Summary

Surrender My Love is a USA TODAY best-seller.

The Bradens are a series of stand-alone romances that may also be enjoyed as part of the larger Love in Bloom series.

Fall in love with Cole Braden in the Bradens of Peaceful Harbor. Hot, sexy, & wickedly naughty second cousins to the Weston, Colorado Bradens we know and love.

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?

An Act of Courage!

Melissa has put her heart and soul in telling of this story. B. J. Harrison's narration of it will give you thrills.
Cole Braden had a big heart toward everyone and was an orthopedic doctor. He met Leesa when she went into a coffee shop to get her friend a coffee and muffin. He was immediately intrigued by her. Leesa had lost everything when a 12 year old boy accused her of fondling him. She was his teacher. Even though the charges had been dropped, it still ruined her life because of his lie. Her boyfriend even dropped her. She had been in Peaceful Harbor for two weeks helping her friend and she took her to the doctor's office to get her cast off. In walks Dr. Cole Braden. Then things get hot. Will they get untangled from her mess? A WOW story!

I surrender

Melissa Foster never disappoints. Cole is super delicious in this new Braden book. Set aside the whole 8 hours and 8 minutes because once you start you won't want to stop. Always sweet, always sexy, always a good book from Melissa Foster.

Wonderful story

I loved listening to Cole & Leesa’s story. The narrator voice is very soothing and makes it very easy to listen to. You could tell right away that Cole and Leesa were sole-mates. Leesa had come to Peaceful Harbor to escape false accusations in her hometown. She meets Cole and they are immediately attracted to each other. Leesa has to decide whether to put the past behind her and start over with Cole or go back and try and start over in her hometown. As she and Cole become closer it becomes clear to her that Cole is her future.

I Loved It!

I absolutely loved it. This book really hits home, because Leesa used to be a teacher, and I was a teacher for 30 years. Leesa had had a student that had accused her of being inappropriate with him. Even though the investigators cleared her of all charges, Melissa Foster did a great job showing how this still affects her. She comes to Peaceful Harbor, where she meets hot and sexy Cole Braden, an orthopedic surgeon. Instant Chemistry! It is a wonderful story of love and forgiveness. Also, by listening to it, B.J. Harrison did such a good job narrating this book. He is one of the best.

Paging the Hot Dr. Braden

Cole and Leesa's story really hit home for me. I have a friend who when through the same thing as Leesa. It has a forever effect on your life and those around you. With the love of those around you, you can see what really matters in life and turn things around.

Once I started reading I could not put the book down. Leesa loves what she does and does what she loves. Lies cause her to loose what she loves doing and leaving town to think things over and decide what to do next. She goes to Peaceful Harbor and stays with her friend Tegan. It turns out that staying with Tegan is the best decision she has made. While out getting coffee she bumps into the very hot Dr. Cole Braden.

Cole Braden is a well respected Dr. who is liked and loved by all who know him. He bumps into Leesa at the coffee shop while she takes the last of his favorite coffee and muffin. There is an immediate attraction between the two. Cole is busy with his medical practice but would like to fall in love. Due to things going on in Leesa's life, she wants to stay under the radar but Cole wants her and is not worried about what is going on in her life.

Cole is willing to take a chance on Leesa but is she willing to take a chance on him and finding her happily ever after? Read the book to find out. Melissa Foster never disappoints. This is the 2nd book in the Peaceful Harbor series of the Love in Bloom series. BJ Harrison does a great job narrating once again. I felt like I was right there and wanted to listen again when it was done.

Great story

Surrender My Love is the second book in The Bradens at Peaceful Harbor series. Cole is a hot and sexy, smooth-talking flirt when the story starts. As it develops, he shows that he is family-oriented, a one-woman man seeking his one. Annalise has been hurt by people she thought she could trust when she lost her home, career, and reputation. Turning to Peaceful Harbor, it becomes her safe haven. A chance encounter with Cole turns Annalise's world upside down. Can she ever trust him? What will come of Cole and Annalise? Will they be able to learn to lean on each other and find what they need together? I enjoyed this story and listening to this narrator, and I definitely recommend this book.

Open To Love

Surrender My Love (The Bradens at Peaceful Harbor, MD Cole Braden) by Melissa Foster
I received an audio ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Dr. Cole Braden is a dedicated orthopedic surgeon, family man and great friend who works long hours and doesn't seem to have time for anything else, until he meets Annalise "Leesa" Avalon, new to Peaceful Harbor. There's immediate attraction when they meet at the coffee shop, but Leesa is in Peaceful Harbor trying to decide what direction her life should take.

Leesa suffered character assassination at the hands of one of her students. Although she's been cleared of any wrongdoing she fears the stigma of having been accused of improper behavior will follow her wherever she goes. Once she and Cole get closer, she worries about repercussions to his life as well.

Cole is the quintessential Braden male, sexy, strong, bright and protective. He's so supportive of Leesa, but understands she needs to come to terms with the past in order for them to have a real future. Wanting to fix things for her, but knowing there are some things Leesa needs to do herself, causes no small amount of frustration for Cole as he fears she will leave Peaceful Harbor.

It's a complicated story with self revelations for each character. Their love is real with sizzling heat, yet sweet understanding.

I've become a huge fan of B.J. Harrison who is such a talent at "becoming" each character. I will confess to listening to Surrender My Love more than once. A perfect companion for a long drive.

Peaceful Harbor = peace to a turbulent past?

Cole Braden is a hardworking, driven doctor in Peaceful Harbor. Leesa comes to Peaceful Harbor to stay with a friend and to escape from the aftermath of false accusations in her home town. Cole and Leesa meet at a coffee shop and are attracted to each other but they don't act on it until after seeing each other again at her friend's appointment, because as it turns out, Cole is her doctor.

Leesa has some decisions to make. She won't be at peace until she can put her past behind her. Should she go home? Take a new job in Baltimore? Or stay in Peaceful Harbor? As Cole and Leesa grow closer, that question becomes more and more of an issue.

I loved listening to this book after reading it when it was first released to the print version. There was something about B.J.'s narration of this that made me love Cole even more. I've recently learned that listening to the audio version of these books allows my brain to better visualize and really feel the emotions from the book. I'm addicted to listening to all audio versions of Melissa's books.
