Book #11 The Bradens, Love in Bloom Series #19
Emily Braden is a leader in architectural preservation, a pillar in her small hometown, and successful in everything she does—with the exception of finding true love. She’s watched several of her brothers fall in love, and she needs this trip to Tuscany to get away from it all and to stop focusing on what she doesn’t have.
Dae Bray doesn’t do flings, and he never stays in one place for very long. As a demolitionist, he goes where jobs take him, and the more often he travels, the better. His trip to Tuscany is all work—until he meets smart and sexy Emily, who makes him reconsider his fear of settling down, his no-fling rule—and just about everything else he’s ever believed about himself.
Passion sizzles as Dae and Emily explore the history and beauty of Tuscany. Their romance moves beyond tourist attractions to the bedroom, blossoming into a deep connection neither can deny. But their worlds collide when Emily wants to preserve the property that Dae is there to demolish. Can a woman who sees the beauty in preservation and a man whose life is spent tearing things down find a solid foundation for their love?
THE BRADEN COUSINS are one of the newest additions to the LOVE IN BLOOM series.

You all know I am a big, big fan of Melissa Foster and her romance series.
I am also a huge fan of all the Braden’s – the originals and the cousins! They are a family I would die to be a part of.
All of the Braden boys are hunky men who know how to treat a woman right and protect their sister (each Braden clan has one sister with a bunch of hot brothers).
In Dreaming of Love, we got to spend time with Emily Braden – someone we have met on and off as the Braden sister who is professional, beautiful, works hard, and is extremely successful.
Lucky for her, her brothers love her and one of her brothers gifts her a trip to Tuscany as a vacation – a place she has always wanted to visit, but has never taken the time away from work to do just that.
And she doesn’t plan on vacationing in Tuscany without constantly checking in at work.
Until she meets Dae her first night.
Oh Dae. (And not to spoil it, but if you are a Seaside Girls fan, you may find a little surprise!)
I wish Dae had brothers so we continue on with some hunky boys like him, but alas, he has sisters. Fortunately for me, another reader reminded me that Dae does have brothers! I totally forgot the brothers and only remembered the sisters! (I also got told that the Bray family is coming, too! Another thing to look forward too!)
Dae is exactly what Emily needs to put her work on hold and enjoy life; and frankly, I think Emily is exactly what Dae needs to find the beauty in his profession – such as the House of Wishes (which I must admit, I am a total sucker for).
I had a perma-smile reading Dreaming in Love and definitely have moved this to the top of my favorites of Melissa’s books.
