlotte Sterling loses her last family member, she moves to Sterling House, her family's Colorado mountain inn, to live a solitary life. As an erotic romance writer, her days and nights are filled with passion and intrigue—even if only fictional. She loves her busy, quiet lifestyle, and she learned early on that real men can't live up to the fictional heroes she creates—until ruggedly handsome Beau Braden arrives to do some work at the inn and, for the first time in forever, she's intrigued by a real man.
Beau lost his first love years ago, and he's never let go of his guilt over her death. As he nears the anniversary of his loss, he is on the cusp of becoming the star of a home-renovation reality show. Escaping the painful memories of his past to work at the defunct old inn is just the promise of solitude he needs to clear his head before diving in to the all-too-public career. But he didn't count on being attracted to the whimsical, adorably sexy innkeeper.
Neither Charlotte nor Beau is looking for an attachment or a fling. But the more they learn about each other, the closer they become. Romantic evenings lead to intimate conversations, and neither can deny their deep connection or the passion it sparks. They've never fully healed on their own, but together maybe anything is possible.

4.5 stars-encouraging and uplifting
4.5 stars--ANYTHING FOR LOVE is the second instalment in Melissa Foster’s contemporary, adult The Bradens and Montgomerys: Pleasant Hills-Oak Falls erotic, romance series- a spin off from the author’s Bradens at Pleasant Hill series. This is erotic romance writer Charlotte Sterling, and thirty-year old, carpenter/home rehabber Beau Braden’s story line. ANYTHING FOR LOVE can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary.
Told from dual third person perspectives (Beau and Charlotte) ANYTHING FOR LOVE follows the building relationships between erotic romance writer Charlotte Sterling, and carpenter/home rehabber Beau Braden. Charlotte Sterling gets lost in the novels she writes; lost in the fantasy lives and seductive nature of the erotic story line so much so that she often forgets about the real world around her. Inheriting the Sterling House, her family’s Colorado mountain inn, Charlotte leads a solitary life not noticing the small things including the much-needed repairs to the once majestic family home. Enter carpenter and repairman Beau Braden, and the man with whom Charlotte will fall in love. What ensues is the building romance between Beau and Charlotte, and the potential fall-out as Beau struggles with ghosts from the past.
Charlotte Sterling leads a quiet but quirky life alone in the Colorado Mountains. Inspiration for her erotic romance books comes from within and the unusual ‘props’ she stages throughout the Sterling Inn. Beau Braden battles with the guilt of losing someone close, a guilt that continues to eat at his heart, and his relationship with the people he loves the most. Meeting Charlotte Sterling enables Beau to let go of the past, and the remorse that has dogged him for close to ten years.
The relationship between Charlotte and Beau is one of immediate attraction but Beau’s time at the Sterling Inn is temporary, and he has no plans to fall in love. Falling in love with Beau Braden found our heroine taking time to explore the ‘real’ side of life, a side that begins to affect the fantasies in her mind. The $ex scenes are intimate, passionate and seductive without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text.
We are introduced to a very, large ensemble cast of colorful secondary and supporting characters including Beau’s siblings: Graham, Zev, Jillian, Jax and Nick, as well as their parents Lily and Clint: Beau’s best friend Duncan Raznick; and Ty and Aiyla (Thrill of Love). Melissa Foster has combined and integrated two of her Love in Bloom families –the Braden’s and the Montgomerys-you are going to need a spread sheet to keep track of your favourite characters and the blooming love. Graham’s story is next in Trails of Love.
ANYTHING FOR LOVE is a story of regret, romance, second chances, and love. The premise is encouraging and uplifting; the characters are spirited, wounded and inspiring; the romance is captivating and spicy. Melissa Foster’s passion for writing about the human spirit shows in her beautiful words and story line characters
