I absolutely love books by Melissa Foster. They're light yet full, fun, safe, sweet, romantic, sexy, relevant, and brilliantly constructed. WHISPER OF LOVE was no exception!

I found, once again, that the characters were easy to love. Tempest was a music therapist with a heart of gold. Her beauty went far beyond skin deep. She was ambitious, family-oriented, extremely loving, and as pure a soul as one can find in any book. Nash was a bit of a tort

Great read! This story was adorable! I loved Nash as a father, a brother and a boyfriend, and I loved how Tempest could help him through his healing. Can’t wait to read more in this series!

Welcome back to Peaceful Harbor! In this fifth installment to the series, Tempest Braden rents a room from a closed-off artist named Nash Morgan. She hopes to be able to concentrate on her blooming business. However, Nash and his adorable son, Phillip, become a presence she can’t ignore.

I feel like I always say this with Melissa Foster’s books but I just love how this woman writes small-town romances. It has just the right amount of coziness that readers feel right at home when they pick up

Whisper of Love is the fifth book in the Bradens at Peaceful Harbor series and the thirty seventh in the Love in Bloom series by Melissa Foster. True to form for Foster, it was well written, well developed and filled with depth and dimension.

Tempest "Tempe" Braden was the beautiful, kind, sincere and authentic music therapist to children. Nash Morgan was the gorgeous, rugged, silent, cautious, single parent and artist. Phillip Morgan was Nash's adorable three year old son. He brought many cute

Oh lordy, lordy! This book...grab some tissues, you're gonna need them. I virtually cried my way through the last few chapters. But then Melissa throws in a funny line, that makes me laugh through my tears. Being able to evoke such feelings when you're reading, that's a sign of an excellent writer. I am a big fan of Melissa Foster and love her books, but when I read Tru Blue last year I was blown away. I worry that she won't be able to continue amazing me with her characters and storylines, but ...more

ARC Review: Whisper of Love (Love in Bloom: The Bradens of Peaceful Harbor) by Melissa Foster

A twist of fate, a splash of irony and whole lot of heart prove to be the driving force behind Whisper of Love. Melissa Foster does it again with laughter, love and soul stirring emotion. Tempest has a big heart and the love of a good family, but she has yet to find her heart's desire, her soul mate like her siblings have done. Nash is a man with an abundance of love to give, but a past tragedy has shape

Whisper of Love is new favorite Melissa Foster story. I loved the sweet romance that was fairly light on angst.
Nash Morgan is a single dad with a room to rent... Tempest Braden is looking for a change from her small hometown. The chemistry is immediate and incendiary between Nash and Tempest but Nash isn’t sure he is ready to open up and let anyone in to the world he has created for himself and Phillip.
I listened to the audiobook of this and really enjoyed the wonderful narration.

Seriously! I’m not embarrassed to admit that Whispers of love made me cry. It made me cry big fat happy tears that just rolled down my cheeks as I was laughing and sobbing. Yes, this is what I have become. A complete and utterly sucker for sweet romance written by Melissa Foster!

Tempe is used to helping other people. She is actually very good at putting her own needs on the back burner, but she loves helping others, so she doesn’t see it as a problem. Her heart is burning for her children’s musi

Melissa Foster has taken a page from reality, sprinkled her Magic Dust on it and... given us Whipers of Love. This is a wonderful read!!. This latest book was so relatable to so many single parents. It was a breath of fresh air to read what so many wish for. Tempest Braden and Nash Morgan are a great example of selflessness and a true definition of love.
Nadene  (Totally Addicted to Reading)
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 ...more

OH MY GOD ..... The feels people ... ALL THE FEELS! I've said this before and I'll say it again and again, Melissa Foster has a beautiful talent. Her story-telling style is all heart. The journeys that she embarks us on are so sweet and heart-warming with passion and always sprinkled with a little bit of humor. She creates characters that are not only likeable but relatable. I am always SO excited when I can read one of her books! And it doesn't really matter where you start in her series, you'l ...more

Small town romance with a sexy single dad with the most adorable son and a sweet woman renting a room from him

Whisper of Love is a light hearted, small town romance with a sexy single dad with the most adorable son and a sweet woman renting a room from him. While it may use common themes of a single dad and housemates, Melissa Foster captures this in such a unique way that it feels completely new as you are reading it and I guarantee you will be flicking the pages as fast as I was to find out ho

This book will have you falling in love with Nash and Tempest and of course Phillip. Nash is a single dad to 3 year old Phillip. He is an artist who is just trying to do his best as a single dad and raise a good kid.

I can’t fully explain how excited I was to receive Tempest’s story and how much I love it, but I’ll try.
Here goes…something
I love the Bradens just like I love the Ryders and everything else Foster has written that I’ve had the pleasure of reading. Don’t doubt that I’m trying to read everything. She’s one of my favorite authors and this story is another example of why.
I’ve always loved Tempest’s character and her easy-going, laid-back, but cautious, personality. It took me no time to start crush

The winner of this book is the boy, Phillip. He had an amazing dad in Nash. Nash changed his entire world to make Phillip his entire world. Phillip also had Tempest. Tempest knew that little boys needed more than just an amazing daddy. She pushed both Phillip and Nash to step out of their wonderful little world and experience the rest of the world. Having both these strong people who loved him so much in his life made Phillip a well rounded, perfect little boy.

Whisper of Love is emotional, one

Love me some Philip

If you cannot resist Philip's charm, worst if you meet his Dad Nash? These father, and son is beyond adorable and vulnerable that is why Tempest cannot resist them both. I so loved this story as the rest of Melissa Foster's book.

Whisper Of Love is such a heart warming read. It is sweet, funny and at the same time very hot. Nash and Tempest cannot stop kissing. They will make you pant like you are in-front of the fireplace licking an ice cream.

This story is so emotional. Yo

Love is a fragile thing. It is not only hard to come by, but is hard to get perfect.

Tempest Braden is a cautious girl by nature. She has always had her close knit family within arms reach, but has decided to fly free and start over in a new town - albeit still close to home with extended family near by (remember--she is cautious to a fault).

Nash Morgan has more than just himself to look out for. He is solely responsible for a impressionable three-year old boy (and a mini farm). He is an artist w

This being a Melissa Foster book I immediately had to read it. I stopped very little as I just couldn’t put it down. This is the story of Tempest and Nash. If you love strong female characters, then you will like Tempest. Nash is also an amazing character who is a single father to Phillip. Just like Tempest I immediately fell in love with Nash and Phillip. I really loved how Tempest came and changed both of their lives for the better! This is another great hot and steamy read from Melissa. Even ...more

Tempest has moved to a new town for a fresh start, but living with her cousin is leaving her sleep deprived and unable to live her life. She looks for a place of her own, and rents a room from Nash and his small son Phillip.

Nash is a gruff, secretive man who will do literally anything for his son. They've never been apart, and they can spend a whole day communicating without saying a word to each other. Their love for each other is palpable, but Tempest points out that Phillip isn't learning to

Tempest Braden had moved to Pleasant Hill to make a fresh start. She had become too stressed out and overworked with providing her music therapy to hospital patients and wanted to take her business in a different direction by starting a children’s music group. First on her agenda though, is to find a place to rent. When she does, it’s a room on a farmette in the country. Perfect, but with one drawback. Her six-foot-plus hunky landlord is too much of a distraction. Or is he?

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

As I love all Ms Foster stories, I was so happy when this appeared on my list. It is another wonderfully life-affirming read. As with all the books in this series - and indeed all the interlinking books - knowledge from previous ones makes it even richer, but even as a stand alone it gives huge amounts of pleasure.

Sometimes the characters are loud and brash, yet always good - but here we get to meet two people who love

I honestly don't know how she does it, but Melissa Foster just seems to get better with each book she writes. I have loved her books since the first one of hers that I read, and I genuinely look forward to each new book she releases. She is at the top of my auto-buy list, and is the queen of contemporary romance. It amazes me how unique and different each story she writes is, yet I always feel so at home with her books.

Handsome and Artsy….that’s how Nash Morgan was described on a website when Tempest Braden looked him up. She figured that it was a great combination for a room mate. She had been temporarily bunking with her cousin, but because of the odd hours that she kept, Tempest NEEDED to find her own place where she could get her routine set up.

Nash Morgan is a single dad who used to be an artist. He started making furniture when his son was born in order to pay the bills. The furniture is beautiful and or

I received an audio ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I love audio books and B.J. Harrison is one of my favorite narrators. He continually does an exceptional job of breathing life into Melissa Foster's unforgettable characters, putting you in the middle of the story with his ability.
