Love hot cowboys?

Rex Braden is wealthy, hard working, and fiercely loyal. Sweat at his brow, he works the family ranch by day, then kicks back at night with part time lovers who require nothing more than his physical presence a few times each week. But that was before. Before Jade Johnson, the daughter of the man his father has been feuding with for over forty years, moves back into town.

After ditching a horrific relationship--and her veterinary practice in the process--Jade Johnson returns to the safety of her small hometown and finally finds her footing. That is...until her horse is injured and Rex Braden comes to her rescue. The last thing she needs is a bull-headed, too-handsome-for-his-own-good Braden complicating her life.

Despite the angry family history, sparks fly between Rex and Jade, and attitudes follow. Fifteen years of stifled, forbidden love stirs a surge of passion too strong for either to deny--and the rebel in each of them rears its powerful head. Loyalties are tested, and relationships are strained. Rex and Jade are about to find out if true love really can conquer all.

Jade and Rex

A lovely story of two star crossed lovers. Jade is a wonderful woman burned in love......Rex is a homebody who never found the right girl......or he did long ago and never acted on it. Their chance to make them both happy is full of drama and fun times. A great story but I’m not thrilled with the narrator. I sometimes have a hard time with a male narrator or doesn’t do female voices well. It feels forced to me but it doesn’t make you not want to know what happens !

Great Read

Destined for Love was another great read by Melissa Foster. Rex Braden works hard on his family ranch during the day. He has always just had physical relationships but never close enough for an emotional one. But Jade Johnson changes when she moves back into town. The only thing in their way was the fact that their father's have been feuding for over forty years. I absolutely loved listening to Jade and Rex's story. This was another great audiobook by Melissa Foster.

Destianed for love

Your book that I have just finished reading is the best I have read in a long,long time. It was so interesting that I couldn't put it down. The story made me Remenber the long days on the farm which I loved. The story was really put together with people that that had a hard life and had to refrain from taking their love public. I went through some of the crap that Jade and Rex had to endure but joined the military instead of staying home. When I returned 20 years later all the bad stuff was gone and so I settled down. Now as a retired disable veteran I just read books on my iPad. So, keep up the good writing and look forward to read many more of your books. Thank you for being an excellent writer.
