Daring Her Love - coverIn DARING HER LOVE

Kat Martin knows what she wants in a man—someone stable and adoring, definitely not the type of guy who sleeps around. After all, Kat rarely does the wrong thing—until she meets seductively enticing Eric James, and suddenly wrong has never felt so right.

When it comes to his career, race-car driver Eric James is intense, obsessive, and passionate, but when it comes to sex, there’s only one kind—daring, unbridled, and no-strings-attached.

One stormy night, a delayed flight and the dangerous allure of the unknown leads Kat to throw caution to the wind, and she indulges in a rendezvous that she vows to immediately forget—but the secret tryst stirs something possessive in Eric, and forgetting is not an option.



Eric walked into the kitchen, freshly showered, with hair that looked towel dried and oh so sexy. His eyes immediately found Kat, and his lips curved up in a sinful smile that made her heart race. Every second they’d been together last night had brought them closer to each other and taught her more about herself. She could hardly believe that she’d blocked out the episode at the camp when she was younger, but now her fear of deep water made total sense. Eric had been so thoughtful with her last night when A white sports car navigating the winding curves of the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia. This car is designed and modelled by myself.

He had an innate ability to be seductive and careful at the same time, and that brought out the good girl and the bad girl in Kat. The combination had surprised her, after she’d tried for so long to be discerning and to act more responsibly. What she’d learned last night was that she was happier just being herself. She didn’t need to be with strangers. She simply hadn’t found the right man, one who brought out the naughty and the nice aspects of her personality the way Eric did. Going skinny-dipping with him was the biggest thrill, and the most intimate moment, she’d ever shared with a man. Maybe she should be embarrassed by her brazenness in initiating the striptease, but she wasn’t. Not one single bit. How could she be when her heart felt so full? And now, as she watched Eric press a kiss to Christian’s cheek and swoop Layla into his arms as she walked toward the kitchen, making her giggle like crazy, she found herself picturing Eric as a father.

“Are you cooking this morning?” Eric asked Layla, bringing Kat’s mind back to the moment.

Shocked at where her mind had traveled, she tried to distract herself from her thoughts by taking a sip of orange juice. It didn’t help.


It was a dark and stormy night, and flights were delayed . . . .

Kat Martin has been jaded by a history of meaningless hook-ups. As she heads to Colorado to visit her good friend, Brianna Heart Braden, Kat makes the decision that she’s done with her past lifestyle and is going to hold out for “The One”.

Dashing race car driver, Eric James, is also headed to visit his good friend, Hugh Braden. Tired of his playboy life, Eric had witnessed the love shared in the Braden family and longs to find that for himself.

Unbeknownst to the other, both are headed to the Braden’s ranch when a flight delay finds both of them in an airport lounge. Daring Her Love - R&E Tour teaser 1The attraction between the two strangers is instant and the sexual energy drives them both into some frenzied action in an airport men’s room. Yowza! Once they both discover their relation to the Braden family, and that they are both headed to the same destination, all bets are off.  What follows is a smokin’ hot courtship between an alpha male insta-loving his lady, giving new definition to the phrase “Rocky Mountain High.”

Daring Her Love is Melissa Foster’s latest novella in her The Bradens (Weston, CO) Series, as well as being the newest publication in the popular 1001 Dark Nights Series. With that in mind, this reader came in with high expectations, and was not disappointed! The chemistry between these two characters was spectacular in the I-can-feel-my-face-flush kind of way. The insta-love Eric acts upon is exactly what one would expect from author Foster. The plot served its purpose — there is a twist from the past that provides reinforcement for the fate of this couple. And while there are Bradens wandering about everywhere, make no mistake — this is a standalone novella — you do not have to have read any of the The Bradens Series to enjoy this story. So whether you saddle up your mount, or put your engine in overdrive, take an exhilarating ride with Melissa Foster’s Daring Her Love. It’s worth the rush.
