In Surrender My Love:
Annalise "Leesa" Avalon never realized that one sentence could change her life until one of her students revealed his crush - and within 24 hours she finds herself under fire. After a grueling investigation that turns her life upside down, she steals away to Peaceful Harbor, Maryland, with a new identity to try to pull herself back together and figure out her next step.
From the outside, Cole Braden lives a charmed life. He's a top orthopedic surgeon with a thriving practice, strong family ties, and friends he adores. But there's a lonely spot inside Cole that no one can see. He has an enormous heart - and a painful past - but the desire to love and be loved is too strong to ignore.
A chance encounter brings Leesa and Cole together, and the attraction is immediate and intense. But a relationship is the last thing Leesa needs - and the only thing Cole wants. Long talks, heated moments, and deep connections are hard to resist, but the harder Cole tries, the more Leesa pulls away. Cole might truly be the right man for Leesa, but is Leesa the right woman for him?

...still has the power to break my heart.
Surrender My Love still has the power to break my heart. I fell irrevocably in love with Cole Braden just as quickly as he fell for Leesa. My heart melted at how compassionate he was toward her. Betrayal points one courageous woman toward a second chance at a happy ending. I first set eyes on Lessa and Cole's emotional yet inspiring journey of love, five years ago. Yet it seems like no time has passed at all. Foster continues to make an impact with heartaching emotion, inspirational stories and unforgettable characters.
A well written story on a timely subject...
Another great story by Melissa Foster….This book continues with the Braden family from Peaceful Harbor but can certainly be read as a stand alone. I have read the book as well as listened to the audio version and enjoyed both equally. BJ Harrison is an accomplished narrator who does a great job and is very easy to listen to.
Annalise (who chooses to use the name Leesa) has lived through a traumatic experience and has moved to Pleasant Hill to regroup and to spend time with a friend. She is a middle school teacher who loves her job and the impact she knows she can make on their lives.
Cole is the oldest of the Braden siblings and he is a handsome, determined and focused orthopedic surgeon. He and Leesa meet in a chance encounter at the local coffee shop and sparks fly! They cannot forget that meeting and when their paths seem to cross on several occasions, they begin to realize that maybe “fate” has brought them together.
I like Melissa’s style of writing. She has chosen a sensitive subject and has done a great job of sharing the emotions and the uncertainty of the situation. The plot was well developed and the characters were believable. I would recommend the book in either version… print or audio.
Great Small Town Feel
Surrender My Love is a standalone story that is part of the Bradens at Peaceful Harbor Series.
Annalise (Leesa) Avalon comes to Peaceful Harbor trying to escape the mess that she finds her life in. She is quickly embraced by the community and she jumps pretty quickly into a relationship with sexy doctor Cole Braden. But Leesa soon realizes that she needs to deal with her past before she can find happiness in her future.
“I feel like I’ve waited my whole life to meet you. When you’re ready I’ll be here, whether it takes a day, a week or a year.”
I love Peaceful Harbor and getting to know more Bradens and their neighbors. This author really delivers with small town romance feel.
I listened to this story on audiobook and enjoyed the very enjoyable narration.
