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.
Taken by Love is part of the Love in Bloom series. While it can be heard as a stand-alone novel, for even more enjoyment, you may want to listen to the entire Love in Bloom series in order. Characters from each sub-series appear in future books.

Will Dr. Honey find a new place to call home?
Loved this sweet story by Melissa Foster. Daisy Honey left Trusty, Colorado behind to pursue her dream of being a doctor--and to escape an undeserved rumor that destroyed her reputation. She comes home to Trusty to help her family out while she thinks about job offers she has in the big city, and while working in the small urgent care clinic she starts to fall in love with the town again, as well as handsome Luke Braden who stood up for her so many years ago. With the air between them heating up and almost literally sparking--the chemistry of these two lead characters is HOT. I loved the narration of the audio book--the dialogue and story flows well.
Trust leads to love in Trusty
Daisy left Trusty years ago after being bullied. She’s returned home to be the towns doctor. Luke Braden a local good hometown boy had defended her in the past. Now that they are older they have found that they can’t out run their past but I believe it eventually made them stronger. I love BJ Harrison’s voice as the narrator!
Dr. Daisy Honey
Dr. Daisy Honey, gosh I love her name, is probably my favorite female character in all of Melissa Foster’s Snow Sister Series. Her sense of home is amazing and something that I could easily relate to. I stayed close to parents and family, knowing that I needed them as much as they needed me. When she runs into Luke, again, after going away to college to become a doctor the sparks were so obvious and hot. The original sparks could be due to her remembering how he protected and stood up for her when she was in high school, but it was quickly obvious that it was so much more than that. The longer she stays in her home town, Trusty, the more she realizes that the town needs her as much as she needs the town and the security, friendships, and love it offers.
I love Melissa Foster’s style. She constantly pulls me in making the characters seem more like friends that just characters in a book. I can picture the towns I visit in her books, along with the people who live in these towns. As with the rest of this series, I highly recommend it
