.
"...love, loss, lies, grief, finding happiness in the face of adversity, romance, humor, bravery, hot hot hot sex scenes, marriages, births and totally awesome characters." --Supportive Business Moms, UK
.
"Like Nora Roberts, Melissa Foster has captivated me with her fantastic, sexy, romantic stories." Kimberly Winning, avid reader
.
You fell in love with Lacy Snow and Dane Braden in SISTERS IN WHITE. See where their hearts take them next in SEA OF LOVE. 
.
SEA OF LOVE is the seventh book in the Love in Bloom series, and the 4th book in The Bradens. While SEA OF LOVE 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. 
.
**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+** SEA OF LOVE a steamy contemporary romance with alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They're flawed, funny, passionate, and very relatable for readers who enjoy adult romance, contemporary romance, and women's fiction. 
.
"Contemporary romance at its hottest. Each Braden sibling left me craving the next. Sensual, sexy, and satisfying, the Braden series is a captivating blend of the dance between lust, love, and life." --Bestselling author Keri Nola
"[The Bradens] A sinfully sexy and heartwarming series," -- Bestselling author Amy Manemann
.
Lacy Snow wasn't looking for love when she met strikingly handsome and seductive Dane Braden. But how could she ignore the six-foot-three darkly handsome god who tagged and researched sharks for a living--and made every nerve in her body tangle into an overly sensitive knot? Even her fear of sharks could not suppress their intense attraction.

As founder of the Brave Foundation, Dane Braden travels from port to port, educating and advocating on behalf of the mammals he adores--and spends his nights finding solace in the arms of strangers. The last thing Dane was looking for when he met Lacy Snow was a relationship, and the last thing he expected was to fall in love.

Fifteen months--and hundreds of flirty emails, steamy phone calls, and sensual video chats--later, they reunite and take passion to a whole new level. But as Lacy's phobia meets Dane's past love life, their steamy romance is upended, and when tragedy strikes, Dane and Lacy are forced to face their deepest fears head-on as they try to navigate their own sea of love.
.
**BONUS** Includes the first chapter (sneak peek) of Bursting with Love (Savannah and Jack), The Bradens, Book Five.

5.0 out of 5 stars Waves of Love 12 Jan 2014
By aiesa1
Format:Kindle Edition
If you have been following the Braden's in Melissa Foster's Love in Bloom Series, Sea of Love will not disappoint you! I am real close to saying it is the best so far! Sweet Lacy has a devilish demon that left it's mark on her leg. Attacked by a shark when she was younger gives her an aversion to the creatures. After months of steamy correspondence with Dane Braden, Lacy tries to overcome her terror of sharks. She must try in order to be a part of his life, since tagging and researching sharks is his compulsion and mission. Lacy becomes more and more a part of Dane's life and he finds himself falling in love! Romance and sparks abound until adversity intervenes. Both must struggle thru shock, hardship, and tragedy in order to keep their love from surrendering to the sea. Trust me when I say you will be left breathless after reading this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Braden has stolen my heart 23 Feb 2014
By Emma
Format:Kindle Edition
The first few chapters are set at Max and Treat's wedding and all I can say is man does Treat know how to throw a wedding. It was beautiful. I loved it and after hearing so much about the dress in Friendship on Fire it was excellent to finally picture Max in it.

Lacy Snow is a brave woman. She has a phobia like a huge phobia and she faces it. That is an achievement. I really liked Lacy. I thought she was a very sweet, clever girl and she had clearly fallen for Dane. Big time! It was obvious from the very first chapter how much she had fallen for him even if she didn't quite know it herself yet.

Kaylie and Danica were excellent sisters. They could have hated Lacy being their half sister and all, but they show nothing but love and concern for Lacy as well as a lot of support.

Dane has what I am becoming to realise is the usual Braden traits loyal, kind, caring and sensitive. Oh and of course stupidly gorgeous. In friendship on fire we catch a slight glimpse of how much he likes Lacy but this multiplies a million times in this book. I really loved seeing the twists and turns in his relationships with Lacy, his best friend Rob and his family.

The Bradens are a loyal family. Once you are in the fold you are protected for life and I love that. I also love Hal's saying "Family knows no boundaries" it is especially true for this family. I can't wait to read Savannah and Hugh's stories in Bursting for Love and Hearts at Play.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book 4 Dane and Macy's story 5 May 2014
By Izzy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Dane and Macy's story is different from the previous Braden stories in that they have already gotten to know each other via email, Skype etc over the previous 15 months before meeting again at Treat and Mac's wedding. In this story the reader discovers that although they love each other they both carry major baggage with them. A good read, more like Treat's journey to love than Rex or Josh's yet different again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Storytelling Transcends Genre 30 April 2014
By clahain
Format:Kindle Edition
SEA OF LOVE is book 7 of Melissa Foster's Love in Bloom series (book 4 of The Bradens sub-series), and it is my favorite so far. The story revolves around marine biologist and shark enthusiast Dane Braden and Lacy Snow, a publicist who specializes in helping non-profits gain exposure and support. The pair met at a family wedding three books back. Now we learn that they've been in touch via email and Skype for months. They finally meet in person again on Cape Cod at the wedding of Dane's older brother. Both of them are as anxious as they are excited. Each has a reason to worry. Dane fears his promiscuous past will come back to haunt him, and Lacy worries that her shark phobia will sink their burgeoning relationship.

Two factors make SEA OF LOVE a standout in an ocean of contemporary romance novels. First, Dane and Lacy are both fully rounded characters with sturdy back stories and believable quirks. Foster arranges for us to know them first as individuals and then as "hero" and "heroine." Not only do both characters change over the course of the book, the alteration is halting and uneven, just the way real people might experience personal transformation.

The second factor contributing to the books success is Foster's ability to set her scenes. Her Cape Cod is so well drawn, I could smell the briny aroma and feel the warm sand between my toes. The chapters on Dane's boat were also completely realistic with enough sensory detail to bring them to life without slowing down the pace or interrupting the narrative. The careful selection of detail also helped build tension in the shark-related sections. I shared both Dane's fascination with these creature, and Lacy's dread as she faced her biggest fear.

As for the sensual sizzle that Foster's books have become known for...The erotic scenes left me blushing for sure, but they didn't overwhelm the story.

An all-around great read.
