Publisher's Summary

The Bradens are a series of sexy standalone romances. These hot contemporary romance novels feature alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They're flawed, funny, passionate, and relatable to listeners who enjoy new adult romance, contemporary romance, and women's fiction.

Fall in love with Ty Braden, a world-renowned mountain climber and nature photographer. He's about to take on his toughest assignment yet - winning the heart of the one that got away.

Do you believe in fate?

World-renowned mountain climber and nature photographer Ty Braden never believed in second dates, much less heart-pounding, steal-his-breath love. But that was before a trip to Saint-Luc, where he met funny, strong, and entrancingly beautiful Aiyla Bell, a ski instructor and fellow photographer whose hopes and dreams, and love of the outdoors, aligned perfectly with his - and whose kisses alone turned him inside out.

After spending five magical days and four sweet, soulful nights falling in love, Aiyla couldn't imagine a day without Ty. But when he asked her to go with him on his next assignment, his reputation for having women at his beck and call stopped her from upending the life she'd worked so hard to create.

Months later, fate steps in when a chance encounter brings Ty and Aiyla together for a five-day wilderness event held in the Colorado Mountains. Their deep, passionate connection is stronger than ever, and Ty is bound and determined not to lose her again. But when tragedy strikes and their worlds are turned upside down, their love faces the truest test of all.

Amazing Story!

Having spent five days together in Switzerland, Ty and Aiyla left it up to fate if they were to meet again. Four months later while participating in a charity event, fate intervened and Ty and Aiyla are once again at the same place at the same time. While competing, Aiyla begins to experience some pain in her leg. Ty encourages her to let Dr. John Butterscotch, who is also competing at the event and his brother Cole's business partner, take a look at her leg. John suggests she let him run some tests while they are in Peaceful Harbor for Ty's sister's wedding. The news is devastating and Ty is committed to see Aiyla through it and the difficult decision she has to make.

You will go through so many feelings reading or listening to Ty and Aiyla's story; it's a different type of love story to get to their HEA. BJ Harrison does an amazing job narrating.

Beautiful and Heartwarming Story!

This is probably one of my favorites of all Melissa’s books. From the characters to the family to the actual story line everything about it spoke to my heart and soul. BJ Harrison’s narration as always was impeccable! Ty and Aiyla's story was amazing. Ty is so wonderful, supportive and protective and Aiyla is so strong and determined. Their love is unbreakable. From fate putting them back into each others' arms to going through one of the hardest things a person will ever have to go through, it was simply beautiful, heartwarming and emotional and so well written. You could absolutely tell the research that the author put into it, not that it surprises me at all. Although the story is a bit unconventional from your typical funloving romance, at the same time there was plenty of flirty, fun and sexy times and lots of family fun to balance it. I loved it!!!

Wonderful Emotional Story!

This is the sixth book in The Bradens at Peaceful Harbor Series, and this is a wonderful addition to the Series. Thrill of Love is an emotional, and beautiful second chance to love. Ty is handsome, very supportive, and caring. Aiyla is beautiful and strong. They are perfect together. The story has drama, twists, faith and love. The family spirit in this story is amazing. The supporting characters are great. I love these Series with intertwined characters. B.J. Harrison did a great job with the narration. I enjoyed it!

An incredible love.

First let me say I do love Melissa Foster books along with the narration of BJ Harrison. I think the current one is always the best until I listen to the next. But this book featuring Ty Braden and Aiyla Bell is incredible. In my opinion Melissa's strong suit is her character development and this book is no different. This story is filled with fate, love and life changing events. You will experience the love of the entire Ace Braden Family. During the course of reading this tears were trickling down my face without my knowledge or permission. Anyone would want the kind of love Ty has for Aiyla. BJ Harrison’s narration let the compassion and emotion shine through. Kudos to Melissa Foster. A true 10 star book.

Great Audiobook

Thrill of Love is a great audiobook. B.J. Harrison was the narrator and he does a terrific job changing his voices to get into character. This is the story of Ty Braden, a mountain climber and photographer, and Aiyla Bell, photographer for her coffee table books/ski instructor/hiking guide. Ty and Aiyla had previously met in Saint-luc for 5 incredible days. Ty asked Aiyla to travel with him after the 5 days and see where it would take him but Aiyla turned him down because she knew of his reputation and she was just starting her business. She told Ty to leave it to fate and if fate brings them together then so be it. They promised each other not to look each other up and not exchange numbers. Well i guess fate wanted them together because they find each other again and Ty promises never to let her get away again. Pure magical. I could not stop reading. They share such great chemistry that steam is literally radiating from them. I enjoyed their story very much.

Amazing Bradens

When listening to a book rather than reading it I find that I can let the words I am hearing soak into me. I hear tones, feelings, and emotions that I missed while reading the book. I catch phrases, sentences, and thoughts that I may have skimmed over while reading. While listening to Thrill of Love I decided that I need a Braden playground and that Aiyla is a very lucky girl to have one to herself. Ty is also lucky to have let fate take control and trust that he would find the love of his life after leaving her behind. BJ Harrison is phenomenal. He is a narrator that knows how to use his voice to pull the listener in and keep them invested in the story.


Grab your Kleenex. I am not sure that I have ever cried in sadness during one of Melissa Foster’s Love in Bloom series books. Yet with Ty and Aiyla’s story, I full out had tears rolling down my cheeks. Do not get me wrong, this is a wonderful book with amazing characters.

Thrill of Love is a story of second chances and believing in fate. Ty Braden, sigh… love those Braden men… meets the woman of his dreams but his reputation gets in the way of their relationship. Promises of not to chase Aiyla down leave it up to fate to bring them back together. Of course, in true Melissa Foster style fate steps in and brings them back together. It is obvious from the beginning that something is off with Aiyla and she is fighting to push through her pain. I love that Ty doesn’t let her just put her pain aside and makes her see his doctor friend, Speed, to find out what is happening. Then when they find out what they are dealing with there is never a doubt that together they can conquer all things. Love wins out, as it should.

The Braden creed of Family knows no boundaries is proven over and over with these strong, proud, alpha Braden men. Ty Braden is a testament that being a Braden is a way of life, one that must be lived up to, respected, and loved.

Emotional and amazing

This is an amazing book! One of the most emotional books I’ve read by Melissa, but I absolutely adored it! I did see what was going to happen almost immediately, but Melissa told the story with such grace that I couldn’t put the book down until I finished. The audiobook version is great also. The narrator is so easy to listen to and makes the characters come alive.

Perfect

I just knew ty would find a strong willed, brave, outdoorsy girl and Aiyla didn’t disappoint. The book did get a little dark but following the Braden’s as they all help ty and Aiyla through was hart warming.

destiny is destiny

Holy cow this was an amazing book, utterly, wholeheartedly amazeballs. It's not often I laugh, cry, get angry and fall in love all in the same story but here is the masterpiece that truly delivers all the feals!!! This book had momentum and it just kept building and building I couldn't put it down. BJ Harrison did an eloquent job on portraying not only the characters but expressing each genuine emotion, expression, and tone in the whole book. It was seamless, and often you forget it's one person narrating the story. There's so much to say about this book, the competitive streak between Ty and Aiyla, the perseverance they show when life is life, it's amazing and so realistic. This is a book has so much to offer, I cannot tell the plot without giving it away it's soooo good. A heartwarming and heartwrenching story all in one, just in time for the holiday season...I mean it could be a Hallmark movie...I'm just saying it's sooo damn good...don't miss out.

When fate really happens

Ty and Aiyla first met in a small town called Saint Luc, they decided not to swop numbers and let fate take a hand. Months later fate has brought them back together in Colorado. Once again they are fated to be together, when Aiyla suffered an injury Ty steps up and helps them both over the finish line. The injury then turns into something that is life changing, Ty was the original playboy and this news brings out a side that nobody thought he had. It shows he will do anything for his woman and Aiyla knows she has found her man. A great story brought to life by great narration again.
