Editorial Reviews


"Grace and Reed are an irresistible cocktail of hotter-than-hot sex and tender vulnerability, and Grace's ...the sheer depth of Grace and Reed's love will leave readers feeling utterly sated." (BookLife)

"Grace and Reed are
characters that could walk off the pages, they are so realistic...a second chance contemporary romance that had me swooning over the hero and empathizing with the heroine." - TOP PICK, The Romance Reviews

"Embracing Her Heart is
a heartfelt, emotional romance that delivers!" - Bestselling author Jessica Lemmon

"Embracing Her Heart brings
a colorful canvas of heat, heart and humor to an already picturesque landscape." - Isha, Hopeless Romantic

"Embracing Her Heart is
a warm, feel good love story and holds a special place on my keeper shelf!" - Susan, Lady Celeste Reads Romance

I loved Grace Montgomery as soon as I met her. She is tough, passionate and hard working. Grace is also extremely loyal. She's not the rebellious type. Except maybe when it came to Reed Cross." - Emma, Star-Crossed Reviews

"A perfect choice for those of us who love
a good contemporary romance and some southern charm!" - Jordan, Wicked Reads

If you love cowboys, or just hot, sexy shirtless guys on horses - then this is the book for you. We are treated to the vision of a shirtless Reed Cross, not to mention the Jericho brothers, in chapter one. It can only get better...and it does." - Lynn, Goodreads

"The chemistry between Reed and Grace
was hot!" - Avid Reader

"Reed was definitely an alpha male personality, but boy did he have some serious sweet romantic bones in his body! The things he did for his "Gracie". They were
swoon worthy!!!" - Amy, BookLvr

I devoured this book. I love small town romances. I love second chance romances. This book is the best of both worlds for me." - Jennifer, Goodreads

Don't hesitate to buy this great book and absorb yourself into this fabulous family and this great community!!" - Patti, Goodreads

"Melissa manages to make me cry so often in her books and
she did it again this time. These were tears because it was so sweet and I was so happy not tears because I was sad, by the way." - Emma, Star-Crossed Reviews

From the Author

Two Love in Bloom Worlds Become One!

Meet the Bradens & Montgomerys (Pleasant Hill - Oak Falls)

I am thrilled to share some exciting news with you! The Bradens at Pleasant Hill and the Montgomerys have become one magnificent series! In book three, Trails of Love, the Montgomerys and the Bradens are going to be deeply intertwined. For that reason, I am combining the series to make it easier for readers to keep track of characters, weddings, babies, etc. What this will mean is that after the first two books (Embracing Her Heart and Anything for Love) you will see both worlds in most of the books. Some stories might weigh more heavily in one location than the other, but they are all going to cross over.
In book one, Embracing Her Heart you will met the Montgomerys, and in book two, Anything for Love, you will meet the Bradens. I hope you love them all as much as I do!
