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.

...the best book I've forgotten to read.
Taken by Love could be the best book I've forgotten to read. I was disappointed to have overlooked such a devastatingly, powerful love story. Lucky for me, I happened to stumble across Daisy Honey and Luke Braden in audio. There's something about a Foster novel that changes the way you look at life. Daisy and Luke have the sweetest hearts, but are bogged down by less than stellar reputations. In a town where gossip runs rampant, two acquaintances find that they never really knew each other at all. If Melissa Foster has a way with words, B.J. Harrison has a gift for breathing new life into the way a heart looks at the real word
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!
