"Melissa Foster is synonymous with sexy, swoony, heartfelt romance!" New York Times Bestseller Lauren Blakely 

Librarian Callie Barnes has visions of reading and relaxing--and maybe having a few too many drinks--on her girls' weekend away. Her hopes are crushed when her friends pull into a dude ranch instead of a spa, and she refuses to say longer than one night. That is...until she realizes the ranch is owned by sinfully sexy, and dangerously rugged, Wes Braden--the subject of her late-night fantasies. 

Fearless rancher Wes Braden thinks he's the luckiest guy on the planet when the sweet, sexy librarian from his hometown shows up at his ranch. Their connection is white-hot, making it impossible for either to ignore their carnal desires. Wes is more than willing to convert sweet Callie from chick lit to a world of erotic romance, but Callie ties sex to love, and Wes avoids commitment like the plague. 

Callie is thrust into physically demanding activities that ignite her deepest fears. Luckily, Wes is as tender as he is strong, and he's there every step of the way to help her find her inner strength. With Callie's influence, Wes might even discover that he's been nursing a few fears of his own. Passion pulls Callie and Wes from their safe, comfortable lives into each other's arms, and they're about to find out just how alike they really are.

  • Sexy, sweet romance

    By Ladydi232
    Fated For Love is the second book in the Bradens at Trusty, CO series. It can definitely be read as a standalone. I fell in love with the first book in the series partly because of the awesome small town feel of Trusty, Colorado and I wasn’t sure if I would like this second book a bit less because it takes place outside of the town. But that was not the case at all! I loved Wes and Callie’s story! Callie, a quiet, very unathletic librarian is ‘tricked’ into a weekend at a Dude ranch. But things are looking up when their trip is supervised by her secret crush, Wes Braden. I listened to this story on audiobook on my commute this week and smiled all through the traffic! I can’t wait to listen to more books in this series. -4.5 Stars!-
  • Sweet & Sexy Romance

    By KindleKat64
    I read this book a few years ago and just recently listened to it on Audiobook. I loved it when I read it but BJ Harrison brings all the characters to life in wonderful and wickedly sexy ways. He's an awesome narrator! I love this story line and how everything happens and even the pace it happens. It was just right for Wes & Callie!!! Wes Braden is the hero of this story or maybe I should say the prince (you'll see why). He is tall, dark and handsome and sexy as the day is long. He just oozes genuine charm and is a really nice guy. I personally adore him!! And Callie, well I just love her too! She is just the sweetest until she is alone with Wes and then she becomes a little sex kitten. I love that contrast about her . She has an amazing group of friends who constantly had me laughing out loud. But let's not forget about Sweets! Love that puppy!! And of course, Wes's family is the best! Which if you've read MF's books about the Bradens, you already know!
  • Great Book

    By AshleyHedden
    Fated for Love (The Bradens at Trusty #2) by Melissa Foster was a great read. Callie is a librarian who goes on a girls weekend with her girlfriends. Little did she know she wasn't going where she thought she was. She didn't expect to see Wes Braden there and fall for him. I listened to an audiobook of this and loved listening to Callie and Wes' story. I can't wait to read more by Melissa Foster.
  • A case of opposites attract

    By angiemccune
    Wes Braden is a sweet, sexy rancher. He owns a dude ranch with a partner nearby. As a hometown boy, he’s been familiar with those around town. ;) Callie Barnes is the new assistant librarian in town. Even though she is reserved and quiet, she quickly starts turning heads in town, including the head of Wes. He starts making weekly visits to the library to retrieve books that Callie picks out for him. Both Callie and Wes look forward to the weekly visits, but neither shares those feelings with the other. Callie’s friends tell her they are taking her away to a spa, but instead surprise her with a trip to Wes’s ranch, without even knowing about Wes. When the girls arrive, and his eyes meet hers, they are both shocked. They’ve been pushing their attraction aside for weeks, but they cannot deny it any longer. One obstacle: Callie has deep fears around many of the things involved with being on a ranch including horseback riding, deep water, and heights. Wes is drawn to Callie and wants to help her push beyond her fears, but will also do anything to make her comfortable. While working through her fears, they continue to grow closer and their feelings (and passions) bloom. Callie’s question, is this a vacation fling? What happens when they go home? I read this book when it was first released in print. I truly enjoyed getting to remember and gain new perspective by listening to the audio version!
  • So good!

    By SeasideCarr
    This was a lively, sexy, sweet novel that'll leave you craving more. Especially of Wes. He's sexy, swoon-worthy, loving hero who's rugged and sweet. He's charming and sweeps Callie the introvert librarian off her feet. The adventures as well as the misadventure Callie went on were heart felt and fun to read. I absolutely adored this new addition of the LIB series. The audio book was pleasant to listen to. B.J Harrison did such a good job telling the story. The nuisances of the characters was spot on and I couldn't help but smiling and laughing throughout the book.
  • One of my Favorites of the Trusty Bradens

    By Blues Girl 94
    This is one of my favorites of the Trusty Bradens. I loved listening to it just as much as I did reading it. BJ Harrison does a great job with a Colorado Country accent. Callie has moved from Denver to Trusty to work as the assistant librarian. She loves her books and is hoping to become the head librarian when the current one retires. Every Thursday she picks out books for Wes Braden based on what he likes to read. She can't wait for Thursday's when she gets to see him. Wes owns a dude ranch and comes to the library on Thursdays to see Callie and get books that she picks out for him. Thursday's are his favorite day of the week because he gets to see Callie. Callie thinks that her friends are taking her to a spa for the weekend to relax and get pampered. She is surprised when they take her to a dude ranch instead. Unprepared for a dude ranch but willing to try and face her fears, Callie decides to stay when she realizes that it is Wes's dude ranch that they are at. With the help of Wes and her friends, Callie attempts to get out of her comfort zone and face her fears. Sparks fly and Callie and Wes discover that they both have feelings for one another and decide to see where things go. When the weekend comes to an end Callie wonders if they will still have sparks when the real world sets in. This book is sweet with lots of Heat. You will fall in love with Callie and Wes and want to go to a dude ranch for the weekend.
  • The librarian and the rancher

    By Nanakay2
    I read this book and also listened to the audio version and enjoyed it greatly. The narration was well done and I found myself getting caught up in the story all over again even though I had already read the print version! Callie Barnes presents herself as a demure, quiet librarian but beneath that shy exterior, she is secretly harboring a crush on Wes Braden. She looks forward to Thursday each week when she knows that he will be coming into the library to pick up the books she has picked out for him. He gets her heart beating faster and her pulse racing! Wes owns a "dude ranch" outside of town and is the object of many single women's fantasies in the town of Trusty Colorado. He has made it a practice to not get involved with any of the women who visit his ranch... business and pleasure do not mix well in his mind... but that will soon change! Little does Callie know that he looks forward to his Thursday library trips as well! Callie has been invited to join her best friends for a spa weekend and is looking forward to relaxing with her friends. But what she does not know is that the spa weekend is really a weekend at a dude ranch... and it is the ranch owned by none other than Wes. He has no idea that she is part of the group checking in and is surprised and quite pleased to find out she will be spending time there. Over the time spent at the ranch, Callie is forced to face her fears and her feelings for Wes. He realizes the depth of his feelings for Callie and his rule of not mixing business with pleasure does not seem so important any longer. Melissa's books contain just the right mix of emotion and of sexiness and this is no exception. I would recommend this book without hesitation.

  • Holy Hotness

    By Webettes
    Callie is a shy librarian who looks forward to her Thursdays. That's when hunky West Braden comes into the library where she works. Callie's friends trick her into a weekend at a dude ranch. Little does Callie know Wes ownes the ranch. Wes teaches Callie how to step out if her comfort zone. Wes is so romantic. This is a beautiful love story. I adore the naration by B.J. Harrison. The way his voices change with the difference characters is great. I truly love the convince of audio books.
