NEW RELEASE........


Tempest Braden adores her family and her small hometown, but sometimes too much of a good thing can be confining. At almost thirty, having watched most of her siblings find true love, she’s anxious to experience her own happily ever after, and the move to Pleasant Hill, Maryland, is just the change she needs. When she rents a room from ruggedly handsome, and closed-off, artist Nash Morgan and his adorable son, Phillip, she thinks she’s found a little slice of heaven on the outskirts of town, where she can concentrate on building her business. That is, if she can ignore the undeniable heat between her and the sinfully hot single father.

When Nash bought his farmette, he had one goal in mind—to provide a loving, stable home for his son. He never imagined he’d be raising Phillip alone, or renting out a room to keep their heads above water. Then again, he never imagined losing his brother, or spending two years sailing around the world with parents who seemed to forget one son was still alive.

Sparks fly from the moment Tempest moves in, and her positive energy and inquisitive nature brings new life into Nash and Phillip’s quiet, confined world. For the first time in years, Nash wants to let a woman into his world, but while his loss made him stronger, that strength came at a price, leaving him walled off and wary of opening his heart again.

WHISPER OF LOVE is part of the Love in Bloom series. While this can be read as a stand-alone novel, for even more reading enjoyment you may want to read the entire Love in Bloom series in series order.

One of the things that I find attractive is a man who single-handedly takes care of his child. A man who is willing to give up his carefree lifestyle to ensure that his child has the best of everything.  Nash Morgan from Whisper of Love is the epitome of such a man. From the moment I met him, I could not help falling in love with him.  Then there was his adorable baby boy Phillip, I just wanted to hug him.  The bond between a parent and a child is so profound, and Melissa Foster aptly demonstrated this in her latest installment.

Nash had dedicated his life to taking care of his son as such he rarely had time for inter-personal relationships. This was further compounded by events from his past, which he has yet to come to terms with.  These events induced a fear within him that led to him being overprotective of his son.  His over-protectiveness led to him, keeping both he and his son in seclusion.  Financial constraints would see him making a hard decision, which would lead to him admitting a stranger into his life. Making this decision resulted in him meeting the fiery and cautious Tempest Braden, which would push him beyond his boundaries in ways he never imagined.

Tempest Braeden, a music therapist is looking to take her business in a new direction. To do this she decided to move to Pleasant Hill.   Being an overly cautious person, she was a bit hesitant in renting the room that Nash was subletting. However, once she let down her guard and made the choice of being room-mates with a complete stranger, she would learn that sometimes it does pay to throw caution to the wind.  

The attraction that Nash and Tempest felt for each other was intense and this was clear from the day they first met, however, fear and pain from the past proved a hindrance. Thankfully, their feelings were stronger than their fears, which led to them discovering the healing power of love.

I enjoyed the story, but the parts that resonated with me was the interaction between Nash and his son. Their moments together were heartwarming and funny.  The love they had for each other just rolled off the pages. I understood Nash’s protectiveness when it came to his son, although at times it may seem as if he went a bit overboard. I loved how Tempest was able to blend in with them and in the process helped them to view things in a different light.
One of the things that stand out for me with books written by this author is her portrayal of family and friendships. I love stories that demonstrate the beauty found in close-knit families and friendships that have survived varying obstacles. Ms. Foster has a knack for highlighting these themes in her stories in such a way that one cannot help but wish they were a part of something so beautiful.

Written in the third (3rd) person the story gave both Nash and Tempest’s perspectives.  The writing is beautiful, the pacing steady and the descriptions vivid.  There were varying ranges of emotions flowing through the story. There were moments of laughter, anguish, and sadness which when combined created a story that left me wanting more.

 Verdict:
This is a great addition to the Bradens at Peaceful Harbor series. If you enjoy romance stories that are sweet, heartfelt and passionate then you will love Whisper of Love.

N.B. Although it is a part of a series, it is a stand-alone read.
