Love in Bloom: The Ryders #2
By: Melissa Foster
Releasing March 23, 2016
World Literary Press
Family law attorney Gabriella Liakos has one true love, Elpitha Island, where she grew up and hopes someday to return. But Elpitha is in financial ruins, and Gabriella will do anything to keep it from falling into the wrong hands.
Duke Ryder is a savvy real estate investor set on making Elpitha into an exclusive resort. Unlike other investors, he’s not scared of purchasing a property where one family has roots so deep they practically reach the ocean floor…until he meets his beautiful, stubborn, and enticing tour host―the daughter of the owner of most of the island.
Gabriella sets out to dissuade Duke from purchasing Elpitha, but Duke has other ideas. He wants Gabriella and the island. Duke’s powerful seduction draws Gabriella in, but can a savvy investor who’s used to glamour and glitz, and a woman interested in preserving the culture she adores find a happily ever after together?

Thanks to Melissa Foster and Tasty Book Tours for the opportunity to continue to read and review this amazing author! I have been hooked since the beginning with the Snow sisters. As long as Melissa keeps writing, I will continue reading!!
What I loved most about this story was the strength of the family aspect. I loved the Duke had a plan in mind but once he realized how strong Gabriella’s roots were, he decided to follow his heart and keep the family roots in tact. Gabriella tried to separate their romance and the business, but Duke Ryder was hard to resist. I love that Gabriella wanted to push back with the Grandfather and not sell the Island, but knew that something needed to be done to help the island.
My favorite part…well, I can’t tell you that since it will spoil the ending! I loved seeing some of our beloved family members from previous books!
