Claimed by Love
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?


Claimed by Love (Love In Bloom: The Ryders #2) by Melissa Foster is a love story that just brought me right into the life of Gabriella Liakos and Duke Ryder. This is one HOT and STEAMY story.  Right from the beginning I fell in love with this love story. The Author Melissa Foster does an awesome job of bring the characters to life. I felt like I was on the island with Duke and Gabriella.

They meet because Gabriella’s grandfather wants to sell the island that has been home to their family for generations and now the island is not making any money and they just can’t afford it.

Duke is the investor and with his partners he has great ideas on what he wants to do with the island. Then he goes there and meets Gabriella, she shows him around the island, she doesn’t want the island to change. She isn’t happy about what is going on and doesn’t really want her grandfather to sell it.

The chemistry with Duke and Gabriella is intense and it totally comes through the pages as I was reading it. I am so glad that I read this story of hot steamy and awesomeness. If you love a good love story with a great plot and some heat ok there was quite a bit of steamy scenes, you will love this story.

I personally will need to read the first one and can’t wait to read the rest in this series. It seems like the Ryders are an awesome family. I want to thank Tasty Book Tours and Melissa Foster for this fantastic read.

I received a free copy of a book in exchange for an honest review

Duke forgot the island was a few miles from South Carolina than an island Greece. Claimed by Love by Melissa Foster Click To Tweet
