Lovers at Heart

Book 1, Love in Bloom: The Bradens - Treat Braden

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


The Bradens are a series of stand-alone romances that may also be enjoyed as part of the larger Love in Bloom series.

***LOVERS AT HEART is a SILVER MEDAL WINNER in the Readers' Favorite Awards - Contemporary Romance Category***

LOVERS AT HEART is the first book in The Bradens and the fourth book in the Love in Bloom series (Snow Sisters, The Bradens, The Remingtons, & Seaside Summers). While LOVERS AT HEART can be read as a stand-alone novel, for even more reading enjoyment you may want to read the Love in Bloom series in series order.

Handsome, wealthy resort owner Treat Braden is used to getting what he wants. When Max Armstrong walked into his life six months earlier, he saw right through the efficient and capable façade she wore like a shield, to the sweet, sensual woman who lay beneath. She sparked an unfamiliar desire in him for more than a one-night stand, leaving his heart reeling and his blood boiling. But one mistake caused her to turn away, and now, after six months of longing for the one woman he cannot have, he’s going home to try to forget her altogether.

Max Armstrong has a successful career, a comfortable lifestyle, and she’s never needed a man to help her find her way—until Treat Braden caught her attention at a wedding in Nassau, causing a surge of emotions too reminiscent of the painful past she’d spent years trying to forget. Max will do anything to avoid reliving that pain—including forgoing her toe-curling, heart-pounding desire for Treat.

When a chance encounter turns into a night of intense passion, Treat realizes that the mistake he made six months earlier may cause him to lose Max completely. He will do everything within his power to win her heart forever—and Max is forced to face her hurtful past head on for the man she cannot help but love.

Customer Reviews

Not for me

Really tried to finish this but I gave up halfway through the book. A bit too cheesy.


The book was too slow for me. I generally will not put down a good book. This book was okay but it took me four days to read it.

I liked the story but it lacked something for me to stay interested from start to finish. I am going to try book two and see how Rex story goes. Wish me luck

Melodramatic for no reason.

I wanted to like this book but it could have been a lot better. The love story is insubstantial and immature, family drama (while understandable) a bit overwhelming for only one of the books in a series, and the their issues could have been treated better. There were also a lot of grammatical issues.
